My First Caturday on the Hive Blockchain! ๐Ÿˆ 2020-03-21

in Caturday โ€ข 3 years ago

Hello, Hiveians!

I wanted to make my first post on Hive, and while I'm at it, I might as well make it a #caturday post. ๐Ÿ˜บ

Leaving Steem Behind

I have decided to leave Steem behind and use Hive pretty much exclusively. Over on Steem, I have pulled all my delegations and have started to power down all my accounts.

I will try to sell most of my Steem and buy Hive instead. If I succeed at that, I'll be able to give out decent upvotes since I'll have double my Hive Power more or less.

I have made an account at, and since they have listed both Steem and Hive, I think it's going to be a good place to trade my Steem for Hive. They also have an affiliate system. Here's my affiliate link if you want to give it a try, too:

There isn't much movement on the market yet, but it hasn't even been open for a whole day yet, so we'll see how it goes in the coming weeks.

The Caturday Community

I will continue to run the Caturday community on here. I invite everyone who is interested to subscribe to this community and post your best cat related material here.

Let me know if you would like to get a title next to your name when you post in this community, and I'll add it for you.

I'm still going to be active in the Caturday Discord Server, and I'll continue to look at the posts that are promoted in there. I will prefer posts that are on the Hive blockchain. I'll still look at the Steem posts, but since I'm powering down over there, my upvotes won't be worth much after a while.

I'll resume my CAT tipping as soon as Steem Engine gets ported over to the Hive blockchain and and the whole @catnet project resumes.

Some Caturday Photos

What's a #caturday post without at least a few cat photos?

Last weekend I visited my friends again, and I took the opportunity to take a few photos while I was there.

Oscar was lying on top of the reclining chair.

After taking that photo, I sat in the chair, and while Oscar was purring loudly behind my head, Skimmer decided to come roll on the floor in front of me.

So me being who I am, I tried to annoy her with my foot, but she seemed to enjoy it instead of being annoyed.



There's always some cat action going on whenever I visit there. You can't get bored when you have three cats roaming around and getting into all sorts of shenanigans around you ๐Ÿ˜. They have a third cat, but she didn't show up this time.

Well, that's all, folks!

All photos were taken with my iPhone 6, and enhanced in Apple's Photo app that come with Mac OS X.

Thanks for reading, and happy Caturday!

Haha , so funny ,Lovely cat

he looks so cute. and Oscar the name that suits her very well. I also like kuncing and maybe tomorrow I will show my favorite kuncing.

I myself made the decision to remain active in both. but I will focus more on hive. and now I have also done power down from some of the sp that I have. and also plan to buy a hive.

Because this is such an awesome post, here is a BBH Tip for you. . Keep up the fantastic work

Oh, so #kawaii Your cat reminds me of my friend`s cat, Tora

What an adorable cat! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
๐Ÿฅฆ !BBH !BEER ๐Ÿฅฆ

Hey @saboin, here is a little bit of BEER from @mizuosemla for you. Enjoy it!

Do you want to win SOME BEER together with your friends and draw the BEERKING.

good to see the cats made the move! ours are here on hive too!

Nice to see you are here as well, @grapthar!


you too! looks like quite a few cats made the journey!

I think a huge portion of our fellow cat lovers made the move to Hive.

I'm still getting some GINA notifications about #caturday posts on Steem, so I guess not everyone made the switch. I have a feeling that some of the one who didn't migrate are probably oblivious to everything that's been happening.

well, there's a lot of automated messages telling them about Hive, so I imagine they'll figure out pretty quickly hehe.

Hehe! Good old Bernie! ๐Ÿ˜‚

hahah, those image spam posts... so glad steempeak lets you collapse a comment, lol.

It's awesome to have you here.

Where is hรฉ ? is hรฉ on noise cash too??



Ok so not me then.

It is not problรจme, have you Seen m'y article Today ? I posted one with aliveandthriving tag

Thank you very much! ๐Ÿ™‚


Good to see you on Hive Sabin. Iโ€™ll have to look into ionomy once I get ready and will use your link then.

Your friendโ€™s cat Skimmer is very much like my cat Sunday.


Yeah. Ionomy is pretty straightforward. I have already converted whatever liquid Steem I had into Hive and powered up a bunch of it. I've hit the power down button on all my Steem accounts, and I'll be trying to convert all of my Steem to Hive. That should make for decent upvotes.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy Caturday!

A few questions you may be able to answer for me. If you were to cash out any currency would lonomy transfer it to a paypal? Does living in Canada change anything with them?
What wallet did you choose on Hive? There are a few to choose from and I didnโ€™t know if one was better for Canadians.

Ionomy doesn't do cash. It's only an exchange for cryptocurrencies. Essentially, you send your Steem, exchange it for Bitcoin, then exchange your Bitcoin for Hive. Or you can just exchange for Bitcoin and then cash that out somewhere else. I use Shakepay for buying Bitcoin or for cashing out Bitcoin. It works through Interac e-transfers. So you could send the bitcoins from Ionomy to your Shakepay Bitcoin address and then exchange them for CAD, and send to your bank account via e-transfer.

For Hive wallet transactions, I installed Hive Keychain and I also use PeakD (the Hive version of Steempeak) as my Hive blogging interface instead of, and it has all the features working, including wallet transactions.

Thanks @saboin! I understand what you said about Ionomy. I have never cashed out anything but would like to try sometime and see if I can.
Iโ€™m using Peakd to post to Hive.

What better than to start with cats on Hive ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ˜€
Happy Caturday!

Glad you are here, too @nelinoeva!


Me too. ๐Ÿ˜€

Yes! For sure. Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Caturday to you, too!

In my cathouse we call that foot love the "Rolly Polee"

I think that's an appropriate name for it. ๐Ÿ˜

Thanks for stopping by, and happy belated Caturday!

Good to see a familiar blog on the #hive side. Didn't know you were into so much cat action... I'm not on discord so live in my own little cat world... Good luck to you .... ๐Ÿ˜ผ

I thought I had seen your name in the Caturday Discord. Maybe I was mistaken. I think some members have promoted some of your posts in there. That might be why I thought you were there, too.

Yeah. I'm happy to see all the familiar blogs on the #hive side, too. There are some that haven't made the switch yet. I hope to see them in the future.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy Caturday!

Thanks ๐Ÿ˜ผ

cute cat ๐Ÿ™ƒโค๏ธ we have 2 at home.

Hi there @saboin, glad to see you have made the move and plan to keep the Caturday community going! Just made my first post for Caturday, as well.

With that post, I also launched the tag #hivecats in the hopes of creating a "connection point" for all the cat lovers and cat fanciers and cat photographers on Hive.

I do hope @fraenk plans to migrate the @catnet and projects over here, but I suppose that also will depend a bit on what happens with Steem-Engine.

Have a great Caturday!


I like your new tag. I'll use it in future posts that have cat related content.

@fraenk made an announcement in the Caturday Discord that he was planning to migrate the project over to Hive. Apart from @cuddlekitten, the kittens are probably going to be renamed since they have steem in their name.

It's going to depend on when Steem Engine ports their services over to Hive. There are a few games that are dependant on Steem Engine as well, and they have to wait to make the switch, too.

I've been lurking in the Steem Engine Discord, and there's talk of having a clone of Steem Engine that would work on Hive. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess.
