Diginex partners with Agora to provide blockchain-based voting in Asia

Diginex, a blockchain solutions provider, today announced a partnership agreement with blockchain-based voting solution Agora to implement and execute projects in Asia.

Agora uses the immutable ledger of blockchain to record and store voting records, ensuring that the process is transparent and free from potential manipulation or fraud. The system allows for flexibility in deployment, reducing costs and complexity by providing a digital platform free from tampering or co-opting by third parties. Diginex will provide access and implementation support for the Agora platform to Diginex’s network across Asia.

Mr. Mark Blick, Head of Government Projects at Diginex, said: “We are delighted to partner with Agora, a world leader in this space, with successful projects already completed. We are constantly speaking to governments, NGO’s and corporations about practical applications of blockchain technology that benefit their existing systems and processes.”

“This technology perfectly aligns with our philosophy that blockchain can not only foster transparency in elections but also encourage the enfranchisement of voters who traditionally may have been excluded from the electoral process. We see great potential in both the developing and developed world for decentralized, transparent technologies and Agora is one of the first platforms that recognizes that potential.”

Agora’s CEO, Mr. Leonardo Gammar, added: “We are looking forward to working with Diginex to provide both governments and organizations with an innovative voting ecosystem. Partnering with Diginex opens up new opportunities for Agora in Asia, enabling us to expand our network of contacts and develop strategic synergies to improve our technology’s capacity to fit into existing frameworks. Our companies share the same concern for making sure that adopting blockchain-based solutions is successful and effortless in every organization. We are glad to lead the way together towards widespread recognition of blockchain’s potential to secure and enhance electoral processes.”
