We are developing an app and an open framework that can be used by third parties as a secure voting layer. During the last 2 years, we have been researching citizen participation, civic engagement, and governance processes and now we are close to releasing a smartphone app. (Techincal info at the bottom)\n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"What is Vocdoni?"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"Our main aim is building a trustless voting system, where anyone can speak their voice and where everything can be audited. We are engineering building blocks for a permissionless, private and censorship-resistant democracy.\n\nWe believe that easy-to-use technology can boost participation in any scenario, lowering the existent barriers: from formal political participation such as Participatory budgets, informal organizations like a group of friends or, also, advocacy movements that require different levels of privacy and anonymization.\n\nWe intend the algorithms, systems, and software that we build to be a useful contribution toward making violence in these cryptonetworks impossible by protecting users' privacy with cryptography. In particular, we aim to provide the necessary tooling for the political will of network participants to translate outwardly into real political capital, without sacrificing privacy.\n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"The open platform"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"During this journey we started building the roots, what we called Vocdoni Open Stack, an open platform to make governance processes, transparent and secure while protecting user privacy and maximizing usability while making voting universally verifiable and scalable to millions of participants.\n\nWe built it on top of decentralized technologies (such as Ethereum, Tendermint, and IPFS) to guarantee the integrity of the voting processes and prevent disruption from attacks, and making use of Zero-Knowledge cryptography to ensure full anonymity to their participants.\n"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Blockchain voting for everyone"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"On top of the shared infrastructure, we are building Vocdoni's participation platform. A mobile-first app focused on making participation tools frictionless while giving them more security, transparency, and verifiability guarantees that nation state elections ever had.\n\nWe want these tools to be accessible to anyone, from your grandma to the state, and not only crypto nerds. We want the users to engage with their organizations and actively participate in everything they care about while having their identity and their data safely protected.\n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Do you want to support Vocdoni?"},{"attributes":{"header":2},"insert":"\n"},{"insert":"Vocdoni is currently running private trials and is looking for organizations to be part of the first pilot tests.
