Simple way to promote πŸ’²HIVEπŸ’² on your page πŸ€‘

avatar
(Edited)

I spent some time this weekend looking for a way to get into web3 stuff since it's really not my area, but I knew I couldn't help much, so I focused on a pretty quick example... easy enough for me.

Where it all started?

https://twitter.com/HiveWhat/status/1392449589429653507

@forkyishere was going through the usual manjar of Twitter and suddenly found that HIVEPay could do something more than what he saw. So why not give it a try and show how easy it can be?

Immediately diagonally scrolled through the documentation page (https://hivepay.io/docs) and found the basic example quite easy to go for:

<form action="https://hivepay.io/purchase/" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="merchant" value="blainjones">
    <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Test Item 1">
    <input type="hidden" name="description" value="Test Item Description">
    <input type="hidden" name="notify_url" value="https://blainjones.com/notify/">
    <input type="hidden" name="return_url" value="https://blainjones.com/thankyou/">
    <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="7.00">
    <input type="hidden" name="base_currency" value="USD">
    <input type="hidden" name="merchant_email" value="me@blainjones.com">
    <input type="hidden" name="pay_currency" value="CTP,TOP10T,HBD">
    <input type="hidden" name="merchant_name" value="Blain Jones">
    <input type="hidden" name="cancel_url" value="https://blainjones.com/cancel">
    <input type="hidden" name="merchant_memo" value="Purchase Made By HIVEBUYER">
    <input type="submit" value="Purchase">
</form>

Note for readers: The above "merchant_memo" line didn't exist yet. 😜

My target was to come up with a simple way to use that code somewhere for something as simple as a donation, and then I used something as ridiculous as (https://htmlsave.com/) to generate a page and do a test. It worked! I was already 😊 smilling here.

But I want more!

Ok, it was working but I did not know from who was the donation and I didn't want to go through the trouble of using and deploying an IPN Listener for the notifications (where later on I found to be where you can understand more about who sent the donation).

So, I headed to @hivepay-io Discord server (https://discord.gg/CPS9wd4WuK) to search for some answers. And on the help channel, I quickly went through my idea, and not many seconds after, the chat began with @blainjones. Very helpful and in minutes a solution was forged with my request. 24 hours later here I am writing a post about it to record the experience and let everyone find how easy this process of exploring can be.

@blainjones added the new field "merchant_memo" above which can then show which HIVE account send the transaction.

So I gave it a try with my own version (https://tryme.htmlsave.netπŸ‘‰https://tryme.tiiny.site, valid for 7 days):

Hehe, have hacked the original button to be more indicative of what I wanted. Then, if you click that button (that is being hosted on the https://tryme.htmlsave.net I mentioned above) it redirects to the HIVEPAY service.

Here you can select the currencies you have allowed on the code. Also, where you will set your HIVE account for the donation to be sent. This was my 50 cents! 😝

Then, after selecting one of the available payment options, the current value of the token will be calculated and displayed. I have used STARBITS token for this example (from @risingstargame).

HiveKeyChain request will prompt you and then after confirming you will get a quick link to visualize your broadcast to the blockchain.


https://hiveblocks.com/tx/b28488ded3c3bb6e50b000f25d5d1084f09b10ac

Note

While writing this post I have found a little bug in the detection of how many decimal places each Hive-Engine token has, and currently until fixed (HIVEPAY already informed) any token transaction that ends up (on the time of the calculation) with higher decimal places than what the token has, it will not work with HIVEPAY because your account broadcast will not be processed (it's like you did pay at all). Hence the STARBITS transaction above was actually not processed from my account to @hivepay-io, and I did another one with SIM 😎 (that has 3 decimals) that worked. There is no security problem with this as long the merchant never provides the products until the transaction is verified (aka, that @hivepay-io really received the payment).

Above has been fixed ☝☝☝


(@hivepay-io account)

To complete this example, I have created two posts (pages) with @forkyishere (no payout please), to use them as a success page (the thank you) or in case you would cancel.

And voilΓ‘!

My code!

What I actually used for the example in this post.
If you wanna give it a try πŸ‘‰ https://tryme.htmlsave.net (https://tryme.tiiny.site) will last for 7 days!

