Mexico is getting more attention

We also learned that boutique distribution and curation companies like Captiva Verde (PWR) seem to be making inroads in Mexico to introduce cannabis, hemp and CBD brands to health and wellness seekers, which was evidenced by the discussion following the keynote. Craig Binkley, the President of PRØHBTD’s consumer brands division, interviewed a young Mexican father, Johan Bueno, about his family’s journey with his son’s epilepsy. It was inspiring to hear how Johan had discovered hemp-based CBD.

Here's a big NR with a big forecast cashflow (range) ; confirmed that these figs are in USD. Sage Ranch is real, it's going to happen, as he suggests and IMHO!

www.stockwatch.com/News/Item.aspx?bid=Z-...&symbol=PWR®ion=C

Real block has been quiet but it won't be for much longer. Time to get the show on the road. We have one competitor at this time, called Safe Chain. The opportunity looks immense. Will we be up to the challenge and make hay while we are a trail blazer?? Stay tuned.

"There is not a forever moat but they say they have first mover and that there is no one out there doing what they are doing. That will change.. "

Guys, sorry but I used the wrong term when I said "moat" , and I need to correct myself there is one competitor (Safe Chain). There is no IP that gives GRB or any one else that kind of (IP) advantage in terms of developing a block chain. You might build a better or a lesser one but there is no moat that prevents someone to build their own.

Safe chain was mentioned in the Dec 6 2018 Real Block Conference call as the (only) competition. Todd Taylor said that he felt they had lesser technology than RB, and that they didn't have title insurance industry (the target market) representation in the co., unless GRB where it is one of our big strong suits.


www.safechain.io/news

I like to own a monopoly $$$ like the next guy, but if there has to be competition I want them to be successful, just not very. If Safe Chain is in the lead, we're no. 2 so that's not bad! What is worse than their only competition not winning business ? Right, if they aren't winning any business.

I would be shocked if there are not multiple title insurance companies and IT firms working on block chain security solutions for the title insurance industry right now! The business opportunity looks so and there is great interest throughout the industry. The business opportunity is not to bring in a block chain. The business opportunity is to decrease the risk of fraud / hacking in the escrow transaction service part of the title industry offering by using blockchain.

In the States, title insurance co. receive trillions (I'm pretty sure I was told $50T but don't quote me) from real estate purchasers each year and transfer just about the same amount to real estate sellers. When you pass on things like your banking info using email it sets up the opportunity to be hacked and ripped off. BC is a tool and part of an overall solution to reduce the risk of loss. A

GRB feels that "Real Block" (its sub.) will be the first public BC co. to make money (from the use of the BC and not just from the building or development of BCs). Time will tell but if its successful, I am sure it that spin out will be on the mind.

I've done a lot of DD on GRB and it's my largest holding, an overweight 20%. GLTA.

The thing about their bid is that its regarded as new but it has an asterisk water mark on every page that says 'OR ELSE', lol. This is me not Jeff saying this but is it off the mark?

Look - Every one in the room knows the tender or whatever they call this needs to be fair and transparent (see "Puerto Rico" asterisk!) but that at the end of the day if GRB doesn't win the you know what will hit the fan.

A fight with GRB by way of continuation of the law suit is the LAST thing PREPA needs. They are on their fifth executive director or whatever you call the top guy in the last year per Jeff, and Washington is sick of it. PREPA needs to get their act together, last month.

Montalva is 100 MW out of the 1,000 MW they want to award so its still a far cry from what the MW that the IRP calls for. Don't recall the figure but its more than 1000KW.

I've asked about stories I've read about P. Ricans wanting off the grid but he said this isn't realistic. It is going to be extremely costly to build housing that can withstand Level 5 hurricanes, which GRB will be building their's to, for the homeowner to do that to their place and then secure a solar panel system that will also withstand Level 5 will be way too costly. it makes you wonder... anyway I got my answer and its good for GRB. GRB's system will cost an extra $25m to meet level 5, getting the picture?

GRB is an immense opportunity because Jeff has a real bad history of over promising and under delivering. Many of his long time shareholders are just sick of it. But its not all terrible, the result is a set up that results in one of the best opportunities i've ever seen. I said this 9 mo. ago and it still holds true, expect its way more real and closer now than then or 6 months ago or 3 months ago. And its just as cheap.

If one were to look at the projects alone w/ out the baggage that comes with so many broken promises, there is NO WAY these projects are worth $20m and have an EV of $24m. No way. Montalva is so close to being done deal and will be spun out.

Re - read what I said about Sage Ranch (we own 50% of the profits and are not paying for the overhead is my understanding) and that is going to be a beauty and its real. He told me, yesterday, he had lunch w/ a "commandant" at Edwards and the guy retired a year early because the housing is just so bad!

