Hive Engagement And Rewards Distribution By Communities

backgroud1.png

Hive provides tools to build communities, tribes, apps, games and economies within them. Two of the powerful features of the Hive Network is its community building and rewarding its participants.

Four months ago I wrote about on the same topic with a list of top 150 communities based on total rewards paid out in Hive/HBD. It also showed amount of posts and comments within those communities since the beginning of the year. You may can read that post here.

While have has community creating feature and rewards distribution for content creators and curators at the core blockchain level, Hive has also many layer two solutions, applications, games, tribes that implement additional token economics to the mix. These layer two token economies add great amount of value to the Hive network itself and its participant.

Among some of the questions/comments I received last time was that Hive rewards alone do not fully represent total rewards distribution in some of the communities/tribes. I didn't want to learn how to calculate that as well. Unfortunately, it was a very busy summer for me and I wasn't able to explore how to gather data pertaining to rewards in hive-engine based tokens.

The lists below only represent the rewards paid out by the Hive blockchain itself and doesn't take into account layer 2 Tribes/Communities tokens.

I wanted to see what has changes since the I created the last list, but also wanted to see year-to-date rewards distribution.
First list will show top 150 communities with posts/comments amount, rewards in HBD distributed in the last four months (May 28th to now). And the second list shows results since the beginning of the year till now.

Hive has paid out $4,646,296 in 2021 to authors and curators.

One change I noticed since the last report is that Proof of Brain community/tribe jumped from rank 51 to 9 in the amount of Hive/HBD rewards distributed within the community. But most noticeable number was the engagement. 120,483 posts/comments generated in Proof of Brain, which makes it the second most engaging community/tribe. Impressive! Congrats POB tribe!
