BANANO Monthly Update #37 (May 2021). Special: BANANO Bday & 973M BAN Burn Recap!

May 26, 2021 8 min read

BANANO is 100% freely distributed since April 2018 and growing steadily since then. BANANO 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 May 2021 summarizes all important happenings in the BANANO ecosphere in April 2021, which was the 37th month since the BANANO main-net launch.

Note: Similarly to the last monthly update, this one is a little delayed, but things have been so active, busy, crazy and awesome in the BANANO ecosystem lately, with so many new users joining, that this got delayed again. Well, it still is good to have complete records about BANANO growth, important metrics and distribution over time, so I’ll still get it out for reference. Obviously I’ll try to get future monthly updates out more timely. Cheers, bantano ❤

Special: April 1st Birthday Party and (YUGE!) Burn Recap

If you followed the invitation to the BANANO Birthday event at the BANANO Discord on April 1st, 2021, you know what happened and how crazy it was. If you missed it or joined after this, here’s a short recap of what happened:

As usual for BANANO Discord paprties, we had quite some nice rains, just two examples here:

One of the co-founders, renesq, had the honor to announce an April Fools joke ;)

We had a suprise Black Monkey Faucet game round, with quite high rewards. This round was anounced on short notice, not announced elsewhere and we did not promise any ratio upfront:

cryptomonKeys released a commemorative NFT that was freely claimable:

BANANO was Altcoin of the day at r/altcoin:

The BANANO team did a very well attented AMA session at the r/AltStreetBets subreddit:

And, of course, the Team burned some coins which has been a tradition on April 1st BANANO Bday parties:

On April 1st, 2019, we burned 300 Million BAN

On April 1st, 2020, we burned 191,919,191 BAN

On April 1st, 2021, we burned 973,801,445.86 BAN (tx link here; valued 13.8 Million USD at the time) down to a total of 1,919,445,568 BANANO (new BANANO total supply).

This means that more than 63% of the BANANO supply is now circulating/distributed (circulating Supply: 1,222,959,123 BAN)

Thanks everyone who was part of this awesome party, it’s safe to say it was the most exciting one to date :hng:

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.


Updated data from May 1st, 2021:
Circulating Supply: 1,222,959,123
Burned Total: 1,483,378,100
Total Supply: 1,919,445,568

You can always check the current BANANO supply via this API.

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.

BANANO is distributed through faucet payouts (Bananominer, Powerplant, Monkeytalks, BoomPow), BananoJobs, VITE airdrop, tipping allowances and celery (rewards) to all core team members, major contributors and moderators, and we have regular events and contests organized by the core team or the community.

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 March 1, 2021, more than 47 Million BANANO were tipped in more than 537,000 transactions, only at Twitter and Telegram!
