From the time voting was first Introduced in Greece by Cleisthenes in 508 BC, through today, voting has served as the cornerstone of the democratic decision making process. Unfortunately, many voting systems have been difficult to secure and scale, leading to modern recounts, contested results, and accusations of fraud. Now, 2526 years after the first known vote, Validity is happy to announce Validity elections, a blockchain based voting platform designed to restore confidence, transparency, and integrity to the voting process.
Using a combination of Blockchain technology and asymmetric key pair identity management, Validity voting provides a transparent, integrated, and easily validated voting platform for multi-person decision making. By leveraging Blockchain technology, Validity Voting bypasses common shortcomings of traditional voting systems including recounts, challenges, double voting, and fraud. All election data and votes are recorded on-chain, allowing for near-time observation, counting, and verification by any third party running the SmartChain application.
Validity elections are designed for applications ranging from project management and club votes, to political elections and shareholder voting. We at Validity believe that simple, reliable and secure voting systems are a cornerstone of free governance. The Validity Elections platform will be available to anyone who has registered an identity on the Validity SmartChain. While the development team will be using this platform for Validity blockchain and SmartChain governance, everyone can hold an election, on any topic or for any purpose, at anytime.
