Recipe: Claim Hive account tokens automatically

in #developmentlast year (edited)

infestor is a command-line application to claim and create discounted STEEM accounts. If your stake is around 2.5k/3k HP level, you can claim discounted accounts (this resource credit requirement may change) in a periodical base.

I set this automation a couple of times for different accounts. Writing this quick recipe to remember in the future. :)


  • A server (Preferably Linux)


$ git clone [email protected]:emre/infestor.git
$ cd infestor
$ docker build -t infestor .

Now, infestor is installed in docker level and you can run any command with the docker run -t infestor <sub_command> syntax.


To claim an account token:

$ docker run  -e INFESTOR_ACTIVE_KEY=<active_key> \
              -t infestor claim_account --creator emrebeyler --minimum-rc 80

> emrebeyler has 140 pending claimed accounts. >  Claiming an account currently requires 4662831MM mana.
> emrebeyler has 91282493MM mana available and can claim 19 more accounts.
> Success! emrebeyler now has 141 pending claimed accounts.

creator is the creator account, --minimum-rc is the minimum RC level in percent to complete the operation.

Schedule a job to run the infestor

  • $ crontab -e
  • Add a new line

*/5 * * * * /bin/bash INFESTOR_ACTIVE_KEY=<active_key> /home/innerhive/environments/infestor-env/bin/infestor claim_account --creator innerhive --minimum-rc 90

Save and exit.

Now, every five minutes, your RC will be checked automatically. If it's greater than 90%, it will claim an account token.

discounted STEEM accounts


That was the terminology back in the day. :)

I have picked your post for my daily hive voting initiative, Keep it up and Hive On!!

Thanks mate.

That's a great command line tool to have to automatically claim the tokens, now how to use these tokens if you are not creating additional accounts, is there a way to donate

I create gift codes at and share them with people :)
