What is Hivemicro.com ? 



This will be a review of HiveMicro which is also known as Hive. Hivemicro.com or Hive is a new website that pays you for doing micro jobs online. These micro jobs are similar to the jobs you may do on GPT platforms like Crowdflower. Currently, the only available type of tasks HiveMicro has available is content moderation. They also promise to soon offer text translation and text classification micro tasks as well. These tasks also are not timed and allow you to take your time if you want. However, if you want to make any real cash with Hive Micro you are going to want to do these tasks as fast as you can without messing up. Messing up is a really big deal because you are given an accuracy rating by Hive Micro and if you fall below their standard they will not pay you.

What is the Content Moderation Micro Job?

The Hivemicro Content Moderation micro tasks will consist of you rating images and classify them into particular categories.

HiveMicro Review

Update: Hive Micro recently add an extra category to the content moderation tasks called Marketplace Banning. Hive also added a General Jobs section which is basically temporary tasks that come and go. At the time of this update, they had one job called General Race Appearance.



They now have three different type of content moderation tasks in their general jobs area, NSFW Images, Market items, and Marketplace Banning.



For example, NSFW consists of rating adult content based on four categories. They are as follows

Clean, Explicit and violent, explicit and sexual and PG-13.

Hive Micro Online Training



It's completely free to sign up for this site. You will have to provide them with your Name, Phone Number, Email, and even Home address. Also, they will ask you for your Paypal Infomation but I was able to skip this step until requesting payment. Since doing the micro tasks for this site entails doing things such as rating explicit content you must be at least 18 years of age to join. The first thing you will have to do after you sign up is to do their online training for one of the content moderation micro jobs. You will review the guidelines and learn what is expected of you. Then do a practice module and then a test module. After successfully completing all of this you then can move on to the paid rating.



Update: Hive has recently made a major overhaul to their micro tasks again. Now after you complete a tutorial you will unlock tests for paid jobs. This is much like how it was before. Only now you will receive badges upon completion of tutorials and tests. Competition of the tutorial is a prerequisite badge you must unlock before you are allowed to attempt to unlock the new test badge. All jobs now have specific badge requirements in order to complete tasks. Update: They have added quite a few different new types of tasks that come and go. None of the tasks seem to pay more than $1.90 which is for TV Labeling v2. Although it's nice to have more tasks available it's not so nice to see the pay go rate go down since it wasn't the highest before. For example, NSFW Images has gone from $1 per 1000 tasks to $0.50 to now $0.10! This tasks literally used to pay 10 times as much.

Hive Micro Pay Rate


NSFW Images: Pays $0.50 per 1000 Images rated. ( The rate for NSFW used to be $1.00 per 1000)
Update: New rate for NSFW Images is $0.10 per 1000 Images rated.

Market items: Pays $2.00 per 1000 items rated.

Marketplace - Item Banning: Pays $2.00 per 1000 items rated.

Hivemicro.com Payments


Payments are not paid out until you meet the threshold of $20.00. Once you get at least $20.00 you will be paid the following Monday via Paypal.
How do I get paid?

Update: Hive Micro has recently has changed how their payments work. They are now requiring members to authenticate their Paypal account. If you do not do so you will not be about to receive payments. The reason they gave for this change was to improve the quality as well as the security of the microtask site. But they also promise that there will be additional forms of payments available such as Bitcoin soon.


HiveMicro is not a scam and currently, pays its users. With that said this micro job site is still very new and should be approached very cautiously. Sites like these, often in the beginning pay their users than all of a sudden stop. Users have also reported HiveMicro banning them after they fall below accuracy very quickly.

Update: As of this update Hive Micro is now 1 Year and 319 days old. Usually, if sites like these are scams that will shut down within the first year. Still, the site is yet to turn 2 so there is still a decent chance they could still fail as any other young company. If they were to fail their users would likely not receive any payments that are due. This is why I would still recommend withdrawing any payment due as soon as you reach the 20 minimin payout threshold. But users should feel a little more ease now that the site has been around for almost 2 years paying its users.

Hive Micro Review | Conclusion


As I mentioned before I would be cautious about using this site until it is better established and has a proven track record of paying users over time. However, so far the micro job site is on the up and up and seems like it may be a promising site. In my opinion, their pay rate is a little low. HiveMicro disappointed a lot of their users when the cut the pay rate in half for the NSFW micro job. I would like to see them correct this and add higher paying tasks. With that said if you're in the need for a way to make some extra cash online for simple micro jobs, HiveMicro may be your ticket.
