Authored by @asgarth

A new release of is now available. The biggest new feature included in this release is the option to send tips to specific posts, but as always there are some other updates and improvements.

The new release is now live at


1. Tips

The biggest new feature available with this release is the option to send tips to specific posts and support the creator work not only with upvotes but also with HIVE/HBD.

Tips is just the start of what we are calling our "Creator Support Tools"


To send a tip you just have to click the new 'gift' icon and specify the details in the following popup:


Also keep in mind that to prevent abuse we designed the system to always burn 1% of the tip (sending to @null).

Kudos to @cardboard and @mys (beneficiaries for this post) for all the work they have done to provide the API we use to track tips and the support received while working on this new addition.

Expect many more improvements to tips feature sets or because of tips.

2. Wallet Improvements to handle Tips

As a consequence of the previous point the Wallet page is not updated to handle Tips transfers properly:


3. New Notifications

Thanks to the new notifications system introduced in the previous update we can now allow more interactions with the notification itself.

A sample of the new notifications available with this release:


NOTE: Don't worry if you don't see the 'New Version Available' notification. Usually the new version is used automatically when you load the website ;)

4. Easily search for content in a specific community

Thanks to some updates by @good-karma on the Esteem search API it's now possible to search for posts in a specific community.


5. Small updates to the proposals pages

The Proposals page has been updated to give better details on the proposals and the amount of remaining days until the end.

Also the same details are available in the specific page for each proposal:

6. Easily review muted accounts

You can now check and review the muted accounts on your profile page:


7. Some minor bug fixes and minor improvements

As always some minor fixes and improvements across the website ;)

- There is now an option to search for post inside a specific community (directly in the community page)
- There is a new 'Muted' tab in the follower/following page
- Some changes in how vote values are displayed
- Fixes in the downvote value estimate (downvote slider)
- Some changes to the proposal pages to give better details
- Whitelisted some website to be embedded in posts
- Fix in Search page and API

Support the @peakd / @steempeak projects

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 SteemConnect: You'll need access to confirm the transaction with your Active Key at least

Awesome Update! I love the Tips Addon to PeakD so an Author can easily get some funds after the 7-days periode. Thanks @mys and @cardboard for your hard and nice work! The Search-Function in a Community is great! All the Way... Awesome Work and Thanks for the Update!!!

Just made the German Translation of this Article, which u can see here:

Edit: Does Tipping under Comments also make Sense? Maybe at the 3 little Dots for more Options:


Something to be discussed for the next release ;)

Actually this is already possible for comments if you look at them directly. I just tested this on a comment of mine. It does not display though when you go one comment "level" up.

İ would like to tip for comments. Some people make comments worthy of a tip.

I'm genuinely excited! Haha

Tips just solved problem with voting on great, but overlooked posts/comments for people with low HP. Thank you guys!

Tipping works like a charm! I've got one question.
Are we able to tip a post after the 7 days window? If we can that solves pretty much everything!

Thank you @peakd team for your hard work! Trully appreciated

Yes, tips are just a hive/hbd transfer to the post author so there's no problem sending it under old posts :)

Thanks for the fast reply.

another good use case of tipping!


is peakd tips system working with you?

Yes @cardboard helped us create/implement/test it and helps run the API that we use to make it work.

Good job mate. Awesome job actually. Damn I want to tip you and have nothing liquid lol

Wow, I was just daydreaming about possibility of a tip function just a few days ago. Perfect for a post that’s already past payout.
So happy that this feature here already! Praise to the PeakD Team 👏

In one word: AWESOME!!!

Good updates, tipping is only the tip of the iceberg I guess.

Has potential to develop in a patreonD :)



Great work @peakd! Really love using the platform here. May I put a suggestion?

  • Address book for our wallet.

I know it's a simple suggestions, but I would imagine there has been countless times people transferred to an account name with a typo.

Absolutely something to add ...I'll do my best to include this in the next release.

love the tips feature! I have an idea how to expand this: could it be possible to add a delegation option and/or an autovote option? I am often low on Hive tokens and would rather show my support in a delegation and/or autovote.

keep it up!

yep ... stay tuned

Nice TIP are going be pretty awesome!

