The Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
The Company signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Bitmain Technologies Limited. This is to establish a JV that will center on opportunities in the Bitcoin space in North America.

Moreover, MGT Capital Investments entered into a consulting agreement with Future Tense Secure Systems, Inc. Future Tense is a technology incubator with investments in other applications requiring privacy, such as file sharing and chat.
This past January, MGT Capital Investments announced the end of its business relationship with cybersecurity pioneer Mr. John McAfee. Since August of 2017, Mr. McAfee had served as Chief Cybersecurity Visionary of MGT, guiding the development of its cybersecurity business, including Sentinel and the privacy phone.
Moreover, in March, MGT announced that it ended its cybersecurity operations by selling the Sentinel product line to a new entity created by the unit's management team, and ending development of the privacy phone. The Sentinel assets sold for $60,000 in cash and a $1.0 million promissory note, convertible into a 20 percent equity interest of the buyer.
Company Management referred to the high level of investment and cash burn associated with cybersecurity for its decision to exit Sentinel. MGT Capital Investments commenced Bitcoin Mining in September of 2016 in Washington State.
These facilities are still currently mining. In Q1 2018, MGT started a transition of its mining assets from Washington State to Northern Sweden. The Company owns and operates Bitmain Antminer S9 Bitcoin mining rigs and graphics processing unit-based Ethereum miners.

GT Biopharma, Inc. (GTBP)
Stockopedia, Insider Financial, InvestorsHub, Stockhouse, and OTC Markets reported on GT Biopharma, Inc. (GTBP), and we highlight the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
GT Biopharma, Inc. focuses on innovative drugs for the treatment of cancer and CNS diseases (Neurology and Pain), along with other unmet medical needs. The Company’s lead oncology drug candidate is OXS-1550 (DT2219ARL). It owns the worldwide rights to commercialize OXS-1550. Its present CNS pipeline products include treatment for neuropathic pain, the symptoms of myasthenia gravis, as well as motion sickness.
A biotechnology company, GT Biopharma is based in Tampa, Florida. GT Biopharma completed its merger with GTP (Georgetown Translational Pharmaceuticals, Inc.). This merger brought in new management and a class of close-to-market Central Nervous System (CNS) products to GT Biopharma.
The Company is targeting multiple myeloma, triple-negative breast cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and more. It is doing so with highly potent biopharmaceutical drugs designed for targeted therapy.
GT Biopharma’s OXS-1550 is an ADC (Antibody Drug Conjugate) drug. What makes OXS-1550 (DT2219ARL) different from other treatments, such as chemotherapy, is that the design of it is to specifically target and kill cancer cells while reducing damage to normal tissues.
OXS-1550 is a bispecific scFv recombinant fusion protein-drug conjugate. OXS-1550 has demonstrated success in early human clinical trials in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphoma or leukemia.
OXS-1550 targets cancer cells expressing the CD19 receptor or the CD22 receptor or both receptors. When OXS-1550 binds to cancer cells, the cancer cells internalize the drug and are killed due to the action of cytotoxic payload.
The Company’s OXS-3550 TriKE technology was developed by researchers at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center. This targeted immunotherapy directs immune cells to kill cancer cells while decreasing drug-related toxicity.
GT Biopharma’s CNS platform centers on acquiring or discovering and patenting late-stage, de-risked, and close-to-market improved treatments for CNS diseases. It also centers on guiding the products through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval process to the NDA.
Earlier this month, GT Biopharma announced that it completed dosing in its Phase 1 clinical trial for GTP-004. This is the Company’s promising treatment for the symptoms of myasthenia gravis. Myasthenia gravis is a rare autoimmune muscle disease. It is caused by antibodies that attack certain components of muscles leading to varying degrees of weakness and fatigue.
The results provide evidence that GTP-004 enables the safe and well-tolerated administration of doses of pyridostigmine. The goal of the Phase 1 clinical trial is to demonstrate that GI side effects are safely reduced with GTP-004.
