TrueVote: Open-Source Voting Platform Using OpenTimestamps & Nostr

“We’re excited to share what we’ve been working on – the TrueVote app in action,” announced the project’s CEO Brett Morrison.”TrueVote is not just an app; it’s a commitment to transparency. Built on Bitcoin, Opentimestamps, and Nostr, our open-source platform ensures tamper-proof ballot data. No smoke and mirrors, just verifiable election integrity of every ballot, every vote.” “We believe in openness, which is why our tech stack is entirely open-source. Transparency isn’t just a feature; it’s a virtue. We’re empowering voters with unprecedented visibility into the voting process.””Ballot data is validated using Opentimestamps hashing on Bitcoin. No “token” needed. No “new crypto coin” needed. Bitcoin and Bitcoin only.””And now, TrueVote uses Nostr, an innovative decentralized and open-source communications protocol, for secure authentication.”
