The announcement about hive has been massive and been very positively responded to. As of 20th March, HIVE will be officially live and we will be airdropped our skin in the game with an exception to a few selected accounts. A few key aspects have been touched up in HIVE and will supposedly be the ultimate form of steem, powered by the community, guided in decentralisation. Improvements in governance, decentralisation, community, exchanges and so much more has already been teased at. Apparently, a team of over 30 members including devs, finance support systems and designers have been working hard in the past few weeks to make this dream come true.
hive.io is already open to visit and one of the many discussed problems already seems to have been solved - the landing page. It is absolutely welcoming and sends out just enough information for anyone to choose themselves as interested or not.
The most sought after question in the announcement post as well in the original blocktrades post is how the exchanges would react to it and whether the HIVE coin would at all be listed. Within 2 days of the blocktrades post we have already witnessed multiple exchanges putting forward their hands to shake and list the HIVE coins. It is not only a show of supporting the community right after it went under a plethora of scrutiny but also strands proof to the fact that exchanges see and believe in the potential HIVE and its community brings to the cryptoverse both as a social platform and as investment option. The likes of binance and huobi will list hive.
I also came across ionomy.com in the comment section of the announcement post that had promised to list HIVE. As a first time encounter I decided to check them out and after a simple and quick sign up process found them very intersting.
The business of fun, huh?
The exchange looks pretty simple and easy to use. They do have multiple easy to browse tabs that makes the experience splendid. It's my first time around so I do not still understand many of the components, not to mention I'm not very tech savvy.
That being said they will not list HIVE, because they already have and are prepared for the BOOM.
Also, they have other options of trading, some tech stuff and games(deal breaker) along with bounties that leads to githubs to see the bounties.
They also allowed me to choose my username.NOICE!
What are you waiting for?
HIVE is around the corner. Get prepared. Sign up.
