What is 1hive and the HONEY token?
1hive is an open community, you do not need to ask permission to join or to become a member. If you see something you think could be improved then you can make a proposal to get Honey and make it happen.
You can also earn honey simply by participating in the community at github, discord ,discourse, by registering and claiming honey via the BrightId faucet, or by providing liquidity on honeyswap and by depositing your LP tokens into the honeycomb farm.
While we encourage people to take initiative as individuals, we also like to work together. Self-organizing “swarms” have formed around specific projects (e.g. honeyswap, celeste, gardens), or work areas (e.g. design, communications, engineering).
If you’re new to 1hive and want to contribute, a good way to start is to find a swarm that interests you and to ask how you might help.

Check this step by step guide
What’s the total supply of HNY and where can I check it? What’s the total supply of HNY and where can I check it?
The current total supply is ~26,445.46 HNY. There is an issuance rate that goes into the Common Pool (currently ~60% per year, a vote will be held soon to cut that to 30%), which is directed by Honey holders and which is expected to decrease over time.
You can check the total supply and the current price at 1hive. org/
How is it distributed?
The issuance and distribution model for Honey is simple: each block new Honey is issued and accumulates into the Common Pool. From there it is distributed using proposals and a staking process called conviction voting.
Anyone can submit a proposal requesting a portion of the Common Pool to be allocated to a specific beneficiary. Honey holders can stake on the proposals to signal their support. You can access the Honey issuance and distribution dashboard at 1hive,org/.
What is the xDAI Chain?
xDai is the name of a blockchain AND the stable cryptocurrency used on the chain. Each xDai token is worth ~ 1 US dollar.
The xDai blockchain is a sidechain of the Ethereum blockchain. It has the same properties as Ethereum, but uses a different method to make sure that transactions are valid and consistent across all nodes in the distributed network.
Currently, known organizations (called validators) transmit and verify blocks every 5 seconds.
This means transactions can be completed quickly and fees for transactions can be minimized, they are just a fraction of a cent. In the near future, xDai will transition to public staking where community members can also run nodes.
How can I claim my first HNY from the faucet?
You have to be verified with BrightID and be sponsored.
You can read this article https:// medium. com/@whitecolidon/the-honey-faucet-ccd0d2a368db for instructions.
After you are verified and sponsored, you can register for the faucet and claim some HNY every 48 hours.
Each period lasts 2 days and you’ll need to register to the faucet each period. By claiming, you’ll automatically be registered for the next period. Not claiming in a period will forfeit the unclaimed amount.
We have set up a bot in the #honey channel that reminds you to claim your HNY.
Note that you will need some xDai to approve the transaction. There is a free xDai faucet where you can get 1ct. This is enough to pay the fees for hundreds of transactions!
How do I get my liquidity onto the xDai chain?
