Eclypses has partnered with Voatz, a leading mobile voting platform provider to pilot its “Quantum Resistant” security solution in upcoming elections. Voatz made history by being the 1st mobile voting application backed by a blockchain-based infrastructure to be used successfully in a US presidential election this year, allowing voters to securely cast their ballots on their personal smartphones.
Eclypses MicroToken Exchange® (MTE) is being integrated into certain aspects of the Voatz mobile voting infrastructure to future-proof the security of the network communication as well as further improve the detection of rooted/jailbroken devices in order to make it exponentially harder for malicious actors to tamper with voter devices.

For the first time ever, mobile voting backed by a blockchain-based infrastructure was available in a U.S. presidential election.
The 2020 presidential election was a milestone for many reasons, one of the most significant of which was the high voter turnout – a reflection of the appetite and re-commitment of American citizens to the democratic process. Regardless of political affiliation and belief, Americans voted in record numbers. This was due in large part to efforts across the country to improve and provide access to voters otherwise disenfranchised or unable to participate.
Voatz also achieved key milestones in 2020. From supporting the first mobile ballots cast in a U.S. presidential election to facilitating the first fully remote conventions for both major political parties in the U.S., and enabling the largest mobile voting exercise in the world, we continued to build on our impressive history of firsts.
