CryptomonKeys very recently launched as NFT-based BANANO community project with freely distributed monKey-themed digital collectible cards. With Halloween around the corner, let’s do a Halloween monKey Design Contest with BANANO and cryptomonKeys as prizes! Your creation might even become an NFT!
BANANO is around since more than two years and growing and going quite well despite all the 2020 craziness. BANANO is 100% freely distributed (don’t worry about gas fees or transaction fees ever again!). Now it’s October already, meaning it’s time for another fresh Monthly Update from the BANANO ecosystem! The idea of those monthly updates is to keep our community informed, provide a good starting point for new people looking at the project, and to be transparent about BANANO’s ongoing distribution activities and community growth.
This BANANO Monthly Update October 2020 summarizes all important happenings in the BANANO ecosphere in September 2020, which already was the 30th month since the BANANO main-net 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!

You might have noticed that the monKeys – Banano visual account representations – are everywhere.
At www.monkeygen.com you’ll find a great monKey generator and can try to find one with rare accessories like this guy here:
The creator of all this, @randomizer, also wrote a great article about the concept and reasoning behind this on hackernoon:

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.

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!

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 🙂
