This week in Hive Chain News

HiveFest5 is coming up in just 1 week. Hivers will meet up in AltspaceVR on December 18th. 600 Hivers have already registered! Attendees should now RSVP for the event in AltspaceVR, after logging in. [info]

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.

Late addition: Saturday morning, the cryptocurrency exchange Altilly announced a new Hive listing. Woot! [announcement]


This Week in Hive-Powered Games

Hive is home to a growing number of blockchain games. Many of these games are free to play. All you need is a Hive wallet. Here's a quick summary of the Hive game landscape.

CryptoBrewMaster shared some updates on their ads program, as well as the grain fields and hop farms 'buildings'. They also hinted at an upcoming, new 'Brewers house' building. [info]

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 be used to access every app. Here's a quick summary of the Hive app landscape.

Actifit hinted at an exciting new feature coming to the Actifit market. They also celebrated a rise in AFIT token market price. [info]

Dapplr, the stylish Hive mobile app, released an update which allows app users to easily conver HBD to Hive. And, they've improved video viewing experience by changing how video buffering works. [info]
