The cannabis industry is booming right now.
Experienced investors and media personalities are calling the emerging industry a bubble due to lack of revenue and lofty expectations, often comparing it to the Dotcom bubble.
While the Dotcom comparisons aren’t entirely justified, the lack of revenue of most cannabis companies is startling. One example of this is The Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD.T) who has a market cap of $1.578 billion and zero revenue to date.
DMG Actually Makes Money
One major factor that should be a performance indicator for the potential future success of a company is revenue.
This is why DMG Blockchain (DMGI.C) entering the cannabis space is interesting, they have a proven track record of generating revenue in a different, but symbiotic industry. As we wrote previously, crypto companies are still generating revenue through Bitcoin mining, mining as a service, data analytics, forensics and many other streams. DMG Blockchain (DMGI.C) did $6,180,342 in revenue last year by crushing it in the blockchain/crypto space.
According BC Business DMG has recently entered into the cannabis space through the development of an e-commerce marketplace and supply-chain management system called CannaChain. The system intends to give consumers total transparency and quality assurances by tracking product from licensed growers all the way to the store.
By logging each step along the supply chain on the blockchain – a decentralized, timestamped, and unhackable digital ledger – this ground-breaking platform is expected to provide an irrefutable record outlining the journey the product has made, from beginning to end.
DMG has a lot to bring to cannabis, perhaps most of all is the companies propensity in earning revenue, something that is going to become more and more important as we move past legalization and lofty promises need to be followed up on.

Investors should beware of new companies entering the red hot cannabis space as everyone wants in, this includes companies who don’t have a proven track record and see this as an opportunity to print money and sail off to The Bahamas. With DMG’s experienced management team and range of revenue generating streams, seeing them sail off to the sunset anytime soon is highly unlikely.
