HiveBot Discord Notification Service

One of the things I quickly realized with the switch to the Hive blockchain was how much I previously relied on GINAbot's discord notifications to keep on top of what was going on! Well, that and the fact that I have to replace a lot of my wardrobe...but that's a topic for another post.

Since I'm not sure when GINAbot will be ported to Hive, I went ahead and set up a quick and dirty Hive Discord notification service over the weekend simply called HiveBot. I've been told that GINAbot should be ported over to Hive soon, in which case then you'll have a choice of two services for Discord notifications, and more choices is rarely a bad thing. In the meantime, feel free to use HiveBot for your Hive-related notifications on Discord.

It is currently available in the following Discord servers:

To set it up just go to one of those servers and type !hivebot into any public channel or message the HiveBot#8153 account directly. It will respond with a private link valid for 24 hours that you can use to set up the types of notifications you wish to receive. It currently supports notifications for the following operations:

  • Transfers
  • Witness Votes
  • Top-Level Posts
  • Comments
  • Replies
  • Votes
  • Hive Power Delegations
  • Follows
  • Vesting Withdrawals (a.k.a. power down payments)
  • Delegation Returns

You can get notifications when any of the above operations is either sent or received by any account. You can even get notifications for accounts you don't own since everything is public on the blockchain. You can also set a "minimum" amount for any of the above operations, so for example, you can set it to only send notifications for transfers above 1 HIVE/HBD, or for witness votes with more than 100 HP (combined between owned and proxied HP).

If you would like any additional operations added, or any other features, please let me know and I'll try to get them in asap! Additionally please keep in mind that this is something I just threw together quickly over the weekend, so please let me know if you run into any bugs or issues and bear with me while I get them fixed.

That's all for now. Hope this helps you keep on top of what's going on on Hive!
