I vividly remember what happened in March 20, 2020. It's a memorable day for me since my engagement of the cryptoverse and blockchain technology. The first time I would ever own a crypto wallet was when I joined Steemit in January 2018. It came to a point i had literally suspended all other things I was doing to earn money so I can have some more time to make posts and engage others. Time passed and my STEEM power began to grow especially during the bear days in 2019 when only a few persons posted. I won several contests and my SP was growing big time.
After the #steemhostiletakeover, the Hive fork idea was conceived. Though I didn't really understand how it would look like, I in a way trusted the creativity of the witnesses that stood in to run the new hive nodes. I was all out for hive perhaps because I knew there'll be hive-engine and most of the tribes had indicated their willingness to run the hive nodes. At that time I had a taste of second layer investment (curation) on hive and how profitable it could be.
It was until few hours after the Hive hardfork that I discovered that my Steem wealth was just doubled. Days after the fork, there was a high competition in the prices of both STEEM and HIVE and sooner, Hive kissed the $0.97 price value. The duplication of our balances on the Hive blockchain made me to powerdown my STEEM which were converted to Hive into my Hive-engine holdings that has been the base of my investment on Hive.
A few young people around me who had joined Steemit then, entered a new dimension of their financial life. Yes, most of them had their new gadgets -phones, personal computers, and especially personally belongings and consumables that were very useful during the lockdown that came in in April. One of them quit her job that was paying her $18 as monthly salary working from Monday to Saturday (8:00am to 5:00pm) and with hard labour. She was able to afford a rent for her mom and siblings and thence, started blogging fulltime on hive with about $100 average monthly takehome.

While we may not tell how valuable the LARYNX Miner Tokens would be, one thing is certain that the SPK network has so far been a huge contributor to hive's development and constitute one of the top stakeholders of Hive. I can tell how much great value that layered concept of video tokenization and rewarding would bring the masses to Hive and that on the long runs means well to all HIVE holders. You may have to read the SPK Network Light Paper to get more information on the operations and usecases of the coin and other assets associated with the SPK network. This video by @theycallmedan would also be a good information source.
Cryptocurrency is changing the narratives to wealth creation. I've been a beneficiary to several airdrops and claimdrops on the Hive blockchain at the main and second layer and it feels good to receive new valueful assets just because you've held some other assets in the past. Let's set our alarms to remind you daily that you must have some tangible amount of Hive in your account to qualify for more LARYNX Miner Tokens claimdrops.

Hive-Engine is a smart contract platform on top of the Hive blockchain. It allows communities and businesses to build their own tokens, which are then built on top of the technology provided by Hive. This is the ultimate layer 2 solution. The token created on Hive-Engine is then immediately tradable with Hive on their exchange.
