Candidate Andrew Yang says if he wins the 2020 United States presidential election blockchain-based mobile voting will be implemented by him. On his campaign web site, the block chain advocate says he considers American citizens should have the choice of voting on a mobile device with blockchain technology used for verification purposes.
“It is absurd that in 2020 we’re still standing in line All Day”
Yang also believes that, concerning security risks votes machines are equally susceptible to hackers as technology is. He wrote:
“It is ridiculous that in 2020 we have been still standing in line all day to vote in antiquated voting booths. It really is 100% technically possible to possess fraud-proof voting employing the block-chain. This might revolutionise true democracy and boost involvement to include all Americans- people without smart phones may use the legacy system and lines will be very short.”
As an upshot, Yang expects that mobile voting will induce involvement . On his website, the offender asserts presidential elections now have about 50% involvement from people — and very low turnout”rewards extreme points of perspective instead of the most popular will.”
Last month, a new political action committee behind Yang announced it’s going to accept contributions in Bitcoin via the Lightning Network. In April, Yang required clear tips on crypto currencies for companies, investors and individuals — adding that block-chain has enormous possibility.
As previously reported by many magazines, the ruling party of the Russian Federation, United Russia, established a blockchain-based platform for voting in elections in March. It helps citizens to vote on line with vote counting supported by block chain technology to prevent tampering.
