SinglePoint has become a first mover in the U.S. with its proprietary bitcoin payments solution, which enables cannabis merchants and customers to respectively sell and purchase marijuana and marijuana-related products using credit and debit cards through the vehicle of bitcoin. The solution is fully KYC-AML compliant and can be deployed in any business, so while it is designed to serve cannabis businesses its potential doesn’t end there.

The solution, known as SingleSeed Payments, can be used in any state where marijuana enjoys legal status. Customers can sign up for the service at the point of sale or set up an account prior to visiting a cannabis dispensary. They can then conveniently make bitcoin-powered purchases using their debit and credit cards, just as they would buy any type of merchandise in any other type of store.

SinglePoint’s solution will also allow marijuana dispensaries to digitally track their product inventories and upload related data, such as photos and product descriptions. When a customer purchases a product, it will be automatically deducted from the merchant’s inventory listings.
