Development update

1. Authentication improvements

To cater to the growing needs and use cases of our customers, our development team has been integrating the platform to work with a new authentication method — ‘Amazon Cognito’. Aside from the existing passwordless authentication we have in place using our third party ‘Auth0’, this new authentication method enables users to create their own account, sign up through social media accounts, and ensures a smoother end-to-end voting and decision making process for everyone. It also makes integration with a customer’s internal systems far easier, and is a vital piece in the turn-key voting product we are currently building.

2. Donations/Payments

We have also been building out the capability to allow donations through the Horizon State platform for businesses, charities and political candidates using a payment gateway. We expect to roll this out over the next month for candidates in India, and see this as a vital feature for many of our future customers. As with all Horizon State income, the full amount of commission charged for this service will be passed through our token mechanics.

3. Turn-key voting feature on the Horizon State Platform

  • Enable automatic billing;
  • Invite and manage their users to the community; and
  • Create a variety of votes stored on the blockchain using the decision making tools we have available.
