Iceland Moving Away from Crypto Mining… Where to Next?

crypto mining

At the beginning of 2018, Iceland made headlines because of its heavy involvement in crypto mining. Because the country is an ideal climate for mining, Iceland is home to one of the world’s largest crypto farms.

But now things are changing; Iceland is shifting its focus. To what? Blockchain technology.

Iceland Crypto Mining No More?

Iceland has rapidly become a leader in cryptocurrency mining, but that doesn’t mean it has been all sunshine and rainbows. Back in March, reports circulated that Iceland was going to use more energy for crypto mining than it would …

Destroy America with Information Warfare

The Rise of CBD is Driving Innovation in the Cannabis Space

As legal cannabis products find their place in the North American markets, it’s the other cannabinoid that’s getting a lot of the buzz, as well as spurring on innovation in the cannabis space.

Cannabidiol (CBD) doesn’t get the user high, but it does reduce chronic pain and inflammation and a growing body of research suggests it could be useful for treating epilepsy, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and more.

Despite shifting and uncertain regulatory landscapes, cannabis and hemp companies in Canada and the United States are betting big on CBD, investing in new and innovative formulas, formats, and precision dosing methods.

This INNspired Article is brought to you by: Emblem (TSXV:EMC,OTCQX:EMMBF) is a Canadian cannabis company and a licensed producer (LP) of cannabis, growing through innovation, distribution and brands that resonate with consumers.Send me an Investor Kit

A brief explanation and history of CBD

CBD reacts differently with the endocannabinoid system—the system in the brain and nervous system that manages pain-sensation, memory, mood and more—than it’s cousin THC. Whereas THC binds directly to the system’s cannabinoid receptors to stimulate things like dopamine production, CBD reacts indirectly with the receptors and increases the body’s production of naturally-produced endocannabinoids.

With the sudden rush of attention around CBD in recent years, one could be forgiven for thinking that it’s a new discovery. In reality, CBD was first isolated from the cannabis plant all the way back in 1940. However, it would be a long time before we came to understand its potential. As with any medicinal drug, and particularly with one associated with cannabis, the road to understanding and legitimacy has been long and slow for CBD.

Dr. Roger Adams and a team of chemists at the university of Illinois were the first to discover the compound, though based on the paper that the team published in 1940, it’s clear that Adams and his team had no idea what they had discovered. The paper described CBD as “very toxic,” something we now know to be far from the truth.

It would take until 1963 for researchers to take another serious look at CBD when Dr. Raphael Mechoulam of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem determined the compound’s exact structure, opening CBD up for research as a pharmacological substance. In 1973, the first suggestions of CBD’s therapeutic potential were made when Brazilian researchers found reductions of the symptoms of epilepsy in animals. Further studies over the following two decades yielded promising results, showing a diminishment of convulsions in epilepsy patients, and promise for treating psychosis and anxiety. The discovery of the endocannabinoid system in 1988 shed light on how cannabinoids naturally work with the human body and further increased interest in cannabinoids as therapeutic medicine.

This research continued into the 21st century but it would be the plight of a little girl in Colorado that would bring the compound to mainstream attention. The high CBD/low THC cannabis strain Charlotte’s Web was developed in 2011 and named for Charlotte Figi, a then five-year-old girl with Dravet Syndrome, who was suffering from up to 300 grand mal seizures each week. As numerous other medications and therapies failed to help and Charlotte’s quality of life rapidly declined, her parents turned to CBD, a treatment that was unheard of for children at the time and extremely controversial. To the astonishment of Charlotte’s parents and physicians, the hail mary treatment did in fact reduce her seizures, completely.

Charlotte’s story attracted serious media attention from outlets all over the world, bringing attention and education on medicinal CBD to the public. Since then, the market for CBD products has exploded. CBD is now commonly used for serious disorders like Charlotte’s, for chronic pain and ailments, and as a general health and wellness product.

Today’s CBD market driving innovation in the cannabis space

The CBD market has evolved significantly from its days as a last resort treatment for people like Charlotte. As CBD’s benefits become increasingly and widely understood, and as innovation has opened new segments, the market is expected to have a compound annual growth rate of  39.19 percent up to 2021.

Today, with CBD products increasingly available throughout Canada and the United

States, innovation is the name of the game for CBD players looking to set themselves apart from the competition. To that end, CBD products can now be found in a huge range of forms. These include the standard tinctures of oil, edible products like candies, sport drinks and protein shakes formulated specifically to aid with post-workout aches and pains. Skin care product manufacturers have also taken notice of CBD’s utility for improving the look and feel of skin when used topically and have partnered with licenced producers to integrate CBD into their products.

