RastaCake Decentralized Exchange Is Leading The CryptoCannabis Revolution

RastaCake has been developed to be the #1 AMM Decentralized Exchange for Tokenized Cannabis stocks, and a bridge between the traditional stock market and crypto market, making it easier to invest in cannabis stocks and assets placed in different countries at the same time from anywhere in the world.

What Are Tokenized Stocks?

Tokenized stocks are tokenized derivatives that represent traditional securities, particularly shares in publicly listed companies traded on regulated exchanges such as Scotts Miracle-Gro, Curaleaf, Aurora, Apple, Tesla and others.

The key benefits of tokenized stocks include fractional ownership of traditional securities, 24/7 access to markets, and greater liquidity to name a few. These digital assets are backed 1:1 by traditional stocks, entitling holders to the same economic benefits of owning the underlying stock.

What is AMM?

AMMs systems took off after they were first implemented by Shearson Lehman Brothers and ATD in the early 1990s.

In crypto, AMM is being used for the most important existing decentralized exchanges like Uniswap and PancakeSwap and it allows digital assets to be traded in a permissionless and automatic way, by using liquidity pools rather than a traditional market of buyers and sellers. Prices are determined by a constant mathematical formula.

Liquidity pools can be optimized for different purposes and are proving to be an important instrument in the DeFi ecosystem

RastaCake it’s a AMM Decentralized Exchange community owned, which means that all liquidity pools are managed and owned by the community sharing the profit from all transactions on the exchange.

Earn Passive Income

RastaCake is a community owned and driven project. All Profit-sharing from all liquidity pools and transactions fees on the exchange are distributed to $RCAKE holders, everyday at 4:20 PM in form of $ETH or $RKACE automatically deposited to your wallet . The tech behind this project will be managing the pools and farms so users can sit back, relax, and receive their profits automatically deposited in their Wallet.

A Secure Platform To Trade And Launch 4:20 Friendly Tokens

Their goal is to create a platform where any cannabis initiative can receive funds with RastaCake. This can include startup projects or already established cannabis businesses. They will be able to issue tokens backed in real stocks or assets.

$RCAKE Token Details

$RCAKE is the governance token of the RastaCake project and it’s mandatory to participate on voting and funding. When a new token is offered on market, having $RCAKE will be necessary in order to participate and the $RCAKE used will be burned to reduce the token supply.

The Cannabis Company Unrivaled Brands Inc. Is Expanding

The future was yesterday but don’t worry, you still have some time to catch up. Unrivaled Brands has been in the game and has been playing their cards right with their most recent business move.

Unrivaled Brands Inc., the California-based cannabis company formed by a recent merger, sees “considerable expansion opportunity” in the U.S. West, its top executive said.

The company, created in a deal between Terra Tech Corp. and Umbrla Inc., now operates in California, Nevada and Oregon. Unrivaled estimates it will have revenue of more than $70 million in 2021 and have positive cash flow in the fourth quarter, according to a statement from the company announcing the close of the deal.

Legal cannabis sales in the U.S. are expected to reach $41.5 billion by 2025, up from $13.2 billion in 2019, according to an estimate released in late 2020 from New Frontier Data.

“We are continuing to look to expand our footprint,” Chief Executive Officer Frank Knuettel II said in an email to Bloomberg News. The multistate operator is focusing on adding brands and dispensaries in the states where it already operates. “A healthy pipeline of opportunities and discussions” are already taking place, he said.

The cannabis industry is rapidly consolidating as more U.S. states move to legalize it and sales grow. Multistate operations are an important part of the equation, since federal prohibition prevents the products from crossing state lines. Prior to the closing of the merger with Umbrla, publicly traded Terra Tech agreed to acquire SilverStreak Solutions, a direct-to-consumer cannabis firm that operates in the Sacramento, California, area.

Legal cannabis sales in the U.S. are expected to reach $41.5 billion by 2025, up from $13.2 billion in 2019, according to an estimate released in late 2020 from New Frontier Data.

Unrivaled Brands starts trading Thursday on the over-the-counter market under the ticker UNRV.

Top 2 Cannabis Stocks to Buy for Summer 2021

The marijuana boom amid the coronavirus pandemic has brought a lot of attention to the sector. Cannabis sales have been on the rise ever since marijuana was deemed an “essential item” during pandemic-related lockdowns. This not only benefited U.S. cannabis companies’ revenue and profits, but also was advantageous for companies indirectly linked to the cannabis sector. With more and more states legalizing medicinal and/or adult-use marijuana, hopes are that sales could keep soaring. The U.S. cannabis market could generate $41 billion in annual sales by 2026, according to BDSA.

