The News is back.

Corona related issues have been an over distraction for the past couple of months. Now with some degree of normality returning, it's time to post again.

This first reboot issue will be a little catch-up, and a little mind the gaps, but a full service should be returning in two or three days.

This edition includes news and updates about Spinterlands, Upbit Exchange, D.Buzz, HiveOnboard,, Cryptobrewmaster, BUILDTEAM and the Block Party.

HIVE NEWS aims to primarily cover news about new developments and activities on the Hive blockchain that might interest and attract people to Hive.

The developments on another blocktrain currently affecting the funds of 60+ Hivians will not therefore be reported here in depth. They have already been covered at great length by others.

Reference to recent posts by @apshamilton will provide ample information for anyone wanting to know more about the situation.
