Another thing we should reconsider if anonymity is actually a required/desired thing in a direct democracy. Athenians voted by raising their hands, after all.

I'm afraid it wouldn't work. The social pressure is very strong. Many people would be afraid.

Yes, such technology would be easier to sell with at least pseudonymity working.

Pseudonimity is feasible with blockchain, but is that enough?

Well, as long as it only goes gives the voter ability to sign a message to prove that a particular ballot has been cast by them it seems okay.
