Similar to Bitcoin, in its anonymity and decentralization, ConCoin was created to meet the needs of over 6 million prison inmates throughout the state and federal prison system. Founded in 2014,  ConCoin is a means for inmates to trade for anything of value within the prison walls.  ConCoin is decentralized and exists outside of the purview of the government, and cannot be seized. Additionally, it is not possible for government officials or agents to directly tie account balances or other information to any one inmate.
