Hi! I’m Dima Fern of Hive.
As you all know here mining is NOT profitable. But if you don’t believe this shit I invite you to Public Hive 2.0 testing.
We wanted to improve existing product but the more we changed the more we wanted to improve and that brought us to a completely new product.
Improvements were done in almost every part of the system. Here are the some important changes.
We wanted to make User Experience better and just could not stop. At first we improved half of Hive 1, throwed it away and began just from scratch. And didn’t release until internal satisfaction achieved. Now “look Ma what I’ve got”!
Farms and Collaboration
Each user account now can have multiple farms. You can now split owners, locations, etc. Farms can be transferred to other users as a whole. So now it’s easy to setup a farm for client and make him owner after or organize your own business.
No more EWAL, DWAL, ZWAL in templates. You select coin and put the address. Later we will extend financial instruments in Hive basing on this.
Create a flight sheet for your rocket to fly.
We have created config for almost every pool and miner. If you didn’t find your favourite there is public repository on Git where you can push requests.
And you can have more than 2 miners in one Sheet. claymore+ewbf+xmrig - no problem if you are that crazy.
The rig now stores OC profile for each algo. No more bulk switches of OCs. You can setup each rig individually and it will remember it’s OC when you apply another Flight Sheet.
Autofans can be controlled from the web now, please set the value there if you have used it before manually.
No more forgetting to unset rig active state if you don’t use it. We will bill for the rig only if it was active during the day.
ASICs base price is reduced to $2.
Open REST API
As it was posted before Hive now has open API. Official web application uses it. And you have full access to Hive methods and create any kind of crazy stuff you dare. Like custom monitoring, mobile app, etc.
Topic about API: Hive API v2
Migration from Hive 1.0
We wanted to keep running Hive 1.0 in parallel but that lead us to the problems which are hard to solve with 2 databases, like paying referrals rewards from new to old Hive, statistics, billing, etc. Our final decision is to replace existing Hive in whole. Yes, somebody would not like that and we will hear “previous version was perfect give it back” but it’s evolution, it’s merciless. We are sure you will love the new version after a couple of days cause it’s so much better.
Linux OS is unchanged. All old installations will work. Upgrade is recommended for using 2+ miners, autofans, accurate coin-algo hashes reporting.
All user accounts are migrated automatically. All the mining continue as it was. You will need to set coins on existing wallets, delete obsolete configs, etc. Visit Flight Sheet section to check your miner setup.
How to get to Hive 2.0 Testing Site?
Temporary domain for new Hive 2.0
Login and pass are the same, your data is migrated.
We repeat migration from time to time so be ready that your changes would be lost.
YOU NEW DATA WILL BE ERASED AFTER FINAL MIGRATION TO HIVE2, only Hive 1 data will survive
DO NOT DO ANY PAYMENTS, THEY WILL BE LOST.
API v2 URL is https://api2.hiveos.farm. This is app API, not for rigs.
To connect your rig to new site please run the following in Linux Shell Execute:
sed -i 's/^HIVE_HOST_URL=.*/HIVE_HOST_URL=api2w.hiveos.farm/g' /hive-config/rig.conf && hello
It will change URL to testing server. After the release it will be not required.
To switch rig back to original Hive
sed -i 's/^HIVE_HOST_URL=.*/HIVE_HOST_URL=api.hiveos.farm/g' /hive-config/rig.conf && hello
