Hive is a DPOS governance blockchain created by implementing a hard fork of existing Steem code.
Hive 和 STEEM的区别？
Hive is a fork of the Steem blockchain and runs completely independently from the existing chain. All valid accounts on the Steem blockchain will receive an airdrop on Hive.
You will have two accounts: the current one on the Steem, and a new Hive account. The history of these two accounts will be the same, but from the snapshot point onward, the accounts will be independent from one another.
Hive区块链将于美国东部时间3月20日(星期五)上午10点发布。快照和空投将在发布时同时（back to back ）进行。
The Hive blockchain launch will be at 10am EST, Friday, March 20th. The snapshot and airdrop will take place back to back at the time of launch.
All valid STEEM stakeholders will receive a perfectly mirrored balance of their current STEEM holdings in the new HIVE coin. This will include matching amounts of current liquid STEEM, Steem Power, and SBD.
For example: if your Steem account has 10 STEEM, 5 SBD, and 1000 SP, your new Hive account will have 10 HIVE, 5 HBD, and 1000 HP.
You will not need to claim anything. Simply log in with your existing Steem account details and you will have your new HIVE coins in your wallet and be able to start using the blockchain.
The Hive airdrop will only be performed on the current version of the Steem blockchain (as of the date of this post). Any "emergency hardforks" performed prior to the airdrop will not be eligible. Further, any exchange that participates in such a hardfork prior to the airdrop date will null and void the ability to participate in the airdrop for its off-chain balance holding customers.
You can access your Hive account by simply logging in on the Hive Network using your existing Steem account keys. The first frontend available will be https://hive.blog. This is currently pointed at the Steem blockchain, but will be switched to Hive at launch time. Other popular interfaces are completing the switch over to Hive or finishing new products, and will be announcing when they are ready to use!
There are currently over 30 experienced developers contributing to the new ecosystem, alongside many committed community members working on multiple aspects of Hive.
Hive will remain open source.
Testnet will be available after this post is published.
The full codebase will move to a public repo on Thursday, March 19th, prior to launch.
To prevent governance (or funding) attacks, a 30 day delay has been added on crediting vests towards witness and SPS votes. Further governance changes will need to be developed alongside the community.
This delay means that after an account “powers up” or stakes funds, there will be a 30 day delay before those vests can be used towards voting on governance (witnesses) or through voting in the SPS. For all other actions, there is no delay and vests are immediately available.
The only accounts who will not be included in the initial airdrop are those containing the Steemit Inc ninja-mined stake, and those who actively contributed to (and publicly declared support for) the centralization of the Steem Blockchain.
These accounts can still choose to take part in the new chain and their accounts will exist, but they will not be included in the intial airdrop.
看样子，我所期待的合谈梦已经彻底破灭，分家已经不可避免了，不过对普通用户而言，相当于拥有了两份币（STEEM & HIVE），貌似也不错。
