    Blockchain technology ensures anonymity of the voters as they are veiled from any probable suppression. It uses an encrypted key that guarantees heightened security and privacy in comparison to the traditional ballot boxes. A blockchain is also immutable; it provides for a hassle-free auditing without the risk of tampering. The most pivotal security advantage of the blockchain is decentralisation. As the ledger is distributed across a public network, there is nothing like a single storage base. This aspect makes it difficult and almost impossible to hack a blockchain system.

    "Blockchain technology provides all of the characteristics you would want in a platform that is arguably the most important part of a democratic society; it’s fault-tolerant, you cannot change the past, you cannot hack the present, you cannot alter the access to the system, every node with access can see the exact same results, and every vote can be irrefutably traced to its source without sacrificing a voter's vote anonymity. End to end verifiable voting systems will give the voter the ability to verify if their vote is correctly recorded and correctly counted, for instance, if a ballot is missing, in transit or modified, it can even be detected by the voter and caught before the election is over."

    For years, Bitcoin detractors and supporters alike have noted that the blockchain is going to be useful regardless of the success or failure of Bitcoin. Votem has found one way it could integrally change society. The biggest reason millennials did not vote was for lack of convenience, and one of the big controversies in this last presidential election was the claim that “illegal immigrants had cast millions of votes.” These problems can be eliminated through technology, and Votem seems the most promising approach at present.

    Why it's important: While we continue to see bitcoin values increase, it's important to remember that blockchain enables far more than purely digital currency. Hacking aside, voter turnaround is perennially low, and well-intentioned voters face obstacles that range from power outages to transportation issues and misplaced paper ballots. Imagine the implications of removing those obstacles -- how many more issues could be opened to the public? How many highly controversial issues designed purely to encourage voter turnout would go away?
