Months ago Hive and ARK announced a partnership. Recently, ARK's MarketSquare team has been pumping out marketing for Hive dApps. You can see the growing list on MarketSquare.io. MarketSquare's goal is to be the home page for the decentralized web. Several days this week the @HelloMSQ Twitter account posted partnership announcements including short introduction videos for a handful of Hive dapps. They called this campaign #MarketSquareXHive week.
