Quadratic Voting & Blockchain’s Combined Potential

In the days following the 2020 election, crypto industry experts like Ethereum Founder, Vitalik Buterin, and Binance’s CEO Changpeng Zhao both commented on the opportunity for blockchain-based voting. Buterin stated that there is a potential to onboard a quarter billion people in just a few years.

“Develop something good now, get it approved (obviously hardest step), and get 300 million plus (fully KYC’d) users in 4 years time.” — Vitalik Buterin said on Twitter.

How Mogul Quadratic Voting Works

At Mogul, we developed a framework called Mogul Quadratic Voting that has the potential to usher in the next era of blockchain-voting to the film industry and beyond. Mogul Quadratic Voting is a secure and fair way to carry out full voting campaigns online.

Benefits of Mogul’s Quadratic Voting System:

  • Prevents Vote Buying
  • Decreases voter Apathy
  • Encourages Community-Based Governance
  • Restricts Wealth Dominance

Mogul initiates a voting round by issuing voting credits to the token holders on the platform. The token holders then use the tokens to vote on what films and governance proposals they want to support.

How can Mogul Quadratic Voting & Blockchain Achieve Fair Voter Representation?

To give smaller token holders an equal voice to larger ones, all votes are counted using a quadratic voting formula. By using this formula, each vote becomes exponentially more expensive to cast and holds less weight. Mogul Quadratic Voting is set up to incentivize token holders to vote on movies and governance proposals in a fair way.

The overall framework promotes community-based governance and decision making. That’s not something that can be said for the election process across the world today!

Quadratic Voting: A Secure and Fair Voting Framework

Mogul Quadratic Voting allows token holders and film fans alike to vote with their tokens… but there’s a caveat. We give a voice to all fans and creators, not just the ones with the most money.
