Make Money Creating Accounts

Visit website: HIVE Creator


If there are any problems, I just transfered domain and server and there might be some issues.

What is HIVE Creator? It's an open source app that allows anyone to host account creation service (like

How does it work?

Anyone can set up the web app, users can send HIVE/HBD to owner's account and they will get account creation codes/tokens (sent back in encrypted memo). Users can than use this codes to create new accounts.

If users don't use memo account_creation, payment will not be detected. If amount is less than price or currency is not correct (eg. HIVE instead of HBD), transfer will be refunded. You can always see current price per account at API.


  • Account creation
  • Claiming accounts (optional)
  • Receiving payments & handling all cupon codes (optional)
  • Memo decryption

For-profit system is not required, you can disable payments and create/distribute codes manually.

Visit website: HIVE Creator

Because some HIVE frontends don't support memo decryption, you can use tool on the website to decrypt memo (Keychain & private memo key supported) and get your account creation tokens!

You can also use tool on the site to buy account creation tokens (HiveSigner & Keychain supported)!

All transfers are divided by price and than rounded down. If you send 10.3 HIVE and price is 0.500 HIVE, you will get 20 codes and remaining will NOT be refunded (in v1.0, it might change in future).

How to set up the app

  • NodeJS & NPM
  • MySQL database

(Detailed instructions: ~~~ embed:b63bab4c9e7cfc09e5b613fbe4715937) gist metadata:ZmJzbG8vYjYzYmFiNGM5ZTdjZmMwOWU1YjYxM2ZiZTQ3MTU5Mzcp ~~~

Service was tested on Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04. This instructions are for Ubuntu 16.04.

1 - Clone Github repository:
git clone
cd creator
npm install

2 - Create MySQL database:
mysql -p
create database creator;
use creator;
create table tokens(id TEXT, status INTEGER);

id is used to store account creation token, status is NULL before token is used and 1 after it is used.

3 - Rename and edit config.json
Rename config.demo.json to config.json

  "account": "youraccount", 
  "key": "thisisyouractivekey",
  "accept_payment": "true", //set to false if you don't want to accept payments
  "price": "0.5 HIVE",
  "claim": "false",  //set to true if you want to claim account every 12 hours
  "tip": "0.1", //send 10% tip to @fbslo, you can set it to 0 to disable
  "rpc": "", 
  "database_ip": "localhost",
  "database_user": "root", //your database user
  "database_password": "database_password", //your database password
  "database_port": "3306",
  "database": "creator",
  "env": "dev" //set to production for production mode (https), any other mode starts server on port 5000

Note: If you enable account claiming, it will claim accounts every 12 hours and it will run until you run out of RCs (or any other error). Than it will pause for 12h and try again. Use with caution!

4 - Run the service:
node app.js
Or use pm2: pm2 start app.js

YOU SHOULDN'T RUN THIS APP AS ROOT! Use nginx as reverse proxy, run app in dev mode and forward all requests to port 5000. See THIS tutorial, you will also get automatic SSL keys generated

You should use SSL! Private keys are sent from front-end to server and than back to client!

In production mode, SSL is required!
Create key.pem and cert.pem and store them to /ssl directory. You can get free SSL certificates on (Not recommended, see nginx setup above)

API is available at

var config = JSON.parse(fs.readFileSync('./config.json'))
easier with:
config = require('./config.json')

Thanks :)

I learned of this myself recently as well, and it is so much better.
