TrueVote: Open-Source Voting Platform Using OpenTimestamps & Nostr
  • "We're excited to share what we've been working on - the TrueVote app in action," announced the project's CEO Brett Morrison.
"TrueVote is not just an app; it's a commitment to transparency. Built on Bitcoin, Opentimestamps, and Nostr, our open-source platform ensures tamper-proof ballot data. No smoke and mirrors, just verifiable election integrity of every ballot, every vote."
  • "We believe in openness, which is why our tech stack is entirely open-source. Transparency isn't just a feature; it's a virtue. We're empowering voters with unprecedented visibility into the voting process."
"Ballot data is validated using Opentimestamps hashing on Bitcoin. No "token" needed. No "new crypto coin" needed. Bitcoin and Bitcoin only."
  • "And now, TrueVote uses Nostr, an innovative decentralized and open-source communications protocol, for secure authentication."

Key features
