Emercoin introduced blockchain platform to combat misinformation and data falsification



The Design 4 Democracy coalition, the Blockchain Trust Accelerator, the National Democratic Institute and the blockcoin startup Emercoin have developed and tested a platform to protect the integrity of important information related to electoral processes. This is stated on the Emercoin website.

The platform for was tested during a recent referendum in Macedonia on the issue of approving a treaty with Greece, which involves changing the name of the country. Its task was to notarize public reports on the referendum process in order to provide verified official documents and protect the authenticity and integrity of statements in the light of the spread of misinformation.

“Manipulating facts is one of the most common problems of modern society. Together with our partners, we developed a solution on the Emercoin blockchain, designed to protect the integrity of documents used in the course of events like a referendum in Macedonia. The system has all the advantages of decentralized technologies: high security, transparency and trust, ”said Konstantin Bigus, Emercoin managing partner.

The developed solution is universal and can be used in the course of other events requiring the publication of important data, the falsification of which can lead to distrust of state organizations. Its main components will be publicly available.

Design 4 Democracy Coalition is an organization for the defense of democracy and the rights of people around the world. The organization uses innovative technologies to ensure the integrity of information and prevent the spread of false and misleading facts. As stated by the representatives of the organization, they are working to understand the problems and threats at the intersection of democracy and technology.

“The problem of misinformation will get worse before a change for the better. It is imperative that the technology industry and the democratic community work together and explore a wide range of potential solutions that will solve the disinformation problem, ”says Chris Doten, chief innovation specialist at NDI.

Recall that in September, the Emernotar service was introduced , which, using blockchain technology, preserves the integrity of digital documents and media files, protects copyrights and safely identifies users.
