World News: . []


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (TSX-V: DMGI) (DMGGF:OTC US) (FRANKFURT:6AX) (“” or the “”), a diversified blockchain and technology company, is pleased to unveil the Wazabi Project.

As a diversified blockchain technology company, it was important for DMG to pursue enterprise platform development in addition to DMG’s industrial scale crypto-mining and forensics efforts.

Wazabi is a cognitive platform built on blockchain to revolutionize the global cannabis industry’s entire ecosystem allowing it to thrive in our digital economy.  It helps resolve the following challenges:

Wazabi is a cognitive platform that utilizes Hyperledger Fabric blockchain, a decentralized, immutable, enterprise grade platform that provides transparency and trust for global supply chain optimization through business process automation and improved customer insight.  Bitcoin was the first use of blockchain technology but one of the best uses is in supply chain management of high value, or controlled and regulated products, and specifically cannabis. 

DMG’s CEO Dan Reitzik commented “With our Cognitive Platform, parties provide information with their digital signature so you know the information is from the respective parties.  In a supply chain with two or more parties this becomes extremely effective in providing transparency and trust while also reducing system integration costs. This revolutionary modern industry architecture serves as a baseline to help resolve many of the cannabis industry’s challenges and create new business process opportunities beyond the traditional supply chain processes.”

Various news outlets have reported that even Canadian Licensed Producers have had black market cannabis enter their facilities and then make its way into the legal cannabis market. Wazabi is being developed to prevent these serious issues from occurring.

At present there are multiple seed to sale, ERP, logistics, shipping, warehousing and point of sale systems, none of which can talk to each other without significant custom development work which becomes arduous and costly to maintain.  Wazabi doesn’t replace any of these systems, Wazabi’s pre-built Application  Programming Interfaces (APIs) accelerate integration of these systems across the entire ecosystem, while introducing the notion of trust and transparency for expanded process automation beyond entities' traditional four walls.  

Wazabi provides an irrefutable single source of truth in terms of all data, and unique advanced analytics using AI, machine learning and other deep learning capabilities for optimal customer insight and experience for business optimization.  When a product changes custody, trusted interoperability is always maintained, enabling a real-time view of where every batch of cannabis is currently in the supply chain as well as irrefutable provenance of each batch.  

Provinces, States, large retailers and distributors, and especially Countries, will have the ability to purchase Wazabi certified products from Wazabi marketplaces with the following benefits:

Dan Reitzik added “Short term, Wazabi helps resolve some significant challenges across the entire industry, medium term, with industry adoption, Wazabi will make the entire cannabis industry transparent and intelligent beyond what other industries have accomplished.  What helps make this possible beyond our people, technology and process is the fact that there are very little legacy systems to deal with compared to any other industry.  The ecosystem stakeholders have the opportunities to easily adopt this modern platform without going through a large transformation project. This modern platform is built to allow for easy integration into other modern platforms to help facilitate and accelerate global cross border shipping and resale of edibles through the supply chain of large retailers.”

Once fully developed and beta-testing has been completed, revenues are expected from charging producers a few cents per gram for Wazabi certification, from commissions earned on products sold wholesale through the Wazabi marketplaces, as well as from product forecasting and data analytics.

DMG is reviewing various transaction structures to determine the best way to structure, finance, and deploy Wazabi.
