Hive Revolution - Mission 1 - Communication

in #revolution4 years ago (edited)

And give me silence, give me water, hope.
Give me the struggle, the iron, the volcanoes.
Let bodies cling like magnets to my body.
Come quickly to my veins and to my mouth.
Speak through my speech, and through my blood.

Pablo Neruda, “The Heights of Machu Picchu”

Say it loud, but discreetly

Communication and discretion are among the key factors in preparing for a successful revolution.

This is why the aim of this first mission is to teach you how to communicate and exchange confidential information with your comrades in an efficient but secure way.

For this, we will use encryption techniques which are made available to us by the Hive blockchain.

Mission objectives

  • To transfer Revolution funds between rebels.
  • To learn how to use encrypted memo


To be able to accomplish this mission, you must have already received your revolutionary badge!

If you are not yet part of the Revolution, it is still possible to join us. Read this post to learn how.


  1. Send 0.005 HIVE to @hive.revolution with the following memo: #mission1-ready
    Note: Be careful to put a "#" at the beginning of your memo! By preceding the memo text with a #, the blockchain will encrypt it and made it unreadable for anyone but you and @hive.revolution.

  2. @hive.revolution will then transfer some HIVE tokens to you with an encrypted memo
    Note: The content of the encrypted memo will be different for each rebel. There is no point in sharing your memo with your fellow comrades.

    This is how an encrypted memo looks like:

  1. Decrypt the memo using your memo key
    Note: To be able to read an encrypted memo, you will need your memo key. There are several ways to read an encrypted memo. If you don't know how to do it, ask your revolutionary comrades. It is by searching for yourself that you will learn the best. This will also allow us to test the mutual support capacity of our troops. (Hint: use the Revolution Support channel on Discord to talk with your comrades. )

    This is how a decrypted memo looks like:

  2. Follow your new instructions found in the memo
    Note: Now that you have decrypted the memo sent by @hive.revolution, scrupulously follow the instructions it contains. We cannot tell you more here since the instructions will be different for everyone.

It is only if you execute all the above steps correctly that you will be authorized to participate in the next missions! If all went well, you will receive your 1st class badge.

This mission will be monitored manually. Since the command team also needs rest, you may have to wait a while to receive your encrypted instructions. Be patient (another key for a successful revolution)!

Good luck, comrades!

Revolution! Revolution!

Help! I tried to do this and you need to use your active key to send funds, but it told me, "failed, check to see if you have your memo key."
I thought just putting the hastag in the memo made it encrypted, and you use your memo key to read the encrypted return message?

Dear @phoenixwren, You also need your memo key to encrypt your message in the first place. The easiest way to do it is installing keychain on your browser and putting in your masterpasswort. With this you have all your keys and dont need to put in anything again. Not sure if its so easy with only hivelogin. If you need further help please come and join our discord support channel:

What worked for me:

  1. Sign in to using your Memo key. It may help to open it in a private browsing/incognito tab for this purpose.
  2. When you send your HIVE with the message as shown in the post instructions above, it should ask you to confirm the transfer with your Active key, but the Memo key should have already assigned encryption as described above.
  3. You can then verify successful encryption by going to your account view in to see what the public can read.

Thank you so much, I got it to work. And I had to do it through, because when I tried it on peakd I got an error. LOL.

This was a good first mission, learning how to use the private memo function, I never had a cause to use it before, so I had to go and find my key and update keychain, so now all set to go into the future.

Good job @bashadow! Always good to learn something new 😉👍

Mission One done! 🤠

Congratulations @manncpt

Thank you 😙

Just signed up for The Revolution! Can't wait to get started!

Looking forward to it 🙂

Just got my badge and signed up for the mission, excited to fight for freedom!

Mission complete! Viva la revolution!

Mission 1 Complete
I hope that i´m not too late!

Great job comerad! It is never too late 😉

Hey there @hivebuzz ^^ .. I already changed my avatar a while ago on steem with the shown one here .. but actually I am not sure what to do next .. I also was sending the memo transaction to @hive.revolution .. have I done everything correctly ?

