Join us as we bring you another epic Discovery of the Day! There’s an entire universe of projects to check out in the wider cryptoverse, and we’re doing our best to bring you some of the most promising ones around! If it has a great community, amazing developers and some awesome features, then we want to know about it! Without further ado, today we present: Solana Bananas!
A Banana Republic?
Dictators, despots, authoritarians, tyrants…call ’em whatever you want, but there have been a bunch of ’em over the years. Those that presided over economies that depended almost exclusively on the exportation of agricultural goods, particularly coffee or bananas, were the undisputed leaders of what became known as Banana Republics. Yes, trouble in paradise, Far Cry 1 without the trigens, tropical travesties—you get the idea.
What does this have to do with our Discovery of the Day? Everything and nothing of course. Solana Bananas is an NFT collection of 1,500 flavorsome fruits hanging in the plantations of the Solana Blockchain. Each of these entirely unique bananas is algorithmically generated and stored with proof of ownership on Solana’s fast, efficient and secure Blockchain. As an added bonus, when a user mints a Solana Banana, they will have the chance to mint an ultra rare Banana like the treasured Golden Banana, or a Zombie Banana.
Every Banana is made up from over 130 different attributes including background color, facial expression, hairstyle, eyewear, skin color, apparel, clothing and so on. Certain attributes are rarer than others, but regardless of what a user receives, there will only ever be 1,500 Solana Bananas.
Solana Bananas wants to give back to the world, which is exactly why 10% of all proceeds will go directly towards the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund . As an organization that protects critically endangered mountain gorillas through research, training, community outreach, and constant on-the-ground presence in Rwanda, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund needs sufficient support to ensure their work is carried out unimpeded. Solana Bananas believe this cause to be very much aligned with their values and the theme behind their lively NFT project.
And now let’s take a look at some of these brilliant Bananas up-close:
Snake Banana Skin is here to chew gum and retain his ripeness…and he’s all outta ripeness
Hours in the Miami sun left Bert Banana feeling uncharacteristically red
Bullish Blue Banana brazenly binges barbital brands
Ba Na Na Naaaaa…Ba Na Na Naaaaa (It’s Beethoven)
Forgive the onomatopoeia, it’s nearly impossible for me to write such a Potassium-rich post like this without making a pun or two. So the Solana Bananas Roadmap (which you can also view in their Discord ) is detailed below for your convenience. Q3 of 2021 has come and gone, but it seems like there’s a fair amount planned for the coming months and all the way into the second quarter of 2022. Very nice stuff. Anyway, see for yourself:
It’s important to keep in mind that, unlike many other projects that feature several thousand generative NFTs, Solana Bananas is limited to a mere 1,500. This means fewer owners, greater rarity and, if all goes according to plan, higher value as the months and years roll by. From what I can tell, the project is moving along at a healthy pace and has a suitably strong community behind it.
Solana Bananas is currently sold out, so if you want to pick one up, you’ll need to head over to their Solanart page and buy one there. Now how about some stats?
