VOTE is the native token of the Agora ecosystem. It incentivizes citizens and selected organizations to contribute to a secure and transparent election process by acting as authenticators of elections worldwide.
Agora is a global community of node operators maintaining a verifiable blockchain network which ensures a tamper-proof and 100% verifiable election process.
It consists of two types of node operators:
1. Consensus Nodes
Selected politically neutral third party organizations processing transactions and providing consensus on Agora’s blockchain
2. Citizen Auditor Nodes
Individuals who choose to enter a dedicated contract with Agora to verify the election process by auditing the consensus mechanism
Overview of Agora's Ecosystem
Each time Agora enters a contract with a government or private organization that intends to run an election, a portion of the cash inflow is allocated to purchase the required Election Reserved Tokens. At the end of the election period, Agora pays the node operators with the purchased VOTE tokens for their processing and verification work.
