This startup is using geo-tagging and blockchain to fight deforestation in Africa

The My Roots in Africa Project is an initiative of a group called the Most Influential People of African Descent, which seeks to build connection between Africans in Africa and elsewhere around the world through the act of having trees planted in their honor to combat deforestation, especially in West and East Africa. The project will complement the mission of the Great Green Wall and the African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative, both of which also aim to plant large numbers of trees across Africa.
