Jun 5, 2023 4 min read

Check below for a NFT airdrop and a cryptomonKeys Stack design contest!

Second wBANniversary

Just like last year, I can't believe how quickly this year has passed!

It's time, again, to make a short recap of what happened those last twelve months:

An interesting statistic as well: more than 90M wBAN total supply (all networks included), compared to 52M last year!
That's a bit more than 6% of BAN total supply.

Birthday Gift

Users who unwrapped at least once (whatever the bridge network) can claim this NFT (snapshot taken on Jun 5, 2023 around 5PM UTC):

wBAN to the moon for 2y birthday

If you unwrapped on more than 1 network, you’ll get 2 of those NFTs, otherwise only 1.

No new mints will be done for this NFT.
Don’t forget to claim your airdrop within the next 60 days!

Details of the claimable airdrop:

  • 1323 users unwrapped once, they will get 1 NFT each
  • 309 users unwrapped on at least 2 networks, they will get 2 NFTs each

Top Contributors Gift

Some monkeys were deeply involved in contributing to wBAN over the past two years.
Now's the time to showcase them!

Iazid, Majic, Yekta, WhiteFlag and Oops will receive this special NFT:

This NFT will be minted in limited quantities over time for these special monkeys.
Thanks for helping shape wBAN for the greater good!

Where to find, claim & trade these NFTS?

To easily find all your current NFT and to claim the ones you’ve been airdropped, you can go to this wBAN page when connected to Polygon network: wrap.banano.cc/nft

wBAN NFTs page showcasing airdrop

If you have the yellow box with the “Grab Them” button, you are eligible for the airdrop.

You will need a very small amount of MATIC to claim them. Ask in #wrapped-banano channel in the Discord Server for a monkey willing to trade some BAN for MATIC if you need.

You can trade all the NFTs in OpenSea: https://opensea.io/collection/wban

If you own a NFT you can decide to sell it and make a listing with a price of your choosing.

If you are interested in a NFT, you can make offers to those having it or buy from available listings. If you don’t have ETH or USDC on Polygon, you can wrap some BAN and swap them through wBAN swaps page.

What is wBAN?

wBAN is short for Wrapped Banano. The main idea is that you wrap your Banano as wBAN tokens, and unwrap wBAN tokens back to Banano crypto. This allows you to use a representation of Banano on other networks! wBAN is currently available on the Ethereum Mainnet, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon, Fantom and Arbitrum. See wBAN FAQ for more details.

wBAN was created to connect Banano to the wider smart-contracts / DeFi ecosystem. We love seeing monkeys learning and participating in DeFi!

What the Fork is Banano?

Banano is a cryptocurrency powered by DAG technology disrupting the meme economy. Banano has feeless and near-instant transactions, free & fair distribution, a highly active community, and active technical development!
