Abstract

This paper provides an in-depth discussion on the public participation platform for urban governance developed based on blockchain technology, aiming to enhance the transparency of policy making and public participation through technological innovation. The article first introduces the potential of blockchain technology in enhancing the transparency of urban governance information technology and public participation, and then elaborates on the design concept, technical architecture, smart contract design, and the selection and optimization of the consensus mechanism of the platform. Through a comprehensive analysis of technical challenges, policy and regulatory adaptability, and user participation and acceptance. The article emphasizes the central role of smart contracts in enabling policy voting and feedback collection, explains the rationale for choosing the Proof of Stake (PoS) mechanism, and adapts and optimizes it for platform-specific needs. In addition, important strategies for protecting user data privacy and security are discussed, including the data encryption and access control techniques employed. The platform not only improves the transparency and efficiency of urban governance, but also provides an innovative solution for building a more open and democratic urban governance model by promoting active public participation.