GTP-004 combines pyridostigmine with ondansetron, designed to soothe the gastro-intestinal (GI) side effects of pyridostigmine alone, providing the potential for a fully effective dose of pyridostigmine to be safely used. Based on the data, and discussions with key opinion leaders, GT Biopharma expects to be in a position to begin a Phase 2 clinical trial in patients in the second half of this year.
GT Biopharma, Inc. (GTBP), closed Monday's trading session at $1.41, up 12.80%, on 91,578 volume with 170 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 82,260 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.19/$36.90..

ProtoKinetix, Inc. (PKTX)
SmallCapVoice, OTCReporter, Stock Rich, PennyStockAce, Stockpalooza, SuperBirdStocks, WallStAlerts, Willy Wizard, Pick Alerts, Penny stock Profitz, AllPennyStocks, Penny Invest, CoolPennyStocks, TopPennyStockMovers, 777 Stocks, Breaking Bulls, InsideBulls, Stock Market News Alert, HotOTC, StockEgg, and Round Up the Bulls reported previously on ProtoKinetix, Inc. (PKTX), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
ProtoKinetix, Inc. is a molecular biotechnology company headquartered in Marietta, Ohio. The Company has developed and patented a family of hyper stable, potent glycopeptides (Anti-Aging GlycoPeptide - AAGP™) that enhance engraftment and protection of transplanted cells used in regenerative medicine.
Due to the anti-inflammatory effect of AAGP™ molecules, ProtoKinetix is currently targeting the direct treatment of diseases that have a significant inflammatory component. The Company’s molecule, AAGP™, is an antifreeze glycopeptide. It imitates a naturally occurring glycoprotein found in Arctic fish.
ProtoKinetix’s AAGP™ molecule is helping to substantially improve the efficacy of Cell Transplant Treatments for diabetes. The Company has broad patent protection for its portfolio of anti-aging glycopeptides.
Its anti-aging glycopeptide, trademarked AAGP™, is a small (580.96 Daltons), stable, synthetic replica of the larger (>2,600 Daltons), less stable AFGP, which has been found to have protective properties in nature.
The small size of AAGP™ allows it to penetrate cells. It allows it to pass through cell and capillary junctions in vivo. Furthermore, its bioactivity at a range of pHs (5.3-10.3) and temperatures (-196°C to 22°C) and efficiency at concentrations (1mg/ml) is well under its toxic dose (50mg/ml). This makes it a candidate to enter the next stages of translational research.
ProtoKinetix and Proactive Immune Sciences entered into a joint research collaboration. The aim of the research is to test the effect of the patented anti-aging glycopeptide AAGP™ on the immune cell cryopreservation protocols used by Proactive Immune Sciences. Proactive Immune Sciences stores (banks) immune cells, while people are healthy. This is for them to use later in life should they contract cancer or have other immune system related diseases.
ProtoKinetix earlier provided a scientific update on immune cell banking and functions relevant to immunotherapy using AAGP™ in collaboration with Proactive Immune Sciences. In 2017, Proactive began a research program, which used an anti-aging glycopeptide (AAGP™) produced by ProtoKinetix that, among other uses, has shown the potential to benefit a variety of cells during cryopreservation.
In January 2018, ProtoKinetix announced that it entered into a research agreement with The University of British Columbia (UBC), under the direction of principal investigator Dr. Kelly McNagny, Professor, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Medical Genetics. The research agreement is to test and establish the effect of AAGP™ on monoclonal antibody production and bone marrow recovery.
The University of British Columbia’s Antibody Lab will test whether AAGP™ enhances the production of monoclonal antibodies from cell lines. Additionally, UBC will test whether AAGP™ enhances the survival/efficacy of engraftment of hematopoietic stem cells.
ProtoKinetix, Inc. (PKTX), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0489, even for the day, on 2,600 volume with 2 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 45,533 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.03/$0.0855.

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF)
Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF) this morning announced that it has found a 58+ square kilometer lithium brine target area at its Coipasa project in Chile through transient electromagnetic surveys. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/0P46v.
