This Week in Hive-Powered dApps, Tribes, & Tokens

Hive powers a growing number of decentralized apps (dApps). Since they all live on the same chain, one Hive account can access every app. Here's a quick summary of the Hive app landscape.

DBuzz, the micro-blogging dapp, announced an expansion into long form content. A change will roll out in a few weeks and allow for posts longer than 280 characters. [info]

LeoFinance, the finance blogging dapp, has deployed a new "Lightning DB" feature this week. The feature makes the app 10X faster when posting comments. The Leo team also shared an onboarding report. 346 onboarded users have done at least 1 Hive operation. [info]
