RocketFuel (OTC: RKFL) (“RocketFuel” or the “Company”), a global provider of one-click online payment options using Bitcoin and 50+ other cryptocurrencies, today announced that it will be making its payment solution available to be used by licensed cannabis dispensaries and merchants. Integrating RocketFuel into the merchant’s payment checkout will ensure that, unlike the typical cash transactions which come with security and logistical problems, merchants can accept crypto payments from users who have cryptocurrencies in a private wallet or in certain crypto exchange accounts. This service will even cover online delivery orders if they fall under permissible local regulations. RocketFuel will be compliant with FinCEN guidance on providing financial services to the cannabis industry.
Due to laws at the Federal level restricting the presence of banks within the cannabis sector, merchants and businesses have long struggled to offer convenient payment mechanisms to their shoppers – many of whom are used to paying online but often can’t when it’s a cannabis store. With RocketFuel’s easy one-click payment interface, shoppers will no longer have to resort to creating cannabis-specific debit cards or travel to shops to pay in cash; cannabis purchases from licensed dispensaries can be done with a mobile phone using the RocketFuel API. This will greatly benefit merchants who can finally take advantage of the ease of online crypto payments and generate additional revenue channels while paying low transaction fees on a completely secure and efficient interface.
“RocketFuel’s payment solutions are a game-changer for the cannabis industry which has long been denied access to traditional banking facilities like opening businesses accounts and having access to credit/debit card facilities. The growth of cryptocurrencies however has leveled the playing field for the industry and has given the control of transactions to merchants who no longer have to depend on banks for handling their financial transactions,” said Peter Jensen, CEO of RocketFuel.
