Owns hydroponic brands including Gavita, Botanicare and Can Filters.

Will operate the trading platform, called Vault Chain, which essentially digitizes gold. It uses blockchain the same technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies which uses a distributed ledger to record all transactions.Through an agreement with the Mint, every trade on Vault Chain will be backed one to one by physical gold bullion in storage at its vault.

Some want Truth, even if it means being corrected, rebuked, or enlightened. Today’s attitude of “I’m okay; you’re okay” does no one any real favors.
