Problem Definition

There are mainly two significant problems that led to the development of PunkPoll

  • Difficulty in Democratic Participation: Existing voting and polling systems are often complicated and difficult to access. This has resulted in many people being marginalized in the democratic decision-making process. Situations often occur where transparency is lacking, the system is too complex for easy participation, and as a result, only a few people participate in the decision-making process, creating an imbalance.
  • Transparency and Reliability of Information: Traditional systems also often face issues with transparency and reliability of information. It's hard to understand how the voting or polling results were tabulated, how the results came about, and it's hard to trust whether the results are accurate. This undermines the transparency and reliability, the core of the democratic decision-making process, and this, in turn, reduces people's willingness to participate.
  • Need for Privacy Protection: Voting or polling is an important means of expressing personal opinion. However, if voters' information is not fully protected, voters may find it difficult to freely express their opinions. Therefore, ensuring voter privacy is the most critical issue.
  • Difficulty in Providing Adequate Incentives: There was also a problem in providing appropriate incentives needed to encourage users to participate in voting, polling, etc. This sometimes resulted in insufficient motivation for platform users to participate.

PunkPoll has developed a blockchain-based democracy platform to solve these problems. This platform allows more people to easily participate in democratic decision-making through voting and polling, and enhances the transparency and reliability of information by utilizing blockchain and zero-knowledge proof technologies. Also, by providing economic incentives through PUNK Token, it encourages more people to utilize the platform. By doing so, PunkPoll aims to expand democratic participation and enhance the transparency and reliability of information.
