Our inspiration for this project came from the need to address two critical aspects of modern society: secure voting systems and the protection of intellectual property rights. We recognized the importance of ensuring transparent and trustworthy voting processes, especially in the context of smart cities where technology plays a significant role. Additionally, we sought to empower creators and innovators by providing them with a secure platform to protect and monetize their intellectual property in a rapidly digitizing world.

What it does


  1. Blockchain-based Voting System:

    • Implement a decentralized and transparent voting system using blockchain technology to ensure the integrity and immutability of votes.
    • Enable voters to securely cast their votes using their digital identities authenticated through biometrics or other secure methods.
    • Leverage smart contracts to automate the voting process, vote counting, and result verification, ensuring transparency and eliminating the possibility of fraud.
  2. Digital Identity Management:

    • Establish a robust digital identity management system that verifies and authenticates voters' identities, ensuring each person can vote only once.
    • Utilize biometric data, such as fingerprint or facial recognition, for secure and reliable identity verification.
    • Enable voters to securely manage their digital identities, giving them control over their personal information and ensuring privacy.
  3. Intellectual Property Protection:

    • Implement a secure and decentralized intellectual property registry using blockchain technology.
    • Enable creators to register their digital content, such as art, music, or written works, on the blockchain to establish ownership and timestamp their creations.
    • Leverage smart contracts to automate licensing agreements and royalty distributions, ensuring transparent and fair compensation for creators. -make Digital rights management more effective using blockchain technology.
  4. 5G Connectivity:

    • Utilize the high-speed and low-latency capabilities of 5G networks to enable real-time data transmission and communication between voters, the voting infrastructure, and the intellectual property registry.
    • Ensure reliable and secure connectivity throughout the voting process and intellectual property protection procedures.

This also has the potential to expand to the world of assets and decentralized finance as visible in the figma presentation.


  • Enhances trust and transparency in the voting process, increasing voter confidence in democratic systems.
  • Safeguards intellectual property rights, providing creators with a secure and decentralized platform for protecting and monetizing their work.
  • Utilizes the capabilities of 5G to enable seamless and secure data transmission, enhancing the overall efficiency and reliability of the platform. -Easy trackability of their IP and its usage .Moreover the

Remember to assess the feasibility of implementing such a project within the 48-hour hackathon timeframe and consider the available resources, skills, and technologies that your team has access to.

Project Description: Secure Voting and Intellectual Property Protection Platform for Smart Cities

How we built it

We would construct this project by leveraging our knowledge of blockchain development, digital identity management systems, and integration of 5G connectivity. Using blockchain technology, we would implement a decentralized voting system that ensures transparency, immutability, and secure vote casting. We ideate a digital identity management system that securely authenticates voters using biometric data. To protect intellectual property, we could utilize blockchain-based registries and smart contracts to establish ownership and automate licensing agreements. Integrating 5G connectivity allowed for real-time data transmission and seamless communication within the platform and also used edge computing to resolve situation near the point of data generated .

Challenges we ran into

During the ideation process, we encountered several challenges. Ensuring the security and integrity of the voting system was a primary concern, requiring us to ideate robust cryptographic protocols and prevent potential attacks. Implementing a scalable and efficient digital identity management system that complied with privacy regulations posed additional challenges. Integrating 5G connectivity required careful consideration of network infrastructure and compatibility with existing systems. Despite these difficulties, our team collaborated closely, researched extensively, and have ideated innovative solutions to overcome these obstacles.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

What we learned

Throughout the ideation of this project, we gain a deep understanding of blockchain technology and its applications in securing voting systems and intellectual property rights. We explored various concepts such as decentralized governance, digital identity management, smart contracts, and 5G connectivity. Our learnings helped us realize the potential of combining these elements to create a comprehensive platform that addresses the challenges faced in modern voting systems and intellectual property protection.
