BANANO Monthly Update #49 (May 2022)

Jun 6, 2022 7 min read

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 2022 summarizes all important happenings in the BANANO ecosphere in April 2022, which was the 49th month since the BANANO main-net launch.

Note: This Monthly Update is about 1 month late, but since I finished it and forgot to ultimately post in time I’ll still put it out there for transparency and completeness. I’ll try to not delay things too much in the future. Sorry and thanks for understanding, bantano 🍌

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 at


Updated data from May 1st, 2022:
Circulating Supply: 1,352,945,770
Burned Total: 1,483,854,443
Total Supply: 1,918,969,225

You can always check the current BANANO supply here on YellowSpyGlass.

BANANO Faucet and Distribution Overview

Aside lots of events and intermittent faucet runs as listed above, we also have several faucets running. A short overview of those faucets can be found below.

An instant & self-sustaining faucet, combined with on-chain messaging

Earn BANANO by contributing CPU/GPU power to medical research via Folding@Home

More ways to get free BANANO and other non official faucets can be found at

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, tipping allowances and celery (rewards) to core team members and contributors, plus 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!
