Blockchain technology can be adapted to suit all kinds of needs, most of which extend far beyond the realm of finance. Decentralizing the concept of voting is one of the most interesting prospects to keep an eye on, especially now that Global Arena Holding is exploring the boundaries of this idea. Leveraging Bitcoin’s platform technologies to create a new breed of general election sounds quite appealing.
Global Election Services Inc Looks Into Secured Blockchain Voting
There are many use cases at our disposal to incorporate blockchain technology, as this protocol offers unprecedented transparency, accountability, and real-time updates. What may be even more appealing about this technology is how it is freely available, as the original developers made it open source for anybody to use.
It should come as no surprise to find out that Global Arena Holding took a keen interest in exploring the boundaries of blockchain technology. The company is well known for its focus on acquiring technologies, patents, and companies, priding themselves upon leveraging blockchain technology for various needs.
Global Election Services, Inc. is a subsidiary company of Global Area Holding, working on exploring the possibilities of secured blockchain voting applications. Many people around the world are unhappy with the current voting system, which offers no transparency at all. However, voter information has to be kept safe and secure at all times as well.
“We have a sizable, longstanding client list, which speaks volumes to the quality and reputation of our elections services. Our intended expansion using secured blockchain voting platforms, however inviting it may be, must maintain the surety of a safe and secure voting process — the caliber of which GES’ team is known for. We’re confident, that if there is any such technology that can support the expansion of GES and advance ballot elections into a high-tech world, ‘the blockchain’ is it.” – Global Election Services CEO Maralin Falik explained.
Ballot elections, in their traditional form, require a lot of manual work regarding verifying and processing all votes. Such a painstaking process could be simplified by a fair margin while removing any doubt concerning the legitimacy of the counting in the meantime. This is exactly what Global Election Services is hoping to achieve.
Our society has evolved towards a lifestyle with a heavy focus on the digital aspect, and the voting process should follow that same line of thought. At the top of the priority list are themes such as making the voting process faster, more secure, and most importantly, tamper-proof. While that may sound easier said than done, relying on blockchain technology will be a major step in the right direction.
Harnessing The Power of Blockchain Technology
Global Arena Holding and its subsidiary are bringing the concept of secured blockchain voting to consumers all over the world. If everything goes according to plan, this new protocol will play a huge role in the election services industry, going forward. Not only will the vote counting be transparent in real-time for anyone to see, but it will also help keep the voter’s identity hidden from prying eyes.
More and more companies are focusing on bringing blockchain technology-based solutions to the masses. Our entire society is destined to be shaken up a fair bit over the next few years, and closed-down non-transparent ecosystems will no longer be a viable option. Any self-respecting company or business is already working on their own blockchain-based platforms, and everyone else will be late to the party.
