Another fresh and fruitful month with rapid growth, ongoing BANANO community growth and quite some major news is over. Here’s now the all-complete BANANO Monthly Update September 2019, including a recap about what happened in August.

Apart from streamlined free and fair BANANO distribution, August brought us lots of exciting news:

BANANO Yellowpaper released!

BananoJobs is Here!

BananoJobs is a simple platform for microtasks and bounties using BANANO. It started quite recently, and it was unfortunate timing that the BANANO Reddit Tipbot had issues exactly when it was launched (all fixed now!), but meanwhile it’s already quite active and BANANO is used daily for microtasks! Join today: Direct link | Full Announcement

Banano Bites has just started!

We have launched a new, educational video series called BANANO Bites. This series will consist of educational videos about BANANO and BANANO related products & technologies. Expect more episodes soon, and watch the first one below! Subscribe for Updates | Full Announcement

Even more news from August 2019

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: banano.cc, and you’ll find help getting started at banano.how.

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. The BANANO price has moved between $0.0008 and $0.0015 within August 2019 with a tendency as pretty much as most other projects within this bear market.

BANANO Distribution Recap

August 2019 was another very fruitful month in terms of driving BANANO free distribution forward. As you’ll see below, we actually have distributed way more total BANANO in August compared to previous months. We have paused our popular faucet games Meme Faucet and Black Monkey for the second half of August, but no worries, we’ll come back soon with those or maybe even new faucet games, possibly including some modifications.

Within August, we’ve freely distributed a total of ~61 Million BANANO (July: 47M; June: 48M; May: 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 ~90–100 people), and of course through the airdrop to qTrade users, and the BANANO airdrop to NANO holders (tx) which is still ongoing. The biggest portion within July with ~28 M BANANO total payout was distributed through our Faucet Game ‘Black Monkey’.

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!

In August 2019 alone more than 6 M BANANO (August: 5.4 M; June: 2.7M; May: 815k) with a total current value of ~$5400 (Aug: $7867; June: $4753; May: $1171) were tipped in more than 26k transactions (Aug: 20k; June: 17k; May: 16k) through our Twitter/Telegram tipbot!

In total, since the Tipbot was started in Mid April 2019, more than 15.6 Million BANANO with a total current value of $13252 were tipped in more than 86,000 transactions, only at Twitter and Telegram!
