Lots of exciting announcements in this update! Let's start by answering an important question: "What can I buy with Manna?"


Manna Supporters Launch Online Store

Check out MannaBasics, where now you can buy food and other essential products with Manna currency. MannaBasics.com was started as an independent initiative, not by the Mannabase team itself. We're proud that members of the Manna community are starting great projects like this. Several Mannabase employees have already bought food from this store and had it delivered – yum!

MannaBasics describes its mission: "to grow the use of Manna by making it possible to get a basic necessity with it – food. ... We only accept Manna as payment, and we sell our goods as close to cost as possible ... We believe everyone has a right to food – and the more people receive and use a basic income, the easier it will be to fulfill the vision of a world without want."

At this time, MannaBasics only delivers to customers in the United States. We encourage Manna supporters to create similar online stores around the world.

If you want to buy products with Manna and need more of the currencythan you receive as basic income, you can buy Manna on the marketRemember: Every time you buy and use Manna, you're helping Manna gain value and become a more legitimate currency – and you're increasing the value everyone receives as UBI.


Manna Team Starts Blog on Steemit

Steemit is a blogging platform where readers reward bloggers with cryptocurrency. Check out our new Steemit blog, where we write about the Manna project, Universal Basic Income, economics, blockchain, and related subjects.

Money we earn on Steemit will be used to support the price of Manna – so please start reading our blog and upvoting our articles!


Founders Interviewed on Video

Check out these videos from the Block2theFuture conference last month in San Francisco:

  • [Image: a57e4eb7-f4d6-4cfd-8e50-d94bd93f1fb6.png]Manna founder Eric Stetson and co-founder Jon Frechin speaking on stage in panel discussion with basic income activist Scott Santens.

Rapid Growth of Mannabase Continues!

We're up to 185,000 registered users, and growing at a rate of 1,000 to 2,000 new users per day. 90,000 people have gone through the full signup process to verify their account for UBI distributions.

With a user base this big and growing so fast, we're planning to build a lot more on Mannabase – to develop it into a platform for direct giving to targeted groups of people, nonprofit organizations, and creators like artists and musicians who deserve a basic income.

We'll be sharing more details of our business plan in the coming weeks. The UBI distributions are just the beginning... so stay tuned!

Thank you for your support for the Manna project![/size]

Cryptos Banano Coin Update! (Nano Fork) Fee-less Dag
Posted by: Decentralized Investor - 05-12-2018, 02:08 AM - Forum: Blawks - Replies (1)

Hello!  

It's been a while since we posted anything official on here so just checking in with you all. Most of you know the score from being active on discord (if you haven't already you should join our 8,000 members) but for the ones who don't use discord here's a little bit of what's been going on.
 
Team
Our team has grown considerably in the recent weeks some are new some have been with us a while but I'll introduce them anyway.
 
* AJsharkk - Web Developer and the creator of our amazing new site http://banano.co.in
* Anemone - Meme historian aka the guy on the couch
* Bbedward - Creator and manager of our riggedbot erm I mean tipbot.
* Coranos - A coding wizard, currently implementing BANANO on the Nano ledger S.
* Fusha - Another coding genius, Fusha is our very own Colin.
* Jeshka - Created our Discord Faucet (release soon) and is now looking into building our very own exchange.
* Mitch - Game Developer, I'm sure you all know Mitch already.
* Morgan - Meme lord.
* Randomizer - Creator of monKey™ (stay tuned)
* Red - Part time genius, full time Alcoholic.
* Yekta - Leonardo Da Banano.
 
What's going off?
Things are still in the early stages but we have lots of ideas being put to good use and now we have a fully committed team it won't be long before you start hearing about the projects in more detail but I'll outline a few just to give you some juicy info to read but the rest is staying a secret.
 
First up the monKey™ - Randomizers superb and fun creation, Turn your account ID into a unique one of a kind monKey that nobody else will have but you. From different eye colours to funky accessories, designer clothing and facial expressions this monKey will be a visual representation of your account ID. You will be able to use this in all future Banano projects including using the monkey as a playable character on the Banano Runner game.
 
