Case Study

Video Editor for an Innovative Social Network

How Banuba Video Editor SDK helped Uhive enrich their users’ content creation experience.


Uhive is a UK-based platform revolutionizing social media. Their vision is to leverage current industry trends, integrate gamification, and establish a tokenized economy, crafting a unique social network capable of rivaling giants like Facebook and TikTok. To accelerate their market entry, the founders opted for a video editor SDK for content creation, and Banuba emerged as the perfect choice.



Uhive is an innovative social network. It has many features that one would expect in 2023, but puts its own spin on most of them. There are unique functionalities as well. Some of the most prominent ones include:

  • Feeds. Unlike its competitors, Uhive has introduced a new exploration experience with special interest-based feeds using the latest recommendation systems, along with a rewarding system.
  • Uhive Originals. The video feed showcases content created exclusively within the Uhive social network, tailored to users' preferences and accompanied by an impressive rewarding system.
  • Valued Spaces (Profiles) and Space Names. Every space and space name holds actual value within Uhive and can be traded.
  • Video Creation Suite. A comprehensive video editor featuring stunning effects, and integration with a royalty-free music provider. This is where Banuba Video Editor SDK demonstrates its capabilities.
  • ChatGPT Integration. Accessible through a menu, it performs everything you would expect from an AI, such as engaging in conversations and providing suggestions.
  • Gamification. Uhive incorporates several gamification features, including leaderboards, badges, and achievements.
  • Decentralized Moderation. Community members themselves vet the posts to ensure fairness and freedom of expression.
  • Marketplace. Users can create and purchase NFTs, and soon they will have the ability to trade spaces and space names.

The tokenomics of the platform is especially thorough and could warrant an entire blog post of its own. It plays a major role in the Uhive interactions and acts as an additional mechanism to attract and retain users.
