The Asian exchange QBTC has recently listed BANANO with USDT and CNYT pairs. Trading has meanwhile started, and 24 h trading volume is already more than 20k USD. The launch is celebrated with an airdrop/trading competition with 3 Million BANANO prizes in total (source).
As always, be mindful when trading and never keep your coins on an exchange if you don’t plan to trade.
The BANANO team releases a totally different, brand-new BANANO Miner Faucet!
With BANANO Miner, instead of wasting power to “mine” a cryptocurrency, you help scientists doing medical research around the world to fight diseases. And you earn BANANO by doing so!
BANANO has been listed at Bitmesh with a BTC pair. Bitmesh is another exchange based in Asia. Bitmesh is a rather new exchange, so as always, be mindful when using and keep you coins off exchanges! More info at coingecko, and here’s the direct link: https://bitmesh.com/exchange?market=btc_ban#/
BANANO April 1 Update: Kalium Release & MonkeyTalks On-Chain Messaging Announcement! Kalium is now out of Beta, has new functions! Also: BANANO has now an on-chain messaging application combined with a $BANANO faucet – MonkeyTalks! This is great news!
BANANO is now listed with BTC and ETH pairs on the cryptocurrency exchange Citex.io:
Deposits work, withdrawals not yet, and trading has started just today.
EDIT: Trading has started meanwhile, current price is 64 Satoshi 😉 ETH Price pair was up in between at 0.19 USD 🙂 If you have problems finding the BANANO:BTC trading pair: Try this link: https://citex.co.kr/#/trade/2/53
Citex is apparently a Korean exchange, and there seem to be some BAN airdrops (“Yellow Shower” Gifts ;)) to existing and new users announced on their website.. It seems like no one from the official BANANO team initiated this listing, so be mindful/careful when using it.
You might have seen that there’s a new BANANO Faucet: The BANANO Miner!
You easily can get free BANANO from this by using your CPU a little. Of note, you are not really mining BANANO (which isn’t mineable at all, transactions are feeless). Instead, the faucet actually mines webchain by using your CPU, automatically converts rewards to BANANO and sends it to your wallet. This would still be extremely inefficient, but the faucet is subsidized heavily by the BANANO team, and the proof-of-work here only is used to avoid faucet exploits. Most likely this is the best paying mining faucet ever!
Of note, the mining in this context is just used to have another faucet for the BANANO community that can’t be exploited too easily.
Next, you’ll need to set how much of your CPU power will be used. For the start, it’s recommended to set the “speed” to 50% or lower, meaning not all your CPU power will be used. You can also use less Threads of your CPU. Hit start when you’re ready and give it a try:
Monitor your computer for some time. You should try to find settings that work fine for you, i.e. find a balance between mining speed and CPU usage. Make sure your computer doesn’t get too warm! If that happens reduce the speed setting!
After a few minutes you’ll have mined few BANANO. Hit the “withdraw” button to send your “mining rewards” to your wallet. That should normally go quite fast. That’s it 😉
Too annoying and infeffcient? Yes, that’s the downside of classical cryptocurrency mining, which is still used a lot, even though there’s newer solutions around. Let’s be happy that BANANO doesn’t require anyone to use lots of computing power just for confirming transactions. BANANO is green and doesn’t require mining.
