SkateHive is based on the anti-establishment roots of skateboarding, and is working at taking back control of our activities from the social media giants, who profit off the monopoly of our content.
SkateHive is build on top of decentralized platforms that allows us to own both our accounts, and our communities, which means rather than advertising on our content or selling users meta-data to generate value, we tokenize the likes, allowing us to retain the value generated by our content, for it to be sold on the free market in the form of a cryptocurrency.
This has allowed this humble community to self fund huge online Games of S.K.A.T.E, giveaways, rewards for contests, events, and even help skaters buy new equipment! Everyone is welcome in this community, so long as you are respectful to others.

How everything started
SkateHive began simply as a community of skateboarders and has evolved into much more! We are people from all walks of life. We are seeking evolution and revolution in the world of action/extreme sports.
At SkateHive we learn from eachother, support eachother, and earn crypto together in a system that we have created and voluntarily choose to participate in. What we are pushing for is finacial independence, liberty, and absolute ownership over ourselves and our data.
Skatehive community utilizes Hive blockchain for content sharing.
What makes Hive unique is that you are in control of your content, no one can delete it (Thanks blockchain) and you can monetize your content from the first minute its online!
In order to post skate content you'll need a Hive account.
Create a Hive account: https://signup.hive.io
If you're having trouble creating an account you can always join the Skatehive Discord and request a Hive account at the #request-account channel.
After you create your Hive account go to https://skatehive.app, a social media platform built upon Hive blockchain exclusively for skateboarding content, log in with your Hive account username and "posting key", click on the pencil icon at the top right corner of your screen, post your content and get rewarded!
Posting content on skatehive.app earns you Hive tokens. You can either sell those tokens for your local currency or keep it in your wallets so you can support other skateboarders.

Why go Skatehive?
Because we want to take back control of our content and data
We are the "products" in centralized social media. Big internet platforms like Instagram, Youtube and Facebook might be "free" to use but they are making millions from selling our data and content.
Have you ever watched The Great Hack or Social Dilemma?
We are not "their" tools and money-making machines
Decentralized platforms like https://skatehive.app don't collect our data and allow us to earn cryptocurrency for our content thanks to their decentralized nature and awesome tech.
In other words, https://skatehive.app is our tool instead of us being the tools in centralized social media (Instagram, Youtube and Facebook).
