Hive Explained: Resource Credits

in Hive Business Buzz4 years ago (edited)


What are Resource Credits?

This term is defined by it’s creators the developers.

Their definition: Resource Credits are non-transferable credits given to each account based on how much HivePower it has, which get “spent” whenever a user transacts with the Hive blockchain.

So what function doe this new entity called Resource Credits perform on the Hive Platform?
They are a form of currency you spend to enact or perform transactions on the platform.

What are Transactions?

They are votes, comments, transfers and power ups.

You pay or expend Resource Credits when you perform transactions or interact with the Steemit platform.

Each transaction has a specific cost in Resource Credits, and if you have enough resource credits to cover the cost, you can perform the transaction.

If you don’t have enough resource credits you get an error message telling you that you are unable to perform the transaction or interaction.

You should also be aware that the cost of transactions varies depending on factors that effect blockchain perform and the available supply of resource credits.

Let’s do some FAQs, I love Frequent;y Asked Questions.


How do I get resource credits?
Answer: You are given a certain amount of resource credits in direct proportion to how much Hive Power you have. You need at least 15 Hive Power to be awarded any resource credits.
