Our partner’s long-term goal was to boost creativity to solve the most complex IT problems through a decentralized voting system called Alpha Blockchain. The application facilitates transparent information flow through an open-source and free to use the online voting system.
The turnout has not even reached 50% over the last 15 years. The most common response of those who did not vote was a lack of time to get to the polling station. People are often busy working, traveling, changing residences, living abroad, or simply forgetting about the election. We also cannot forget about the disabled for whom a visit to the polling station is an insurmountable barrier.
Alpha Blockchain is the first open-source voting application available to those interested in improving the blockchain technologies in Poland.
The app promotes cyberdemocracy through a fair and transparent online voting system that facilitates clear information flow throughout NGO’s, private, and public organizations. We developed the GUI for android and set up a background server that can support multiple platforms that are scheduled to be developed in the future.
We believe we created a unique, easy to use, and reliable application for online voting. The application ensures a transparent election process where results are easy to monitor.
To use the app, users need to type in a valid phone number and a password. After logging in, the users gain access to the list of current polls with a piece of short information about each such as the type of voting, its duration, available candidates, or potential solutions.
From the management perspective, one can easily create a poll from several categories, define the run time, and access the results easily.
Project’s Tech stack:
The application was dedicated to mobile devices.
We had to take into account the aspect that the application has to be compatible with many platforms such as Android, Windows, Linux, iOS. QT provided us with this solution.
The QT part covering the graphic aspect, used for elements such as window scaling and shadow operations in Graphic User Interface to make it more pleasant to the eye.
Docker helped us to speed up the work and provided a high level of reliability. This tool was very handy to resolve the problem of transparency in the voting process. The server, which we set up using Docker, is scalable and expandable.
Was used to write a backend server for the application.
Provided us with access to a multitude of online properly documented and easy to use resources for documentation purposes.
Served as a place to store datasets. Thanks to this tech, we neither from our servers.
Our project requires innovative technology and excellent programming skills. We have been working with xBerry for over six months, and I believe that the quality of work that xBerry has delivered is outstanding. It is the cherry on the top. Over the next few months, we are planning to launch the final phase of this project. I am confident about the outcome.
