On behalf of BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSXV: DNAX) (formerly Scorpion Resources Inc.)(the “Company”), we’re pleased to announce that trading began today in shares of our company on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) under the stock symbol ‘DNAX.’ 

This is a big day for our team, and is the culmination of many years of preparation and dedication to building a software company designed exclusively to meet the unique needs and challenges of the emerging cannabis industry.  We have combined the best of enterprise and decentralized ledger technology to launch the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks intellectual property for the cannabis sector.


BLOCKStrain offers a comprehensive, community-driven cannabis genetics registration and licensing archive platform dedicated to making it safe and comfortable for breeders and growers, large and small, to protect and release their cannabis varieties into the public domain. Our software is designed to provide verification and transparency in the marketplace in order to ensure a safe and legal pipeline of inventory between the producers and consumers.

Additionally, we designed our platform to streamline and automate the testing process for cannabis, a regulatory requirement that we expect will become more onerous once recreational marijuana becomes legal in the Canadian market. Our mission is to support the growth of this industry by providing tools that maximize efficiency and eliminate redundancies. By combining our platform with some of the largest testing labs in North America, we aim to cut administrative time and costs in half.

If you are a grower, cultivator or producer of legal cannabis, and you want to protect your intellectual property or have your product tested, we want to hear from you. We also want to hear from any and all technology companies that are interested in working with us to further innovate technology for the evolving needs of the growing cannabis industry.

To investors, we promise to work tirelessly on your behalf and for the long-term growth of BLOCKStrain, ensuring this is the best tech company in the sector, and one that provides you with a solid and sound long-term investment.

Stay tuned for more news. Today’s announcement is the first of many great things to come.

About BLOCKStrain Technology Corp.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX-V: DNAX.V) has developed the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks intellectual property for the cannabis industry. Strain protection and genetic identification are major issues for growers and breeders, and this new technology allows them to identify and secure rights to their valuable intellectual property (IP). The BLOCKStrain platform also streamlines the administrative process of genetic and mandatory quality-control testing for legal cannabis, cutting the administrative time and expense in half.

BLOCKStrain’s proprietary, immutable, cryptographically-secure blockchain-technology establishes a global ‘single source of truth’ for cannabis strains, their ownership, potency and chemical makeup. In an industry where a popular strain can be worth millions of dollars, it is crucial to the industry’s future to quantify genetics, potency and equivalencies between cannabis products. BLOCKStrain delivers needed transparency to growers, retailers, regulators, and consumers who have struggled to find realistic solutions to these logistical challenges. The good news is that the blockchain technology implemented by BLOCKStrain is ideally suited to solve these kinds of problems by implementing an immutable and non-corruptible record of transactions.
