AppSwarm (SWRM) Completes Acquisition of MediaPlay, Anticipates Rapid Revenue Development


  • Poised for rapid revenue development following acquisition of MediaPlay
  • Agreements in place with leading application stores to fast-track applications
  • Company had $589,000 in revenues in 2016 and was able to eliminate more than $500,000 in corporate debt

Technology development and incubation acceleration company AppSwarm, Inc. (OTC: SWRM) has announced its acquisition of MediaPlay, a multiplatform games publisher and developer (http://dtn.fm/QM3ia). The company has further announced the creation of two AppSwarm divisions.

Assets purchased as part of the acquisition include:


  • Games in-house
  • Rights to games currently in negotiations
  • Pending letters of intent
  • Pending distribution agreements
  • Work-for-hire contracts

MediaPlay has a special focus on free-to-play mobile games and is led by a core team composed of veterans of the game industry who have made successful exits in previous ventures and have held executive positions with some of the world’s largest gaming companies, such as Electronic Arts, Kabam and Activision. Collectively, the MediaPlay team is responsible for the launch of more than seven companies.

Historically, MediaPlay’s team has created organic growth by developing some of its own products, as well as through third-party acquisitions of branded games. The MediaPlay team has had tremendous ongoing success and has had its games featured by Apple and Google multiple times. The team executed a three-game development and publishing agreement with Discovery Networks in 2016 and has made subsequent deals with Valiant Entertainment and other brands.

AppSwarm anticipates rapid revenue development within the next 24 months as a result of this acquisition. MediaPlay brings an acute focus on nurtured relationships and international contacts, as well as a proven ability to bring about major corporate developments and publishing agreements.

The acquisition further enables AppSwarm to form two distinct but synergistic gaming divisions and revenue streams. The company’s current efforts will be focused on the application Incubation and Acquisition Division, which includes gaming opportunities, interactive developments and e-commerce business solutions.

Focused on partnering with app developers, AppSwarm is engaged in accelerating the development of free-to-play mobile games and fast-tracking them to the market. The company partners with game developers through joint ventures, royalty agreements, marketing partnerships and outright purchases.

AppSwarm actively reaches out to budding, entrepreneurial-minded application developers with great ideas who lack the knowledge to effectively market their products. When the company identifies an application with potential, the person or firm that created the app is approached by AppSwarm for the purposes of negotiating a stock purchase agreement, royalty agreement, joint venture, partnership or outright purchase.

AppSwarm has enviable financial resources to help market applications in the most effective ways. The company uses all forms of social marketing, along with traditional marketing, to get an app before as many eyes as possible. AppSwarm further has agreements in place with the foremost application stores, enabling the company to fast-track its applications.

In 2016, AppSwarm had revenues of $589,000, and the company was able to eliminate well over $500,000 in corporate debt. This enabled AppSwarm to commence 2017 with the momentum to complete synergistic mergers and acquisitions, such as the acquisition of MediaPlay.

SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) Set to Benefit from Growth in Bitcoin and Cannabis Markets


  • Payment solutions for cannabis industry
  • Operator of cryptocurrency exchange
  • Bitcoin payment solutions for retailers

In its latest initiatives, SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING) is showing that innovation, like politics, makes strange bedfellows. This diversified holding company specializing in acquisitions of small to mid-sized companies, with an emphasis on new technologies, is planning a marriage of cannabis and cryptocurrencies, both of which are rapidly growing opportunities. The company is developing a payment processing solution utilizing cryptocurrencies that is likely to find early application in the cannabis industry. Using its recently acquired $Weed and other cryptocurrencies, SinglePoint wants to help the cannabis industry solve its payment problems.

Although licensed by their state authorities, medical marijuana dispensaries and other cannabis retailers find it difficult to maintain merchant banking accounts at federally regulated financial institutions. The latter, fearful of violating the Controlled Substances Act, will typically cease operating an account if they discover it is associated with a business that ‘touches the plant’. Consequently, cannabis businesses are forced to deal in cash and face the attendant risk of burglaries and holdups. Additionally, customers cannot use their debit and credit cards, and all this because the regular financial system is federally regulated.

