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

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

DBuzz Enhancements

This week DBuzz rolled out some enhancements. They've made it so the first 3 URLs in posts don't count towards the 280-character limit. And video embeds received some tweaks.

DunkSocial Launch and Claim Drop

A new basketball-oriented tribe has launched! @rob23 launched the DunkSocial tribe site (https://dunksocial.io) and is distributing DUNK tokens via 3 claim drops. The announcement post has the details for the first claim drop. If you're a basketball fan, you have a new home for sharing content and engaging with other fans.

Ecency Desktop Updates

This week Ecency's desktop app received an update including all recent changes on Ecency.com. There's a new landing page, a curator leaderboard and several other improvements.

Redesigned HiveSigner Coming

@good-karma shared excited HiveSigner news this week. The app is being revamped. The post has many screenshots highlighting its new UI. The redesigned HiveSigner app will be deployed alongside hardfork 25 (June 30th).


This Week in Hive-Powered Games

Hive is home to a growing number of blockchain games. Here's a quick summary of updates for Hive games.

Exode Disclosed Planet Scanning Updates

Exode, the space survival simulation game, shared an exciting update this week. @elindos announced that a planet scanning experience update is coming soon. Crew members will have ranks. Event feedback dialog is being refined.

NFTMart Adds DCrops and FishMaster NFTs

@NFTMart has onboarded two new games to their NFT marketplace. The first appears to be an upcoming fishing game called Fish Master (@fishmaster). The second is a farming simulator game called dCrops (@dcrops). DCrops is already playable in the alpha phase of release.

Splinterlands Sells Out Of Land and Untamed Packs

This week Splinterlands sold out of land and Untamed packs. This means land plots and Untamed card packs are now available only from secondary markets and cannot be purchased directly from Splinterlands. The sales happened so fast I almost missed the news about the 14th and final cardrop. Hero of the Beyond has airdropped, and he's an epic Life monster card with a ranged attack.
