The Hive Gamification Proposal for 2022

in HiveDevs2 years ago (edited)

Our current proposal is slowly coming to an end and we invite you to renew your support to our project for the next year.

What is Hivebuzz?

HiveBuzz is a project that is designed to bring gamification to the Hive blockchain by:

  • tracking users' activity and achievements
  • notifying them of their progress
  • organizing contests and challenges
  • interacting personally with users

Users are awarded with virtual badges that reward them when they are active on the Hive blockchain or when they participate in a contest or challenge.

Users can check their achievements on the HiveBuzz Website and look up their ranking to compare themselves to others on the Ranking page.

The HiveBuzz project has been initiated 5 years ago by @arcange, a now renowned actor of the Hive ecosystem. HiveBuzz is one of the oldest projects on the platform that is still alive, and from the very beginning, it has been much appreciated and receives very positive feedback and support from the whole Hive community every day.

Work done

The year 2021 was rich in novelties despite some difficulties encountered with this damn covid.

We created the brand new Hive Tour to familiarize new users in a fun and interactive fashion with the way our blockchain and its ecosystem operate.

We then made several additions to help them discover:

We have created several new badges for calendar events like

And last but not least the Hive Birthday badge for users being on the Hive blockchain for 5 years.

We made some of these badges available on our shop where you can customize and put them on your favorite items.

We supported and participated in the first edition of Spanish Community Meetup, an awesome success with more than 140 participants and renowned speakers.

As each year, we have been actively adding fun things to HiveFest⁶ with the attendee badge, the meetings contest and by being present at the event thanks to the virtual reality.


These three acronyms have also gained their fame.

We animate the Power Up Day every 1st day of the month. We see each time appear many publications about it, even outside our ecosystem, on twitter in particular.

The Power Up Helper, introduced last year confirms each month how supportive the Hive community is for newcomers. In April, we started supporting users who regularly attend Power Up Day with Hive Power delegations.

The Power Up Month is an additional challenge we introduced a few months ago to raise the bar a bit! A challenge which, despite its very simple rules, turned out to be much more difficult to succeed than expected since, as of writing, only 50 Hive users managed to get a PUM badge.

The year is not over yet! We still have a few badges in our bag to end the year on a high note!

Existing proposal renewal

The purpose of this proposal is to renew the current proposal which expires in a few days for the year 2022.

The HiveBuzz project has proven over time to be an excellent motivator and user retention tool. It also helps to strengthen the feeling of belonging to a community. All this with a fun and positive approach.

We don't want to stop there and want to be able to continue to infuse these positive values on Hive.

We have many new ideas for next year like:

  • revamp our board design (it's slowly getting a little crowded with all those badges)
  • improve ranking design to provide more meaningful performance indicators.
  • new challenges from our boxes.

We also plan to change a few things of Power Up Day, Power Up Helper and Power Up Month to make it more fun and rewarding.

Finally, next year will be the 2022 FIFA World Cup! Do you remember how we organized it 4 years ago (a one month longh challenge with multiple updates per day to manage, crazy us) and how a blast it was for those who participated!

Request for Funding

With the recent incoming flow of new users on Hive thanks to Splinterlands and other Hive projects' success, we have seen our workload increase drastically, both in terms of infrastructure costs and human resources.

The number of active users has exploded compared to the beginning of the year and we now manually process more than 2,500 replies every month in a personalized way (it doubled compared to January 2020).

Our servers are also much more called upon to provide information since we opened our API and we recently had to upgrade our infrastructure for more storage and better performances.

Considering the elements mentioned above, we are asking for 190 HBD per day.

1. Infrastructure ($750/month)

  • servers (web, processes, database and storage)
  • security and monitoring
  • maintenance and backups services

2. Graphic Design and Web Development (2 persons - $2500/month)

  • Creation of new challenges and contests with prizes to win
  • Design and implementation of new badges
  • New features like footer creator, badge creator, contest creator, …

3. Communication and Community management (2 persons - $2500/month)

  • Daily interaction with users
  • Communication around new badges, challenges, contests and features
  • Translation management (we do our best to support all languages on Hive)
  • Events organization
  • Guiding starters

We are committed to keeping you informed about our activities, and as we did during the previous funding, we will do a regular report of the work carried out and project status.

@hivebuzz Thank you very much for your follow up on each account, the truth is that receiving this follow up on the account makes me feel that I am having some progress, and it is quite motivating, you have my support.

Thank you for your support and feedback @mjvdc, really appreciated!

I like the way you have gamified things here and all the challenges and receiving the badges are fun. I hope it never goes away and I really liked when you introduced the Hive Tour cause it's useful for not only noobs on hive but it helps those like myself who has been around a little while but still didn't know how to do some things on hive and today I'm am still learning new things.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you @successchar

I feel this service is important, but I'd like to see a financial breakdown showing how exactly the funding is being used before I vote for this. You could simply put out 1 blog per day to earn more than this...

Done, thanks for your good work, always improving.

Thank you for your support @thaliaf, much appreciated!

