PotCoin – 2017 Summer Update

What started out as a simple vision for a solution to a real problem in an industry that is going through some major changes, much like the crypto space itself, we are in the midst of some very exciting times in the quest to legalize marijuana. For the past 3 years or so, we’ve been fortunate enough to have members of the PotCoin community provide contributions to the development of this much-needed coin.

While we’ve attempted to provide updates when possible, we know that many of you would like to see what’s being worked on more frequently and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why over the next few weeks, we plan to provide more regular updates on some of the many initiatives being worked on. Much of that hard work is coming to fruition and for now, we’re pleased to share with you some of the highlights:

PotChain API

For all the development inquiries we’ve received in recent months looking for easy entry points to program PotCoin apps, we are pleased to announce that you now have access to full API capabilities. So now, you can build whatever you want to support this great coin!


The dispensaries are coming!

Over the next little while, we’ll be announcing our progress on that front and our forecast for the future. This is a huge part of what we’re trying to achieve with this coin, so we’re very excited that so many dispensaries have reached out looking to accept PotCoin.

Buying and selling PotCoin made even easier

PotCoin is already supported on some of the largest exchanges in the space like Poloniex, Bittrex, Changelly and we’re in talks to get it accepted on several more. Thanks to the overall exposure to PotCoin in the month of June, the community of peer-to-peer users on PotWallet is growing and the accepted options for payment are growing too. Based on business development inquiries received, there will be more options coming up in the near future as well, making it even easier to acquire PotCoin, without all the extra steps.

Updates and improvements

Over the coming months, we’ll also be making much-needed updates to the website. We want to thank those who provided us feedback and want to invite new visitors to provide theirs as well. We’ve also enlisted new community members to help with some of the other vital parts like social media posting of updates, responses, and industry news. Same goes for the support and ticketing system and the turnaround for development fixes – we appreciate your patience so far and can assure you that it is only going to get better.

Global awareness

In June, people around the world learned about PotCoin through the initiative of sending Dennis Rodman to North Korea. PotCoin was featured in the global news, from CNN and Washington Post to BuzzFeed and Mashable… even Steven Colbert managed to squeeze it into his monologue!  At that time, we saw PotCoin’s market cap hit an all-time high of close to $36M and it now sits at over $20M (according to coinmarketcap). That an increase of over 600% from where it was at the beginning of this year! And we’re confident that with everything being worked on this year, and with what we hope our community will build upon now that they can, the interest and adoption of PotCoin will only continue to increase.

The cause behind the coin

We’re committed to joining the fight with so many already out there, working to ensure that legalization is adopted more widespread so that PotCoin can serve its purpose. Even if you’re not a consumer yourself, there are so many positive reasons to legalize cannabis – from reducing the financial debt incurred by enforcing cannabis possession laws (approx. $3.6 billion annually in the US alone) to the increasing studies that show marijuana’s positive effect in the medical field, such as helping fight cancer and reducing epileptic seizures.  And let’s not forget the current epidemic of opioid deaths, predicted to kill nearly 500,000 Americans in the next decade, which could be greatly reduced by medical marijuana!  Our mission can only get easier if more people are made aware of the facts behind why legalization is so important.

Keep checking back here regularly for more updates, because they’re coming!

Development, integration, adoption, as well as many more fun and exciting ways to get people from everywhere around the world to know about PotCoin! And if you haven’t yet done so, join the community and send us your ideas, thoughts, questions… You’ll be helping everyone!

So stay tuned for more upcoming news and for now, PEACE, LOVE, POT & DENNIS RODMAN!

Dennis Rodman Heads Back to North Korea

NBA legend Dennis Rodman traveling for his fifth time to the Communist country

This historic trip made possible by PotCoin

NYC, NY- 6/13/17-Hall of Famer and former NBA bad-boy Dennis Rodman is headed back to North Korea on Tuesday, June 12, 2017, thanks to the community-based cryptocurrency for legalized marijuana – PotCoin.

