What is Banano?

BANANO is a cryptocurrency forked from NANO in April 2018. It offers instant, feeless and potassium-rich transactions, thanks to the fact that BANANO developers have kept big portions of the original code unchanged to maintain cross-chain compatibility with existing code libraries. They have also fine-tuned some parameters, such as Proof of Work requirements and currency units. The focus of BANANO is to provide an ongoing free and fair distribution, while also experimenting with feature additions such as a privacy layer (Camo BANANO), on-chain messaging (MonkeyTalks) and more.

BANANO has an infrastructure ready-to-strike with easy-to-use mobile wallets (Kalium) and tipbots on several major social media platforms to onboard new users. They also plan to do IRL airdrops at some point. The goal 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.

How do I buy Banano in 2024?

You can buy Banano using credit card (Visa or MasterCard), bank transfer, Apple Pay or Google Pay. All you need to do is to choose a fiat currency, e.g. CHF, and enter an amount. A conversion rate is calculated for you. Once you are happy with the rate, tap the "Continue" button to get started. At this point, you will need to connect your email or wallet (if you are buying crypto for the first time, it will be easier for you to use your email, but Metamask and WalletConnect are also supported). Depending on wether Banano is supported by our ramp provider, you may be invited to buy an intermediary token, that we will then swap to Banano for you. In this case, you will first need to sign a permit in order to allow us to perform this swap on your behalf. Finally, you will be able to choose your payment method, and finalise your purchase. If this is your first time buying with Ondefy, you will need to complete a short KYC (Known Your Customer) verification.

Is it safe to buy Banano?

Your payment processing is securely handled by our partner Transak, and your purchased Banano tokens benefit from the security of the blockchain. Nevertheless, as an investor you must assume the risk of owning cryptocurrencies, due to their inherent price volatility.
