Hi guys, Sid here. I hope and wish you are doing great. Welcome to this week’s newsletter with zero drama (unlike last week). In fact, this week Hive had its first all-time-high activity (check #2 for details).
We are also noticing too many new dapps on the chain. It is certainly a good news for a 4-month old blockchain. If anything, this is a rock-solid indication of growth. With this thought, let us quickly explore all the 13 bite-sized updates.

#1: Good news: A brand new Hive whitepaper is here. In its first draft, the whitepaper discusses assets, block production, development, and current growth. This is written completely from scratch. [Details]
#2: Another good news: A new victory for Hive as it has the most number of transactions in the blockchain industry, as per Cryptomode. That’s right. The highlight of the article:
“With 956,130 daily transactions, Hive is certainly the most active ecosystem out there.”
#3: Question: Where are Hivers from? Here are the top 5 countries based on the location extracted from the profile:
United States (18.39%)

#4: In order to expand its reach, Splinterlands has partnered with GAME Credits. One can now earn GAME tokens by staking on Splinterlands.
#5: Ever wanted to collect rare art? 🎨
Check out NFT Showroom. It is the first digital art marketplace on the Hive blockchain selling tokenised art.
#6: Did you know: Esteem is rebranded to Ecency. Both the mobile and desktop app will be released this week with a refreshing look.
On the other hand, Dapplr mobile app is out now. Though in alpha, the initial reviews are positive.
#7: Two more Hive updates:
Don’t forget to check out this leaf artist on Hive. Who knew art-on-leaf is a profession?
Do you like manly stuff? Then check out this new community called The Man Cave.
#10: Among the 3 dapps, Dapp.com selected AltYes. [Details]
If you didn’t know, AltYes is a free Hive dapp designed to unify the Internet. Meaning it allows you to publish content right from your browser through its extension.
#12: A tiny achievement: Flote has added Reddit, TikTok, and Hive buttons. Though fairly new, Flote’s mission is to create a people’s platform which is inline with Hive’s mission. [Twitter]
If that’s heavy, Nathan’s Web3 revolution tweet is light and sums up the benefits of Hive.
