Vote for Banano at Buzzex Exchange Voting!

Banano (BAN) already is listed/traded at Mercatox and has won community votings at two other exchanges launching soon, Txbit.io and numex.exchange.

Now here’s another new exchange voting where you can support Banano: Buzzex.io

Buzzex will launch in early 2019. If you register and vote you’ll also get Buzzex Coins (a token issued by the exchange) for free.

How to vote (only possible once):

1. Register at Buzzex.io

2. Click on “Voting” at the top of the website

3. Find “Banano” (search for ban only, otherwise it won’t work) and vote

Done! You’ll get additional Buzzex coin rewards for certain bounties and for completing KYC, check details here.

How To Earn Banano with the Banano Meme Faucet

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.

First, you register with your Banano address on the Banano meme faucet website: https://image.faucet.banano.peppersoft.net/

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.
Edit: If you get an error message like “Error: IP not registered. Please create a new account to register the IP.” you will need to register again with another BANANO address. This is sometimes required in order to prevent cheating.

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!
