"Whether it is DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, or #Play2Earn, Hive is putting together the foundation to provide it all."
This could be also considered Hive´s weakness. There is no single focus. You can´t be competitive in so many different areas. Many (very talented!) people work on their project within the Hive universe, but isolated from each other. This dilutes the energy and impact, together with the near zero marketing.
Just compare to Thorchain. They offer only ONE feature (cross-chain Defi platform), but with this single USP plus a terrific marketing campaign they are magnitudes more successful.
