A new release of is now available. Keep reading for the full list of changes and improvements ;)

The new release is now live at


1. New signup options with Hiveonboard

It's now possible to begin the signup process to create a new Hive account directly on PeakD. After a short overview of the required steps to create the account the new user can select an username and complete the account creation on @hiveonboard.


Other options are still available, so the final choice is always up to the user:


2. Use the Hive Account Referral System

With the new signup process we also adopted the Hive Account Referral System. We worked with @roomservice and @cardboard on this new system and finally it's integrated into PeakD.

Also a new Referrals page is available to get your referral link, manage the default beneficiaries and check the new accounts that used your referral link to signup.


And this is an overview of the new page (part of the page will be improved in the upcoming releases):


3. Include for post liquid payout

When publishing a new post there is now an option to select as the payout option. You can read more about the project here.


This is a third party service, so be sure to understand how it works before using this payout option.

4. Some minor improvements and bug fixes

As always some minor improvements, updates and fixes across the website. You can check the full release notes here:

A quick recap of all the changes included in the current release

Support the @peakd project

Now is probably a nice time to remind you of the ways you can support the development of @peakd.


We have a proposal on the Decentralized Hive Fund. You can review the proposal here.
If you agree to the proposal and you think the points mentioned add value to the Hive Blockchain consider supporting it using the above links or directly with this link.

We also run a witness server to help produce the blocks for the Hive Blockchain. You can vote for our witness so we are in a position to process more of them.

Vote on the witness page:

  • Using Keychain: You just have to click and approve the transaction
  • Using HiveSigner: You'll need access to confirm the transaction with your Active Key at least

Oh sorry, forgot to mention that one ...and thanks for suggesting this small improvement :D

Yeah the little droplet icon for "liquid" is fun

I created an account last night through the referral process, the layout is great and it worked a treat - nice one!

Loving the referral landing page, looks great, won't be so shy to send out my referral link now :)

Feel free to share suggestions took me a bit to create a page that was not too boring or too crowed with details :D

Excellent was waiting for a ref. system to kick in! Shall be referring peeps 😀

What awesome news!! I already loved PeakD but man, I think I fell in love with you guys even more ;) Thank you so much for your hard work & never falling short of being amazing. 💚

The new signup process is a great addition To peakd @roomservice and @cardboard and you guys thank you very much , i will try all the features

let's see how easy it is for your friends... In testing it was super fast. However I already have Keychain installed. So helping them use those keys and perhaps install Keychain will be the bottleneck now... getting the account is now super simple

We will be testing

Our most awaited feature is the referral system implemented on peakd. Thanks for making this

Killing it guys, thanks! I was just looking for information about on boarding and I’m so excited to be able to do it via PeakD!

Great update. I wish I had this in May when I joined Hive. Simple layout. The infographic to explain keys is useful. I hope this will help Hive adoption easier. Amazing job.😇

Also the daily funded total on the proposal page is in now :D forgot to mention that :)

Oh yes ..that one too. I will add the line to the changelog in the next update :)

Cool! It's good to know that we now have many options to sign up for new account. This would help new users to be less skeptic in joining hive community. I know most people don't want to pay just to sign up for a program though joining Hive doesn't cost anyone a fortune.

Absolutely brilliant!

Thank you so much for integrating the hiveonboard referral system into peakd...Makes my job so much easier :)

It's nice to see large scale projects to onboard people to hive.

Wonderful to see this happening, just returned from Twitter where this type of on-boarding/streamlining was being mentioned.

Thanks so much will take a look around and start sharing again.

As always, great work!!!

Wow! this make onboarding new hiveans yummy. With the referrals system and, onboarding new hiveans will become my daily responsibility...

It's fun to know i can customize a link new hiveans can actually onboard the hive blockchain with...


Thanks very much sir

Very clean easy to understand referral page.

Good move, now hopefully I don't get Shadow banned on fb when I send this out on my facebook page...

Thank you for sharing such important information. Regards

I might give it a go now and then. And hopefully will be helping the community with that.

Great innovations. Thank you!

Wow this is great work, thanks a lot for your hard work.

Keep up the good work Team PeakD

This is so awesome! Thanks for all your hard work on this.

Great work guys. Once we crack the on boarding nut the flood gates will open.

Beginner here. Hope to enjoy

Can I set someone as my beneficiary and then it stay locked like that forever? So I don't have the ability to change them as a beneficiary? Does the referrer beneficiary stay forever?

Not sure what you mean with 'locked'. The value is stored in the account metadata so it's always possible for the account owner (with the active key) to remove it.

So can the account owner remove a beneficiary if they only have their private key?

Yes, it's always up to the owner of the account.

even if they only have logged in with the private key? and only have access to the private key?

What do you mean with 'private' key. Each key has a private and a public, so they can change the beneficiaries if they have the private active key. Not with the private posting key.

That's what I meant, the posting key. Say I create an account for a friend and then only give them the posting key. They won't be able to remove me as a beneficiary? As I have the active key? Thanks

Yep, correct. Of course this way they will not be able to use their wallet either.
