Hive Survival Guide Sixth Edition!

in hive •  2 months ago  (edited)

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.

If you want a good news feed for the Hive blockchain then I highly suggest subscribing to the Chain News Badge here:
https://peakd.com/b/badge-321321

If you need a history lesson on why there is a Hive blockchain then the following article provides a good summation of events:
https://cointelegraph.com/news/steem-community-resists-takeover-hard-fork-launches-hive-network

If you already have a Steem blockchain account and just want a quick crash course on how to login into Hive with your Steem credentials then read this:
I Have A Steemit Account: How Do I Switch to Hive?

A simple beginners guide for Hive can be found here:
https://peakd.com/hivemarketing/@hivepeople/hive-for-noobs

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:
https://peakd.com/hive/@remotehorst23/hive-beginner-tutorial

There is also some really good information about Hive in the following two articles:

Hive Beginners Tips is a Community dedicated to helping new users:
https://peakd.com/created/hive-198524

Beginner's Guide 11 Fatal Hive Mistakes To Avoid:
https://peakd.com/hive-174578/@sidwrites/11-hive-mistakes

I recommend keeping an eye on the Unofficial Hive Beginners FAQ as it gets updated with information. It is still a work in progress but looks promising.

A nice article about the use of Tags on Hive can be found here:

That is all for now!

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