This partnership supercharges our ability to gather a vast array of data we will utilize, and commercialize, through AI outputs,” stated Mr. Brad Moore, GCAC’s CEO. “This joint offering will provide a crypto-based financing mechanism for expanding CMTREX listed companies and an integrated market platform where those same investors can purchase cannabis products & solutions, such as the Inteligenta watch, using a dedicated Citizen Green digital coin. Not only there will be revenues from user fees and transactional commissions but a quicker path to our goals of capturing consumer data.”