Another big area of innovation in the CBD space is in precision dosing technology. Since cannabis and CBD products first began gaining steam as medicinal and wellness products, the question has been how best to ensure consumers are getting consistent and exact dosages for their specific needs. A number of companies in the space have worked out solutions. Canadian licensed producer Emblem Corp (TSXV:EMC,OTCQX:EMMBF) has partnered with Canntab Therapeutics (CSE:PILL) for the exclusive right to utilize Canntab’s Extended Release (XR) cannabis tablets in Canada. These proprietary time-released tablets are designed to release a predetermined and consistent portion of cannabinoids over an extended period of time, giving the consumer a longer lasting period of effect with reduced worry of side effects.

NanoSphere Health Sciences (CSE:NSHS) is another company focused on precision dosing technology. Nanosphere’s proprietary ‘nano-particle delivery’ system uses nanotechnology to encase cannabinoids in a phospholipid membrane similar to the membranes that protect cells in the body. This method ensures that a greater percentage of cannabinoids make it into the bloodstream, allowing for a more predictable dosage.

Regulatory status in Canada and the United States

In both Canada and the United States, the market is shifting in ways that create new opportunity for CBD products. Cannabis products, including CBD, remain illegal at the federal level in the US, but CBD is increasingly being allowed even in states that maintain tight prohibitions on THC cannabis. Currently, all but three US states have made exceptions to their anti-cannabis laws to allow for the sale of CBD. Federally, upcoming potential changes to the Farm Act could end the country’s prohibition on THC-free hemp, from which CBD can be extracted. The United States opening doors for CBD is one of the driving factors that could cause the American CBD market to grow faster than the legal THC cannabis market.

In Canada, the cannabis act will allow for the sale of recreational cannabis to adults, with tight restriction. Some licensed producers are hopeful that this massive regulatory shift will open the door for parliament to remove hemp-derived CBD from the controlled substances list entirely. This move would allow CBD products to move out of the dispensary and into broader market places like grocery stores and mainstream drugstores, allowing for a wider market reach for CBD.

Great Panther to Acquire Beadell in US$105-million Deal

Great Panther Silver (TSX:GPR, NYSE American:GPL) has acquired gold producer Beadell Resources (ASX:BDR) in a scheme implementation deed worth US$ 105 million, the companies announced in a joint statement on Sunday (September 23).

Under the terms of the deal, Beadell shareholders will receive 0.0619 common shares of Great Panther for each ordinary share of Beadell, valued at approximately AU$ 0.086 a share. This will result in approximately 103.6 million Great Panther shares being issued.

“This is a transformational transaction for the shareholders of Great Panther and Beadell. Great Panther has grown and optimized its operations in Mexico, acquired and advanced its Coricancha project in Peru, and is now positioned to add a sizeable producing mine in Brazil,” stated James Bannantine, president and CEO of Great Panther.

Within the acquisition, Great Panther will acquire Beadell’s 100 percent-owned Tucano gold mine, which produced 129,764 ounces of gold last year.

Great Panther brings the capital to deliver on Tucano’s substantial near- and long-term resource growth potential and to continue mine optimization initiatives,” Bannantine added.

The companies have stated that the deal will provide an increase in gold and silver production, as Great Panther has produced 4.0 million silver-equivalent ounces this year while Beadell has amassed 130,000 gold ounces in the same time frame.

The miners have also stated that the transaction has spurred the possibility of restarting Great Panther’s Coricancha mine.

If operations at Coricancha do restart, it could potentially generate average annual production of 3.1 million ounces silver-equivalent based on the results of a preliminary economic assessment, which the company completed in May of this year.  

All in all, the combined company is expected to have attributable proven and probable reserves of approximately 1.5 million ounces of gold. Beadell will contribute measured and indicated resources of around 0.8 million ounces of gold and inferred resources of approximately 1.5 million ounces of gold.

Meanwhile, Great Panther’s contribution of measured and indicated resources are approximately 49.4 million ounces silver-equivalent with inferred resources of approximately 48.5 million ounces silver-equivalent.

For its part, Beadell is enthusiastic about the experience and financial security it will acquire from the transaction.

“By undertaking this transaction, Beadell shareholders will benefit from Great Panther’s strong balance sheet, steady cash flow, experienced management team and improved market liquidity via Great Panther’s TSX and NYSE American listings,” stated Dr. Nicole Adshead-Bell, CEO and managing director of Beadell.

