SOVRINTown- Bingo Card eVoting with IOTA Smart Contracts

Under the SOVRINTown banner, TK and others are working hard to bring Transparency and Honesty to Voting on IOTAs Tangle via eVoter validation using IOTA Access,  where such validated eVoters also vote on and approve  IOTA Smart Contracts controlling future eVoting and eGovernance management of public service budget spend and control to multi-sig wallets.  

This post is a sneak peak of the SOVRINTown concept centred around the "Bingo Card"  Method of Voting, that is the validated eVoter is placing issued colored coins into fields on the Bingo Card via their Browser, Mobile App, or if they have no device, do the same  via a Low cost Polling Station Booth (Raspberry Pi/FPGA Combo running IOTA Hornet, summarily described at the end of this post).

The post primarily lays out for the investor and developer, the 'framework' in which SOVRINTown development and test efforts operate, hi-lighting key information in each section to help create a better understanding of the time and effort required to actually built an eVoting Solution with complete transparency and honesty to avoid future Voting Schmozzles. (Multi-Schmoozing gone way wrong.) 

(like the 2020 election in the US is in, right now and, yes I spell Schmozzle  with a  'c'  like Schmooze   ;)  .)

All  reader comments  and ideas as usual are welcome in the common section below. :)

Acceptance Plan Test Cases:  The Only way to Drive Development and Test Success to a Quality MVP

Now that we have Requirements, what do the Test Cases look like for each Requirements, the pass/fail metrics, which make up the Acceptance Plan?


Ok, now  we have an Acceptance Plan, Now we can Write up the Use Cases which Match those Test Cases

Primary Use Cases

Secondary Use Cases

Exception Use Cases



Software Architecture- Covering all the bases...

With the Use Cases in Place, we can now start to Detail the Software Architecture, first predicated on Technology choices which best meet the general requirements around RAASSPS 







Safety (Chain of Custody/Audit, )



Software Tools: How we work

Architectural Design : Archimate

Design Principles : TOGAF       

Programming Languages:

               Smart Contracts : IOTA Specific- WIP

      Software as a Service Template: MEAN Micro-Services Software Architecture

      Open Source Software Project Use:

               IOTA Specific- TANGLE both Bee and Hornet Nodes, SecureID

              SOCIETY2 Toolkit - its WIP, but SECRETS is out

              SOVRINTown "Special Sauce" : Milspec C2 Chain of Custody Data and Action Logging- Sherlock

              3rd Party- Non Domain Expertise which gets plugged in

       Cloud Service Specific:

               Maybe DO, Who Knows.. it's still early

                Definitely KVM, Containers with eith K or Docker Deployment using YAML and Terraform

Breaking the Small Wind Mold- Darwind5 Circa 2012

This blog is where I post about break thru "non-subsidized" Green Tech anything that helps.. like our new WRRhead four rotor tech (formerly TWIND Power 2 rotor tech) at, and occasionally I talk "BESS" Battery Energy Storage Systems which actually make wind and solar better options when the kWhr costs in below US $125.00 (Zinc Air based BESS VIZN, Zinc8, NantEnergy) with 20 year lifespan, lots of re-charge cycles w/ deep cycle draw ;)
