Since September 2019, the French Gendarmerie’s cybercrime division has been validating and recording judicial expenses on the Tezos blockchain. This is potentially one of the first examples of a government entity using a smart contract for operational purposes.


French Gendarmerie Get Into Tezos

The French Army and Gendarmerie’s Information and Public Relations Centre (SIRPA) announced the program, stating that:

As of September 2019, the Gendarmerie’s cybercrime division (C3N) has been validating judicial expenses incurred during investigations and recording them on the Tezos blockchain.

The program allows C3N to acquire cryptocurrency, using funds allocated by Europol, to cover operational costs.

The announcement was also confirmed by Nomadic Labs when approached by Bitcoinist. Paris-based Nomadic Labs is the main research and development centre for the Tezos platform.

Reducing Overheads Whilst Maintaining Privacy

Using a blockchain to record these expenses reduces overheads, whilst ensuring that the funds are traceable, and readily audited. In addition, the smart contract deployed will only allow access to specified individuals, thus maintaining security.

This is essential, as it allows the division to justify an expense without revealing operational activities, and potentially jeopardising ongoing investigations.

Nomadic Labs claims that this is the first ever smart contract developed by a public authority and used for operational purposes.

Tezos Has Been A Top Performer In 2019

The Tim Draper-backed Tezos platform has been performing well in terms of market cap so far this year. As Bitcoinist reported last month, this has more than doubled, making Tezos one of the top alt-coin performers. Unfortunately, this growth hadn’t been reflected in usage stats, which remained relatively low compared to it competitors.

However, just two weeks ago, Tezos saw another significant pump, prompted by Coinbase announcing staking rewards for XTZ tokens stored on its exchange. The token price surged up to 50%, causing spreads between Coinbase and other exchanges, and potential arbitrage situations.