Here are two cannabis stocks that are exciting buys for summer 2021. One is a pure-play cannabis company (meaning its main business is the production and sale of cannabis and cannabis-related products) that is climbing to be a top contender in the U.S. market. The other is an unconventional cannabis stock that has no direct involvement with cannabis, but is taking advantage of the marijuana boom.

Trulieve Cannabis is a rising star in the U.S. cannabis space

Florida-based Trulieve Cannabis (OTC: TCNNF) is a vertically integrated multi-state operator. Vertical integration allows the company control over its supply chain, and this has helped it grow tremendously even amid a global crisis.

The company already dominates the medical cannabis market in its home state, operating 78 dispensaries there. Florida only allows medical cannabis, and the company holds 50% of the market share in that state. But after its recent acquisition of Arizona-based Harvest Health & Recreation, the company has plans to expand, and its recent first-quarter results ended March 31 are proof of that.

Revenue grew 102% year over year to $194 million, and adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) came in at $91 million, up 87% from the year-ago period. The company also recorded a 27% year-over-year jump in net profit to $30 million for the quarter. EBITDA measures the operational performance of a company, while net income is the true earnings of a company after all the deductions are made.

Trulieve acquired Harvest Health in May in a $2.1 billion deal that is expected to be completed in the third quarter, subject to shareholder approval. This acquisition will help Trulieve make an entry into the cannabis market in Arizona, which recently legalized recreational pot. This deal will also add Pennsylvania and Maryland dispensaries to Trulieve’s national footprint. All in all, the company will have access to 126 dispensaries in 11 states and a solid presence across much of the U.S.

In 2021, Trulieve expects the combined company to bring in around $1.2 billion in revenue and $461 million in adjusted EBITDA. These strong businesses have combined their resources, capital, and innovative products, and the resulting company could soon become a cannabis powerhouse.

Innovative Industrial Properties offers an indirect entry to the cannabis sector

Marijuana remains federally illegal in the U.S., which can keep many investors from much exposure to the industry. But there’s one real estate investment trust (REIT) that offers an indirect path into the cannabis market. Marijuana’s illegal status can make it hard for U.S. cannabis companies to obtain financial capital, which restricts them from setting up large production facilities. Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE: IIPR) is a REIT that acquires properties from medical cannabis companies, then leases them back. The cannabis companies get capital, and Innovative Industrial Properties gets revenue.

In its recent first quarter (ended March 31), Innovative’s total revenue saw an exciting jump of 103% year over year to $43 million, and the company made four new acquisitions (three new properties and a land expansion at an existing property) in that time. Its net income also increased to $26 million from $12 million in the year-ago period, and adjusted funds from operations (AFFO) rose by 117% to $38 million for the quarter. Since Innovative is a REIT, AFFO is an important measure to determine how much cash is available to be paid out as dividends to shareholders, similar to what net earnings measure for a non-REIT.

And that brings me to one more advantage of owning this stock: its dividend, which at a yield of about 2.9% is nearly double the S&P 500 average. As a REIT, the company is legally bound to pay 90% of its income as dividends; its rising AFFO is proof that it does so consistently, which is at least as important as having a high yield. On June 15, the company announced a 32% year-over-year hike to its quarterly dividend, bringing the payout to $1.40 per share. This marks the 11th dividend increase for the company since it went public in 2016.

Volatility in an emerging industry is common, and the fact that it’s not directly involved with marijuana keeps Innovative Industrial Properties insulated from this, making it a good cannabis-related stock to invest in. Once the drug is federally legalized in the U.S. and cannabis companies can obtain capital from other means, Innovative could face some challenges. But for now, as statewide legalization continues ramping up, Innovative is poised to grow.

Here’s The Marijuana Stock You’ve Been Waiting For
A little-known Canadian company just unlocked what some experts think could be the key to profiting off the coming marijuana boom.

And make no mistake – it is coming.

Cannabis legalization is sweeping over North America – 15 states plus Washington, D.C., have all legalized recreational marijuana over the last few years, and full legalization came to Canada in October 2018.

And one under-the-radar Canadian company is poised to explode from this coming marijuana revolution.

Because a game-changing deal just went down between the Ontario government and this powerhouse company…and you need to hear this story today if you have even considered investing in pot stocks.
