ThunderCore Achieved Successful Technology Integration with i-Voting Platform
Taipei has been actively promoting the development of public participation platforms such as i-Voting in recent years. Now, i-Voting is further integrated with ThunderCore’s blockchain technology. Supported by ThunderCore technology, every vote of a poll obtained on the website will be chained on ThunderCore, and the process and results can be safely and instantly recorded on the chain, so that the public can trace back and check the data through a link whenever and wherever. In this way, the public policy platform becomes more credible (https://ivoting.taipei/).
Recently, a participative budgeting of Taipei exactly draws on i-Voting. Through proposal presentation, residents’ assembly, transformation workshop, public exhibition and other steps, citizens come up with ideas, discuss and put forward a proposal. An i-Voting poll is synchronously carried out by 12 administrative regions to determine the priority of some public budget expenditure and make decisions on effective and reasonable allocation of public resources.
Following the successful technology integration of i-Voting with ThunderCore, the votes on the first day of the poll (2020.06.01) already reached more than 19,400. Blockchain technology allows users to cooperate through consensus protocol even if they do not know and trust each other. There used to be problems like voting fraud and vote checking error. Thanks to ThunderCore’s technology, the public can view public records at any time on the designated ThunderCore Scan record platform. The results are all anonymous and can be checked on ThunderCore’s public chain. That practices the philosophy of “universal participation, openness and transparency”. Any misconduct will be found and recorded by the verification mechanism. (https://dappbirds.com/dapp-info/detail?id=4527)
Today, many people already know blockchain technology has the advantages of being “open, transparent and tamperproof”, but only a handful of blockchain programs can eventually be applied. We expect the future applications of blockchain can be closer to the daily life of the public, so that the whole people can get engaged to “actuate a smart city” — that means using blockchain technology to empower a smart city, such as blockchain supported certification of education background, i-Voting, Fintech, public parking lots, social housing and draw for a public care center.
