The first round of presidential elections in Poland will take place in a week. Of course, it is preceded by a mass of public opinion polls about who will become our country’s president. The iVoting survey – a blockchain startup that has been building a platform for voting in a variety of choices – is also available online since yesterday.
The survey is available here. To vote for “your” candidate, all you have to do is enter your phone number (it is necessary, because a voice authorization code will come to him), then your email address, and finally put a cross next to the name of the politician.
Why did iVoting decide on such a step? We asked the CEO of the Marcin Gawlas project:
“Last Thursday, information appeared in the media that booty had attacked a survey regarding the evaluation of the presidential debate on TVP. We decided to prepare our presidential poll, which would be more resistant to boot attacks and manipulation of results. Confirming the voice with an SMS code makes it easy to falsify probe results. “
The survey also has a second goal:
“By the way, we are researching the use of PWA technology for use in the front (interface) of the iVoting application. Thanks to this technology, we simultaneously support Windows, iOS and Android, which significantly facilitates testing on a large scale of users before we release the application in stores.
We conducted the first research on a group of friends and supporters of the project using social media and it turned out that PWA is very well rated. Users praise the speed and readability of the interface. The challenge will be for us to combine PWA with blockchain technology at the appropriate level of system security, but we already have some ideas related to this technological challenge that I can’t talk about at the moment. “
The general test is already behind iVoting
It is worth recalling that iVoting also boasted on its own Facebook fanpagethat his voting tool was used during the General Meeting of Shareholders of Agencja Rozwoju Regionalnego S.A. in Bielsko-Biała.
The latter was attended by shareholder representatives: Bielsko-Biała Commune, Ministry of State Assets, Bielski Poviat, Silesian Voivodship Office. The meeting was in turn conducted by the Vice Mayor of Bielsko-Biała Piotr Kucia. The meeting was also attended by the company’s management board, a representative of the supervisory board and a notary public. The General Meeting was held in a hybrid mode – shareholding voted both in the meeting room and remotely using the iVoting Business application.
