Hive Just Keep Building

Over the weekend, I went on the CTT episode to discuss the latest application that is being added to the Hive lineup. It is scheduled to be released today and should be exciting for anyone who is on here.

Codename the "TaskApp", this is a reincarnation of Stumbleupon. Before getting into what this might do for the ecosystem, it is best to state that I had nothing to do with the development. This is coming from the #CTP crew, providing more innovation for the Hive blockchain. The reason I got the name is simply because of the months of harping upon them about it.

Also, this is not the real name so when it is finally released, the true one will be revealed.

From what I understand, we are about to get machine learning coming to Hive in a big way. The main premise behind the application is to learn what a particular individual likes in an effort to find more content.

Hence, we are dealing with a content discovery application that is fed Hive content. This is going to start with posts that are in the 7 day vote window and then proceed on from there.

Hive Keeps Building

It is safe to say that no other blockchain has something like this. In fact, other than Steem, nothing out there could even offer it.

Hive is unique in that it is a decentralized text database. As we repeatedly noted, this is not just a ledger of financial transactions. Hive houses a multitude of social media data, including long for blog post. We also have the video/audio capability through @3Speak, although only the text of the post is on the blockchain.

As time passes, it seems we get more unique features being built. @Podping is a prime example where @brianoflondon announced that 15% of all updated podcasts are received by applications via Hive. This is an incredible number for a project that is less than a couple years old. It is offering a significant cost savings to these companies through the ability to eliminate massive infrastructure needed to scan the feeds. Podping handles it all. The application only need to integrate into that.

What happens if this numbers get up to 40% or 50%? Considering the team is looking at building notifications in, a first in the podcasting world, this could be a service that any podcasting application will want.

The term "decentralized computing" is something we do not utilize enough but that is exactly what is taking place here. By writing open source code tied to the Hive blockchain, we can see how the ability to control podcasting indexing is nearly eliminated. Each layer of the system is not under the control of a single, large entity.

Post-FTX Revival

Most are aware of the earthquake that rippled through cryptocurrency due to the downfall of FTX. We have not seen the full impact of this yet or where it all leads.

Fortunately, it is my view, this is only a temporary situation. We will get passed this and there will be a post-FTX revival in cryptocurrency. It is impossible to guess how long it will take. Nevertheless, due to the rollout of new projects, we can see how the industry is moving forward.

Projects like Podping and the "TaskApp" help to put Hive in the center of the game. We are not focusing upon hype and coin pricing. Instead, there are people who are looking at things in terms of need, and filling it. This is what business people (entrepreneurs) do.

People still ask what need does cryptocurrency fill. Aside from the idea of immutable money, the main focus is on the projects. Tokenization is best when it is tied to something that is fixing a problem. Of course, as Podping shows, there is no token or coin tied to it. Instead, the decentralized infrastructure of Hive is what is important.

It is safe to say that Podping is solving a major need within the podcasting world.

Building The Social Media Offerings

Hive in the process of expanding its social media offerings. This is something that I do not often touch upon since most of my focus is finance. However, with the combination of the two, it is imperative we keep pushing both forward.

It is impossible to say the impact the "TaskApp" will have. Nevertheless, this is falling in line with an expanding list on Hive.

  • Liketu
  • Medium-style blogging
  • Listnerds - email marketing tool
  • 3Speak
  • LeoThreads/DBuzz - microblogging
  • TaskApp

That is a wide array of social media applications covering a lot of what people do online. The fact that each of these can be accessed through the same Hive account is really revolutionary. Elon Musk is trying to do the same thing with Twitter. He might have the advantage when it comes to users but Hive has a bunch of different applications covered.

And the great thing is we can expect more to roll out over the next few years.

This is Hive's advantage: people just keep building.

While Hive has always been on my radar since I am so heavily invested in it. I seem to always forget that I should be putting more than just my time into it. I wrote a post about that this morning and it is something that I am looking to change. I need to make a more concerted effort to build my account.

It take a group of dedicated, over the top people to make this puppy grow into what it can. So we can use the help.

Finding a need and filling it is one of the hallmarks of being an entrepreneur. With the 'Task App', content discovery on the Hive blockchain will be on a whole new level. On par with web 2.0 platforms or even better.

The addition of "TaskApp" to Hive could impact the ecosystem positively considering the social media giants utilized machine learning to feed us want is of interest to us whereby it benefits them. Having this on Hive can enhance, our feeds in a more precise way in addition to the community we currently subscribe to.

This sounds pretty awesome! First time I'm catching any information on it so I'll be testing it out for sure.

It is going to require a number of people all feeding the ML engine.

I hope they get it out soon. I have not seen an announcement today.

Just what Hive is missing, also would be nice if the app allows finding older relevant posts with ease

Well it wont find older content with ease, per se, especially at the start. But once they expand, it will allow for the resurfacing of older content.

The hive platform is one of the rare places to invest in the future. I am constantly discovering places within this platform. Hopefully in the future I will be able to invest

We just continue to build and I don't think I have used StumbleUpon before. I did hear about it though. I still think it's building quite a large amount of different applications but I think there still needs some refinement of the applications if we want it to take off.

That's amazing to hear!...I had this idea when I first discovered that kolony front end last year- it has the option to discover random recent posts....I suggested it get tweaked to come up with random topics to find...much like stumble upon

I'm glad someone is out there working on this though! Discovering content has definitely been a hurdle for hive

Good idea! Possibly we can add similar functionality to Kolony.org

What I originally pictured was a random topic finder...say you hit randomize, then you get 10 random topics, possibly discovering something new or interesting or a new account of interest. So, it would kinda be the opposite of the post finder picked from topics.

One other idea I've had for content discovery is:

I mostly use peakd, for example, where there are mainly two feeds, followers and communities. They do have a "favorites" section, but that looks like it is for favorite accounts, not favorite topics-which is where it could be more useful.

If I could just add my favorite topics, say "fishing" or "crafts," then I could go to my favorite topics feed and find people posting about my favorite topics, discovering more content on the chain, finding new people to follow. You can click on your favorite topics, but it is kinda clunky and not organized like a recent feed.

Because of the tagging system, I think it really makes sense for a front end to do this...then the others follow suit after seeing how great of a feature it would be!

Thank you for mentioning @dbuzz, @taskmaster4450.

  • We have a solid product now (after 3 years of developing this January), that's now ready to market.

  • I am interested in people coming together to guerilla market DBuzz/Hive on 3rd party frontends like #Twitter.

I also find it impressive that @brianoflondon's #Podping service has captured 15% of the active Podcast market.

If possible, I'd like to integrate #Podping with v4.0 of #DBuzz.

I really await the release of TaskApp. Like you noted, it would be a valuable addition as machine learning is an area that is rapidly evolving. So getting it on the hive blockchain will help users spend less time and stress to discover content based on passion and interests.

Elon Musk is trying to do the same thing with Twitter.

I believe we are already ahead of him as we have some of these Dapp collections increasing. Of course we have the advantage of a clean, decentralized governance free from all the Twitter controversies.

This message is quite interesting, from my research I have come to see hive as a social media Blockchain that's goes beyond financial benefits, hive platform puts one through some many things and helps one to grasp the real meaning of decentralization.
Thank you.
