Electronic voting systems, $2.7 billion lawsuit against Fox News, blockchain - this podcast has it all. Post-elections have brought accusations of disinformation - some warranted, some not.
Smartmatic builds and implements electronic voting systems which are present in multiple countries, and growing. It’s more transparent, efficient, and accessible than the pen-to-paper system (let alone being almost unhackable).
However, it was at the forefront of the disinformation campaign after the Biden vs Trump election when Fox News made Smartmatic the villain. Now they’re suing the corporation for $2.7 billion.
Antonio Mugica, founder and CEO of Smartmatic, joins Niko Woischnik on this weeks podcast to talk politics, voting, and hacking.
They discuss the current lawsuit with Fox News, the future of blockchain in electronic voting systems and the challenges it invites, and how he created the largest online voting system in the world.
Did you know in 17 years their systems have counted more than 5 billion votes, and they haven’t had one breach? How to not get hacked? Think like a hacker.
