NOTE: The Telegram Tipbot we introduced on February 18th, 2019 had issues. Please make sure to withdraw your BANANO from the bot @banano_tipbot. We already are testing a new version of it, called @BANANOTipBot, which is currently tested in the Spanish, German and Chinese groups before full release. See brief instructions how to use below:

How to use the BANANO Telegram TipBot:

Two important things first:

  1. Please don’t beg in our Telegram groups in any form or you might get kicked. If you show interest and contribute to the discussion someone most likely will send you some BANANO. If you are new, say so and speak up so we can help you. Any questions are welcome!
  2. Don’t store BANANO long-term on your BANANOTipBot account, only keep there what you like to use for tipping others. Make sure to store your BANANO in wallet you control, like Kalium or BananoVault. Help getting started at
