Yes, Robert. The figures presented check out. Whip out a calculator and run it yourself.

He’s still a piece of shit and no amount of reframing even from Musk himself that would ever change that fact

Look at the last 30 posts from libs of tiktok, you'll understand why I am not a fan of that idea.

I don't trust the 2022 class of teachers to be responsible in some places tbh. I'd rather have trained personnel do it.

I don't know if you're joking but I was thinking it was involved in some way.

I would agree to that, even live-stream 24/7 until final tally.

Until they take them in the backroom to count them.

Correct, as they should be - as you can see what the address voted for (but not person). However, it would be very clear to see if manipulation (I.E. 200k mysterious ballots drop at 3 AM), everyone can trace to what wallets (or IDs) it came from.

Wallet addresses (voter ID) would be anonymous until they need to be audited, in order to get a wallet address, you need an ID.

It is possible, and would provide the transparency and security the vast majority of us want in voting. It will just will be ~30 years from now till people seriously consider it. The tech is new, still much to be learned.

There should def be ways for them to access for sure. We tried technocracy lite, not a fan.

What I envision is you get a voter ID (your 0x address) you “vote” with your ID, the vote tallies (distributed ledger) are all public and everyone can see in real time how it goes. The voter ID can be a card that you scan, enter your password (or other verification measure) and then “vote” by screen choices (like we do now). This is 30 years in the making and I find it to be absolutely feasible and transparent.

I can understand but I love blockchain and solidity by proxy because of the emphasis on it being trustless although to your earlier points people can make it what they want and you best believe governments, banks, etc. will leverage that tech to their gain as well. We need massive decentralization all around and blockchain is a good step in that direction in the tech world at least.

Only if the ledger isn’t public. Right now I can see every on-chain transaction of BTC and ETH.

Yeah np I didn’t think you did luddites love this site and don’t understand the tech only meme coins.

Completely agree with govt not being the head of the vote to blockchain effort. It should be like Satoshi’s original vision: decentralized, namely by state I would imagine. It’s hard to “wipe” data from a blockchain and the only way to do so is to set it up in the protocol, in which it truly wouldn’t be what a blockchain should be: an immutable distributed ledger.
