HENDERSON, Nev. — EVIO, Inc. (OTC: EVIO) announced today that the company will offer its customers blockchain verification services for cannabis, hemp, CBD and related products in partnership with Chroma Signet.
Chroma Signet has developed a platform that allows cannabis and hemp companies to safeguard their products with fast, reliable product authentication and associated labels.
EVIO will provide verification services and assist its customers with joining Chroma Signet’s Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). This DAO will serve its members by helping them acquire a special form of non-fungible token (NFT) that represents a namespace that will allow customers to easily verify the origin of cryptographic signatures attached to cannabis products throughout the cannabis supply chain.
Lori Glauser, CEO says “For years, the cannabis and hemp/CBD industry has been challenged with product authentication. Improper tracing of genetics, arbitrary assignment of strain names, and counterfeit test results that cause both commercial and safety concerns. The EVIO-Chroma Signet partnership will help solve these problems. This marks EVIO’s first step towards its broader plan to enter into the blockchain space.”
Marcus Estes, CEO of Chroma Signet says “this is the early stages of deployment of an open protocol that will help consumers gain insight into the supply chains connected to the products they buy. We’re excited to partner with EVIO to help upgrade the software systems that power the cannabis industry.”
