HivePUD is here January 1st 2023 blog graphic.png

Happy New Year! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฅ‚โœจ It's still not midnight in my neck of the woods (I'm posting this just a bit after 9pm EST), but I've seen lots of Hivers shouting out with 2023 greetings, which means #HivePUD for January 1st 2023 has also arrived. If you want a super cool way to check if it's officially in your area according to UTC time (which is how the Hive Buzz badges are determined), be sure to check out the Countdown Timer on the hivebuzz.me site (under the green "Power Up" tab), courtesy of the awesomesauce team at @hivebuzz!

HivePUD TL;DR

  • If you want to qualify for the AMAZING Hive Power Up Day badge(s), your power up must happen during the 24 hours of January 1st 2023 according to UTC time.

and/or

  • If you want to qualify for the #HivePUD prize pool, your power up and post must happen (according to criteria listed below) during the hours of January 1st 2023, your local time.

ย 

AND PLEASE NOTE:

I did some tweaking of the 4 traditional HivePUD posts a year ago last month, and back in April 2022 I decided to tweak a bit more by combining the usual first two posts (Announcement & Welcome to HivePUD) into this one that I publish around the first few hours of the start of the first each month. In addition, I'll do some extra signal boosting of the "HivePUD is coming" posts done by others instead, as it seems like it will be the best way to spread the word. ๐Ÿ˜Š

And in July 2022, I decided to tweak the rules a bit, for the first time in forever - be sure to check them out below.

Oh and in October, because of the continuing (and awesome) uptick in participation, I tweaked the timeline of the Power Up Day results to give me a couple extra days to put things together after my numbers guy sends me the raw data.
ย 

Now, for the basic Power Up Day details...

ย 
ย 

What is HivePUD?

Hive Power Up Day happens on the first of every month. Those who are able to, take this time to power up some Hive, and/or cancel their power downs and pause trading/selling for the 24 hour span of the day.

If you'd like more in depth information about Power Up Day, please check out this post from July 2021.

ย 
ย 

What are the rules to win prizes for HivePUD?

UPDATED As of July 2022

The requirements are:

  1. Your reputation must be above 39 and below 70 and your account must be in good standing with the community.
  2. Your total HIVE Power (before the 1st) must be more than 100 and less than 8000.
  3. You must power up at least 10 Hive on January 1st (and must NOT be powering down).
  4. You must write a post about your power up on January 1st with the tag #HivePUD (International) or #HPUD (Hispanic) as one of your first 5 tags (tagging only in the body of the post doesn't count).

ย 
To be included in the winners list, you must meet all four requirements above. The order of the list (first place, second place, and so on) will be determined by the biggest PERCENTAGE of Hive powered up, not necessarily the most Hive powered up.

And to make it clear what's changed about the rules, I've bolded the two bits in rules #1 and #3. I think it's pretty self-explanatory why I've added those in, but please feel free to shout out if you any questions about it.

I powered up. I did the things. I talked about Hive. I chatted with Brad about the benefits of HPUM. I pondered all things Power Up related. And then a thought dawned on me: Traci must be an Orca by now ๐Ÿค”

And then I checked... and you did it: You're a f*cking orca!!!!


Woooooooo hoooooooo

Hi @traciyork, I certainly could not miss participating in the first Power Up of the year. Happy 2023. Reading the rules I should not be entitled to participate in the competition as I have more than 8000 HIVE, but that matters little... viva HIVE. Hereโ€™s my partecipation, and thank you for the work you are doing
https://hive.blog/hive-122221/@stefano.massari/01-01-2023-hive-power-up-day-en-it

First day of the year and such a great day to power up some Hive! I'll be happy to be a dolphin today ๐Ÿ˜‚

Happy New Year, dear Traciyork! Since I have learned about HPUD, I really do not want to miss the fun. Today is memorable since it is the first day of the new year together with HPUD and HPUM. More blessings and I wish you more success. Thank you so much for the enthusiasm and motivation for one and all in the blockchain. Keep safe.

Happy New Year to lovely lady Traci and the Team who back and keep HivePUD on track!

May 2023 bring growth to Hive as never seen, well done!

Here is my entry for this final power up

Another month and another year, how nice๐Ÿ˜

Thanks so much for running these ๐Ÿ™Œ This will probably be the last time I'm eligible, as I almost have a rep of 70 ๐Ÿ˜‚ But that's also something to celebrate :)

Hi @traciyork, congratulations on your badge, and happy and successful 2023.
This is my Power Up Day post for the day:
https://ecency.com/hive-122221/@annafenix/my-first-power-up-day


Happy New Year, Traci! @traciyork

Holy Moly, woman! I forgot New Year and PUD were today. No lie! ๐Ÿ˜ข That is so lame, I am ashamed. Please accept an extra 20 Hive donation for penance, randomly given out to another, even though the crime is unforgivable.

Not lame at all, lovely lady! I added this as a prize in the Official Results post (with the caveat it was, "THIS MONTH ONLY!" and I'll send the 20 Hive tip along on Monday, when I do the drawings (I'll be gone most of tomorrow). Thanks so much for your amazeballs sponsorship, dear Denise!

It's my pleasure!! Love to you and yours!!
Happy New Year!! โค๏ธ
