SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) Using Bitcoin to Bypass Banking Roadblocks

A total of 29 states now allow for comprehensive medical marijuana programs, and recreational marijuana is legal in eight. There’s no question that the country’s opinion of marijuana has changed. Public support for making marijuana legal has continued to climb over the years, as 61 percent of Americans now think recreational use of marijuana should be legal and 88 percent favor medical marijuana use. A vast majority of the states and the citizens of this country support legalized marijuana in spite of antiquated federal government strictures. These antiquated federal strictures create conflict. The states where it has been legalized, the…

Digital Currency Headed for Widespread Acceptance, Has Potential as Cure for Banking Concerns among Cannabis Companies

The banking industry is one example, as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has generally been unsupportive of backing cannabis-related investments. Since marijuana hasn’t been legalized at the federal level, most banks are hesitant to have any part of the $6.7 billion marijuana industry. While many industry experts expect this stance to change amid growing support for a bankable marijuana industry, 70 percent of cannabis companies currently operate without access to a corporate…

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (CIIX) Presents Obvious Upside

Archaeological research suggests that Cannabis Sativa, the source plant for cannabidiol (CBD) compounds, was one of the first agricultural crops planted by early man near the birth of agriculture some 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. The use of CBD for health benefits extends back several thousand years as well.

Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) Platforms of Opportunity

The transactional process of paying for goods and services has changed radically over the last couple decades. Not that long ago, cash registers and tellers were the only point of sale system in existence. Tellers had to manually enter each product cost, total the sale, take the money, place it in the cash drawer, then hand the customer a paper receipt. The only transaction record a business would have would be their own copy of the paper till roll. Point of sale systems evolved with computerization and eventually stored product price data on the register itself or on an attached…
