The global cannabis industry has been inhibited by regulatory restrictions for most of recent history, but the legal market has emerged rapidly as more governments legalize medical and recreational use. In Europe, using/selling small amounts of cannabis is not legal but tolerated in Spain, The Netherlands, and Switzerland. Due to the ‘shady’ image of the business, most banks, credit card companies, and payment providers won’t handle the money generated by the cannabis industry, even in places where it is completely legal. This leads to inefficient solutions such as cash transactions, which only add to the shady image of the industry. To address this problem, BitCanna will provide a decentralized payment network for the legal cannabis industry, by means of the BitCanna Coin (BCNA). Customers can use the BCNA to make purchases in both online and brick & mortar dispensaries, solving the current payment problems for the industry.
#Cannabis is an upcoming industry that still lacks some well-developed processes and systems that nearly all long-established industries have built and refined over decades. Banking services are still lacking despite industry growth. #bitcanna
