Announcing the development of Peak Vault

in HiveDevslast year



Yes the announcement posts are coming fast and furious and we'll have yet another one early next week about a completed feature.

A core foundation of the Hive community is the ability to choose from multiple tools to get the job done. We have multiple block explorers, multiple content publishing platforms and multiple nodes... this is a part of the concept of decentralization.

Until now there has only been ONE wallet that could be used to safely store keys and interact with various apps throughout Hive. Our entire team uses Hive Keychain extension and are very happy it exists, however for the health of the Hive ecosystem we believe it's VERY important there is a decentralization in choice. Also we believe we have some unique ideas and UX experience to bring to the table.

And that's why today we are announcing that not only do we intend to have a fully functional wallet for Hive but that we are already well on our way with a functional prototype already working as part of the PEAK OPEN PROJECTS.

Let us share with you the progress of Peak Vault and what is in store for the Hive community.


Layout, Signing Basic Transactions, and Sending HIVE

The team has been laying the groundwork needed for Peak Vault. The initial layout of the wallet extension is already complete, along with some backend work needed for the project.

Peak Vault layout

Aside from these, Peak Vault has also recently accomplished a huge development milestone.


Peak Vault now has the functionality to sign basic transactions and send HIVE from the wallet. Check out the illustration below to see Peak Vault in action.


This is just the start of many more developments that will be done. Here is a list of things that was already added to Peak Vault.

Completed activities:

- Key encryption and log in
- Dark mode and light mode option
- Load and view tokens on the extension
- Sign basic transactions from wallet interface
- Send & transfer HIVE from wallet


There's more that will be developed on Peak Vault. We have shared an overview of various functionalities that will be added to the project moving forward.


  • ✅ Encryption
  • ✅ Ability to sign transactions
  • Account import
  • Integration with Hive nodes


  • ✅ Show balances
  • ✅ Send HIVE/HBD tokens
  • Rework the core
  • Allow importing account/keys


  • Other wallet operations (e.g., stake, unstake, claim rewards, savings, delegate, undelegate)
  • Account History


  • Allow website integration with a single generic "broadcast" operation
  • Settings to allow users to save preferences (to not ask to verify every single transaction on the website if only posting key is used)


  • Governance votes (witnesses/proposals)
  • Ledger wallet integration


  • There are lots more unique features that will be added to Peak Vault... stay tuned.
  • This is where the fun starts


If you have been following the development of various Peak Open projects, you are probably already aware by now that we love hearing feedback from the Hive community. This helps us know better what the community needs. So feel free to let us know at any point of the project what you think are missing from the functionalities that we have planned.

These guys don't stop, they are a true production machine. Every week, a new project and all of them successful. Congratulations to the team again, always committed to the growth of Hive since 2018.

Excellent, I already want to use it. I hope it can be ready as soon as possible and give us an A1 functionality.

It looks very good in those screenshots you show us, the interface is nice and intuitive, easy to use.

Awesome, a mobile version would also be very useful, perhaps with the possibility to scan/generate QR codes for Hive payments.

👍🏻 Definitely a mobile App both for Android and iOS is a must. Keychain did the same and mobile is just the way we use the web mainly.

Sounds great team. Some things I would like to see that we see on other wallets/block explorers are summary of sent and received transactions sorted by date.

This is great and you are freaking amazing for building so much awesome stuff for all of us <3

Always good to see something new on hive, I hope everything goes well with the development of the app!

It's purple, I love it.

fantastic, I <3 peakd :))

@tipu curate

Great news to see the Hive ecosystem grow with new utilities. Congratulations for the great job.

This is so exciting to see! As a big advocate for decentralization, it bothered me that only Hive Keychain was a functional wallet for Hive, both on PC and on mobile. We definitely will benefit from more choices, and Peak Vault looks nice!

I love the design, hive needed a wallet with an UI design with softened corners like metamask and phantom for sure.

I wish there was a development with a user-friendly interface in the block explorer area. An uncomplicated block explorer like steemscan and etherescan could be very functional.

wishing you success

didn't use a lot of etherescan but how is it different from this?

I really like Hivehub's block explorer, but I believe there are things that need to be added. A little list of what comes to mind:

  • It is a pity that the hive-engine data is not yet visible on explorer, but I think it will come soon.

  • Users' upvote amount can be shown in $ as on

  • Richlist section can be added to the website.

  • I think that price determination in Advanced Trading is a bit complicated. Ecency's advanced trading section is more understandable in this regard.

  • Data about witnesses can be added to the Statlar section. Also a statistics page on wallets funded by DHF would be great.

Have you considered adding a couple of those items directly to the gitlab ticket list?

Excellent initiative! 💯

When we are trying to get use to one another simpler version comes on board agsin.

This is awesome. Love the look and feel. Thanks for always making the platform better

Oh boy, here we go! This is great news! Another wallet, another simple way to make HIVE transactions. The future is looking BRIGHT!!!!

Oh, this is awesome. I like the interface too.
The dark mode adds a touch of beauty to it for me. Keep building

Is it going to be compatible with keychain API, i.e. a replacement for it?

wow this could have the memo message for 0.1 hive and chrome/android notification i was talki g abiut as a way to ask questions to someone over keychain or now peak vault!

Greetings from Ass Clown Bot! The Bot that calls out total ass clowns on Hive!

When are you going to start writing in proper sentences?
