Bitcoin Foundation Voting Reaches Quorum
NEW YORK (InsideBitcoins) – The board elections for the Bitcoin Foundation are well on their way to being official. After some initial concern about reaching a quorum, a sufficient number of eligible voters have cast their ballots in order to make the election valid. Of 1,523 total members, 246 out of 364 eligible ballots have been cast.
‘In the last election, it took 3-4 days and required a great deal of encouragement from me to get enough members to cast a ballot so that we could reach quorum. I remember feeling quite worried that we might not get there,’ Brian Goss, volunteer elections committee chairman said on the Foundation’s blog. ‘This time around, we included a confirmation step essentially equivalent to registering to vote that ensured a healthy participation rate from our most active members.’
