Kokonut Network provides blockchain governance and open-source accounting to the agricultural industry. Our mission is to promote, organize, fund, and manage coconut farms. We collect funds from the community through the Kokonut DAO framework for decision-making and allocating treasury funds.
Kokonut Network can establish a lifetime partnership with its members through the Kokonut DAO by using a formula of Agriculture, Blockchain, Web3, Perfect Soil, and Weather. This opportunity does not have an expiration date, as coconut trees are replanted once they stop bearing fruits.
One-time contribution equals a lifetime of rewards and benefits.
8 Facts About the Coconut Fruit
- Coconuts are the most cultivated and important palm trees globally, as they are the main source of vegetable fat.
- They are one of the most diversely-used plants in the world, providing food, drinks, and shelter.
- Coconut plants are distributed over most islands in the tropics, and even some places outside the zone.
- Indonesia, India, the Philippines, Malaysia, Central America, and Tropical Africa are the main coconut-cultivating countries.
- The main exported product is unprocessed COPRA (coconut pulp), followed by dried coconut. The diversity and potential of coconut significantly contribute to the economic sector of the cultivating countries.

Description & Scope
This project will benefit the entire society of the Municipality of Las Salinas, Barahona Province, Dominican Republic. The coconut plants will be planted 7.5 x 7.5 meters apart, equating to ninety-six (96) plants per acre of land, or 60,000 plants across the six hundred and twenty (620) Acres of land. This variety of coconut yields approximately three hundred (300) fruits per plant, resulting in an annual yield of 18,000,000 units. The Kokonut DAO treasury will receive 100% of the profits.
The organization seeks to create 10,663 direct and indirect jobs through investments in this project. These jobs will focus on essential agricultural tasks such as weeding, applying pesticides and fertilizers, irrigation, and harvesting.
Irrational land management is causing deforestation, endangering all the surrounding flora and fauna. There is a lack of jobs and opportunities in the municipality, high poverty levels, and low educational attainment.
Concerning the coconut market, there is a high demand in both national and international markets, yet annual domestic production fails to meet this demand.
Blockchain open data and protocols can benefit DAO members, farmers, and partners by facilitating fundraising and coordination. We also monitor fauna and flora, including endangered species.
We create job opportunities and improve quality of life. Incorporating 620 acres of land in optimal conditions into the national production system can increase annual production and reduce demand.
Coconut Net Sales — Our Kokonut v1 Plantation consists of 60,000 coconut plants, which will produce approximately 18,000,000 coconuts per year. The average wholesale price in the Dominican Republic is $0.44, which amounts to $7,920,000 per year. We are already working on connecting with transnational buyers, so we are ready to export our product and gain even more revenue.
Coconut Derivatives — Coconuts are one of the most versatile fruits on the planet. From coconut milk and oil to body cream and water, the list of uses is nearly endless. This is why coconuts are one of the most profitable fruits in the agriculture sector.
Industrialized Coconut Products — Besides just producing and selling coconuts, we are also planning to create a range of products, such as coconut milk, coconut water, coconut pulp, and beauty products. These will be available for both retail and wholesale to transnational conglomerates.

Kokonut DAO Workflow
This layer is composed of Kokonut DAO members. They are responsible for overseeing and voting on proposals that benefit the Kokonut Network. Anyone who holds at least one Kokonut DAO share can participate in DAO governance.
This layer is where the DAO, treasury, list of shareholders, funding, and membership proposals voting live securely. All of the information critical for the project's transparency and longevity is publicly available on the Gnosis Chain.
After approval by Kokonut DAO members, this layer functions as the body responsible for executing the budget and work plan. It is composed of the Core Team, Kokonut DAO Contributors, and Global Enterprise Partners.
This is where the magic happens! In this layer, we bring our mission to life: building, producing, and distributing Coconuts & Derivatives products globally. Kokonut V1 is our first plantation, comprising 60,000 coconut plants across 620 acres of land, with an annual production of 18 million coconuts.
