So far, numerous advancements have been made when it comes down to implementing blockchain technology. Recent reports indicate that the Blockchain Technologies Corp, a New York-based blockchain firm that strives to provide voting solutions, has been chosen by the New York Libertarian Party, the NYLP, to provide the election services during the 2016 State Convention of the party.
NYLP’s 2016 State Convention will be carried out three days from now, on the 30th of April. The event will feature party elections alongside with a presidential debate, seminars on various topics alongside with a musical performance. As reported, the event will cover the election of officers, while also nominating the US Senate Candidate, and approving a couple of law amendments. As the Blockchain Technologies Corp has been chosen to provide the balloted-election services, the results will be permanently recorded on the blockchain, thus providing an easier voting experience, alongside with increased security.
In a recent press statement, Nick Spanos, the CEO of the Blockchain Technologies Corp stated that: “Recent headlines show problems during the presidential primaries — voting machines not working on election day, allegations of fraud, and registered voters being turned away from the polls. As the world’s premier democracy, the US must set an example for others to follow. BTC is bringing trust, transparency, and efficiency to elections, and thereby restoring faith in democracy and increased voter enfranchisement.”
Not long ago, the group provided similar voting services for the 2016 State Convention of the Libertarian Party of Texas, and managed to do an excellent job.
