Universal Governance Protocol Beta Successful Deployment & Mobius Community Prize DApp Winner
The Mobius Global Hackathon Community Prize winner goes to Swinvoice in the DApp Store. Swinvoice is an invoicing system that makes it easy for users to send invoice and receive payment using Mobius (MOBI), Stellar (XLM), and credit/debit card charges. Swinvoice also supports P2P payments in escrow.
The winner was selected in-app by the community using Mobius’ Universal Governance Protocol voting method in beta. The successful deployment of the Universal Governance Protocol allowed community members to cast 1 vote for their favorite DApp in the competition by staking 5,000 MOBI.
Audit Voting Results for Mobius’ Universal Governance Protocol
The Mobius Global Hackathon Community Prize vote results can be found here:
For example, let’s verify the following account voted for option ‘3’: `GBG2OQJEB44RSH54Q74BBD4VHFBQDUDXO7IG3NVSBYRFCZB3GVN4EGH3`
1. Look for a payment from the voter’s account to `GDAPPTUC3DQEHBK6YM4EZLSQC3N3ZSDFT6HUFELK73IXZ3EEK5YJGO2H`: https://stellarchain.io/address/GDAPPTUC3DQEHBK6YM4EZLSQC3N3ZSDFT6HUFELK73IXZ3EEK5YJGO2H
2. Click on the Transaction ID in the payment header to open the transaction page. In our example it’s the following: https://stellarchain.io/tx/d8afad4f8689dcbf3f9588dc4b98473eac48ddd7308d5e105af4bbff6e82d7f9
3. Get the vote string by concatenating the vote option, voter account, and the secret string: `xgJEHy3f6cGbgrbkHGtvHbFp`. In our example, we’ll get: `3GBG2OQJEB44RSH54Q74BBD4VHFBQDUDXO7IG3NVSBYRFCZB3GVN4EGH3xgJEHy3f6cGbgrbkHGtvHbFp`
4. Calculate SHA256 base64 digest from the vote string (for example, using https://approsto.com/sha-generator/), in our case we get: `gibuXcIyeb9RDC/IRgyuBmibdLGLZ9yPKEt0q1u56Dk`
5. Verify that the calculated value equals the vote transaction memo hash.
Auditing blockchain-based voting with Mobius makes things more transparent, decentralized, and verifiable. Yet, another real world use case Mobius is delivering for mass application.
