I decided that it would be fun to create accounts. My HP was at 2600; so I borrowed another $100 last week and bought enough HIVE to bring my account to 3025 ( 5.87MM Resource Credits).
A funny thing happened yesterday: Apparently a pod of whales had a feeding frenzy and they drove the cost of claiming accounts to 13 MM; So I had to wait a day to start claiming accounts.
Apparently, I can claim an account every five days. I would like to have a half dozen accounts claims on hand. That way I could hold a class on using HIVE or give free accounts as part of the presentation.
Personally, I think the free account is kind of silly. It only costs 3 hive to create and account. The price is under a dollar. But people seem to like free things. So, I will enjoy having some free accounts to give out ... even if the monetary value is low.
Speaking of meetings. I would love to host or attend a meeting about free market health care reform. If anyone was interested in such a meeting, I will have some "free" HIVE accounts to hand out.
I created the account using this HiveSigner line:
This is the transaction:
I guess the next challenge is figuring out how to actually create accounts. I suspect I can do it with Hive Invite
