In 2018, trust in Blockchain technology to support online voting will continue to grow. The technology will increasingly demonstrate efficiency, security, accuracy and low cost. Moreover, as dissatisfaction with political institutions accelerates globally, Direct Democracy will gain momentum. As evidenced by populist movements spreading across the globe, citizens of the world are disgusted with ingrained political systems, in which elected officials carry out the will of special interests, enriching themselves with bribes and payoffs (deceptively labeled as campaign contributions), rather than serving the public’s interest. Again, in reaffirming our forecast, the only obstacle to online voting is the people’s will to make it happen.
