Russia Is Leading the Push for Blockchain Democracy
Russia may not be known as a defender of democracy, but the capital city of Moscow is using an ethereum-based voting platform to change that.
A hacker has attempted to disrupt a blockchain voting system currently being used to help decide constitutional changes in the Russian Federation.
A blockchain system that will soon be used to allow Moscow residents to vote in elections is currently easy to hack, according to a researcher.
The vulnerability allowed users votes in the recent constitutional poll to be decrypted, Russian journalists found.
Russia's capital is seeking a contractor to build an ethereum-based system to host some of the city's administrative services.
Muscovites can now vote on things like whether to change the building entrance door or hire a new management company using an ethereum-based platform.
