The funding round was led by Medici Ventures and Techstars, with participation from Urban Innovation Fund and Oakhouse Partners.
"Voting is a great application of blockchain technology," says Medici Ventures President Jonathan Johnson. "What Voatz is doing to allow more registered voters to participate remotely in elections in a safe and secure way is important. It bodes well for more widespread adoption of the Voatz application."
Urban Innovation Fund Managing Partner Julie Lein adds "Voatz has the potential to revolutionize the way we vote. By providing access through a mobile device, Voatz can dramatically increase citizen participation, and the company is committed to ensuring everyone votes safely and securely. We're excited to back Voatz to make voting more accessible and secure."