Lithium Chile Inc. (TSX.V: LITH) (OTC: LTMCF), headquartered in Canada, is advancing one of the largest lithium-rich exploration portfolios in Chile consisting of more than 148,000 hectares covering sections of 13 salars or mineral salt flats and one laguna complex. The company’s wholly owned premier properties include 66 square kilometers on the Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest mineral salt flat which hosts the world’s highest concentration of lithium brine production and is currently the source of about 35 percent of the world’s lithium production. Lithium Chile also owns a significant copper/gold/silver property portfolio consisting of 28,184 hectares over six different properties.
Lithium Chile’s portfolio in the heart of Chile’s lithium-rich salars includes Salar de Coipasa, Salar de Helados, Salar de Atacama, Salar de Turi Salar de Ollague and Salar de Talar. Surface and near surface salt and brine sampling programs on all properties has been completed. To date, samples of high-grade, near-surface lithium brines at each of these projects are showing excellent chemistry of lithium to potassium and lithium to magnesium ratios. Good chemistry is important as it reduces your overall cost of production. Recent geophysical surveys including T.E.M have been completed on 5 of 6 priority targets and data collected to date has been extremely encouraging.
Lithium Chile has identified multiple high-priority brine target areas at its Atacama and Ollague lithium project areas. These areas display the same geophysical characteristics as the lithium-rich aquifers at Salar de Atacama, home to the world’s largest and highest-grade lithium brine producers. Spanning an area of 1,200 square miles, Salar de Atacama is the world’s third largest salt flat behind Salinas Grandes in Argentina and El Salar de Uyuni in neighboring Bolivia. Exploration drilling and resource definition drilling for these target areas are planned for 2018.
“We are delighted with the discovery of such impressive drill target areas at Atacama and Ollague. The results also follow the recent discovery of a 60km2 target area at another of our top Chilean projects – Helados – where we hope to drill in the second quarter of 2018,” stated President and CEO Steve Cochrane. “We have an aggressive multi-project drill program planned for this year, which includes all three of these exciting projects and we look forward to sharing drill results as they come through.”
Global demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to surpass US$53 billion by 2024 as governments around the world aggressively seek to ban gas-powered vehicles and major automakers invest billions in new technology and electric vehicles powered by lithium-ion batteries. Chile’s mining-friendly jurisdiction offers Lithium Chile a clear, streamlined permitting process that significantly lowers the cost of lithium production to around $1,800/ton as compared to Australia’s $5,000/ton.
Lithium Chile is led by an experienced team with strong Chilean connections. Cochrane’s 36 years of investment industry experience have primarily been focused on the mining sector. During this time, he raised more than US$500 million for a variety of small cap public companies in various businesses and industry sectors including mining.
Terry Walker, P.Geol., vice president of exploration and chief geologist, is a highly experienced geologist. He has spent over 25 years in Chile’s mining industry and is well connected throughout the sector. Walker is co-founder of GeoServicios Piedra Dorada, an exploration and development services company focused on Latin America. He is a Qualified Person for the North American and Australian stock exchanges.
Lithium Chile is well funded and driven by a top-tier team with more than 100 years of combined experience in financing, mining exploration and development in the natural resources sector.
Lithium Chile Inc. (LTMCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.6772, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,983 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.6599/$0.9021.

Rising medical cannabis products and services provider Sunniva Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) issued a report on April 30 detailing its financial results from fiscal year 2017 (http://cnw.fm/t48SZ).
Sunniva, Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) is a vertically integrated medical cannabis company operating in the world’s two largest cannabis markets – Canada and California – committed to delivering safe, consistent, high-quality products and services.

Sunniva’s vision is to become the lowest cost, highest quality cannabis producer in the markets it serves by building large scale purpose-built cGMP-compliant greenhouses, offering best quality assurance with cannabis products free from pesticides, providing better patient and doctor access to cannabis education, and sourcing better therapeutic delivery devices.
The company is establishing sophisticated distribution channels, including Sunniva’s ownership of Natural Health Services cannabis clinics in Canada with over 95,000 active patients, to purchase the significant quantities of high quality Sunniva-branded and Sunniva private-labeled cannabis products.
