WE.Vote e-voting service update — version 1.4
We are pleased to introduce a new version of WE.Vote — an online voting service based on the mainnet. First launched for commercial use in November 2020, WE.Vote has now received an update to version 1.4. This post provides details about the changes made in the update.
Voting in WE.Vote requires preliminary voter registration. Each registered user has a dedicated pair of encryption keys (public and private) based on a seed phrase. Every pair of encryption keys is registered in the smart contract to act as an identifier of its owner. The voting service accepts a vote with this identifier, and then the vote is signed using the encryption keys, in order to guarantee authenticity and ballot secrecy. You can read more about encryption keys and seed phrases in the WE.Vote service documentation.
