BANANO is distributed entirely for free through airdrops, faucets, and games, in a fun, community-driven and educational atmosphere and has easy-to-use apps.
Few days ago we announced a test round of a new faucet concept: The BANANO Story2Image Faucet — a faucet making the claim process fun while still having effective anti-bot functionality to avoid cheating. The concept: Users had to draw an image from a random sentence provided by the faucet and vote on images from other faucet users. It’s been a great success with lots of creative images, and all rewards have already been paid! Scroll down for a brief recap and some great art creations!
BANANO Story2Image Faucet Round 1 Recap
The results and feedback from this first round have been more than bantastic!
- The faucet ran stably for the whole time, and anti-spam and bot measurements could keep the faucet free from cheaters and other manipulation.
- During the 48 hours test run time we had a total of 523 users who drew a total of 3112 images.
- A total of 55697 in-game points were collected, this includes bonus points and spam/low quality penalties from the image rating algorithm.
- An additional 57400 bonus points were assigned to high-quality images based on manual selection since the algorithm didn’t ensure high rating especially for images submitted later in this faucet round.
- The total 113097 faucet points were already converted to BANANO at a ratio of 1:1 (which is 10x better than we announced) and already paid out earlier today from this address (total of 113097 BANANO): ban_1banjobs588eaypn93spoiyksxspartizcdby9gaayprxsbeztwwumxurx8
- Future rounds might have different faucet points to BANANO ratios. While doing more rounds in the future we’ll finetune the faucet further to ensure fair payouts and spam/bot countermeasures.
- Bonus points mentioned above are the reason why some of you may have received a higher BANANO payout than shown in the Story2Image Faucet scoreboard.
Drawing an image from a simple sentence is primarily having the purpose to distinguish real humans claiming BANANO from bots trying to exploit the faucet. But it’s been really mind-blowing to see how several users managed to create quite some really impressive images just with the faucet drawing tools in their browser. Check out the gallery from this run here.
Thanks everyone for their participation in this test round! Stay tuned for the next round of the BANANO Story2Image Faucet — it’s coming soon!
HUGE thanks also to David who developed the faucet and Kron for invaluable help with image rating data analysis ❤.
