The HardFork that created the Hive blockchain happened on March 20, 2020. More than a month have past since then and it seems that the two blockchains are going on their separate ways.
So, who are the top paid authors on each of them? Who is getting most rewarded? It is interesting to take a look at this in this in the current situation. Although due to the 13 weeks power down it will take some more time for things to settle, but still let’s have a look at this point how things stand.
Here is the chart for the top paid authors on Steem for April 2020.

As already mentioned, this is the first month after the HardFork and some of the large stake holders are in the process of exiting Steem during the 13 weeks power down. Most likely after month or a two some of the top authors in the chart above will no longer be there.
Now let’s see who the most rewarded authors on Hive for April 2020 are. Here is the chart.
When we put the data from both blockchains in a table it looks like this.
Note on the disclaimer that these are approximate and not totally accurate numbers. Conversion on VESTS and tokens baked dollars have been made in HIVE/STEEM for simplicity.
What can be noticed from the above is that the top rewarded authors on Steem are getting played more than the top ones on Hive. The top 20 authors on Steem have a total of around 98k STEEM, vs the 65k HIVE for the top 20 authors on Hive.
All the best
