Several US states approached the Cardano Foundation with the intention of developing a voting system that is based on blockchain. The information was disclosed in a recent interview by Frederik Gregaard, CEO of the Cardano Foundation, with DailyCoin.

On the occasion, Gregaard highlighted the increased interest of government bodies in taking advantage of blockchain to improve electoral processes. Regarding the states’ objective, the idea specifically focuses on creating a blockchain solution that is “lightweight” to be used on two fronts: increasing transparency, as well as accountability in voting systems.

“We were approached by a few states in the US saying, ‘hey, can you help us make a lightweight blockchain solution to make the way we’re voting more transparent and accountable?’. I still have to analyze whether we can make this happen in the timeframe they are considering,” Gregaard revealed.

Despite all the enthusiasm for the search for blockchain technology, Gregaard also expressed concern about the challenges involved, especially in relation to the deadline requested for implementing the solution requested by the states.

At the time of publication, the price of Cardano was quoted at US$0.584 with an increase of 1.3% in the last 24 hours. In the last seven days, the price of ADA has fallen by 9.8%.

Charles Hoskinson comments on community assumptions about blockchain
