Let’s all take a moment and appreciate that these are hard times for almost everyone. Volatile markets, banks printing money like crazy, and the Coronavirus pandemic is spreading. Finally, everyone wonders what they could do against all this. The answer is simple: Let’s ALL team up and support science in fighting the COVID-19 virus! It’s super easy. The only thing you need is any computer and few minutes of your time! Read below how it works.
Let’s all team up and fight Coronavirus!
In brief, you will support the Folding@Home project with your computer power to fight Coronavirus, and we pay you a reward for doing so.
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. Now, the project is 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 cryptocurrency 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 2 years in many different ways. About 1 year 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. Read more about BANANO below.
Also, everyone please share this article with your friends and help them get started as well! Everyone counts! Let’s do it!
We’ll shortly announce a bounty program on top of this rewarding everyone who spreads the word about BananoMiner, so make sure to note what you did, you’ll be able to claim this bounty also in retrospect. Stay tuned for announcements!

For more questions and support, visit the BANANO Chat Server at chat.banano.cc. You will also find more information on bananominer.com.

How much crypto rewards 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, and you’ll not get rich based on current prices. 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-miner chat channel.
