Welcome to the Hive blockchain!
As you may have noticed there are a lot of things that you will need to figure out in order to start using the blockchain so with that in mind I have put this Hive Survival Guide together to possibly help those trying to navigate how to do so.
It is worth noting that I will be updating this Survival Guide with the release of newer versions as I find new things that might be helpful and the platform continues to develop.
If you think that something should be included in this guide please leave a link to it in the comments of this post so that I can review it for addition in the next version.
