Hive brand confusion
The name “Hive” has led to some confusion in the technology arena. Some of the “Hives” are below:
- Hive the Web3 blockchain is the topic of this wiki. It is the blockchain that began as a fork of Steem in 2020. This Web3 chain is found online at hive.io or on Twitter at @hiveblocks.
- Hiveblockchain.com calls itself a “publicly traded crypto miner” on their home page. It's a corporation based in Canada that mines cryptocurrencies. On Twitter it is @hiveblockchain. Despite the way it sounds and the fact that it is in cryptocurrency, it has nothing to do with the Web3 Hive (hive.io) blockchain.
- HiveSocial.app is a social media app somewhat like Twitter. When Elon Musk bought Twitter, Hive Social became popular as an alternative. It quickly had growing pains though and suffered a security risk. It has nothing to do with the Web3 Hive (hive.io) blockchain.
- There is a ransomware group that calls itself “Hive”. See the U.S. Justice Department article below to learn about their activities. This ransomware group has nothing to do with the Web3 Hive (hive.io) blockchain.
- An Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform exists simply labeling itself as Hive, located at https://thehive.ai.
With these similar names, it gets confusing. Checking the Hive ecosystem list can help identify those front ends that are associated with the Web3 Hive (hive.io) blockchain.