EDWARDS WANTS THOSE HOUSING UNITS AS MUCH AS GRB WANTS TO LEASE IT TO THEM. Leasing means a long term profit and cash flow model not a one time sale and out. This is great.

At the AGM he already told me that the base is not filling its engineering positions because guys are getting off the plane checking out housing seeing all the gangs and the hoods, and getting right back on the next one out of there. Edwards wants housing in Tehachapi and there is no other inventory there - just Sage. This appears to be a complete no brainer and I would not be surprised if we get some kind of NR in a month.

RB - where to start. How about this, another big over promise and under deliver disappointment, and so unnecessary too. You do not need to promise a 60,000 transaction exit rate in 12 months from going live! This is a ridiculously high target. Set it low and beat it. How about 10,000 - that is 4 x Tommy's in one year - and if you can do 15,000 then you're a star. (We've discussed this RB topic a few time - let's say we don't see eye to eye, LOL)

More recently I've been saying on SH 'show me the signs' reiterating 60,000 is out of the question. So if they can add their first external client , then another rand then another and report its going great well those will be great signs I'm told we have 5 title insurance co. impatiently waiting for US to give the ok to start. If the thing works great by the time they finish the first couple of installs it could be 10 (me talking). If it doesn't work great it might be less. Based on the experts working on the project and all the time and effort put in, I am definitely thinking the former.

Jeff has given the systems guys a lot more time to address changes, fixes, bugs but as he told me yesterday it is time to start making this a business. My guess is that it may take a month before the first external client is announced.

Do you guys who are in GRB really understand how significant this thing is if it works like they expect it too? GRB has the 'potential' to be as big and bigger than Montalva and the beauty of it is that it comes w/ out capital requirements; without the politicians and politics; and without the lawyers. It comes without hurricanes and Trump and Congress. The back end is done, it can handle way more than 60,000 and once it gets going its a high margin business.

There is not a forever moat but they say they have first mover and that there is no one out there doing what they are doing. That will change...but then 60,000 means $14m USD profit even if it takes 2 years. You can have 2.5 years Jeff. What will RB spun out be worth. Its total cap today is under C$20m..

I am totally onboard w/ Ron's description of GRB. Fantastic value and opportunity. You just need a little bit of faith. Just a bit, to see it.

I figured they would negotiate it again given the vast improvements in solar and how many years since the last deal was struck. It is only going to get better and still be very significant for GRB

Yeah, I’m pretty sure GRB has great value right here and now and at double and triple the current price. It’s got a market cap of $21m and fully diluted $25 m. Enerprise value is around $25 million.

There are literally hundreds and hundreds of ‘nothing’ trading at much higher valuations in the markets. But GRB comes by its valuation honestly. It is ‘full value’ for its lousy valuation meaning I think it’s explainable!

A lot of the shareholder base is from W Wind and some of these guys (those who didn’t dump it along the journey, as I would have - you better believe I would have!) are so sick of the delays and broken promises they are some of the ones selling and they are selling at the exact wrong time.

My take on why GRB so undervalued.

The solar project is in Puerto Rico, where the power authority PREPA is or was corrupt.

The market has discounted the project believing it will not get built, so solid proof is needed other wise.

With Realbloc, the crypto currency and block chain market has collapsed, was just a pump and dump. Although block chain has merit, the market wants prove there of success as well

Real Estate does not get much investor speculation, although the spin with cannabis might change that.

Patient investors will be rewarded very well, IMHO

Good to see some activity here on this one. I pasted in the latest daily cloud chart. Positive that the stock is still above the cloud, but other indicators signal it might weaken a bit further before a good buy. Near support is $1.06

Then it is to Ron’s credit that he did it not recommend it sooner especially since I think he made money with Western Wind? I only got in in July 2018. I read a Ron piece on the co that called it one of the most undervalued companies on the venture.

Since then theundervaluation has gotten a lot greater as they progress significantly on all fronts while the stock price has fallen (from the time I happened to read the article -$1.45) and the share count has only increased by a million and a half to what, 21m thereabouts.

As to RB, the only problem I know for sure is the high guidance they provided, lol!. If the market believed it, GRB would be $10 by now! Instead, assuming you believed in Montalva and Sage Ranch, RB is trading at nil or I’d say a negative valuation lol!

I like each of these 3 main projects a lot and have done a log of DD. it will simply take time to build up the RB business and this is more than reflected in the SP. The RB opp. looks real to me. They actually went live only one mo. ago!

I have not gone back to read Ron’s prior issues on this co. So this has probably been brought up but just in case, GRB owns 10.6 m . If PWR trades over $1 for 10 consecutive days those shares will be divvy out to shareholders prorata. Today this would mean 1 share of PWR for every 2 GRB U own.

Anyway I was the only shareholder at the AGM so I had a chance to ask a bunch of questions.