The deal is expected to be fully approved and finalized in early 2019.

As of 1:54 p.m. EST on Monday (September 24), Great Panther was trading at C$ 1.17, while Beadell was trading at AU$ 0.057.

dynaCERT Updates on IAA Commercial Vehicle Trade Show

dynaCERT Inc. (TSXV:DYA) (OTCQB:DYFSF) (FRA:DMJ) (“dynaCERT” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on events at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Trade Show in Hanover, Germany which is held from September 19 to 27, 2018.

IAA Trade Show

The dynaCERT sales and engineering team have had meetings daily at the show with some Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) that include Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, MAN Truck, Volvo, and Freightliner.  Other OEMs are scheduled for meetings with dynaCERT for the remainder of the trade show. These OEMs have already begun development designs and prototyping of new technology to reach the very onerous CO2 regulatory targets due in 2025 (see earlier press release dated September 24, 2018). Of great interest to OEMs is the HydraGEN™ Technology for reduction in overall emissions, but, in particular, the CO2 reduction whereby a HydraGEN™ unit would become one of several technologies used to achieve the European CO2 regulation standards mentioned in the press release mentioned above.

These discussions with OEMs also included opportunities to consider the aftermarket sales of HydraGEN™ technology through the respective current dealer networks of OEMs.  Sales of dynaCERT’s line of products would be for both dealer resale of pre-owned vehicles and to existing customers that bring their vehicles to dealers for service.  The opportunity to dynaCERT could be very significant as, for example, one particular dealer sells only 200 new trucks per year but has 1,000 customers representing more than 2,500 trucks.  Management of the Company see these potential relationships as a particularly effective market potential for the HydraGEN™.

On September 18, 2018, prior to the official show opening, management of dynaCERT Inc., dynaCERT GmbH, and the German dealer H2-GreenTech participated in a press interview event open forum.  Press journalists from across Europe asked questions on technical, commercial and market-related topics such as, “What are dynaCERT’s plans for expansion in Europe? and When will dynaCERT have Homologation?”  Management was pleased to present the TUV testing results which received a very positive reaction.

Enrico Schlaepfer, VP Global Sales states, ”Participating at this year’s IAA, the worlds largest commercial vehicle trade fair, opens a window for dynaCERT to a whole new clientele of environmentally-focused firms and individuals that understand our HydraGEN™ Technology is an important tool to help them save fuel and reduce emissions. We met with owners and operators, potential dealers and distributors and OEMs at the fair and took this opportunity to introduce the HG1 line of products in order to advance and build a strong and reputable sales network.”

Jim Payne, CEO & President, stated, ”Working with dynaCERT GmbH, and our German dealer H2-GreenTech, we have launched our HydraGEN™ product into Europe as the ‘First-to-Market’. This was evident by the strong interest shown at the dynaCERT trade booth at the IAA as visitors came to see the technology that can deliver a significant reduction in greenhouse gases and save the user money with fuel savings.”

Massive Sulphides Mount Up at Garibaldi’s Nickel Mountain

Garibaldi Resources (TSXV:GGI; OTC:GGIFF) is pleased to announce that assays from the first holes of the continuing drill program at its 100-percent-owned Nickel Mountain project in the Eskay Camp have confirmed wide intervals of near-surface nickel-copper-rich sulphide mineralization, also including cobalt, platinum, palladium, gold and silver, in all directions surrounding the 2017 discovery zone.

As quoted in the press release:

Steve Regoci, President and CEO of Garibaldi, commented: “The potential scale of the Nickel Mountain system, and the high grades and metal tenors confirmed within the growing footprints of the Discovery zone-Northwest zone corridor, continue to excite our team of nickel sulphide experts. We’ve already more than doubled last year’s total meters drilled (8,000 m vs. 3,671 m, drilling of hole #36 is now in progress) and we’ve started the process of stepping out dramatically in multiple directions from the Discovery zone to follow both the geology and our state-of-the-art geophysics data from borehole EM and VTEM.

“We now expect a steady flow of results and a very exciting fourth quarter as drilling extends deep into the season to capitalize on the growing opportunity for new discoveries. Geologists are targeting the mineralized ‘throat’ areas of an extensive magmatic system. Our current working capital position is very strong at $ 20 million,” Regoci concluded.

Favre-Leuba Selects WISekey’s WISeAuthentic Blockchain Platform to Protect Timepieces

WISeKey International Holding  (SIX: WIHN; OTCQX: WIKYY) has announced that it has partnered with Favre-Leuba AG to implement the WISeAuthentic Blockchain edition to authenticate and protect Favre-Leuba’s watches.

