"In the U.S., the burgeoning cannabis industry is, perhaps, one of the most promising applications for bitcoin and blockchain technology. Despite being on course to record sales of $13.3 billion in 2020, according to research by New Frontier Data (http://cnw.fm/9yFTv), the U.S. cannabis market is currently plagued with banking issues stemming from the Controlled Substances Act. This decades-old statute classifies marijuana as a schedule I controlled substance. As such, businesses operating in states that have legalized cannabis for either medicinal or recreational use are often unable to access traditional banking services offered by financial institutions operating at the interstate level. SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is attempting to remedy the concerns presented to these currently all-cash businesses by providing a cryptocurrency alternative (http://cnw.fm/G7es0) to traditional banking solutions.

"Year-to-date, shareholders have taken note of SinglePoint's sustained growth and aggressive acquisition strategy. The company's price per share hit $0.0586 on October 20, 2017, up from $0.01 in early January. An updated investor kit detailing the company's products, leadership team and investor highlights provides readers with essential insights into the company's goals."