Well did you get your badge yet @adalger? If you changed your avatar on steem with the right URL and haven't been posting there for at least 5 days already, you should have gotten a revolution badge. Once you have that one you are able to do mission 1 and send the memo. If you did everything correctly you should get your answer from hive.revolution account and get your badge soon 😉
If you still have questions feel free to come to our support discord chat:
Also if you havent yet, It would be very appreciated if you could vote for our proposal on so we can keep up the good work!
cheers, liz from hivebuzz team

hmm .. I actually tried to do everything as explained, but I still have not received the badge .. there must be something I missed ;(

Hmm weird. If I look up your profile I can see you have the revolution badge. If you still have trouble with the mission please come to our discord channel, where we have our experts and also a few examples on what could have gone wrong :/

cheers, liz


Awesome @feebie! Great job comrade!😉😉
Also in case you havent yet; It would be very appreciated if you could vote for our proposal on so we can keep up the good work!
cheers, liz from hivebuzz team

This was such a great bit of fun! Thanks so much for putting this together, and vive la révolution! 😊

Happy you enjoyed it 😉 Now we are working on the next one! Great job @traciyork!👍

Wow, I want that badge too. Feel excited about it. I am waiting a subsidy from the government to buy some Hive on blocktrades. They said it will be next week.

Nice! did you get your revolution badge already? after that it will be super easy for you to get this one ;)

Sorry, but I tried doing this but it said I was missing some authority or something. I did everything as laid out in the post, so I don't know why it won't complete the transaction. I tried it twice and got the same message.

hivebuzz congratulation of plataform

Can you send a screenshot of this message? Did you get your revolution badge yet? - You can do the mission after you got it.
If you still fail to proceed, please come to discord support channel 🙂

I just tried it again and it worked this time (I didn't get an error message.)

But this is the message I got after sending the hive with the memo:

Please come and check at Discord support channel if you still have problems :)

This is the message I am getting too.

I went to your discord and I see other people having the same issue I'm having, except I'm on Linux, instead of a mobile device.

What a great initiative! Message just sent!

Love it. I'm in the game!

Is it just me or is Hive the fun, inventive, creative platform we always wanted!?

Awesome! Another comrade that is brave enough to take this mission 😉
it is in fact what we always wanted!! So glad to be here with all of you ❤️❤️

Message sent. I didn't know this was even an option. Cool!

If HIVE can be the basis for a standalone encrypted messaging app, that would be awesome. 1 HIVE = 1,000 messages, and each message received is another that can be sent out. Some dev needs to get on that. I'm just an idea guy, not a programmer.

Great job completing your first mission comrade @jacobtothe😎
Right? Always nice to learn something new isn't it! 😉
This idea sounds interesting 👍 - you should go find a programmer to look over it with you🙂

I was thinking about this the other day as well. *Sigh... If only I was a programmer. lol

Mission complete. I like this game :)

Viva la revolution!

Great job comrade @outlinez! ¡Viva la revolucion!

I haven’t got my badge yet. I changed my steemit a/c with the revolution sign.

Sometimes it can take a while @redheadpei! We have to make sure everything is in order. If you changed your avatar with the right URL: '...dIp9oZl.png' and didnt post in the last 5 days, it shouldnt take too long though 😉
Let me know if it still didnt work after you did both of those points.
cheers, @lizanomadsoul from hivebuzz team

Thanks @liznomadsoul. It worked now.😊

nice 👍

I had to use the Hive Wallet and have learned something new to me today 😉

¡Viva la revolucion!

Cheers and !BEER

Great job @johannpiber! 🙂🙂🙂👍

Mission completed... also, cool! Never knew about the # description memo thing... NICE! :D

So, I may not be encrypting the right way.

  • This is correct for the memo, right?

But when I look at my wallet on another browser that is not logged into my account, I still see the memo words.

I also tried a few other combinations of #

  1. Posted the transaction in the brave browser using Peaked.
  2. went into crime and just passed my wallet URL (not logged in to peaked)
  3. I still see all the messages un-encrypted...
  4. Not sure how I am messing this up... lol

Image 20200510 at 3.04.44 PM.png

  • Here are the variation of # posting I tried.. all of them are readable in the wallet :/

Where am I going wrong on this?

I am having the same issue. I did everything right but the message still appears in plain text

Try to look at your post in I see it encrypted in this place.. perhaps the encryption is based on IP address?? IDK.. but I could see the message non encrypted in another browser that was not logged in... so.. IDK.. lol.

I will check it out. Thanks

👍 I hope it helps. :D

Worked perfectly. Thanks man

Great job @jacuzzi! What a great role model you are 😉
That is the goal! To keep this revolution alive and teach some things at the same time 😉

I still have to wait 3 days ... All because of problems with the keys. But, I - will wait :)

No worries! You'll have enough time to accomplish this mission still 😉🙂 We will not forget about you comrade😉👍

Thank you, the longer you wait - the sweeter the taste of achievement!

True story 😉👍

Although, waiting does unreal things, for example


Interesing, i love Hive
