Leading Uruguay’s Digital Party has emphasized on digitizing and inculcating tech in its actions. The political party has now made a crucial announcement in this regard and revealed the use of blockchain in carrying out internal democratic practices.
To make it possible, the political party has inked partnership with Æternity to create a trustless and decentralized set up for people of Uruguay to cast their vote and take part in key political decisions in a clear and optimized system.
As of now, the main priority of the Æternity development team will be to work in close coordination with the political party to create UDP’s internal governance system with the help of its own community decision making protocols.
