Hive: Thriving Ecosystem Designed For NFT Adoption

Disclaimer: The text below is an advertorial article that was not written by Cryptonews.com journalists.

Hive is the secret gem of blockchain. With a two second transaction speed and bridging the gap between social media and crypto, Hive has arrived! The fact that the protocol has not brought even more buzz is a mystery, especially with its amazing transaction speed, free transactions and die-hard fans. Hive also has Splinterlands built on its blockchain, by far the biggest blockchain game in the world! And that’s only the tip of the iceberg in the world of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs. Hive hosts a whole array of wildly popular NFTs and games.

The world is slowly starting to notice Hive’s incredible upward trajectory, and those who realize this early will be able to reap its rewards before more investors and influencers catch on. In the world of NFTs, Hive is the protocol to watch out for.

Fees and Transaction Times

Low fees “is good”, “0 fees” is even better!

With people realizing the drawbacks of Ethereum, Solana, Polygon’s scaling with high transaction times and fees, crypto and NFT fans are looking at other places to park their hard-earned cash. With Ethereum gaining notoriety for its fees that can sometimes cost more than NFTs themselves and an increasingly clogged network, these factors become more important over time. To put it bluntly, many games have died on other chains because of these fees and transaction times. If it takes minutes, or even hours, for the NFTs on your games to pop up, it can cause problems to the experience as a whole.

With Hive, however, and its tested and proven delegated Proof-of-Stake system, the platform has made it easy for NFTs and games to be developed in its ecosystem. This is a big reason as to why several NFTs and games are seen being developed on Hive. Once more developers, investors and gamers realize Hive for its true value, more will flock to this fully realized protocol.

Hive’s Unique Social Media Integrations, Proof-of-Brain, and NFT Promotion Capabilities

Other protocols are also still trying to figure out how to bridge the gap between social media and NFTs. This is monumentally important. The amount of social media channels that pop up for projects in order to promote them shows how important having these channels are. 

NFTs need communities. The more exposure art and games get, the higher chance that the project will become successful. Most art and games in existence have to depend on third party forums, like Twitter or Facebook. Hive’s answer to more mainstream adoption is the social media present on its platform. This is a decentralized social media, owned by its community members. The community decides its fate, rather than it being subject to centralized entities.

Proof-of-Brain has members of the Hive community earning through just participation, like blogging, discussion, participation and playing games, along with dapp creation. This powerful execution shows just how far the protocol will go and the characteristics it has that other blockchain projects lack. It’s no wonder that, even though investors and influencers have yet to catch on, Hive already has die-hard fans who believe in the project.