Cryptocurrencies, however, are not, and so they offer a ready-made solution to payment problems confronting high risk industries. The best known of these is undoubtedly bitcoin, the fortunes of which continue to improve, according to a recent MarketWatch report (http://dtn.fm/btcW9). Its authors discuss the high positive correlation between bitcoin prices and Google search trends for the word ‘bitcoin’, dubbed ‘a virtuous Satoshi cycle’ by Chris Burniske, who first observed it. Burniske is a bitcoin expert, previously a blockchain analyst at ARK Invest. Recent bitcoin prices have been stratospheric, with the price of a single bitcoin hitting a record high of $4,483.55 recently. Consumers who opt for a cryptocurrency wallet (part of the SinglePoint payment solution) will not only increase their payment options but their holdings of an asset that just keeps climbing in value.

SinglePoint has been working on a cryptocurrency solution for some time. Early in August, the company announced its purchase of the $Weed cryptocurrency from joint venture partner First Bitcoin Capital (OTC: BITCF). Known also as WeedCoin, the digital currency is currently listed on three exchanges, and SinglePoint intends to list and market the currency on more exchanges in the future. The recent initial coin offering (ICO) launch for the $Weed cryptocurrency resulted in an impressive market cap of close to $60 million.

In addition, SinglePoint intends to market its $Weed wallet to cannabis customers before they even set foot in the store. If successful, these efforts will address one of the largest barriers relating to the use of cryptocurrency at cannabis retail stores, i.e., consumers without a wallet who want to make a purchase. SinglePoint believes that, with proper execution, users of its $Weed cryptocurrency could enjoy a similar experience to the one offered to users of Starbucks’ mobile payment system, with payments completed through a simple scan of a barcode on the user’s smartphone or tablet.

Lexaria Bioscience’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP) Revolutionary Process Creates Superior Cannabinoid Edibles


  • Disruptive, patented technology is set to revolutionize the edible cannabis market
  • Company has patent applications in 45 countries, including 18 applications in the U.S.
  • Technology is patent-protected for CBD and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, with patents pending for THC, other psychoactive cannabinoids, NSAIDs, nicotine and other molecules

A common complaint among the consumers of cannabis edibles is an unpleasant taste that can often be detected, but that unpleasant taste and other inadequacies of cannabis edibles are being overcome thanks to the incredible innovations of Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQB: LXRP).

Lexaria is literally bringing new flavor to the marijuana industry with its disruptive process, which masks the unpleasant taste associated with cannabis. Lexaria’s lipophilic enhancement technology also changes the way cannabinoids enter the body; substantially speeds up the time frame in which tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) effects can be felt after consuming a cannabinoid edible; and increases bio-absorption by up to 10 times, making the absorption from cannabis edibles equal to the absorption from inhaled cannabis.

Because cannabinoids are absorbed poorly by the gastrointestinal tract, many cannabis users turn to other administration routes, like smoking, for greater effectiveness. Lexaria’s proprietary technology for better delivery of bioactive compounds solves the problem of poor absorption, increasing the bio-absorption of cannabis edibles by between five and tenfold. The effects of the THC from an edible product created using Lexaria’s patented process are also felt much more quickly—taking effect within 15-20 minutes as opposed to one to two hours.

The possibilities enabled by Lexaria’s technology are multifold and exciting. For instance, excessive amounts of sugar have previously had to be included in cannabis edibles to mask the unwanted taste, but because Lexaria’s technology eliminates that undesirable flavor, zero-sugar formats are now possible for cannabinoid edibles.

