ANNOUNCEMENT POST 🚨UPDATED🚨 - Hive Power Up Day, August 1st 2021

in LeoFinance2 months ago (edited)

Announcement HivePUD Updated August 1 2021.jpg

 
 
In just under a week, the next Hive Power Up Day (aka #HIvePUD) will be here! In fact, the @hivebuzz countdown timer started ticking down the days. Be sure to check it out on the HiveBuzz site (under the "Challenges" tab)so you don't miss your chance to earn a badge while you power up and build your Hive account!

And the reason I did the whole, 🚨UPDATED🚨 thing is, as I've been saying in recent Power Up Day posts, I'm changing things up again a little, thanks in part to some awesome feedback I've received over the past twelve months. One of the bigger changes begins with this post - I'm chopping out all my usual Power Up Day info (other than the basics and the prizes) and it will all go into one FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) post that I will refer to from here on out. Well, once I'm finished writing it, that it... 😂

For the moment, if you'd like more information about Power Up Day, please check out last month's Announcement post. And speaking of, here are some for this month -

 
 

Announcements

  1. The payout from this post (aka the beneficiaries) is split equally between the three winners from July's HivePUD, so @bartolomee, @puza, and @dibblers.dabs (since @podping / @brianoflondon was kind enough to defer the prizes from his 2nd place power up) will each get 33%.
  2. The payout for the next post ("Welcome to HivePUD" on the 1st) will go to the top 3 winners of @victoriabsb's Hispanic #HPUD initiative (also 33% each).
  3. The payout for the Unofficial Winners post on the 3rd or 4th will go to... still thinking about that. It's a tie between the 4th & 5th place winners of both #HivePUD & #HPUD at 25% each, or 100% to @hive.fund (aka the DHF/Decentralized Hive Fund). Please shout out if you have other suggestions!
  4. The payout for the Official Winners post will continue to go to me.
  5. Prizes Added! Since my "One Year of HivePUD Celebration Drawing" was such a big hit, I spoke to @eddiespino, and he said @theycallmedan would sponsor a new monthly prize for accounts who don't qualify for the regular prize pool - see details in the Prize list below.

 
 

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.

 
 

How to qualify for HivePUD prizes

  • Your reputation must be above 39 and below 70.
  • Your total Hive Power (before the 1st) must be more than 100 and less than 8000.
  • You must power up at least 10 Hive on August 1st.
  • You must write a post about your power up on August 1st (your local time) with the tag #HivePUD (International) or #HPUD (Spanish).

 
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.

I’m looking forward to this #HivePUD it should be my first. 😀

I will definitely join this program

Excellent innovations, @traciyork. I love that this gets the "bigger fish" involved in PUD for more than just the badges.

And, in case no-one's told you in a while:

Cant wait for next Hivepud!

😀I can't wait for that 1st to come for my account to be powered with a lot of hives because am new here, and I don't have HIVE yet. Oh, two days to go. Please keep me updated

Hey @apunawu, glad you found your way to the Hive blockchain!

I wanted to clarify that for Power Up Day, most of the Hive that is powered up is by people who own the Hive (either through buying or earning through posting and/or curation) and then power it up to their own accounts. It's not about free Hive that suddenly appears in your wallet on the first (though that would be nice!). I just wanted to make sure you were aware, so you weren't expecting it.

The exceptions are some Hiveans who might power up a small amount of Hive to certain people they've picked (on the first, as well as other random times).

If you have any other questions, please be sure to let me know and I'll do my best to answer them!

Big thanks

HI Traci, since we're restructuring a little and still organising our team, we will no longer be sponsoring PUD. We had very little take up anyway, sadly

I thought that might be the case, @riverflows which is why I did the question mark this month, but I'm still bummed to hear. The invitation is always open, if it's something you want to do again down the road, and best of luck with the restructuring! 🤗

Hello!
Please, how many days are given by the HP delegation?
I have today = 25 days.
When can I expect the delegation to end?
Thank you!

Hi @bartolomee!

The delegation I gave you for the last #HivePUD will end on the 5th or 6th (I usually cancel the previous months after I've distributed the new delegations). I believe @aliento/ @eddiespino cancels his around the same time.

Hope that answers your question - if not, please don't hesitate to shout out again!
