‘evoto’ is a secure, transparent digital voting system based on blockchain technologies. The platform is aimed at businesses, unions, and governments, offering a more cost effective alternative to physical, postal voting systems, or unverifiable digital ‘black box’ systems. Additionally, users of evoto will be confident that their vote was counted and unchanged whilst retaining their anonymity; they can even go as far as to count the results themselves if they wish. A subscription based service will be offered to clients, limiting the number of ballots and users, as well as offering additional support and installation options. Migration to the platform will be assisted through additional tools, allowing employees of a company to be added en-masse, accelerating the voting process.