Lexaria’s process involves taking the healthy cocktail of molecules found in the company’s organically sourced hemp and infusing those molecules inside the molecules of other ingredients. Lexaria works with lipids, because the endocannabinoid system in the human body is lipid-based. The company has found its method to be a more efficient means of delivering hemp oil ingredients to the body, making a small amount of hemp seed oil inside a Lexaria product equal to a great deal of hemp oil delivered via a product that wasn’t created using the company’s revolutionary technology.

Lexaria’s pioneering technology is patent-protected for cannabidiol (CBD) and all other non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Patents are further pending for THC and other psychoactive cannabinoids, along with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nicotine and other molecules. In the United States, 18 patent applications have been filed, and international and national patent filings have been made in 44 other countries.

ABcann Global Corporation’s (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) New Investment a Testament to the Company’s Future


  • One of first licensed medical cannabis producers in Canada
  • $15 million equity investment starts construction of new 50,000 square foot facility
  • Production to quadruple in booming market

Legal since 2001, medical cannabis operations in Canada changed dramatically about a year ago when the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) went into effect. Health Canada now strictly oversees licensing, monitoring and compliance of commercial medical cannabis producers. Health Canada conducts thorough reviews of applications to ensure compliance with the regulations and works closely with producers once licensed to monitor and ensure compliance with such strictures as personnel security measures, good production practices, packaging, shipping, record keeping and import and export requirements. Licenses are difficult to acquire, and frequent inspections hold producers to stringent standards.

One of the very first licensed producers and a pioneer in Canadian medical cannabis, ABcann Global Corporation (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) has always held to meticulous specifications in the production of its pharmaceutical grade, plant-based medicines. Maintaining standards designed to exceed government requirements, ABcann grows plants only in small batches in order to create controllable, consistent and predictable yields. The plants are nurtured in controlled environmental chambers to deliver dependable results with each harvest. Chemical and pesticide free, ABcann produces medical cannabis that effectuates the same medical response with every use.

Medical cannabis business is booming in Canada. The number of medical marijuana patients continues to grow rapidly, increasing nearly 30 percent in the first quarter of this year, while sales of medical cannabis increased over 24 percent from last year. The growth trajectory shows no signs of slowing, and, given the licensing process and stringent inspections, licensed producers already in production are well positioned to reap substantial rewards.

Given ABcann’s underlying value, the recent announcement by Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. (TSX.V: CBW) comes as little surprise. In a July 28th press release, Cannabis Wheaton, which invests in and supports a wide range of cannabis cultivation companies, announced Exchange approval for its purchase of $15 million of common shares of ABcann Global at $2.25 per share. This initial investment is part of a larger phased investment for the construction of an additional 50,000 square feet of pure cultivation space next to ABcann’s current 14,000 square foot cannabis cultivation facility in Ontario, Canada.

With a market capitalization around $82 million, ABcann presents great value for Cannabis Wheaton. Other Canadian licensed producers carry much higher market valuations. Emblem Corp., with nearly the same sized facility as ABcann, trades around the two dollar mark and carries a $170+ million market cap. Supreme Pharmaceuticals has a $250 million cap, and Hydropothecary Corporation maintains a $150 million cap, even after a voluntary stop-sale / stop-shipment when evidence of unapproved fungicide was found in its products. Cannabis Wheaton’s minority stake in ABcann looks to be a steal.

ABcann has already invested over $20 million in ongoing operations and international expansion plans. The company currently owns and operates a 14,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. It also owns an adjoining 50 acres of land that’s slated for construction of the new 50,000 square foot production facility financed by Cannabis Wheaton’s equity investment. The additional cultivation space at the new facility is anticipated to provide Cannabis Wheaton with an estimated eight million grams of cannabis per year, while its equity position in ABcann should pay off handsomely as well.

ABcann’s proprietary cultivation methods already produce high quality cannabis with industry leading yields, and this latest announcement is a testament to ABcann’s future. The Canadian government recently stated that it will press ahead in 2017 with plans to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use. That market is expected to be worth $5 billion a year by 2020, according to leading industry analysts. This latest investment in ABcann appears both well timed and financially prescient.
