BANANO Monthly Update #23 (March 2020)
Mar 7, 2020 • 9 min read
Time for another monthly update from the BANANO ecosystem! The idea of those monthly updates is to keep our community informed, provide a good starting point for new people looking at the project, and to be transparent about BANANO’s ongoing distribution activities. This BANANO Monthly Update March 2020 summarizes all important happenings in the BANANO ecosphere in February 2020, which already was the 23th month since the BANANO main-net launch.
Distribution: 1 Billion+ BANANO Circulating Supply!
Just few days ago, BANANO crossed a total of 1 Billion $BAN being in circulation! At the time of writing, those BAN were held by more than 65,000 accounts.

BANANO Airdrop to all Publish0x Users
BANANO is publishing all news and updates both at Medium and Publish0x. While Medium is a more classical way to publish project updates and a broader platform, Publish0x is a crypto-agnostic platform rewarding both writers and readers with free cryptocurrency. To celebrate the BANANO blog hitting 1000 Followers, we airdropped 100k BANANO to Publish0x users!

BANANO Airdrop to all Uptrennd Users
Uptrennd is another crypto-focused platform (conceptually similar to Reddit) which rewards users with free crypto. After the big success of the Publish0x airdrop above, we executed a 100k BANANO airdrop to Uptrennd users as well! Also, BANANO succeeded in a community vote at Uptrennd last month and won a free marketing package!

What the Fork is BANANO?
For those of you who don’t know BANANO yet: BANANO is a cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin or Ethereum, 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. You’ll find current information collated at Coingecko and an overview about all current exchanges here.

BANANO Faucet and Distribution Overview
Aside lots of events and intermittent faucet runs as listed above, we still have several faucets running permanently since quite a while, quick overview here:
An instant & self-sustaining faucet, combined with messaging
Earn BANANO by contributing CPU/GPU power to medical research via [email protected]
Browser-based altcoin mining that pays rewards in BANANO
Also, Banano BoomPow basically is yet another constantly running faucet that was added more recently.
New faucets and modifications will follow soon, and adjustments might always be made to ensure that BANANO’s free distribution stays fair, and also doesn’t make our community members too dependent on BANANO earnings.
Within January 2020, we’ve freely distributed a total of ~26 Million BANANO (January 2020: 35 Million; December 2019: 27 Million; November: 37M; October: 16 Million; September: 16M; August: 60M; July: 47M; June: 48M; May: 35M). Just to name the major events, this has happened through faucet payouts (Black Monkey, Bananominer, Powerplant, Monkeytalks, BoomPow), the airdrop to Ataix users, tipping allowances and celery (rewards) to all core team members, major contributors and moderators.
BANANO Tipbots as we use 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!
Sidenote: Our Twitter Tipbot account unfortunately was suspended recently, but it’s meanwhile back with a new Twitter handle and your balances are all safu, check it out here: @bantipbot.
Example Twitter/Telegram Tipbot: In total, since the Tipbot was started in Mid April 2019 until March 1, 2020, more than 31 Million BANANO with a total current value of $12768 were tipped in more than 231,000 transactions, only at Twitter and Telegram!
