Dark Crypto Banning Users. First from telegram then from Reddit after asking why I was banned from telegram. No communication from Dark Crypto mods or support. I had been very supportive of the project following protocols. I started asking questions and BANNED. No Warning no Communication just BAN.
Though this is a low-effort post from 4 months, I’ll bite. **Banano Doubts** Nano, original fork of BAN, is in rough shape. If Nano ceased development, there might be issues responding to attacks - specifically because banano often pulls from nano updates. Though Banano has brand recognition of its own, if Nano fall during the current bear-market, holders may get scared and panic out of it. However, the network would continue to operate, and potentially, nano devs with time on their hands could switch over and secure banano. **Banano Pluses** Banano has a great community and it’s been slowly distributing its token and garnering trust within the crypto-community at large. If BAN were to be traded on a large exchange (which is very possible if the distribution of the token is carried out over the next two years), survives the bear market, and continues to keep a tight-knit community - Banano will do exceptionally well. “Don’t let your memes be dreams” 1ban=1ban
If anyone is interested in BANANO and want to pick up some BAN for free I compiled a list of all the faucets available in a little mobile friendly directory. https://hub.banano.network/#faucets There’s also links to games, tools and other cool community projects ☺️
IMO memecoins are as good as the community built around them. They're essentially community tokens, but people do get into these communities as a byproduct of gain chasing greed. Except Banano, 1BAN = 1BAN for us, and we use our potassium to work with other monkes.
If I was buying a coin based on meme potential, I’d go with Banano (BAN). It has enough history and community that it will be around for a long time IMO. It is barely in the top 1000 but lots of people already know about it so it already has more brand recognition than other small cap coins.
Yeah, no need to think about unexplored rain forests and space - we have the laughable Mr. Saylor. If he had more of a rational view of the entirety of cryptocurrency and not just "BTC ICHI BAN", he'd be worth paying attention to.
Literally what every bitcoin maxi wants. Just abandon all the progress in the tech and just stick with bitcoin baby! Michael Saylor has a mansion to buy baby cmon we can’t innovate here when Michael Saylor needs a brand new lambo baby screw innovation BAN ALL OF CRYPTO EXCEPT BTC
FYI TO ALL: The sub r/bitcoinforbeginners will PERMA BAN you for saying anything negative about the bitcoin price, or proposing that people diversify. I got perma banned for saying that eth gives you yield on your staking. I made a new burner account, THEN got banned for saying not to but BTC at the beginning of this huge downturn. THEY ARE HURTING PEOPLE who are beginners with their cultish ideology. Rant for those who care about our crypto ecosystem.
If you are holding since 2013 ... you are either some kind of psycho or you went to jail/forgot your keys/hard drive somewhere Joke aside.. crypto use is up to you. Really. I sell my art and get paid in crypto sometimes. Whether is LTC,BAN,BSV,Safemoon(yes,safemoon) or ETH
When I first got into crypto I thought memecoins were dumb. Now I almost exclusively stack Banano. There’s four reasons: 1. It’s a fork of Nano so I feel like it has a unique tech behind it. 2. It gets used. I get it from posting memes or participating in community events. I also send tips to others with it. It’s the only crypto that I’ve actually used to send to others and get paid (someone paid me for a pizza in ban!) 3. It’s free to use. I hate fees so I like BAN. 4. It’s fun/nerdy. Crypto can be too serious sometimes. It’s nice to hop on a BananoSunday community call and listen to fellow nerds talk about Swole Torchic memes. lol
They arent speculating on the price of the coin and people check out a project before buying anything and when they do that with banano it's full of people telling them not to buy and to just lend some computing power to medical research while you're at work or something for the free BAN or play one of the faucet games.
