Twitter: @YesDayScotland has been asked to participate in a Q and A interview for Business for Scotland, our nation’s largest proIndy campaigning business network and think tank. The organisation is passionate about unlocking Scotland’s potential, by promoting policies that will create sustainable business and economic growth.

Our Q and A will be seen by many people, who will be encountering blockchain for the very first time. Whilst blockchain has a mind-blowing scale of emerging potentials, our niche subject is in specific relation to electronic democracy.


For ease of reference, we therefore list 80 advantages for Scotland, specifically aligned from the perspective of #Blockchain #ElectronicDemocracy. We are of course dealing with totally unprecedented innovation. Can readers help us by adding more advantages? Simply comment on this article, and we can pull ideas together and add to the list. Maybe by helping each other, we can perhaps create 100 ADVANTAGES FOR SCOTLAND.

All of these aspects have been via our twitter:

  1. Firstly, 2014 #IndyRef cost taxpayers £15.85M.
    If running #Blockchain ‘to measure will’, costs are ‘negligible’
  2. Pro rata as 8.3% of UK, Scottish taxpayer election costs are £11.86M. Using #Blockchain, these costs become ‘negligible’ TheCost
  3. 1 and 2 have just saved fellow Scottish taxpayers a sum circa £27,000,000
    Shall we continue?
  4. @YesDayScotland won’t be factoring a 20% ‘consultant fee’ on the £27,000,000 we’ve just saved Scottish taxpayers. Because, we are voluntary! 🙂 LOL
  5. In many ways, #Blockchain will negate the amounts that political parties invest in buying their share of Scotland results Screen Shot 2017-09-19 at 09.32.21
  6. In #Scotland – election results aren’t won on merit. The results are purchased. #Blockchain will change that.
    RESULTS ARE DRIVEN BY MERIT Screen Shot 2017-09-19 at 09.32.39
  7. #Blockchain will root out political cronyism in #Scotland
    Aye, it’s #GoodnightVienna for #Cronyism Screen Shot 2017-09-19 at 09.43.17
  8. #Blockchain #ElectronicDemocracy will root out the sources of #FakeNews –
    #Scotland will therefore become a much more truthful society Truth
  9. As #Scotland will become a more truthful society, we say adios to spivs and speculators
  10. As #Blockchain will root out sources of #FakeNews – Unionist media is therefore held properly to account. For all they say and do
  11. #Blockchain will eg, properly define the ins and out of #GERS
    That’s sure to be of some relief to #Scotland twitterati
  12. #Scotland public infrastructure built on #Blockchain can be inclusive of forward budget planning. With accountants actually held to account!
  13. The days of pantomime Chancellors getting away with ‘unexpected deficits’ are over. #Blockchain holds these people to account in #Scotland
  14. If #Blockchain is used to measure desire for Independence?
    A No result doesn’t end Indy forever

We’re now in development on a pioneering project to bring Scotland’s first ever demo of a blockchain voting system. This is being worked through with Switzerland’s cutting edge democracy innovation. The project was offered to Scotland via our twitter feed. We never cease to be amazed at the generosity and desire to offer help, to resolve Scotland’s mass conflict, and to voluntarily input in wider contexts.

These are considerations which very clearly demonstrate the capability of modern technology being used for peacefully resolving mass conflict, which is the main centralised theme of our twitter feed.
