Best way to sign up for a Hive crypto account.

Direct from the desk of Dane Williams.




The best way to sign up for a Hive crypto account is via the LeoFinance community front-end.

Are you wondering how to create a Hive wallet in order to truly own your Web3 account?

Then my friend, you have come to the right place!

Before we get into the nuts and bolts, I just want to make a few things clear from the outset.

One of the coolest things about this blockchain is that your wallet address is simply your username.

On Hive, there are no long, confusing strings that you need to remember or have stored so you can copy/paste them when required.

All you need to remember is your @ username.

So with that in mind, let’s get into the best way to sign up for a HIVE crypto account.

LeoFinance offers the best way to sign up for a Hive crypto account

LeoFinance makes it super simple to create a censorship-resistant Hive account using nothing more than your current Twitter handle.

1. Head to LeoFinance

Simply head to leofinance.io, click the get started button at the top and choose the sign up with Twitter option.

The LeoFinance home page where the get started button is located at the top.

2. Enter your details

Choose the Hive wallet address you want (remember, this is just an @ username).

If it’s not already taken, you just need to sign into your Twitter account and your account will be created.

Choose your username and sign into your Twitter account to confirm.

3. Claim your Hive crypto account keys

While you now have a working Hive account that you can use at your leisure, you want to claim the keys to your account.

Click the arrow next to your username at the top right hand corner and then select wallet.

From here, click the download Hive blockchain keys button and save the .txt file.

Claim your Hive blockchain keys.

4. Add your Hive account to Keychain

That’s it.

That’s literally all you need to do in order to sign up for a free and instant Hive crypto account.

While you can technically use your password, to keep your account secure, I’d recommend using Hive Keychain to interact with whichever Hive based Web3 dApp you please.

It’s super simple and after inputting your keys once, you will no longer have to worry about being phished or hacked.

Signing up for a Hive crypto account is easy

I’m sorry to say it, but Hive is notorious for making things harder than it should be.

If a search on how to sign up for a Hive crypto account has led you to a page called HiveOnboard, then close it right now.

It’s complicated and it doesn’t work.

Just close it.

You see, people don’t care about the tech behind new Hive accounts.

They just want one.

And they want one now!

The best way to sign up for a Hive crypto account is via LeoFinance, using the steps I’ve outlined above.

Best of probabilities to you.

Signing up for a Hive account via LeoFinance deserves to be promoted more heavily.

Normies understand signing up to things using their Twitter account.

LeoFinance makes it possible to sign up to Hive this way and start earning rewards immediately.

Only needing to download their keys to take full control of their account (and HIVE crypto earned) when they're ready.

The rewards earned on this comment will go directly to the person sharing the post on Twitter as long as they are registered with @poshtoken. Sign up at https://hiveposh.com.

Once I saw, sign up with your Twitter account, it reminded of the period, Twitter was baned in my country. It made me wonder how a lot of people might not be able to get a Hive account in my country except they use VPN's.

It's all good. This was a simple signing up illustration. Well done.

I have a big question. I can't seem to be able to use my keychain on my phone. Is this app basically only for those operating on Hive with their PC.

Cos yesterday, I saw something on someone's post, and I wanted to check it, my keychain refused to budge 🤦

There are a few other ways to sign up for a Hive crypto account that you can use if you don't have access to Twitter.

But this way via LeoFinance is just the easiest for the majority of normies because it allows them to start earning rewards immediately.

Only needing to download their keys to take full control of their account (and HIVE crypto earned) when they're ready.

I can't seem to be able to use my keychain on my phone. Is this app basically only for those operating on Hive with their PC.

You can use Hive Keychain on your mobile, but you need to do everything within the app.

So don't install it on your phone and then click the Chrome browser.

Instead, use the browser built into the Keychain mobile app.

I think I have used Ecency or 3Speak to create my account while I started my journey on Hive via LeoFinance. Haha! This is so easy. I think all dapps should have such an easy way to create accounts for free.

Just remember it's not technically free ;)

It's using the RCs that people delegating HP to the leo.voter account provide.

Never really tried to understand what are RCs and how do they work? Is it covered in the Hive Guide?

Btw, what's happening with @crypto-guides? Are we not creating any new one?

Just a quick explanation of RCs from Google:

RCs are non-transferable credits that accrue to each Hive account based on how much Hive Power (HP) it has. An account spends RC when it transacts on the Hive blockchain. RCs regenerate over a 5 day period. If an account doesn't have sufficient credits, the transaction will not be allowed to occur.

As a normal user with HP, you don't have to worry.

But they essentially stop the network getting spammed.


As for crypto guides, it's just on pause.

It was getting downvoted by the Hive elite (which obvs looks gross for outward facing content).

And was a shitload of editing work for me because I couldn't force people to follow my exact template.

Unfortunately the community model I was using just didn't work.

I will eventually bring it back as a more professional, paid 'writing job' where I can demand standards.

But yeah, I just don't have the time at the moment to do it.

I still have some formalities to get completed, and was wondering as whom to ask. Can I seek your guidance...

Of course, what do you need a hand with?

It might also be worth jumping into the daily blog on @leomarkettalk and asking your questions there.

Or on the LeoFinance Discord (which you can find the link to in the bottom right hand corner of the Leo homepage).
