DBuzz is...

A censorship-resistant short-form microblogging platform that empowers you to share your thoughts in 280 characters or fewer.

Censorship-resistant and built for the community with love.



Thank you for all the work you have done for HIVE and freedom of speech. I wish you the best for you to be able to continue developing with even better funding in 2024 and 2025. These are some of the best times to build and onboard!

@vimukthi sent you LUV 🙂 (1/1)

It's one of my favorite microblogging platforms on the Hive network.

Many more can be spun up, now that we Open Sourced everything :

Great job as usual! I'm thrilled that we have two instant social media projects so strong. There are blockchains with x10 Market cap without a single one!

Interesting. I had no idea dbuzz had SO much going on. I'm checking it out. 😁

Good information about dbuzz

Thank you for your appreciation, same here, the devs have done a great job.

Great development on dbuzz

The DBuzz team has done great improvement and development work for their DApp and the entire Hive ecosystem.

Development is hard work and quite difficult to achieve... God continue to bless every step you take for the progress of this beautiful family!

I definitely agree, the devs have done some wonderful things for users to enjoy and be proud of, as part of the growing family of loyal and censorship-resistant movement.

Great work guys, cheers. 🌐

It's an honor to be a part of the DBuzz team and see how these devs worked so hard.

I love dbuzz platform

Same here, thank you for the appreciation.

This is so wonderful, it's a good news for this Christmas. I sincerely appreciate you for the upgrade, we can now enjoy @dbuzz to its fullest.

Indeed a wonderful Christmas for all of us, and we are more than proud that DBuzz started with just three people in a coffee shop in Davao City and now going worldwide. Good Job!

That's cool 😎😎😎😎...

Thank you, @dbuzz, for the impressive update on the platform. Looking forward to having more users to interact with.


Has the code been open-sourced yet? If not, when? As I recall this one of the key points of the related DHF proposal...

We are open sourcing it this moment @blocktrades, not just D.Buzz but everything we built for HIVE.

Our Lead Dev and @nathansenn are ensuring everything is in order, and it's being open sourced through an unrestricted license (aka. unlicense).

In office now and will open source everything before sleeping.

Can you update this app to not post everything as a new blog post please

https://blog.d.buzz will add custom filtering for switching between short-form, long-form and both short-form and long-form view.

https://auto.vote will add custom filtering to prevent voting on specific hashtags thus allowing autovoters to avoid voting on posts in specific communities (ie. D.Buzz).

Real solutions.
