Georgia is a progressive country with politicians actively exploring futuristic technologies. Recently, they tried to offer bribes in cryptocurrency to attract voters. One opposition political party Girchi promised voters to vote for its candidate in the upcoming elections, and whoever votes for the candidate will get around $50 USD worth of cryptocurrency, people or campaigners who participate in mobilising voters will also get around $900 (90 GeD) and this has been considered as a one way of bribing voters. The non-governmental organisation (NGO) also created it own cryptocurrency known as Georgian Dollar (GeD) to boost its operations and improve its position. And it is highly expected that the sum of $50 in GeDs will be 100x more in the near future.
