UNOFFICIAL WINNERS LIST FOR #HivePUD (Hive Power Up Day) April 1st, 2021

in LeoFinance10 days ago

As always, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this month's Hive Power Up Day, either through powering up, posting, offering prizes, or spreading the word. As I said on @hivebuzz's feedback post...

No foolin', this is the second time in the past few months that Hive Power Up Day happened during an HBD surge (but this one was much closer to the moon!), and I get the feeling the same thing is happening this time around - lots of excitement on Twitter and Hive, but lower numbers of participation overall. However, that doesn't change how awesomesauce the day was - seeing everyone chatting on social media about how excited they are to stake more Hive to me means so much more than whatever the total ends up being.

Thanks to everyone who participated in whatever way (big, small, or in between) to make this day a look forward to every month! And special thanks to @HiveBuzz for always BEEing such an amazing buzz-maker for Power Up Day, and our blockchain home in general!


So, turns out I'm happy to say I was off the mark a bit as far as participation goes! 😊

We had 76 qualifying entries for the prize pool (a bump up compared to 66 in March) with 131 total entries (which is weirdly the exact same number as last month) and 146 posts with either the #HivePUD or #HPUD tags on the first (up a smidge from last month's 142).

As for the overall number, the power ups ranged from 0.061 to 10,000 Hive Power, for a grand total of...

26,667.630 Hive Powered Up!

By comparison, the total in March was 40,236.090. While yes, it's a much lower amount, the overall participation was up a bit, so I still think that number is...



And I know I say it every month, but I'm so appreciative that I have to keep saying it, thank you to @jeanlucsr for bringing the idea to the @hivebuzz team, who then ran with it and made the Hive Power Up Day Badges such a buzz-inducing part of power up day! Every time I think they've outdone themselves, they turn around and do something even more amazing - like, awarding delegations to Power Up Day participants!

Now for the lists!

In keeping with how @streetstyle ran this, here is the UNOFFICIAL winners list for April 1st. If you spot any errors, or your powerup/post was somehow overlooked, please shout out as soon as possible.

On April 5th (late in the day since this post went out later than I wanted, because life got in the way!), I'll post the OFFICIAL written-in-stone list, and at that time the sponsors can award their prizes (the complete list is in the announcement post, and I'll include it again in the Official Winners post tomorrow).

Again as always, special thanks to my numbers guy @abh12345 for sending along the stats, even though he's wicked busy toolin' around Spain in his new-to-him car! He's even added some extra calculations starting last month, which will now save me a ton of time for future power up days. You are truly the numbers man extraordinaire, Asher! 😊



This list only includes those who powered up & posted about #HivePUD and/or #HPUD on the 1st, and met the criteria (reputation between 39 and 69 before powering up; Hive Power between 100 and 8000 prior to the 1st), and posted using the tag(s) so they qualify for prizes. As always, I won't assign placement numbers until the official list is posted, and I've added a separate list below this one for those who posted & powered up, but their accounts were either too big/too small in their Hive Power or Reputation to qualify.

I finally managed to work out the time difference and power up the Hive just in time to get the badge.

a HUGE THANK YOU too @traciyork for the organization of this festive event. A big congratulations and respect to all participants, with the high price of HIVE lately, it was not easy but you did it 👍 Whatever the amount, the fact of doing it and the number of people doing it is the most important 😉 Special congrats to @dodovietnam (I discovered his posts recently) who joined us in February 2021 and is already participating in this fun and awesome event, if you don't know him yet, go check out his posts, he's really great!

Thank you very much @imtase. I found a lot of fun here thanks to the kind guidance and support of other members on Hive like you. Have a wonderful day 🤓🐶☀️!

Jip jip. that was a nice double up :) Thanks for the credits!

Nice content 😍

Lovely to make the list, great to see the % increase too - I think I’ll try do 10% each HPUD now after seeing that!

Awesome job on the power ups team. Let's crush next month and remember powering up every day is helpful as well!

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 51 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

26,667.630 Hive Powered Up!

Awesome for April HivePUD. Each month has to stand on its own with different circumstances. The price of Hive rose steadily which may have contributed to the smaller amount from March.

Anyway, happy to have participated this month. Onward and upwards. April showers bring May flowers. Let's bud all over the place next month.

Thanks for continuing this initiative and for keeping everything in order.

Take care.

Buenas noches 🤗 muchas gracias @traciyork , cada granito aporta un pedacito de amor a la colmena 💖

I should start writing my speech....Thanks so much @traciyork and the team for putting this on and encouraging the community to be more apart of the community.
