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:, and you’ll find help getting started at

BANANO is already traded on several exchanges and not listed on CMC yet, however you’ll find current information collated at Coingecko and an overview about all current exchanges here. Despite our increased ongoing distribution the BANANO price has been still pretty stable mostly between $0.0013 and $0.0018 within July 2019:

BANANO Distribution Recap

July 2019 was another fruitful month in terms of driving BANANO free distribution forward:

Within July, we’ve freely distributed a total of ~47 Million BANANO (July: 48M; June: 35M)! Just to name the major events, this has happened through faucet payouts (Bananominer, Powerplant, Monkeytalks, Crane Faucet, Meme Faucet, Black Monkey), tipping allowances and celery (rewards) to all core team members, major contributors and moderators (total ~80–90 people), and of course through the BANANO airdrop to NANO holders (tx) which is still ongoing. The biggest portion within July with about 23M BANANO total payout was distributed through our Faucet Game ‘Black Monkey’.

Tipbots as we have 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!

In July 2019 alone more than 5.4 M BANANO (June: 2.7M; May: 815k) with a total current value of $7867 (June: $4753; May: $1171) were tipped in more than 20k transactions (June: 17k; May: 16k) through our Twitter/Telegram tipbot!

In total, since the Tipbot was started in Mid April 2019, more than 9 Million BANANO with a total current value of $13272 were tipped in more than 60,000 transactions, only at Twitter and Telegram!
