US presidential candidate supports the idea of voting on the blockchain
2020 U.S. presidential candidate Andrew Young to integrate blockchain into the voting process.
Young writes on his website: “It’s ridiculous that in 2020 we will still have to wait in line for hours to vote in outdated voting booths.”.
Young argues that it is already fully technically feasible to implement a fraud-free mobile voting process..
“This is how we can transform true democracy and increase participation in elections to attract all Americans. Those who do not have a smartphone can use the old system – the queues will be much shorter, ”he says..
At the same time, experts of the Technology Review magazine of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology note that the use of blockchain in voting does not reduce, but, on the contrary, increases the risks of cybersecurity. In particular, their doubts are related to the protection of Internet-connected devices and the possibility of creating an “online system that will preserve all the attributes that we count on in democratic elections.”.
Earlier, Young promised to streamline the regulation of the cryptocurrency market if he is elected president of the United States..
