Blockchain Startup to Solve Cannabis Market Problems 

From this article you will learn how blockchain startup can solve the main cannabis market problems 
08 February 2018   516

Marijuana’s status as a Schedule 1 drug means state marijuana operations are federally regulated as illegal enterprises. Despite the obstacles, legal marijuana has managed to go mainstream on a state-by-state basis, transforming the way Americans view and use cannabis.

The main problem with the marijuana industry boils down to a states' rights issue. While numerous states have legalized marijuana, either for medical or recreational use, the drug remains illegal at the federal level, leaving many companies vulnerable to investigations.

Federal regulation on the legality of transport, sale, and distribution of cannabis creates major obstacles for companies to establish, manage and grow their business. The lack of a fast, reliable and readily available payment method contributes to the multitude of issues businesses face, making it difficult to attract and retain customers.

Centra Tech Inc. Co-Founder accused With Fraud by SEC

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has charged Centra Tech Inc. co-founder, Raymond Trapani with ICO fraud  
25 April 2018   56

The charge came as the result of the SEC’s investigations into Centra’s controversial $32 million USD initial coin offering (ICO). Mr. Trapani is the third and final Centra co-founder to be accused for taking part in the ICO.

Raymond Trapani, a co-founder of Centra Tech Inc., has been charged by the SEC for his participation in “a fraudulent scheme connected with Centra’s 2017 ICO.” In 2017 Centra made headlines after enlisting celebrity approval from Floyd Mayweather and DJ Khaled. Two other firm`s co-founders, Sohrab “Sam” Sharma and Robert Farkas, were charged by officials earlier this month for their engagement  in the distribution of “CTR Tokens” to investors.

A changed variant of the SEC’s complaint demands that Trapani was the “mastermind of Centra’s fraudulent ICO,” with an SEC press release alleging that “Centra [was] marketed with claims about nonexistent business relationships with major credit card companies, fictional executive bios, and misrepresentations about the viability of the company’s core financial services products.” The SEC accuses Mr. Trapani and Mr. Sharma of “manipulat[ing] trading in the CTR Tokens to generate interest in the company and prop up the price of the tokens.”

We allege that the Centra co-founders went to great lengths to create the false impression that they had developed a viable, cutting-edge technology.

The SEC has disclosed a text mail sent to Mr. Farkas and Mr. Trapani from Mr Sharma in what Mr. Sharma said to his colleagues “[w]e gotta get that s[***] removed everywhere and blame freelancers lol.” Mr. Trapani also demanded that Mr. Sharma “cook [him] up” a fraudulent document whilst the company was seeking to get CTR tokens listed on exchanges under misleading pretexts. Mr. Sharma replied to the request with “Don’t text me that s[***] lol. Delete.”

At the same time, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has also looked for criminal accusations against Trapani. The SEC has revealed that text messages  jointly used between Centra’s co-founders discovered the scam purposes of the defendants.
