If you go down to my last post, I shared some info that their IR responded to one of my questions with. There are links to their Social Media accounts where they post updates. I don’t know if anything there will answer why the sudden increase in volume today however. Today’s volume is substantially higher than what we see with the usual couple of trades in a day.
I was curious with the recent announcement that the Fed is looking at passing a bill to federally legalize cannabis, if it would have an impact on this stock’s price.
I agree with you that some folks know, or are strongly assuming, something is going to happen.
I would find it helpful to see some news that would explain this volume today. Something must be brewing.
I wish they would tell us more about their blockchain technology. There is a lot of buzz around crypto, blockchain ledgers, the Metaverse, DeFi, NFT's, Ethereum, stablecoins, tokens and tokenization in the news lately.
I wonder what details about the TrueTrace blockchain the company could tell us. I suspect it might generate some interest in their products.

TTTSF: How Blockchain and Molecular Tagging Can Support The Growth Of The Medical Cannabis Industry
PR from DNA Sciences. Supports TTTSF's StrainSecure 2.0.
Applied DNA Sciences : CertainT® Platform Support for TruTrace StrainSecure™ 2.0
09/14/2021 | 09:12am EDT
Applied DNA Announces CertainT® Platform Support for TruTrace StrainSecure™ 2.0 for Next Generation Cannabis Tagging, Testing and Tracking Advances Partnership Aimed at Streamlining Cannabis and CBD Cultivator Production, Safety Standards, and Traceability While Increasing Brand Recognition
STONY BROOK, N.Y. September 14, 2021.Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: APDN) (Applied DNA or the 'Company'), a leader in Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-based DNA manufacturing and nucleic acid-based technologies, today announced that its CertainT® platform has added support for StrainSecure 2.0 by TruTrace Technologies, Inc. (CSE: TTT; OTCQB: TTTSF) ('TruTrace') that builds on the companies' strategic sales, marketing, and technology integration partnership to advance their vision of an integrated, cannabis product validation and authentication supply chain security solution for cannabis companies. The two companies recently announced that Flora Growth ('Flora') will utilize their integrated solution be as part of Flora's global cannabis product validation platform. TruTrace is the developer of a fully integrated blockchain platform for the legal cannabis, food, and pharmaceutical industries.
StrainSecure 2.0 is designed specifically for the cannabis industry and aims to demystify the seed-to-sale process for all relevant stakeholders, including producers, distributors, shippers, government agencies, and consumers, by powering commercial standards via an immutable, shared ledger. Applied DNA's CertainT platform has been integrated into TruTrace's StrainSecure software platform since the launch of the companies' strategic alliance in January 2021.
'Integrating our two platforms brings a unique end-to-end solution to the maturing international cannabis industry. With regulations and compliance standards being implemented worldwide, an integrated offering of StrainSecure 2.0 and CertainT can help cannabis companies meet these standards and provide product authenticity and transparency to end-user customers,' said John Shearman, vice president of marketing and cannabis lead at Applied DNA.
Applied DNA's CertainT platform provides the physical tagging of cannabis products using a unique molecular tag to represent the brand and product. That tag is then tested at key nodes within a domestic or international supply chain. All authentication and chain-of-custody data are captured in the CertainT portal, which integrates with the TruTrace platform and will support StrainSecure 2.0. The molecular tag can be applied to cannabis plants, oils, lotions, tablets, edibles, and packaging to serve as an immutable indicator of authenticity, origin, and provenance.
TruTrace's blockchain-based SaaS software is designed to guarantee product quality and strain genetics throughout global supply chains. Protecting consumers and brands from contaminants and counterfeiting is a key benefit of the platform.
Robert Galarza, CEO of TruTrace, stated, 'Over the past two years and after extensive work with key partners, such as Applied DNA, we've gained a deep understanding of the new challenges facing this industry. Version 2.0 of StrainSecure, as well as its interoperability with CertainT, will allow us to provide clients with turnkey tools specifically designed to support product quality, traceability, customer engagement, and safety.'
