Montreal's crypto-currency for the Cannabis community.

So you’re still trying to wrap your head around the mechanics of the elusive Bitcoin? Well, get used to it, cause there are more complicated crypto-currencies where that came from. Meet Potcoin, the first currency that was “designed to empower, secure and facilitate the Cannabis community; medicinal and recreational alike.” Just like the Bit, only a limited amount of coins can be mined: 420 billion to be precise. The company’s Montreal owner Joel Yaffe launched the system in January of this year, and it already has 12 merchants accepting the currency, with two ATMs installed in Denver, Colorado just last week. And they say pot makes people unambitious…seems pretty enterprising to us.
