Enterprising companies like SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC Pink: SING) (SING Profile) are utilizing cryptocurrency as a means of bypassing federal restrictions and providing cannabis businesses with the financial transaction solutions they so critically need.

Whether you are skeptical about bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies or believe the future of finance lies within them, the steamrolling growth of these virtual currencies is undeniable. Earlier this year in Japan, cryptocurrencies became nationally recognized as a legal form of payment, and initial coin offerings (ICOs) have jumped from raising just a few hundred million dollars in 2016 to raising more than $3 billion in 2017 (http://cnw.fm/zs5Ky). So far during December, bitcoin has broken the $17,000 mark in terms of value per coin, which is an astronomical rise from where the cryptocurrency sat at the commencement of 2017—just under $1,000 per coin as of Jan. 1 (http://cnw.fm/1KnDQ).

In serving unbanked and under-banked markets like the cannabis industry, the potential of cryptocurrency is clear. And even if marijuana becomes federally legal in the United States, the crypto solutions being pioneered by companies like SinglePoint (SING) will continue to have application in serving these and other enterprises—both high-risk and low.
