What is give-to-earn?

Axie Infinity and others have demonstrated the power of "play-to-earn" - allowing players to make a living participating in a game. "Earn-to-give" is another model focused on pursuing high earning careers to then have money to give in the future.
OCM is experimenting with a new model we call "give to earn". This is a combination of "play to earn" and "earn to give". OCM wants to create opportunities where earning and giving reinforce each other. Bananas is one way we are experimenting with this philosophy.

Access, collection and interaction with Bananas via the OCM website, BananaBot in #🍌offchain-bananas and Bananas on Twitter is limited to verified OCM holders.

Are Twitter Bananas and Discord Bananas different?

Same OCM Bananas, but twice the number of platforms to earn and receive them. Bananas you earn on Twitter and from Discord #🍌 offchain-bananas are accumulated in one Banana Balance and tied to your Discord username ID and usable as an exclusive OCM ownership benefit. The only difference between Twitter Bananas and Discord Bananas is their individual Banana-earning cooldown or wait periods.

How often can I earn Bananas on Twitter and on Discord?

!RISE and give-to-earn each have individual Banana-earning cooldown or wait times on each of the social media platforms:
