By banano | Banano | 13 Sep 2021

BANANO is a DAG-based cryptocurrency with easy-to-use apps, distributed entirely for free through airdrops, faucets, and games. All happening in a fun, community-driven, meme-rich, and educational atmosphere. The BANANO community project cryptomonKeys started already almost a year ago with free distribution of BANANO-themed NFTs! Here’s another update from the project, including an invitation to its first anniversary party on September 19th!


Join us to celebrate our first anniversary!

It’s almost one year already! It’s been lots of fun with you all! Make sure you join our Discord and check in on Sep 19th — we’ll have a big party and some bantastic surprise news over the day! See you there!

monKeymiles: Earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by playing Upland

cryptomonKeys is about making free NFT distribution fun, as a community and by connecting with other NFT/blockchain projects. Already several weeks ago, we started to reward Upland players with cryptomonKeys NFTs for visiting specific properties, similar to monKeymining. This has been in a beta stage in collaboration with the MetaForce comics project, initiated by Recourier. After positive feedback we’re now rebranding this to monKeymiles and will regularly drop cryptomonKeys NFTs to players who visit cryptomonKeys Upland properties.


Getting Started

  • If you are new to this, sign up for Upland here
  • Since Upland is not on the WAX blockchain, it is essential that you fill out this form once so we know where to send your rewards
  • Make sure to join our Discord (channel #monkeymiles) for discussion with other players and support, and to not miss updates!
  • Now, simply visit one of the properties listed on this website in the game with your explorer. The more often you visit any of those, the higher your chance on cryptomonKeys NFT drops, which will be sent out roughly every 2–3 weeks.

You can find up-to-date details and a history of sent rewards always at


monKeymining: Earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by playing Alien Worlds

In January 2021, we announced monKeymining: Earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by playing the game AlienWorlds! This has led to lots of ongoing attention and excitement and loads of new users joining the community and we meanwhile sent over 33k cryptomonKeys NFTs to miners and stakers! Here’s an update including cycle 18+19 mining and staking rewards that were sent out today!


You can earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by playing the play-to-earn NFT-based game Alien Worlds. You currently can earn cryptomonKeys NFTs by mining or by staking, just by playing the game, on top of the regular in-game rewards!


NOTE: After the current monKeymining cycle 20 has ended (Sep 19th), we will pause regular monKeymining rewards until further notice and review this part of our current cryptomonKeys distribution scheme. monKeymining (including staking rewards) may resume after we made our mind in a modified form, depending on various aspects including how Alien Worlds as game will evolve and be updated. In the meantime we will still have Alien Worlds based community events at our discord as before. Stay tuned for updates.

If you have any questions, find all details here, and join our discord and ask in the channel #monkeymining for help. Lots of users are discussing there all the time. Updates and current status (as well as helpful links) can always be found at
