Hive is alive, and this is Hive Today.

Hive Today is a weekly newsletter for the decentralized Hive network. Hive is a blockchain-based social app platform. This newsletter provides a summary of Hive apps and games development news. Thank you for reading and sharing.

This week, we're dedicating "above the fold" to the wonderful Hive promotional video created by @lordbutterly. This video has been making rounds on social media. Please continue sharing it!


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.

@penguinpablo Reports - 10 Million Hive Withdrawn From Exchanges

@penguinpablo, keeper of the Hive stats, shared some exciting metrics this week. Keeping an eye on known exchange wallets, an exodus of Hive coins is observed.

New Hive account creation also continues an upward trend. This is largely thanks to Splinterlands, but not exclusively. Hivers also reported an increase in the volume of new "IntroduceYourself" posts.

LeoFinance Launches CUB IDO Launchpad

This week the LeoFinance team launched the CubDefi decentralized IDO Launchpad. IDO means "Initial DEX Offering". New tokens can leverage CubDefi to access the active community and gain some initial liquidity while staying decentralized. The first IDO to launch is $CAKEPOP.

Value4Value Proposal Seeks Funding

A new DHF proposal for V4V was introduced 9 days ago by @brianoflondon. This proposal seeks funding to create a bridge between Hive and the Bitcoin Lightning Network. Podcasting 2.0 apps use the Lightning network for streaming sats, which basically means direct tips from listener to podcaster. The proposed V4V bridge would allow podcast content creators to receive those tips as Hive coins, including podcasts associated with all 3Speak channels. Yes! Podcasting supports video, too.


This Week in Hive-Powered Games

Hive is home to a growing number of blockchain games. Here's a quick summary of updates for Hive games.

Rising Star Enters Partnership with PIZZA Team

Rising Star, the rock band simulator game, entered a partnership with PIZZA Team this week. Card packs can be purchased using $PIZZA tokens. And a $PIZZA:$STARBITS DIESEL Pool was set up on Tribaldex. Liquidity providers who contribute to the pool can earn $STARBITS and $PIZZA tokens as rewards.

Splinterlands Continues Explosive Growth and Deploys Brawls 2.0

Splinterlands continue to grow like crazy. On August 23rd, 2021, 15,000+ new players signed up for Splinterlands, and the total number of daily active players exceeded 100,000, according to DappRadar. As of now, 5 days later, the 24-hour DAU count on DappRadar shows 120,000. Incredible!

The Splinterlands team also released an exciting update to the game's guild brawl system. Players who participate in brawls will earn Merits, a new token that can be spent in the Guild Store on gladiator card packs. Gladiators are a unique type of card that can only be used in brawls and can only be obtained from brawling. In addition, the cards are "soulbound," meaning they can't be sold or transferred.

STEMGeeks Launches APE Mining Club Game

APE Mining Club is a new Hive-powered game created by the STEMGeeks tribe. In this game, players use $APE tokens to buy crypto-mining equipment and $STEM tokens to boost equipment effectiveness. Through the game, players earn $APE, which can then be reinvested or traded on secondary markets like Hive-Engine.

Maybe we’ll see more successful apps following in their footsteps!

That would be nice.

I hope some of the new Splinterlands players get into other aspects of Hive. That's a lot of growth potential for other dapps too. They could be earning in lots of ways.


I think some of them will. The ability to create content on and earn SPT and also earn SPS is attractive.

@hivetoday! I sent you a slice of $PIZZA on behalf of @steevc.

Did you know you can earn $PIZZA through Hive-Engine Diesel Pools? (7/10)






@hivetoday, you've been given LUV from @steevc.

Great seeing all this positive news around hive. Really shows the platform is doing well. The Splinterlands game seems to have greatly improved the number of sign ups greatly. Believe we will be seeing more upwards movement has more development comes into the platform. Thanks for sharing this news

Thank you for reading! Hive on!

My pleasure. Great to know the happenings around here

Yes. Thanks to Splinterlands SPS airdrop and staking … thousands of people are joining Hive. I think Splinterlands deserves most of the credit here. Many of us are maki g a fortune staking SPS.

There's no question Splinterlands is killing it right now. The user counts have been nothing short of spectacular. That said, HAF, 3SPK, Podping, and ProjectBlank are still coming and all of them have a chance to blast it out of the park as well. Things are going to get crazy around here over the next few months. This nice update could be a mile long by the end of the year.... :-)
