We started this year with an idea and a roadmap and in only a few months have achieved many of the milestones. We had such monumental gains since the start of the year that even ourselves don't know what the future will hold.
We'll keep it short and to the point.
We are coming up to the date of the Croatia WRC Rally and there have already been much media interest. We have also taken the opportunity to produce a short documentary which will release in the next few days. Following the Croatia WRC we'll race in Sardinia.
- The car will race in Croatia without dapp stickers, as just Hive
- Dapp stickers will be added for Sardinia and rotated on a per-race basis so all interested dapps have a chance to be represented without being crowded
We won't spoil the video reveal here and will release it shortly on the @hiveio account.
What began with social impact community wells in Ghana has very recently grown not only in magnitude locally, but also has spread to other parts of the country. We are looking forward to a series of events there.
- Another borehole will be built in the Kumasi area; work will start next week
- Tekna, a payment dapp on Hive, is organizing an expo in Accra
- 'Hive Students Hub' is an educational project, similar to 'Hive Goes to School' (Venezuela/Spain), are to be launched in the North
This is all planned for the remaining of April and May. Many more great things are to come in the months ahead.
When we heard that there were Hive members interested in setting up a street workout project in Venezuela we had no idea it would become international in only a year. Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Cuba and Spain are all part of this season's lineup. This has become a global phenomenon due to the sheer determination of the organizers and athletes.
A tentative starting schedule is as follows.
We started in the Sucre state of Venezuela with an expo about Hive. The team on the ground has since established a deep partnership with the tourism department and local businesses. Hotels, restaurants, excursions and everything in between can now be paid for with HBD. Hive is now the dominant blockchain solution for the entire state's tourism industry. Those wearing Hive shirts are being stopped in the streets and asked about Hive.
Now let's take a step back from the key projects we all know and follow and talk about conferences. The following are our major initiatives but several smaller conference are projected to take place and have taken place so far.
Hive was once again represented at a major blockchain conference, Expo TechnoDigital Lidotel in Barquisimeto. This is a massive multi-day event with not only presentations but also a Hive booth and an exciting masterclass. The event is on at this very moment.
14-16 April at Lidotel Barquisimeto, Venezuela
We will be presenting as speakers and sponsors at Blockchaincon LATAM 2023 in Lima, Peru. Not only will be showcasing Hive but we will also be forming lasting relationships not only with the tech community there but also with businesses. We plan on paying for the majority of our activities with HBD without the use of any other currencies.
8-10 June at the Lima Convention Center, Lima, Peru
We will be at Web3 Berlin this Spring. This is a massive opportunity and we are currently designing the best experience possible not only for ourselves and our ecosystem but also for all the attendees we will meet.
10-11 June at The Estrel Hotel, Sonnenallee 225, 12057, Berlin, Germany
We were scheduled to present and represent at Breathe! Las Vegas this Spring but due to circumstances beyond our control the event was pushed back to September. This is an amazing event in which not only Hive, but a group of Hive dapps will form a 'Hive Village' and showcase our growing ecosystem.
13-15 September at the World Market Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
We have made plans for Blockchain Expo, Amsterdam in the Fall. This wonderful opportunity waited since last year when unfortunately timing did not allow for Hive representation. This year we have started discussions early and are quickly developing a sound plan of action.
26-27 September at Amsterdam RAI, the Netherlands
Although there is more region-focused activity than this, we present two of our developing focal areas.
Portugal and Spain
These two neighboring countries are quickly becoming a Hive hub.
We are looking forward to a major push for Hive representation in Portugal starting this Summer. We have formed a relationship with the Associação Atlética de Águas Santas as a sponsor. Starting August 1st all European Handball fans will find Hive branding at the games in Porto. This is just the beginning and we are looking forward to more opportunities to come, including a WRC rally in Porto next year.
Hive keeps focusing on Spain in various forms and we expect to have a range of events take place there. Earlier in the year we started with 'Hive Goes to School' in Madrid and are now looking for SWC Spain to take root. We are also deliberating conference and expos.
Philippines and Thailand
Through the initiative of the Dbuzz team we have found ourselves the stars of several expos and meetups. The Bull and Bear (PH), Block and Chill (PH), and the Technology Tech Show (TH) all saw Hive and Dbuzz get a phenomenal reception. These are just the start of an expanding lineup that we hope to see progress into the Summer.
This is an area of the world where there is much interest in Hive from the innovation and investment angle in particular. We are starting fresh there with organic events that can only grow.
Hive is just a protocol without it's dapps. The dapps and our community members are the heart of Hive. We want to always reiterate that we greatly appreciate your innovation and dedication to the Hive ecosystem.
Please remember that as always, Value Plan welcomes -- and we mean 'welcomes' with all the bells and whistles -- dapp-focused events. To fall under the Value Plan scope an event or presentation should be 50% or more about Hive. When you represent your dapp, business, project, or service on Hive you are effectively showing the power of Hive.
We'd like to remind everyone that meetups are in Value Plan scope as long as they are inviting to non-Hive members and inclusive. We want to celebrate and share between ourselves but also with others who haven't yet discovered Hive.
How to get involved? It's easy:
- Have a clear vision and plan and then reach out to one of the Keyholders
- We will work together to realize the event or activity to the extent of our abilities and scope
- Remember that even if an event cannot be funded, Hive branded merchandise is always available
We will leave this here and move on to the financials.
We are presenting here the raw transaction log for your consideration. We will do our annual report at the end of the year as always.

Due to the uneven schedule of when conferences and new major initiatives must be paid for, we must modify the expected proposal schedule and amounts. We are currently projecting to dedicate up to 800,000 HBD until the end of the year.
We are asking for 250,000 HBD to continue Hive promotional and marketing initiatives. Thank you for your consideration.
And we leave you with a parting thought: Let's remember to collaborate, listen and ensure we move on in the year with all dapps and projects strengthened and empowered. This includes service-oriented projects and on-topic initiatives. Hive progresses through unity despite of everyone's diverse background and point of view, but we are a community first. There is no competition.
