A ‘Blockchaining’ Democracy

  • Suprit Atul Gandhi
Keywords: Blockchain, Genesis block, Chain integrity, Hashing.


The very survival of democracy lies in election. Yet, in the 21st century where electronic electoral ballots are used there exists a slightest chance of voting machine tampering. Frequent allegations by some politicians regarding tampering and the rise of blockchaining ecosystem gave a firm support to this idea. Using this idea, elections not only will be more secured for a highly populated democracy like India but also, it will foster a larger participation of public, since they can vote from home too.