Sunniva is an ancient English name which means, “Gift of the Sun.” Sunniva’s team of horticulturists, scientists and engineers is helping to set best practices for the industry, believing that sun-grown, solar-powered cultivation is the most sustainable and cost-effective way to grow high-quality, premium cannabis.

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY)
Zenergy Brands (OTCQB: ZNGY) recently unveiled a new associate program which was created to support sales of the company’s full suite of products and services. To view the full press article, visit: http://nnw.fm/4iocR. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how ZNGY is a pioneering energy and technology company that operates within the smart energy, conservation and utilities industries, delivering retail energy, energy conservation, smart controls and efficiency-based products and services that are tailored to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.
Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.
The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.
A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.
Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.
Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.
“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.
On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF)
Cobalt exploration and development company First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF), together with US Cobalt Inc. (TSX-V: USCO) (OTCQB: USCFF), this morning announced that two independent proxy advisory firms, Institutional Shareholder Services and Glass, Lewis & Co., have recommend that US Cobalt shareholders vote "FOR" the previously announced acquisition by First Cobalt. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/1TebU.
First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQB: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.
First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.
First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.
First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.
The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.
First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.
First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.5854, off by 2.43%, on 140,507 volume with 74 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 144,473 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.3148/$1.3041.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA)
Marijuana Company of America (OTC: MCOA), through its hempSMART™ subsidiary, is dedicated to the scientific development of hemp-derived CBD-based nutritional products. To view the full article, visit: http://cnw.fm/bDG3u.
Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.
The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.
The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.
The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The Company’s business model includes producing a diverse portfolio of synergistic business segments that provide value to its shareholders. Its vertically integrated business model and distribution platforms are positioned to capture market share by developing recognizable and valuable brands.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD)
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (the “Company” or “TGOD”) is pleased to announce the addition of several key executives including CFO, General Counsel, VP of Sales, VP of Marketing, VP of Operations, and Regional Sales Manager for Ontario and Western Canada.
The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).
Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.
TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.
Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.
Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.
The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.
The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.
TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.
Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.
Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.
TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH)
Through a joint business agreement with DevLex Ltd., Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (OTC: CSRH) announced on April 2, 2018, that it aims to release its first predictive data analytics mobile offering, dedicated to the game of cricket, during the second quarter of 2018 (http://nnw.fm/S0onj).
Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) is a software development and mobile solutions company focused on the delivery of digital offerings to mobile devices. The company provides mobile offerings, delivery of mobile content, mobile payments solutions and products through a mix of direct offerings, partnerships, license agreements and joint venture arrangements. A multi-year transition from a transaction management company focused on transaction processing solutions and products for the payment processing and financial transaction markets to multiple business verticals deepens the company’s commitment to deliver innovating solutions to end users who are using smart handset devices in radical new ways.
Consorteum Holdings, utilizing its Universal Mobile Interface™ (“UMI”) solution, offers opportunities in numerous markets with its capacity to support fully regulated, regionally compliant financial and social transactions via web and mobile. The company’s UMI technology has the capacity to provide solutions in FinTech, data analytics, secure payment processing, compliance lead transaction management and various digital social event sectors. The UMI platform allows cross operating system development to support all mobile devices while addressing the complex and highly regulated needs of the mobile FinTech industry.
Led by the development team at Consorteum’s wholly owned subsidiary 359 Mobile Inc., the Company has created an end-to-end FinTech solution utilizing the company’s UMI technology platform. Current mobile application and transaction solutions are plagued by poor experiences. Because UMI’s technology platform is designed to work across innovative payment, experience and product solutions, 359 Mobile believes there are both direct and partnership opportunities for the 359 Mobile UMI solution.
Consorteum’s primary sales and marketing strategy is focused on enabling and delivering solutions to the global mobile FinTech market with an emphasis initially on mobile gaming. The trend towards increased mobile gambling supports the need for a mobile platform such as the UMI to meet existing and new compliance regulations for the online gambling industry. The online gambling market is projected to double to nearly $1 trillion by 2021, according to a study by Juniper Research, with the majority of growth in this sector attributed to mobile devices. Consorteum’s management team believes there are fresh opportunities in this sector such as Mobile Marketing Services providing one-to-one marketing experiences for consumers; offering real-time services to Mobile Sports Book operators; and providing fixed odds betting solutions as well as social-based transactional solutions.
