BlockTrades offering Steem ↔ Hive Pair

in #blocktrades6 months ago

A lot of customers are requesting that we offer a Steem/Hive pairing, so despite my earlier plan not to offer one, we’ll be offering one for a while.

We’ll also be re-enabling other Steem pairs, to allow our users to smoothly transition to their preferred blockchain.

While I'm glad to see it, I'm assuming the business decision won't impact your operations much. Having all of that Steem on hand that people want to get rid of should hopefully not be difficult for you to then offload yourselves so you don't have that financial burden.

I figured we've made enough off the rise of Hive to cover the loss.

That's great then, I want to make sure you're not taking too much risk! Thanks!

Man of honor :)

Good thinking. The largest stakeholders and witnesses will have to take one for the team sometimes to keep our reputation from going back to a circle jerking fest. Thanks for offering this pair and I’m sure you will more than cover for losses :-)

I am really very happy to work on hive block chain and i hope it has better future.

Watch yourself Steem, winter is coming.

Thanks for opening up steem/sbd. A lot of people need your services so we do appreciate it.

How can this be?

It says I dont have enough STEEM when I am trying to send 2000 and there is 3000 in there.

Try sending manually. We haven't updated the UI yet, and maybe there is some issue with steemconnect.

I could be using this in a few days when I free up some Steem. Thanks

Thanks for doing this. If I can ask a question...
Since I'm unable to see what happens once I give my email address and password, can someone fill me in on what else will be required of me in order to finish signup?
I'm not looking to trade more than 1750 USD per day, so I think I would just need a basic account.
(If it matters, I'm hoping for a method to convert back and forth between Steem and Hive.)
Thanks for the service!

I published an article about DTube being fully compatible with Hive a few hours ago. A few minutes later I noticed @dtube being added to @spaminator black list no absolutely no reason. I believe @spaminator is somehow controlled by @themarkymark with his Global Blacklist API (funded by the DAO).

After complaining, the unfair blacklist for the @dtube account was removed. I was told it was an accident.

But now, 1 hour later:

The post had 150+ community members upvotes, and 1 evil witness downvote has turned the article to 0 visibility.

Hive is not censored? Let me laugh...

Time to clean up your ranks from the rotten ones, Hive witnesses.

Downvoting isn't censorship, since you can obviously still see the content.

Nice! I'm very glad to hear that, BlockTrades is my favorite trading system. I'm wondering if you use the Steem-Engine market at all for filling your orders?

we don't use it currently

Thanks, much appreciated

I swear it's a beautiful thing.

Very good news !!! It can be quickly, directly exchanged.

awesome ill be using it once my powerdown is done :)

this good news. because it can help members of the hive community can exchange coins quickly.

thanks so much!!!

This is great! Thanks so much!

Btw, when will the new platform with a trading pair for HIVE launch...any approximate dates...?

Maybe today, but more likely tomorrow.

Perfect, Thanks!

I would not have converted all my STEEMs to BTC had this option been there earlier! Now I will have to wait for a week for my next installment of powerdown to come :(

apologies if this is an inappropriate question, but if you trade out all the steem for hive, are youo guys going to dump all the steem tokens onto the exchanges? or are you planning on doing something with them? Im not aware of how you guys facilitate trades so excuse the ignorance.

We'll just sell them off on exchanges I think.

roger that. thanks for sharing.

by “a while” do you mean 13 weeks?? 😁

Blocktradees as an exchange is a lifeline for microtraders and in that sense it represents the middle class community. Just today I exchanged HBD to HIVE through Blocktrades. Thank you.

Just one question @blocktrades - Why the logo of HIVE is not showing in Blocktrades and only manual transfer option is available for HIVE?

We're working on updating the frontend web site right now. I hope it will be updated today, and I believe that will include the Hive logo as well.

Ok, Thank you.

Thanks for this @blocktrades, time to power all the way down.

Hello everyone, I have a problem and wanted to know if someone can help me, my hive account was correctly activated, but when I want to enter my wallet I get an error and it does not let me see the wallet's information, I wanted to know where or to whom I can go to raise my problem. ?????

the wallet on peakd.com works, you can use that instead

Thank you @inature ... been looking for a chance to change out my Steem keys for Hive keys for a minute...

thanks @inature ... for the information I will try to see if I can make a transaction .....

Anybody know when we'll be able to access our Hive wallet?

Nice. Let the dumping wars begin lol

This is exactly what I was hoping would happen. I'm swapping all of my liquid Steem for Hive now! Thank you for making it so simple.

Wow! Good news indeed!

Thank you very much!

