One of the funny things I discovered on Hive are the, what I call; “Free Tipping Tokens”.
When you hold or stake enough of these tokens you can send out small amounts of these tokens to others.
This is mostly done as a form of appreciation for an author and it can be performed by typing in commands in the comments.
I was fascinated by these tokens so I investigated which ones I already received and tried to figure out how they actually work.
This blog contains a summary of my research.
If you have some additions, please let me know in the comments and I'll add them.
The beer token was one of the first free tokens I received on the Hive blockchain. And I love free beers :D
The token issuer is @detlev, admin from the Beer community.
When you have 24 staked BEER tokens you can tip 0.1 BEER free of charge to someone. You can do this by typing !BEER in a comment.
The recipient will see the following message in their comments.
For 240 staked BEER you can call 10 times a day.
When you don’t like beer you can also give away Wine.
I just recently spotted this token. It’s ICO launch was about a month ago, but I already received some wine.
The issues of the coin is @wine-token
Just like the beer token you can donate wine with a command in the comments; !WINE this time.
For 25 staked wine you can call !WINE once a day. For 75 staked you can donate it twice a day and so on.
Engage is a token by @abh12345 and distributed by @misterengagement
With the engagement token you can show your appreciation to people that engage on your posts.
You need at least 1001 ENGAGE tokens to use the !ENGAGE command!
When using the !ENGAGE command you can add the amount of engagement tokens to the command.
I think I need to engage more because I’m far from the necessary 1001 engagement tokens yet.
This was another token I recently discovered. This token is issued by @crrdlx and distributed by @luvshares
LUVshares has the goal of spreading love around the Hive blockchain.
You need to have at least 5 LUV in your wallet to send up to 3 LUV per day. You can donate LUV by typing !LUV in a comment.
!LUV 1 will give one. !LUV 2 will give 2. If you don’t add a number you will donate 3 LUV.
I recently received my first LUV tokens, but I still need two more to be able to spread the LUV myself.
I remember receiving tokens from @investintefutur in the past, but I cannot seem to find any VOIN tokens in my wallet.
I do know you can donate by calling !invest_vote in a comment, but don’t know the prerequisites for donating.
Maybe someone can explain how these work...
More tipping tokens?
These are the tipping tokens I came across on the Hive blockchain.
I think these are the most popular, but maybe there are more. If you have some other tipping tokens, please let me know in the comments.
I'm crypto and security enthousiast with a passion for photography that likes to play games.
