“Digital lawyer of the year” awards
WE.Vote was used to choose “Best teacher of digital rights” at the “Digital lawyer of the year” awards
To choose the best teacher of digital rights within the annual “Digital lawyer of the year” awards Moscow Digital School needed a reliable and high-tech service for popular e-voting with a potentially unlimited number of participants.
We developed a customized admin panel, so the client can add nominees himself and set the time when the voting starts and ends. This admin panel was integrated with the awards portal, all the changes were synchronized.
All you need to vote was just to leave your telephone number on the voting page. Then a third-party service for SMS mass messaging sent a verification code to the number. After entering that code at the site of the awards, a voter got access to his blockchain ballot, which had been automatically created in WE.Vote with the voter’s account.
According to the client’s requirements, revoting was turned off, though WE.Vote has such an option. Also, we included a live counter of voters, available both on the site and admin panel. After the voting ended, generating new ballots was automatically turned off.
Exclusive blockchain advantages
- Easy integration both with the client’s front-end and the third-party service for SMS mass messaging
- Flexible service customization according to project requirements — in this case, we turned off revoting option and added a live counter of voters
- Stability under potentially heavy loads of a popular vote
- Anti-cheat protection: a single vote from a single phone number
- Validity and protection of the results thanks to using blockchain and cryptography
3833 voters took part in electing the best teacher of digital rights in 2021 — it’s several times more than expected. Not a single trouble in the service was reported during the voting. Alexey Minbaleev — head of the digital rights and technologies department, co-head of “LegalTech” innovative laboratory of Kutafin Moscow State Law University — won the nomination. All the winners were awarded at the “Runet Prize” ceremony on December, 7.
“Blockchain-based services provide the best anti-fraud protection among all e-voting services, and it was very symbolic to organize voting for the best teacher of digital rights at such a service. We’ve heard a lot about the opportunities if WE.Vote, so we decided to choose it. Specialists from Waves Enterprise helped to integrate WE.Vote seamlessly into the infrastructure of our voting and created an easy-to-use interface for us. We ourselves added nominees, set the time range of the voting, and received the results” Dmitriy Zakharov, CEO of Moscow Digital School
