Brazil turns to Ethereum

When we look at the adoption rate of crypto-currencies, not to mention the number of governments who seek solutions to issue digital currencies and national supporters seem to be of the visionary technicians. While these technologies are attracting more and more investor enthusiasm, some people still do not understand the functioning of these crypto-currencies.

Thanks to the initiative of a programmer and a political adviser, Brazil could no longer ignore this trend. As reported by Quartz, they want to circulate petitions in order to encourage the general public to turn to this solution.

Below are the details of this initiative :

A solution to a specific problem

In Brazil, the petitions popular are a form of initiative election, allowing the public to submit legislation to the brazilian congress. Any petition by collecting the signatures of 1 % of the voting population of Brazil is presented at the Congress. The problem is that the system is outdated and inefficient. Even for petitions that gather enough signatures, the brazilian government, sometimes, does not comply with its constitutional obligation to examine them.

Henrique Araujo Costa, professor of law at the University of Brasilia, said that this situation is related to the fact that there is no solution to collect safe the signatures of the voters. For Ricardo Fernandes Paixao and Everton Fraga, the people behind the initiative, it is here that technology comes in to Ethereum. Instead of spread, sign and verify the petitions manually, the project leaders wish to manage the whole process via Ethereum, store the signatures and the records to them via the Blockchain.

How will it work ?

In order to realize this project, the Congress is developing a mobile application. After registering with the app, citizens can sign or create their own petitions using the technology of Ethereum.

This approach proves to be much more effective. Once a transaction is added to the Blockchain, the signatories have access to their data. The verification of the system will be all the more simple.
