And another new faucet: The Crane Faucet goes online tomorrow! Online only until 100k BANANO have been claimed!
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.
How to get started:
Go to the BANANO Miner website and enter your BANANO address:
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.

BananoBet was basically the first real BANANO community project, and the first BANANO use-case, ever. It’s a solid, simple and provable fair betting platform. Now it’s about to reach 15 Million bets and have some nice giveaways running. Congrats for that great achievement! Check out their announcement at Reddit here. If you don’t know BananoBet yet, here’s a brief How-To aiming to help you getting started.
The faucet game MonKey Match will have another $BANANO distribution round (500k Banano) starting on March 2nd (source: discord).
Some awesome Canadian $BANANO community members around @Madasiaka teamed up and organized a Banano online puzzle/maze race starting on January 31st. Sounds like no one should miss that! More than 100k Banano in prizes! Details here.
Banano updates are now also available as “Delta Direct” directly in the crypto portfolio app Delta (source).
Meme Faucet payments for Round 6 have been sent. Faucet will reopen soon.
More details here at r/banano
Details here, date for reopening not known yet.
In case you missed it: The Meme Faucet is back online, paying 15 Banano per image description!
Otherwise there are a total of 6 events for $BANANO distribution running right now.
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.
It basically says the official launch of the dutch exchange is delayed, proposed start in January 2019, no exact date given.
It also mentions that all three DAG based coins winning during the voting phase (which includes Nano) will (hopefully) be listed at launch.
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.
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!
