Eclipse HF and Other Improvements

in About PeakD3 months ago

A new release of is now available. Keep reading to discover the new features and check the full list of improvements ;)

The new release is now live at


1. Support the changes introduced with HF24 - Eclipse

Almost all the updates included in this release are focused on providing better support for the changes introduces in the latest HF (Eclipse). You can read more about the hardfork here.

This HF introduced relevant changes to the way the software powering the Hive Blockchain works and how apps interact with API/RPC nodes. This means that most of the Wallets, dApps and Hive frontends are still doing improvements and also the infrastructure is being worked on to make it better, faster and more reliable.

The changes to support the new HF are too many to be listed in a single post, but the important thing is that all the features provided by PeakD and PeakLock should now be compatible with the new version 🙃

If you experience issues while casting transactions or some pages take some time to load it's probably better to try a different API node (you can do this in you Settings page). Please remind to change the node also in Keychain if you are using it as yours login method.

Hopefully this will get better in the coming few days ...and as always please report any issues as a reply to this post or in our Discord server.

2.Support for new API nodes

It's now possible to select (by @arcange) as API node for PeakD. You can read more about the new node here.

3. Some minor improvements and bug fixes

As always some minor improvements, updates and fixes across the website. You can check the full release notes here:

Support the @peakd project

Now is probably a nice time to remind you of the ways you can support the development of @peakd.


We have a proposal on the Decentralized Hive Fund. You can review the proposal here.
If you agree to the proposal and you think the points mentioned add value to the Hive Blockchain consider supporting it using the above links or directly with this link.

We also run a witness server to help produce the blocks for the Hive Blockchain. You can vote for our witness so we are in a position to process more of them.

Vote on the witness page:

  • Using Keychain: You just have to click and approve the transaction
  • Using HiveSigner: You'll need access to confirm the transaction with your Active Key at least

Thanks so much for the addendum. Now I know why I'm still getting the errors when posting/commenting and my posts not appearing on my blog list immediately. Appreciate what you are doing to make Peakd a premium front end.

Ah awesome, thanks for keeping up with it all! Very good work you guys do as always!

Great info and easy to understand the situation. :-)

This post has been just added as new item to timeline of PeakD on Hive Projects.

If you want to be notified about new updates from this project, register on Hive Projects and add PeakD to your favorite projects.

Thx for the update, notifications seem extremely slow now, taking 5 seconds or more to show updated notifications. Also loading of profile pages, comments seem slower now. Wonder if there is a testnet for the core blockchain + Hivemind/API Servers + beta peakd for the next hardfork, so we can test the new version prior to the release.

Update: got "error retrieving comments" after posting this comment

Our community truly appreciates PeakD.

Keep up the good team

Great job @peakd

I enjoy using the peakd frontend. I hope all bugs are being fixed soonest

Thanks for your improving upon the Hive user experience... Much appreciated by some of us here😎

'tis a hard slog trying to use Hive at the minute. Votes seem to go through eventually, and I need to refresh the page to see if Comments have posted. But it looks like we are getting there (credit to the witnesses and developers who are working hard to get various niggles sorted).

I am still new here (I didn't know anything about the whole nonsense regarding Steem) so this is my first experience of a hardfork. According to the more 'experienced' members, this HF24 has gone through reasonably easy compared to previous Forks, so I dread to think what those earlier ones were like.

The only thing that is bothersome at the moment is the difficulty in trying to get Posts uploaded (published). After I have written an article it refuses to post. I have tried changing different nodes, and none of that makes a difference - I still get the same error message

"There was an Error broadcasting this transaction: 30549"


It appears everytime I try to publish a post. Everytime I change nodes I get the same message. This error appears via @keychain but I get the same message appear in a small red box in the bottom corner from @peakd

I have managed to work around this issue by choosing to 'schedule' a post instead of 'publish'. Even by scheduling a post a mere 20 minutes into the future makes it post properly with no error.

Other than that everything else seems to be working as it should

(just a bit slow and clunky at times, which is understandable given the huge changes etc)

Are you using Brave? If yes, your Keychain might be outdated, and you need to go to Manage extensions turn on Developer Mode and click on Update. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. I'm using chrome... I checked the chromes extension manager thing, and it said I had the most up to date version of Keychain. I removed it and then reinstalled it just in case, but that hasn't solved the issue.

It does seem odd that the 'publish' button throws up the error, and yet if I click 'schedule' to post in 20 minutes time, the post appears in 20 minutes without a problem

Who knows.... thank you trying anyway

Thank you for this. Notwithstanding the glitches, this seems to have eclipsed (Ha!) other HFs. Two reasons: regular updates (that, by and large, I understand) and comparatively little interruption. Job well done!(even though there is still work...😉)

Thank you!

The peakd work is appreciated as always and I wil ofcourse share it with all the people in discord the terminal and ladies of hive have a good weekend

thanks so much, it|s working much better now

Claim rewards still not working.