> Nobody in the banano community really cares about token price and there's no posts about it going up or down when it happens, people just stick to the meme "1BAN = 1BAN" Lol this is such BS. As so many people try to shill the coin in this sub.
it's nothing like doge and the community will not tell you to invest in banano and isntead will tell you about the fun games and apps people made like jungletv where you can get it for free. Nobody in the banano community really cares about token price and there's no posts about it going up or down when it happens, people just stick to the meme "1BAN = 1BAN" and most people never bought a single BAN and get most from folding@home which is an open source application where you can lend your computing power to help medical research. If you do it under the banano team you get free banano too. I let it work on my old laptop and I only get like $1 of banano a day from it but it's helping the medical research and giving me more than enough banano to play with since the apps dont require much
I can’t speak for anyone else, but isn’t it possible that some people just like the project? Like I don’t think anyone should invest in BAN, that’s not really the point as far as I see it. No one should dump their life savings into it. But I genuinely watch JungleTV daily, participate in art events and use the faucets. Honestly, that’s more than I use the “investment” crypto currencies I hold, of which I only really use ETH, but I don’t except any ROI on Banano. Of course, liking a project and shilling it aren’t mutually exclusive, but it’s a post about memecoins that explicitly mentions Banano, so I don’t think it’s much of a surprise that people are talking about BAN in the comments.
"I oNlY HOlD CaUSe pF ThE ComMmunIty!" The community for a coin with only $80,000 in daily volume? Your guys' discord must be POPPIN if you were able to find 5 others to comment and upvote this post The dumbest fucking thing I've probably ever read. Holding a coin cause of a dead community lmao....unless you guys are holding orgies where you exchange BAN the whole 'IM HOLDING CAUSE OF THE COMMUNITY' is seriously the most fucking stupid thing in Crypto....makes the community look like a bunch of stupid 15 year old moonbois.
Can we ban OP for his shitty Telegraph raid to shill BAN?? The coin literally has $86,000 in 24 hour volume and most are tiny sells of people dumping their bag. Also really funny how half of the top few comments all also happen to hold a completely dead coin with 86k volume and how much they love the "technology and community" What a fucking joke lmao. Don't be a dumb fuck and buy BAN like OP
You got it correctly boss, let me add something on that: Total daily volume is 84k of which 67k comes from Txbit exchanged BAN/BTC. Its clearly people dumping tiny bags after they got caught in a "funny" shitcoin. For all of you who want to stay away from shitcoins and for all of you who complain about other shitcoins, lets compare things a bit and realize this is all just shilling. |x|MC|24HS VOL|TOTAL HOLDERS| |:-|:-|:-|:-| |DOGE|9,294,583,318 |437,946,699|4,221,710| |SHIB|5,878,989,422|313,783,607 |1,193,281| |APE|1,521,643,266 |269,662,532|80,553| |BAN|8,046,860|84,773 |175,201|

$84,000 in daily volume for BAN lmao. I'm suprised it's allowed to get shilled here to be honest. Also just flat out insane how 8 of the top 10 comments ALL MENTION BANANO....A COIN WITH 84K IN DAILY VOLUME MEANING A DEAD FUCKING COIN. LESS VOLUME THAN SHITTY SAFEM00N BY 95% Seriously, I smell a shill telegraph raid. No way 11 people upvoted this garbage while half the comment section also holds a completely dead coin
I hold and use BAN, because it’s actually got some “””utility””” as far as games and video jukeboxes go, and the community is always developing new ways to use it. No business integrations or Elon tweets, just a community working away in relative obscurity. It’s just fun and a far cry from the experience I’ve had with other memecoins, so it’s got a place in my heart.
