Hi there my Hivean friends and followers!
I just wanted to start working on editing and renaming my banners, logos, profile info etc. to complete my transition from Steem to Hive but before I do that, I would like to be sure we will really stick to the new name.
Why should´t we? Well, I recently came across a few articles according to which HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd., a Canadian mining company, doesn´t like the name of our new blockchain and they have even sent us a cease-and-desist letter.
I have not really found much information about this issue here on Hive so please if anyone know more about it or have any updates on how this thing has been panning out, let me know in the comments below. I really hope we can solve this issue without actually renaming our chain.
Here is a few links to articles that inform about this case.
