If you were interested in getting involved with cryptocurrency, this one is tied to the price of bananas and is based out of a Laos banana plantation. According to their Twitter bio, Bananacoin is "the first environmentally friendly banana plantation in Laos that has released a token based on Ethereum, pegged to the export price of 1kg of bananas." Bananacoin is also the first blockchain option in the world that would allow you to invest in the production of organic bananas.

Exporting bananas to the Chinese market is a significant part of this business. The company is fighting against the extinction of the common banana by producing a sweet species called Lady Fingers, which are also the most expensive and popular in China.
