The Gendarmerie’s cybercrime division (C3N) has announced that since September 2019 it has been using the Tezos blockchain to validate judicial expenses incurred during investigations.

As the official announcement states, this is one of the first examples of a government entity using a smart contract for operational purposes.

The new program allows C3N to acquire cryptocurrency from Europol-allocated funds in order to cover operational costs.

"Utilizing a blockchain protocol like Tezos for this process simplifies administrative overhead by ensuring C3N funds remain auditable and traceable while maintaining strong security," the announcement highlights.
