Moscow voting blokcchain

Moscow authorities have opened an entry to participate in online voting on constitutional amendments. The transparency of the vote will be ensured by the blockchain, the capital’s mayor’s website says.

Voting will last from June 25 to 30. The message indicates that the blockchain will ensure the anonymity and encryption of each vote:

“At the same time, there are two encryption keys: one is located at the user, and the second is divided into several parts and is stored by different participants until the end of the vote.”
