THINGS ARE BUZZING - We want your input (#HIVE #REBRANDING)


It's no secret we have wanted to re-brand... For a while now.
Myself (@jarvie) and @asgarth have thought about it for well over a year.

questions_cover.png

I will share why we've wanted to rebrand and how the @hiveio news impacts this... but most of all we'd like to hear our users' thoughts on recent happenings.


But first...

WHAT IS THE AIM OF OUR PROJECT...

The aim of our site/s is to be a place for content creators to share their work and to provide those users with lots of amazing features... including and in particular decentralized feature-sets.

The entry point for your decentralized world

We are working towards creating a place for full time content creators. Where users with large followings (sometimes millions) will want to bring their audience. We still have more features to come before we start bringing those types in. However in preparation we knew we'd want to have a name that works for a larger audience.


RE: DECENTRALIZATION

We want to operate in as much of decentralized environment as possible. That isn't just an economic thing... it relates to developers and extends to governance of course.

We as a community don't seem to have a confident understanding of what @justinsunsteemit has in mind with his heavily centralized access to tens of millions of tokens. Or what his view is on decentralization and blockchain operating principles.
p.s. Thanks @theycallmedan for the initiative to get users to write about: "What decentralization means to me"... We would have loved to see @justinsunsteemit respond to that post. But love seeing the rest of you write your own posts.

To me/us decentralization has a lot to do with dependencies and getting rid of dependencies that make our platform or YOUR experience too... well... "dependent" on the actions of others. It seems there is always impact by others but what decentralization seeks for is to limit it as best as it can. In many areas: like developers, decision makers, voters, economics and much more.

MORE BLOCKCHAIN INTEGRATION

Let's put it this way even if @hiveio hadn't been announced we would still be re-branding. Not just for the reasons above but because we are going to work with many chains.

You may be happy to know we have plans to support feature sets from other chains and even find ways to make other crypto communities excited about our platform.

FEATURES LIKE:
Tipping in many currencies, Connecting accounts, App communities, Patreon Like features, Token information on our wallet page for other tokens... just to name a few things.


"STEEM" (The Name) DOESN'T TEST WELL

"Steem" has always been hard word for non-steem fans. I feel like I've said this more than a few times to friends: "Steem with two EEs and not the gaming platform" (repeated a hundred times). A tiny fraction of our future user-base will know what Steem is (Or what Hive is) and so the URL will be even more confusing the more non blockchain users we bring to the site.

ENTER HIVE

We are not going to make a site called "HivePeak.com" but we are indeed planning on Supporting the Hive chain. (Check our list of name finalists)

It is true, we have made assumptions... we assumed our users would want to use an interface based on Hive. So we have been proceeding on that. BUT... tell us... do you want this?

Let's take it a step back and have an up front question: Do you want an interface that operates on Hive?

How do you feel about Hive?
So far there have been many requests of us since the announcement yesterday. But give us your honest desire. We will do our best to make sure your comment is respected so that you can feel comfortable giving it on this particular post. We have seen that most of the app operators that we work with are moving and are happy to support our present needs for 3rd party integrations. (Yes we still have dependencies)
We are not even fully certain if staying on Steem will even be an option if we're being honest with you, you'll see below that there are certain things we need.

Getting a Hive based site up and running presents a lot of challenges specially in a short period of time (Friday) but we are focused and lots of other developers and projects are working round the clock to get systems running in time for us.

Just between us expect things to be a "Work in Progress" even by Friday.

WHAT WE NEED

  • We depend on a good API (One that also runs hivemind)
  • We have our own signing method with PeakLock however many of you would feel more comfortable with Keychain or SteemConnect... so those need to happen.
  • Users who have used SteemPeak to upload pictures shouldn't be effected but how will users who used Steemit in the past be impacted with images? The URLs should still work ... but for how long?

There are people working on all these issues and more.

So the focus will be getting things running and we know it will get completed bit by bit... there will be things we miss but you know us... you know that you can give us some feedback and we'll get to those things ASAP.

PEAKMONSTERS?

Another PeakProject is @peakmonsters... basically that has to run on whatever chain that @splinterlands decides. No decision making from us on that... we will go where they go and when they go.


WHAT HAPPENS TO STEEMPEAK.COM?

https://steempeak.com/ the URL will NOT run HIVE. It just doesn't make sense to run a site called STEEMpeak on a chain called HIVE.

Yes... We will continue to operate SteemPeak.com
Now the question for you all is "WILL YOU USE STEEMPEAK.COM?"
And if so why? Also will there be enough 3rd party support to keep it running. And for how long do you need access... we recognize all of our users are about to be holders of STEEM tokens and HIVE tokens and need a wallet interface for both.

If there isn't high demand or a lack of backend support for SteemPeak.com then we will of course re-evaluate. Again feel free to share your opinions and we'll make this post a place you won't get attacked in the comments for saying you want to continue to use steem.

NAME CHOICES

We have asked our users on DISCORD for name suggestions for about 13 days. I feel like it has prepared them for what's coming and maybe has been fun for them to make suggestions. We expressed our interest in retaining PEAK in our name but we haven't been tied to it... however we have several great options for PEAK.

We have also done a bunch of polling OUTSIDE of Steem users.
We feel like we have a solid name option that we're proceeding with.
BUT... again we don't want to assume to much so there's still the chance of changing and we'd like your feedback. But we think there is likely to be a pretty good consensus.
... so let us know which TWO options you'd go with and we'll see.

Here's what our poll looked like that we've done.

  • Peaksocial.com
  • Dpeak.io
  • Peak.network
  • Peakd.com
  • Peakapy.com
  • Steempeak.com
  • OTHER

SO MUCH MORE TO COME FOR PEAK PROJECTS

We are looking forward to the time when we start our marketing programs and focus on full time content creators and their users.
However, We want our present users to be happy about this switch as well.

Let us know... and feel confident that just like the last 2 years of never ending and totally consistent Updates we have so much up our sleeves you should be very excited about. All that and we haven't even started our marketing plans. (Prove retention first)


WITNESS?

This is where we'd normally say we're interested in your witness vote. We're not entirely sure how that will all shake out... we aren't even producing that many blocks on Steem anymore (for probably obvious reasons) so that is likely to switch to HIVE ... would you support us there?

Technically speaking we have TWO servers that run a witness (one is a backup even though we have rarely missed blocks in all our history) ... we are prepping the main server to make the switch and can worry about the other one later (there's plenty of other things that need to be done in the meantime) ... Thoughts from those that support our witness? Or maybe we're calling it "Hive Managers" or just "Block Producers" and we can leave weird words like "witness" behind?


YOUR QUESTION RECAP?

  • What chain do you prefer us to operate on?
  • What do you like about Hive?
  • If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.
  • What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?
  • What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
  • Any concerns you're having?

In the end we still have a bunch more features before we begin our large marketing push... by that time we hope that things will be much clearer as to what system will provide us with the most decentralized option for content posting. We need stability, a thriving App ecosystem, ease of use for development and our users and decentralization.

If I were to choose a name from the list, I would go with #1 peak.network, #2 peaksocial.com. Dapps Dnames are silly IMHO.

Anyway, great work as always. Looking forward to the migration.

I'm all in with Hive. One thing I wish though is not to have an upvote button but just a tip button seeing that Taxation is Theft. Not sure I'd that's possible but that's My two cents. Hive Out....

I am not a fan of taxes. So, yeah, anything that might minimize taxes. And I like tipping. I would prefer both, the ability to tip or upvote. But I guess it partly comes down to whether or not there could be multiple reward pools for upvoting in order to allow for some competition and everything within the money aspect of it all.

  • Hive for sure.
  • I hope it proves to be the better option for an independent, freedom-loving and sustainable community. Anyways, I am sure that Steemit Inc is not walking the right path, hence Hive is the choice of mine.
  • In my point of view, SteemPeak is the most advanced and user-friendly front end. However, it is just my pick.
  • It could be HivePeak, make the rebranding as simple as you can.
  • Yet again, Hive it is.
  • Splitting the community is not the best thing to do. Using two forks neither as the content should be unique and created for the chain. I wish we moved as a community, took the best of current Steem and built up our hives ;)

I would love steempeak to support hive, I myself will be using hive over steem.
What I like about hive is it's potential to fix the issue with steem sooner rather than later, this deadlock with justin could last forever in which no development can be done.
I like peak.network and peaksocial.com
I also would support your witness on hive as well.

Hi,

I'm not probably answering in the correct way to all of this, but I'm glad you're going to be on Hive. I'm hoping Hive can be the good new beginning, as Justin Sun's actions on Steem didn't do good. I'm hoping we can have similar and even better community on Hive, but far more decentralized that Steem actually ever was!

I have been using Steempeak (at least most of the time) for a good while now and I've been really happy with it. Anyone else would need to do something truly amazing to be better than you guys are. Steempeak has had many features which have made Steem much better to use and you've managed to fix many things that I didn't even realize to be wrong.

