Blocktivity: Hive Passes Tron #4 In Activity

Those who follow what is taking place on Hive know the situation is changing. Each day we discuss some of the new things that are going to be rolled out. At the same time, we get updates about the advancement of different applications and games.

While Hive is not a blockchain that gets a lot of hype or exposure, it is one that is steadily moving ahead. Instead of mass marketing or a charismatic personality to garner attention, Hive just keeps plugging along on the development front.

In short, people on Hive just keep churning out code.

Over the long-term, this is what is going to propel the top blockchains. Market activity can only last so long. Many of the top ranked projects are there simply due to potential. That certainly is not a problem if it comes to fruition. However, we know that expectations often go unmet.

Hive on the other hand is not a marketing machine. While this could be a negative in the short-term, it will not matter over time. As development keeps occurring, people cannot help but to find out what is taking place.

Hive #4 On Blocktivity

An interesting thing happen according to Blocktivity. For those who do not know, this is a site that monitors the daily activity on different blockchains. While there is some debate about the accuracy, over time it does appear to capture different trends with specific projects.

Those on Hive know the situation with Justin Sun. While there are still the Steem/Hive comparisons, it is ironic that Hive surpassed Sun's prized child, Tron.

According to the latest from Blocktivity, Hive is now ahead of Tron in transactions over the last day.

In the end, this is nothing more than a fun fact. The transactions can move up or down a great deal in a short period of time. Nevertheless, it is a reflection of what we know is taking place on Hive. Sure, a lot of it stems from @splinterlands, which saw a major upturn in sign ups and players over the last few months.

This is helping to feed into the overall transactions in spite of the fact they changed how things are posted, reducing the amount of data sent to the blockchain.

At the moment, Splinterlands is carrying the bulk of the load. However, we should see some other projects emerging in the next 4-6 months that will aid in this endeavor.

Gaming Taking Over

There is little doubt how important gaming is becoming to blockchains. The #Play-2-Earn concept is really taking off. Here again, we see Splinterlands at the center of the action.

Blockchain Gaming and DappRadar do a monthly report about the state of the blockchain gaming industry. It is no surprise that Splinterlands keeps capturing attention.

To start, they noticed the growth:

Obviously, the growth in wallet usage coincided with a massive leap in activity. This mirrors what Blocktivity was telling us.

As we can see, in August, the gaming transaction on Hive are second to Wax. It even surpassed BSC which got very popular earlier this year.

Another thing we notice is the jump, month-over-month. This also is no surprise since we noticed the number of sign up on a daily basis as well as the number of people getting starter packs. The game is really taking off.

Blockchain gaming is a vital aspect of what is taking place within this industry. Many consider it the path to mass adoption. A case could be made, at least by the wallet usage, that it is starting to take over.

It is evident that gaming surpassed DeFi as the top use case. What is interesting is that NFTs account for a small percentage at the moment. This is such since NFTs and gaming are going to be tied together in many ways. Therefore, we can expect the wallets transacting in NFTs will explode as that feature is implemented in more games.

More Than Just Blogging

The original focus, going back to the genesis block, was on blogging. This was the main area of concentration for a number of years. While content creation is still a vital part of the Hive ecosystem, we can see from the numbers how we are moving far beyond it.

Ultimately, the most popular blockchains are going to be those which offer a wide variety of applications to use. In the end, people will not really care what chain they are on. What users focus upon is the experience they have. If they find something they like, what else is offered in the same area?

By this, we should focus upon the full compliment. We are starting to see DeFi become a larger part of the ecosystem. As people get rewards, either through gaming, blogging, or whatever, they will want to increase their holdings. DeFi is a way this is done. As more applications on Hive implement this capability, people will find their returns increasing at an even greater pace.

Slowly, Hive is moving up the ranks. We are witnessing the building of an ecosystem that is from the ground up. There are no shortcuts being taken and much is flying under the radar. However, there are signs that some things are starting to break out.

For the moment, Hive surpassed Sun's Tron in at least one category. It might not be groundbreaking but it does show how a community that simply gets busy can make a major difference.

It is incredible to see the impact that a single game is having on the Hive network. If in the next few months this occurs with a couple more applications, do you think we could have saturation problems? Oh is it something really hard to see?

Maybe the new applications will not come in the next few months, but we certainly need more applications, because blogging on the Hive blockchain is a failed thing for most people. Applications are essential, if the Hive blockchain wants mass adoption.