Most software systems utilized in the industry are fragmented and are built to manage internal operations, with very little interoperability into secondary systems. This fragmentation leads to increased administrative costs, reduced revenue, and increased risks for stakeholders. To address some of these issues, StrainSecure 2.0 will include several robust features tailored to decrease administrative costs, increase revenue, scale business operations, and highlight product quality. StrainSecure 2.0 also includes a significant number of new features, including full integration into the CertainT® platform, that facilitate higher standards and fuels business growth. One such new feature is the Enhanced Scan Page, which serves as a marketing tool for brands by providing real-time data on products at the package level.
Galarza added, 'The expectations of customers, as it relates to the quality of the products they choose to consume, has never been higher. StrainSecure 2.0 focuses on promoting good actors in the industry and giving them a solution, which unifies their network, mitigates risk, ensures compliance with commercial standards, and creates a safer and more consistent marketplace for their customers. Globally focused hemp and cannabis businesses equip themselves with StrainSecure™ to scale their business.'

TTTSF (.0475) TruTrace Technologies launches 2.0 version of its StrainSecure cannabis-tracking technology
The new version adds a number of new features to the blockchain-enabled technology, such as expanded API capabilities and digital documentation system.

TruTrace Technologies Inc has launched a new version of its proprietary cannabis-tracking platform StrainSecure.
The 2.0 version of the platform adds a number of new features to the blockchain-enabled technology, such as expanded API capabilities and digital documentation systems.
Most notably, the enhanced scan page gives brands a fully-customizable solution to showcase their product’s quality to consumers and market directly from a scan of their packaging.

Other improvements include a real-time collaboration module, a detailed inventory management system, and risk mitigation and recall prevention tools.
"Over the first two years of our business, and after extensive work with leading organizations such as Shoppers Drug Mart (Loblaws), University Health Network, and Deloitte, we’ve gained a deep understanding of the new challenges facing this industry. The second version of StrainSecure will allow us to provide our clients with turnkey tools specifically designed to support the quality of their products and increasing engagement with their customers,” TruTrace CEO Robert Galarza told shareholders in a statement.
According to Vancouver-based TruTrace, most software systems utilized in the industry are fragmented or built only to manage internal operations, which leads to increased administrative costs, reduced revenue and more risks. StrainSecure 2.0 is designed to decrease administrative costs, increase revenue, scale business operations and highlight product quality, the company noted.
Riviera Beverages COO Tony Antillon said that implementing StrainSecure could reduce or prevent recalls, keeping a company from “crippling losses".
"The technology developed by TruTrace is revolutionary not only in its ability to showcase good management practices in action, but also the ability to mitigate significant recall risks in the consumer packaged goods space," Antillon told investors.
"The costs associated with a recall are extremely high as manufacturers must cover costs on a per-store and per-item basis with lack of transparency and traceability being a major contributing factor.”
TruTrace develops fully integrated software, secured on a blockchain infrastructure, that allows brands to store, manage, share, and immediately access quality assurance and testing details, COAs, as well as motion and movement intelligence on inventory.

Yes, they tend to be very quiet on all fronts. Every once in awhile Shoppers releases a video or podcast with one of the leaders discussing TTT. I also recall not hearing anything about Clever Leaves last year for a long time and I reached out to Clever Leaves investor relations and they confirmed the program.
It's a very weird dynamic TTT has imposed on its investors, but I think an important one- they stay more quiet on things rather than loud. As a penny stock, that's kind of nice in a certain way so it doesn't look like a pump and dump. The downside is we look like we aren't doing anything and keeps the stock in the pennies. Part of this seems to be that we aren't collecting any revenues yet from any of the clients so maybe they are avoiding pumping the stock or discussing much because everything is still ongoing (testing, implementation, etc. at all its clients and partners).
