- Join Communities: As soon as you signup at hive, the first thing you should do is to join communities. Just search for all the topics you are interested in and join them. It will help you connect with like-minded people and grow faster on the platform.

How To Write Rewarding Articles?
Tip 1: The most important thing that you should keep in mind while writing articles at Hive is that your grammar should be perfect. Now don’t worry if you are not good at English Grammar. You can simply add Grammarly extension and it will help you write with perfect grammar.
Tip2: Make sure you always post similar content. Once you build your audience, they will always expect similar content from your side. But every once in a while you can experiment with different content ideas and get to know what works the best. But I will not recommend doing it too often.
Tip 3: Be consistent. Write as many articles as possible. The more articles you write, the more chance of earning more money. This is the holy grail in article writing and most people fail to do it.
Tip 4: As already mentioned before, never copy a post from someone and post it as your own. The hive bots will always check for copying and can penalize you for doing so.
You can download hive wallet in play store/app store and log in with the Master Password that you received while creating your account. Hive is listed in many major exchanges (Binance, Huobi, etc).
So you can transfer the hive to any of the exchanges of your choice and from there you can transfer it to your bank or convert it to some other crypto.