I give you some !PIZZA.

I am not sure what you mean by saturation. There is plenty of room in terms of bandwidth and scaling.

In terms of the potential user market, there are 5 billion on the Internet, I think we have room to go there also.

So much going on. @tipu curate !invest_vote !PIZZA and some !PUREWATER and !FRESHAIR again.

I like how Hive, whilst proof of stake, comes from the genesis idea of DeFi. I just shared a big quote by Satoshi at https://noise.cash/post/l3j5j7rz that I took from the latest, episode #28, of the https://bitcoincashpodcast.com

And while Hive is proof of stake mixed with blogging, I love how the blockchain itself includes the means to find information about it. I wished some one showed me some link resource that explained the Wax ecosystem. I've seen it in action with multiple games now, yet do not understand it. As on the other hand the Hive Resource credits and voting mechanisms are an open book to me for a long time. Hive on!

The hive based game EXODE (space colonisation or battling) hopefully becomes another big hit. Marketing is key but they are working on it.

Maybe one with many folowers can help them ?

I am optimistic about that game. It is really well done. A lot of development still left to go from what I understand.

But it has amazing potential to be a big hit, perhaps by late 2022.

Truth is, we all knew Tron had little or no users interacting with the chain and all those huge numbers displayed by Sun on twitter were actually fake. It's good to see hive doing the numbers.

That is no small feat that Hive is just below WAX. There is a ton of awesome gaming stuff going on over there. New games coming out pretty much every day and lots of people earning a lot of money just to play. It is awesome.

That is all true. What will be interesting is to see how long until we start to see the money increase. What I mean is we have a lot of transactions but not a ton of large ones.

Will we start to see the total amount of money moved increase over time?

The year is yet to come to an end but I feel it's been a success 2021 for Hive in its second year so much have evolved from a community that is dedicated to one thing and one thing alone, churn out codes and get the community using the applications.

Thanks to Splinterlands and it's entire team.

We should be expecting more communities to replicate what Splinterlands have managed to pull off and then we will be seeing more of Hive topping the charts.

We just getting started and it's a blessing to be part of this priceless community.

We still have 3 months until the end of 2021. Too early to write the year off yet. Still more stuff rolling out.

Plus we are only 18 months into Hive. This could seriously grow by the end of our second year as a chain.

A lot of things in the works.

In the end, people will not really care what chain they are on. What users focus upon is the experience they have.

AGREED! My own HIVE experience has been fantastic! Playing Splinterlands, tweeting...er..buzzing on D.Buzz, engaging in communities like Cinnamon Cup Coffee https://hive.blog/trending/hive-152524 or Wednesday Walk https://hive.blog/trending/hive-155530, getting to learn Hive and the people in this space has been all consuming in the best way possible. The fact I am earning while playing and learning is an amazing bonus.

I couldn't imagine seeing Hive any lower. It deserves to be on top, maybe in a few months or years we will achieve that feat to.

Splinterlands is the #1 blockchain game and in fact it is right now the #1 DApps amongst all others on DAppradar. That's crazy and it has brought a lot of attention to Hive. 🚀🚀

It seems like our record activity is still quite low compared to the rest of the chains. So I would say we definitely need to keep growing otherwise we can be pushed back down at any point in time. With Project Blank, speak network and others, I don't think the volume of transactions will be decreasing that much though.

I really found this article really, informative and eye opening, I don't know of blocktivity and DappRadar before.

I see hive going surpassing $1, in year's to come, because to hive is highly underated for the now. I hope that changes soon because it is supposed to be worth more than most coins that don't have real life usage.

Splinterlands was also the #1 dapp crypto-wide on dappradar aggroed mentioned yesterday:

#2 now, a little behind PancakeSwap. Strong competition there for #1, but I believe Splinterlands will soon secure that spot.

This is a pretty good tool to see the future of use-case chains. You cannot go wrong with all of the 'undervalued' chains that are workhorses. Hive and Wax are perfect examples of that. Telos as well.

All of this is happening after @splinterlands took most of their transactions off chain to scale better with the new flood of users! We might have made it to #2 spot if it wasn't for these decisions. It won't be too long before we make it there either. I'm seeing 321,516 users during the last 24 hours according to https://hivedapps.com The growth is still there!

Amazing news as Tron and Hive are both in my core 3 holdings along with BitcoinCash. Let the big coins bubble and burst while Micro Coins grow with each artificially inflated speculator sell-off.
