3 Reasons Why Hive Continues To Thrive

I was poking around Twitter tonight, like the majority of crypto addicts tend to do on the daily. And then I saw this tweet from the 'HiveBlocks' Twitter account...


I see what you guys did there...All time Hive ;)

But yes, here we are....24 hours after an all time high for our glorious little blockchain, along comes yet another...All time high!

These have been the images I've included in the past few Tweets I've sent out myself lol





At the time of me writing this post we're 'back' at $1.78, but what a journey...

Just think where we were at this time last year?

Need a reminder?

13 cents!

On November 25th, 2020 the Hive token was trading at 13 cents lol

For those keeping track, that's a 1219% increase according to the good folks at @coingecko

Excuse me while I say it again but...


Yeah for a lot of us here on Hive that didn't abandon ship during those 13 cent days, today is pretty sweet. But why the pump? What's going on with this blockchain? Is it all because of Splinterlands? Maybe it's all those sweet SPK airdrops that are headed or way?

I think Hive captures a few things that most other chains never seem to get right...It's 3 phases of a successful blockchain project and they go like this:


Sure we're not Ethereum or whichever smart contract blockchain du jour, but we've got some of the most amazing devs on the planet. And they are always doing awesome work.

From the dapps to the back end development, to the games to the Hive Engine eco-system, there is always something being built and developed!

Actual Use Case

This is funny, because you'd think by 2021 use case would be a no brainer for crypto adoption and popularity....Obviously, you have never heard of a memecoin?

Seriously though, Hive is jam packed with every day use case with...Wait for it...Actual users!

Games, applications, trading, social media, whatever you can think of, seems to have a use case here on the chain.


And finally, without the people here, Hive would have never been born. Literally, formed from the ashes of the previous blockchain this place has risen like a phoenix and continued to grow with the battle scars to prove it.

People...Are Hive's greatest asset! And community will always be king here. True decentralization, no ninja mine, no one person behind the curtain pulling the strings. We truly are (as my good friend @NathanMars always states) Hive OWNERS!

So here's my thinking, looking back at WHY Hive is doing so well these past 12 months. It's because we capture everything here, development, use case and community.

Other blockchain projects might have 1 or 2 of these, but rarely do you find all 3. Add the fact that, we've got zero fees and 3 second transactions, it's like icing on the cake!!

Excuse my 'fan boy-ism' because I haven't written a good ol' fashioned shilling post in a while, but today is a day to celebrate. And hey, maybe we go back to a dollar, maybe we go to 5 bucks...

I really don't care LOL

I'm much more interested in...

The development. The use case. And the community!

And no matter what the price of Hive will end up being in a year from now, you can almost guarantee those 3 things will always be front and center...

And the 3$ upvote is so sick on my case… just to think that upvoting someone could basically buy someone a snack. Crazy 😝

It really feels great and worth celebrating.


Yeah man lol

It's a crazy feeling for sure. If we get to those old Steem levels...8 bucks for an all time high, think how much your vote will be worth then ;)


Exactly… and being able to showcase those moments will be definitely what I will be looking for to curate because I know it will make a huge difference on creating very solid foundations for the future of the entire community. Along with it, teaching one another and helping initiatives.


So true!!!

I imagine you walking down the street throwing snacks at people. I knew crypto is just a conspiracy of the dentists.



Like a printing machine... but with food =)

!BEER and !PIZZA for that thought!

Thanks man!


I just can't believe I forgot to go to the Gym again yesterday.
That's six years in a row now.

@amirl, I sent you an $LOLZ on behalf of @forykw
Use the !LOL or !LOLZ command to share a joke and an $LOLZ. (1/2)


$3 upvote? That would buy me a lunch. I mean a complete menu. Soup + something else. There are some restaurants, where you can get this for 1000 Hungarian Forint (HUF), and that is currently $3.04 USD, because $1 USD is currently 328.60 Hungarian Forint (HUF).

Have a nice day. All the best. Greetings from Hungary.


Been on here for 4 years, beginning with Steemit $8 days & sticking through 13 cents days, posting pretty much daily. These are days to celebrate 🎊


Definitely. !WINE to that.

The price pump up is really awesome and I can't wait to see it reach $2 before the year runs out.


The rate it's going, we might hit 2 bucks tomorrow lol


Sure base on believe


2 bucks done and dusted 😏


LOL Ancient news!


🎄 Christmas rally is running. 2 $ are almost reached, maybe we even see the 3$ 👏🏻


It's coming!!! lol


Wow that will be a good present for Christmas.


Beautifully written, I smiled at the end of all you said... The price going back to a dollar or even 50 bucks doesn't matter 👌 I agree with you on that.

Aside all the other reasons for the pump, the community reason is so valid and I felt appreciated while reading it.

Thanks for this post you shared this morning, now I think I should go check my wallet to see something 😃🤣


Thanks for the comments, and glad to hear you enjoyed it!


It's so frigg'n awesome. I love the part about having actual humans on Hive. That's what makes Hive as amazing as it is.

We need all three to succeed and everyone can participate in their own way. In a way, so long as the three continue to be here, HIVE's price will be higher than what it is today.

I remember when I first joined the chain...There was a post that stuck with me...The author made a case that without these 3 things (development, content creators and investors) a project will fail...I think we're finally seeing the investors start showing up in droves.


I think I would wait a bit to see if the investors stay. After all we don't know if they are here just for the airdrops and if they will stick around. However I think they made a good choice by investing in HIVE since it has a lot of potential.

I had a conversation with a friend of mine, he's just starting to get into blockchain and crypto investing but plans to go big into some projects...He's thinking Hive now because I've been bugging him for years LOL

Once they 'see' what's being built here, people will stay :)

I hope lol


a new world ! thank you for all these very useful informations

@sashac1 remember who voted you first! I expect you will mint me a NFT with you first upvote on your way to the top ;)


I remember your vote 😀let's continue our paths to success !


Everything seems great, glad to see how the community is confident and behind Hive after all those dips, now the price is at the top. I can’t wait for us to $2 a dip


Yeah that'll be interesting to find out what the new floor for Hive will be.


Lol hive market value,is getting upvotes on the market 😂
Like I’m about to get upvotes for this comment....


I also think that the HIVE community is the greatest in the blockchain ecosystem.


It really is. Lots of places say they have a great community but it's usually because they hope their investment gives them a good return in 90 days or less lol
