Kokonut Network is born from the vision of lowering the barrier to agriculture development, rural project funding and democratizing investing in real-world projects. We will leverage blockchain technology to create several plantations throughout the country, bringing benefits to the global crypto communities and every individual within the network. Coconut farming is a proven business that has a lot of upsides.
What makes us different?
There are a lot of DAOs out there that are just good ideas, splendid composition, and marketing, the vast majority without a real business backing their idea. Many projects get rug-pulled or end up abandoned by their users because they don’t deliver a good product.
We at Kokonut Network have a different way of doing things. Instead of founding our proposal or business plan on exploiting our users, trying to hook them to buy some non-backed token. We have created a system to promote, fund, and manage coconut farms that is time-proof, backed by coconut plants on our land, DAO for governance, funds allocation & rewards sharing.
Kokonut Network Manifesto
Kokonut Network is a platform built by the people, for the people. At its core, Kokonut DAO looks to empower anyone adding value to the Kokonut Network ecosystem, regardless of their social status or previous accolades.
The core ethos of Kokonut Network is to create a truly self-sustainable protocol with integrity at heart. The community should always be prioritized over the capital.
The drive to create a truly open ecosystem is one that will take form with time. At inception, Kokonut Network will establish the Kokonut DAO - the governing entity responsible for allocating funding for Kokonut Network development and distributing rewards to contributors.
The Kokonut DAO is built on the following principles:
- Freedom of Choice - Enter and exit as you please.
- Freedom of Work - Collaboration is encouraged and necessary.
- Freedom of Power - No one person owns the Kokonut DAO. Those with the most “influence” are those who are adding the most value.
- Freedom of Access - Anyone adding value should receive DAO shares.
- Freedom of Pay - Anyone holding DAO shares may submit a funding proposal.
- Freedom of Opinion - Not all opinions will be unanimous. We encourage people to speak up and challenge any initiative or proposal which goes against the core ethos of Kokonut Network.
Every Kokonut DAO member should abide by these pre-designed guidelines and pledge not to vote on proposals to issue shares once we reach the 60,000 shares limitation for Kokonut V1.
If unfavorable circumstances require that a member sell their shares or loot they can submit a proposal to sell them to another Kokonut DAO Member or another address approved by Kokonut DAO members. This would require two proposals: one to rage-quit current shares and/or loot and one to mint new shares and/or for a current member. This would need two Kokonut DAO votes to support.
Contributors can enforce governance through Rage-quit to remove their donations at any time if they are not comfortable with the direction of Kokonut DAO.
Members should Rage-quit if the core team is not conducting the business program defined in funding proposals.
