Candidates in the ongoing Bitcoin Foundation election to fill two vacant board of director positions have expressed concern at a low voter turnout.
Candidate Jim Harper of the Cato Institute, and former global policy counsel for the foundation, has pointed out that only 364 of the organisation’s roughly 2,728 members have registered to vote – about 13%. This is in part due to the Bitcoin Foundation‘s requirement that members must confirm their intention to vote before becoming eligible, he contends.
The 364 figure means the minimum threshold for voters will be met if 183 of those ballots are actually cast, according to the Bitcoin Foundation‘s election committee chair Brian Goss. The previous election in 2013 saw 359 out of 713 registered voters cast ballots.
