What is an AMA?

AMA is a format popular on Reddit where one person offers to answer questions for a limited period of time.

How long will I answer questions?

I will usually answer them pretty quickly, and I should be around for a few hours. I will continue to answer them as they come in.

What type of questions can you ask?

I'm open to pretty much anything but I can give the best answers about:

  • Hive
  • Hive Witness
  • Crypto
  • PCs
  • Gaming (Video, Board, Crypto)
  • NFTs
  • Minecraft
  • Elden Ring
  • Popping off in Hunt: Showdown
  • Ape Mining Club
  • Hive Punks
  • Photography
  • Development
  • Technology
  • 3D Printing
  • Productivity
  • Movies & TV
  • Comedy
  • Memes
  • Pool maintenance

Don't feel limited to the above categories, just things I generally know about.

Hi Mark,
what do you think we have to do in order to promote HBD out of our ecosystem?

I think one of the biggest things would be getting HBD on more exchanges with more liquidity.

I think attempts to get HBD listed are in progress, but it isn't easy and I am not sure any one specific person is dedicated on the task.

Do you think the 20% APR on HBD would be reduced if Hive dumps to $0.11 and HBD printing stops? 🤔

Hard to say, it isn't up to just one person. I also don't see Hive going down to $0.11. The next hard fork will raise the HBD print threshold considerably.

Since the dawn of time, any time I'd go to sign up for something and make an account, I'd enter my name, fill everything else out, hit send, and be rejected. "That name is already taken." I tried them all. CoolDude1, CoolDude2, CoolDude3, and so on. All taken. So, finally out of frustration, I tried to send these account makers a message. Nonameslefttouse. If there was more room I would've said I don't have time for this as well or at least add a question mark but instead, just to mess with me, they gave me this name. Which isn't a name. All the names were taken. The rest is history.

Well they all have their accounts on Hive but a few things happened.

First I was removing Steemit delegations from abusers from the redeemer project.

Second all Steemit delegations are gone on Hive due their their Hive and Hive power going to DHF.

So while all their accounts are here they took advantage of free delegation they don’t have now.

That is fake news mate... No one is complaining about Hive over on Blurt, but they all hate the Markinators guts over there. That is actually quite understandable though, because he mobbed pretty much each and everyone of them off of Hive with his downvote sprees and his downvote circle buddies...

Funny how I see so many bitching about it then :) With those who do I often know why they got downvoted. Attacking the community is not good for your account and it tends to happen after they got caught out trying to game the system. I've always found Marky to be a good citizen of Hive, but he's entitled to react to personal attacks. Not much you can do about him posting on Blurt. It's not like he cares about the rewards.

And I can post anything I want here, I don't care about the rewards either... I don't care about his DVs either.. Marky is a total hypocrite. Everything he has done, i. e. getting paid out over on Blurt, would have been nuked here on Hive by the Markinator, if it had been somebody else, but Marky is more 'equal' than others here. 😉 His rules don't apply to himself... I just wrote a post about it...

we're only here becaused we vowed to work with any free transactional systems because we believe that can set people free but we've found this place is a farce. okay well if you change your mind you know where to find us. marky mark you shouldn't underestimate him.. as you can see he has an army of morons like him and if you're not here to fight or make changes then you're wasting your time my friend it's not going to do anything

bitcoin myk will eventually bring everyone over because most of the world will want free transactions in the future and not a top up bottom down society.. with machines and robots will be no reason for people like marky mark and he knows his oligarchy will soon fail. so he's afraid of us.. but if you're just here to shout at marky mark it doesn't do anything best to have a plan.. now they attacking blurt because blurt has like a similar layout as dpos which is a failed system they all will become like hive but our algo works on proof of participation.. nobody can carry more value over you unless it's through merit it's a time attention value system.. not a stakeweighted system which eventually will always fail like hive will

So take a number it's alot more people don't like marky mark than you know.. but people don't want to mess up their money.. they just wanna make it and go home and i can't blame them and they just don't wanna play with marky marky.

i like playing with marky mark because i know he's going down. The problem with them is they either shut up or take their money and go and marky mark such a dummy he doesn't quite get he messing up his own money because he's a moron lol.

The rest are too cowardly. i can live with being many things but being a coward and living in fear and make no mistake about it.. this is a fear culture.. maybe you understand " fear culture" anyway here's a token of friendship marky marky will try to tell you it's worthless.. you should see for yourself maybe you can buy some more blurt.. take care

Considering all the active (playable) games and a plethora of games in development on Hive, do you think, a rebranding for Hive as a gaming-hub would be advantageous for the next bull run?

Speaking of Hive-games. Do you play or invest in any of them? It'd be interesting to know. Especially for Rising Star, Splinterlands and the upcoming game WOO (Wrestling Organization Online).

I don't think a rebranding will happen, but there can be third party brands that act as hubs.

I do not play, but I have a significant investment in Splinterlands since launch, I just released a collaboration with Rising Star, I never heard of WOO.

Thank you for the answer. YouTube is working great as a personal storage for many people since 2005. I have videos on it since 2008, and I have radioamateur videos on it since 2012. Some people upload multiple videos to it every day. It is a great platform to store and archive content (mostly videos). Hopefully the Hive blockchain will also work for many people for decades.

Hey Marky! I hope you're very well, my question has to do with Hive and is as follows:

After all the trouble you've had with Newflash and the recent Downvotes war, will you at some point think again about creating another whitelist of authors eligible to receive votes from you? Or is it totally out of the question that you're going to vote for people in the future the way you did for years?

I appreciate your time and your willingness to do these AMAs so I'll leave another question down here as a bonus that has nothing to do with Hive:

What do you think is the scariest game you've ever played on PC?

I think I'm just going to vote hbd stabilizer and burn posts for now on. I doubt he will stop, he has no reputation (he is universally hated), he has no projects, he isn't a witness, he doesn't post for votes so he has nothing to lose and it doesn't cost him anything.

I am thinking about powering down all my stake and move it to multiple anonymous accounts or just keeping it liquid. This is the only token I own that has caused this much drama and time. I have been powering up for 5 years now and I am one of the most benevolent voters and largest abuse fighter. He has made that something I can no longer do. It’s not really worth it for 10% apr.

What do you think is the scariest game you've ever played on PC?

Probably Fear. I am sure Outlast is scarier but I haven’t played it.

Not sure to be honest. There was a lot of pieces of it. I had to recreate something akin to nft showroom, create the backend to handle minting, and the generation code. I went beyond expectations trying to create “Real-time Rarity” but this was a waste of time as it sold so fast it didn’t matter and caused more work than needed. It was a cool experiment though.

It is of psychological nature... He is jealous of others being successful on the blockchain. He has mobbed so many accounts off of Hive, that they cannot be counted anymore. Little Marky was probably a playground bully, when he was a kid, repeating his behavioral patterns here on the blockchain with big stake... Instead of getting a life, he seeks the attention here... To cover the whole thing up, he will start telling you something about too much earnings, a 'milked' reward pool etc. blabla... The truth is: He himself milks the reward pool! To be clear: It is OK, when HE does it! Hey, after all... It's Marky... 😉

In my opinion I do not think these posts are needed. This has been going on for way too long.

I hope you do not mind, but it is hard to me to observe this drain on the reward pool on automated posts where many original contributors do not get enough.

I have no idea, I didn't really know him. Most of the drama was from Steem I believe in SteemSpeak server but I didn't hang out there much. He started to harass me when I responded to a comment of his in the Pulse Discord. He claims to be so mentally ill he can't stand trial, but is well enough to know that thus throwing that out the window. He needs to be locked up somewhere he is a danger to himself and anyone near him.
