Politics and blockchain might not seem like an obvious mix, but it has been adopted in both Thailand and Japan. Now, it seems Russia is the newest place to get in on the action. United Russia, the ruling party of the country, has announced that it has launched a blockchain-based e-voting platform. The initiative was unveiled as part of a new platform for their primaries voting. Their head of IT, Vyacheslav Sateyev, has said that the process of counting votes will now be done through blockchain as a means of ensuring increased efficiency and eliminating middlemen.