Luckily, the latest release seems to imply the start of revenue rolling in. Hopefully more details from more clients to come, and Q1 fins due soon I think.
I agree that information has been hard to come by and lack of communication as the SP continued to erode was frustrating. I e-mailed them on Thurs. night last week and they responded Friday morning, which is impressive. Their response indicates a level of professionalism that is not commonly found in the OTC. They could have said "big news will be announced next week, like a lot of shady tickers on the OTC will do, but they did not. Below is what they said.
We appreciate you reaching out and for supporting TruTrace. We did receive both your emails, thank you.
To stay up to speed on current developments & news, we invite you to follow us on our social channels (I'll include them for you below). As a publicly traded company we're unfortunately limited on the general details of business developments we can share privately with shareholders. We will of course, quickly issue news releases for the public when said developments are formalized into material agreements.
On an other note, Robert Galarza did a Q&A a few months ago answering shareholders questions, watching that may help provide more clarity for you as well. You're welcome to shoot over any additional questions that he could address for our next Q&A.
Be sure to stay up to date on our website and sign up for our newsletter if you have not already.

Thank you for your continuous support.
No mention of Shoppers in the financials, and TruTrace hasn't updated investors on much of anything, so I was concerned the collaboration had quietly ended. Also, no press release from TTTSF today. Wondering if they're still working with Clever Leaves (CLVR) on a similar project.
did you not think they were working together?
TTTSF Also nice to see Shoppers Drug Mart alliance confirmed.
From the Press Release:
"TruTrace’s blockchain-based SaaS software is designed to guarantee product quality and strain genetic authenticity throughout global supply chains. Protecting consumers and brands from contaminants and counterfeiting is a key benefit of the platform under development. Shoppers Drug Mart, Canada’s largest retail pharmacy chain, currently uses the TruTrace platform as its underpinning technology infrastructure for traceability and accountability associated with its medical cannabis program."
Nice move by TruTrace today!
Flora Growth Launches Cutting-Edge Global Cannabis Distribution Strategy, Implements Pharmaceutical Standards For Its Supply Chain
Mentioned: APDN FLGC TTTSF
Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC) ("Flora" or the "Company"), a leading all-outdoor cultivator and manufacturer of global cannabis products and brands, is pleased to announce it has signed agreements with TruTrace Technologies, Inc. (CSE: TTT; OTCQB: TTTSF) ("TruTrace") and Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: APDN) ("Applied DNA") to launch a complete and differentiated global cannabis product validation and authentication platform for consumers, distributors, and government regulators. This initiative further demonstrates Flora's commitment to operational excellence and transparency enabling immutable genome-to-sale supply chain validation for domestic and international trading partners and government regulators, as the Company seeks to establish a new global standard for cannabis distribution practices. The technology integration and build-out is well underway, with management anticipating its use for customers in the recently announced agreements to export cannabis products internationally to South Africa and Australia (see press releases dated July 26th and July 29th, respectively).
Flora will use TruTrace's blockchain-based SaaS software to track inventory and product quality testing, including molecular tagging through Applied DNA's CertainT platform to track the cannabis flower and derivatives originating from its Cosechemos cultivation and extraction facility. The implementation of these technologies will ensure the products exported out of Colombia and delivered to global customers are derived directly from Flora's operations, substantially reducing any concerns over counterfeit or illicit market products. Flora anticipates using this technology will further differentiate its low-cost, organically produced cannabis flower and derivatives from competitors as they can rest assured regarding the immutable journey these products traversed.
"In today's globalized market, supply chain provenance is becoming an increasingly important component for every major international CPG company. This is particularly true for the cannabis industry, where concerns over the sale and distribution of products from the illicit market persist for businesses," commented Jason Warnock, Flora Growth's Chief Revenue Officer. "Flora anticipates that the added assurance, efficiency, and transparency brought by these technologies will optimize our value proposition to customers, differentiate us from peers, and increase our sales opportunities."
