😎 HF25 - Let's Get to F**king! 😜
Didn't Miss a Beat
On this glorious chain. Though, I cannot take all the credit. The people over @privex like fellow witnesses @deathwing and mainly, @someguy123, were really workable and on point with their service. Which, allowed me to signal HF25 in the middle of my scheduled blocks! So, that was pimpin' at its finest. Big shout out to dem fellaz ova thar. Props to @blocktrades for keeping an open mind and ear to the community's voices. Also, big ups to @guiltyparties for pushing so hard to start marketing Hive on a grand scale and continuing what we were aiming to do with the original proposal for #hivetips.
The Main Things
All of which can be found in more detail in this post I wrote a few weeks ago. You can also read up on it in this post here from @hiveio. There are links to the technicalities in that one if you so choose to learn the full scope of this fork. Those main three things up there though, are what primarily concerns most of the community and their normal practices.
- You now gain interest on any HBD IN SAVINGS (at the time of this post, it is a 7% yearly APR) - really love this part of the fork as I believe it will attract new users and investors once the word is out and provides an incentive to hodl our tokens + they don't have to vote on anything!
- There is a 12 month expiration on governance action (witness voting, proxies and proposals) - this has finally come to fruition after seeing it be talked about for literally years and hopefully will improve the community's interaction and participation in our blockchain.
- There is now a 24 hour window for equal curation for everyone (removing the mad-rush 5 minute window) - this is huge as people will no longer 'regret' missing a great post and giving it the full attention it deserves while at the same time - getting the most out of your reward for honoring a creator's work and - will also breathe new life in to curation trails.
Ya! You know how I do. Mad Hatter illogical magic and all. A quiet whisper here, a little nudge there, we're getting the word out. You remember the run for StakingRewards.com? We ultimately did get listed on there (well done @guiltyparties) and I personally think that site is going to be a go to for investors moving forward. It's about the returns and seeing as to how we just added a very competitive feature in our wallets? Ya. Check it out.
There are some ways you can help out right now - on top of following @traciyork, @hiveio, @nathanmars or @hiro-hive over on Twitter. In addition to tinkering on IG following hiveblocks, The Crypto Pimp, @saffisara or @wesphilbin. You can check out Ranker! @shadowspub made a post you can find here and we are also in the running over on Crypto Awards for blockchain technology. Stop over there and support it!
It's going outside of the Hive ecosystem itself, that gets people to notice Hive. Sure, they might organically stumble across some woopass article you wrote on financial insights or your sweet movie review, but to really get us seen? That will take putting us in plain sight. Let's see more bumper stickers and t-shirts and hats and coins! I'm waiting to see a Hive silver round or bar from the #silvergoldstackers. A bar would be killer, I'd probably buy at least 20 of them. Point is, people aren't going to know if you don't talk about it so, go talk about it 😉
Thank you to all my loyal supporters!!! Mad props to all the people that played around on the testnet to work out the kinks prior to dropping HF25. The official date for the fork is tomorrow and I have made a few slight changes to my own witness, primarily the interest rate. I bumped it up from 2.5% to 7.5% as promised. I will be working on the @weedcash.network witness later this evening and should have that primed and ready by tomorrow for the switch. REMEMBER TO BE YOU! I always am, even when I'm just forking around.

Great work! And thanks for the shout-out! Keep PIMPin', buddy!
Was some killer old pieces man. I remember one of those old shutter ones with the leather folds my grandma had when I was growing up.
I love'em. I really do. The ones I really want are not cheap, by any stretch (Like this one - fuck ), but I suppose it's a goal.
That thing is over 100 years old! Would be sweet in a collection.

Hello @enginewitty. I'd like to thank you for supporting my post. You are an example of the complete opposite of the witness in my poem who stood by and did nothing all the while knowing destruction was foretold.
Awesome job you, other witnesses, and all mentioned in your post above perform for the betterment of Hive. I know I appreciate it.
Most welcome, it was sad, but poetically, I loved it 😎🤗
Loved reading through your/our progress. You have a great attitude and solid energy man.
Gracias mi amigo! That is a genuine compliment and I will try to continue to reflect that for you bro.
Particularly it is not my taste to praise people, but those who deserve recognition for their work, it is certainly a pleasure to do so.
Since I arrived at the platform, your companionship has been exceptional, together in our family we have experienced pleasant and good moments.
The seriousness that you have, (even when the princess does your nails), at the time of working is of unparalleled human warmth, and the part of familiarity, is the best.
I have been inviting more friends to support a little, and thus continue to make this a great family, and a great team.
The more the merrier hombre! Kind words from a kind soul, thank you. Love having you around the fam too as it extends hands to all parts of the globe. Everyone is welcome here and I am happy you feel you have a place with us! 😎🤗
Gracias por todo lo que haces amigo, y gracias por la mención...
Historical story even! And, who doesn't love pirates?? ☠️
Appreciate the shout-out brother...
Sure don't expect other's to follow me on those other Social Media sites; I just share stuff from HIVE usually, that I feel should get more attention.
Or blab about my #thoughtfuldailypost, or #hivechat... maybe #getreel, because #HiveFixesThis lol.
All kidding aside, appreciate everything you do for the Blockchain brother...

We've been working hard to get HF25 rolled out across our VPS nodes as fast as we could, as well as providing constant technical support over the past few days to some of our customers who have dedicated servers to help them upgrade by hand. 😓
Not to mention updating our
shared_memory.bin, and native snapshot
privexsnapover on our Privex File Servers (currently rolled out to
se1.files.privex.io- and slowly replicating to DE1 + FIN1, though

Wicked awesome! You all have never failed to uphold some of the highest standards and customer service of any company I've used for anything.
I know you voiced a couple of concerns and it worked
For that I appreciate you and say thank you
Yes! Thank you sweets. Feels good when I can feel your hugs thousands of miles away.

This sums everything up very nicely. Thanks for the summery and all those links! Fork it!!! 😁
Went very smoothly! Don't think there were any major hang ups once it was initiated.
Not at all. I was really quite thrilled with how seamless it appeared from a user standpoint. I didn't notice a thing so far. Thanks for you help with it all! I appreciate all of the witnesses working behind the scenes 😁
There were a few hiccups when people first started signaling HF25 early last week, like comments and bots not responding well, but that is all I know of and was easily remedied.
Thank you for mention and giving the summary of what happened on HF25. I strongly believe that Hive needs to be marketed, but first and foremost the chain needs to be scalable. I want say that I am really grateful to have the great witnesses like @blocktrades and many more. I salute all your hard works, we can say that we never go wrong when we choose to be on Hive than Steem. Cheers!
Sure thing bud! Appreciate all the effort you and several others are putting in to get Hive seen out there.
