Electis is launching a new Tezos-based Web3 voting platform for election results in a project with King’s College London Blockchain Society

Electis is launching a new Tezos-based Web3 voting platform, which involves smart-contract execution of the election results in a project with King’s College London Blockchain Society (KCL Blockchain)

KCL Blockchain and Electis joined hands to organize a decentralized voting project for the society’s committee elections.

On Wednesday, the 29th of March, the King’s College London Blockchain Society conducted their committee elections on the Blockchain-based e-voting solution.

“Voting is an accomplished use case for Blockchain technology and ensuring equitable internal governance. Therefore, we decided to use Electis to guarantee an efficient, secure and transparent experience.”

– (Director of Consulting at KCL Blockchain)

The solution is based on the Tezos blockchain, and candidates and voters are registered with their Tezos wallets.

Through a smart contract, the election winner automatically receives an NFT in their wallet as a token. KCL Blockchain consists of four work streams: Legal, Consulting, Technology, and Operations. All streams recently held their chair elections.

With the election, the committee has, for the first time, elected their committee chairs with the Electis platform.

“With the wallet sign-in and NFT integration, we implement more Web3 features in our verifiable voting solution. It is great to put it into action for the first time with blockchain enthusiasts like the Kings College Students.“

– (Lena Melcher, International Partnerships Manager at Electis)

Blockchain for voting has been a thematic focus of KCL Blockchain as the student blockchain association is also conducting research about the space, most recently publishing a paper about blockchain and quadratic voting.

Electis launched its Electis.app solution in 2020, which is used in citizen engagement projects and company voting.

For the KCL Blockchain elections, the company has implemented Web3 features such as wallet sign-in and the smart contract execution of the vote, making it possible to integrate NFTs in the election process.

Candidates and voters now have the option to be registered through their Tezos wallets, and election results are executed through smart contracts.

In the KCL Blockchain election, this happened through the automatic transfer of an NFT to the newly elected chairpeople of the workstream committees.

KCL Blockchain

KCL Blockchain The King’s College London Blockchain Society (KCL Blockchain) was established to provide a way for students to participate and engage with the blockchain space.

This is done through organizing hackathons and conferences as well as producing research projects that provide insight into current markets.

KCL Blockchain is organized into four streams, namely, Law, Consulting, Technology, and Operations.


Electis has developed Web3, open-source e-voting solutions utilizing the Tezos Blockchain and ElectionGuard technology to provide voting and governance tools that are transparent, secure, and verifiable.

Use cases include a citizen participation platform for the French city Neuilly-sur-Seine, the University CRI Paris, and various UN-affiliated organizations such as YOUNGO, WGC, and SDG7.

More recently, the company has launched its company voting solution working on professional elections, and confidential surveying for private organizations as well as DAO governance.
