NORFOLK, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MassRoots, Inc. ("MassRoots" or the "Company") (OTCPink:MSRT) is pleased to announce plans to change its corporate name to “Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc.” (“Greenwave”) following the recent closing of its acquisition of Empire Services, Inc. (“Empire”). As part of the name change, Greenwave has released a new company logo and expects to launch a new corporate website in the coming days. Although the legal name of the company will continue to be MassRoots, Inc. until the name change process has been completed, for marketing and branding purposes, the Company will now begin to refer to itself, and will conduct business under the new corporate name.

We believe the Greenwave name emphasizes our focus on environmental technologies and commitment to constant forward progress.”

Greenwave recently acquired its 11th metal recycling facility, located in Virginia Beach, VA. It is one of only two scrap yards in Virginia Beach, the largest city in the state, and is expected to open under Greenwave management on or around October 18, 2021.
In the coming weeks, Greenwave intends to apply to uplist to the NASDAQ or the NYSE, which the Company believes would result in a significant increase in visibility, liquidity, and institutional interest for its stock.
