This is a guide on buying Blurt token on Hive-Engine quick, fast and easy.

Depositing Hive to Hive-Engine

  • For the purpose of trading on Hive-Engine, you’d need to create an account on the Hive platform.

  • Once you have your account and password, visit to sign in.

  • Input your username and your private posting key in the box provided to sign in.

  • Once in, you need to have some Hive token on the market place in order to trade as that is the native token of the Hive-Engine marketplace.

  • You can easily purchase the Hive token on Binance, or Ionomy and send it to your hive wallet via your username.

  • With your Hive token in your wallet, click on the Deposit tab on Hive-Engine.

  • The next page will ask you to choose the coin you want to deposit. Since you already have Hive, in your wallet, simply choose Hive and click on the “Get Deposit Info” button below.

  • As far as you are logged in with you correct Hive account, you should see two balances. One is your current Hive balance, while the second is your Hive-Engine Hive token balance. On Hive-engine, Hive is known as Swap.Hive.

  • Input the amount you wish to deposit. Take into consideration the 1% fee that you’d have to pay when inputting the amount you wish to deposit.
    Once you have inputted the amount, click on “Deposit Hive” and you’d be automatically redirected to the Hivesigner.

  • All you need to do there is too confirm the transaction by clicking on the Approve button.
    Once approved, you’d get the page below. Click on the "back to signer" to go back.

  • After that, click on the “Transaction Sent” button to conclude your deposit. If you go to your wallet, you should see your Hive token sitting pretty there.


Buying Blurt token

Once you have your Hive token on the platform, it’s time to exchange it for Blurt. To get to the Blurt market, simply click on the tokens tab and search for Blurt in the search box above.

  • Once you see it, click on the exchange button at the right side of the Blurt token. It will take you to the Blurt Market.

  • Since you’re buying, select the price you are comfortable with buying at, or choose the lowest ask price.

  • Input the amount of blurt you want to buy, while taking your Hive balance into consideration.

  • Click on the Buy Blurt button which will take you to the page where you review your order.

  • If you are okay with it, click on the Buy button. You are immediately shipped off to the hivesigner page where you have to approve the transaction.

  • Click on the approve button and go back to the transaction page where you’d click on the “transaction sent” button to conclude the transaction.


  • As soon as you are done, you should see your Blurt token in your wallet.

Sending Blurt to your wallet

If you are buying Blurt in order to power-up so as to increase your stake, or delegate to someone, then you need to send your Blurt token from Hive-Engine to your wallet.

This is pretty easy to do. Unfortunately, you can’t simply click on the withdraw button and take out your Blurt token, you need to go via the sending route. There is a bot that takes care of withdrawals and deposits. To send, all you need do is

  • Visit your Hive Engine wallet page

  • Click on the Transfer button at the right side of your Blurt wallet.

  • A page would come up where you are to fill in certain information such as the username you are transferring to, the amount and the memo.

  • The bot’s name is “blurtlink” so in the space for username, input blurtlink

  • Type in the amount you want to send.

  • The memo input bar is where you’d input your blurt username without the @.

  • Once you’re done, click on the “send blurt” button and approve your transaction on Hivesigner.

  • Once you visit your wallet, you should be able to see a receipt of some blurt from blurtlink.


  • For withdrawals below 100 blurt, the fee is 1 blurt. Once it exceeds that, a fee of 1% is charged.

That concludes it for our tutorial on how to purchase Blurt from and send to your wallet. Thank you for reading.

Thankyou for this tutorial, very useful, just waiting for my power down to finish then can transfer now knowing this.
I just test transferred 130 hive to the blurtlink. How long before I see it in my blurt wallet?
@ajerkoff is this legit?


Are you sending Hive or Blurt via blurtlink??

Hive was sent to blurtlink. I've also swapped some pob for blurt on hive-engine but now don't know how to send that over LOL

Indeed it is tgal.

cool, am almost all unstaked, working on the pobs next

Nice 1 tgal.

The test hive I sent using this method still is not in my blurt wallet however and no answer as to how long it takes from @curtwriter

It's usually almost instant. I'd check this with @yehey in the discord group.

The script is working as normal, though hive-engine are busy processing transactions.

I blog about it to keep our community aware.

No worries, all transactions are recorded in the blockchain and transfer will complete. Even Ethereum transfer takes hours last time I checked.

Cheers, stay safe and stay healthy.

@yehey, being like many of us in the social blockchain world, many of us are ignorant when it comes to how things work. She accidentally sent you Hive thinking you were an exchange that would convert it to Blurt. You can see here she sent you 130 Hive.

Can you please return her funds now that we have clarified what went wrong on her end. Then she can send it to an exchange like Hive Engine and trade it for Blurt and then send it through your service to her Blurt wallet. I apologize for any inconvenience this is to you in your busy schedule, and appreciate any urgency you can place on this as she has been waiting for two days not understanding what has went wrong.

The transaction she did was done since yesterday and it hasn't reflected. Almost about 24 hours.

I equally did a withdrawal from Hive-engine to blurt about 1 hour ago, but no sign of an arrival.

It's not a good one for people who want to powerup for the upcoming Dig airdrop

frot had a similar problem, but I think that was hive, unsure, ask him, I get lost with all that is going on, sorry tgal.

It was hive I sent, getting a tad worried now. Can I also send POB this way if it sorts itself out?

So I took it upon myself to try to help this get fixed. The issue is that you sent your Hive to Blurtlink. I'll explain how that works, as I myself didn't understand until earlier this year.

Hive engine doesn't support a direct transfer to ones Blurt Wallet. Seems ridiculous as I would assume they must have a Blurt wallet themselves to hold the Blurt being traded there.

So @Yehey (a witness here at Blurt) was able to negotiate with Aggroed and his team at Hive engine to allow him to set up his @blurtlink account to act as a bridge between Hive engine and Blurt wallets. His blurtlink account is the ONLY way one has to get Blurt out of Hive engine.

I've reached out to him in another comment here detailing exactly what happened with a snapshot and link to your wallet so he can quickly ascertain for himself what has happened and rectify from his end what is surely a frustrating experience for you. You can see my comment here.

Please also know that if you choose to send your hive to an exchange other than Hive engine using Blurtlink will not work, you will send the Blurt direct from those exchanges to your Blurt wallet. It is due to the restrictive structure of Hive engine that one must use Blurtlink instead of just directly transferring as one does from other exchanges.

I also wish to add that @yehey is considered one of the foundational structures here at Blurt, running not only a witness and his bridge between Hive engine and Blurt, but he also runs the only other front end I'm aware of for Blurt. I've watched so many drop off, and he has stuck with Blurt through all the troubles. He has had my witness vote from early on in my time here, and to put this in perspective half of my witness spots are open. I've no doubt once he has an understanding of what happened per my elucidating it for him, he will promptly rectify what has happened. He is very busy and I think due to that he wasn't fully grasping what happened, and probably just looked and saw you sent no Blurt on blurtlink and dismissed it as anything that might have gotten stuck in his system

Tgal, I claim not to know, I leave that to others,

I admire how much zeal you have towards making blurt better. Thumps up