Some will like anonymity and very low fees of XMR Some will like LTC because, compared to other POW coins, it’s fast and cheap. You’re right, it’s great for usability/transactions. Many cryptocurrencies though are nearly instant: ALGO comes to mind too. Not as popular but, hell, if we’re talking about currencies that are pleasant to use we also gotta mention XNO and BAN. Some will like the cute doge
oh how wrong you are. SCARCITY is required for hard money. The services you mention allow people to send fiat, filthy government Ponzi money, fiat. permissionless finance allows half the planet banking services, and for the rest of us... it's money our governments can't print into nothing. slow? sure if you think bitcoin or Ethereum is the "height of technological achievement" and were completely ignorant of much of the cryptocurrencies out there, then sure I can see why you think it's slow. NANO, BAN, VITE, IOTA... all FAST AND FEELESS. then there are even more that are fast and almost feeless. Cryptocurrencies are banking services on steroids. Yes "be your own bank" comes with risks, but so does "have no access to banking services and walk home with all your week wages in your pocket"... where is the insurance for people that queue for hours for the weekly wages and then are likely to get mugged on their way home, where is THEIR insurance!? With cryptocurrencies you can receive payment at a wallet address and not actually have that wallet anywhere nearby (and hence un-stealable as you leisurely walk home without any worries for your money's security) Cryptocurrencies are banking services on steroids, once all the unbank are taken care of, the rest of us in "traditional finance" will feel the need for an upgrade or get seriously left behind, cryptocurrencies are going to open up a whole new world of value transfer.
Yes. That's the top ranked post on the Banano subreddit right at this very moment. A low-class slap meme in response to your whistle blowing. Reminds me of the early UST / Luna crumble. Sigh. Guess we'll see more casualties like BAN and the crazed monkeys before market resumes upward explosion.
Yes. I see the cult-ish behavior. And is it "harmless" as the cult claims? I saw OP got met with violent protest on Banano native subreddit. A slap GIF. Very low-class, a-la Will Smith response. I have seen that same low-class defense behavior in many other scam projects, too. The holders will defend it almost as if to-the-death. Until the coin itself dies. That happens when the ones at the top making the money decide it's time. There's money being made by those at the top, yes. There's an "ecosystem" - and they are making people feel "fun"about donating GPUs (read: cash to those at top) and giving their slave labor in the name of science. The cult is indeed very giving of their BAN. Bless their hearts.
I assume you are referring to the fact that a significant amount of BAN is not in circulation? https://np.reddit.com/r/banano/comments/stsnnc/where_can_i_find_the_official_roadmap_for_token/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
Well these are true. Fast - near instant transactions completed due to DAG tech (and code stays up to date since compatible with NANO dev updates) Feeless - there are no fees. Fun - It’s mostly used to tip people for funny memes. This July is literally “swole torchic month” in the discord with a bunch of events to earn free BAN lol
>If you haven't heard the news yet, r/Banano and its founders, lead developers and promoters have been accused of being fraudsters. By who? You? Lol. **I like Banano, so anyone reading this please take that into account**, but literally what is fraudulent about it? It's *partially* distributed for Folding@Home, but anyone who has done it knows that it is far from a get-rich-quick method; BAN isn't worth much at all, and you don't earn a great deal from F@A. It's also distributed through community events, JungleTV, faucets and games. All of these are potential "timewasters", but if you don't want to spend time on them, literally no one is forcing you to? Isn't that just how all faucets and crypto games work? I'll ultimately turn on any project that ends up being a scam, I don't mind admitting I've been tricked, but: >Their trick for suckering in new holders is the "folding at home" in the name of "science research" - not as sexy of a con as Terra / Luna's Anchor protocol, but nonetheless a ploy to entice holders to spend time working on worthless tasks from the comfort of their own home - which does nothing but fatten the wallets of the ones standing to benefit the most from those efforts... the founders, lead devs and promoters. Folding@Home is not an invention of any of the Banano devs. You can accuse it of not working, but it is a completely independent project - it's not even a crypto project. Also, the worth of a cryptocurrency going up *always* "fattens the wallets of the founders and devs". You don't have to like that, but it's the nature of crypto, not specifically Banano. In summary, I literally have no idea what your issue with Banano is.
