FREE Cryptocurrency: Banano Faucet
I made a cryptocurrency faucet at https://faucet.prussia.dev (hosted and developed on repl.it, but it also has a github at jetstream0/Banano-Faucet.
What is a Faucet?
A faucet is website that gives out free cryptocurrency. It is usually sustained through advertisement, but my faucet is 100% nonprofit (this means the faucet is sustained through community donations and sponsorships. I have made negligible amounts of money from this, in fact I'm probably running this at a loss.)
What is Banano?
Banano is a cryptocurrency, like bitcoin or ethereum. It is a memecoin crypto, meaning it was made as a joke. It is a fork of Nano, another cryptocurrency. At time of posting, one banano is worth $0.01924 and it has a marketcap of $24,350,464. You can learn more at https://banano.how and https://banano.cc
Why does this faucet give Banano?
Other cryptocurrencies like bitcoin or ether typically have high fees, making them impractical for faucets. Banano however, is feeless (0 fees!!!!). I also really like the banano community, so this was made partially in thanks to them.
How do I claim?
First, go to https://vault.banano.cc and follow the instructions there to set up a banano wallet. Make sure you don't lose your money by setting a password and saving the seed in multiple safe places. Then, go to the account tab and copy your address. Go to https://faucet.prussia.dev and paste in your address.
What if I need more help?
Ask questions in the comments or r/banano or https://chat.banano.cc.
Is this real? And why are you doing this?
Yes. And I am doing this to give back to the community, and give newbies like yourself some free crypto.
Can I convert Banano to real money?
Yes, you can convert it to 'real money' by converting it to btc or other big cryptos at an exchange that supports banano, then withdraw that to binance or other exchanges that let you exchange btc or other big cryptos to usd. You probably will need to have a photo id and be over 18 btw.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy your free banano. Also thank you to undercover ape for designing the front end! Additional thank you to donators and sponsors for keeping the faucet running
DO NOT CLAIM MULTIPLE TIMES IN A DAY THAT IS CHEATING AND YOU ARE A BAD PERSON. YOU ARE STEALING FROM OTHERS BY CLAIMING MORE THAN YOUR FAIR SHARE OF BANANO. Also, you will be banned from using it.
Amazing :) Crypto(currency) stuff is so cool! I think to prevent spammers, just use replauth along with a rate limit, or find a way to use a ratelimiter.
