Australian political movement MiVote designed the model for democracy in the future, and Horizon State is building the technology to make that model possible.
MiVote has been six years in development, with a platform that is designed to empower, inform and represents communities by providing factual information packs to enable informed voting on individual issues.
And, Horizon State was spun-out of the not-for-profit MiVote when it was realised that the technical platform it had built to support MiVote had much farther reaching applications.
One application is the use of distributed ledger technology such as blockchain to help accomplish the United Nations SDGs.
Under the collaboration, the voting and decision-making platform that Horizon State has developed is leveraging blockchain technology to enable secure, immediate and efficient voting processes at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.
“The partnership between MiVote and the United Nations organisation is a perfect demonstration of how informed and inclusive decision-making can be applied at scale using the security of Horizon State’s blockchain enabled platform to drive global change.” said Adam Jacoby, Founder and Chief Steward of MiVote.
“When you give people true and easy to understand information, and the ability to participate in decision-making, they become empowered to reach consensus together.”
“Through our partnership Horizon State will be addressing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Our platform supports peace, accountability, justice, and strong institutions — the pillars of SDG 16” says Horizon State co-founder, Jamie Skella.
