"Investment activity in the legal cannabis marketplace continues to accelerate, both in terms of the aggregate amount of capital being raised and in the frequency of individual tranches. According to the data from our Viridian Cannabis Deal Tracker, the flow of investment capital is beginning to focus in on certain key vertical markets in cannabis and the valuations and deal terms are starting to diverge among these verticals. The combination of New Frontier's industry data and Viridian's financial data in this report provides a very deep and comprehensive perspective on the investment opportunity in the legal cannabis industry," said Scott Greiper, Founder and President of Viridian Capital Advisors.

SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING) on June 20th announced that it has successfully closed a $1 million company friendly Convertible Promissory Note with an institutional investor. Proceeds from the investment will be used to execute on the company's previously announced BitCoin Payments solution, as part of its partnership with First BitCoin Capital (OTC: BITCF). With the new round of funding, SinglePoint management believes the company will be able to move very quickly to develop a crypto currency solution and continue acquisitions in cannabis space.

"This is great timing for SinglePoint. We have many acquisitions deals in the pipeline, and access to this capital will exponentially increase the chances of getting these done. In addition, we have many technical developments that are ready launch. We will be able to develop our solutions and really start driving sales," states Greg Lambrecht, CEO of SinglePoint.

SinglePoint currently offers many integrated business solutions. The addition of BitCoin Payments to its portfolio will help solve the banking issue in the cannabis industry and other high-risk markets. Furthermore, SinglePoint has developed and is releasing a full-scale web development and online marketing solution for dispensaries. The company will use some of this funding to launch its own online marketing system to drive more customers to SingleSeed.com. In the acquisition space, SinglePoint has already acquired several companies in the cannabis vertical, and is currently in discussions with other targets for a potential roll-up.
