Announcing BANANOjs 2.0.5 — JavaScript Utilities for BANANO (and now NANO!)

May 14, 2020 3 min read

The cryptocurrency BANANO is always good for surprise news and tech innovation, and it’s often underestimated since many think it’s ‘just another meme coin’. Key to its growing success is next-generation tech paired with crypto education, easy and intuitive wallets and a highly welcoming and engaged community. This time, we have news for developers building software or services in the BANANO/NANO ecosystem.

BANANO was forked from NANO in 2018, but tech development by the BANANO team also goes back to NANO sometimes. For example, BANANO’s mobile wallet ‘Kalium’ was the basis for the now most popular Nano wallet ‘Natrium’. Now, BANANOjs and soon also CAMO BANANO— BANANO’s privacy layer — are coming back to Nano!

Announcing BANANOjs 2.0.5

BANANOjs is a JavaScript utility library for the cryptocurrency BANANO, developed by on of our core developers, Coranos. BANANOjs has functions applicable to Camo BANANO (BANANO’s privacy layer) and the newest release (version 2.0.5) now also has added support for the cryptocurrency NANO!

BANANOjs can be used to convert seeds to public keys, sign blocks, and more. BANANOjs is released under MIT license and open to use for everyone, for every purpose (though it’s not guaranteed to be suitable for any purpose of course).

It also has Camo BANANO functions, meaning any developer can send and receive transactions using the Camo BANANO L2 protocol, without doing this manually by using the Camo BANANO website.

Now, BANANOjs also comes with NANO support, and containing both server side and client side implementations! for server side

Also just out recently: BananoPy

Since thematically somewhat related we also would like to give a shout-out to BananoPy at this occasion. BananoPy is an all-in-one-library for communicating with Banano/Nano, created by the community member kirby1997. Find it here at Github.
This library was written with node version 18 in mind. Some functions will work with later node versions however some might require extra parameters.
Pull requests are welcome as due to the number of functions written (100+), not all have been tested fully.
