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 access every app. Here's a quick summary of the Hive app landscape.
@ausbitbank's hive.ausbit.dev Hive frontend saw several updates again this week. The site now supports browsing by tag and by community. A comment editor was added, and a post editor is on the way. Dogecoin tipping was also added. [info]
ClickTrackProfit shared a few updates this week. Their payments tool HivePay.io has partnered with ARK to be listed on the MarketSquare decentralized internet portal. Also, the team is close to relaunching the CTPTalk tribe frontend. [info]
Ecency, the Hive front end and mobile app, rolled out some changes this week. The mobile app redesigned the account switching page and the advanced search page. Image loading was also changed to improve user experience.
On the Ecency desktop side, a new Advanced Search page was launched. Wallet passwords can now be changed from the Ecency app. The post editor now supports save snippets. The Italian language is now supported. [info]
Hive-Engine, the Layer 2 smart contracts platform, prepares to launch its decentralized backend on Feb 3rd. Wallets staking WORKERBEE tokens will be able to vote for witnesses. [info] A new front end site is also in the works at Tribaldex.com.
LeoFinance, the finance blogging dapp, has fully deployed a new Lightning DB feature this week. The feature makes the app 10X faster when posting comments. This week's Leo roundtable podcast shared updates on the upcoming ProjectPlank microblogging dapp and LeoInfra V2, among other things.
