The author and Everscale community member, Ben Batman, tells how the DeVote project based on the Everscale blockchain is becoming increasingly widespread in the US electoral system and how by using a decentralized, distributed ledger to store and manage ballots, it is possible to achieve a high level of security and anonymity.
DeVote uses anonymity technology GROTH16 which separates voter affidavits from voter ballots. This ensures that every vote is completely anonymous. So, DeVote combines the convenience of remote voting with the security and anonymity of traditional ballot boxes.
Thanks to the blockchain technologies the system will be able to handle a large number of votes without any centralized points of failure.