Consorteum’s management team includes Chairman and CEO Craig A. Fielding, a co-founder of the company with extensive experience in technology, programming and large system building; and Chief Operating Officer Patrick Shuster, who has over 25 years of business experience in sales, engineering, operations and marketing for the telecommunications industry. They are joined by John Osborne, SVP of Technology of ThreeFiftyNine Inc., an innovator in embedded systems hardware and software design; Patrick Doran, SVP of business development and marketing with over 30 years of diversified experience in major corporations as well as early stage companies; and Glenn Charlesworth, VP of Accounting, a seasoned executive with a solid track record in financial reporting, strategic planning, general management and operations, finance, start-up situations, and cash flow challenged operations.
Consorteum Holdings is committed to bridging the mobile divide by providing mobile connectivity, secure transactional processing and social connectivity solutions for both cloud and hosted based offerings in multiple business sectors.
Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH), closed the day's trading session at $0.0016, off by 17.95%, on 2,676,090 volume with 30 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 9,476,096 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0005/$0.0085.

PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H)
Health sciences company PreveCeutical Medical (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H) this morning announced that it has signed a non-disclosure agreement ("NDA") with an internationally known drug delivery device manufacturer. To view the full press release, visit: http://cnw.fm/B3b3F.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE:18H), headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a health sciences company dedicated to researching and developing innovative options for preventive and curative therapies utilizing organic and Nature Identical™ products. The company is strategically staking out select positions in the medically acute areas of diabetes and obesity, pain management, neurological disorders and cancer.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. had its beginnings in 2009 when Stephen Van Deventer, a seasoned businessman and venture capitalist, and Kimberly Van Deventer, a successful entrepreneur, met and formed a business partnership. The duo created Cornerstone Global Partners, a venture capital and business development company, and became involved in numerous ventures including building companies such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. Taking their interest in the health and wellness market further, the pair began researching how nature and science can work together to benefit health-conscious consumers. Coining and trademarking the word “PreveCeutical” – a combination of the words “preventive” and “pharmaceutical” – was a precursor to the company’s formation and incorporation in October 2015.
The company’s first product was developed in the Dominican Republic and is now marketed and distributed worldwide by PreveCeutical. It is a Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom product sold under the trade name CELLB9®. This product is an oral dilute solution infused with select peptides sourced exclusively from the blue scorpion (Rhopalurus princeps) found only in Caribbean nations. The active potentiated ingredients in CELLB9, which have been used in over 40 countries for over a decade, appear to support health at a deep, cellular level. PreveCeutical’s research team is using proprietary chemistry to generate Nature Identical™ peptides derived from natural compounds found in Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom with the goal of eventually treating, regulating and preventing cancer progression. Peptides are also being used to target an array of disease indications including metabolic disorders, pain management, cancers, cardiovascular and infectious diseases.
PreveCeutical is developing the first nose-to-brain delivery system of cannabinoids (CBDs) with a novel process that prepares insoluble drug-containing nano-micelles and successfully incorporating them into a proprietary sol-gels application, essentially creating a targeted drug delivery vehicle. Intended for use via a nasal spray, this unique formulation rapidly gels upon contact with mucosal tissue, which paves the way for direct nose-to-brain delivery. This novel application eliminates first pass metabolism (stomach, intestines, liver), potentially improving bioavailability and delivering extended time release formulations that may alleviate side effects of higher dosage therapeutics. This CBD-based patented formula is projected to be deployed in selected markets with licensed medical marijuana companies within 18 months.
PreveCeutical is working with four leading Australian research centers to develop a curative therapy for diabetes and obesity. This four-year program involves engineering a novel approach that selectively targets the gene that encodes for the protein PTP-1B, which is implicated and over-expressed in both type-2 diabetes and obesity. PreveCeutical’s gene-silencing technology would effectively “turn off” the genetic signal which leads to the over-production of this key protein molecule, bringing it back down to safe, normalized levels, and prevent the body from storing excessive fat. Diabetes kills one person every six seconds, with more than $800 billion spent globally on the disease.
