After major news agency Associated Press (AP) declared that they are “bringing verified election results to the blockchain,” those results have now been officially written on the Ethereum (ETH) and EOS blockchains.
“The Associated Press has counted the vote in US election since 1848. And, for the first time ever, the count will be verified and published on the blockchain,” it stands on Everipedia‘s website. Once the data is verified as authentic, it is then posted to the Ethereum and EOS blockchains.
And now, looking at the EOS Mainnet and Ethereum blockchains from which the data is directly read, Associated Press has called 44 out of 52 states. This includes 50 states, the District of Columbia, as well as the US in total.
“23 states called for [Donald] Trump, 21 states called for [Joe] Biden,” said the AP Election Mission Control page (11:03 UTC).
According to the results, the AP said Trump won swing states like Ohio, Iowa, and Florida, while Biden won Maine, Arizona, Vermont, etc.