My choices for the URLs would be Peakd.com and Peaksocial.com, maybe something other too but I have no idea what it could be.

I could see you witnessing on Hive, you could probably run a witness on Steem too just if Justin Sun were to withdraw sockpuppet accounts, but changes can always be made. Right?

I'm mostly concerned about your re-branding. Because at worst, who knows if you'll go with something like dpeaksocialpeak.networkd 😉

My pick for a name is would have been peak.net but as it's not available I vote for peak.network
If all goes to plan I will migrate to Hive - I've long been hoping Steemit could restart.
Something I'm wondering - any predictions on what will happen to the value of Steem and Hive tokens?

18.03.2020 20:31

why use the word peak? I don't get it. It's not catchy either.
you need to have the word "hive" in it, that's a no brainer.
Hive is the cool idea, the people vs. tryrants, and please be smart about this. Hive should be part of the name or else you lose the game, the problem of "no consistent branding"

19.03.2020 19:05

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

I will probably prefer hive, but see no reason to commit to only using one chain or the other at this time

What do you like about Hive?

I like the plan to get rid of the stinc stake. Been a cloud of uncertainty for far too long. I also like the resilience expected from the 30day lag on witness votes

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why

It's the best interface for browsing steem. If I'm going to browse steem, it will be on SteemPeak

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

Peaksocial.com seems to fit best with your vision and is easy to remember
Peakapy.com is strange. I'm not sure how to pronounce it, but I like it

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

If you can only support one, I'd prefer HIVE. Not gonna get bent out of shape if you run a steem witness

Any concerns you're having?

Nah

Thank you for all your work!

I think that having multi-chain operation is probably the easiest solution, with options for choosing where things post (e.g. a dialog box) before publication.

Hive looks really great, and I'm excited to see the decentralization brought closer to fruition with some honest safeguards. Still not perfect, but it's a great step better than Steem with its known flaws.

I could see staying on Steempeak, but honestly I wouldn't prefer it over a new thing.

My two URL choices that seem obvious: peak.network has great appeal across the board, with anyone getting exactly what the point of the idea is. dpeak.io is also interesting, though I think it could be offputting to people who don't understand the ecosystem already.

I like the idea of Steem keeping its principled witnesses, but I don't think that's possible for a number of reasons. If you switch to Hive, I'll go with y'all.

18.03.2020 18:49

You are doing really great work and for all my needs is also my preferred interface, and I think that you should work on both chains, and since you stated that your goal is to work on even more chains I also think that this would be the optimal first step to make that work, it's now that you can create the tools necessary to work on many chains with the same interface, and since you also have the best knowledge about both Steem and the coming Hive it's the easiest to start with.

I also run a project called @thisisawesome which basically is dependent on the features that your interface provides, using another interface can be done but that will more or less double the time I have to spend on it.

When it comes to the name, and keeping in mind that it should be chain neutral, I think it would be great to focus on the users, so my suggestion is,

PeakMe.com

If it's available of course.

I have been unable to upload photos to Steempeak for my posts. It always gives me "network error." I hope this issue would be resolved if you'd be moving to Hive, as I like using your front end.

As for the name, I like Dpeak.io or Peakd.com. 😊😊

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

What do you like about Hive?
Well, it's not live yet but gives hope to be decentralized and has no ninja stakes

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.
Do you mean the URL? That doesn't matter to me. It's the frontend I love and I would like to see on the hivechain! Call it idontgiveafuck.io - I don't care as long as I can use the interface.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?
Well, I'm really not good at this (see above). You need to ask more creative people.

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
hivechain

Any concerns you're having?
The only concern I have is that I'm on hive over two days without your frontend!

STEEM HIVE ON!!!

As a gaming content creator Steem and Steam where always tripping people up. So I’m glad there would have been a name change at some point regardless of hive happening or not.

Tipping in many currencies, Connecting accounts, App communities, Patreon Like features, Token information on our wallet page for other tokens... just to name a few things.

Those are some powerful features you are looking to add. Really glad I’ve been using Steempeak for some time now. I’ve loved what you guys have and continue to do.

images?
That is quite the concern since so many of us Used Steemit for quite a long time. Even long after we started using other front ends. Most assumed Steemit would be around forever and therefore they were the safest option to upload images to for their content.

I just hope everyone has made really good backups of their content. While I understand many don’t view old content as having value. I myself have put a lot of time and effort into things with the thought my old content is and will be useful.

It could end up being a lot of work for many if they have to go in and replace all there old image URLS with new ones.

WILL YOU USE STEEMPEAK

While short term it sounds like many will post on both blockchains. I think it will really come down to which one wins. If everyone leaves Steem and the price becomes worthless I don’t see people wanting to double post on two different platforms for too long.

People will naturally need at least a little time to make up their minds. I’m sure many will be shocked this is even going down and will wonder where people went. So many never leave there blogs.

NAME CHOICES

I’m the worst at coming up with a name. I would just been happy with “hivepeak” which is not that great lol.

I’m glad you guys are rebranding away from being stuck to just a blockchain.

I never even though you guys had a discord. I usually prefer to stay in small and private discords so I don’t usually go looking around for them.

Peaksocial and Peak.network sounds interesting. Both leave you quite a wide range of what you could turn into without being to restricted.

You created this giant masterpiece and the question for me is, did you get a fair share of development funds from the Steemit stake in the past? That should change on the Hive, it really should change.

  1. What chain do you prefer us to operate on?
    • You should really not be exclusive, but the HIVE should be your Hometown
  2. What do you like about Hive?
    • It's a natural evolution of STEEM, it had to come at some point anyway. JS abusing the development stake is now the reason, but it was time anyway.
  3. If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.
    • I don't even understand that question
  4. What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?
    • Dpeak.io & Peakd.com
  5. What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
    • Hive
  6. Any concerns you're having?
    • A big fat Ninja Stake killing STEEM prices since 2016

Regarding Hive, I am glad the witnesses decided to do a clean fork with a new chain ID.

I think both projects will take a big hit, and I am sad this all happened, but expect it will be okay long term.

I don't think Steem is dead, both projects just became more high risk.

Regarding your branding, I hate to say it... But the options sound a bit pornish.

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?
The one with the most stable node 😉
I honestly think a lot of people will hop between steem & hive in the first coming months. A lot will depend on where is the most financial value to obtain. Don't get me wrong, I'm pro decentralisation and completely against centralized power (be it online or in real live)... but I'm also a realist. I love the hype and enthousiasm for hive... but in my experience a lot of people are ready to drop their principles as soon as it costs something...

What do you like about Hive?
Right now, uh...well, the idea behind it as it is the only visible thing right now.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.
Yes, I want. Reasons: interface, quality of images, functionalities and...service when something goes wrong! 😂 You guys rock!

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?
Hm, a difficult one...
I go for the first 2 but in different order:
1) Dpeak.io (short, strong, modern... at the peak 😉)
2) Peaksocial.com

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
Up to you guys...I'll follow...

Hey and thanks for your continued effort to bring us the best interface for the blockchain! I would love to see you guys operate on Hive as well. I have really gotten used to the many cool and very useful features that you provide and I don't know if they will be available on the official site. That being said, I would continue using steempeak as well as I intend to wait and see how things are going with Steem. If it's going downhill, I will stop using it of course, but just maybe they will try to build it up differently (not that I have much hope).

You wouldn't want to go with something that has hive in the URL? If not, then these would be my 2 choices.

Dpeak.io
Peak.network

Would be great to see you guys running a witness over at hive :)

Lots in that post.

  1. What chain do you prefer us to operate on?: Right now I am thinking I will prefer to operate primarily on Hive.io
  2. What do you like about Hive? Difficult to answer that at this point, I do think I will like Hive, but until I walk through the door and see and feel the atmosphere of the place difficult to answer. I do like some of the concepts I have read, but we have all seen talk before sometimes with action, sometimes not.
  3. What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand? Freedompeak.com would be my first choice, but it does not seem to be available. the .io ending does seem to be available however. To be honest I am not thrilled with any of the names in your poll. As just a user, I am somewhat tired of the d this d that, and apy seems like a baby wipe name, sorry but I am older and apy endings just don't cut it with me. I would like to see a name that does allow for future expansion of your product, like how Netscape name was not an operating specific name nor product.
  4. What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?: I think at this point in time I would like to see it on Hive as it seems that is the chain I will be on mostly. As it stands right now I do not see a reason to stay on as a steem witness, the dead lock is there, it will be there for awhile unless the 10 or 9 witness in the top 20 all move over to Hive on Friday. I would actually like to see four of them stay as steem witness to keep things in limbo on steem block chain while hive gets established.
  5. Any concerns you're having?: Not really, it seems as if Hive was thought out quite well, I guess like most people we will find out over the weekend, and get a better feel for it.

I would like to say thank you for the smooth transition I had from steemit and steemit communities, you have earned my trust and respect for having such a small team you have all done a wonderful job not only on your product but on keeping your users updated and communicating with them.

IN ALL CAPS AND BOLD: PLEASE OPERATE ON HIVE

What I like about Hive vs. Steem:

  • Hive does not have to trust that Steemit, Inc stake will not be used to vote on DPoS governance nor will be dumped on the open market (while Steem has already seen Stinc stake used to vote on DPoS governance and JSun has stated publicly he wants to dump Stinc stake on open market)
  • Hive has a large team of developers already committed to working on the chain and an inclusive approach that is yielding more community developers committing to work on the project daily; while Steem has no developers at all (even counting Tron developers, Tron chain is a Java implementation and to the best of my knowledge JSun and Tron team do not have any C++ developers who could work on Steem blockchain)
  • The Steem name has always been a terrible name from a branding / marketing standpoint with obvious confusion point RE Steam gaming platform
  • The purchase of Steemit Inc by Justin Sun has only added to negative connotations surrounding Steem naming, as JSun is "controversial" at best descriptor and a con man by nearly universal acclaim in the crypto space

2 URL choices: peaksocial.com would be my choice of the URLs presented to have some continuity with prior naming and branding. Not convinced it is the absolute best choice. Beesocial might be another suggestion, it has a nice ring and fits with Hive naming without directly aping it, although I see there are some other businesses with that name (though none directly in this space I think). beesocial.io is available, beesocial.com is for sale for relatively reasonable price ($4.7k)

I would prefer your witness to be on Hive. To be perfectly honest, anyone thinking of trying to support/use both chains is IMO doing a disservice to the community. Please anyone reading this, do not add value to the old Steem chain. Don't use it, don't run a witness for it, just dump your Steem tokens and leave JSun to play with his dumpster fire and worthless stake.

why? it has nothing to do with 'hive'. Branding should make sense. Not be something unrelated. New users won't get it and it's not going to work well at all.

I believe that they don't want a name which is to connected to any platform. Look at all the Steem domains / tools / dapps and the mass rebranding which is going on right now.

@steempeak is searching for a platform agnostic brand name. Because they:
-don't wish to go through rebranding again,
-plan to support multiple platforms.

Besides, I like the name 😀👍

Ps: Leah, it's nice talking to you after a long time.

Your opinion has a lot of weight with me, @carlgnash. I was just trying to figure out what I was going to do with my Steem tokens and the rewards still coming in after Friday. I don't even know how to convert them to BTC or fiat ... but some advice would be welcome. Remember: a lot of us small creators don't have a clue on how to "dump," and nobody right now is about to just abandon money in the present distress.

19.03.2020 07:36

standard disclaimer about financial advice, etc., applies - but in my own opinion, the value of the current Steem and SBD tokens is going to plummet after the hardfork happens. Quite a few Steem whales have publicly stated they will be selling off their Steem and moving to the Hive chain (@blocktrades being probably the most prominent, and he is one of the largest stakeholders on Steem). It isn't so much about abandoning money, as preserving the value that you worked so hard to get. Again, my own opinion, and I don't have a crystal ball - but I think Steem users who do nothing and just hold on to their Steem tokens are going to see the value of their Steem wallets crash to basically nothing over the next 3 months (the period of time it takes to power down a Steem account / 13 weeks).

As far as how to convert your Steem / SBD to bitcoin or fiat, you have to create an account at an exchange that lists Steem / SBD first (this will require KYC, usually the process involves both submitting your ID and a selfie). Once you have an account, then you deposit Steem at that exchange (transfer your Steem / SBD to the address the exchange gives you for the deposit, with the memo that the exchange gives you to direct it to your own account at that exchange). The exact process / buttons to press is going to vary some from exchange to exchange. You can find a list of exchanges that trade Steem here: https://coinranking.com/coin/fXGcu_EzDgP25+steem-steem/exchanges
I personally use bittrex.com .

Once you have your Steem / SBD on an exchange that lists Steem / SBD, you can trade it for bitcoin. From there you can decide if you want to keep it in bitcoin, or if you want fiat you can convert bitcoin to fiat. I don't believe there are any exchanges that allow a direct Steem to fiat trade without going through an intermediary step like bitcoin. Let me know if you have any specific questions about that process.

I get where you are coming from, and I really appreciate the info ... but just remember what it looks like from the perspective of those who are just learning about the ninja mined stake and what witnesses actually do and trying to keep up with what is going on. Steem just tripled in value -- a lot of small creators aren't going to see the danger of staying around under those conditions unless the benefits of Hive are made clear, because little is clear. I was a professional journalist, and it has still been hard for me to put all the pieces together -- but I do know how to ask questions, seek information, and evaluate sources because of that background ... and you, sir, proved to me that you had the best interest of new Steemians at heart exactly 367 days ago.

Well, guess I'm signing up on Bittrex ... been trying to pick a safe exchange for a minute, so it's about that time...

19.03.2020 09:15

In as simple terms as possible: The two main value propositions of Steem are that it is a decentralized and censorship-resistant social media network. The current (old) Steem blockchain now is neither decentralized nor censorship-resistant, while Hive is*.

For someone who doesn't care about a social media network being centralized or having censorship, Steem wasn't the place to begin with. You could always reach a wider audience and make more money on the mainstream social media networks. And for the people who do care about decentralization and censorship, they are going to drop Steem like a hot potato now.

*Steem is not decentralized now because Justin Sun is running at least 20 puppet witnesses (presumably even from a single server) to centralize the blockchain governance under his control and voting for them with the Steemit, Inc stake.

**Steem is not censorship-resistant now because the steemit.com front end is in fact currently censoring posts. They even added an external black list source in China that they can add posts to censor without even having to change the GITHUB code now.

Being the greedy person I am I'd ideally love it if was a dual chain supported front and can even prove as to be the ideal go between for those who sit on both sides and not forcing users to choose.

I'd say Peaksocial.com would be the ideal name for me because we don't know where this will end up be it a full move to Hive as steem dies or a complete community split, perhaps even other chains wanting to leverage peaksocial in the future too.

Steempeak is by far the most polished front end why would I go anywhere else?

Hi there

I've been reading through many comments related to new hive chain and I've seen your comment too. Many users are being torn, however majority seem to be moving to new hive.

Are you fully moving there or will you stay on both chains? Just curious. I'm trying to figure out what to do myself.

I haven't used Steempeak, although I was leaning toward migrating my bookmarks there due to Justin Sun. How that Hive is a thing, I currently plan to phase out STEEM altogether.

I like Peak.network because it can operate as a hub without any specific branding.

If you can adapt your interface to let people cross-post to several platforms at once, that would be exceptionally cool. Imagine a one-click Steemit, Hive, whatever and a tweet, facebook post, and diaspora post at once should people want might be a cool addition. And since I don't code, I am absolutely certain it would be simple and painless to implement!

Hey @steempeak, I did just write my last post on using your website so thought I'd drop by to offer some feedback:

  • What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

I don't think this matters too much because the interface is the interface. If the user experience remains the same then you can run on whichever chain but I would say that it seems the majority (at least the more vocal members) of the community are looking to move to Hive so it would make sense to have that as your start point, settle there and then develop cross-chaining, perhaps speak with @andrarchy about their openseed developments and see how that can be integrated with your site.

I think a chat function would be the next big thing to integrate in to stop people having to go to Discord but first things first 😃

  • What do you like about Hive?

I think the vision of decentralisation is going to be realised with those that are going to be running Hive (or should I say, launched it). There's a load of developers from a variety of background and think they do have the best interests of decentralisation at heart. Of course, hard to say at the moment but there's a lot of well connected people running it so it will be interesting to see how it pans out!

  • If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.

I'm not too fussed about this although I think losing the "steem" association might be a good thing. Perhaps that is the learning experience from all this is that it's more about the dApp you use, rather than the underlying tech so become your own brand with your own independent name is what I'd say.

  • What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

The one that leaped out was "peaksocial.com" and 2nd place would be dpeak but a distant second. "Social" feels welcoming.

  • What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

Probably Hive for the reason mentioned above as if you're going to move with the majority of the community then Hive would likely be more active I'd say but I'd imagine there'll be a transition period as general users will find out what's going on slowly but surely - it's been a mad month!

  • Any concerns you're having?

Only where everyone is going to go and if people are going to be lambasted for choosing "one chain over the other"... crypto tribalism is a stain on the fabric of what it's trying to achieve but that's more a general concern haha!

Anyway, hope you got something out of this rambly comment!

Keep up the great work!

I love Steempeak's user interface and web design and truly hope that I'll still be able to use it when blogging on Hive. I went to the normal steemit site the other day and almost died because it was so clunky and horrible compared to this masterpiece you guys have created.

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?
HIVE.

What do you like about Hive?
Honestly, that's a hard one for me because I'm not really entirely blockchain savvy. I have been here for two years and while I'm not exactly the most engaged person, I observe and lurk a lot, and spent most of my day reading other people's thoughts and opinions.

My biggest draw to Hive is simply: that's where my friends will be, the weight that's burdened the chain will be gone, and it's exciting.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.
I want to stay on a Peak-esque website attached to Hive, because the Peak is perfect and I'm actually surprised that you guys weren't working with the Hive crew and their hard fork, becoming the new default UI for all that is Hive.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?
I like Peakd, but after reading through the comments I also like BeeSocial!

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
Hive

Any concerns you're having?
No concerns with the Peak 🙂 just hoping that things with the hard fork go okay.

18.03.2020 20:29

YOUR QUESTION RECAP?

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

Hive. But both is acceptable.

What do you like about Hive?

The community aspect seems to be more ingrained from the beginning.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.

I do like the interface, but I will probably move to Hive post fork.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

I honestly don't like any of them. Maybe socialpeak.com instead of peaksocial. It rolls off better for English speaking people IMHO. Maybe peaksociety.com Something that calls users who know nothing of crypto.

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

Hive since you will basically have no power on Steem (most likely).

Any concerns you're having?

I would like steempeak or its derivative to continue to support the majority of the community which I hope will prove to be Hive. If your small team is split between 2 chains I worry about your resources.

Also, keep searching for a better name. Make a decision in the interim, but keep searching.

As of right now, I'd prefer and love to use your platform on Hive. That being said, I'm not yet fully dedicated to leaving Steem, so would like to use your platform on both chains.

Once those shouting down Justin are out of the way, he can then speak his mind and let us know his plan. We might like what he has to say.

Right now, he'll only be insulted, the comment thread hijacked by haters and downvoted into oblivion. He can't have a conversation with those that want to hear him out.

As for a name how about

"LifesPeak" or "PeakYourLife"

"Where you take your life to the next level"

Or

"Where you voice is set free"

So far there have been many requests of us since the announcement yesterday. But give us your honest desire.

I think I will go with Dfropeak.io or something around the lines of FrizzyPeak.network or StickyPeak.com for your URL re-brand.

I would prefer you operate on Hive and I would vote for your witness there. It may not be worth putting any more effort into Steem but I'd like to take a wait and see attitude. My guess is that the sock puppets will take over at some point. Even if they don't, having a blockchain that is provably unsafe would not give a warm and fuzzy feeling to most investors that have a technological background imho.

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

For the time being, I'd like to see Steempeak on both chains. By doing that, I will be able to use my platform of choice, regardless of what will happen with Steem or Hive.

What do you like about Hive?

I love all the hype around it! Steem has been through a dull period during the past half-year, at least not interesting enough for me to get back to it. It's totally by accident that I returned here during the Justin Sun debacle. I mostly came back due to the COVID-19 virus and because I wanted to see how far Steem came since my last visit. Unfortunately, all the news I received was awful. In these dark times, it's quite pleasant to see something positive happening again. This way we can finally leave the ninja-mined stake, that has been dragging Steem down since forever, behind us, and start over with a clean slate.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.

I haven't decided yet where I want to go. It still feels a little like we're robbing Justin by forking his funds out of the new chain. I do understand that this is the only way forward since Justin is not willing to make any concessions, but that doesn't take away the feeling that we're practically deleting his funds from existence. As long as that feeling stays with me, you'll find me on SteemPeak.com, because that's just the best front-end available for the Steem blockchain.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

If the goal is to onboard new users outside the blockchain circle, I think peak.network would be our best bet from the given choices. My second choice would be to take some extra time and see if we, or the people outside of Steem, can come up with something better, potentially not involving peak.

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

For now, all I want to see is a full hype train. Therefore, I'd love to see your witness node running the Hive blockchain. That's our best bet for bringing some positivity back into our community.

Any concerns you're having?

Whatever happens, I sincerely hope that SteemPeak won't suffer too much if this fork doesn't turn out the way we hope it does. I hope you've got a back-up plan ready for when whatever you decide turns out to be the wrong choice because the last thing I want to see is SteemPeak in trouble.

I would like to see you guys migrate over, imho this site is unmatched in its design and flow. I just started using this site about a month and I was angry i hadn't found it sooner, now i am a daily user. I don't trust Steemit in the hands of Justin not with all of his pumping and dumping schemes and his slipperiness. I see Hive as a new way forward, there always seemed to be something holding Steemit back and as an outsider looking in I had no idea that devs were being held back from devoloping steemit to its full potential. Now i feel all of the pent up creation will explode into something beautiful, this move has revitalized the community and brought exposure that we never seen before, and hive was able to get listed quickly on exchanges.

Hive Peak is an actual mountain range in in Spain..js, I like Peakaby and Peakd.

I would like to see your witness on the hive blockchain and I would also vote for it again if votes are not carried.

SteemPeak imho is very important to the community and I just adore this site, so please come with us. I dont care how long it takes and I will support SteemPeak in the meantime.

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

Hive

What do you like about Hive?

Decentralization must be the uncompromising principle!

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.

I am a new user, been here a few days, I see that most of the users I have read who I agree with about the promise and purpose of blockchain and freedom are all "operating" on steempeak. So I would take that as a good sign.
Personally I dont even know how most of this works yet. I would say that the best course of action is to leave the stigma of steem behind and forge on even stronger. As blockchain gains momentum and widespread adoption this fork is going to be seen as a good thing in the eyes of the average user and grow Hive's credibility and appeal.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

Personally I don't really care for any of the suggested urls or names.
I'll be using the best interface regardless of the name but I would think you would want something that reflects a dedication to the new chain.
Why cant you use a .crypto or .zil url?

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
Hive

Any concerns you're having?

Like I said, I'm new here and I gotta say, it aint easy trying to figure out how to navigate and build a presence here. I have been interacting on posts I find interesting and meaningful, but other than a few much appreciated replies, I feel very lost and left out, just spinning my wheels.
Can anyone point me to some instruction besides the FAQs?

Thanks for this post

  1. I want to be able to use SteemPeak (as it is/will be) on Hive. (Though in an ideal situation, those who wish to run on Steem would be able to do that as well - like a on/off switch.)
  2. I like that Hive won't be SteemTron anymore. Steem was good. SteemTron is scary.
  3. I love the Steempeak front-end. I love having my templates, my scheduler and all the other wonderful features you've developed over the months. I plan to stay on this front end (whether it's called Steempeak or anything else) until I'm no longer able/willing to blog on the blockchains.
  4. Dpeak is my favorite. Peaksocial is my second. Peakd sounds like a has-been.
  5. Hive
  6. I just want to see a smooth transition with people able/willing to fix problems as they arise (as is usual for you guys!)

Thanks for taking a thoughtful approach to your future operations.

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

At this point, Hive I guess. It is going to need some familiar apps to help it gain traction.

What do you like about Hive?

Its potential, and at this point that is all anyone can truthfully say.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.

I am a new user of your service, so again I like its potential.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

Based upon your vision as outlined of what you hope to become then PeakSocial.com is the most promising. The other options listed seem contrived and gimmicky that will not age well.

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

First of all, I don't like the term "Witness" for the functions that one performs. A better generic term would be "Advocate". But to answer your question directly; if Hive is your home base then on Hive you should advocate for the community.

18.03.2020 22:13

First off, we need you on HIVE! @steempeak has been by far the best interface for accessing the Steem blockchain and I'd really like to see you be the "flagship" front end for HIVE.

Why? Because now that we're really going to have a decentralized community, more people will be putting sweat equity into promoting HIVE to the outside world... and the most suitable entry point for non-techie social content users would be a re-branded Steempeak.

So let's talk about the NAME. At first, the inclination is to include the "Hive" name... but WHY? Maybe the best name out of the suggested batch is actually "PeakSocial," because it says what it's about ("social"), and it's readily scalable/transferable. As "Peak Social" you can still continue to serve Steem if you wanted, and HIVE, and if some other blockchain social project came along, you could serve them.

Think of PeakSocial as a "wrapper" for many potential things. Maybe even customized/customizable front ends for some new version of SCOT tribes?

But if you wanted to include HIVE in the name, my second choice would be (not listed) "HiveSocial" which again has a high level of "self-explanatory."

What do I like about HIVE? For starters, I like the name. The last "social web experiment" I really liked was now-defunct Tribe.net. Names like "Tribe" and "Hive" have great self-explanatory marketing ooomph. "Hive" is the sort of name that's competitive with "Facebook;" it doesn't sound silly. "Steem" was always a weird name. What else I like about HIVE is that it represents a sort of "landmark case" of the power of community consensus decentralization... if what we're doing here actually works, it will set a precedent that this kind of structure IS, in fact, capable of standing up to challenges from "the establishment."

Do I want to stay on Steempeak? Well.. to the limited extent I will still be part of Steem (I plan to keep my account marginally active to occasionally come back and make a pitch for HIVE) I hope to still use the interface... but I'm not attached to that. Do I want you to stay with Steem? Not my call. I hope you make HIVE your home base.

As for your witness, I would strongly suggest HIVE. Seems we've already seen that JS does want to be part of governance, at least when it suite him. I would submit that running a witness on HIVE makes a lot more sense, even if it involves rebuilding to some degree.

Anyway, I'm totally with @kus-knee in agreeing that you have a GREAT PRODUCT.

Witnesses should be re-branded to capitalise on the fact they're actually human. Fleshpuppets
And since we've 'nicked off' from Steem, the new site shoud be Peak-nickers.

Great update post, given all that is going on @steempeak / @jarvie. You have long had the best UI for the Steem blockchain by far and I’m sure there is a great sigh of relief across the “Steemisphere” that you are making the effort for us to be able to continue using our favorite UI once the “big move” to Hive is in the rearview mirror. My requested input: * I prefer you operate primarily on Hive, but give us a little time to “fade out” on Steem (see below).

* The ***promise*** of greater decentralization and associated benefits. Whether that is reality remains to be seen, as I have my reservations …

* While I imagine long term I will be moving away from the Steem blockchain altogether, I would still like to have access to SteemPeak for a time. Kind of a “fade out” is what I envision, but hard to say right now. I think everyone would understand if SteemPeak did something similar, i.e. kindly support us for a bit, but with some advance notice, begin a “fade out” of your own …

* From the list you have provided, my name choices would be 1) Peaksocial.com and 2) Peak.network, but why not combine them into ***PeakSocial.network***? If so, is Social_Peak.Network better still?

* If you continue to be a Witness, I will be supporting you with the + 22.4 MVests under my control. On Hive for sure, as that is primarily where I expect to spend my future time. On Steem, too, if it benefits you somehow. I will support your Witness wherever it is.

* Not a concern really, but just to clearly state my preference for using the KeyChain / ~~SteemPeak~~ SocialPeak.network combo, i.e. I hope KeyChain gets ported across!

“See” you soon, on the other side of the big move to Hive! 👋

Thanks for being on top of this. It's understandable that app developers will want to rebrand to a name not tied to a particular platform.

I'm going to Hive, because developers and users will be much more motivated to contribute to the platform when it isn't dominated by one company anymore.

As for the names, I like Peak.network. And if I have to choose a second one Peaksocial.com.

My concerns are as you said, what happens to the images hosted on Steemit? It should be possible to rehost them automatically while they're still online, but it won't be easy. Will our passwords be safe if they've been used on Steemit? I would change them to be on the safe side. And what is Steemconnect going to do? They're an essential service, but they're not very communicative.

A Hive is a centralised hierarchic system where the worker drones feed a fat queen. It is literally the opposite of decentralisation - however, it seems those with the loudest mouths would rather tell me to shut up than listen. Oh well - how ironic and sad. As far as the steempeak name goes, I don't think steem 'anything' is likely to work if hive is successful. I don't really know what the meaning or value of 'peak' is, other than 'being at the top' - which is again a centralised reference and not a decentralised one (in terms of hierarchy).

18.03.2020 23:00

I feel similar about the Hive name and made a post about it and went on their discord to discuss and it seems they decided without us in secret.

We could campaign to have it changed in the future, but, that has potential problems and drawbacks as well. Pretty frustrating to me as someone who loves language and decentralization so much...

19.03.2020 01:21
0

Basically, yes. I don't mind that developers go off and fork in private, but when the response to feedback on a pretty serious aspect of the process is "don't be so negative", "you are complaining just for the sake of complaining" and "the name is meaningless" - I feel pretty sad for the state of the 'community' and it's voices. It's particularly frustrating to be met with a wall of obvious unconsciousness and denial in the form of people claiming that someone with input is being 'negative' just for dissenting when it is obviously them who is negatively rejecting other voices.
I am not interested in begging and pleading with anyone for any reason. People make their choices and get their result.

19.03.2020 01:37
0

Agreed. I think anyone should be able to fork and do their own thing, however, when they tout community as their main strength and then leave the broader community out of such important decisions and decide in a secret sort of way like that just feels a bit off.

And yeah... I was being told similar things as you, and I was being totally peaceful and calm an d respectful and they were saying similar stuff. Very strange energy indeed. Felt like they just want their project and don't want any criticism.

Well said at the end there. I concur and I'm glad to see I wasn't alone in my sentiments about trying to suggest an alternative name. I think this could have been so much more amazing if we had a name more in line with freedom, or love or life or so many other things besides "Hive".

shrug oh well.

19.03.2020 04:57
0

Yes, absolutely. I think part of the issue is that they want to get it all done at high speed and the name has been decided as being a low priority and something that people can argue over for days. I do get where they are coming from to some extent, it's just a problem for me that marketing strategy is being over simplified. On top of the name issue there's also the reality that over-centralisation, ignoring the community and poor marketing are precisely the main problems that we all hated about steemit inc. and yet here were are facing essentially the same thing from day one from the community themselves. history repeats when lessons are not being learned.

19.03.2020 05:04
0

Yeah, I think so too... And I can also get where they are coming from to an extent. But, I also highly agree with everything else you said, well said.

That's exactly how I've been feeling, and it's almost like it's a little worse in some ways because at least we would sort of expect this kind of behavior from steemit inc or Justin, but, our own community who I thought were suppose to be significantly anarchist/libertarian?

I thought this place was much more focused on individual freedom and when they picked a name like Hive which to me more often means the opposite of that and then they did it in secret and passed it sort of like the Patriot Act and then in their official blog post mentioned they weren't going to airdrop some people based on their political position and what they said about centralization, it's just like... Wow... What happened? I thought we were on a similar page and now they're doing some really sketchy questionable stuff all of a sudden... I hope things calm down in time, yet, either way this is now history and this new chain was birthed in secret by a smaller centralized group instead of out in the open by the broader community... :\

19.03.2020 06:24
0

It's not the best start, I agree. A few people in the Hive discord stated that they are not anarchists in any sense - so it seems that may be part of the issue. There will probably always be people who actually do value liberty who will be willing to continue Steem's codebase on - however, as many people have stated (including me) 'anarcho capitalism is not anarchy' and for me, this just reinforces the reality here.

21.03.2020 05:07
0

I thought maybe that's what you meant and it didn't make sense to me cause I was arguing for the community to pick the name, not me. Why would I be the peak if I'm asking for the community to do it and not me? No. I wasn't trying to be any kind of leader, I genuinely didn't think the name was a good fit for freedom and I thought a much better choice would be to let the community decide. I think that would be awesome if we all could have decided together as a group.

Hi there

I've been reading through many comments related to new hive chain and I've seen your comment too. Many users are being torn, however majority seem to be moving to new hive.

Are you fully moving there or will you stay on both chains? Just curious. I'm trying to figure out what to do myself.

26.03.2020 13:23
0

I see. And yeah, it's a very divisive thing.
To answer your question, I'm mostly moving to Hive.
I don't intend to post much on steemit anymore, the main reason for this is because I heard some hive people talking and saying stuff like they would consider people who still post here as traitors and might try to deny them rewards on hive cause they don't want people supporting their competitors, and... Steemit also has been censoring more and getting worse, so... As sad as it is, I am allowing those threats to influence my decision, however, I think steem might still end up being the winner in the long run since they have so much more money, my plan is to sort of just see what happens. I'm not going to cash out right away, but, I might if the value goes up. And for the time being I'm just going to post on Hive, unless something changes.

I run the IFC, so I will keep posting that here on steem as well for any players who might not move over, but, mostly just going to post on Hive. Good luck figuring out what you're going to do!

Positivity is mechanically integrative and includes the negative too. 'Positive thinking' is a problem if it includes denials. As a professional digital marketer and systems engineer, I know I need to think of all angles when it comes thinking of a symbol to be used to represent a brand. Blocking out problems with a word will not stop the brand losing optimal placement.

I like hives and I like the idea of working together. I believe in decentralization and centralization, long story. It is very complex as the world has both simultaneously and that is a balance, a mechanism that goes back and forth. It is somewhat impossible for humans to actually have one without the other apart from hypothetical theories and temporary moments in history.

i am not sure how much you know about bees but you are wrong, and missed it by a lot.
Drones are the only fat ones in the hive and they either die after mating or get cast out when winter comes.
queen bee is hard working. all her life is dedicated to making more bees for the hive, and would not survive on her own.
The colony relies on each other for everything within one another individual bees (workers, drones, and queens) wouldn't be able to survive. The whole colony is also needed to reproduce. The colony of a bee is a well-oiled machine working together to survive.

If you would like to pick one bad thing in this than that would be swarming. But i doubt it Hive will ever become to big so it has to swarm.

Queen honey bees are created when worker bees feed a single female larvae an exclusive diet of a food called "royal jelly".[59][62] Queens are produced in oversized cells and develop in only 16 days; they differ in physiology, morphology, and behavior from worker bees. In addition to the greater size of the queen, she has a functional set of ovaries, and a spermatheca, which stores and maintains sperm after she has mated.

source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honey_bee

bees operate on programs, imprints and face problems from the group if their behaviour 'dissents' and challenges the queen's reproductive dominance. bees have been used as a symbol of royalty since ancient egyptian times - the 'queen of england' wore a bee gown at her coronation. bees and hives are absolutely a symbol of centralisation and hierarchy. i am confused as to why anyone things anything different and as yet no-one has provided any evidence to the contrary of my position.

Honey bee
A honey bee (also spelled honeybee) is a eusocial flying insect within the genus Apis of the bee clade, all native to Eurasia but spread to four other continents by human beings. They are known for construction of perennial, colonial nests from wax, for the large size of their colonies, and for their surplus production and storage of honey, distinguishing their hives as a prized foraging target of many animals, including honey badgers, bears and human hunter-gatherers. In the early 21st century, only seven species of honey bee are recognized, with a total of 44 subspecies, though historically seven to eleven species are recognized. The best known honey bee is the western honey bee which has been domesticated for honey production and crop pollination; modern humans also value the wax for candlemaking, soapmaking, lip balms, and other crafts.

Many people assume that the queen controls everything. She doesn't. The only thing she actually controls is reproduction. Queens create a chemical called queen substance or queen pheromone. The retinue of worker bees that feed her spread this queen substance around to the other workers in the hive, and as long as there is enough of it, none of the workers' ovaries develop. In addition to this, the queen internally controls whether an egg is fertilized (is female) or unfertilized (is male).

Externally its a different matter. Workers actually control whether or not the queen lays fertilized or unfertilized eggs by the size of the cells they build. Smaller cells induce the queen to lay fertilized eggs, larger cells are a cue to lay unfertilized eggs. Queen cups also induce a queen to lay fertilized eggs, which are created by workers when the levels or queen substance produced by the queen become too low (usually when either the queen is getting too old, or when the hive gets too big.)

I appreciate that bees work together, yes. However, they do not embody independence or variation per se - they are centralised by definition.
I personally am less interested here in the biological mechanics of inter-bee relationships, than I am in the public perception of the new blockchain. Symbols have different meanings to different people. It's clear that some people just think of 'busy bees' and 'doing work' when they think of bees and hives - however, many people think of homogenous, lockstep hierarchy and 'classes' of people - a hivemind. Orwell's 1984 is the classic example of groupthink and this kind of issue in humanity. I find it actually quite disturbing that this isn't obvious to more people here considering that most people I usually speak with are on the same page as me.

19.03.2020 03:50

i understand what you are talking about, but we don't have a hivemind in our language. not sure for other languages but i know 3 that don't use that. so maybe that is why it is not my first association.

maybe we should use this to educate people of bees and importance of them in the world 😁. For example i assume that a lot of people know how shitty the world would be without bee hives.

19.03.2020 04:16

Hehe. Well, increased care for bees would certainly be a good thing, however, given that Wifi networks are causing bees serious problems it seems a bit of a hard task to suggest that a wifi powered social network is going to help real bees!

I like what you're saying about bees and I'm a fan of hierarchy as opposed to hypothetical anarchy which is only theoretical. I believe in decentralization and centralization at the same time. I believe in the balancing act between extremes. I am not against hierarchy but some people are against it. But one of the problems is when hierarchy government is infiltrated by globalists and others. People can do bad. So, centralized hierarchy can mess things up. But no hierarchy can also screw with things as well. To some extent and in some ways, a blockchain can be a decentralized system that is somewhat enforced by a centralized code, the blockchain, which either is or should allow for modification via decentralized voting, you know, the users, the witnesses. Generally, I do promote anarchy and decentralization in order to minimize and counter tyrannical authoritarianism, globalism, tech cartels, fascists, etc, etc.

I still have not used your site, yet have considered it unlike any of the other alternate Steem apps. Hive will need a main interface, and I'm a little surprised they haven't contacted you to be that interface based on the rep you have built here that far exceeds any of the others (imo).

I believe this chain will be transformed beyond recognition due to the war taking place and the ultimate end result which will be the forced migration to Tron. Hoping you will have your witness on the new chain, and be one of the pioneers in making history in the crypto world on the power of a real community.

I concur with many of the comments below. Steempeak is the primary interface to the blockchain that many have adopted. I think we need to have you on Hive as the defacto entry point. Peaksocial.com is probably one of the better choices, in my mind but that beesocial certainly could work as well as a url. Lots of decisions to make for all of us, let alone have business factors to contend with in the mix. I'm hoping you decide to support and run on Hive.

18.03.2020 23:57

I'm going to support Hive, and I hope that the SteemPeak team does as well. I'd love to see you on there, and would support you.

As for the name, I personally find anything with "d" slapped in front of it a bit stupid & overused ( I should know, I made a project with that naming structure myself lol ). It just sounds kinda corny & lame tbh. Out of the options you provided, I personally find Peak.network the most appalling. After all, if your plan is to support multiple chains, then having "network" in the name would make a lot of sense.

The idea would be this is the "peak" of social experiences. A "network" of community hubs & spaces. I really like the sound of that!

Here's hoping I see you all on Hive :^)

I can't say that I understand all of that, but I definitely want to see Peak as a hive front-end. As for keeping a Steempeak front-end, I figure that you'll keep one there unless it becomes unviable. If I feel I need to use Steem, then I can just add easily use Steemit if you drop things there. Hive is where the communities I've come to know and love are headed, so that's where my heart lies.

Peak.network and Peaksocial.com have a nice ring for me.

I'd support a Peak witness on either network, but I don't see JS allowing anything other than his own near the top 20 to have any influence.

But i have been campaigning for over 2 months and very few seem to have looked deeply. Anyway, i am patient, persistent and praying that a proper proposal for Matrix-8 (when it is made) will get supported and built on Hive.

Will support your block producer (not that my stake will matter a lot)

Hey, @steempeak / @jarvie, et al:

Here are my answers to your questions—

  • If there's a way to crosspost to both chains, that would be good for me (not sure how others would feel about that, though). However, if I have to choose one, then I think HIVE, for the simple reason that STEEM is likely to become TRONitized at some point, barring some major about face.
  • I like the idea that HIVE can start out more decentralized than STEEM. Whether it will actually be that way from the beginning, or stay that way, we'll have to wait and see.
  • I actually think for all the reasons you said you would rebrand, that doing away with SteemPeak.com is for the best.
  • I'm not really fond of any of the choices, so I'm going straight to OTHER with a suggestion:

—Someone has already mentioned something like beepeak.com (or what might be reasonably available). I like the idea better of beespeak.net or whatever. It has the advantage of going with HIVE, but also potentially being independent, and the word bespeak has some interesting (and some fitting) definitions. It could be considered bee-sPEAK, or bees-PEAK,either of which works great for what you are and what you want to be. PEAK remains prominent in the new name in either case, so you don't have to do a complete logo overhaul. :)

  • If you really want to do a witness, I feel like there's a better chance of being a consensus witness there than on STEEM, the way things are looking now.
  • There are all kinds of concerns regarding the TRON takeover of the STEEM blockchain and now the impending hard fork. No easy answers, a lot of unknowns, and plenty of hard feelings all around. So, yeah, all kinds of concerns. Not entirely sure what to do about any of them other than to watch both chains and see where they go after Friday morning.

I do wish you luck, regardless of what you do. I think you've been a great, innovative addition to the STEEM blockchain, and have ambitious but achievable goals for the future. The trick is always moving forward, without getting ahead of yourself, or forgetting what (or who) got you to where you are in the first place. I hope to see all the improvements you're planning in the not so distant future.

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?
Hive. No question there.

What do you like about Hive?
Steem is getting hard-forked one way or another, if JS has his way. Hive looks like the fork that has investment and momentum. The name is a good nod to the communities-focused nature of the chain.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.
The interface is nice. Admittedly I haven't branched out that far in trying others. Something always felt a little uncomfortable about how steemit branded itself in relation to steem, though I didn't know the depths of it... I just knew I wanted something that was stable, secure, and not steemit. What's the point of a dApp if everyone uses the official corporate endpoint anyways?

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?
Of those listed, PeakSocial.com. I saw BeeSocial in the comments, I like that too.

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
Hive. I spitefully want a bunch of witnesses to stay back on steem and fuck sun, but the health of the real blockchain takes priority.

Any concerns you're having?
I'm worried that a "watch and wait for stability" approach from some dApps switching over will lead to many lost posts from a user perspective. Worried about how onboarding new users and recovering accounts will work out, the new chain is necessary for the community to come together to solve such concerns but I'm not sure it's sufficient... and it might not be fast enough to avoid a significant upheaval. (Especially if the 30-day voting block applies to airdropped SBD.)

It would be nice if they gave you the option to use their own login method, without having to use keychan or steemconnect since the people who can only be accessed through a mobile device are limited to not using this dapp so well done; Since Android does not allow the use of the new steemconnect or the default one through keychan, we cannot download any extension to use it.
I cannot use steeampeak right now because steemconnect does not work for me on Android 5 and for keychan I must download an extension that I do not have access to from my browser either because it is used on my mobile phone.😔
I hope you take into account the opinions expressed here, see you in the hive.

We depend on a good API (One that also runs hivemind)

Why not just "Speak"? There are 500+ domains these days, one should be free for it :)

WITNESS?

WITNESS!

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

Both, ideally. Maybe with a little "reblog" button like you use for communities

What do you like about Hive?

The name is better, and hopefully there will be less focus on the chain/drama and more focus on getting normies in

@steempeak,
It's still unclear more detaols about HIVE, specially who backed it, who dev the project. So I wish to wait till those questions resolved. THen yeah I hate to be at a TRON sh!t. That's the Novel Corona on Crypto Space. Therefore, it's better move to Hive Chain if all top witnesses will support that and I think https://steempeak.com/ URL is good to run on that too ;)

Here's your new name: Speak

You're welcome.

As to what I like about Hive, the only thing I can like about Hive is that it's going to enable the community that endured Steem's stormy existence to remain a community. Until we get on there, I won't know more. I don't expect Steem to remain of interest to me if Hive functions at all. I am not interested in being property of Sun Yuchen. I hope to support your block production on Hive, and don't want to have to migrate to another UI, so please do make the move to Hive.

I'm a pretty big fan of Steempeak as an interface to this community. I turned to it when awaiting resolution of issues I had with the Steemit TOS. Very quickly I never wanted to go back to Steemit, and those TOS issues were never resolved anyway. Since then the development progress you have undertaken has impressed me constantly, and continues to do so today. Keep up the good work!

To encourage your continued labor I voted for your SPS proposal, and also vote your witness. It's very little, as I have very little, but it's what I have, so it's what I can do.

I'm quite excited to hear hints about the future you have planned for Speak (just rolls off the tongue like it's what tongues are for, don't you agree?) and am happy to be here, today, to be availed the benefits of your hard work and agile minds going forwards.

Thanks!

First of all, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS! Very appreciated!


Secondly; I've asked this a couple of times already:

Users who have used SteemPeak to upload pictures shouldn't be affected but how will users who used Steemit in the past be impacted with images? The URLs should still work ... but for how long?

Still, no good answer.


Now to the answers.

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

hive

What do you like about Hive?

It's a fresh start with complete history. It's an opportunity to fix what's not working good and to build on it, create consensus and governance.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.

We don't know what will happen to steemit.com when they lose all the dapps. At least, we'll need a functional wallet to get rid of the Steem :) Power down period included.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

  1. Peak.network
  2. Peaksocial.com

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

hive

Any concerns you're having?

None. I trust you guys. Isn't it funny that a completely digital thing like the blockchain, and the layers above it, comes down to trust and beliefs? In the end, everything is about being social. We are a society and many communities.

Thank you.

Reblogged and fully upvoted!

My vote is for Dpeak and I am using Steemit.com right now to publish this comment with but I may use Steampeak.com in the future to cross-post to Steem and I do plan to post to Hive in the future as well via whichever Hive app might be the best for that, and that may be Dpeak. Someday, my focus will probably be on Hive and I will probably just copy and paste some of my posts to Steem every once in a while with links pointing back to Hive.

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?
Hive over Steem. But I do like the idea of being non-exclusive and able to access multiple blockchains from your interface.

What do you like about Hive?
The chance to continue Steem without the risk of the ninja mined stake being used as Sun is now using it.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.
I've only started using SteamPeak over Steemit in these past few weeks and plan on continuing once the move to Hive is complete. Steampeak looks better, it has more features and I like that it's independent to the blockchain in a way that Steemit never was.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?
My preference would be PeakD and DPeak, with the eventual goal to become simply Peak.

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
Again, Hive over Steem. But if the idea is to be non-exclusive to any blockchain, you could run multiple.

Any concerns you're having?
Have never been a fan of forking within crypto, but hope this is really just going to be Steem minus the ninja mined stake. Also not sure about when or how to go about powering down on the Steem side.

make it simple. stick with one chain, everything else is too confusing, steemit/steempeak is already super confusing for newcomers. makes sense to go with hive, ninja stake out, no chance of that stake being used to control the chain. that said a lot will depend on the workings of hive and if they can prevent a large stakeholder to control it. a lot of whales will be transferred there, so don't know how that will turn out.

Best looking UI with many great features.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

I like peak.network but a .com domain would be great, not sure which one.

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

Hive. I don't see much reason in running a node on a centralized chain.

Any concerns you're having?

Could be hard to create a smooth transition for all users. Also, if Steem-Engine will not migrate instantly, there could be issues because of the tokens.

In the short term, I'd like to see you on both chains. If Justin doesn't change his current approach it will become a moot point as Steem will not thrive. If by some chance Steem thrives, bridges between the two chains will be amazing.

I like the peaksocial.com option for a name. It speaks to your core work and leaves options for integrating other chains if Open Seed works as they want as a link.

As much as I would like to spend more time using Steempeak .. it hurts my eyes to read much on it. The only discernible difference between the font on Steemit and Steempeak is it uses Serif font and that really pains me to say because I love sans serif normally but apparently my getting older eyes don't.

Out of what's in the list peak.network feels like it would encompass whatever chains you wanted to cover...however you cover them (my poor meagre brain is still puzzled by the first question XD).

This obviously can't be done in a matter of days, but in the long run, I'd love to see an integrated front-end that

  • lets users choose to participate on one or both chains (or more)
  • Links user accounts between chains
  • dynamically tracks prices
  • automatically posts on the chain with the highest expected payout value
  • and integrates everything from both (all?) chains into a single perspective that de-prioritizes the location of the data.

Hive all day

A real chance at closer to real decentralization and no dead weight hanging over the chain's head.

I could care less what you call this site as long as it points to Hive. The UI/UX is the best of the front ends and I look forward to continuing to use it on Hive.

I am most partial to the Dpeak.io since that more so represents the Decentralized Peak and is probably the easiest to remember.

Hive chain for the witness

My only concern is that things will be working sooner than later and that we can all work quickly to move on from the corruption and disruption of Steemit and Justin.

19.03.2020 16:20

Definitely need this site to be on the Hive chain, not overly concerned about Steem once the fork occurs, and it would make sense to drop that chain entirely. Hopefully there's no cross connect with Tron either, it's as tainted as Steem at this point, and for all the same reasons.

As for the name, I like peaksocial.com, but it might be a bit cumbersome in conversation to say out loud over and over. I like the peak part of the name, even having a lite phone app called sneakpeak or something, i dunno. Names don't necessary have to make sense linguistically (facebook, walkman, iphone, etc to illustrate the point), but it has to have a ring to it like Peakeasy or Peakit or Peakpal, something that doesn't mean anything yet has character.

I've been using steempeak for good while, so I know you guys will do well no matter what path you go down. It wasn't luck then, and it won't be luck now that brings you success. See you at the Hive!

Hi there

I've been reading through many comments related to new hive chain and I've seen your comment too. Many users are being torn, however majority seem to be moving to new hive.

Are you fully moving there or will you stay on both chains? Just curious. I'm trying to figure out what to do myself.

Hello,
Long time fan and user of your services. I love SteemPeak.com and what you do.
To address your questions:

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

  • Move to Hive. I will not be coming back to Steem unless JS makes a MAJOR u-turn in the next few days. Sure steem may do good and may hit $5... but Justin Sun is a dick.

    What do you like about Hive?

  • To be fair, it's like steem... just more community support. Also, but a bit better of a name to brand.

    If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.

  • Well, yes, I would like to keep using Steem peak. The tools you provide and features are top-notch. I like the snippets.

    What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

  • Something like Social Peak. Because you are peaking Social attention.
  • or something like the final Peak. As its the top of the mountain, the final peak to see all the world the best.

    What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

  • Hive. You will lose the witness wars to the socket puppets...

    Any concerns you're having?

  • Well, a lot. Due to the Corona, I have been out of work for 3 months. Money is so tight, Drama on the steem chain, the crypto I am invested 100% into. If this fails then well, I am totally boned and have nothing... so success is the only option here...

If I can help you beta test or make a logo for you or assist, let me know!

I've been very impressed with SteamPeak, thanks for building something awesome!

I think it makes the most sense now to operate on the Hive chain. I agree with @stellabelle that "hive" should be included in branding, and I also want to respectfully agree with @whatsup that the proposed options do sound a bit pornish. :/

I saw a suggestion in the comments to use beesocial.com. This seems logical to me because even though it doesn't include "hive" it has the association. What would be really cool would be to use bee.hive, if .hive was a TLD.

19.03.2020 20:25
0

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?

  • For now, it will be Hive, but the front-end user experience for the blog currently sucks just as bad as Steemit. Therefore, I hope you move to Hive.

What do you like about Hive?

  • The continued desire to remain decentralized (such a thing really doesn’t exist, nor will it). The rest is yet to be determined.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.

  • See my answer to question number one. The @SteemPeak user side is much better.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?

  • I really don’t like any of the choices provided, but out of that list I would vote for Peakd.com or Peaksocial.com. My preference is you keep the “Peak” theme but show the Hive association in some way.
  • My suggestion is to stay away from anything not a traditional top-level domain (like .io). Many organizations also block non-traditional top-level domains as well.

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?

  • Hive

Any concerns you're having?

  • I have two concerns:
    1. The seamless integration of whatever SteemPeak becomes with Hive
    2. The Search functionality of SteemPeak needs improved to allow easier search of content using “Google Fu” like functions. (Ex: Quotes when searching for exact word or phrase.
19.03.2020 21:05

Well, since you were good enough to ask…

Let's take it a step back and have an up front question: Do you want an interface that operates on Hive?

I've seen a lot of "what we want" statements coming out of the Hive people but I haven't seen something that's important for answering your question:

What will they actually deliver for me?

What's in it for me?

Because, like most of the other creators on the Steem blockchain (and honestly, I do better than so very many others who work equally if not more hard on their content, thank you to the people who appreciate what I do), I don't see as much these days as I used to. A lot of the people who have been witnesses and developers over the last two years are also the same people involved with Hive, which makes them at some level responsible for the situation on the blockchain as it stands. I see a lot of promises but I don't see a lot of plans which include me/us beyond "here's a few fairly nebulous ideas and a whole new blockchain."

Ideally, from a creator point of view, I wanted interface that works on everything, where I only have to post once and my content is distributed to wherever people might consume it. I don't want to have to worry about what database lives underneath whatever my audience wants to use. The more the merrier, whether it be Steem, LBRY, or Hive. From my perspective as a creator the multiplicity of back ends is just a complication that I wish would go away. As long as there is some way for me to be compensated I don't care what it is.

Which brings us to another important fact about being a creator

Users who have used SteemPeak to upload pictures shouldn't be effected but how will users who used Steemit in the past be impacted with images? The URLs should still work ... but for how long?

How many tens of thousands (possibly millions) links on already established content go to Steemit.com or SteemPeak.com? I haven't run the numbers and I don't have access to a database (unlike you guys), but it's got to be more than a handful. The lack of ephemerality is/was one of the big selling points of the whole idea of being a creator on the Steem blockchain with redundant interfaces. The idea was that the content couldn't/wouldn't be able to be destroyed and, being literally interwoven block by block with all the other creations on the blockchain, reference could be maintained.

It's pretty unlikely (and by that read "bloody unthinkable") that Steemit Inc. is going to effectively make the whole blockchain unreadable, which is what would have to happen in order for that link content to go away. Are the blobs that the URLs refer to in those payloads not content interwoven with the blockchain in toto? If so, than that represents a whole different set of failures which weren't ever really put forward by the platform. (And now that I think on it, certainly weren't necessarily content stored in the blockchain proper but I'm betting that everyone who uploaded images directly to one of the platforms believed they were.)

As a blockchain reading interface, however, it's not your responsibility to read content which is not part of that blockchain. If it's there, read it. If it's not, it doesn't resolve, and it's not your problem. That sucks for resources which weren't part of the cache, but that's a problem when it comes to all sorts of web ephemerality.

And if so why? Also will there be enough 3rd party support to keep it running. And for how long do you need access... we recognize all of our users are about to be holders of STEEM tokens and HIVE tokens and need a wallet interface for both.

What kind of functionality is going to be implemented in this new spinoff blockchain that would not be inter-compatible with the Steem blockchain, as implemented in under a month? None? Then why would you need to shut down or stop operating SteemPeak at all, at any point? If you have a new name, it's trivial to point both DNS at the same site. If both blockchains have pretty much the same functionality, and there's no way in Hell that Hive will have much more in the way of functionality or even a significantly different API, the only slight challenge will be giving people the option of which blockchain to do an operation on, and that's pretty lightweight user interface stuff.

But since I have you here and while I'm asking questions, let me put one forward that I don't think I've seen anyone else actually bring up. And for the record, it's not a question which goes to your responsibility or what you (as an organization) should be doing, but one about the greater Hive blockchain design which you will become rapidly party to if you decide to become one of the major interfaces (and I don't expect do you not to):

When we signed up for Steem, most of us there Steemit Inc., we relinquished some of our rights to our content to Steem as part of the agreement for being able to access the Steem blockchain. More specifically, Steemit Inc. entered into an agreement with those who use the Steem blockchain to replicate and duplicate their copyrighted material.

The new Hive blockchain has entered into no such agreement with creators regarding their content. They have no legal grounding to replicate, duplicate, and distribute content originally intended to be posted to the Steem blockchain and part of the IP (however loosely) associated with Steemit Inc. If their intention is to duplicate the content of the entire blockchain, and if they intend to somehow be the inheritor of all of the accounts on Steem in the migration they have to be, how do they intend to justify that in a legal sense? There is no public good argument to be made, as in the case of research, and for a bunch to go on at great length about freedom from centralization and proper reward to creators that seems like a serious omission.

Copyright is held by a creator from the moment of creation onward unless otherwise legally delegated. Even if it is publicly displayed, the creator still maintains copyright holding.

Now, if Hive intends to effectively reset to a tabula rasa state with no content on the blockchain except/until this "airdrop" of Hive tokens to match the current holdings of Steem, that's not an issue – but that's not at all what I've gathered is the intention of the content of the new blockchain. Maybe it is and I simply have a misapprehension.

But, summary:

As a creator, I haven't seen a good pitch for why I should be more excited for Hive than moving to any other new social media platform.

As it's been sold, there isn't a particular advantage for me on the new blockchain because I don't hold significant amounts of Steem nor have I been getting particularly good rewards.

I want to stay on SteemPeak because I'm lazy, like most people, and it's part of my current routine to go to a singular website in order to engage with the Steem blockchain, and you would rather that I kept that routine up as would the people who really want Hive to happen as a single point of contact.

Honestly, the list of options for renaming are all pretty terrible, but the best of the lot are probably Peak.network and Peaksocial.com, end of the two the latter is so bland as to be completely flavorless.

I really don't care what chain your witnesses on because, as a user of the platform as a creator, I get screwed either way and there's nothing I can do about it. From the perspective of a social media platform engineer, your best bet is to be on both chains in order to maximize the number of people you have a good argument for bringing on board to your website.

And I think I've covered all of my concerns.

Most of the people I've seen really engaged in this discussion are either mindless Hive drones (the pun makes itself, I just recognize that) or mindless Steem boosters. I have yet to see an actual nuanced discussion of what the experience is intended or should be like for the actual user base. In that sense, I'm extremely glad to see that SteemPeak is at least asking as an organization some of the interesting questions, but I am simultaneously disturbed that they haven't been asked in a significant way before and they certainly haven't been answered.

But I appreciate the opportunity to try.

Most defiantly want you as a front end for Hive !!!
Also those of us that still want to interact with the steem chain ( at least for 13 more weeks lol <,<) need Steampeak so we can avoid Steemit and it's BS.
Love your service I prefer it to any other front end.

hmmm, some good stuff to think about..

I like the idea of having a wallet for both that isn't somehow connected back to steemit.

And this idea of using [insertName]Peak for variosu chains and focussing not on the chain but on being a place for content creators is amazing

Another suggestion: could you add a setting which makes us post on Hive, but post a link to the Hive post on Steem? This will keep reminding casual and neutral users that we've moved. To be clear, this is a hostile action - I would downvote people who did the reverse.

Give people 1 year of domain redirection to the new Peak, that's all we need

So many questions I have no answers to yet. What I love is reading "Hive support", because it means not to switch but to integrate.

For a name I'm thinking of lots af thigs block, crypto, decentral. Add your PEAK. And I love the idea to have an independent front-end that naturally depends on chains. That's why I'm finally here when I'm looking for great features you already have. Chain on!

What chain do you prefer us to operate on?
Still processing what is happening, certainly we'd go with the more decentralized, so Hive for sure.

What do you like about Hive?
The promise of real decentralizaction.

If you want to stay on SteemPeak.com tell us why.
The features are awesome but sure the name has no sence anymore if STEEM is dead.

What 2 URL choices do you prefer for our re-brand?
We like Peaksocial.com - The others are weird, and maybe we're so late to say proposals but we'll try:

  • blockpeak
  • peakablock
  • peakyblocks

What chain would you prefer our witness to be on?
If Hive will be as good as it says, then Hive.

Any concerns you're having?
Still confused about Steem decease and the Hive awakens, a lot of 'technical' lenuage that many people is not familiar with, new projects have to remember that there are people here that does not understand deeply how things work behind the scenes. Like us :D we came here for money, sure, like you! but we are still here because of the community, the people, to share stuffs we do and like, to learn stuffs, could not stop saying what we like from this community. BUT, we always need to do a deep research to notice what's going on, I mean... Come on guys! Explain things with apples please!!! hahaha! Hope to see you all on Hive.

For sure, that action was unacceptable. Ned had been working badly for over a year.

If he wanted to sell Steemit and leave, he should have burnt the pre-mined steem before, and sold only the company. By selling the pre-mined steem, he was selling the control of the network.

If Justin wanted the company and not take control of the network, just after the buying he should have burned the steem himself.

The end was him articulating with exchanges into powering up their customers' steem to take even more control on the network! And claim the community was a bunch of thieves!
