About BLOK Technologies Inc.
BLOK Technologies Inc. is a public company that invests in and develops emerging companies in the blockchain technology sector. The Company has received conditional approval on its first acquisition. The Company’s approach is to provide capital, technology and management expertise to the companies it develops, starting in the cannabis supply chain management sector. The Company’s process is to identify early-stage technologies with potential to disrupt and innovate within their industry and provide them with the necessary capital, resources and expertise to ensure the success of their projects.
Greenstream is engaged in the development of a blockchain-enabled supply chain management platform for the legalized cannabis industry. The federal government has laid out a roadmap to have cannabis legalized nationwide by July 2018. With this in mind, Greenstream is in the process of developing a technology architecture to address the supply management needs for this new regulatory environment, providing the industry the ability to manage from ‘seed to sale’. The Greenstream architecture calls for three layers of development including: smart contract processing, POS and ID database integrations and integration with existing inventory management and enterprise management platforms. When fully deployed, there will be multiple stakeholders for the Greenstream platform, including: licensed producers, distributors, government regulators, dispensaries, and software providers.