Loving every single improvement so far!

Love it. Thanks.

this is incredible and I also get two tips thanks to the the natural medicine concert, this would be a nice tool for overcoming concerts, always great to see you guys growing!

Thank you @peakd team for these awesome updates especially tipping system.

It's mesmerizing to see these huge changes! There is only one way which is all the way up! Keep up the awesome work champs!

Awesome, looking forward to seeing the tip feature expand in the future.

Awesome updates. Keep up the great work!

Great work!

Great news as usual; tipping is a great idea!

Is tipping for comments going to be implemented under the ... thing? I see you can tip the comment if you open up the comment on a new tab, but thats an extra step that doesn't need to be there.

I think this is something we'll discuss for the next release ;)

This is really fabulous! I noticed there is a way to see who gave the tip on a post, but what about a comment? Great work team!

Technically still possible but you'd have to go to the page o
For the comment. Click on the link next to date

wow great awesome

Good updates!

Always impressed with the content improvements being made to, the best interface on Hive for a reason! 👊

This is just great! Thank you for this.

Gongrats for the continuous hard work guys. Really.

Great improvements. Out of curiosity, is there a way to search for specific tags, rather than communities? If so could someone tell me how? If not, any future plans for it?

There are still curators who are interested in specific tags and it would be awesome if it was a click away.

Those are some awesome updates!

I have a feeling the "tips" feature is going to be an excellent tool for encouraging (and retaining) promising new contributors.

But the best thing about it? It suddenly opened up a whole new world by increasing the value of "evergreen" which has only had 7 days of value in the past... and that will also be HUGE for the future of building the Hive community!

I love the tip feature, GREAT update!!

Love it! Great job guys!

Great to see more intrinsic value added to functionality.

yahh for tips! Its rad seeing all these new features. Keep up the good work!

you guys are amazing! keep it up!!

Some excellent improvements, congrats.

Hive, with peakd, is becoming a real social media attention platform. Tipping is on the features that can improve interaction a lot.

Good search engine is also a must.

What about displaying of rewards from tribe tokens?

Thanks again and keep up the great work.

I think the tipping feature is awesome, you guys are doing a great job. Thanks for all your hard work!

Why is there a purple tips logo with some names and not with others?

Automatic if they tip the author of the post

Good job.
I have a question not related to the post though.
I send some hive to promote my post. I can see the withdrawal from my wallet but not the promotion badge on the post.
My mistake?

This is a cool feature...tnx

While we're presently re-doing promotions and improving them and haven't officially launched them on Hive the old system can still be used.
You promoted the post on 3 different topic pages ... they're the first three words in the wallet memo

@peakd What websites were whitelisted for embedding?

YouTube, Vimeo, 3Speak, DTube, Twitch, SoundCloud, spotify,,

Awesome! Thanks for the info and all the hard work!

I have reblogged this post. Thank you 😉

i'm still not seeing how to adjust delegations... or do i have to log in thru hive keychain for that ? ty

ok, i did, i got it

Something is going on with the GIF displaying? They are not showing up, and some images are also now showing up at all, only a broken icon. Is some technical issue happening now?
example: can you see this GIF?

There have been some issues with the image server (we use an external service so we cannot always know exactly what's the matter). Should be solved now.

yeah, it's fixed now! Whew! i was a bit worried for a thanks for answering.

Great addition with the tipping feature and thanks for the recent one on my post too!

If you can support mixcloud embeds, I'd be made! Would also be good for all the various radio shows and podcasters on Hive as well. Thanks for making Spotify embeds possible too - it's really made a difference on my Hive interaction 😊

I love what you do!

I just saw that Bitrex has a USD/Hive trading pair. I wonder if it would be possible to make an easy connection to buy and sell from this app? That would be huge!

Hello @peakd team
I was wondering if there are any plans to make localization of the UI?
I'm sure many spanish speaking users would really appreciate to have Peakd in their native language.

I could offer myself to translate some parts :D
In exchange of some hive tokens of course :P

we are planning on it. But are working on a few other projects/features first