Is this some sort of joke? The banano community is such a stark contrast to elsewhere because they dont seem to give a shit about the price, nobody talks about buying any, just getting it for free from faucets or community games, folding@home, etc... And they seem to hype the community but not the coin. I find the community fun so I made a little banano dApp in an evening. Banano doesnt even have transaction fees since it's a nano fork and transactions for my dApp game thing cost as little as 0.000000000000001 BAN. Each ban is only half a cent so it's dirt cheap and just a fun community and project to work with. The talent in the community is honestly really impressive too and it seems like a lot of people just use that community for the sake for fun. With the whole not caring about the price thing they even have a common meme/phrase of "1 ban = 1 ban" as a way of saying the dollar value doesn't matter to the community. I've never heard anyone calling banano an investment and I wouldnt consider it one either. It's just a fun community and it allows you to use folding@home to lend your computing power to help research and cure diseases while you're not using your computer and it mines like a dollar or two worth of crypto for you per day with that. It's not much but you can sell out once a week to avoid price drops and you're making a positive contribution with your computing power. Selling out is stupidly easy too because you can just use banano.trade to generate a banano address that you can send to which converts it to USDC (on Matic) or to MOON or to NANO.
New way to make some $$$: Go put r/Bananoncommunity on blast. Sit back and collect the BAN they send to your inbox. Unreal. They are paying me to call them cultists. Well, time for bed. Gonna sleep so good tonight. Wonder how much BAN I'll wake up to in my inbox? 🤔
Good online communities die primarily by refusing to defend themselves.Somewhere in the vastness of the Internet, it is happening even now. It was once a well-kept garden of intelligent discussion, where knowledgeable and interested folk came, attracted by the high quality of speech they saw ongoing. But into this garden comes a fool, and the level of discussion drops a little—or more than a little, if the fool is very prolific in their posting. (It is worse if the fool is just articulate enough that the former inhabitants of the garden feel obliged to respond, and correct misapprehensions—for then the fool dominates conversations.)So the garden is tainted now, and it is less fun to play in; the old inhabitants, already invested there, will stay, but they are that much less likely to attract new blood. Or if there are new members, their quality also has gone down.Then another fool joins, and the two fools begin talking to each other, and at that point some of the old members, those with the highest standards and the best opportunities elsewhere, leave...I am old enough to remember the USENET that is forgotten, though I was very young. Unlike the first Internet that died so long ago in the Eternal September, in these days there is always some way to delete unwanted content. We can thank spam for that—so egregious that no one defends it, so prolific that no one can just ignore it, there must be a banhammer somewhere.But when the fools begin their invasion, some communities think themselves too good to use their banhammer for—gasp!—censorship.After all—anyone acculturated by academia knows that censorship is a very grave sin... in their walled gardens where it costs thousands and thousands of dollars to enter, and students fear their professors' grading, and heaven forbid the janitors should speak up in the middle of a colloquium.It is easy to be naive about the evils of censorship when you already live in a carefully kept garden. Just like it is easy to be naive about the universal virtue of unconditional nonviolent pacifism, when your country already has armed soldiers on the borders, and your city already has police. It costs you nothing to be righteous, so long as the police stay on their jobs.The thing about online communities, though, is that you can't rely on the police ignoring you and staying on the job; the community actually pays the price of its virtuousness.In the beginning, while the community is still thriving, censorship seems like a terrible and unnecessary imposition. Things are still going fine. It's just one fool, and if we can't tolerate just one fool, well, we must not be very tolerant. Perhaps the fool will give up and go away, without any need of censorship. And if the whole community has become just that much less fun to be a part of... mere fun doesn't seem like a good justification for (gasp!) censorship, any more than disliking someone's looks seems like a good reason to punch them in the nose.