Guangzhou’s Chancheng District rolled out on May 11 a new blockchain-enabled project (in Chinese) for community supervision and correction of ex-prisoners, parolees, and probationers.

Now, the project has finished its prototyping and the development of a credit evaluation system for ex-offenders will be completed by the end of this year, according to local media reports.

By combining blockchain and wearables technologies, the platform aims to facilitate the management of ex-offenders by better tracking their whereabouts and giving guidance accordingly. Ex-offenders will be asked to wear smart wristbands that can their trace their location. The platform will receive alerts once the monitored person roams beyond a designated area.
