ORCA partners with Agora to facilitate community voting on the platform
Some great news just came and we are eager to share them with the community. ORCA business development department continues to gallop and has secured a new connection on the block — Agora protocol.
Agora is a Swiss voting protocol building a decentralized digital voting ecosystem based on blockchain technology. It ensures security, end-to-end verifiability and support for multiple devices. By creating an immutable and publicly viewable digital record of elections, Agora’s technology allows both private and public organizations to eradicate fraud and corruption, reduce cost and engage voters in a modern, convenient and accessible way.
Agora is also building an election supply chain tracking app and will provide decentralized application hosting on top of its custom, fair and token-free consensus mechanism.
“It’s a perfect mechanism for our community to be heard. Anything ranging from what apps to include to what services to implement — members of the ORCA platform will have the ability to make suggestions and guide platform development via community voting. All done using the AGORA decentralized solution.”- commented N. Avidan, CEO of ORCA Alliance
Agora on ORCA platform
Agora’s functionality will be best used in ORCA’s gamified community ecosystem — Quest which is constructed specifically with the intention to involve members of ORCA the platform.
Community engagement remains one of the fundamental driving forces behind blockchain and cryptocurrency projects. Therefore, Quest ecosystem is encompassed around giving the incentive for active participators to continue showing initiative and getting immersed in internal group dynamics.
In turn, these incentives help to build brand ambassadors who indirectly invite new people to come and try out the platform’s features. External parties such as app developers can also utilize the community voting infrastructure to get a better grasp on industry’s needs. Later on, they will be able to use this information to build better solutions and offer them to the existing member base.
When asked about the newly formed partnership L. Gammar, the CEO of Agora responded:
“When most people think about voting they have government elections in mind when actually the voting industry represents 0.2% of the world’s GDP. Spread out between the private and the public sectors, it covers a great diversity of practical applications, ranging from referendums, shareholders meetings, entertainment/arts/sports competitions, to reviews, surveys or community votes. Agora’s goal is not only to provide tamper-proof and trustworthy voting systems for high stake elections, but also to present the private sector with an affordable, modern and engaging method of addressing voters that is currently lacking.
Partnering with ORCA Alliance is an incredible opportunity to bridge the gap between the very niche industry of blockchain and the general audience. Our companies share the conviction that we need blockchain products that seemingly blend into people’s habits, answering the challenges of everyday life in an innovative and yet accessible way. We are looking forward to collaborating with ORCA to run secure, convenient and fun community votes!”
Agora’s technology solution is transparent, tamper-proof, private and easily accessible.It is the first blockchain-based system to be used in real-world government elections. Agora demonstrated the technology’s potential to the National Election Commission during Sierra Leone presidential elections earlier this year.