Yes🙂 i support by voting👍 for the @hivebuzz proposal for 2022. You and your team managed to do a super good job.....the gamification part is quite challenging and the badges are quite attractive. I'm so glad you're still planning to continue. Happy New Year✨🎆🎇 To Everyone🌍 !LUV & !BEER

Thank you for your feedback @isabelpena. Looking forward to getting your support on our proposal ;)

Thanks for all the work and the badges of course! Just like I support your witness with my modest vote, I supported the new proposal. I wasn't around here for the last World Cup, now I'm curious to see what happens for the next.

Thank you for your support @manuvert, means a lot to us!

Supported. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for your support @apshamilton

Keep up the good work @hivebuzz I really appreciate every part of it. It really awesome making the year 2021 a great one in the blockchain.

As I am quite new to Hive, but your badgers and the often post on my blog are very encouraging and meaningful to keep me going! Love what you have been doing and will continue to fight for more and more badgers along the way.

Keep up the good work. I'm encouraged to know that my work is being noticed.

Thank you for the support @hivebuzz . I always admire about this project. It makes me inspired to do better...

Hopefully in the future @hive increasingly innovate and enrich its characteristics by continuing to develop various programs and support communities that contribute to the advancement of hives.


@hivebuzz! You Are Alive so I just staked 0.1 $ALIVE to your account on behalf of @invest-time. (4/10)

The tip has been paid for by the We Are Alive Tribe through the earnings on, feel free to swing by our daily chat any time you want.

Lo están haciendo muy bien. Garcias por lo que nos han regalado y nosotros nos hemos ganado. @hivebuz

Muchas gracias @geraldhm

I hav efollowed you already .. looking forward to be part of your friendship :)

I love receive badges you are amazing team, thank you for always support me!

This is going to be great !

Soy nueva en la comunidad. Gracias por el apoyo @hivebuzz me siento muy alegre de pertenecer

De nada @brindyschi

Por cierto, su apoyo a nuestra propuesta de financiamiento de este año ha sido muy apreciado, ¡pero terminará en unos días!
¿Le importaría renovar su voto para 2022 con peakd, ecency, /
o con HiveSigner para que podamos continuar con nuestro trabajo?
¡Muchas Gracias!

Happy to support this project!

I love this gamification and like others, I find it helpful due to its motivational effect on me. I am, also, quite new to HIVE, so I still don't really know what I'm doing. I'm happy to vote (I may have already done so by clicking over on the right side of this screenshot screen??) but maybe someone who knows much more than me can tell me if I've done it (already/correctly) and if not, how to vote.

And so, as someone who doesn't have heaps of cash in HIVE (but is happy to give something as a real reflection of my support) how can I/do I give you financial support for this gamification to continue?

I know I've probably asked questions that should be asked on Discord. However, I'm still so new with Hive that even getting my head around the many things I'm already learning here (on top of running my own business and the rest of my life) it's more than enough; Discord will have to wait. So, can you please indulge me?

What should I (& anyone else who is really new to Hive who wants to support but doesn't know how) actually do to help you with this proposal?

Thanks @hivebuzz and fellow Hivians who know much more than little, willing me!!


Thank you hive
I support hivebuzz work.

finding out how to vote

Is there any interest in the development of a "Hive blockchain" NFT?
This nft is user generated and also provides an income. Ideally the income would go to support development of bigger more detailed games.

There needs to be a quick and simple way to go directly from Hive BD savings to powering up hive. Right now, via the Ecency app, it takes 3 days to go HBD savings to fluid, then 3.5 days to convert to Hive. Only to then power up. Yes, I could use the market. But…why isn’t there a one-button solution from HBD savings to HP?

why isn’t there a one-button solution from HBD savings to HP?

This is something you can suggest to front-end developers.

Hi team friends @hivebuzz and friend @arcange like many in the hive I am very grateful for the work you do throughout the year and so I want to continue to support and vote for the proposal for 2022 but I do not understand what happens that the HIVESIGNER gets complicated for transactions. Now a humble proposal from me is that you guys make a tutorial type post to understand the step by step to not keep getting the message for an error: Your transaction did not transmit correctly. I think I am the voice of many who wish to support the proposal and make other transactions and don't know what exact key to use, sometimes it doesn't accept any. Well, guys I have dared to launch my proposal for you to help me and all the others who have yet to support yours. You are our unfailing friends throughout the journey through this ecosystem and we want to support you as you do with us. Infinite blessings.



Managed to click the "support" button! All the best!

Thank you for your support @pvmihalache, much appreciated!

Please tag me in the future proposals so I can support the evolution. Still struggling to find my way in this big ... HIVE

Thank you, @hivebuzz, for all the hard work, best wishes for 2022!untitled.gif

@hivebuzz i don't understand. Does this mean we are to give 190 HBD or to vote so you get it? I don't quite understand. I'm just confused as I've never done this before. You're doing a fabulous job by the way and I've given my vote. 😊

The funding is done by the DHF, a decentralized fund operated by the blockchain.
Each user can vote to decide which proposals will receive funds front the DHF.

Thank you for your support @deraaa, much appreciated!
