created by a team at The New Inquiry, uses your computer's spare power to help contribute to community bail funds, assisting people in jail and their families who can't afford bail.  


Bail Bloc uses the power to mine a cryptocurrency called Monero, which is then converted into U.S. dollars to donate to the Bronx Freedom Fund and The Bail Project. No cryptocurrency knowledge required — all you have to do is run it in your computer's background.
