Voatz

Misc

Description:


WARNING! The blockchain in use is PRIVATE, so it's no more secure than a centralized company's server(s). Private blockchains are useless for security.

A blockchain voating system developed by MIT for more secure elections. Most promoted feature is being able to vote from your phone from anywhere, which, in all honesty, is NOT a secure option. It's impossible to prove the voter wasn't coerced. For security, voters should still show up in person, but can add a layer of security by ALSO using their phone WHILE in-person voting. Since it's on a blockchain, the voter can immediately verify their vote. A major security flaw in Voatz is they use a PRIVATE blockchain, which invalidates the entire thing.

Decentralization

Voatz will not work without centralized DNS. It will not work without central servers. User accounts are self-hosted, meaning the user is in full control. An uncensorable and unstoppable monetization system is NOT supported.
