ICO is coming: Boulé — are they serious?
09/26/2017

Overview from the team kript.io


What is Boulé: a blockchain-based remote voting system.
Project: the service scans and verifies a voter's ID. A mobile app collects and counts the votes in real-time.

The blockchain solves at once several problems of traditional electronic elections: protection from frauds and falsification, reduction of election costs, and anonymity of voters.

One more argument from developers: the youths who will have their first voting experience have grown up in a modern digital world so they will definitely need a convenient and safe service.

Website: boule.one

Analog: followmyvote.com.

How they differ from the competitors:
during the pre-ICO Boulé raised 25 times more than Followmyvote did after the whole campaign on Kickstarter (it was cancelled in the end).

How they want to make money: the developers are planning to sell tokens to the electoral organisers who will distribute them among voters to collect the votes. Later, Boulé will redeem the used tokens.

Market size:
no info yet. Just for you to understand the approximate size: according to the report of OpenSecrets, the election of the Congress and the President of the United States in 2016 cost $6.44 billion. But, of course, this number includes all expenses, and it's shrouded in mystery how much exactly was spent on organising polling stations and counts.
What their token gives you: the right of vote.

Token price:
1 BOU = 0,001 ETH.

How much they want to raise on ICO:
during the pre-ICO they raised 612 ETH (~$178 thousand). The plan is to raise 80 thousand ETH (~$23 million).

Where the money will go:

65% — technical development of the platform and integration with pre-existing electoral systems
20% — management and operations
10% — marketing and promotions
5% — legal expenses
Crew: the developers are Italian. As they say, they previously worked for the local political party and were in charge of the promotion. The main project — they created and released on the market a food delivery service called SushiJet Srl.

Free tokens:
there aren't' any.

Project status:
they are supposed to release an alpha version in September. The developers have already signed a contract with Scientific Institute of Spanish eGovernment. If the testing is successful, Boulé will sell the first service licences in Spain and South Africa in Q1 of 2018

Communication:
facebook, twitter, linkedin, telegram, medium, reddit

Date of ICO:
25th October — 12th November.
