Too Long; Didn't Read

The US electoral system (and its democracy) need a 'fixing' in the US elections, writes Frida Ghitis. She asks whether the blockchain could have at least brought transparency and certainty into these elections.

The benefits of technology should be carefully weighted against the risks of fraud, she says.
