Considering that so many of daily life's activities are carried out online, Polys is a new platform that's looking to expand another part of society into the digital realm: voting. The platform uses blockchain technology to ensure that online voting is conducted securely and reliably, giving both voters and the systems on which their votes depend a new level of convenience and insurance.

Online voting has previously been reserved for things of relatively low importance; it's relatively trivial, in the grand scheme of things, if someone hacks into and changes the results for People magazine's "Who wore it better?" online poll. However, it's fundamentally important for voting systems to be secure and consistent in the case of democratic elections. Polys uses the same technology currently being applied in things like cryptocurrency to provide virtually surefire online election systems.
