The Hive Expansion

If we look at all the issues that hive is facing, one of the most talked about is the onboarding problem. So much has been written and talked about it. It's great to wonder how we could improve it to bring more users to our blockchain; to increase the demand for our token and our dapps.

When speaking about onboarding a lot of people are seeing a top down concept where somebody makes marketing and at the end we get more users. It's certainly one solution but it's not the only one.

The Hive expansion, the answer to onboarding the masses?

During the last week, I've had the chance to witness something amazing. I've joined several crypto related platforms. What I've seen on these platforms is a Hive expansion.

On platforms like Lbry, Torum, Publish0x, noise.cash, the hive people are making a real difference.

Of course my vision might be slightly biased because of the fact that most of my friends and followers on these platforms are people from Hive. But I can't help to notice that these people make a huge difference and they are doing an amazing job to promote Hive to the crypto world.

What is so special about the Hivians on these platforms?

What I've found the most remarkable is that the Hivians transport the Hive culture to these platforms and they are massively successful with it.

You said Hive culture?

Yes, there is a Hive culture and it has precise characteristics:

Hive people know how to create quality content

Writing a post with 400 words, a piece of cake for most of them. Write short meaningful messages, no problem. Writing good comments? One class above everybody else.

Hive people know how to engage

Instead of asking questions like „follow me“, „nice“, „wow“, Hive people actually know how to write quality comments. They know that if somebody leaves a meaningful comment on their posts, they will answer these comments. They know that it's necessary to listen in order to be heard.

Hive people help others

In a world where everybody is watching his own backyard or his own wallets, Hive people have been infused with the 50/50 reward split. If you profit, I profit as well. They know that you have to give in order to receive. They are happy when you are successful.

Hive people stick together

If two hivians meet on one of these platforms, there is a certain respect among them. From all the posts and comments that were exchanged, they actually know each other in some ways and their world is not full of anonymous people. In the Hive world, people have a voice, often a face and a history. We are all part of the same family.

For all these reasons, the Hive people are literally crashing it on these platforms. They link their Hive posts there and provide added value to these sites. In their posts they present hive, the dapps, the whole ecosystem. Each link and each post is an entry point to the hive ecosystem and I believe it's one of the best magnet to attract new users to our blockchain. People see these posts, they get curious, they research and some of them will join Hive.

A big shout out to all the Hivians out there that make Hive such a great place!


Let's connect ! You can find me on these platforms:

Exactly, there is the content, the quality of it, the engagement and also all the dapps and games are presented to the outside world. In my eyes this has a huge positive impact on people and could attract a lot of new Hivians.

I cannot agree more. As I join and become involved in these new platforms, I am beginning to see a lot of the same names providing the quality posts and comments. I guess the cream rises to the top regardless of where it is.

You are quite right about that. I believe that all the people on hive are going through a kind of education when we are active on this platform. We train by writing content and engaging and we are getting better and better at it. This transaltes in a culture that is simply better trained at such things.

We have to be the promoters and demonstrate by our actions that Hive is a great place to be. And I do agree that platforms like noise.cash and Torum are good places to build our brands and expand the Hive community as well.

Thanks a lot for stopping by Lisa!

I think onboarding is a little confusion here.
But i still like it.

Before we can onboard people, we need to make them aware of the platform and I agree that it's still a bit too complicated to get started.

Contest on Hive is really very good quality.

I believe that there is a bit of everything on hive but you definitely find very high quality posts. Thanks for your comment!

The real trick is getting facebook and instagram normies to change over. They are used to dumbed down interfaces with one image posts and only one password to use. Most can't be bothered to take the time to wait for the hive account to activate either.

I think that at the moment Hive is not yet ready to welcome these people. It's still a bit too complicated to get started for them. On the other hand it's now much easier to get started for people who already know what a wallet is and how to use keys. When I look at what Leofinance is doing, I believe we are going into the good direction to make hive accessible for the normies ou there. Thanks a lot for your comment!

Hive is better off without the dumpster fire of normie users anyway.

I quite agree with you :-)

The before you know it, they will be bringing censorship with them and denial of service attacks.
