Conference paper


Blockchain is one of the most innovative things in recent times in computing. It is a verifiable and immutable ledger of records. The rise of cryptocurrencies has brought them more focus. It is being made clear that the applications of blockchain are not only restricted to cryptocurrencies but also can extend up to the way we use our smartphones, the structure of security systems, banking systems, health monitoring systems, even e-governance, etc. In this paper, an attempt is made to show the importance of blockchain in e-governance, through e-voting. The impact of blockchain along with its synergy with e-voting has been discussed in this paper, which can be used for further investigations.
