Prizes only in Steem?
Why not in Hive?

cheers, hope we see you at dtube Forum in Hamburg, after the corona ....

Pretty nice contest, I wish that I could make a video.

Sorry to hear that man , I wish I can find a way to make contest easy for everyone I will think a way for the next one.

I prefer Hive since steem is already died as of the moment softfork 0.22.8888 in affect.

you can easily exchange steem to hive :D (also to @reiseamateur)

you can easily exchange steem to hive

not really since yesterday! it was easy with Blocktrades direkt but since yesterday you know..,
but now you have send Steem to Bittrex to sell BTC and buying Hive and send back to the Account, 🤔

Not really a easy way! @tibfox

cheers, by the way did you know now whats happend with dtube forum?

Naaaah I think it's easy via bittrex. blocktrades was just so easy because they are part of hive :D

DTube forum is postponed and there are no news about the next dates because we still have no idea when the situation will change unfortunately.. It will happen as adverted but the date is still not sure. We hope to do it this year in the early fall but who knows if europeans can travel then :/


I trade in bittrex, both hive and steem are traded there

How, I am really interested.

via - they offer a btc-steem and btc-hive pair for trading

Thank you, I thought it was instant like

nope they do not support steem anymore :/

That steem is really dead...

how about hive prizes ?

This is something I believe we need a tool for... myself I cannot figure out how to submit my videos to my IPFS node without painstakingly physically copying them to a thumb drive then moving to the server and pinning then emailing a copy of the hash back to the device I am working from.... since I do everything mobile iOS and my video exports are in the wrong format, best solution is youtube upload then redownload to PC and use oneloveuploader to submit post then using a sync script to pin my video and thumbnail to my IPFS node 🤦‍♂️

Why can’t I just upload to my personal node on DTube no matter where in the world I’m working from? That’s the ultimate solution! Rendering is a concern on iOS.