Another exciting joint venture, established with Sports 1 Marketing, will focus on the therapeutic potential in the peptides and proteins connected to the Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom to potentially treat mild brain injury concussions. Developing a therapeutic product geared towards athletes who suffer from concussions could help alleviate suffering experienced by those who are affected by head trauma.
PreveCeutical Medical’s science and research team is led by Dr. Harendra (Harry) Parekh, Ph.D., who is based at the University of Queensland’s (UQ) Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (PACE), and Dr. Makarand Jawadekar, Ph.D., whose 28 years of R&D experience with Pfizer Inc., is applicable in his role as chief science officer. Research collaborators include Dr. Rakesh Veedu, an emerging expert internationally in the field of molecular medicine, and Professor Grant Ramm, who is currently head of a leading medical research institute located in Brisbane, Australia.
PreveCeutical Medical is partnering with leading industry experts and companies in its quest to be a leader in the preventive health sciences sector. Its Research and Development partnership with UniQuest, the main commercialization company for the University of Queensland, provides PreveCeutical with the rights to all intellectual property arising from projects created under the agreement. PreveCeutical Medical Inc.’s management team brings an extensive portfolio of research experience, product development, deep corporate strategy and capital markets leadership to the company’s core.
PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (PRVCF), closed the day's trading session at $0.215, off by 25.50%, on 28,220 volume with 8 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 21,701 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.01/$0.80.

Epazz, Inc. (EPAZ)
Epazz, Inc. (EPAZ) is a leading provider of blockchain cryptocurrency mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions that specializes in providing customized web applications to the corporate world, higher education institutions and the public sector. The company’s strategic expansion into the investment fintech software space can be seen in the recent acquisition of the android app CryptoFolio, which securely tracks and manages Bitcoin and Altcoin portfolios. Epazz, Inc., which acquired the software rights, source code and user base of CryptoFolio, plans to add additional cryptocurrencies and languages to the app, along with an iOS version to attract more users.
Epazz also offers ZenaPay Bitcoin wallet, which has been downloaded more than 10,000 times since its launch on the Play Store. A subsidiary of Epazz, ZenaPay is a financial technology company that offers a unique, secure and reliable Bitcoin payment app, allowing consumers to acquire Bitcoin at the point-of-sale. The consumer can then use this digital currency to make a purchase with ease. The CryptoFolio business model provides free features to attract users and then allows users to purchase additional features from $1.99 to $5.99 each. CryptoFolio is a great add-on app for ZenaPay, and future versions of CryptoFolio will include an option to download ZenaPay.
“We are starting 2018 with ZenaPay on both major mobile apps’ platforms,” said Shaun Passley, PhD, CEO and founder of Epazz. “We are in the processing of developing new blockchain technology which will introduce an additional source of revenue streams for our company.”
Epazz technology makes it easy to convert legacy systems into cloud business process software, for which the company then charges an annual subscription fee. Epazz has acquired 11 software companies that have converted or are in the process of converting their legacy software products to cloud software using Epazz technology. Epazz then markets the new cloud-based solutions to new and existing customers.
Epazz’s unique BoxesOS™ applications can create virtual communities for enhanced communication, provide information and content for decision-making, and create a secure marketplace for any type of commerce. Epazz has also filed a provisional patent for its new blockchain smart legal contract technology that reduces fraud in business transactional contracts. The technology allows for a transactional contract to become a living contract that is tracked and traced; it also verifies that a section of terms within a contract are followed and that all parties of an agreement obey the terms of the contract.
“Blockchain-based technology is the future of the Internet,” Passley said. “Epazz will add blockchain technology to all of our products in the coming months using our blockchain cloud platform, BoxesOS. The company has been working with customers to understand the best uses of blockchain, and we are excited about filing the first of many blockchain patents, with many more to come.
Epazz, Inc. (EPAZ), closed the day's trading session at $0.0648, up 2.05%, on 75,902 volume with 19 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 172,326 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0045/$0.52.
