Process & Pay-outs

The Process


The Corekees Foundation offers bonds. Each bond represents one tree as part of a batch of 10,000 trees. Each bond costs $22.50 and can be purchased through the webshop on Corekees.com. All bonds are valid for 20 years, with the year of purchase considered as year number one (1). Interests are variable; depending on harvesting profits from the crude oil and protein/fertilizer. See the graph below for the projected interests and redemptions. The redemptions will be paid in year 7 to 20, as the trees are considered mature from the 7th year onwards. Payments in year 1 to 6 are variable interests.


In order to purchase a bond, an online account must be created on Corekees.com. Each purchased bond will be displayed on your personal dashboard, accompanied with the date of purchase and serial number. A randomized serial-number will be generated automatically for each bond. These serials are unique and your proof of ownership.


All the bonds are tradable. A buyer can be suggested by either the original owner or The Corekees Foundation. When bonds are transferred, The Corekees Foundation will transfer the bond- and serial numbers to the new owner and adjust these details accordingly in the Bond Register. Therefore, all trade deals have to be handled by The Corekees Foundation.


Each tree is part of a batch of 10,000 trees. Trees in the batch are planted, maintained, harvested and paid-out equally and proportionally to the number of purchased bonds/trees. The trees are considered mature in the 7th year after purchase. Once mature, a steady profit of $3.80 is expected per bond. Keep track of your bonds and pay-outs in your Corekees monitoring dashboard. After 20 years, a cumulative return of 256% is projected ($57.50 per $22.50-bond).


The trees you order are planted as cuttings and need some time to mature before the first (profitable) harvest, which is expected in the 3rd to 4th year after purchase. We will keep you up to date on their development in the meanwhile. Once we start harvesting: a. The shell is separated from the nut inside b. Almost half of the nut contains crude oil, which is extracted by crushing c. The residue of this crushing is used as either protein-food for the cattle or as bio-fertilizer on the land

How It Works

So the trees are issued as 20-year bonds. Each bond equalizes one tree. One bond/tree entitles the owner to all proportional (net) pay-outs from that designated batch. Baches are 10,000 bond/trees in size.

The flowchart below explains the pricing of the bond and pay-outs, and displays the process flow. It further explains when the trees are harvested and the products (crude oil and protein/fertilizer) are sold. These costs are included in the order value for the first four years. The displayed prices are net prices for you as a bond/tree holder.