What's the estimated time it takes to trade from steem to hive? Just testing it out now and noticed its still pending after 15 minutes or so. I'm not worried, just curious for future reference if I decide to trade a larger sum. Will the speed of trade between hive and steem always have a delay or will this speed up in the future?

Thanks and appreciate all your hard work. Stay healthy!

It's a temporary issue, should be resolved in a bit.

Beautiful one. The whole hive is about to take off

Thanks for working on the pair @blocktrades.

I just wan't to ask about ETH which I notice is unstable, at times it worked and a moment later then it fails. Any explanation for this issue?

We've experienced some kind of loading problem with our ETH wallet for the past week, off-and-on. It's high on our list of things to look at, now that the hyper critical things are mostly done.

Great work done. Thanks.

Hopefully SBD option will come back as well

This is the future we will continue working together

...we’ll be offering one for a while.

For the next 13 weeks, I hope. 😉

Fantastic to see! Thank you! Will be using this service in approximately 10 hours when my first powerdown completes. 😊

This is great! Now I can dump STEEM for HIVE quickly and easily through my favorite exchange. Good job!

The Steem to Hive is not working:

It says can not compute a price for this trade, but if I reverse it to Hive to Steem it does compute ????

Then when logging in again a few minutes later I get this both ways20200324 14_32_55BlockTrades _ Cryptocurrency Exchange.png

We were still tweaking things for a bit, it should all be good now.

Thank you for everything you have been doing. Incredible.

One thing though- I have a problem that I mention here because I tried the other way a few days ago. Meanwhile I'm stopped by login errors. I submitted a support request a few days ago. I know your hands are full but I'm stuck. I think you'll have a simple remedy..

PW changes aren't helping.

Attempted to re register which revealed existing acct and correct email addy. If you need something from me I'm available now to respond. I see the changes - ideal for what I need today.

Please help. You can find my ticket in your system and reply to my email, ideally- or here if it's basic My user name is same as you see here. Thanks!

Anyone have any idea when the hive wallet will be working?

It's in progress, some commits were made today and should be reviewed tonight. So probably can deploy in a day or two, hopefully.

Stoked to hear this!! I have been refreshing the browser there for a few days now lol.

I figured that's what was being worked on!!

Thank you

Thanks - too late for me - i wanted to get the hell out of steem asap so used ionomy - but handy for anyone still stuck in there

oh thank goodness!!

That works absolutely great. The amazing speed really wants me to have all conversions to be this fast... I really hope at some point we can have a well-working well divided DPoS coin for everyone... Maybe that can be Hive!

Thanks! I just made use of it.
I wish I could power down my steem faster :/

Since I didn't get the hive Airdrop then this is good for me to convert my steems to hive!

Hi @blocktrades. I have always used your service to buy Steem with BTC. As for Steem, I decided, on the first week that Justin Sun started pulling his nonsense, to do a full power-down of my ~ 2,600 Steem, which I have been converting directly into DEC and holding in my @steem-engine wallet. I am in the process, right now, of trying to figure out how to get the airdrop of Hive equivalent to the ~ 1,900 Steem I had when the fork went down. I am having trouble finding out how to access the Hive airdrop tokens, as my Hive wallet is not even opening. If you could be nice enough to briefly explain BOTH how to get my Hive wallet operational (which SHOULD contain ~ 1,900 Hive, AND ALSO where I might hold Hive (if I choose to sell the weekly paid-out, powered-down Steem on blocktrades). In other words, I am having a "wallet problem". Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Very glad to see this @blocktrades; offers a nice exchange option for the smaller "fish" in the pond... will probably use this as I start to power down my Steem.

Steem is crashing against Hive I think this is an excellent indicator thanks for taking the risk and doing this!

@hive @blocktrades This is great so we can pretty much send all our steem to Hive and have double the hive? if I understand this correctly?

Also any idea when the Hive wallet will be available and operational, I still get an error when I click on my wallet it just shows Error code access denied?

Thank you so much!

The best decision so far... I was waiting for when exchanging between STEEM and HIVE would be allowed... Now I don't need to wait until all my favorite exchanges allow depositing HIVE...

works fine. thank you!

Awesome!👍👍👍

This is awesome. How long should xfer take? I tried to use blocktrades to initiate manual xfer yesterday from STEEM to HIVE. It shows that it started on the STEEMIT site, but still hasn't completed. Never showed up as pending on the blocktrades site, and still hasn't completed or errored.

Late to the game. I don't see the pair listed anymore - too late?

So good to hear you have made the decision, many are requesting exactly this to make a move!

@tipu curate

Good news for all hivian... I like all new features in the new blockchain..thanks forjustin sun..

I hope the hive will progress efficiently , but we all the community members have to work hard for the benefit of community.

I love to see HIVE worth more than Steem and it's a few days old.
