Thailand Uses Blockchain-Supported Electronic Voting System in Primaries

bitcoinmagazine | 11-13-2018

Thailand's Democrat Party has become the first political party to use blockchain technology to elect its leaders in a primary election, which was held from November 1–9, 2018. In a live e-voting system, more than 120,000 party faithful cast their votes in a transparent way that saw former Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva winning his party nomination with 67,505 votes.Party members were able to vote using two methods. The first method was through voting stations that utilized a Raspberry Pi-based system. Voters were also able to vote via a blockchain-based mobile app that asked voters to submit their photo ID.The identification documents used to verify party members and the voting tallies were both encrypted and stored on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a decentralized and distributed file system for storing large volumes of data. IPFS uses a peer-to-peer protocol where nodes store a collection of hashed files on a network. For this election, the IPFS hashes were stored on the Zcoin blockchain, which acted as an "immutable database and provided auditability to the Thai Election Commission and the Democrat Party candidates."“I am very proud that Zcoin played a role in making Thailand’s first large-scale e-vote, a reality, which saw greater voter participation and transparency,” Poramin Insom, founder & lead developer of Zcoin, noted in a public statement.To keep the voting data and documen...

Ripple’s legal team in their ongoing securities suit is attempting a new tack: to have the claim proceed at the federal level.In a move that legal commentator Jake Chervinsky described as “seriously crafty,” Ripple has filed a formal notice-of-removal motion to have their most recent securities suit, Zakinov et al v. Ripple, tried in a federal court rather than at the state level.  In the notice of removal, the defendants, which include Ripple and its CEO Brad Garlinghouse, among others, request that the court “remove the … civil action, and all claims and causes of action therein, from the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Mateo, to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.”The class action is a consolidation of three separate suits filed by Vladi Zakinov, David Oconer and Avner Greenwald “on behalf of all California citizens who purchased or otherwise acquired XRP from January 1, 2013 to the present.” It claims that since Ripple has failed to register with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), XRP has been sold as an unregistered security, and the combined class action is seeking nearly $17 million in damages.Swamped with legal troubles, Ripple has sustained several legal challenges to their sale of XRP tokens, with many alleging that these token sales constitute securities fraud.

While accessing Bitmain’s digital wallet without authority, John Doe placed an order to sell MANA out of Bitmain’s digital wallet at a deflated price. At the same time, John Doe placed a purchase order for MANA at that deflated price from John Doe’s Binance wallet.” They continue to say, “Binance’s automated system matched the deflated MANA sell order with the deflated MANA purchase orde...
