Welcome to #HivePUD 🚨UPDATED🚨 (Hive Power Up Day), August 1st 2021

Welcome to HivePUD Updated August 1 2021.jpg


While technically in my little corner of the world there's still a handful of hours left in July (I'm posting this at about 8pm EST), #HivePUD for August 1st 2021 has already arrived in other parts of the world. 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 "new" (as of September 2020) Countdown Timer on the hivebuzz.me site, courtesy of the awesomesauce team at @hivebuzz!


  • If you want to qualify for the AMAZING Hive Power Up Day badge(s), your power up must happen during the 24 hours of August 1st, 2021 according to UTC time.


  • 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 August 1st, your local time.


The reason I added the 🚨UPDATED🚨 thing to the title 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. The details are in this month's announcement post, along with the news that...


I'm also keeping this as brief and to the point as possible, since my usual wall o' text posts have been a bit much to get through for some. I'm trying to find that balance between friendly and informative versus matter-of-fact and not-as-informative. 😄


What are the rules to win prizes for HivePUD?

The requirements are:

  • 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 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.


For more information, including the current list of prizes

Please check out the brief Announcement post from last week, which includes info about the new drawing being offered this month to people who power up & post, but don't end up qualifying for the prize pool because they didn't meet the other requirements.

For more information about Power Up Day in general, check out last month's Announcement post (soon to be replaced with a HivePUD FAQ).


Timeline Reminder

  • Power up Hive on August 1st 2021
  • Post about your power up on August 1st 2021
  • Unofficial winners list will be posted August 3rd or 4th (allowing time to correct for errors/omissions)
  • Official winners list will be posted on August 5th, after which sponsors will disperse prizes

OH! One last thing - I know a lot of people like to use the blog thumbnail graphic from this post for their own Power Up Day posts, so here's another version of the one above without the "Updated" stuff on it.

Always keeping everyone informed, thank Traci even though a tad late today, let's see what can be done...

Happy New Month!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support during this month with your delegation, your automatic vote for my posts and now this, millions of thanks for this and more because I know that the work behind these publications is of little ants.

My account grew a lot since July 1st until now and you did your bit to make it happen. Infinite blessings to you @traciyork

Hello @traciyork!
I think by mistake you sent me 11.111 HIVE POWER, as i was checking my wallet i just notice that... and there are not even delegated, are send straight to my Hive Power!

Hey @geom!

Nope, not a mistake, but thanks for shouting out, as well as the inadvertent reminder that I've been meaning to put together a comment to drop on people's profiles when I power up for them on #HivePUD, so they understand what it means. 😂

So, Happy Hive Power Up Day! Hope you enjoy the little Hive bump. 😊
(yeah, my comment needs work...lol)

I see... i also got a comment on my latest post from @hivebuzz:


Initially i got +53 Hive Power as delegation from Splinterlands as i got my Hive account from them. Hive its really an amazing blockchain and i notice that you can find here interesting and super great people that are covering almost all the niches that someone can think of... Pure Dope!
As well you were the first person to greet me here, in my first post!😍
Since Hive Power Up Day is on the first of each month, in September should i sent you back the Hive that you sent me, or how it works?
PS: Your comments are just fine so don't worry...lol