Then we have the Banano Nano Ledger S project by Coranos, this is almost ready to go and is already built into our web wallet. Coranos has put some great effort into this, fully coded from scratch including creating his own font just for the display and is now tying up the loose ends before sending it in for ledger review.
 
BBedward has created our Discord tipbot and is constantly upgrading and adding new features, Giveaway and Rain features are the most popular but he has just created a trading escrow feature to stop scammers and to provide a safe and secure way to trade Banano until we are on an exchange.
 
MeltingIce was kind enough to port over his Nano explorer to Banano, it's available now at http://banano.meltingice.net and is full of useful and interesting information about the Banano network. I believe after some modifications we will be using this for our official explorer so get to know it!
 
Mitch has been continuously improving the Banano Runner game, we have had setback after setback but he never fails to let it beat him. A small minority of people like to try and abuse the system which causes headaches for us all but we manage to stop them every time. keep trying though guys Wink. The runners last event had over 13,000 players with a total of 20M+ Banano earned. The payments for security reasons are still manually checked and paid right now which is why we are currently having delays for the last events payment but don't worry we're working on processing them as fast as we can.
 
The vault has had a couple of upgrades, transactions are now shown in real time, no refreshing needed, you can now visualise the speed of Banano in all its glory. Plus now we allow you to manage 15 accounts under one seed!
 
Whats next?
We promised you the airdrop was going to be in May so our main priority is to get that distribution flowing, we had a LOT of people register for the airdrop so it's a difficult task to complete on our deadline but we are working full speed on this, we've even had to buy extra hardware to ensure it goes as smooth as possible. Don't worry if you missed the registration though, we have another back up airdrop planned for the guys who came late to the party.
 
Once we have that out of the way, we can consider looking at possible exchange listings. A lot of people are asking why we aren't doing that now but we believe it's pointless until the majority of distribution has taken place so that is our priority. As well as getting listed on an exchange we are going to also going to introduce our own exchange too. Bananograil, what could possibly go wrong? or maybe should we go for Bananex! but more on that later.
 
Oh and stay tuned for the yellow paper, we're a little behind on the deadline but I promise you it will be worth the wait!

Cryptos Sneak DAG Naming
Posted by: Decentralized Investor - 05-12-2018, 12:32 AM - Forum: Blawks - No Replies

[color=rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7)]Top 5 of the poll ranked by number of points:

1) Sneak (38)
2) Blur (25)
3) Zil (20)
4) Night (12)
5-6) Veneno & Velocity (10)

Seeing the level of participation (16 participants), and the fact that Sneak was still largely in first place in the poll, we feel like this is a sign that the active community right now feels like Sneak is a decent name on average and that we need to grow and mature some more for the branding to become an issue.The ideas and debates around the branding are still valid nonetheless, and will certainly reappear in due time some time later in the future. Many thanks to all the people who contributed with discussions, suggestions and thanks to
[/color]@houdini[color=rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7)]  who created the poll and gathered the answers.

We will archive this channel for now until the project grows, the community with it and we feel like there is a need to consider a new name again, any related discussion is still welcome in
[/color]#general[color=rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7)] !

Thank you again to all the members who participated!

Cryptos Sneak Privacy DAG Crypto Announcement
Posted by: Decentralized Investor - 05-12-2018, 12:30 AM - Forum: Blawks - No Replies

[color=rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7)]We're releasing Universal Blocks, before any other releases. We would like to run tests and also identify if there are any unforeseen bugs. 

For those who do not have access to the alpha-channel will be posting 2 images (see below) that allows you to visibly notice a difference in the Sneak architecture. Not only does this allow for faster transactions / communication, it gives Sneak scalability (storage & size) and speed which increases the overall performance for future releases and cryptography & technology implementations. 

Things to note: 

1. We no longer have regular addresses - which means Stealth addresses are compulsory

2. Stealth Addresses can only be rewarded once (for Alpha testers - so make sure you reward yourself with enough SNKs) 

Happy week!
