WyoHackathon 2020 Blockchain Voting Challenge Help us upgrade our democracy to America 2.0! This year's November election is set to be the most complex landscape voters have ever experienced. For the first time, most voters will be opting to use absentee mail-in ballots, something they have likely never done before. In 2020, somehow our democracy is still reliant on paper to determine who will lead our country, despite five states already having had successful pilot projects in blockchain voting for absentee ballots. We want to see something different for 2021, 2022 and into our digital future. The Brock Pierce Foundation has a prize of 1 bitcoin for the WyoHackathon team that can build the best solution for a blockchain voting app that incorporates voter identification and ballot tabulation. Special consideration will be made for tailored solutions that can be used in Wyoming elections, specifically with the view to make Wyoming the next state to have a blockchain voting pilot that shows the rest of the country what innovation can do to support democracy.
