Another very fruitful month with rapid ongoing BANANO community growth is over. Apart from more streamlined free and fair BANANO distribution, June brought us the Dogecoin airdrop which has finally been wrapped up, and we’ve introduced you to Camo BANANO — BANANO’s privacy layer!
Here’s now the BANANO Monthly Update July 2019 including a brief recap about what happened in June 2019, and also some more general introduction and information for all the new BANANO community members.
What the Fork is BANANO?
For those of you who don’t know BANANO yet: BANANO is a cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin, just a much newer generation). BANANO was forked from the cryptocurrency Nano in April 2018 and thus is powered by DAG technology — here to distrupt the meme economy. Yes, 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.
BANANO is already traded on several exchanges and not listed on CMC yet, however you’ll find current information collated at Coingecko. Despite our increased ongoing distribution the BANANO price has been pretty stable mostly between $0.0013 and $0.0018 within June 2019:
BANANO Faucet Overview
In terms of distribution, we have meanwhile four faucets running permanently — which is a huge improvement compared to earlier times. A short overview:
An instant & self-sustaining faucet, combined with messaging
Browser-based altcoin mining that pays rewards in BANANO
Play captchas to get Banano. A variety of captchas that suit every player
Other faucet and distribution events throughout June 2019:
BANANO Airdrop to Dogecoin holders
Black Monkey faucet game rounds 8, 9, 10 and 11
Meme Faucet faucet game rounds 15, 16 and 17
and many more small-scale giveaways…
CAMO Banano — Introducing BANANO’s Privacy Layer
This one had nothing to do with distribution, but still it it surely is relevant and interesting enough to mention it again: We’ve finally announced Phase 1 of ‘Camo BANANO’ — BANANO’s privacy layer. While for now accounting for confidential and not fully private transactions yet, Camo BANANO will be further developed. Phase 2 of Camo BANANO requires adding a new block type to the BANANO protocol, finally allowing for sum-of-squares private transactions. Keep posted for further updates, and read more here in the full announcement.
BANANO Distribution Recap
June 2019 was another fruitful month in terms of driving BANANO free distribution forward. As mentioned above, we have several constantly running faucets and on top of this several other fun Faucet Games running regularly!
Within June 2019, we’ve distributed a total of ~48 Million BANANO (last month: ~35M)! Just to name the major events, this has happened through faucet payouts (Bananominer, Banano Powerplant, Monkeytalks, Crane Faucet, Meme Faucet, Black Monkey), tipping allowances and celery (rewards) to all core team members, major contributors and moderators (total ~70 people), and of course two airdrops: The BANANO airdrop to Dogecoin holders, and the BANANO airdrop to NANO holders (tx) which is still ongoing. The biggest portion within June with about 15 M BANANO total payout was distributed through our Faucet Game ‘Black Monkey’.
Tipbots as we have 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.
