The Expanse Project has just announced they have developed a new Blockchain-based voting platform with the potential to change the dynamics of future elections. It provides a facility for voting on an immutable Blockchain, storing the votes forever, tamper-proof, all around the world.

Cast your vote using the Expanse blockchain demo here.

The brainchild of Expanse co-founder and lead developer, Christopher Franko, this platform is community-managed and runs on a decentralized application platform designed to allow more efficient mining which also enables dApp developers to create more powerful applications and innovations.

“Election night is coming soon for the U.S., so now is a great time to talk about the advantages of voting using the Expanse Blockchain,” said Franko.

 

“The current voting systems people use are archaic and have absurdities like ‘hanging chads,’ with people counting and recounting. The results continually come into question, and all indications are that the results of this year’s U.S. presidential election will be particularly dubious.”

With a true identity system to be attached later, Expanse says they have prototyped a nearly perfect voting system. One person, one vote — everyone can vote easily. If anyone were to cheat, that cheat would also be recorded on the Blockchain to ferret out later. 

“This makes for a great time to vote on the Expanse Blockchain yourself with our new decentralized voting application. While there is no identity system attached to this yet, and this is a tech demonstration rather than actual voting, this Dapp can still show how easy, accurate, and tamper-proof future voting on the Blockchain could be, unlike archaic systems in use today,” added James Clayton, Expanse co-founder and Community Manager.
