MCIG Enters into the Cryptocurrency Market, Partnering with Render
Payment

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 10/12/17 --  mCig, Inc. (OTCQB:
MCIG), a diversified company servicing the legal cannabis markets,
enters into the cryptocurrency market, partnering with Render Payment
during its Pre-ICO (Initial Coin Offering).

The cannabis industry has traditionally been rife with illicit and
underhanded transactions, but it is now moving towards greater
legitimacy. Research shows powerful health benefits of cannabis and
strong social movements are pushing for increased legalization. One
way to improve the reputation of the industry is to modernize it,
make it standardized, fully verifiable, and built on a system of
trust between patients, doctors, growers, suppliers, merchants,
bankers, and customers. New blockchain technology offers an ideal
solution. Since blockchain holds an immutable ledger and assured
contracts, it can easily accommodate the recording of financial
transactions from seed acquisition to product delivery giving
consumers confidence and surety in the placement of their orders. 

Render Payment Token (RPM) is a crypto-token built for utilizing
smart contracts on blockchain, specifically designed to accommodate
high risk merchant services at discount prices, which adds legitimacy
to the worldwide cannabis community. It is backed by Ethereum's
secure, global ecosystem, designed to provide businesses and
individuals a trusted secure, private mechanism for financial
transactions. In initial testing payment processing was integrated
with Bitcoin, which proved to be reliable and stable. The solution
was then migrated to the Ethereum platform utilizing the RPM token to
provide lower costs, enhanced security, faster processing speed,
scalability and expansion.

Render Payment is the first organization dedicated to leveraging
smart contracts built on the blockchain to create and foster a
financial service platform for high risk merchant services. MCIG's
focus is on providing a solution not currently available to the
33,000+ cannabis businesses worldwide, with an economic impact of $44
billion per year. 

Eric Jaffe, Render Payments Chief Operations Officer stated, "Our
relationship with MCIG has been a long time in the making. Passing
this milestone just as our ICO is preparing to launch solidifies some
significant opportunities. The digital world is merging with the real
world, and it's happening as we speak. Its convergence is expanding
capabilities and optimizing quality of life for all, while supporting
innovation and discovery." Mr. Jaffe went on to say, "With MCIG's
projections of $10M in revenue this year, and based on their current
growth rate, we believe this payment processing solution will provide
considerable revenue for us and vast savings in merchant fees for
MCIG and its customers for this year and many years to come."

Paul Rosenberg, MCIG chief executive officer stated, "MCIG is highly
interested in the cryptocurrency market as management believes in the
combination of cryptocurrency solutions and blockchain technologies
for cannabis and hemp sales. The future of finance could be dominated
by blockchain technologies, and we want to be prepared. This solution
will legitimize the market as it continues to outpace all
expectations. MCIG will advance its opportunities in the blockchain
and cryptocurrency markets as it looks to expand its role and
relationship with Render Payment well into the future."
