It has been several days now since we introduced you to the Hive Tour and its latest update.
We continue our work and the journey we have taken with you with additional concepts, stages and steps.
Introducing financial stages
After presenting several stages relating to the social aspects of Hive, let's now see a little bit about the financial side, another important part of the Hive ecosystem.
There are a lot of financial operations that can be performed on the Hive blockchain. So as not to drown you from the start, we will first discuss the operations related to the tokens you have: HIVE, HP and HBD
As you can see, no less than 23 new steps are offered to you to discover the different financial actions. Remember that the Hive blockchain is a feeless transaction. This means that there are no hidden costs when you do these operations. A good reason to give these a try and complete your tour.
Here are the main stages we release with this new update:
1. Managing HIVE
HIVE is the primary currency of the Hive blockchain. It is also referred to as a coin and that is typically the first one a Hive user encounters.
HIVE is a liquid token and there is no restriction to transferring or trading it.
Holding HIVE does not provide any direct financial return or any right on the blockchain's governance.
2. Managing Hive Power
Hive Power (HP) is simply HIVE that you have staked (which is also referred to as "powered up")
Your HIVE that has been converted to Hive Power will then be less liquid, as it takes 13 weeks to convert it back to HIVE.
In return, you will benefit in the form of rewards for your curation work, and you will have a say in the allocation of the reward pool, as well as in the governance of the blockchain.
The steps from this stage will help you familiarize yourself with this transformation process.
3. Managing HBD
HBD, or Hive Backed Dollars or Hive Dollars, are another of the three tokens in the Hive ecosystem.
It is loosely pegged to the US dollar and can be printed (generated) as a part of your post rewards.
More to come
We have worked a lot in the last few days on the next steps. We can therefore make other regular releases next month, after the Hive Power Up Day.
By the way, the Hive Power Up Day starts tomorrow. Take part and you will kill two birds with one stone since there is one of the financial stages which involves doing a power-up.
We haven't finished having fun. Stay tuned!