"Agriculture is one of the oldest industries known to man, yet the technology necessary to support the cannabis industry continues to lag behind many others. This solution will empower Flora and its trading partners with tools needed to report and rapidly search through records in real-time," said Robert Galarza, CEO of TruTrace. "Today's cannabis industry is desperately seeking legitimacy as it gains global acceptance, moving from the underworld of the illicit drug trade into a transparent and highly regulated emerging industry. The immutable power of big data is the key to that trust, and we applaud Flora Growth for launching this cutting-edge initiative to lead the charge in setting a new global standard for cannabis distribution."
"We are pleased for the opportunity to empower Flora's global supply chain strategy with our CertainT platform," stated Dr. James Hayward, President and CEO of Applied DNA. "Through our integration with TruTrace, we are injecting an unprecedented level of transparency, traceability, and trust into cannabis supply chains reflective of Flora's commitment to its global customer base."
TruTrace Technologies (CSE: TTT; OTCQB: TTTSF), a developer of a fully-integrated blockchain platform for the legal cannabis, food, and pharmaceutical industries, today announced that it has signed a letter of intent with LeafWorks Inc., a female-founded AgTech genomics company specializing in plant identification, research and development initially for the cannabis industry, to create a blockchain-secured platform for supply chain validation in order to meet growing standards within the cannabis industry.
LeafWorks' proprietary supply chain certification service is a DNA-based testing method that tracks and verifies a client's cannabis material as it moves across the supply chain. LeafWorks' third-party verification service tracks samples, assesses batch consistency, incorporates DNA-level quality control measures, and mitigates fraud both in and out of a client's supply chain. With TruTrace providing the means to secure this information via blockchain and providing traceability throughout the supply chain, cannabis cultivators will soon have a critical tool for incorporating validation testing into their operations to meet FDA and cGMP level compliance.
"As the cannabis and hemp industries continue to evolve, it will be absolutely vital for manufacturers and cultivators to provide validation within the supply chain," says LeafWorks Inc.'s Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer, Kerin Law, PhD. "Whether via the implementation of regulations or commercial standards, we are leading the market with data-driven solutions to meet the demands of a maturing marketplace."
"The days of cannabis prohibition are numbered, and the roles of cannabis in both medical and recreational settings will continue to gain acceptance. For cultivators, this means taking a mature approach to their supply chain in order to meet the growing demands of larger distribution partners," says Robert Galarza, CEO of TruTrace. "This partnership provides a foundation for continued advancement, as the extensive testing and profiling provided by LeafWorks will now be secured on the immutable ledger of the TruTrace blockchain."
The combined APDN / TTTSF offering can be a game changer in the cannabis market. This partnership can easily expand into the psilocybin / psychedelic market, as that begins to explode. There are LOTS of synergies, and more will evolve over time, in terms of overlapping customers, suppliers, and distribution channels. Going forward, and as these markets mature and gain increased traction, the need to KNOW EXACTLY what's in one's medical cannabis or medical psilocybin will be PARAMOUNT in order for patients, physicians and pharmacists to be confident in the supply chain.
At less than $10 million valuation, with the APDN partnership, and the Shopper's Drug Mart trial coming to a conclusion soon, TTTSF should see a MATERIAL BOOST to its valuation.
Adding significant shares over the next month.
What prompted all this activity on Friday? I haven't found any press releases, or other news.
I wonder how their efforts to hit other verticals with their blockchain technology is progressing?
Hopefully some sort of update soon.
Should be nearing conclusion of the Shoppers Drug Mart cannabis blockchain trial. No news yet.
TTTSF moving on this news, I think.
Though not mentioned, we know TTTSF's Strain Secure is powering the Shoppers Drug trial.
Well this report is not very good. I understand that. However the fact that they made any money at all is encouraging. After all the silence from this company. I was actually thinking that they may file for bankruptcy. So, they are still alive, made some money, so there is hope that it may survive.
Just curious, what did you like about the fins
