HIVE NEWS @ 18 March 2020 - A new News Service for a new Chain

in hive •  5 months ago 

This is the first edition of HIVE NEWS.

Hive is new, the news is new, and it's moving fast. So it's going to take a few days to make sure all the right sources are being followed to pick up the latest developments.

If you spot anything that has been missed please comment below, or message on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

Suggestions on sections to include and stats to pick up on are welcome.



First the basics...

The new Hive fork of the Steem blockchain was announced yesterday.

The Hive.io site is already live, but the new Hive chain will not be switched on until Friday, 2pm UTC.

Steem accounts and posts will be carried across and there will be a 1:1 airdrop of the new Hive coins for existing STEEM, Steem Power and SBD. The airdrop will be for all accounts except Steemit Inc related accounts...

The only accounts who will not be included in the initial airdrop are those containing the Steemit Inc ninja-mined stake, and those who actively contributed to (and publicly declared support for) the centralization of the Steem Blockchain.



Apps, dApps & Projects...

Many of the main apps, dApps and projects have announced they will be either be moving exclusively to Hive, or at least dual-running on both chains.

Those confirmed as moving, or operating on Hive, include Steempeak (to be rebranded), Actifit, Steemitworldmap & Haveyoubeenhere, SteemStem (now HiveStem), Curiesteem.com, Dpoll, Steem.Chat (now openhive.chat), OCD and thegoodwhales.com, C-Squared, Global Blacklist API, Curangel...

@smooth has announced that @burnpost will move to Hive...

And @splinterlands has now announced its plans regarding Hive...



Witnesses...

The large majority of former top witnesses have declared their support for Hive including...

Witness @jackmiller is looking to set up a 'radio show' about Hive...

And @thecryptodrive has declared his support for Hive, but will also be trying to save Steem as well...



Community...

There has been a large groundswell of support for Hive from all levels in the community including...

And people have questions too...



Exchanges...

Already two major exchanges have declared they will support the Airdrop for STEEM held on their exchanges.

@jrcornel, @rycharde and @jayplayco report on Binance...

I would like to see the list of the 30 developers on Hive.io!

Some great news in there. Hoping @steemchiller finds it worthwhile to offer a steemworld clone.

"I'm still processing the new reality that is coming to light these days. Not much money/motivation left to be able to continue something that failed with the same people again.

I won't leave Steem, that for sure. If hive needs a HiveWorld (would prefer a different name) and I would earn enough for all the work and new servers/domains, I might join, but at the moment I stay cautious.

Two things must be done on hive at least:

Limit the number of witness votes one account can do to ~ 5
Disable witness votes for active witnesses (kings should not be able to vote for sub kings)"

It’s time for the next step in our crypto adventure. Can’t wait for the hive to open. Community power!

I like the name more. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

We also support Hive.

Hi @pennsif, thank you for all this very complete information. Do you have any information about Bittrex? Someone told me they will do but I can't find any confirmation.

Thank you for the update.

Thanks for putting all this info together! Just what I needed and it looks like I’ve got some reading to do so better stock up on some nice beer to help

Thank you!

Thanks for putting together this New HIVE News! Makes things a little more comprehensive to see it all together in one place!
Looking forward to future issues on the new Hive blockchain!

Awesome! Looking forward to the new future..

bizz-BUZZ!

:thinking: wasn't just Binance and Huobi part of the "hostile takeover" on steem?! And everyone was: "go leave binance, take the money and run, spam the message all over to never use their services anymore!"
