    IOTA as the secure backbone of electronic Voting

    IOTA is being explored by researchers over at the University of Lancaster after receiving a EPSRC research grant. This effort also got Cybernetica, the company that introduced legally enforceable eVoting to the world in 2005 on board.


    We have been conducting numerous different stresstests lately to
    demonstrate and confirm the scalability capability of IOTA. So far we
    have achieved a higher throughput than any other public distributed
    ledger in history. A full report, as well as a much larger stresstest in
    collaboration with 2 large corporates will take place soon to truly
    highlight just how well IOTA scales.
