How we are the first to make Contingency Management (CM) possible and effective for all
Unbox Recovery distributes value in the form of Ucoins, a purpose bound token acting as an intelligent smart voucher for vulnerable individuals, and the unbanked.
Efficiency: Only pay out what was spent (within your RuleSet) eliminating any slippage with pre-paid cards, and it cuts out the credit card fees.
Reporting: No need for expensive audits on taxpayer money as real-time spending data is automated.
Community: Ucoins are programmed with a RuleSet dictating how they are spent, directing funds to the local business ensures projects leave a sustainable impact.
Embedded rulesets on the distribution (proof-of-presence) and redemption (payment) of value mitigate the current risks of CM, where patients fake attendance and spend rewards on items governments don’t want to fund.
Users with limited financial or technological experience can navigate the platform. The design ensures that even those with low literacy can intuitively control the user interface. The application also works on 2G environments.
Our wallet employs cryptographically secure web3 self-sovereign identity management – MyUnbox, ensuring that with full traceability of funds and transactions, individuals' privacy is not compromised. No personal details (such as name, address, email, phone number, Facebook account, etc.) are needed.
