A new form of cryptocurrency is hoping to give people a better way to vote, and it doesn’t require any knowledge of blockchain — the digital ledger technology supporting bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies — to use.

The Sovereign app brings together blockchain and liquid democracy, a form of democracy that gives people more control over their votes by allowing them to vote directly on issues themselves or pass their vote on to a delegate.

The developers behind the app, Democracy Earth, believe it can solve a couple of problems associated with this type of democracy, including the ability of popular users to amass an unhealthy number of votes and the tendency for voters to become exhausted by the seemingly infinite number of issues requiring votes.
