Honey is the community currency of 1hive, it is also an important community boundary. In order to influence the direction of 1hive, honey holders (also called keepers) can stake their honey on proposals.
In order to participate in this process you must first acquire some honey. Currently there are 4 primary ways to do this:
Get validated on brightid and register and claim honey from the faucet.
Contribute to the 1hive community on github, discord, and discourse. These contributions are tracked using sourcecred to generate “pollen”, which is like a contributor score. Honey is distributed weekly on the basis of these scores.
Look for something you can do to improve 1hive and submit a funding proposal to the DAO.
Buy honey on Honeyswap.
