What is Hive?
Hive (short for Hivemind) is an extension of sbds. While sbds is concerned about storing raw blockchain operations, hive focuses on caching the state.
Immediately useful to us is:
- account state
- post state
- followers/following data
- reblogs, blogs and feeds
Hive will also contain data needed for the upcoming communities, but we need not concern ourselves with it at this time.
SteemData hosted Hive DB
SteemData is providing sbds and hive services for free on a completely open basis (no signup required).
You can access the Hive MySQL database at:
Why is some of the data missing?
I've decided to make MySQL a first-class citizen between services offered by SteemData, and as such I've re-deployed sbds and hive on a much more powerful i7/64gb/1tb-ssd server.
Syncing with remote steemd is a bit slow, and it will take a while to have all data.
As the number of SteemData apps and services grew, the website started getting a bit messy. I've re-organized it into logical sections.
