CoinDesk just published an article about how crypto can help people vote from their own personal devices, at home. No need to touch the same screens as everyone else and spread germs:
What is the difference between Intercoin, MaidSAFE, and Holochain, which one is best for voting, and why?
Intercoin has interactivity mini-ledgers that will power community coins and local fintech for various interoperable distributed ledger technologies in each sidechain of Intercoin. This architecture is far more effective for voting than just Blockchain based protocols like Holochain or MaidSAFE. Not that they wouldn’t be good enough for voting on. But would lack the infinite possibilities of local fintech to optimize and secure voting.
To be fair @Jason MaidSAFE also has mini-ledgers. They’re building a system more for file storage, not financial applications. Holochain has centralized components. Those projects are evolving, though, for example MaidSAFE has seemed to go away from non-divisible “safecoins”, even. At the moment, Intercoin may be one of the only ambitious projects with non-divisible coins.
This is a great opportunity to be introduced to the elections soon. The Coronavirus has changed our lives and now we have to beware of mass gatherings. It’s very relevant during a pandemic.
