BFA and Blockchain
As TokenTops reported last month, CEO and Founder of the Brazil-based blockchain company Edilson Osorio revealed at the Ethereum Classic Summit 2018 in Seoul that the BFA would be running their next board election on blockchain technology, and OriginalMy would be helping them providing the necessary infrastructure to carry out the shareholder voting on the Ethereum Classic network.
“Next month, the Brazilian Fintechs Association will vote, for the first time for the board election, using our platform, for signing the votes. It’s a huge step for us,” Osorio said, adding that the conglomerate consist of over 400 companies.
Ingrid Barth – Head of Business Development at Brazilian crypto exchange Foxbit and leader of crypto-economics and blockchain at the BFA, was the mastermind behind the proposal of carrying out next voting on the distributed ledger technology.
“Our companies work with disruptive technologies, so it makes sense for us to a pioneer in implementing the first Brazilian election on the Blockchain which is low cost, transparent and secure and can become a benchmark for other electoral processes too,” she said, adding that this precedent will prove to be important to pave the way for a future where public representatives can be elected by using blockchain platforms.
With the pilot successfully ran through OriginalMy, the next step is to improve the whole process for the real voting, which should take place anytime soon. Should the suffrage has the same positive result, this could expand not only to Brazilian public sector, but to any type of election worldwide.