<form action="https://hivepay.io/purchase/" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="merchant" value="forkyishere">
    <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="You are donating to Forky!">
    <input type="hidden" name="description" value="Do you like what Forky (@forkyishere) is doing? Show some appreciation by donating 50 cents in form of any token listed bellow! Forky will reply back via the HIVE blockchain!">
    <input type="hidden" name="notify_url" value="https://hive.blog/hive/@forkyishere">
    <input type="hidden" name="return_url" value="https://hive.blog/hive/@forkyishere/thank-you">
    <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="0.5">
    <input type="hidden" name="base_currency" value="USD">
    <input type="hidden" name="merchant_email" value="">
    <input type="hidden" name="pay_currency" value="SWAP.DOGE,SWAP.EOS,SWAP.BTC,SWAP.LTC,LEO,SIM,STARBITS,CTP,PIZZA,LEN,BEER,WEED,BUDS,ASH,HIVE">
    <input type="hidden" name="merchant_name" value="Forky!">
    <input type="hidden" name="merchant_memo" value="Donation from HIVEBUYER">
    <input type="hidden" name="cancel_url" value="https://hive.blog/hive/@forkyishere/that-s-alright-see-you">
    <input type="image" src="https://images.ecency.com/DQmcHQi6zji1adP29WXNpaBAwYn8syzg2JQHLgXC8vL2tXw/donate_hivepay.png" alt="Donate With HivePay">
</form>

And looks like that's it πŸ‘Œ

Learn new things, play blockchain games
and don't forget to have lots of fun!

A simple way to get more selfish and greedy people, and to ruin the Hive blockchain even more.

Why? Everyone on basically any social app has "donations"... and if you look at all those super chat donations on youtube... why people keep giving K's of USD to someone... it's not because of the method... is because of the value of the work they are trying to support/thank. It will always exist, no matter what, anywhere.

What kind of donations are on Hive?
All I see is a bunch of selfish and greedy people.
Almost no one cares about each others posts.
Almost everyone is focus on their own posts.
The real, human comments are rare.
Most of the comments are bot comments.
This platform is very disappointing.

What are you doing to make it better?

I still have some hope in the so called "life changing" effect of the Hive blockchain. This is up to the community, but they usually do not care about my posts. Probably this post will not be any different, and I just wasted writing a more than 200 words blog post.

This will not be positive or bring any value in my opinion... so, why mention it? I mean... you are lately always complaining... and I understand the frustration, but at least every time I try to have a constructive positive conversation with you, you never get it... and keep complaining or having a very "ohh this is not worth it..." attitude, but then you keep posting and being here... and doing challenges... that you already told me in a comment somewhere that is not worth it... I mean... be consistent. You are not making any sense.

Be positive and constructive... negativism does not call anyone to check your posts... And stop trying thinking posting will make you rich or make your life fully sustainable. Bring something useful to the table. We are all struggling with something, but if we keep evidencing what we don't want around... then it's hard to improve.

You are here for a long time... and I would have thought you have learned more. I could complain too... but what's the point? I mean.. I could complain others have 1000$ value posts and I have 2-10$ ones that would fit the same category... but what's the point? You missing the big picture mate... social!!! This is not something that will be fair or just for everyone... like social life is not.

What the most of the users are not doing.
Regularly engaging with others. I am usually in good places on the engagement league.
And I am giving !PIZZA and other tokens for interactions.
Both under my own posts and under other people's posts.
Sometimes I also do giveaways, but usually almost no one cares about it.

Thank you for the support, but if (almost) everything is negative around me both in real life and on the Hive blockchain, then how could I be positive?

I live with multiple disabilities.
I live in financial discrimination in Hungary.
I get a low ($250 USD per month) pension-like income.
I work in a 4 hours per day part time job.
My income still does not reach the minimum wage, which is $550 USD.
I often have to decide between paying bills/rent and buying food.
I cannot even earn back the price of the monthly mobile internet subscription price on Hive, so technically speaking, I do not earn anything on the Hive blockchain, just making my life more difficult. It would be better to cancel my mobile internet subscription, and save that money. Or spend at least a part of it on food.