As quoted in the press release:

Purchasing an exclusive Swiss watch is always a matter of great joy and pride, but this purchase comes with the concern that the timepiece maybe stolen or that the watch itself may not be an original. While most high-end watch brands find it extremely difficult to stop such acts, Favre-Leuba has taken steps to protect its watches. Reliable methods include the use of cutting-edge software or blockchain technology, which together with on-the-ground measures can ensure the authenticity of the watch. Moreover, if the watch is stolen, it can be traced thus making it difficult to be traded on the secondary market. This control is possible to practice because the identity of each watch is stored on an immutable ledger in the implemented system.

At Favre-Leuba, the welfare of its luxury tool watches continues long after they leave the manufacturing facility.  Upon activation of a Favre-Leuba warranty, the legitimate ownership of the watch is registered in the company’s highly secure SAP database and is supported by WISeAuthentic blockchain technology. Owners of a new Favre-Leuba luxury timepiece become digital members of an exclusive club and their registered watch is protected by Favre-Leuba’s 24/7 online fraud prevention unit.

Each Favre-Leuba timepiece has a unique serial number etched on the watch. Upon ownership of a new Favre-Leuba piece, the authorised Favre-Leuba retailer must activate the warranty of the watch. Each watch is accompanied with a warranty card which has a unique number and  a unique electronic identity that is generated by the WISeAuthentic blockchain platform and engraved into a WISeKey Secure Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) hardware chip. The identity is a unique ePassport able to identity the product on the blockchain ledger.

Hendelson sells amazing 1792 half disme

If they gave awards for the best individual coin sale of the autumn collecting season, Brian Hendelson, president of Classic Coin Company of Bridgewater, N.J., would be the first nominee.

He has just accomplished a $ 1,985,000 private treaty sale of a one of the crown jewels of American Numismatics.

It is the 1792 half disme.

Not only that, it is the finest known example of it.

The Professional Coin Grading Service calls it MS68.

From an historical point of view, you cannot improve upon a pedigree that says the coin was once in the possession of Thomas Jefferson, who at the time the half disme was struck was serving the new federal government as the secretary of State.

That position in 1792 had responsibility for the United States Mint.

That put Jefferson was in charge of American coinage.

Further, the newly sold half dime was owned personally by the first director of the Mint, David Rittenhouse, and passed it down through his family until 1919.

The current buyer wishes to remain anonymous, so we collectors might not ever know who it is, but Hendelson tells us what he can.

“The Rittenhouse 1792 half disme is a small coin with huge historical significance,” said Hendelson.

“It was purchased by the owner of The Dazzling Rarities Collection. He wants to remain anonymous while he’s assembling an amazing collection of the most famous and wonderful United States rare coins.”

If you read this statement as I do, the secret of who owns the Dazzling Rarities Collection will be revealed at some exciting time in the future.

Other names on the provenance are the Knoxville Collection, Steven Contursi and the Cardinal Collection.

Hendelson acquired the 1792 half disme 2013.

He has displayed it at the American Numismatic Association conventions in 2013 in Chicago, Ill., 2017 in Denver, Colo, and 2018 in Philadelphia.

Perhaps most appropriately, it was also displayed in 2014 and 2015 at Mount Vernon, George Washington’s Virginia home.

As President, Washington took a keen personal interest in the establishment of American coinage.

Washington orders 1792 half disme

ANA Money Museum Curator Doug Mudd wrote this for the 2018 exhibit:

“On July 13, 1792, the first U.S. Mint coins were struck for distribution at the request of President George Washington in a basement close to the site for the new Mint … The coins were distributed by (Thomas) Jefferson to foreign dignitaries, members of the government and others,”

In the 18th century, the coins were of interest to dignitaries.

In the 21st century, they are blessed by celebrities.

Hendelson said, “One of the visitors who came to the display was Rick Harrison from the popular Las Vegas-based television show, ‘Pawn Stars.’”

Harrison has been no stranger to ANA conventions in recent years.

Founding Fathers, dignitaries, celebrities.

Coin collectors have always taken notice of these illustrious individuals as well as their coins.

Now there are 1,985,000 more reasons to pay attention.

For those keeping track, Hendelson has helpfully pointed out that the previous record price for a U.S. half dime was $ 1.5 million for this same coin in 2007.

What will the rest of the autumn offer to top this?

It will be great fun to find out.

