Nimit Sawhney is the CEO of Voatz, one of the leading blockchain-based voting platforms in the United States -- with more than 80,000 votes cast on the Voatz platform across more than 50 elections since 2016. In this episode, Nimit and Derek talk about the current problems that exist with electoral voting – including friction and inefficiency, lack of voter participation, human error – and why the time might be arriving for state and federal elections powered by mobile cameras, biometrics, and blockchain technology. We also discuss how COVID-19 has accelerated the demand to fix a number of fragile systems across the U.S. – including voting, supply chains, and financial infrastructure like the trading of securities.
