Hive Hard Fork 25 is Coming - June 30th.

Pre-hardfork infrastructure upgrades took place this week, causing some apps to break down. Despite these minor issues, it looks like the June 30th release is holding.


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.

Proposal for a Flutter HiveSigner Plugin

Hive developer, @martibis, created the apps Pinmapple, Haveyoubeenhere, BuyMeBerries. Martibis created a new proposal this week, seeking funding to build a HiveSigner plugin for the popular Flutter app framework. The plugin would make it easier for mobile app developers to integrate their apps with the Hive network.

PeakD Highlights Hard Fork 25 Feature Implementations

This week @PeakD published a thorough post that shows exactly how new HF25 Hive features will show up in the PeakD front end app. It also provides a good review of all the hardfork changes.


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.

Rising Star's Upcoming "Festival World Tour" Feature

This week @risingstargame published an update on the upcoming "Festival World Tour" feature. Festivals will happen in real-time like seasons. Players can complete missions within the festival to earn festival wristband items (NFTs). After collecting all wristbands in an area, the cards can be burned to unlock one of 4 band members. After all 4 band members are collected, those can be burned to unlock a "festival band" card. Get ready to grind!

Splinterlands is Suspended from Twitter

This week the @splinterlands Twitter account was suspended without warning. As of this writing, the account has not been reinstated, despite several community members requesting help from Twitter. Those that follow @splinterlands on Twitter know that nothing offensive or rule-breaking was ever posted there. Amazing!
