5 Year Anniversary Timeline: Elastos Hive

Hive is an Elastos ecosystem platform service that provides decentralized data storage and management services. On Hive, users in the Elastos ecosystem can determine where their data is stored – be it on the cloud or a local device – and who can access it. In conjunction with other ecosystem platform services, Elastos Hive plays an integral role in enabling web3 users to own and monetize their data.
