Feedback from the August 1st Hive Power Up Day

in Hive Power17 days ago

Given the current bear market and the recent Hive price pump, we were wondering how Power Up Day would play out.

We are not disappointed because both the participation rate and the amount of Hive power up have remained relatively stable.

A few words from the PUD organizers


What amazing timing for a big Hive pump - right as Hive Power Up Day was about to begin! It will be interesting to see what effect it has on our numbers this month though - while I don't have any of the data yet, it seems like it was a little quieter as far as new faces go, but it would be cool if we got noisier numbers for the total powered!

Even if we didn't reach new heights this month, from the chatter I've seen on-chain and on Twitter, I'd say we had a more than decent amount of participation, which is not at all surprising given our awesomesauce community.

As always, a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this Power Up Day by powering up, posting, and/or shouting out on all traditional web 2.0 social media. All of those things help shine a light on the blockchain, which in turn helps to grow our community. Special thanks to @hivebuzz for always BEEing such an incredible buzz-maker for Hive Power Up Day, and for continuing to add to the blockchain fun. And here's to all the Hiveans, new and old, who continue to increase their voting power and influence on the blockchain - congratulations to you all!

What are the PUD stats for this month?

As usual, let's start first with those who choose to help others grow, the Power Up Helpers, as those are the ones who deserve the most attention.

We have 11 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 12 people to get their PUD badge.

[REMOVE] Special kudos to those who helped several accounts: @madame-cyntaia

Together, the helpers gifted 262.565 HIVE!

Here is the complete list of helpers and their donations:
@madame-cyntaia (110), @eddwood (60), @blocktrades (11.35), @traciyork (11.11), @oaaguy (10.10), @brittandjosie (10), @darkflame (10), @digi-me (10), @jane1289 (10), @silversaver888 (10) and @synrg (10).

A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.

As you know, the Power Up Helper badge is now a yearly thing, so we have reset our counter for January 2022. Here is the list of benefactors who got the so coveted Power Up Helper badge for 2022:

(List by number of helpees)

This brings the number of helpers for this year to 76 users.

Remember that the number of people you are helping will significantly influence the delegation we will do to you.

Let's now take a look at how you did against the previous editions:

As mentioned at the beginning of this post, we had 411 participants.
who powered up 64502 HIVE. There is a slight dip compared to last month which we most likely attribute to the current bear market. Despite everything, it remains quite decent numbers.

Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:

Congrats to @anomadsoul @accelerator (9000), @beststart (3975), @ctrpch (3955), @leiaviathan (3954,262), @deepresearch (1325,404), @stayoutoftherz (1300), @jeffjagoe (1206,601), @anewclassic (1106,637), @methodofmad (1001), @dontcare89 (1001), @borsengelaber (1000), @fredrikaa (1000), @ph1102 (1000) and @digi-me (1000).

They powered up at least 1000 HIVE and got the Jumbo-Bee badge.

Power Up Month is underway!

Don't forget that the Power Up Month challenge now takes place every month.

If you participated in the Power Up Day, you are automatically "registered" for the PUM and can be rewarded with a delegation of Hive Power at the end of it if you pass the challenge.

See you on September 1st for the next PUD!


Hive super pump during it made it a little crazy!

Of course, some had to make choices.

Thanks for all you do and well done to all helpers and everyone who powered up yesterday:)

You are so very welcome

Great work! Well done to all those who power up!

Thank you for participating in the PUD @mypathtofire. 💪🐝

@stayoutoftherz du hast aber auch fett aufgepowert wie ich sehe. 💪🏻 Sauber!

Ich gebe zu, ich hab´dafür alle Pancakeswap verkauft. Ich werd´ überhaupt demnächst systematisch alle Shitcoin-Positionen abstossen.

Was sind für dich shitcoins? Alles außer BTC & Hive? Oder auch sowas wie ADA, SOL, ETH oder MATIC?

Schwer zu sagen, ADA und ETH nicht, SOL und MATIC schon eher :)
Diese ganzen Defi-Coins sind überhaupt sehr riskant, da Defi letzlich ein Nullsummenspiel ist und davon lebt, dass neue User einsteigen mit frischem Geld. Denn woher soll z.B. eine Rendite von 40% erwirtschaftet werden?

👍🏻 Das stimmt (DeFi). Da kenne ich mich auch zuwenig aus. Halte mich an die Großen. Vor allem BTC, ETH und natürlich Hive. Wobei ich MATIC als ETH „Booster“ und mit seiner NFT Kompetenz auch nicht schlecht finde.

Congratulations to all those who participated and especially to those worthy of note! 🍻

Yahoo! I love that I was included in here.
Thank you very much @hivebuzz I appreciate your efforts.

!PIZZA for you!
