This Week in Hive-Powered dApps, Tribes, & Tokens

Hive powers a growing number of decentralized apps (dApps). Since they all run on the same chain, one Hive account can access every app. Here's a quick summary of the Hive app landscape.

Actifit Burns Millions of Tokens and DeFi Plans

This week Actifit burned 2.54 million AFIT tokens to reduce the supply. Actifit also plans to release a feature in April that integrates with Binance Smart Chain (BSC) for some kind of DeFi functionality.

DBuzz fends off Spam Attack, adds Profile Editing and Long-form Frontend (Alpha)

The DBuzz team fended off a spam attack this week. A bot farm using hundreds of accounts started posting random news snippets. Some users caught on to this and began downvoting the posts to counter auto-upvotes. The spammer was ticked-off and switched to more aggressive posts, calling out the down-voters. DBuzz shortly thereafter rolled out a change for mute-lists to filter out the spam. Users on DBuzz have the ability to 'follow' other mute lists.

DBuzz also released some feature updates. Users can edit profile metadata inside DBuzz now. And an alpha version of DBuzz long-form content launched. DBuzz notifications can be filtered by type, and DBuzz posts gained a sharing button to cross-post to Facebook.

Ecency Mobile gets User Gallery and Drafts Auto-save

The Ecency mobile app received some updates this week. Inside the app, you can now browse your uploaded images. Post draft auto-save has been approved. This is a super-important feature because it's so frustrating when your hard work disappears and you have to re-write a post.

The Ecency web app also received some updates this week. Ecency now support cross-posting to different communities. Reblog actions can be undone now, to remove a reblog from your blog feed. And they've added a really interesting feature called history.

If you're on, simply add ?history to the URL while viewing a post. Ecency will show you previous revisions view of posts which have been edited.
