We have some pretty good news to share with the community today!

Hive Keychain extension v2 Beta

We've been working hard to refactor entirely our extension, and it's finally ready. It took longer than initially assumed but we are now ready to put it in Beta. Since the Chrome Store doesn't have an option for testing, we published the Beta as a separate project.
If you know Keychain really well and wish to help testing our new version, please join our Discord server (link on the bottom of this post) and go to the #extension-beta channel.
Thanks to your help, if all goes well we should be able to push it to production very soon!


We've published our new proposal a few weeks back and it is set to start at the end of this week. With 98% of the necessary votes, we are really close from being funded. If you enjoy using Keychain, please support us through the following links:

Support Hive Keychain development by voting for our proposal on PeakD, or with HiveSigner.


Last week, we onboarded @theghost1980, our third full-time developer. The team is getting bigger! =)
He is currently writing unit tests, that will soon be implemented as part as our deployment process.
Meanwhile, @cedricguillas was working on a new feature (more on this soon), while @stoodkev prepared the Beta release.

This is awesome with the update and ongoing development happening in the blockchain and I really appreciate every effort been put to it to see it succeed in a positive note.

At the time of writing this comment, I have been trying to open the extension for more than 30 minutes and it does not work, Is there something going on that we don't know about? I can't access apps that use only HiveKeychain, that's not good.

What do you mean the extension won't open? You click on the icon and nothing happens?
Are you talking about the Beta mentioned above, or the normal production version?

well done guys!

Good work all😁😎🥳💪🏻🐝

This is an amazing effort and contribution towards the growth of the blockchain. Keep up the good work
