Some view crypto as a possible solution to the cannabis industry’s banking problem of essentially forcing cannabis companies to operate outside of insured banking systems. As such, many are wondering if cryptocurrency might be the way to bypass regular banking systems without a federal bill?

The main issues cannabis tokens encounter are adoption, market capitalization and aiming. Instead of bringing new tech along with innovative proposals, these cryptos fail to confront the problem faced by the industry.

They also fall short because cannabis cryptocurrencies do not provide any innovation in their technology and are limited to a single industry, thereby narrowing their potential market outreach. A currency must be widely used and desired to be adopted by publicly traded companies.

A possible way for the industry to adopt a specific blockchain-based token could be providing cannabis manufacturers with the possibility of precisely tracking their production process from seed to sale, therefore guaranteeing customers quality control and vigilant product supervision.

As for now, unless someone comes up with a way to revolutionize the market, cannabis-specific cryptos remain impractical for the industry. Nevertheless, dispensaries would be wise to provide crypto payment methods to customers who choose to follow that financial trend.
