Must know Hive sites/dapps & Splinterlands Giveaway #28
Hello fellow Hivians!
Today I wanted to cover some of the must know sites for not only Splinterlands players but anyone that is regularly interacting on the Hive Network.
- BeeSwap: BeeSwap is as you would expect a Hive powered swap/dex. Although it doesn't offer the ability to list buy or sell orders it does allow you to easily swap between 2 paired tokens, manage your Hive wallet, and manage your liquidity pool (lp) contributions, and most notably convert between swap.hive and Hive.
This same functionality is offered by the more widely used TribalDex as well but BeeSwap offers a miniscule .25% fee compared to the hefty 1% fee you will find on most of the other DEXs.
Although not specifically better than other DEXs one thing I REALLY like about BeeSwap is how it breaks out the APRs for lps. Most DEXs simply tell you the raw reward wheras BeeSwap gives you the full pixture. Check out the APR on those BXT rewarded pools!!!
- Hive Blocks: This tool will allow you to look at the stats of your Hive account as well as transactions, blocks, and just about anything else going on in the blockchain. Most notably this tool is great at showing you what kind of power your current and max RC is capable of. For example, my currently staked Hive is giving me a significant amount of voting and comment capabilities easily allowing 100+ of each interaction.
- dBuzz: dBuzz is sort of like the Twitter of the Hive community. It is great for those quick little one-offs that you want to share with the Hive community. Note that posts are generally capped at 1 Hive rewards.
- dLease: dLease is an incredibly innovative tool. This site effectively allows users to either take out or provide termed loans of Hive Power which are automatically enforced by Hive smart contracts. Generally the APR/Interest for using dLease is around 10-15%. This doesn't seem great as a user at first glance but given a 1 week lease would allow a user to get started with writing and would give the user some significant curation power for the time means that new users could utilize this service once to easily convert a small amount of hive into a larger amount given that curation and posting generally has a higher return than the price of renting Hive.
- GiftGiver: Gift giver is a temporary Hive faucet. If you have no hive power, you can go to the site, and request a temporary delegation of ~16 HP by putting in your user name. This is a great initiative for supporting new Hivians struggling with RC issues although it is often empty.
- HiveStats: Hivestats is one of the tools supported by the awesome financed focused LeoFinance tribe which gives you a breakdown of your Hive accounts earnings including current and pending curation rewards, your estimated curation APR, and an easy to read transaction tracker. HiveStats is very similar to the HiveBlocks tool noted above but it wraps all of that data up in a nice pretty bow that is easy to read and present.
- Splinterlands Report Card: The SPL report card is a wonderful tool created by @kiokizz / Splinterstats that summarizes an accounts achievement from the following season and formats it into an easy to use post. This has been the best tool so far that I've found for tracking DEC earnings. This may not be a big deal to most of us but if you are in the US this will be a critical function to accurately file taxes. You can check out my latest post using this tool here.
- Splinterlabs: This is a brand new faucet setup by @chansetheguy to support new and struggling Splinterlands players. If you are well to do, I strongly encouraging you to look into the Splinterlabs projects and support if you can. This faucet is community funded and distributes 5% of its holdings to users every 10 minutes or so.
Now lets get to what you are all actually here for, the giveaway!
