XIN Feature Voting Infinity Foundation May, 2017, v1 Content: 1. Voting Overview 2. Voting Usage Examples 1. Voting Overview Blockchain technology lends itself well to use in voting systems. By providing a secure way for each person to register their vote on a public record whilst still maintaining the option for users to remain anonymous, and with little possibility for anybody to tamper with those votes, the blockchain is able to offer significant improvements over current systems in terms of security and transparency. The secure, encrypted, consensus-based nature of the XIN network allows the implementation of a voting system that guarantees anonymity and security, without relying on a central authority to tally votes.The XIN Voting System enables any account to create a poll with one question and up to 10 answers. Accounts are eligible to vote in the poll based on a minimum required balance of XIN, an asset or a currency. Voting consists of selecting an integer range value to associate with one or more answers as specified during poll creation. An answer is given weight based on one of four voting models and then its weight is multiplied by the associated range value to compute a corresponding result. The four voting models specify weight as: one per voting account, or equal to the balance per voting account of XIN, an asset or a currency. An aggregate weight for each answer is computed as the sum of all individual vote weights; likewise an aggregate result is computed. Individual votes are saved until at least 1441 blocks after the poll completes, typically more than a day. After this time, votes are deleted and only aggregate weights and results remain available. 2.
