Black Monkey Round 2 has ended and all rewards meanwhile have been paid (Source).
The faucet game MonKey Match will have another $BANANO distribution round (500k Banano) starting on March 2nd (source: discord).
Yes, you heard it right, there is a $BANANO meme faucet, and here’s how to use it to earn Banano.
In this faucet, you’ll need to describe and identify memes (and other images) to prove you are human. So it’s basically proof of (meme-)work. This faucet is aiming to make sure bots or cheaters have no chance, and only real people will earn precious Banano through a fair distribution. Find other options to get free Banano at banano.how.
If you don’t have a Banano address yet or don’t know Banano yet, get help getting started at https://banano.how first.
In the future, whenever coming back you can login with your Banano address, so remember which Banano address you used to register.
Next, the Faucet rules pop up. Make sure to read them. If you try to spam or abuse this faucet you’ll be blocked and get no Banano. All submissions are manually checked by humans, so don’t try to get away with sloppy or inappropriate image descriptions, or any kind of spam.
Then you get started, and you will see two different kinds of options:
As below, you sometimes have to select the correct description. You have 60 seconds to chose. If all four answers are incorrect, click “Report”. Otherwise click “Submit answer“:
You will then see images that need a description, and for this you will get Banano. Just describe what you see:
That’s it, just keep going, and after your submissions have been checked you’ll get your Banano directly sent to your address.
Surely not as exciting as Banano Runner (rumors say it might come back soon), but for now at least it is an ongoing faucet!

Welcome to the fourth general update about Banano. Come back regularly to not miss new BANANO developments!
When Banano Runner and payment?
The fourth runner event happened on July 4/5 (24 hours) with an improved new Banano Runner version 4.2. Great job @mitchellcairns! The payments for this are still outstanding since thedevs carefully check for bots, but no worries, everyone will receive their payments as usual. It still appears unclear if there will be regular schedule for the Banano Runner faucet game in the future, and if payments will be 1:1 or not.
Monkey Match – another official Banano Faucet game
Coranos has further optimized Monkey Match, and on July 5/6 there was another round for this official Banano Faucet game where you could get free Banano. There surely will be more in the near future, so keep your eyes open.
General comment on faucet games since I saw some people complain: Keep in mind that these faucet games in general must cost you time and don’t make you rich overnight. Still surely a much nicer way to distribute a cryptocurrency for free when compared to basically all other faucets or airdrops. So these games are not primarily made for you to have lots of fun, but to ensure a fair and equal distribution. People in Venezuela or other poor countries will earn enough to make their living with these games, while for most others it is not profitable to play these games. If you like your time more than those games, consider rather buying some Banano directly. 😉
Bananobet.com is now online – with a daily faucet!
How To Buy Banano and the current price
Banano has not been listed at a bigger exchange yet, mainly because it is not that distributed that much. That means there will be faucet games and giveaways to fix this in the intermediate run, as it was announced regularly. However, you can buy Banano for Nano at the discord, but prices have recently gone up quite a bit. Current prize is 2661.66 BAN : 1 NANO.
@ironbfly has posted a nice summary of how to buy Banano through the discord escrow bot at #jungle-bazaar. Check it out if you have any questions.
Otherwise Banano was recently also listed on the small South American Exchange troca.ninja and has a BTC and a TNJ trading pair. I tested it with a small amount and withdrew successfully. However, be careful 😉
The Banano volume at the discord recently also has seen some peaks, with more than 2000 Nano volume in 24 hours a few days ago. Thanks @beardless duck for the screenshot:
Banano Minecraft Server online!
@Ryo Akio created a banano minecraft server and added a Banano tipbot to it. Check it out if you like, it is quite fun. See all the action on the server with a dynamic live map shown at http://banano.cash.
Instructions to getting started: Start Minecraft (multiplayer, server IP: banano.cash). When you first enter, you will set a password for your in-game Banano wallet. Open the chatbox with
t and type
/register followed by your wallet password twice (in one line). Every time you join the server, you’ll have to
/login with your password then. Type
/balance to see your address and balance/pay player amount to pay another player/withdraw address amount to withdraw Banano. If you are using an offline client (not premium account) don’t use a premium nickname. If you use a premium nickname you will see a error when you try to join the server. There also is a channel at the discord, #minecraft, which is synced with the in-game chat. You also can ask questions there.
Some great in-game Banano art by @joinity:
Banano Talent Contest
There is a Banano Talent Contest going on, organized by Coranos. See more details below and here.
FIFA World Cup betting game – BananoCup!
