How To Pay With Bitcanna

BitCanna is a payment solution initiated by the cannabis industry. Most banks, credit card companies, and payment providers won’t handle money generated by the cannabis industry, even when it’s completely legal. To address this problem, BitCanna created a platform to provide a decentralised payment network for the legal cannabis industry, by means of the BitCanna coin (BCNA). This coin can be used as a payment method.

Privacy And Security

How does BitCanna ensure the safety of my coins?
BitCanna takes privacy and security very seriously. For that reason, BitCanna is built upon a technology that guarantees the safety of its users’ financial data. This technology is called the blockchain. This essentially means that BitCanna is not able to access any of your wallets nor the funds inside those wallets.

For this reason, it is very important to safely store your seed phrase and wallet password on an external location, such as a USB drive, so you can always recover your wallets in case you lose access. You are the sole owner of your wallet, and with that comes responsibility.
What should I do if I want to transfer my Keplr wallet to another device?
You will need to install the Keplr wallet on your new device and choose “Import account” as the login method. Then, you will have to enter your seed phrase to restore your account. Without your seed phrase, you are unable to access your account on other devices.
I lost the recovery phrase for my Keplr wallet. What should I do?
If you still have access to your Keplr wallet but you lost your recovery phrase, you can recover this phrase in the Keplr wallet itself. All you will need is the password used to log in to your wallet. If you lost both your recovery phrase and your password, then you will not be able to recover your funds. This is why we highly recommend storing your recovery phrase in a secure location, such as a text document on a USB drive.
