Why blockchain technology?
With blockchain technology, we can ensure and certify that a document or dataset existed at a particular point in time. Democracy anchored generates a unique cryptographic hash, or “fingerprint” for each result submitted by a witness and records it on the blockchain. At any point in the future, the authenticity of the recorded results can be proven.
Every hour, all results are bundled and again recorded on the blockchain. You can view the data here, verify the blockchain anchoring, and view the blockchain receipt.
