Total reduction of prison violence
Prison violence is on the rise due to
theft of items of value between inmates.
Allowing inmates to put their valuables in CellBlocks
will devalue items they commonly trade for markup
prices, resulting in less violence within the prisons.
Faster transaction speeds when sending funds
Sending funds to an inmate can take
days to weeks to clear and documented.
With digital transactions, inmates can receive funds
within seconds no matter where their loved ones are located.
Reduction of theft by guards
This is no secret-guards have stolen from
inmates in the past, either items of
high value in the cells or from their accounts.
CellBlocks can never be taken from an inmate; this
eliminates anyone with sticky fingers from
Peace of mind for the inmates
Prisons get no money from
There is an estimated 3 billion dollars
worth of unrecorded transfers
across the U.S.
Smart contracts allows prisons to get a percentage of every
transaction through their facility generating income for the prisons.
Transparency for the prison administrations
Prison officials have never been able to
see the amount of transactions between
inmates in their prisons.
Thanks to the public ledger, administrations
will now have access to see what flows
through their prisons, and from whom.
Labor cost savings for state and federal prisons
With over 2 million inmates, the cost of processing payments from families adds up.
As CellBlocks is adopted, and people see
the benefits over paying by check or credit card,
it will reduce the labor needed by state administrations.
Building a system of trust
Inmates have a hard time trusting the system
that put them in there away to reliably hold their money.
By creating a decentralized system,
inmates now have an impartial system to trust.
Cost savings for inmates families
Systems like Jpay can charge
loved ones up to 45% to send funds to an inmate.
By using CellBlocks, inmates' loved ones
will be able to send 99.9% of the intended funds without high commissions.
