Introducing PeakLock, Keys Management and More...

in SteemPeak4 years ago

A new version of SteemPeak is now available. Some of the features mentioned below have been available for some days, but with this post I (@asgarth) will try to do a recap of all the latest changes. Keep reading for more details ;)

The new release is now live at


1. Introducing PeakLock

Due to the amount of requests we got from our community we decided to add a new login option. Now it's possible to login with your private posting key on


There is an option to also store your Active key. But in this case you will need to unlock the account with a 'pin code' every time you want to use this key to sign a transaction. Please read the details on the login screen before configuring a new account.

2. Keys Management Page

Finally it's possible to check/change your private keys on SteemPeak. And also update the recovery account associated with your account. The new page can be found under the 'Actions' menu in your own profile page.


A list of what you can do on this new page:

- Validate (identify) a private key
- Show all your keys using the master password
- Change your keys 
- Change recovery account 

3. Burn your share of cross post rewards

We added a new option to burn your part of a cross post rewards. If the user doing the cross post is also the post author this means burning 95% of the total rewards (5% beneficiary is still set to the community owner account)


4. More API nodes are available

There are more API nodes options available:

- (NEW)
- (NEW)

Please consider supporting the projects/witnesses behind those nodes as they allow SteemPeak to be a more decentralized platform.

5. Show community rules when writing a new post

When writing a new post in a community it's now possible to check the rules directly in the Publish page:


6. Some minor updates to make your life easier

  • Using this link will redirect an user to his wallet page
  • Improve rendering of some images in the posts
  • When on an hive-000000 topic page there is now a link to the corresponding community
  • Reduce the number of API calls to get the Steem global parameters

7. Some minor bug fixes and minor improvements

As always some minor fixes and improvements across the website ;)

Support the @steempeak witness/proposals

Now is probably a nice time to remind you of the ways you can support the development of @steempeak.

Recently we submitted a proposal to the Steem Proposals System (SPS). You can review the proposal here and directly on the proposal page.
If you agree to the proposal and you think the points mentioned add value to Steem consider supporting it using the above links or directly with this link.


We also run a witness server to help produce the blocks for the Steem Blockchain. You can vote for our witness so we are in a position to process more of them.

Vote on out profile page: @steempeak
Vote on the witness page:

This works for all witnesses BTW

  • Using Keychain: You just have to click and approve the transaction
  • Using SteemConnect: You'll need access to confirm the transaction with your Active Key at least

I love SteemPeak

I don't care how many times I end up saying this on your posts. The SteemPeak team is crazy good. This update is awesome! Lots of crazy new features I never expected to see!

GG team :^)


I have used steemit sice nearly 3years and I was so used to it that I really never thought about a change to an other frontend.
But when I did so a few weeks ago I was flashed how good steempeak really is. The overview, the build in wallet and all this additional options and stuff...I just love steempeak now!

Great move! The Steemit website is a relic from the 1990’s, Steempeak is the best front end I’ve found! Plus they are always updating and developing.

Love the PeakLock idea, well done

Seems as if it will be a very beneficial update. I do like the way you are all trying to improve and make easier the user experience when accessing the Steem Block Chain. For four years there was virtually no changes to the steemit front end, I have found a lot of very useful tools and short cuts on steempeak. Thank you for making life a bit easier on steem block chain.

Good job guys, managing keys on mobile was terrible until now!

@steempeak, Fantastic updates as per.

Just wondering if there is a way to have post templates specifically for Community Posts so I can have my tags already up for the genre of posts I do?

Already on the TODO list ;)

Somehow I knew... 🙃🙃

Finally someone to show how it had to be done from the beginning! Awesome job, @steempeak, you are now my favorite interface :)

Great work. I am extremely happy to see the ability to set account recovery available, given the danger to the community of leaving Stinc in that role given our present situation. The longer I use Steempeak, the more valuable it becomes, and the happier I am to benefit from your effort.


I've started using steempeak more and like what I see so far..

The more I use, the more I like...
