Would You Rather Be Holding Crypto or Cannabis?
High Times becomes the first company to receive Bitcoin payments for stock.
LOS ANGELES, CA–Facing the still-infant cryptocurrency industry is a hard truth. Bitcoin’s ups and downs offer sage wisdom on decentralized and non-regulated markets.
Bitcoin and its many alternatives designed digital tokens to make electronic transactions of all sorts easier. But not many use cryptocurrencies for everyday transactions outside of virtual currency exchanges. Yet the market keeps pushing forward, one indication that cryptocurrencies are not a simple fad.
Now, buyers are turning “stranded assets” in Bitcoin into “strategic assets” in the Cannabis industry.
High Times stays ahead of the trends investors care about, and is thrilled to announce this new way to pay for shares of its stock, accepting Bitcoin and Etherium as forms of payment for our Equity Crowdfund.
High Times will be the first company to offer Bitcoin payments through the FundAmerica equity crowdfunding platform, which lowers the barrier to entry for investors and offers an opportunity to buy shares at a discounted rate to the planned NASDAQ listing.
PAY FOR YOUR PRE-IPO STOCK WITH BITCOIN
Bitcoin through FundAmerica works simply and seamlessly to purchase stock through the High Times Regulation A+ offering. Buyers choose how much they would like to invest in US dollars, and the platform helps determine the amount of shares for the investor.
Next, buyers will select Bitcoin as the payment method on the High Times investor form, and the address for the High Times Investor wallet will be displayed.
Additionally, the FundAmerica platform shows investors the estimated amount of Bitcoin they will need to transfer to the wallet for the amount of investment they would like to make.
After a transaction is completed, the investors Bitcoin will be exchanged to USD for stock purchase within 24 hours.
STAYING AHEAD OF THE CURVE WITH CRYPTOCURRENCY IN A PRO-CANNABIS AGE
Given that cryptocurrency and blockchain technology are both now an integral part of the payment landscape within the digital space, investors will be excited about the option to use Bitcoin to invest in the High Times journey.
Because High Times is a mover and shaker within the pro-cannabis community and is rapidly moving into the investor market, the idea is to get investors excited about becoming shareholders in a movement that’s entirely different from any type of stock offering they have seen or considered before.
