Pro-Bitcoin Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang Wants to “Revolutionize Democracy” by Using Blockchain in Voting

  • “Ridiculous” to use antiquated voting booths
  • It is 100% technically possible to have fraud proof voting on mobile phones using blockchain, said Andrew Yang
  • Effect: very short lines, dramatic increase in participation, and revolutionizing true democracy

Voting is hard and time consuming, that has barely over 50 percent of the people turning over for presidential elections.

As a solution to this problem, Andrew Yang is proposing the use of blockchain to enable voting via a mobile device.

First, he added cryptos and its regulation to its presidential policy.

Yang is a pro-Bitcoin 2020 Presidential candidate that added cryptocurrencies to its list of priorities. In his campaign’s policies page, Yang has shared that “blockchain has vast potential,” while calling for “clear guidelines” for regulating digital assets.

A tech-savvy lawyer, Yang who hails from the startup scene created a non-profit to “revitalize American cities and communities through entrepreneurship,” and crypto adoption.

Now, he wishes to make blockchain an integral part of the voting process.

His latest policy is to modernize voting infrastructure is to make it easier and more secure to vote, as such increasing the number of voters participating in the democracy. The idea is to further reduce inconsistent processes between states and restore confidence and engagement in the democratic process.

In the current voting scenario, the attendance in local and state elections is much lower than 50%.

Given the advances in technology, Yang argues against waiting in line at the polling station to cast votes. Moreover, machines used in most locales are also vulnerable to hacking and tampering.

According to him, it’s just plain “ridiculous” that we are still making use of antiquated voting booths when it is 100% technically possible to have fraud proof voting.

As such, “Americans should be able to vote via their mobile device, with verification done via blockchain,” argues Yang.

This he says, would “revolutionize true democracy” and increase the participation “dramatically,” in all elections, be it, local, state, and federal.