I have witnessed many people dying because they have terminal diseases and they still are more positive than you, by a mile!!!... I can't be in your shoes, that's true... but believe me, I know worse than what you are saying... and all I was able to find as the best thing I could do, to those people, was to encourage them to find what they like, what makes them smile, what makes them go forward... that's what it matters in life! You will reach later stages in life (hopefully even older than me) and you will look back many times and see what you have done... and life will get shorter... and your value for "stupid" little things, will get higher!

I don't know if you have children, but believe me... it's a field even harder than when we (ourselves) are having a hard time with life. They, are the most challenging concept of life when compared with trying to survive.

Be more positive and try to look about how to build more, and your life will be better. The time you lose complaining, if you use it for building or learning something, your value and happiness will increase gradually. I am not saying this as a financial guarantee... but instead as an educational way to mentally train your mind to be happier. It will work!

I don't want you to feel unhappy or keep complaining... so, here's a little of what I can do to start shifting that mentality... I am generous, but not stupid... so please open your eyes and adapt!

You are right that people in much worse situation are much happier.

Maybe I am unhappy, because I received hate, excluding and bullying during most of my childhood just because I am different. My step-father was a violent, alcohol, lottery and smoke addict family abuser. We escapes from him in around 2000 or 2001. I lost my father in 1997, and I lost my mother in 2017. My brother went on a financial madness since then. He do not care about anything and anyone since then. He promised to visit me, but he did not. I currently do not even know where he lives. I currently live alone in a village. All I have is my Harris's hawk. Currently that is the only happiness in my life. I try to be positive, I try to improve, but the autism spectrum disorder really makes my whole life almost unbearably difficult. The whole life is basically a fight, but I do not like to fight.

Thank you so much for the support. I also look for some support in real life. The biggest one would probably be a second job in the afternoon (or in the night). That way my income would probably reach the mininum wage.

Yes, I consider that there are many selfish ones. but there are also many good people behind the screen ... I say it, because I have had real contact with many and they are so nice! Complaining about whether or not you are voted in will not help you. For my part, I wrote about what I like, I try to improve every day ... and the rest, he left it there.

I don't know what @crrdlx's reaction to your command would be like. Perhaps his @luvshares bot would also accept that LOVE instead of LUV.

I'm out of shareable LUV for today, so I can just give !PIZZA, !ALIVE, and !ENGAGE for you.

I thought I lost my 1,010 staked ALIVE tokens when their bot replied to me. I didn't expect you to use the command without enough Alive Power.

Yes. However, in my experience, having exactly 1,000 staked ALIVE tokens still makes the bot tell me that I don't have enough Alive Power. Therefore, I added 10 more tokens to my stake to be able to successfully use the !ALIVE command. Maybe having exactly 1,001 Alive Power is enough.

I agree. πŸ™‚ In conventional social media platforms, we post, comment, and make direct messages to other people, mostly because we know them and we want to connect with them, not to mention easy ways to donate (minus applicable fees) on some of those platforms. πŸ˜…

This is a great way to be able to pay each other with out involving the banks or other payment processors. Merchant accounts cost a fortune to use and it takes forever to get money back and forth. So glad you're using this on your site and it's working for you. Also you don't have the charge back issues. Another plus!

This is actually pretty amazing! Do you see hive adding in a stable coin into the mix to allow for easier transactions into hive itself and these tribe tokens? I believe that would be a powerful asset to have within hivepay?

Hi there, HIVE already has a "stable" ish coin (its HBD)... it's currently not working very well as a stable coin because of "many" cash flows practices and a now in place automatic cash conversion strategy/process. It has been fluctuating still a lot, so the community might still need to come up with another solution.

On hivepay you can select basically any token on HIVE-Engine, and HIVE or HBD (HIVE-backed Dollars)...

Its configurable on the field:
<input type="hidden" name="pay_currency" value="SWAP.DOGE,SWAP.EOS,SWAP.BTC,SWAP.LTC,LEO,SIM,STARBITS,CTP,PIZZA,LEN,BEER,WEED,BUDS,ASH,HIVE">

You can add/remove as you like.

Thanks for the !ENGAGE 10
