(OTCQB:MSRT), one of the leading technology platforms for the cannabis industry, is pleased to report it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire DDDigtal Inc. d.b.a. "Whaxy" & Cannabuild for $100,000 cash and 2,926,830 million shares of MassRoots' common stock.

"Zach Marburger is a brilliant strategist whom we've known for years and Whaxy's CTO Micah Davidson engineered one of the best technology platforms on the market with a lean budget. We could not be more excited to welcome them to the MassRoots team. Over the next few months, our main focus will be increasing the number of dispensaries utilizing the MassRoots/Whaxy platform."
"We could not be more excited to be joining forces with MassRoots, enabling Whaxy's system to scale its transaction volume, provide new capabilities to our customers, and add more enterprise value far more rapidly than we would have on our own," stated Zach Marburger, Whaxy founder and CEO. "MassRoots comes to the table with hundreds of thousands of end-cannabis consumer relationships, hundreds of dispensary clients, a world-class development team, and one of the largest shareholder bases in the industry. The synergies between our two companies are strong and together, we're building a cannabis technology powerhouse."
Whaxy's platform seamlessly integrates with nearly every major point-of-sale system used dispensaries and will seamlessly connect to the MassRoots network, allowing for live pricing, online ordering, and product feedback. Over the last six months, Whaxy has been used by some of the leading businesses in the industry, including Harborside, GreenHouse, Cresco Labs, and more.
