Ok, here it finally is, the official BANANO Bitcointalk announcement thread. BANANO already started more than a year ago, on April 1st, 2018 and a lot has happened since then (check it out /here if you like). Now we will also will give regular updates here.
Since BANANO is shaped by its rapidly growing community, I think it's best to give a brief summary here for now and amend/edit over time as needed. Everyone's input is highly welcome, may it be questions, suggestions, memes, contributions, whatsoever!

Key Features of BANANO

  • forked from NANO/XRB
  • main-net since April 2018
  • instant & feeless transactions
  • ongoing free & fair distribution through airdrops & innovative faucets
  • ongoing tech development (privacy layer, on-chain messaging, faucet games, mining faucets & more)
  • monKey implementation as visual account representatives, similar to cryptokitties
  • aiming to onboard people being new to crypto
  • yes, we also have memes, and we don't take ourselves too serious
  • ripe infrastructure with sleek wallets & tipbots on multiple social media platforms
  • welcoming, multi-cultural community (e.g. our Discord Server has 26k+ members)
  • currently traded on 5 exchanges, see more tech/market details here at coingecko
  • current market cap is approx. 1 Million USD, with around 25% of all coins being distributed so far

What is BANANO?

BANANO was forked in April 2018 from NANO. BANANO offers instant, feeless and rich in potassium 🍌 transactions, thanks to the fact that BANANO developers (several of them having being involved in NANO itself) have kept big portions of the original code unchanged to keep cross-chain compatibility between existing code libraries. However, they have fined-tuned some parameters, such as Proof of Work requirements and currency units. While the focus for now is on having an ongoing free and fair distribution, BANANO is also experimenting with feature additions such as a privacy layer (Camo BANANO), on-chain messaging (MonkeyTalks) and more.

In context of distribution, we aim to use our meanwhile ready-to-strike infrastructure with easy-to-use mobile wallets (Kalium) and tipbots on several major social media platforms to onboard normies and crypto-noobs who have no idea yet what a cryptocurrency is. We also might do IRL airdrops at some point. Of note, key here is to make the start with crypto as easy as possible, use a fun attitude and gamification to get new users started without all the usual hassle, and then educate them to handle crypto in general in a responsible way.

Want to learn more? Read the BANANO Yellowpaper: All details about BANANO technology and its innovative features, and also animations, videos, and of course memes! ALSO, it's interactive and truly unique every time someone reads it!

CAMO Banano - Introducing BANANO's Privacy Layer


This feature surely is relevant and interesting enough to mention it separately:

Quite recently, we've finally announced Phase 1 of 'Camo BANANO' - BANANO's privacy layer.



While for now accounting for confidential and not fully private transactions yet, Camo BANANO will be further developed. Phase 2 of Camo BANANO requires adding a new block type to the BANANO protocol, finally allowing for sum-of-squares private transactions. Keep posted for further updates, and read more here in the full announcement:

Finally a project that is actually putting in some effort, free fair distribution without ICO, pushing updates back to its parent code and educating newbies on cryptocurrency in a controlled safe environment. Will be watching this project for sure.

Been following this coin a few months after their mainnet launch.

They are doing some interesting stuff with the distribution. Not to mention 4the devs are competent and are constantly working on updating their apps/faucets.

Not sure how good it is in terms of an "investment" because the inflation is pretty high, but it has a great community that I'm proud to be a part of.

Looking forward to see where this coin leads.

Why we need to try banano sir ?

Its still anonymous developer..

Trying to answer as brief as possible:

Regarding your question:
Banano is experimental, as Bitcoin still is experimental. We are trying to do things little different in most ways than Bitcoin did, see the main post at the top for all the details. Our overall aim is TRUE free and fair distribution and engagement with people who don't know cryptocurrency yet, or find it too complicated. Keep in mind that most people in the world have no idea cryptocurrencies even exist, or don't care.

Key is education and adoption, we're trying to do this through free distribution and gamification/ease-of-use.

Regarding the anonymity remark:
Our website doesn't state linkedin profiles or full names, true. If you, however, have a closer look you'll find out the real names or identities of several team members. For example, just head over to Creeper, our Network explorer and scroll to the bottom. Anyway, team identity and lack of anonymity mostly is applicable if projects take money from investors, as it was done in thousands of ICOs over the last years. It's important that people know whom they give money.

In the case of BANANO, however, we are giving out free coins to everyone who wants. We've not done any ICO, it's rather the opposite, and as mentioned it's a big experiment with lots of unpaid work behind. But it's fun, and we enjoy it.

I assume Satoshi Nakamoto (who is the anonymous dev behind the biggest crypto project so far) also would have enjoyed BANANO.  Wink

Bitcoin has long gone beyond experiments, but the banana project, though experimental, is gaining momentum well. And the price is rising and exchanges are added.

Yes, maybe to add I haven't meant at all to use 'experimental' in a negative way. BANANO is a young project and we're trying out a lot of different and sometimes very new things, and keep learning. 'We' doesn't mean few Devs, but the overall community. Several of our faucets actually started from ideas or concepts initially created by our community members, later those then became official faucets.

Just yesterday two members from our community released a proof-of-concept website using BANANO. It's a Fomo3D variant based on BANANO.

Memes are serious business.


We fully agree that memes are serious bushyness. I realise we have memes indeed underrepresented in the ANN post. Our meme makers are doing an overall noice job I think. Memes are part of BANANO, and it's much more fun under the flag of a memecoin project to realise the ongoing free and fair distribution mentioned before, since it leaves more freedom to the project and creates a nice attitude and atmosphere.

Obviously this is, however, not only about word play, but BANANO is used right now in many thousands of transactions per day, and a considerable amount of those transactions are tips for memes and content. In that sense, BANANO is already working and heavily used as a tipping coin to reward content creators.

As summarized in our network stats here, the BANANO network (at the time of writing this) has an average of 0.234 blocks per second, which makes it averaging above 20k  blocks per day! Once could say it's foreseeable that BANANO will disrupt lots more than just the meme economy Wink

Having that said, here is a premium video BANANO meme with unprecedented voice-overs, making clear we're not taking ourselves seriously but have high ambitions Wink
(Make sure to turn on sound!)



This one actually won the "Meme of the Year 2018 Award" by r/cryptocurrency (source)! Enjoy!
