BANANO Monthly Update #27 (July 2020)
Jul 3, 2020 • 9 min read
BANANO is now in its third year and going quite strong despite all the 2020 craziness. Now it’s July already, meaning it’s time for another freshly pressed 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 and community growth.
This BANANO Monthly Update July 2020 summarizes all important happenings in the BANANO ecosphere in June 2020, which already was the 27th month since the BANANO main-net launch.
BANANO To Be Listed on HitBTC Exchange!
This is truly a major achievement for the BANANO community: BANANO was nominated in a Community Vote from HitBTC exchange at Twitter — and won it, meaning BANANO will be listed on HitBTC exchange! Thanks everyone for your votes and support! This was not the first community vote win of the BANANO community, however this will be BANANO’s biggest exchange listing so far.

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 Coinmarketcap) and an overview about all current exchanges here.
Updated data from July 1st, 2020:
Circulating Supply: 1,058,481,427
Burned Total: 504,323,973
Total Supply: 2,898,499,695
You can always check current supply and burn details through our supply API.
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
Provide proof-of-work for Nano and Banano services, get BANANO reward
Complete bounties or microtasks called ‘BananoJobs’ — get paid in BANANO
BANANO’s highly popular faucet game ‘Black Monkey’ is currently running irregularly in focused 24 hour events, keep your eyes open for announcements!
New faucets and modifications will follow over time, 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 June 2020, we’ve freely distributed a total of ~20 Million BANANO (May: 21 Million; April 2020: 35 Million; March 2020: 35 Million; February 2020: 26 Million). Just to name the major events, this has happened through faucet payouts (Black Monkey, Bananominer, Powerplant, Monkeytalks, BoomPow), ViteX Airdrop, 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!
Example Twitter/Telegram Tipbot: In total, since the Tipbot was started in Mid April 2019 until July 1, 2020, more than 39 Million BANANO were tipped in more than 318,000 transactions, only at Twitter and Telegram!
