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!

HowToBanano’s Bantastic Banano Recap #4

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!

The website bananobet.com is online since yesterday. Check it out, it is a Banano-based betting website with a faucet giving you 25 Banano daily for free. Full article here.

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.

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.

Some statistics
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.

Weekly Developer Update & 3D Banano Runner Modelling Session

In case you missed it, bbedward recently posted a weekly developers update on reddit.

In this post, we get quite some impression of how relevant and bantastic the discord bots are, that we soon will have mobile Banano wallets and how we even dominate the Nano network 🙂

Discord Bots

The bots got some pretty nice updates this week and last week. Primarily backend-related and not necessarily anything you would notice. Basically:

  • BananoBot repository is now deprecated and will no longer be updated. A single code base now handles NANO/BANANO and that is located here

  • Database was migrated from SQLite to Postgres, to eliminate future concerns with multi-processing and writes to SQLite

  • Transaction processing is no longer in the bot process. Transactions are now sent/received in celery worker processes using redis and task queues to communicate back and forth between the bot and worker processes. Basically it’s significantly faster and more efficient+reliable

  • With above point, tips are also pocketed instantly when they are processed now – and external deposits should be processed within a few minutes too, except when there’s very heavy rains in the forecast.

This is part of a larger milestone which is to make the bot public and enable banano/nano tipping to anybody on discord with the click of a button. I’ve written up some github tickets to work towards that but I’m a bit busy with other things so it’s going to be further down the road.

If you run a bot (I know a few that do), the update to 3.0 is not trivial – I have some rough instructions in the README and you can message me as well for help.

Mobile Wallets

Some of you have seen the mobile wallet designs by yekta, they’re pretty damn gorgeous. Anyway, i’ve been working on making them reality. The wallet is canoe-based, but the front-end views are being completely re-done along with some other components (encryption, account overview is your “home” view for a default account, etc.). I’ve made quite a bit of progress on them over the last few weeks, there’s still quite a bit of work to do (Yekta has given me mockups of pretty much the entire wallet by now). Anyway it looks good, works really well, but there’s a lot of functionality I still need to implement. I’m not sure how I’m going to open up a beta yet, but there’ll be details in the coming weeks.

How a discord Bot dominates the NANO network

I’m only focusing on the NANO side because its had its main network live for much longer than BANANO obviously, and that makes the overall stats more interesting I think. Sure, BananoBot accounts for 70-ish% of blocks on Banano but Banano mainnet has only been live since April 1 and the bot was in full swing for the mainnet launch. The bots started out as basic tip bots but really have become so much more than that quickly. It’s the primary way people are able to trade banano (and where price information is coming from on creeper), all the features and giveaways keep the community active and participating, rain+giveaways has turned into one of the primary ways to distribute BANANO, and the way the bot is designed itself shows what the network is really capable of (with every tip being a real transaction, good luck trying to do that with another currency). Anyway, keep in mind these numbers are from Graham, the bot that operates exclusively on the Banano discord. These don’t include any from the bot that operated briefly on the NANO discord a few months back (that one made a lot of transactions though), or the one that operates there now.

The nano network overall has ~10.3M blocks (ever-increasing). Graham has produced approximately 1,330,000 blocks since March 28th. If you don’t know that means Graham accounts for almost 13% of all blocks on the entire NANO network. Pretty impressive considering Graham only has transactions from March 28th onward recorded.

Looking at months specifically, Graham accounts for:

~587,800 blocks on NANO during April, or about 45%

~509,200 blocks on NANO during May, or about 42%

And idk wtf is happening in June but we’re over 200,000 for the month, which is something crazy like almost 70% of all blocks for the month of June so far. Data was taken from nanode and put together harshly and quickly. I just think it’s interesting how the banano discord is the biggest producer of blocks on BANANO/NANO by far. Anyway, that’s all I think. Mitch is working hard on the next BRunner, I updated the banano node the other day which has alleviated most of our immediate issues, and the air drop happened so that’s alright. So stay tuned for all that – BRunner v4, monKeys, mobile wallet, and more coming in the next days/months.

In case you missed, it, @mitchellcairns shared some development for the next runner in a 3D modelling session at twitch. The videos are still online:

New Banano Faucet Game starting in a few hours

A new banano faucet by Coranos as tested before twice (see image above from previous testrun) will start in a few hours (5 pm Chicago time), check it out here.

Game is currently in demo mode and says “number of winners over 10000 is 0 of 100″, so apparently the game will run until 100 people have reached 10000 banano”, so probably it will take 24 hours or so.
Edit: Game is still up: “number of winners over 10000 is 1 of 100 with a total payout of 576222 of 2000000.
Game is live. Bananos will be distributed to all verified accounts after a verification period has passed.
(This message will disappear at 5AM Chicago Time on Monday June 18th).”
Server is running very slow currently. Keep in mind that this is not the most exciting game but significantly contributes to Banano distribution to many people. Probably people in poor countries or without a job will preferentially play this more, which is great!

Have fun!