Buzz blogger Dave Harper won the Numismatic Literary Guild Award for Best Blog for the third time in 2017 . He is editor of the weekly newspaper “Numismatic News.”

Alliance Growers Continues to Close Multiple Tranches of the $2,000,000 Private Placement, Settles Debt and Grants Stock Options

Alliance Growers (CSE: ACG) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed a fourth tranche of 5,184,856 units (the “Units”) on September 24, 2018 at $ 0.14 per Unit for proceeds of $ 725,880, getting the Company closer to completing the $ 2,000,000 private placement.

Each Unit of the private placement announced on August 27, 2018 consists of 1 common share and 1 transferable common share purchase warrant exercisable for three years at $ 0.20. To date, the Company has raised $ 1,350,706 with the issuance of 9,647,899 units. In connection with this raise, the Company will pay Agent and Finders Fees and issue 195,394 broker Units on the same terms as the Private Placement Units.  All securities issued pursuant to the placement will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of closing. The proceeds from the $ 2,000,000 financing will be used primarily to advance the Company’s two main projects: the continued development of the Cannabis Biotech Complex and the construction of the BiocannaTech facility in Montreal, a late stage ACMPR applicant.

Commenting on the financing, Dennis Petke, Alliance Growers President and CEO said, “Although the process has taken longer than expected, we are very pleased with the demand for this recent financing, as it is expected to be oversold. We have commitments for the remaining 5 million units in the coming 5 to 10 days, with an expectation of an over-allotment. The Company will continue to close additional private placements at progressively higher prices over the next several months to fund the business plan. We would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support as we work towards realizing our vision of taking Alliance Growers to where the market is going, not where it is today.”

Alliance Growers Corp. (CSE: ACG) (the “Company”) announces that the Board of Directors has approved the grant of 5,150,000 options to directors, officers and consultants of the Company, which options are exercisable into common shares of the Company at a price of $ 0.20 per share. Subject to the rules of the Canadian Securities Exchange and the Company’s Stock Option Plan, the options have a term of five years and will expire on September 24, 2023. At the time of the grant, the prior days’ closing price of Alliance common shares was $ 0.18.

Koios Beverage Corp. Secures Up To $28-million Equity Facility From Alumina Partners (Ontario) Ltd.

Koios Beverage (CSE:KBEV, OTC:SNOVF) (the “Company” or “Koios”) is pleased to announce the Company has entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) for a draw-down equity facility of up to $ 28,000,000. The Agreement provides for equity private placement offerings (each, an “Offering”), to be conducted between the Company and Alumina Partners (Ontario) Ltd. (“Alumina Partners”), a subsidiary of Alumina Partners LLC, a New York based private equity firm that has made significant investments in the cannabis sector, in draw-down amounts of up to $ 2,000,000.

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, Alumina Partners committed to purchasing up to $ 28,000,000 worth of units of the Company (each, a “Unit”), consisting of one common share (each, a “Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), with each Unit being purchased at a discount of between 15 to 20% of the then current market price of the Shares, or such lesser discount as dictated by Section 2.1 of Policy 6 of the Canadian Securities Exchange or as mutually agreed by the parties, with each Offering occurring at the sole option of the Company, throughout the 24 month term of the Agreement. The exercise price of the Warrants will be at a 50 per cent premium over the then current market price of the Shares. Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the applicable Offering. Closing of each Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of any necessary corporate and regulatory approvals.

The equity facility has been structured to best suit the Company’s rapid growth strategies while maintaining shareholder value. Each draw-down will be drawn upon at the sole discretion of Koios, allowing for the flexibility to access funds only when necessary. This strategy allows Koios to protect shareholder value while growing consumer awareness and meeting production demands for new and existing territories.

“In our minds, Alumina offers the ideal type of financing for a younger company like ours that faces rapid expansion, but also does not want to dilute their shareholders by taking on too much equity investment at lower valuations,” explained Koios CEO Chris Miller. This Agreement will allow us to comfortably fuel our expansion and help the Company execute its transition into profitable growth.”

“The most rapidly expanding and evolving markets – along with the highest gross margins – in the regulated cannabis space are presently in cannabinoid beverages,” said Adi Nahmani, Managing Member of Alumina Partners LLC. “We are pleased to stand behind Koios as they work to extend their commanding lead in this market and move to aggressively add new markets to their growing portfolio.”

All securities issued in connection with an Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation.

None of the securities issued in an Offering will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), and none of them may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state where such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Company.

Chris Miller, CEO and Director
