Data on chain are protected with an unlimited number of distributed copies. This means that there is no single point of failure and data is tamper-proof. Information confirmed on chain are forever unable to be edited or removed.

Creating a transparent, tamper-resistant election poll
TODO.a (Taiwan Open Democracy Observatory) is a non-profit organization that empowers citizens to monitor politicians’ actions and political track records. Integral to TODO.a’s mission is to provide voters accurate and trusted data and polling analysis. However, as Taiwan’s political climate is plagued with fake news and biased polls, TODO.a sought for a solution that would offer credibility and data incorruptibility.
Together with ThunderCore, TODO.a has created a transparent, tamper-resistant polling application. Furthermore, poll answers from members of the Legislature as well as presidential candidates are also submitted to chain–thereby guaranteed and forever saved.
