The blockchain is an emerging technology and the virtual blockchain is more emerging that incorporates the many benefits of virtualization and blockchain to create a better efficient and better unassailable technique for executing varied kinds of transactions. This paper offers a novel framework for virtual blockchain-based virtual voting, which takes in the advantages of virtualization and blockchain to construct a more efficient and protected system for conducting elections. The offered framework includes virtual keys, virtual ledgers, virtual smart contracts, and virtual voting components. We executed a sequence of experiments to estimate or evaluate the implementation of virtual voting based on virtual blockchain, and the outcomes of the work
showed that the offered framework is highly efficient, accurate, and secure, making it a promising solution for conducting elections in the digital age. The paper contributes to the literature on virtual blockchain
and virtual voting and provides insights into the potential of virtualization and blockchain for creating more efficient and secure systems for conducting various types of transactions. Finally, we achieved 1,000 Voting speeds in 10 seconds in contrast to traditional voting and a high smart contract performance in many feature
(Execution speed , scalability ad security)..
