The recently created PotCoin is hoping to capitalize on the legalization movement within the cannabis community. Much like Bitcoin and Silkroad (sans the hard drugs) before them, PotCoin wants to build an online family of tokers, its own currency, and a place where potheads from near and far can feel safe while buying, selling, and trading cannabis. Will this upstart meet a simillar fate as Bitcoin and Silkroad? That is yet to be determined, however if the feds are willing to leave this alone, it could be promising.
