What is Hive (HIVE)?

Hive is a cutting-edge, futuristic decentralized blockchain and ecosystem that is designed to grow in order to gain acceptance as a widely used platform and currency. Hive's ultra-rapid processing rates and fee-free transactions have placed it among the top Web3 blockchains used by users globally.

How does Hive (HIVE) work?

Delegated Proof of Stake is the consensus mechanism that Hive uses (DPoS). By making sure that transactions are accurately represented, this algorithm secures the blockchain. A DPoS system is a form of tech-based democracy that uses voting and election procedures to safeguard blockchain from centralization and abuse. Regarding how this relates to Hive, the weight of your vote is determined by the amount of Hive Power (HP) that you have invested on your account. The Hive server, which creates new blocks and maintains the entire network's functionality and security, is run by witnesses who are chosen by stakeholders. 

Hive is the blockchain for multimedia. Blogging stories, sharing videos, livestreams, sounds and images. Returning the value created by creativity back to the creators themselves. The users are the owners of this decentralised platform.

Hive has their own wallet called Hivewallet - a fast, secure and open source wallet for the Hive blockchain. Encryption wise it is just as safe as the cli_wallet app provided by the Hive software, using AES 256 encryption and per device & per (re-)install unique initialisation vector. Also the app obliges you to choose a difficult to guess passphrase for encrypting your wallet file. You can opt to store that passphrase in your device's native keychain, if your device provides biometric access (Touch ID, Face ID, Fingerprint) and you have that feature enabled.
