The use of blockchain in the public sector reached another milestone this month when West Virginia became the first U.S. state to allow internet voting by blockchain in primary elections.
While the voter participation through this platform was estimated to be small, the intention of the administrators was to test the technology in a pilot project with no immediate plans to implement it at a larger scale.
Matt and Kelso review the current challenges of voting, the potential for blockchain to revolutionize, and a few projects that are already operating in the U.S., Africa, and South America.
