An E-voting Protocol Based on Blockchain

Yi Liu and Qi Wang

Abstract: Because of the properties such as transparency, decentralization, irreversibility, nonrepudiation, etc., blockchain is not only a fundamental technology of great interest in its own right, but also has large potential when integrated into many other areas. In this paper, based on the blockchain technology, we propose a decentralized e-voting protocol, without the existence of a trusted third party. Furthermore, we provide several possible extensions and improvements that meet the requirements in some specific voting scenarios.
