Hive Survival Guide!

Welcome to the new Hive blockchain! As you may have noticed there are a lot of things that you will need to figure out in order to start posting/using the new blockchain so I have put this post together to possibly help those trying to do so.

Much of what I am including in the 'survival guide' can be found in my original article here: /@jacobpeacock/my-first-hive-post

A French version of this survival guide can be found here: /@laruche/traduction-guide-de-survie-de-hive

It is also worth noting that I will be adding to this survival guide post as I find new things that might be helpful.

If you are an absolute beginner then I recommend reading over the following guide so that you can gain some general understanding about the Hive blockchain: /@remotehorst23/hive-beginner-tutorial

Please keep in mind that the Hive blockchain and all its associated projects are brand new and there will undoubtedly be plenty of things to fix and stuff that does not work correctly. Give it time and please be patient with those developing the blockchain and the applications that run on it!


Cheers and Happy Hiving!
