The most popular decentralized application (DApp) on Steem – a crypto-driven card trading game called Splinterlands – has become the latest high-profile migration to rebel Steem fork, Hive.
As a result, the number of daily transactions on Steem has dropped by a third to fall below Hive & # 39; s. Hive is a Steem community store founded on the acquisition of Steemit Inc by Tron founder Justin Sun.
The migration was a response to a surprisingly hard fork that was launched in late May to release the tokens of former Steem block validators. Splinterlands wrote at the time it participated in the uprising:
“This presents a huge, and unacceptable risk to the game. We cannot continue to work on a chain where the changes are not public and we do not have enough time to test and monitor. "
