According to public media reports, the Moscow Ministry of Information Technology announced that it will hold a tender to establish a system based on Ethereum, which will carry various electronic services provided by the city to the public. It is estimated that the development cost of the system is about 57 million Russian rubles (about 860,000 US dollars).

The services provided by the above platforms will include the distribution of documents related to owners and residents, as well as the allocation of stalls in the city's farmers market. The system will be based on a consensus-based consensus and can accommodate up to 1.5 million users simultaneously.

Under the terms of the agreement, once the project contractor is selected and an agreement is signed, it is estimated that it will take 60 days to build the platform. The Information Technology Department stated that its goal is to increase transparency in the blockchain and further enhance public confidence in Moscow's e-services.

The platform will also be combined with other blockchain experiments currently underway at the Moscow City Government, such as a voting platform called Active Citizen, which allows Moscow residents to publish their own questions about the location of new bicycle lanes and street decorations. Comments, or ratings of city activities.

Since 2017, Moscow has been testing Active Citizen. According to an official statement, in this fall's city council elections, the city also plans to allow blockchain technology for electronic voting in multiple regions. About 6% of voters can use electronic voting.

CoinDesk reported at the time that another pilot project in the city was launched in 2018, based on the Ethereum blockchain, which was used to allocate booths to the Moscow farmers market. During the peak season from April to November, there were more than 2,700 trading booths available for purchase in the system, and about 20,000 people made bids for purchases.
