Hive is alive, and this is Hive Today.

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.
Hive Keychain Mobile App Adds Built-in Browser
This week, the Hive Keychain mobile app released a new version which adds a built-in browser. This browser is useful for interacting with Hive dApps from iOS and Android devices. Keys stored in Hive Keychain can be used to sign in and sign transactions while browsing dapps in the built-in browser. This is very useful for mobile-only Hivers.
PeakD Adds Curated Content Collections and Overhauled Hive-Engine Wallet
This week PeakD, the popular Hive front end, released a new version. The flagship feature of this release is Curated Content Collections. In a nutshell, this allows users to create share-able lists of posts. Also in this release, PeakD overhauled the Hive-Engine wallet page. Now from the PeakD wallet you can stake/unstake, view/update delegations for Hive-Engine tokens.
Ecency Mobile Gets Customized Feeds and Recent Drafts
Ecency, the open-source Hive frontend, released mobile app updates for both iOS and Android. This release included several small improvements and a few convenient features. Ecency users can define custom content feed filters. The post editor page has also been improved.
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.
EXODE on the Verge of Launching Colonization
Exode is a space-survival NFT game built on Hive. This week @elindos from the EXODE team shared an update: EXODE is just days away from releasing a new version. The new version adds features for scanning, planet exploration, research, and colonization.
HashKings Relaunches on Hive!
HashKings, the cannabis farm game, relaunched in "Alpha" on Hive this week. Players flooded Discord with excitement and bug reports, eager to plant some seeds and earn some BUDS (one of the game's Hive-Engine tokens). @qwoyn and the HashKings team are working tirelessly to fix issues and deliver more game features.
Rising Star Launches NFTs and STARBITS Staking
This week Rising Star, the band manager game, rolled out a feature allowing artists to mint music NFTs for 120,000 STARBITS. When an NFT is minted, 20,000 STARBITS are burned and 100,000 are turned into a staking rewards pool. The Rising Star community can then earn a portion of the NFT rewards pool by staking 1,000 or more STARBITS. Stake with caution: unstaking incurs a 3-day delay.