The World Cup and the BananoCup WINNER betting game will finally come to an end tomorrow! Everyone could tip the FIFA World Cup winning team and win lots of Banano! More information and all rules and detailed tipstats of the game can still be found here on this website. Winnings will be paid out tomorrow after the game. The final pot was 17856 Banano! @BroDyaGa#4061 will be the overall winner and get 40% of the pot if Croatia wins, @Pedro Perez#6524 if France wins. Good luck both! All others who have tipped correctly will share 60% of the pot.
r/bananocoin now has 2252 subscribers, the discord has 10852 members, @bananocoin has 2114 followers and the Banano Republic telegram group has 169 members. Banano is currently at block 1,758,883.
Feedback from you!?
If you think any event, link, thought or whatsoever other bantastic thing should be included in Banano Recap #5 please just comment below or message me at the discord. Same when you have other comments or thoughts about this recap!
Previous Bantastic Banano Recaps:
Randomizer just uploaded a sneak peek video at Youtube that shows a 3D monkey generation, and how the monKey will look in future Banano runner games.
Here are his comments about it at reddit and the video:
We have received a very good response on the monKey concept since the monKey video teaser and the beta release and I wanted to share how the continuing development is going. We are planning to add the monKeys to every Banano app. That includes web apps (Wallets, Explorer) and non web apps (Games). Some of you who are active on our discord channel have already seen how the monKeys are being used as CAPTCHA.
In order to generate the monKey image in the most efficient way we had to create a customized SVG Parser that eliminates all unnecessary data and builds the image as fast as possible – no unnecessary overhead. The API is in its final stages and will provide PNG generation options, SVG generation options and also the monKey metadata which will be used in future development (heard something about premium items achievements :)) <- this is not a double chin smiley face. The final release will be out soon and should be included in the next Banano runner event.
Speaking of Banano runner. Some of you asked how the monKey will look like in the faucet game. I believe that this is a good time to show a sneak peek:
Banano runner and future apps that will utilize the 3D monKey will use a more minimal representation of the monKey – No accessories. The reason is that the monKey needs to run without accessories so it can run faster and collect more Banano in less the time (AKA we will currently not 3D model every accessory as we believe that our resources should be used in a more important priorities).
“But wait, without accessories the monKey is not unique!” Yes, this is how you talk, the faster you accept it the better. Actually, the number of color options is 2563 = 16,777,216. Just with fur color and eye color generation we get 16,777,2162 = 281,474,976,710,656 monKey options. I’d say we are set 🙂
Welcome to the second general update about Banano. Come back regularly to not miss new BANANO developments!
The next runner game was not announced yet, but will probably start soon in June after some technical upgrades. See screenshot below:
The devs are still working on the airdrop distribution, it should actually happen any day now. Last official comment still: “Will hopefully be done by the end of the month.”
There might not be that much free Banano for grabs everywhere (except for upcoming runner weekends or other future events), but some “easter eggs” might still be up. For example you might want to check out the awesome Banano.date website for some easy, free Banano 😉 Give it a try!
HowToBanano’s Bantastic Bananorama Giveaway
This is not actually free, but our first real giveaway/ticket game, and still running for 2 days. The pot is at more than 3000 Banano already! Check out details here, at giveaway.howtobanano.info. If you don’t have enough Banano to join the tipping game you can just buy tickets for 50 Banano each!
FIFA world cup events!?
As mentioned in the last recap already, bananoplay.com is developing a betting game based on Banano which will start on June 14 with the FIFA World Cup 2018! The devs behind are from the vietnamese community, so it is not an official project. 17 days to go, looking forward! Otherwise there might be some betting games at the Discord popping up. You also might want to check out pvp.me – this new betting site does not accept Banano bets yet, but it runs completely in Nano, and you also can earn free Nano, so check it out!
Sook it – Banano game by joinity!
Banano discord’s @joinity has made a new game at banano.land, as already reported before! It now has more levels, and on May 28 there was a community game running organised through the discord. @manpan won it with several others finishing after and getting some great Banano bounties, congrats! Screenshot of a new level below! Looking forward to see more updates, and then we hopefully will learn more! Great work, joinity!
Awesome custom-style monKeys!
Some really awesome custom-style monKeys were made by @RaphyMonkeyVzla-Zoe&Bianca in the discord a few days ago. See examples below:
See price updates and historic documentation on the right side. Thanks to @Seeker214 and @ChrisTurd for helping with keeping price levels up to date. Both are honorable discord members trading BANANO and NANO in the discord’s #jungle-bazaar channel. The current banano price is 3300 BANANO for 1 NANO.
