Democratic candidate Andrew Yang said that he would implement blockchain voting using mobile phones if he wins the US election.

The reason why he wants to use this method is that he thinks that voting is hard and time-consuming, which is the reason why the turnout rate is barely over 50%, even for presidential elections.

According to him, this rewards extreme points of view, instead of the popular will.

It’s ridiculous that in 2020 we are still standing in line for hours to vote in antiquated voting booths. It is 100% technically possible to have fraud-proof voting on our mobile phones today using the blockchain. This would revolutionize true democracy and increase participation to include all Americans – those without smartphones could use the legacy system and lines would be very short.

The main goals of this, according to him, is to make voting easier and more secure, reduce inconsistent processes between states, and to restore confidence and engagement in the democratic process.

The candidate is also trying to give every American universal basic income ($1000 a month) if he becomes the US President.

He is also endorsed by Elon Musk, the CEO and Founder of SpaceX, and Tesla, Inc.
