After opening a new Telegram channel for verified Hiveterminal users, we’ve seen a rapid improvement in the quality of communication and much better involvement of us all — both our users and the Hiveterminal team. Our team is as hyped as ever to discuss functionalities, plans, and development, as well as to answer support-related questions to the public — just as we discuss with SMEs and liquidity providers at our many events in Slovenia.

But at the same time, we have witnessed the “dark side” of having a community-curated Telegram channel: the impersonations of Hiveterminal team members, misinformation and deceitful behavior of members with ill intentions. This could potentially lead many to believe that certain statements were made by us when, in reality, they were made by imposters — just as we have seen done by a scammer, who tried to impersonate our CMO — which could lead to actions that might be harmful to other members of the group. We cannot have this happen in a community we started so, after a long discussion with our legal aids, we decided to shut down the old Hiveterminal Community channel and put all our attention into our Official channel, where our team (Jure, Ugur, Domen, Gal, Dejan etc.) has already shown its eagerness to communicate with the users.

Due to impersonations, deceitful behavior from some anonymous users, and the potential for harmful consequences for our community members, as seen in the screenshots above, we are shutting down the community-curated Telegram channel.
