Internet of Things Inc. (TSX-V:ITT) (OTC:INOFT) Announces Strategic Investment Into Blockstrain Technology Corp. (TSX-V:SR.H)

Blockstrain provides seed-to-sale supply chain management blockchain applications to the cannabis market

 

TORONTO - March 21, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Internet of Things Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ITT); (OTC:INOFT); (FRANKFURT:71T) ("ITT Inc." or "the Company") a software and solutions provider to the Internet of Things market, is pleased to announce that it has made a strategic investment in Scorpion Resources Inc., to be renamed Blockstrain Technology Corp. (TSX-V:SR.H) ("Blockstrain"). Blockstrain delivers a secure and immutable blockchain platform to establish global certainty for cannabis strains and their ownership.

"Blockstrain is our first investment into our new wholly-owned subsidiary, Digital Blockware Inc. The timing is right for a truly decentralized blockchain platform to protect cannabis intellectual property and uphold stringent regulatory requirements," said Michael Frank, CEO of Internet of Things. "The sector is still in its infancy and while a lot of focus to date has been on the producers, industry research shows that there is actually more money in the associated ancillary markets. We look forward to working with the Blockstrain team in developing cannabis specific IOT solutions, and we have high expectations for our investments into Blockstrain and Braingrid Corporation and expect both to bring value to shareholders."

A 2016 Deloitte report estimates the base retail market value of recreational marijuana could be up to $8.7 billion. With ancillary services such as security thrown in, Deloitte projects a total market size of $22.6 billion. In arriving at these estimates, Deloitte included another 17% of respondents who said they "might" try marijuana if legalized, "suggesting the total potential marketplace…is close to 40% of the adult population."

Internet of Things Inc. has invested $100,000 into Scorpion Resources, Inc., who has entered in to an agreement to acquire Blockstrain, which will serve as its Qualifying Transaction.
