Hive Hard Fork 25 is Coming!

The upcoming Hive Hard fork, version 25 is entering the final rounds of testing. This new version adds a number of features. Recurring transfers add possibilities for use cases like subscriptions to support your favorite content creators. A new Hive to HBD conversion operation is expected to help stabilize the HBD peg. Governance votes for witnesses and proposals will expire after some time, to encourage active voting and remove the influence of inactive wallets. Hive's content curation curve is changing to encourage manual voting. Votes cast during the first 24 hours will have more of equal weight, and the 5-minute voting window is no more. The list of changes and fixes goes on and on...

Hard Fork 25 is expected to deploy in the last week of June (only a few weeks away). But it could shift to a later date if it's not ready.


This Week in Hive-Powered dApps, Tribes, & Tokens

Hive powers a growing number of decentralized apps (dApps). Since they all run on the same chain, one Hive account can access every app. Here's a quick summary of the Hive app landscape.

DBuzz Adds Wallet and Mobile Blog Site

This week @DBuzz team rolled out some dapp updates. The non-mobile app now has a built-in wallet for viewing balances and claiming rewards. A mobile version of (long-form content frontend) has also been released.

LeoFinance Launches Kingdoms

@LeoFinance team has added a new feature to the CubDefi platform called Kingdoms, which complements Farms and Dens. The unique feature of Kingdoms is auto-compounding. Meaning you don't have to claim and deposit periodically like you do for Farms and Dens, which incurs BSC transaction fees. Kingdoms are currently available for CAKE and BNB-BUSD token deposits.

Splinterlands announces SPS Governance Token

The big news in Hive blockchain games this week is the new Splinterlands governance token called Splintershards (SPS). SPS is a game-changer. The new tokens will be air-dropped in July to players based on what game assets they are holding.

The awesome, huge latest news on Hive... I'm not sure what I like more, the recurring transfers, or removing that 5 min thing with upvoting... Finally, we will have better curation and, of course, recurring transfers that should open a wide range of new possibilities!

I have picked this post on behalf of the @OurPick project and it will be highlighted in the next post!

Hope the hardfork goes smoothly. Need to get it done and move on. I hope to see more organic voting as a result. Less incentive to autovote in the first few mins.


We'll see. People tend to be creative when finding new methods of laziness.
