Peer-to-Peer Payments Technology for the Medical Marijuana Sector - Dutch Gold Adds to Portfolio of Alternative Merchant Services for MMJ Retailers

ATLANTA, GA / Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (DGRI.OTC) (the "Company") ( today announced that it has begun development of a proprietary Peer to Peer (P2P) Payments technology specifically for the MMJ sector.

Said Dan Hollis, CEO, "Our Point of Banking solution requires customers to be onsite to initiate a PIN based transaction. By developing our own P2P platform, we intend to give merchants and consumers a more flexible payment system. This will be especially important for delivery services, mitigating the risk of drivers having to carry large amounts of cash. Further, this development will support repeat transactions between merchants and consumers in a regulatory compliant manner, whether in person, online or mobile."

The Company expects to complete the development of this new offering during the second quarter. Based on feedback from existing dispensaries, the rollout of this product will commence immediately thereafter.

Currently, some MMJ retailers are paying up to 9% for merchant services. The Company believes that it can drive down costs to the MMJ sector, while providing ample margins for its shareholders. The development of this proprietary technology can add shareholder value, and help solidly position the Company in the P2P payments sector.
