Bananacoin Is A New Cryptocurrency Based On Banana Prices

Yes, Bananacoin is a real cryptocurrency. Yes, it's linked to the actual export price of bananas. And yes, people are already making "banana stand" jokes about it.

But bananas are a pretty boring food. As someone who knows little to nothing about cryptocurrency, I think we could be having a lot more fun with the treats to which we are pegging our currency.

Please do not send me any feedback.

1. Avocadocoin

The avocadocoin fluctuates based on how the ripe the avocado in your desk drawer is. For the 1-2 hours during which your avocado is perfectly ripe, each avocadocoin will be worth $1 million USD.  At all other times, it will be worth $2.50. 

Think this sounds unfair? Try waiting for an avocado to get ripe.

2. Tostitos®HintOfLimecoin

This altcoin is pegged to how many bags of Tostitos® Hint of Lime tortilla chips (a really nice, tangy chip) are available at your local grocery store. 

Unlike bananacoin, though (which counts on bananas always being in demand), it's not designed to promote certainty among investors. Rather, it's designed to encourage grocery stores to stock more bags of Tostitos Hint of Lime tortilla chips, which are so good and are barely ever at the convenience store by my apartment. 

Someone please do this for me!

3. LaCroix'n

This cryptocurrency becomes stronger every time someone drinks an ice cold can of LaCroix. However, it dips every time some poor soul drinks a warm can or a can of Coconut LaCroix at any temperature.

This one's pretty volatile, too, depending on how much you trust Generation Y. It will crash whenever millennials decide to kill it.

4. Frenchfrycoin

This cryptocurrency is completely unpredictable, fluctuating according to the quality of each french fry eaten on Earth. Since french fries are either very good or very bad, but are being eaten almost constantly, you will literally never know how much it is worth. This is the unique fun of Frenchfrycoin!

5. Chocolatecoin

This is not a cryptocurrency, actually; it is just a coin made out of chocolate. Doesn't that sound amazing? Like, a coin made completely from milk chocolate and wrapped in foil. You could keep one in your purse for months.

Hm... I am receiving word that these already exist. I'd like to announce I will be exiting the world of crypto and investing only in chocolate instead. Thanks!
