‘BananoMiner’ has been established as BANANO mining faucet in early 2019 already. Users can contribute their processing power to medical research through our Folding@Home integration and get subsidized BANANO cryptocurrency as a reward. BananoMiner has been popular since the very beginning, however with BANANO’s recent spike in price and popularity more and more users are joining, and Team BANANO now became the biggest Folding@Home contributor. This is why we are now increasing the ‘mining difficulty’. Read more below.

BANANO is entirely distributed for free in many different ways, through faucets and events, and also through BananoMiner. Thus, the primary purpose of BananoMiner is distributing BANANO, and its great that users can contribute to Science by using it. It however shouldn’t be too profitable since this will attract mining farms and users who systematically set up mining rigs or cloud computing accounts. This is why we now reduce rewards and basically ‘increase difficulty’. Exact details or ratios are as usual not disclosed to avoid any systematic use, however if you like to know more you can join the BANANO Discord and discuss with lots of other users in the channel #banano-mining.

What is Folding@Home?
The Folding@Home project is running since many years and allows everyone to support medical research by contributing their computing power and help fighting many different diseases such as Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, Cancer, Alzheimer’s and many more. More recently the project also started to explicitly calling for everyone’s help to fight Coronavirus and find new therapies against it! Read more here.
It’s simple: You download the Folding@Home client, then your computer runs protein fold simulations in the background (powered by your CPU and/or GPU) which in turn helps researchers fight diseases. In that sense it’s similar to mining, but you’re doing something really useful with your computer power.
What does crypto or BANANO have to do with it?
BANANO is a cryptocurrency distributed for free to everyone since more than 3 years in many different ways. About 2 years ago, we have started to support the Folding@Home project by paying every contributor to Folding@Home who joins the BANANO team through an integration called ‘BananoMiner’. That means we’re rewarding everyone who supports Folding@Home with free cryptocurrency and thereyby use the BananoMiner integration as part of our ongoing free & fair distribution scheme.

How much BANANO will I get?
The more you use your CPU/GPU for protein folding calculations and the more powerful your computer is, and subsequently the more points you accumulate at Folding@Home, the higher your BANANO rewards will be. However, the amount of BANANO per point will fluctuate over time based on different parameters. Thus, it’s hard to predict how much you’ll earn from this exactly. Of note, we’re not aiming here to make this profitable for professional miners or make you rich. Take this merely as an incentive to contribute to something good. If you like to discuss with others about how much they received or have questions join the BANANO discord server and find the #banano-mining chat channel.
