LUVshares has a simple goal and mission: The goal of LUVshares is to spread love around the Hive blockchain.

Maybe you like a certain post, or comment, or image, or the person behind it. Maybe that person could use a little love. Give that post an upvote!

But, you also might give it some LUV. Here's the LUV roadmap.


The LUVbot is how LUV is given out in what might be called Proof-of-Love mining. Unlike Proof-of-Work Bitcoin or Proof-of-Stake Ethereum where your effort rewards you, with Proof-of-Love, your effort rewards others. It is giving and expecting nothing in return.

Anyone with a Hive username can receive LUV. Anyone with at least 10 LUV in their wallet can freely share LUV tokens simply by replying to a post or comment with one of the LUV commands included in the reply: !LUV or !luv or !Luv or !love. Example: "I !love the look on your dog's face!"

The bot allows 3 or fewer "!" commands in a , else the LUV command will be skupped.

Reply with...ResultNote
One of the commands above1 LUV will be sent, from you, for free, to whomever you are replying.How much LUV you can give per day depends on your LUV Level (see below).


  1. You need to have 10 LUV tokens in your wallet as a minimum to use the bot.
  2. With more LUV, you can give more. The amount of LUV per day increases with your LUV Level. (see below)
  3. Sending LUV tokens through the bot does not decrease your LUV wallet amount. The LUV is freely given from @luvshares on your behalf.
  4. These are the current settings. They may be tweaked in the future.
  5. "Ping-Pong giving" is frowned upon. Ping-Pong giving is frequent, repeated, somewhat planned, back-and-forth token giving. Such giving is not the intent of LUVshares.

Check your wallet (or get LUV)

  1. "How much LUV do I have?" - You can check your current LUV amount in the wallets linked below. Or, PeakD can be used by simply choosing "Wallet" and then "Hive Engine Wallet".
  2. You can buy or sell LUV on Hive-Engine, TribalDex, or Leo DEX.
  3. LUV was begun when roughly the first 2,000 LUV were airdropped. The airdrop is over :( , but if you'd like to have your first LUV, leave a comment below with the tag #firstLUV (and ALSO ping @crrdlx). Something might happen. :)


What can this LUV token be used for? This question has been asked and answered here. A summary of some LUV uses:

  1. To spread some love around the Hive blockchain.
  2. To bring a smile.
  3. To meet and engage with other people.
  4. To learn about trading. This is a low-risk way to learn about order books, depth charts, and how to trade.
  5. To collect NFTs. Yes, you can buy-with-LUV in the LUVstore.
  6. To have fun.
  7. To give a +1 reward even after the upvote time period has expired.

Richlist and LUV Levels

Check the LUV richlist. Where are you on the list? This determines how much LUV-per-day you can give for free. (LUV levels were introduced here.)

At this point, almost all LUV that is released into the ecosystem is done by Hive users giving to others using one of the following LUV commands included in the reply: !LUV or !luv or !Luv or !love. Proof-of-Love mining mining in action.

The above graph shows the emission rate of LUV using the bot. Q4 2022

The graph above shows the circulating supply of LUV. Q4 2022

The goal is to keep these rates growing as stably and predictably as possible. From the start, I've tried to be as open and transparent about things as possible as well as being approachable if there are questions. So, I try to update numbers each quarter with a "Quarterly Report." See @luvshares for the latest report.

Art is free-to-use

I draw all of the "art" on @LUVshares and I'll give it "open usage rights." If you'd like to copy or remix any of the images or gifs here or in posts, that's certainly fine. We've had a couple of remixes already and they're awesome to see. Although it's not necessary, it would be nice if you gave a link back to @LUVshares. :)

I have different sizes for these images...ask me.

Loov and Luvee show that getting to LUVtown takes time. But, they'll get there.
