Ragnarok and Larynx Claim Drops Demonstrate Another Magical Power of Hive
Both Speak Network and Ragnarok Game announced their intentions to claim drop their respective tokens and NFTs to Hive hodlers a few months ago. Speak Network claim drops of LARYNX tokens started a month ago and will last year, with every month Hive holder can claim their tokens. Time has come for Ragnarok Game to activate claim drops as well. While game itself is still under development and not ready to be launched, they are allowing Hive hodlers to claim tokens named Duat, 1 Duat for each Hive. At a later time we will be able to use these tokens to claim NFTs for the game.
Both projects have generated a lot of energy and enthusiasm among Hive community members. Not only because of the claim drops. Airdrops and claimdrops are always welcome and nice. But the main reason many are really excited about these to projects is what they are building. These aren't the first projects on Hive that have offered airdrops/calimdrops to the community, and I am guessing will not be the last ones either. It is important to highlight though what they are doing is different, and will probably have lasting effects on the network years to come.
What Speak Network is building is extremely important and usefull. It is not just building an app that will allow video sharing. It is building an entire ecosystem that many social platforms can benefit from. It is building a system that will provide infrastructure to build such apps and connect the existing ones to the network. It is building a self-sustaining economy to make this happen. Very ambition vision, if/when complete will be big. And all of this is being built on top of Hive network. Networks upon networks. Amazing!
Similarly, if I understand correctly, Ragnarok is not just building a game. The game sound super interesting by the way. Once this game is built, launched and live, it will pave the way or provide blueprint for many other games to be launched in a similar fashion, using same technology and know-how. So yes, it is a unique game on its own. From what I have read and heard so far, I can't wait to try playing it. But the bigger goal is continue building, and encourage others to build such games learning from their experiences of making this first one.
We already know that Hive is a great blockchain for building apps, tools, games, and communities. What Speak Network and Ragnarok is demonstrating is not only that Hive has great tools and features for building apps and networks, but doing so in a truly decentralized fashion. By distributing initial token claims to the Hive network participants, this will guarantee decentralized start of such projects. By doing so, these projects are utilizing already decentralized nature of Hive, enlisting all stakeholders to participate in these projects. Making this a claimdrop instead of airdrop is a great as well. Because this will require to show active participation or interest in participating in these projects and economies.
Of course, starting projects in this fashion is not a must on Hive. Hive network itself is decentralized. Building centralized apps, game, communities is welcome as well. Any individual, entity, or groups are welcome to turn their ideas into reality and choose whichever tokenomics suits best. Having an instant decentralization of what is being built is only one of the great features Hive can also provide. Speak Network and Ragnarok have demonstrated this well.
This also reminds us how valuable Hive is as a network and as an investment. Hive investors almost automatically increase their assets portfolio without doing much. They get to have stakes in new ventures, gaining all the rewards if there are any, without taking the risks the project developers take on. All the credit, praise and gratitude goes to Speak Network & Ragnarok builders. I am rooting for their success and achieving all the goals they have set. They are the pioneers that are showing what can be done on Hive. Those who will come afterwards will have blueprints to follow that will make their building journey easier and they too hopefully be successful.
This does seem like just the beginning. As many more discover these magical features of Hive, they too may choose to utilize such roadmaps, and as these numbers grow, the equities of Hive stakeholder will grow as well. Isn't this truly the Web-3 way?
While I greatly appreciate Speak Network and Ragnarok choosing to go claimdrop route for Hive hodlers, this is not the only way. Many have been trying other kinds of tokenomics already. They are also valuable to the network and the community. One answer or one solution doesn't solve everything. I am grateful for all other efforts in building on Hive as well. They too provide great deal of benefits to Hive hodlers.
I have claimed my Duats already. Can't wait until the game is complete and launched. It may take a while, but it sounds like they have been doing a lot of progress in the development. Edicted is already claiming to become the top player of the game. We shall see. :)
