BANANO Social Media Recap April 2019
Apr 3, 2019 • 6 min read
April already, already since a few days! The BANANO main net has started 1 year ago and was celebrated with a massive party on April 1st. We have lots of cool new stuff including on-chain messaging (more in this Publish0x article) and BANANO is constantly growing and expanding! Now here’s finally the BANANO monthly social media channel recap for April 2019. It’s a few days late this month due to the focus on other events within the last days, but it’s a good thing to catch up. All numbers provided below are from April 1st though, and this is also a good opportunity to include some updates on what actually happened on April 1st.
Some information upfront: Our Medium Blog was suspended in the last few days due to unknown reasons and is meanwhile back. We’ll keep publishing all major articles and announcements at both Medium and Publish0x for now, while all announcements will be pushed to our Publish0x blog.
You missed the party on April 1st? Here’s what happened in brief:
You might have heard about the massive party we had on April 1st. It wasn’t only April 1st, it also was the BANANO main net anniversary. You might have read in this article that we had a big release of Kalium, our mobile wallet, and also on-chain messaging with MonkeyTalks on this day. But there was much more happening later that day. Since it was April 1st, and April fools is a popular thing, there was some confusion and aftermath, and a lot of discussion, about it. What you need to know is the following:
Those things have really happened and are true:
1) A coin burn of 300 Million BANANO (link).
2) Representatives now need ~3M BANANO in voting weight in order to be able to participate in voting (“rebroadcasting representative”).
3) An airdrop of 888 BANANO has happened to all Kalium users who have actually used the mobile wallet for the last 20 days before it. Those 888 BANANO could be sent back as implied in our last announcement, which led to a doubling of the amount being sent back to the user in turn. If you have questions about this come to our Discord server and check the #bannouncement channel for details
Furthermore, also a meme market was announced (which most likely won’t happen but got quite some attention here at r/cryptocurrency) and also a small airdrop to many users waiting for the DOGECOIN airdrop has happened, but this was a joke, and it’s not over. ETA for the real DOGECOIN airdrop is still unclear unfortunately.
That’s basically it, many more exciting things to come soon. Now to the social media recap of April 2019:
What’s new? BANANO goes even more international
BANANO communities are still growing fine, and the recent release of the BANANO Miner Faucet and BANANO’s win of the Meme of the Year Award have not only pushed the BANANO price a bit but also resulted in lots of new community members from China, Turkey and other countries! Welcome everyone! Read more about this here.
Subsequently our Discord server has now a Chinese channel, and our brand-new Turkish Telegram group is just a few days old but already has 141 members! Also, we now have a new publication at Medium, BANANO International, which collects non-English articles, written by our community members. Currently you’ll find some BANANO articles there in Portugues, Spanish and Italian. If you like to write articles explaining BANANO or translating current news & developments, feel free to submit them to BANANO International, but please make sure they are top notch quality :)
Meanwhile, BANANO also has several inofficial channels made by Chinese community members at Wechat and QQ, maybe more about those next month, but here’s already the link to our brand-new official WeChat group, moderated by our Chinese Community Ambassador, Snappadoodle ❤:

If you don’t know Publish0x yet, it is a crypto agnostic platform rewarding both writers and readers. It’s an interesting concept and got us already lots of attention, let’s see where this goes ;) For example, our recent BANANO Miner announcement got us 2400 views in just few days, and many of those readers are new to BANANO:
