What the Fork is BANANO?

For those 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 is powered by DAG technology — here to disrupt the meme economy. BANANO has memes, 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. It’s much more than just another meme-coin (and especially so much more than yet another random dog-themed token) for sure. You don’t have to take our word for it, you should find out more and see it with your own eyes👀.

Another key feature: 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 Faucet and Distribution Overview

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

BananoMiner: 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 and Reddit 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!

There are always new developments, fun distribution events, giveaways and other happenings such as innovative airdrops, new faucets and faucet games, more educational content and contests, new wrapped Banano on probably even more chains, and we are still working on creating a new version of a play2earn Banano Runner (yeah we know it’s like we’re saying this since really forever, but we’re confident it’s gonna come eventually, no worries).
