iVoting is a Polish project from the blockchain market that we have already written about several times. In short: one of the most important startup tools is for voting with a blockchain. Now they have been tested in real conditions.
iVoting ready for action!
iVoting 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.
– Everything went smoothly. We invite all limited companies and joint-stock companies whose shareholding and shareholders would like to conduct an electronic General Meeting in a convenient, remote way via the Internet for the first pilot votes. – reports the startup.
‼ ️ Today the first electronic General Meeting of Shareholders of the Regional Development Agency took place …
A few years of hard work
iVoting has been developed for almost four years. The roots of the project go back to the activities of the Polish Blockchain Technology Accelerator. At the beginning of this year, the startup received a grant from the National Center for Research and Development, which should help it spread its wings. He is associated with the project, including prof. Krzysztof Piech, who headed the Accelerator.
“There are people in our team who believe that iVoting will handle up to 30 million voters, but voting in general elections is not a priority for our project. Of course, we would like Poland to become the first country in the world to introduce in the general election the maximum safe system for voting via the Internet, using smartphones and computers, but this is a rather distant future and a lot of problems on the road map. However, this does not exclude the statement that in the EU or in the world there are countries where the number of voters does not exceed 2 million entitled to vote in general elections, and our system is assumed to handle such a number without any problem. You don’t have to pay attention to the benefits of i-voting, just check with Google. “
