  journal={Int. J. Electron. Gov. Res.},
Electronic voting or e-voting has been used in varying forms since 1970s with fundamental benefits over paper-based systems such as increased efficiency and reduced errors. [] Key Method The article presents details of the proposed e-voting scheme along with its implementation using Multichain platform. The article also presents an in-depth evaluation of the scheme which successfully demonstrates its effectiveness to achieve an end-to-end verifiable e-voting scheme.

This work model mining as a Poisson process with time-dependent intensity and uses this model to derive predictions about block times for various hash-rate scenarios, and analyses Bitcoin’s method to update the “network difficulty” as a mechanism to keep block times stable.

DRE-ip: A Verifiable E-Voting Scheme Without Tallying Authorities

Adopting a different design strategy, DRE-ip is able to encrypt ballots in real time in such a way that the election tally can be publicly verified without decrypting the cast ballots, and achieves end-to-end verifiability without tallying authorities.

Bingo Voting: Secure and Coercion-Free Voting Using a Trusted Random Number Generator

A new verifiable and coercion-free voting scheme Bingo Voting is presented, which is based on a trusted random number generator, which shows the practicality of the scheme: all costly computations can be moved to a non time critical pre-voting phase.

Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System

This work proposes a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer network, where the network timestamps transactions by hashing them into an ongoing chain of hash-based proof-of-work, forming a record that cannot be changed without redoing the proof- of-work.
