Ask the Hive: what do you expect from the upcoming hard fork?

in Ask the Hivelast month

Hi there my Hivean friends and followers!

Welcome to my ATH (Ask the Hive) weekly series that I created to increase the engagement level on Hive (or at least among my followers).

In the last round, we had a very interesting and prolific debate about whether you prefer outdoor workout or regular gym that eventually generated as many as 32 comments - thanks for your contribution guys! I hope we will have a lot of engagement in this round too :)

The question for this round is: what do you expect from the upcoming hard fork?


As you probably know, the official final date of the next Hive hard fork has been announced - it will happen on October 6. I am not a techie and I haven´t read all of the posts dedicated to the upcoming hard fork (its name is Eclipse btw) but I have some ideas of what it should bring or change.

With that being said, I figured it could be interesting to ask you guys what your personal expectations from this event are. I am excited to check out what you will have to say about it in the comment section below ;)

As usually, I will try to upvote all relevant comments.

HF24 / Eclipse is primarily a technical update. Most users may not even notice that a fork has occurred.
However, what is very important is the fact that the blockchain ID will change and Steemit will remain a thing of the past. This is especially important for application developers.
I would like to write a short post about HF in Czech. We'll see how it goes with time.
I will upgrade my witness server today and from the evening I should confirm the blocks with version 1.24.2

However, I'd like to stick out Eclipse, which is a great, concise and in a way funny name;)

Thanks for this little insight into the actual content of the hard fork :) The definitive disconnection from Steem sounds great. Fingers crossed so that everything goes smoothly.

I believe the HF will be done smoothly. The devs are doing great job.

Btw. My witness server is running Eclipse now. I wait for time around 19:20 CET for signing the next block with this version. Then the 1.24.2 will be shown. for my witness.

Sinceramente espero que este nuevo hard fork sea para mejorar la plataforma y no como en casos anteriores que desmejoran los beneficios para los creadores de contenido, aunque creo que ya se está sintiendo el eclipse porque no están valorando mucho los post y cuando lo hacen el valor que dan es sumamente bajo, cosa que entristece y desanima muchísimo porque no es justo.

No te preocupes, que yo sepa, el próximo hard fork no tendrán nada que ver con la distribución de recompensas. Gracias por tu contribución :)

i expect it to work and not notice that it happened :D

it is all technical stuff, end users would only notice if it goes really wrong, or they could notice that things work a bit faster.

That´s pretty much what I heard too :) Hopefully it will be a smooth one. Thanks for stopping by man.

Good afternoon. For me personally, this is a very difficult question. Thanks for the nice post. Good luck to you

Well, hard forks are pretty big things in the world of blockchains but this particular one shouldn´t be a big deal for us, ordinary users ;) Thanks for joining this round man, have a nice weekend.

Thank you for responding to my comment. Have a good evening.

I expecting after hardfork the price of Hive will be up. So anything must be do inside the HF, just like modification and change about Powerdown less than 13 weeks. 😁

Some kind of price pump would be nice, that´s for sure. I know there is an ongoing debate about the optimal length of the power down process but this hard fork will have nothing to do with it. Thanks for your feedback ;)

Okay 😁
