Law enforcement agencies of the Chinese metropolis Zhongshan will use a blockchain-based platform for monitoring persons released from prison on parole. The project started under the auspices of the Ministry of justice of the city district, according to CoinDesk, citing local media.

All information about the liberated citizens will be collected into a single database after they register when applying for work or receiving any documents. These data will be recorded and organized using the blockchain.

According to supporters of this idea, the introduction of monitoring ex-cons will minimize the risks of committing new offenses. In addition, the blockchain platform will reduce the burden on law enforcement officers, whose duties should regularly check what is in the moment, the specific citizen, who had been released early.

China has shown an increasing interest in blockchain technology. Local banks and companies are adopting intelligent platform into all areas of your business, allowing you to reduce costs and improve speed of service contractors.
