Hive Today - September 25th, 2020

animated banner.gif

Welcome back for another dose of weekly Hive news. This is the fourth edition of Hive Today. The goal here is to summarize development updates and news to provide a curated news digest for the Hive community. Hive Today is published every Saturday.

We now have an awesome new logo created by the talented @doze. Thank you @doze, I've set you as a beneficiary for this post.

I’m doing my best to keep an eye on everything newsworthy and I know I’m still missing things. If there are specific stories or events you would like to see in the next edition please leave a comment. If you show me something new that I use next week, I'll add you as a beneficiary to next week's post.

Let's go!


Hive Chain News

Here it comes! October 6th has been set as the official launch date for Hive hard fork 24 (the Eclipse). A countdown timer is running on the home page. This is a big deal because it is the first major upgrades to the software, led by the community, following Hive's fork from Steem in March, 2020. Hive is becoming version 1.24, and getting a unique chain ID, along with many other improvements. [more info]

@ENCRYPT3DBR0K3R, the new Hive whale whom we mentioned 2 weeks back, bought yet another 1M+ Hive from the open market. This wallet now holds more than 2.6M Hive Power. Impressive!


Hive-powered Games

Holybread (

The new Holybread team which took over after the Hive fork has been busy working on a code re-write. @simplegame shared some roadmap updates this week. [info]

Rabona (

New arrival! A new football/soccer manager game has launched on Hive. Rabona launched open beta on Friday September 25th, 2020 at 1800 UTC. Check it out at [info]

Rising Star (

This week @RisingStarGame announced a Beta launch date, November 1st, 2020. In addition, some game configuration changes were immediately put into effect. Epic and legendary card drop rates have been decreased. The ego system has also been tweaked. [info]


Hive-powered dApps and Tribes

HiveBuzz (

HiveBuzz has made some updates to the badges for regular authors. The site now shows progress gauges for the "Weekly Author" and "Monthly Author" badges. [info]

LeoFinance (

Once again this week there is a lot of activity around the LeoFinance tribe. First, the initial LEOM miner token supply has sold out on Hive-Engine. LEOM can still be bought, but only from other members and at much higher prices.

LEO token price has surpassed 1.0 Hive. As of this writing the price hovers around 1 HIVE / LEO. While the market cap is still not at parity with HIVE, this is an impressive milestone. The buying action is driven by the launch of wLEO (wrapped-LEO ETH tokens) and corresponding Uniswap listing. After only a few days the Uniswap WLEO/ETH liquidity pool surpassed $200,000. [3]

PeakD (

Hive-powered PeakD blogging app has rolled out some changes to help with content discovery. Users can now filter by most-viewed posts. In addition the dark mode theme colors have been updated (even darker than before!). Users can now use @roelandp's HiveWallet mobile app to log in to PeakD. [info]

Thank you much, appreciate the help sourcing info. Information gathering is the most time consuming step of creating this.

Hive is rolling 💪

Picking up speed!

Once again another excellent post. I appreciate the effort you put into doing it.
As good as picking up a paper or magazine for a variety of stuff to read about and delve into.

Thanks for reading!

I love HiveToday very interesting and full of information.

Thanks! What other information can we add to make it even better?

Thanks for the beneficiary percentage! I appreciate it!
It would be great to see more and more meetups in that section! Especially those that are held "in live"...

Thank you for your work to collect all these news into this HiveToday edition!

I only found a couple under "meetup" tag. There may be more virtual meetups. Do you know of any?

I know that @nathanmars does them occasionally... Unfortunately, because of this plandemic thing, people don't organize them more... I hope that it will change in some normal time...

I hope so, too. I saw the UK meetup, but it already happened so I didn't include this time. If there is a future one planned, I can definitely mention it!

Congratulations @hivetoday! You have completed the following achievement on the Hive blockchain and have been rewarded with new badge(s) :
