It all begins in the 9th century with the Arabic mathematician Al Juarismi, from which comes the name of “algorithm”. Analgorithm is an automatic mathematical procedure (alsocalled a “protocol”) that executes a default succession of operations. An algorithm is something very old but at the same time modern, because it can run a computer. All the electronic devices around us execute them.
Blockchain technology is a mathematical algorithm. The objective of the algorithm is to decide, without human intervention, the consensus of a network of users: to establish what is the opinion of the majority. This problem seems easy to solve and we know of a solution since antiquity: the electoral consultations. It is sufficient for eachuser to issue a vote and then the algorithm will count. But automating the process is not so simple. For an electoralconsultation it is necessary to have an important logistics:creation of a census, organization of electoral tables, local counts. We do not want anyone to control the process to avoid possible bug or voter fraud.
