Imagine a world where crypto is not just about the market; it's about coconuts, nature, and regenerating the Earth.

Why do we need a global network for coconuts?

Kokonut Network is a Blockchain-based Cooperative powered by Trees & People 🏕️🌳💚

Perpetual Value Ecosystem ♻️🔷🌴

Syntropic Agriculture for Communities 👨🏽‍🌾🌴

A vision of change

Kokonut Network was created to reduce the obstacles to agricultural development, and rural project funding, and democratize investment in real-world projects. We will use blockchain technology to establish multiple plantations nationwide, providing advantages to the global communities and everyone in the network.

By focusing on Regenerative Agriculture, we are setting our project on a path to long-term prosperity. This approach involves restoring degraded soils and nurturing the land to support healthy crops and stable harvest cycles, ensuring sustained success over the years.

Mission approach powered by people & trees 🌱

Syntropic farming is a proven business that offers many potential benefits. From providing a reliable source of income for farmers to supplying a wide range of products for consumers, this industry has a lot to offer. Not only does it provide a steady source of income, but it also helps to strengthen the local economy and promote sustainable development.

Coconut farming can also help protect the environment by providing an alternative to deforestation and reducing the use of pesticides. Furthermore, coconut farming can help to create jobs in rural areas, helping to reduce poverty and improve quality of life.

Coconut is the most cultivated and vital palm tree in the world, as it is the main source of vegetable fat. It is one of the plants that provide a wide variety of products and by-products, serving as a primary source of food, drinks, and shelter for animals.

Kokonut V1 is a real-world eco-friendly agriculture project in its plantation phase. We have obtained planting permits and 620 acres of soil-tested land in optimal conditions, with access to water and the best weather in the region.

Coconut products market outlook

The coconut products market size was valued at $11.5 billion in 2018 and is estimated to reach $31.1 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 13.6% from 2019 to 2026. In 2018, the coconut oil segment accounted for more than half of the total coconut products market share. [source]

Coconut is a versatile fruit with many health benefits. Its derivatives, such as coconut oil, water, milk, desiccated coconut, coir, and copra, are used in the food, beverage, cosmetic, and personal care industries.

Problem

A global issue revolves around insufficient funding for agricultural projects, imposing immense stress on grassroots farmers. This contributes to deforestation, as people resort to using wood for cooking and cutting down trees due to limited financial incentives to protect their environment.

Most of the labor is executed by farmers trapped in poverty due to the lack of avenues to improve their income. They lack the processes, knowledge, and resources necessary to compete with corporations that control over 90% of the global coconut market.

Solution

Blockchain open data and protocols offer a solution that benefits DAO members, farmers, and partners. This involves simplifying fundraising and coordination processes while actively monitoring fauna, flora, and endangered species to create a holistic solution.

We aim to create job opportunities and enhance the quality of life for those contributing to the network's well-being through a framework with bullet-proof standardized processes.

The objective is to establish a fair mechanism for funding, managing, and developing coconut plantations while maintaining a commitment to environmental preservation.
