Popular petitions are an important part of the political process in Brazil, but current methodology makes them almost impossible to use. Now the country is turning to the Ethereum blockchain for a solution.
In many political systems, the voice of the people is often not heard. To combat such a situation, Brazil has an intriguing mechanism embedded within its constitution: popular petitions. Successful popular petitions must be heard within the country’s legislature, but there are some significant hurdles lying in wait for activists who wish to use them. However, Brazil is turning to the power of the Ethereum blockchain to make signing and verifying popular petitions so much easier.
