BANANO! 2 Years already! It’s crazy times not only in the crypto world — here’s what this is about:
The BANANO main-net was launched almost 2 years ago, on April 1st, 2018. It’s incredible how much bantastic stuff has happened since then, and how well the BANANO ecosystem has evolved incredibly over time considering the project didn’t raise money with an ICO or similar but instead focused on 100% free distribution of coins, with more fairness than basically any other crypto project ever before.
Before now coming to the BANANO highlights of the last two years, here’s a quick announcement:
Make sure to visit the BANANO Discord Chat server (which is the true center of the project since the very beginning) on April 1st — we’ll have a big bday party with rains and suprise events, a bantastic BANANO Bday Radio Show and even more fun than usual on that specific historic day. Better be there to see live what’s going on and not miss out on maybe even a final YUGE surprise similar to last year ;)
BANANO is never resting. Even in 2 years of one of the worst crypto bear markets ever, the BANANO community never slowed down in growing while distributing rich-in-potassium BAN currency for free. Finally, here’s a recap summarizing all the highlights and happenings over the last two years, with uniquely free & fair cryptocurrency distribution through the beautiful crypto experiment we call BANANO ❤
Two years of BANANO — A Recap of all the Highlights
At the very beginning in April 2018, BANANO started out of nothing. Basically their only presence was at Discord and Reddit. Read up how the BANANO ecosystem has evolved over time below. If you want to see all the news, check out news.banano.how.
And of course, even before the mainnet launch, one of the BANANO founders, renesq, did a feasibility study with pretty impressive results:
Then, it all really took off on April 1, 2018:
Forked from NANO: The BANANO Mainnet Goes Live

By the way, HowToBANANO.info was born on May 5th, 2018 and is still going on, being the first BANANO fan site.
Sneak Peek at monKeys — BANANO’s Visual Account Representatives:
Also, the BANANO airdrop to NANO holders was finally sent, even though the unorthodox fairness element implemented didn’t make everyone happy ;)
Banano Runner 24 hour event: Another round of BANANO Runner was happening in July 2018. Sadly, this was the last round of Banano Runner since then due to exploits/cheaters. We’re still evaluating possible revivals since then, but making fun AND unbottable games is really hard, and priority is to keep BANANO distribution fair.
Some other highlights from July 2018:
Surely one of the best wallets ever was beta released in August 2018: Kalium!
Some other hightlights from August 2018:
It’s been even more awesome: One of the best (BANANO) memes ever created: Premiere of “Sell me this shitcoin”
The BANANO Meme Faucet premiered and should run for many more rounds:
Wanna refill or check? Here’s the wallet.
Also, Black Monkey, BANANO's popular faucet game by just_dmitry premiered in December 2018 already for first test rounds. Meanwhile, it's running still regularly and we can look back at already 33 completed faucet game rounds!
And, BANANO was included in Delta Direct!
And: Kalium 2.0 released!
This should at least mentioned once: Natrium, meanwhile one of the most popular NANO wallets created by the BANANO core team members yekta and bbedward, was updated to 2.0 this month!
Meanwhile, BananoBet Reached 15 Million Bets!
The early April BANANO birthday update brought quite some news! Read it up here:
BANANO April 1 Update: Kalium Release & MonkeyTalks On-Chain Messaging Announcement
Yes, it was an awesome party with quite some suprises. Details here.
In May, the BANANO community won the qTrade.io exchange listing…
In June 2019, we meanwhile had very regular rounds of the BANANO Memefaucet and also a new established faucet game, Black Monkey!
Meanwhile, while we have discontinued several faucets due to different reasons, Black Monkey turned out to be resistant to cheaters, and still fun enough for people to use it. Thus, it’s still running! Stay tuned for future round announcements!
You might even see an update on that topic quite soon, stay tuned!
BANANO Finally Released the Legendary Yellowpaper!
Freshly released: BoomPoW (bPow), BANANO’s peel of the Distributed Proof of Work System (DPoW) created by members of the Nano community. The aim is to provide reliable, fast proof of work to not only BANANO apps and services, but also to NANO apps and services. Rewards for contributing to this are paid in BANANO, meaning BoomPow is part of BANANO distribution! Full Announcement
In October, we had a great Halloween party, overall lots of contests, faucet game rounds and giveaways as usual…
…and some minor incidents:
BANANO introduced Pippin, a new developer wallet that gives you external key management and incredibly high performance right out of the box, making integrations and development in the BANANO (and Nano) ecosphere much easier!
Another win for the BANANO community, another exchange listing! This time, at Atomars.com:
Just finished: The second BANANO Airdrop to All Vite Wallet Users
Also, a reminder that everyone can help fight various diseases including Coronavirus/COVID-19 while getting rewarded in BANANO — Through BANANO Miner!
April 2020 — And that’s where we are now!
You made it! Long article? Yes, it’s really just been the highlights ;)
The BANANO future is bright-yellowish, many community members BUIDL in the BANANO ecosphere during their free time, and our ongoing free and fair BANANO distribution will likely not end that soon. Otherwise we’ll stay true to the attitude to not make big promises as many ICOs in 2018 that raised millions and couldn’t (or didn’t want to) keep their promises at the end. You’ll find the essence in our roadmap on banano.cc if you’re interested ;)
Now, if it is April 1 today, come over to the BANANO Bday Party at our Discord! And even if it’s not, you’re still very welcome there, we have fun all the time!
I scrolled too fast, what’s BANANO again?