(But joining a community is a strictly voluntary process, and if prospective new members don't like your looks, they won't join in the first place.)And after all—who will be the censor? Who can possibly be trusted with such power?Quite a lot of people, probably, in any well-kept garden. But if the garden is even a little divided within itself —if there are factions—if there are people who hang out in the community despite not much trusting the moderator or whoever could potentially wield the banhammer—(for such internal politics often seem like a matter of far greater import than mere invading barbarians)—then trying to defend the community is typically depicted as a coup attempt. Who is this one who dares appoint themselves as judge and executioner? Do they think their ownership of the server means they own the people? Own our community? Do they think that control over the source code makes them a god?I confess, for a while I didn't even understand why communities had such trouble defending themselves—I thought it was pure naivete. It didn't occur to me that it was an egalitarian instinct to prevent chieftains from getting too much power. "None of us are bigger than one another, all of us are men and can fight; I am going to get my arrows", was the saying in one hunter-gatherer tribe whose name I forget. (Because among humans, unlike chimpanzees, weapons are an equalizer—the tribal chieftain seems to be an invention of agriculture, when people can't just walk away any more.)Maybe it's because I grew up on the Internet in places where there was always a sysop, and so I take for granted that whoever runs the server has certain responsibilities. Maybe I understand on a gut level that the opposite of censorship is not academia but 4chan (which probably still has mechanisms to prevent spam). Maybe because I grew up in that wide open space where the freedom that mattered was the freedom to choose a well-kept garden that you liked and that liked you, as if you actually could find a country with good laws. Maybe because I take it for granted that if you don't like the archwizard, the thing to do is walk away (this did happen to me once, and I did indeed just walk away).And maybe because I, myself, have often been the one running the server. But I am consistent, usually being first in line to support moderators—even when they're on the other side from me of the internal politics. I know what happens when an online community starts questioning its moderators. Any political enemy I have on a mailing list who's popular enough to be dangerous is probably not someone who would abuse that particular power of censorship, and when they put on their moderator's hat, I vocally support them—they need urging on, not restraining. People who've grown up in academia simply don't realize how strong are the walls of exclusion that keep the trolls out of their lovely garden of "free speech".Any community that really needs to question its moderators, that really seriously has abusive moderators, is probably not worth saving. But this is more accused than realized, so far as I can see.In any case the light didn't go on in my head about egalitarian instincts (instincts to prevent leaders from exercising power) killing online communities until just recently. While reading a comment at Less Wrong, in fact, though I don't recall which one.But I have seen it happen—over and over, with myself urging the moderators on and supporting them whether they were people I liked or not, and the moderators still not doing enough to prevent the slow decay. Being too humble, doubting themselves an order of magnitude more than I would have doubted them. It was a rationalist hangout, and the third besetting sin of rationalists is underconfidence.This about the Internet: Anyone can walk in. And anyone can walk out. And so an online community must stay fun to stay alive. Waiting until the last resort of absolute, blatent, undeniable egregiousness—waiting as long as a police officer would wait to open fire—indulging your conscience and the virtues you learned in walled fortresses, waiting until you can be certain you are in the right, and fear no questioning looks—is waiting far too late.I have seen rationalist communities die because they trusted their moderators too little.But that was not a karma system, actually.Here—you must trust yourselves.A certain quote seems appropriate here: "Don't believe in yourself! Believe that I believe in you!"Because I really do honestly think that if you want to downvote a comment that seems low-quality... and yet you hesitate, wondering if maybe you're downvoting just because you disagree with the conclusion or dislike the author... feeling nervous that someone watching you might accuse you of groupthink or echo-chamber-ism or (gasp!) censorship... then nine times of ten, I bet, nine times out of ten at least, it is a comment that really is low-quality.You have the downvote. BAN repetitive price speculative focused SPAMMERS
Got in two of them (LRC & NANO) because of the hype created here. I cut my losses and got out of LRC for good but I still like XNO. It still has lots of room to improve on listening to people on how to prevent damages caused by possible spam attacks and reaction time of Nano Foundation can improve as well. NANO's biggest positive side for me is the fact it introuced me to BAN (Banano) community. Those people are just awesome.
