“Trust and security is broken in todays election and voting systems and people need to be assured that the results are accurate.”
SEATTLE (PRWEB) October 15, 2018
Govurn has come out of stealth mode after working for over a year to bring a disruptive technology for democracy to the world. In order to do so, Govurn has given birth to Forum, a decentralized technology Cooperative. Forum Cooperative is dedicated to optimizing democracy using technology. Forum membership is comprised of thought leaders in technology, education, private industry, public administration and will include any global citizen passionate about democracy. The upcoming release of the Forum Platform is the foundational technology toolbox with which communities, governments, or any organization can build governance solutions, whether it be centralized or decentralized. These solutions will leverage best practices for on and off chain governance technologies.
“Being a member of Forum brings an opportunity to have your voice be heard and have a true and lasting impact on the democratic process making all of us more effective citizens.” Mark Cooley, President of Forum Cooperative.
The value of Forum Cooperative’s Platform is ideal for elections, voting, polling, and surveys for all governments and organizations. Forum will even support the most sophisticated and complex corporate and blockchain governance requirements.
Good governance models are at the heart of any successful business operation. These models are essential for any organization to achieve its objectives, drive improvement and maintain legal and ethical standing in the eyes of it’s community, shareholders, and regulators.
Based on a common vision Govurn, Forum, and RChain Cooperative’s investment arm, Reflective Venture Partners, developed a partnership to bring better democracy into elections, governance, and other decision events using improved blockchain based methods.
RChain’s mission is to provide tools for the future of human coordination. This aligns perfectly with the governance coordination function that Forum is layering on top of RChain’s coordination backbone.
“Trust and security is broken in todays election and voting systems and people need to be assured that the results are accurate.” Mark urges. Something needs to be done to fix broken systems. Companies are attempting to do this with mobile blockchain voting apps, but Forum Cooperative believes that more needs to be done to bridge today’s systems to a set of vastly improved governance tools.
This vision for Forum Cooperative enables public and private organizations to administer elections by bridging the current world of paper and electronic voting and the future of democracy by leveraging the benefits of blockchain, creating new hybrid voting options (paper and electronic). This revolutionary approach adds a layer of trust and security to an elections current voting process while providing a path forward to the future of digital elections.
