Started in 2017 by founding members that include Bitcoin Suisse, Luxoft, Monetas, and Thomson Reuters, the association currently includes over 430 start-ups, service providers and other organizations.
An upcoming blockchain-based 'e-vote' in the city of Zug is an example of the Crypto Valley Association's progressive approach to promoting a global center where emerging cryptographic, blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies and businesses can thrive in a safe, supportive, and vibrant environment. The non-binding e-vote is part of a research project piloting an e-voting system where residents enrolled in an existing blockchain-based digital identification system can vote between June 25 and July 1, 2018, in an online poll using an Ethereum-based app. The project adds to the efforts of many governments and researchers looking into voting systems as a potential use case for Blockchain technology, including assessing the privacy, security, immutability, testability and traceability of Blockchain technology in this particular application.
