First Bitcoin Capital Corp. Press Release:
SEATTLE, WA–(Marketwired – Aug 8, 2017) – SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING) announces its purchase of $Weed which is one of the newest fiat currencies floated in the booming Cryptocurrency markets. The large block purchase is from crypto industry leader, First Bitcoin Capital (OTC: BITCF). After many months of collaboration, the two companies have decided this initiative is the starting point for a much larger play in the cryptocurrency markets. Weed “Coin” is a crypto currency geared toward solving the payment problems found in the cannabis industry. The coin recently had its ICO launch resulting in an impressive yet illiquid market cap of close to $60,000,000.
Currently WeedCoin is already listed on three exchanges. SinglePoint and First Bitcoin Capital plan to list and market the coin on many more exchanges soon. Additional listings and marketing efforts could generate greater interest levels found in such competitors as PotCoin as part of a partnership to move towards a massive consumer first approach. The consumer first approach overcomes the traditional issues of making a payment at dispensaries using cryptocurrencies.
A big barrier in making a payment at cannabis retail stores using cryptocurrency is the consumers do not yet have a wallet set up. This takes time and slows down this entire process. SinglePoint and First Bitcoin Capital plan to invest heavily in getting the consumers to sign up first, making sure they have the ability to quickly go in and make a purchase from a dispensary, painlessly. The consumer approach also lets the companies build in multiple programs such as loyalty, special offers, and the ability to track what kinds of products people are buying which leads to a massive database of what is popular, how much it is being sold for on average and many more insights to the cannabis industry.
The companies both believe that with the proper execution, users should find a similar experience to using Starbucks’ mobile payment system. An easy preload of your card, which enables you to purchase $Weed as money, instantly, then the employee at point of sale rings up your total and the consumers scan a barcode from their smart phone or tablet.
If you would like to acquire $Weed as a digital coin you can participate through any of the following three exchanges:
