Hive powers many apps and is run completely decentralized by community members all around the world.
With an account, you have direct access to the ecosystem.
Several account creation services are provided by the community, offering you different levels of privacy and ease-of-use.
Remember: Hive does not offer "reset password" features. You. Must. Store. Your. Keys. Safely!
A list of registration providers for the Hive blockchain:
Hive accounts/addresses are easy-to-remember usernames (3 to 16 characters). They have to be created by another Hive account for either liquid HIVE or Resource Credits, which are generated by staking HIVE.
Some providers offer accounts for free which requires phone/email verification to mitigate abuse, while other providers charge a small fee but require no verification
For advanced users: If you already have an account with staked HIVE, then you can also create accounts yourself, for example with this tool.
Once you have an account, you need to make sure your keys & password are secure.
Remember: Hive does not offer "reset password" features. You. Must. Store. Your. Keys. Safely!.
Make sure you print them out and then use one of our Wallets to store your posting, active & memo keys.Next Step: Choose Wallet
