This blockchain-enabled digital voting system was recently used to verify votes in the Sierra Leone election. Based in Switzerland, Agora is described as "a blockchain-based digital voting solution for governments and institutions."

Their cryptographers and security specialists use blockchain technology to improve the procedure of voting. This is a modern solution for current voting systems, which can be easily manipulated. Agora allows for remote and instant voting that is tamper-proof. This ensures the entire voting process is transparent and verifiable, from registration to final counting. The digital voting system was used during Sierra Leone's presidential elections on March 7, 2018 to record votes in the West Districts.

Blockchain software has been used in a number of other industries, including board games, newsfeed systems and streamlined homeless population apps.
