I think there should be a way to redeem (some sort of) Account Creation Tokens without being required to have more than 5,000 Hive Power first πŸ€”

in D.Buzz β€’ last month

Claiming an Account Creation Token (ACT) using Resource Credits currently requires about 6,470 Hive Power at 100% Resource Credits. πŸ€“

I want to pay for Hive Power delegation just for the Resource Credits, but paying 15% APR on #DLease just for ACTs looks too expensive. πŸ’ΈπŸ™

Sort: Β 

I believe RC pools were being talked about in the future but I am not sure if it is part of the next hard fork. This means you might be able to get RCs without having the HP for it.

That's really a great idea for me. πŸ€” I just don't know why someone would not want it implemented. πŸ€”πŸ€”

Its on the schedule of being added to relieve the HP issue and let people retain their voting values. It should be either during the hard fork or soon after the hard fork to deal with a huge influx of users when they do come.

Yep, been there as well :(
I chose to spend 3 Hive to create another account on my own with the regular account creation, not using ACT...

Well I think you could of made an account specific to DBuzz and other stuff and used their referral. But I do not know if there are limitations there. But I think they would not mind if you use it to interact with their community and use their front-end as well. Plus using it for other stuff afterwards is just a bonus.

Do you mean using the Hiveonboard website, which is recommended by D.Buzz for new Hive users? πŸ€” Since it requires phone verification, I am discouraged from using it. πŸ™

Ah I never used it so I didn't realize. I guess the other way is to use LeoFinance and create an account using Metamask or Twitter.

using Metamask or Twitter

I have no accounts on either. πŸ˜¬πŸ˜…

It's either I find a way to use 3 HIVE to create a new account (because I can't login to #HiveInvite and BlockTrades charges 4.1 HIVE) or create a free account using #Ecency. πŸ€”

They don't require KYC. Just make a random email and make an account if you want to save on 3 HIVE.

Do you mean I could use a random email on Metamask or Twitter, then download Metamask or provide profile information on Twitter? πŸ€” I know I can, but it looks really inconvenient. 😰 I also know I can just use an email address to create a Hive account through #Ecency. πŸ™‚

Yea its a round about way but you do get an HP delegation but I am not sure how it compares to eccency's HP delegation.

What dapp did you use to use 3 HIVE to create another account? πŸ€”

I noticed that #Ecency offers free Hive accounts by just using any email address. πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

No dapp, I used beempy from command line.
Right, ecency might be an option as well, not sure if this is allowed for secondary accounts or if they have a 'one account per person' policy?

I have not seen a "one Hive account policy" on #Ecency anywhere. πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ I am considering creating a secondary account there, primarily to reserve some of my HIVE for my mini-contest rewards and Hive Power Up Day (for the 1st of each month). πŸ€”
