Dear Cardano Team,
Please consider my proposal and contact me if you would like me to be part of the team developing the below.
Building a voting system on Cardano.
Collaborate with governments to build a real voting system that works.
Overview… Every time an elections come there is token distributed to all eligible addresses (citizens eligible to vote), they are able to spend(send) their token on their candidate(receiving address).
This makes it so easy as all votes will be on a public ledger, all votes are automatically counted and everyone can check where their vote went without sharing who they voted for or their data.
Everyone over 18 is eligible to vote has some kind of ID number/Passport number or something similar. This code is a string in most cases that can be used as a “Public key to vote” and this is nothing new every government has a DB of that available.
The public key receives an airdrop of 1 voting token(bulletin) when elections come.
This token can only be spent on the voting network and the vote is sent to the address of the desired candidate.
Opposition parties all around the world will try to push that forward as if the leading party opposes that it will be horrible PR and a ground to say that they are cheating on elections. Political suicide. If we don’t do it someone else will do it.
- Real Use Case
- Real world problem - I am from Eastern Europe and elections are rigged since 2011. It is not only PM/President elections it is local governance, everywhere.
- If Cardano is considering itself revolutionary it is time to do that and show it’s potential.
- The idea expands a bit above that and I have few other suggestions how to make that work. Please contact me if you consider the project viable and would like my assistance.
Many thanks and kind regards,