How To Buy Banano?
Banano can only be traded for NANO at the Discord currently. See here a getting started-guide for help.
Otherwise NANO can now be bought directly for EUR, USD and other real currencies at CoinFalcon. Create an account here and check it out. Prices are low!
r/bananocoin now has 2,000 subscribers, and the discord has 8637 members.

We have decided to post general updates from time to time about Banano. So welcome to the first ever Bantastic Banano Recap! Come back regularly to not miss new BANANO developments!
Banano rewards from third runner event have been paid
Finally, Bananos collected during the third Banano Runner event have been paid. Check your wallet! If you have received less Banano than expected notice this message by @renesq:
“For problems with payouts, message @BANANO-HELP-ENGLISH only. Answers may take 2-3 days. This does not guarantee another payout though, it will only help analyze what possibly went wrong and help us improving the technology to make it more reliable. You may be asked to help with testing the next version. Tor Proxies don’t work with the game by the way.”
The next runner game was not announced yet, there will be technical upgrades first. During the last Banano Runner event, a total of 14,000 wallets were submitted!
“The next runner event will take place as soon as we finished the technological upgrade. The event’s timeframe will be announced on this page once we feel confident about it.”
The devs are still working on the airdrop distribution. Official comment: “Will hopefully be done by the end of the month.”
Bananoplay.com confirmed as non-official project
The makers behind bananoplay.com just confirmed that they are developing a betting game based on Banano which will start on June 14 with the FIFA World Cup 2018 (source: personal communication at banano discord)! The devs behind are from the vietnamese community, and it is not an official project! Few days ago there was some confusion about the purpose of this website, and if it’s official or not (read post about this here). Now, there is also a statement about this on the website, displaying: “Bananoplay Is A Website Privately Made And Operated By The Banano Community. Bananoplay Is Not Endorsed By The Official Banano Team.” So 24 days to go until we can try it!
Sook it – another new Banano-related game?
Banano discord’s @joinity has made a new game at banano.land! Posted just 20 minutes ago at the discord as some beta version. It is called “Sook it”. See first screenshots below (and more here)! Try it out! Looking forward to see more updates, and then we hopefully will learn more if and how Banano will be used in this game!
Monkey-shaped QR codes
At the discord there was a small scavenger hunting game posted recently by @Yekta. It used different monkey-shaped QR codes with one leading to a Banano wallet seed with some tasty Banano inside. The QR code shape is a cool idea, see an example below:
In the right menu we will provide updates and historic documentation of the current Banano price. Thanks to @Seeker214 and @ChrisTurd for helping with keeping price levels up to date. Both are honorable discord members trading BANANO and NANO in the discord’s #jungle-bazaar channel. The current banano price is 3250 BANANO for 1 NANO.
Multi-language support on HowToBanano.info
We have added a google-translate function for this website on the top right, feel free to let us know if this is of any help for you! We are aware that big parts of the Banano community are located in Venezuela, Vietnam and many other countries.

monKey Beta released! Inofficial announcement from @Randomizer in the discord:
You are welcome to play with and help us test the monKey generator. Unofficial monKey generator: http://monkey-g.herokuapp.com/
THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL RELEASE!
monKey generation will work a lot faster in future release and client side will be more in toned with the Banano theme. Do not get used to your current monKey! There will be major changes to the monKey visuals between beta release and official release.
More™️ information™️ coming™️ soon™️
Here’s how some of mine look like:
Here’s a brand-new teaser video showing the monKey concept. MonKey will be a visual representation of your BANANO account ID. Pretty bantastic that the BANANO devs are building all this great stuff around the basic coin concept! Enjoy the video!
In the Banano Republic, every public key represents a monkey. Turn your account ID into a unique one of a kind monKey that nobody else will have but you. From different eye colors to funky accessories, designer clothing and facial expressions, this monKey will be a visual representation of your account ID.
Finally some update today posted at reddit by ChocolateFudCake, link here.
Contents very brief: New Team members, announcement of monKey concept (customized monkey-like visual account ID representation on the BANANO platform), Banano Nano Ledger S project going good, and new exchange features with escrow function for trading NANO vs. BANANO on the discord are live. Otherwise some vault upgrades, and some note that the last runners event payment is ongoing and will be wrapped up shortly. Apparently a lot of people have registered for the airdrop and the distribution should be finished during May. Yellow paper coming soon as well.
Also announced: A discord BANANO faucet coming soon!
