Don't miss the opportunity to get your PUM badge and the Hive Power delegation that comes with it. But don't take it for granted as many of the participants of the previous editions have admitted how difficult this challenge is.

The goal of the Power Up Month is to reward those who do regular power-ups rather than a single power-up like many users do for Power Up Day for example.

Let's go for another month!

February 1st is not only the Hive Power Up Day but also the start of a new Hive Power Up Month!

How to get the Power Up Month badge?

This new PUM challenge will start on the first day of the month and will last all month. Here are the rules:

For each day of the month, you will have 2 options:

Option 1:

  1. you publish a post and set the payout mode to 100% HIVE.
  2. Your post must generate a payout to be eligible (i.e. get a few upvotes)
  3. You can't set someone else as the beneficiary of your post. It is about powering up your account.
  4. You cannot upvote yourself

Using this option is also a good way to get the Monthly Author badge as well. ;)

Option 2:

  1. power up at least 1 HIVE.
  2. You cannot start a powerdown during the month.

This option is useful if have no idea what to write about someday or just aren't a blogger at all.

You can use either option, or both, and can switch from one to the other as the days go by.

Track your progress

Go to your HiveBuzz board and click on the badge of the current Power Up Month. You will see a calendar appearing in addition to the description with all the actions you have taken that influenced your participation in the Power Up Month.

Example taken from a participant from a previous edition.

For the current day (circled in blue) and all previous days, the following symbols may appear:

You published a post with the 100% Hive power mode
You made a Power Up of at least 1 HP
A Power Down was applied. This disqualifies you for this PUM

This will allow you to accurately track their progress throughout the month.

HiveBuzz will use UTC date and time to validate post and powered-up dates. Therefore, check your timezone and convert your local time to UTC before doing so!

Strictly follow the above rules and this badge will be yours!

Additionally, you will also receive a Hive Power delegation upon successful completion of the challenge. The more badges you collect (Power Up Day, Power Up Helper and Power Up Month), the higher our delegation will be!

Both badges and delegations will be distributed after the end of the Power Up Month.

Be ready to Power Up!

Definitely 👍🏻 Same procedure as every 1st of the month!

Exciting! I think I’ll get my first PUM badge tomorrow 🤩 Is there a requirement to write about PUM too, like with PUD?

Good luck with the PUM. It is not mandatory to write a post about the PUM to participate in our challenge but feel free to do so.

I totally did 😁 That was too exciting not to share with everyone 🤩

Hoping for many more PUM badges this year. Once it’s a habit, I’ll do it with my eyes closed 😉🤞

Same here! I'm really excited and happy :D Congrats to you friend 🤝🤗😁😁

And there it is! Brand new PUM badge arrive 🤩 Did you get yours?

Congratulations 🎉 if you got yours too 🤩

Yessss thank you so much and congratulations to you 😄😄😄

And to you too! Hopefully another one this month 😁

Unfortunately this month I will be extremely busy at my new work, away from the internet, to be honest, I will be away for the next 4-5 months and just post and comment to the community whenever I can find the internet. That is why I downloaded the mobile app, at least I can read and comment on some people. 😁😁

Ahh, that’s a shame! Ecency app is great though. You can post, comment and even power up too. I use Ecency every day

I am ready!

Good luck with the PUM @videoaddiction

Yes am getting ready for the power up

Excited about this !!🥳

I hope by the beginning of next month I’ll be able to gather enough resources to be eligible to participate.

A first PUM badge would look good on my profile 🥳

Nice @thisisnativeboy! It is great to see you are doing your first steps on Hive! Great work!

gogoogo to powerup now

Let’s hope February will work out, January I missed some days on our road trip as no mobile reception or internet for days… 😉 but part of adventures… 🐝🐝

Stop traveling! Stay home, power up, and get that PUM badge 😂

Hahaha 🤣 yep, I should actually. !LOL
Was moving countries and did so with a long road trip north, loved every moment of it 😁
Will get this month the badge 🤞🏻🤞🏻 as I have internet again since yesterday 🎉 what does make things a bit easier 🤣😂

I sent my girlfriend a 'Get Better' card.
She's not sick, or anything - I just think she can get better..