Rodman made his first visit to North Korea in February 2013. Since then, he has previously visited the country 4 times and is known to be a trusted confidant of the Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un.

Dennis Rodman is in the very rare position to be able to claim long-time friendships with both the Supreme Leader of North Korea, as well as with the current President of the United States.

Rodman was a cast member on two seasons of Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice (seasons 8 and 13).

The nature of his visit has yet to be disclosed, but the former NBA star promises to provide details of his trip upon his return to the USA.

“I’m really looking forward to spending time with the wonderful people of North Korea and of course, visiting with the Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un.” “I want to thank the folks at PotCoin” Rodman said, “They realized the importance of this trip and made it all possible for me.”

Rodman’s long-time agent Darren Prince said “Anyone who knows Dennis knows he’s trying to use his relationship to open the line of communication and send a message of peace and understanding”.

PotWallet Launches its Potcoin Mobile Wallet App

Dear Potcoiners,

It is with great pleasure we are officially announcing the launch of our Potcoin mobile wallets for Android and iOS.

It has been a long road with many road blocks but our development team is pushing ahead with our plan for 2017.

The PotWallet app is currently available only to Android users. You can download it directly from Google Play Store – PotWallet

We have had some setbacks with Apple as they currently do not recognize Potcoin as an accepted digital currency for the App Store. We are in constant discussion with them to get Potcoin accepted on the store in order to open up to future developments and adoption.

In the meantime, we are looking for an OTA (over-the-air) distribution solution for all iOS users. Once implemented, we will share the official link on which you can download the PotWallet App for your iOS devices.

We wanted to give everyone a quick update regarding the Winter/Sprint roadmap we posted back on December 29th. As promised, we will make our best efforts to keep the community aware of what we are doing and working on.

• We have submitted the Potwallet App to the Apple stores but got denied. As per Apple’s policy, No specific reason is given but their agent hinted that PotCoin as a cryptocurrency is not yet accepted on the store. We will continue to work with Apple and their requests hoping they will eventually approve the App.

• The Android App, everything went through fine and we are adding latest patches to it and will push it live soon.

• The new updates and features for PotWallet.com are done and are being tested internally, so far no major issues have been reported, Security is the most important thing for us and we want to make sure users coins are well protected so please be patient and we will release more news once it’s ready.

• We have signed an agreement with a Licensed Producer in Canada to offer PotCoin as a reward system and to accept PotCoin as a form of payment. The LP will release the news in the coming month.

• We have also been approached by some Medical Marijuana Sites in Canada that are looking to offer PotCoin as a reward system, more news will come next month.

2017 is going to be a big year for PotCoin and PotWallet. Many exciting news and developments to come.

Potcoin Development Update – Dec 2016

Hello Everyone,

We wanted to give everyone a quick update of what we’ve been working on. As promised, we will make our best efforts to keep the community aware of what we are doing and working on.

We believe being the most transparent possible will yield the best possible outcome.

The Beta version launch of our PotWallet App was a great success. We thank all beta testers for their valuable feedback.

We are looking into submitting the Apps to the corresponding stores (Apple, Google, Microsoft) in early 2017.

Our team has grown to 4 full time developers as we continue to build the systems necessary to make Potcoin and PotWallet scale to high volume transactions.

We will be announcing our 100% refactored version of PotWallet in the beginning of 2017 as well. This version will include a revamped interface, new features, drastically improved scalability and security.

We are also building extensive WEB plugins and extensions to make Potcoin easily acceptable on all platforms (magento, wordpress, shopify, etc…)

As legalization is fast approaching in Canada, we are striving to make sure all our systems are GO to accommodate the flow of new Potcoin users and transactions.

We are currently in negotiation with many MMJ Licensed Producers in Canada in order to accept Potcoin and offer it as a reward system to their patients.

They are very excited about Potcoin and see the many benefits of a system like that for patients, producers, doctors and everyone involved in the industry.

2017 is going to be a big year for Potcoin and PotWallet. Many exciting news and developments to come.

Stay tuned fellow Potcoiners !!!
