BANANO Monthly Update #34 (February 2021)

Feb 28, 2021 7 min read

BANANO is 100% freely distributed since April 2018 and growing steadily since then. BANANO and has feeless transactions, so don’t worry about gas fees or transaction fees ever again! Now it’s time for another fresh 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 February 2021 summarizes all important happenings in the BANANO ecosphere in January 2021, which was the 34th month since the BANANO main-net launch.

Note: Those Monthly Updates normally come early in the month, this month (again) was just too much stuff ongoing somehow so it’s coming a little later this time, and in a somewhat shorter format. Monthly update March 2021 to be finally expected on time again :)

BANANO News from January 2021 (newest first)

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 disrupt the meme economy. 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:, and you’ll find help getting started at

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.

New faucets and modifications of current ones 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 January 2021, we’ve freely distributed a total of ~16 Million BANANO . Just to name the major events, this has happened through faucet payouts (Bananominer, Powerplant, Monkeytalks, BoomPow), BananoJobs, VITE 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 February 1, 2021, more than 46 Million BANANO were tipped in more than 480,000 transactions, only at Twitter and Telegram!
