Hive Smart Chain is being worked on some. Don't know the progress of it right now since there is another project that needs to see the light of day first.
What Hive needs is a truly decentralized smart contract platform that can allow for projects to spin things up very inexpensively.
There are a number of projects that are focusing upon that. We will see where things stand in 3-4 months.
The latest paper by the Speak Network details a great deal about that too.
