About Liquium Voter App Demo
Liquid democracy using the Ethereum Blockchain
Liquium is an Open Source polling framework based in Smart Contracts running in the Ethereum network which allows to perform liquid democracy.
We've build a template for organizations which want to integrate a public, fair and transparent polling system, so they can modify it for their own context just forking this repository.
What is liquid democracy?
Delegative democracy, also known as liquid democracy, is a form of democratic control whereby an electorate vests voting power in delegates rather than in representatives. The term is a generic description of either already-existing or proposed popular-control apparatuses.

There's also a really good video by Jakob Jochmann in Youtube which explains this concept really well.
