BANANO is 100% freely distributed since April 2018 and growing steadily since then. BANANO has feeless transactions, so don’t worry about gas fees or transaction fees ever again! Now it’s time for another fresh Monthly Update from the BANANO ecosystem! The idea of those monthly updates is to keep our community informed, provide a good starting point for new people looking at the project, and to be transparent about BANANO’s ongoing distribution activities and community growth.
This BANANO Monthly Update April 2021 summarizes all important happenings in the BANANO ecosphere in March 2021, which was the 36th month since the BANANO main-net launch.
Note: You might realize that this monthly update is coming hilariously late. It was actually almost done in April but then things got so active, busy, crazy and awesome in the BANANO ecosystem with so many new users joining that this got delayed quite a lot. Well, it still is good to have complete records about BANANO growth, important metrics and distribution over time, so I’ll still get it out for reference. Obviously I’ll try to get future monthly updates out more timely. Cheers, bantano ❤

What the Fork is BANANO?
For those of you who don’t know BANANO yet: BANANO is a cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin or Ethereum, just a much newer generation). BANANO was forked from the cryptocurrency Nano in April 2018 and thus is powered by DAG technology — here to disrupt the meme economy. BANANO has memes, and also feeless and near-instant transactions, a highly active community, and active technical development! The BANANO community doesn’t take themselves too seriously, but we’re here for the long run and we enjoy what we do.
On top of this, BANANO is super easy to use. Just try our slick mobile wallet called Kalium and get your first free $BANANO from one of our faucets within minutes! Also, BANANO has a free ongoing distribution through innovative faucet games. You can find more details on our official website: banano.cc, and you’ll find help getting started at banano.how.
Updated data from April 1st, 2021:
Circulating Supply: 1,215,834,704
Burned Total: 1,483,377,519
Total Supply: 1,919,446,149
You can always check current numbers via this BANANO supply API.
Values here are already incuding the massive burn on the BANANO party on April 1st, 2021. Some more details around this will be included in the BANANO Monthly Update 37 (May 2021).
BANANO Faucet and Distribution Overview
Aside lots of events and intermittent faucet runs as listed above, we also have several faucets running. A short overview of those faucets can be found below.
An instant & self-sustaining faucet, combined with on-chain messaging
Earn BANANO by contributing CPU/GPU power to medical research via Folding@Home

More ways to get free BANANO summarized at banano.how
New faucets and modifications of current ones will follow over time, and adjustments might always be made to ensure that BANANO’s free distribution stays fair, and also doesn’t make our community members too dependent on BANANO earnings.
BANANO is distributed through faucet payouts (Bananominer, Powerplant, Monkeytalks, BoomPow), BananoJobs, VITE airdrop, tipping allowances and celery (rewards) to all core team members, major contributors and moderators, and we have regular events and contests organized by the core team or the community.
BANANO Tipbots as we use them at Discord, Reddit, Telegram and Twitter are instrumental for showing newly joining members how easy-to-use and fast BANANO truly is, and to actually have everyone use BANANO for what it’s made for — tipping others!
Example Twitter/Telegram Tipbot: In total, since the Tipbot was started in Mid April 2019 until March 1, 2021, more than 47 Million BANANO were tipped in more than 527,000 transactions, only at Twitter and Telegram!
