How to get a Hive Account

A short piece of content that is design for quick interaction with an audience. This is a medium on the Internet that is shorter than its longer form counterpart, blogging.

Microblogs are in a variety of formats:

  • text
  • video
  • audio
  • images

The most popular social media applications have microblogging.

Leofinance seeks to be one of the first to bring microblogging to the blockchain. With the release of LeoThreads it is testing out the infrastructure on the Hive network.

By using Hive for the purpose of microblogging, it allows for the incorporation of cryptocurrency into a Web 3.0 dynamic. Since Hive is a decentralized database, the data is posted on chain. This makes it immutable.

At the same time, tokens can be utilized for the purpose of distributed reward pools under the Proof-of-Brain mechanism.

The key distinction from a blockhcain perspective is that what is post through LeoThreads is not a top line post. Instead, the comment layer is where all the "threads" are placed. This makes a difference in the users feeds and autovoters.

Most people are familiar with microblogging via the most popular application, Twitter.
