Backed by next generation DAG tech and potassium, BANANO is a cryptocurrency getting into your wallet fastfeelessly, and with loads of fun. BANANO is distributed for free to everyone. Its easy-to-use technology onboards normies and crypto-noobs without the usual hassle by combining a fun attitude with gamification, and then educate them to handle crypto in general in a responsible way.

cryptomonKeys NFTs are closely connected to the BANANO ecosystem, and since BANANO always is about trying new ways of free and fair distribution, they now built monKeyslots, a slot machine game you can use as BANANO faucet if you own cryptomonKeys NFTs! Take it as a first proof-of-concept beta to utilize NFT gamification for coin distribution across blockchains.

cryptomonKeys Month 4 Recap

It’s already 4 months since the launch of cryptomonKeys, and month 4 was filled with even more fun, more cards and ramped up distribution through airdrops and giveaways. Here’s a quick summary and few highlights:

More New Cards!

Within month 4 we released Card 26 to 33 — which included the first 2 ever common cards. The reason behind was that we have grown a lot and — especially through the Santa Bot event with daily X-Mas gifts on the BANANO Discord server, the cryptomonKeys Discord Tipbot and several HUGE December airdrops distributed lots more cards that ever before. Within month 4 we have minted more cryptomonKeys than in the first 3 months altogether!

The Blue Wizard Appeared!

It was quite exciting to see the mysterious whale ‘The Blue Wizard’ entering and supporting the WAX NFT space, buying 1 Million USD worth of WAX NFTs from different projects. Amongst those the Blue Wizard also bought several cryptomonKeys from secondary markets, one (our ‘Blue Wizard cryptomonKey) with a record sale price of 55555 WAX. Yes, that means a user got a cryptomonKeys NFT for free from us (as usual, since we have free distribution) and sold it for more than 2k USD worth of WAX shortly after! Learn more about him in this podcast.


More details and stats about the project in the full cryptomonKeys Month 4 recap here.

The monKeyprinters/core team wishes you a very Merry Christmas! We are so thankful this project took off that smoothly, with so much fun and excitement in the last three months since the launch. Nothing of all this would be possible without you guys, banfam/monkeyfam! A YUUUGE ‘thank you’ to all of you!

We recently mentioned our commitment to charity in the last update within our FAQ already. As summarized there, we not only generally distribute cryptomonKeys NFTs for free, we also committed to donate a fraction (19%) of the market fee we receive from secondary market trading to charity. Donations will be calculated and sent every few months, first one will happen soon.

In addition, we decided to auction off a maximum of 1 cryptomonKey cards every 19 days and donate 81% of the proceeds from those auctions to charitable organizations. The first of these charity auctions has just concluded few days ago, and the winning bid reached an astonishing amount of 19191 WAX (equivalent to 708 USD at the time)!

Where will donations go to?

Donations for now will be sent to UpliftNation / UpliftDAO which is an upcoming charitable blockchain project founded by Michael Blu (also founder of which is another project combining NFT art and charity on the WAX blockchain).

Proceeds from the first charity auction have been sent to them already:
Donation (81% of Winning Bid minus marketplace and market fees):
