This is a faucet that pays you an amount of Banano after each video (YouTube) or track (Soundcloud) you watch/hear.


To get rewarded from JungleTV, you need to link your wallet address and verify your identity by temporarily changing your Banano representative.


  1. Click "Earn Rewards" in the top banner.
  2. Enter your Banano address and press next.
  3. Temporarily change your representative to the one displayed.
  4. Change back to your previous representative (optional).
  5. Watch videos/listen to tracks and earn.



Longest allowed video duration is 35 minutes.[1] However, longer videos may be added by splitting them into segments of 35 minutes or less.

Live streams[]

To be enqueued, there has to be at least 50 people watching the stream on YouTube. The stream will be played for exactly 10 minutes.



JungleTV also offers an opt-in feature which makes the video unskippable, but raises video cost by 6.9 times. As long as the user sends an amount of Banano that is equal or greater than provided price, JungleTV adds the video to the queue and follows user's chosen option.

Live streams[]

Price for streams is the same as videos.

Enqueueing options[]


There are three available options to enqueue a video.

Adding the video to the end of the queue[]

This is the option to enqueue a video for lowest price.

Playing the video right after the current playing video[]

The system adds video to the queue, and it will be played when the current video ends. This tier charges more Banano.

Skipping the current video and play immediately[]

This option is the most expensive one. The playing video will be skipped and rewards from it get distributed to all eligible viewers.

Protect video from being skipped[]

When enabled, the fees used to enqueue video will be increased by 6.9 times. Moderators still can skip unskippable videos.

Selecting a part of the video[]

This allows users to enqueue any videos, regardless of original video's duration. Users can choose to play a part of video (35 minutes or shorter).

Live streams[]

Users have the right to make live broadcasts unskippable, and the three enqueueing options for videos are also applied for streams.[2]


Video requester tiers[]

The name of users will be highlighted differently, depending on their queueing history in the last 4 hours.

JungleTV points[]

JungleTV first introduced the system on May 2, 2022 in which user can earn points from solving captchas, chatting, and enqueueing media. The length of the media is correlation to the amount of rewards in points. The points can be used to send GIF in the chat, reposition videos in the queue, reduce community skip fees, as well as subscribe to the Nice subscription.

Users can also buy JungleTV points with Banano at the rate of 0.01 BAN per point. [3]

Nice subscription[]

At the price of 6900 Nice points, this monthly subscription allows subscribers to send Banano emojis (ported from Banano Discord server, and custom emojis created by the community or JungleTV), decreases the JungleTV points needed on operations requiring them, and reduces captcha frequency.


Commands can be used by all viewers in the chat section.


Changes your displayed nickname. The maximum length of the nickname is 16 characters.

Disallowed emojis in nickname: 🛡️🔰🛡⚔️⚔🗡️🗡🗡️

Toggles between dark and light mode.

Crowfunded skipping and community tipping[]

The features are available when the queue is active.

Crowfunded skipping[]

JungleTV has a pool for skipping videos. If the pool receives enough Banano, the playing video will be skipped. The amount of required Banano depends on the video. Skipping fund will always be added to the payout of the video, even it doesn't reach skipping threshold. This feature is not available for unskippable videos.[4]

Community tipping[]

This reward pool goes toward a video's reward. Anyone can increase payout amount by sending Banano to tip address. The enqueuer of the video will receive 20% of the tip if they are active on the website in the last 15 minutes before the video ends.[5]

Events and activities[]

Enqueuing raffle[]

JungleTV hosts a weekly raffle where the winner is picked randomly in a fair and provable way at 00:00 UTC every Monday.[6]


A recurring weekly event often hosted on Tuesday at 19:00 UTC. In rare cases, there can be an additional Tunesday taking place in another day of the week[7]. Tunesday participants have to enqueue media that fits the theme each time[8]. Sometimes, there can be more than 150 entries eligible for rewards, however, each user still is eligible for maximum 3 entries.



Since September 2021, Banano team started to officially fund JungleTV. gbl08ma holds the private key of JungleTV's dev fund account. Banano sponsored by the team will be used for events hosted on JungleTV[9].


On September 24, 2021, JungleTV got linked on Banano official website.

JungleTV took the first place in the hackathon contest Booster (2021)[10].

JungleTV was the winner of the award "Best Distribution Method" in BANacademy Awards 2021[11] and BANacademy Awards 2022[12][13].


JungleTV Application Framework[]


Why should I change my representative?[]

Changing your representative is needed to verify the ownership of the Banano address. The representative is not a working representative and it doesn't affect your balance, as well as transactions.

Why is a WAX wallet necessary?[]

At the moment, JungleTV has a collaboration with CryptomonKeys[14], an NFT collection on WAX blockchain. Moreover, JungleTV also mints its NFTs on WAX. In order to claim the NFT rewards, users need to link a WAX address to their JungleTV identity.
