HIVE NEWS @ 23 May 2020 - Rebooting the News

in #hive11 months ago (edited)

The News is back.

Corona related issues have been an over distraction for the past couple of months. Now with some degree of normality returning, it's time to post again.

This first reboot issue will be a little catch-up, and a little mind the gaps, but a full service should be returning in two or three days.

This edition includes news and updates about Spinterlands, Upbit Exchange, D.Buzz, HiveOnboard,, Cryptobrewmaster, BUILDTEAM and the Block Party.

HIVE NEWS aims to primarily cover news about new developments and activities on the Hive blockchain that might interest and attract people to Hive.

The developments on another blocktrain currently affecting the funds of 60+ Hivians will not therefore be reported here in depth. They have already been covered at great length by others.

Reference to recent posts by @apshamilton will provide ample information for anyone wanting to know more about the situation.

I am glad for your return - it is very convenient for me to read the main thing in one place!

Happy to provide a useful service.

Hi @pennsif we just opened up the first Hive Lottery community you can check it out here. Thanks for sharing the news!

Very nice to see your work on Hive too.

The @commentcoin project is still under developing and we look for offer a product nearly on the "ideal" solution @ we start the project one year ago.

Have a nice HIVE Time


Now following @commentcoin to keep up to date.

Thank you

Your hyperlinks are going to and not working. Looking at these figures at high level , do you think, hive is doing good progress ?

Thanks for the spot on the links - now fixed.

I haven't been tracking the stats until now - but will be watching carefully over the coming weeks.

Even after all the destruction done by corona, I'm glad that it has given more time for the nature to heal itself as all the human monsters are in lock down and quarantine. I'm glad that the number of population of many animals is increasing. The air and water pollution is decreasing as well. I believe that there should be voluntary lock down throughout the world once a year at least.
I hope everyone around the world is safe with their family. Good luck to everyone who is reading this.
Have a good day !

Thank you

Good to see you back, disappointing numbers for Dolphins and Orca's, there's more on that other place.. er.. STEEM.

Reckon the numbers will begin to balance out over the coming weeks.

Hope you and BB are keeping well over your way.

Nice to see your news roundups again. I particularly appreciate the summaries of the DHF. At the risk of becoming unwieldy, it would also be nice to see those same website stats for PeakD in addition to

Hi Bryan, good idea re PeakD. Just checked the numbers are available, will add them in.

OMG @pennsif you're back!!! I missed your Steem News previously because I get myself updated through it most of the time. Thanks for bringing this back man!

Hi Z, hope you are keeping well. Are you still doing the insect project? (hope I have remembered that right)

Haha, nope, didn't work out. :( Hope you're doing well too.

All good here now thanks.

I'm glad to see you back share the latest happenings with us.

Thank you.

epic comeback!

Looking like good progress with Cryptobrewmaster. Do drop me any announcement links so I don't miss them.

Sure thing!
you are now on my special list)

Thank you

Good to see steemhive news back!

Thank you.

Welcome back @pennsif, good to see the updates coming in and a great place for people to see ongoing projects. I haven't come across some of these topics you mentioned so good to see and hopefully those numbers will be increasing as time goes on at the bottom 😃

There's lots going on. May take me a few days to catch up on everything happening.

Good luck with catching up!

Thank you. If you spot anything I miss do drop me a link.

Well, we are still doing our monthly Top 3 contest where we look to ask the Hive community what their Top 3 favourite things are about a specific topic. Always loads of engagement on the entries and HBD prizes always available with quarterly and yearly leagues running on @yourtop3 - next round starts on 1st.

Might be nice to have something else to think about other than all of life's dramas 🙂

I will keep a look out for the monthly top 3 contest.

Hope to start up the Contests list again soon.

Yeah will be good to see what other fun things are going on around here, will keep a look at 😃

It's great to have this back. There is lots going on with Hive even if you ignore the Steem drama. Hope you and the family are doing okay. Is your garden feeding you?

Hi Steve, yes plenty to fill the news each day!

The garden is producing well. Just got some leeks and kale for lunch, and I think the lettuces will be ready for tea.

After some necessitated changes in work, life here is sorting out and settling down again here. Hope all going good over your way.

We're all fine. Getting a few things from the garden and more plants going in. Hope to be productive this year.

Yes, productivity in the garden has moved up a couple of notches this year.

We're starting to get lots of strawberries. I like things that don't need too much work, but I have been weeding them a fair bit.


I'm glad to see you back! Per the normal I look forward to these updates. Less search time is always a good thing for me!
