@brettgilio Each voter must first register the key pair, to tie it to the voter's identity, and make sure no-one has more than one unit of voice. The registration is either performed by a central authority, and it all makes no sense. Or?鈥

@brettgilio Probably never. In the above scheme it would be possible to pay people to vote a certain way and have cryptographic proof how they voted.

This is the main shortcoming with blockchain voting schemes as well.

Online voting is broken

Maybe Quantum Crypto will lead to a breakthrough, idk
