Hive Power Up Day - Let's grow together!

in #hivebuzz4 years ago (edited)

The Hive Power Up Day (PUD) is taking place on the first day of every month and the next one will occurs August 1st.

PUD is a project initiated by @streetstyle and the first occurrence was on May 1st, 2019. For more information about the next coming PUD, you can read this post from @traciyork.

Why participate in the Hive PUD?

For the community as a whole, it's a great way to show support for our blockchain home by staking (aka powering up) Hive and adding to its value.

In addition to making your own vote more valuable and adding to your curation rewards (as well as earning interest on your stake), you will also strengthen your influence on the blockchain.

On top of this, some amazing members of the Hive community are offering prizes that include delegations, Hive giveaways, and other cool stuff to the Hive PUD participants.

HiveBuzz to support the Hive PUD initiative

We have been contacted by @jeanlucsr who wanted to contribute to the initiative in a funny way and he triggered the idea of creating a badge for the Power Up Day.

Therefore HiveBuzz has decided to support his great idea. Together, we created a new badge that you can get if you participate in the PowerUp Day:

How to get your HiveBuzz Power Up Day badge?

  1. As per the initial project rules, you will have to power-up HIVE on the 1st day of any month.

    HiveBuzz will use UTC date and time to validate when your powered-up. Therefore, check your timezone and convert your local time to UTC before powering up!

  2. To make the badge more valuable for those who managed to get it, we decided to set a minimum threshold. Sorry for the smart opportunists, but powering-up 0.001 HIVE won't make the trick. This means that you will have to power-up at least 100 HIVE!

Strictly follow the above 2 rules and this badge will be yours!

Badges will be distributed to the successful participants at the end of the Power Up Day.

We would like to thank @jeanlucsr for his awesome initiative and contribution to the PUD project as well as for the great collaboration we had in the badge creation process. Give him some love (and upvotes)!

Be ready and Power Up!

Super excited about this!

@hivebuzz, thanks so much for making this possible 😍

You're welcome @jeanlucsr
All the credits to you for coming to us with this great idea!

Like I said on Twitter, I can barely form the words to say how wicked excited I am about this, @hivebuzz!

Now I'm really REALLY anxious for @streetstyle to return and see this awesomesauce badge! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone involved, and especially to @jeanlucsr for putting together this amazeballs #HivePUD surprise!

Thank you for being a great backup to @streetstyle. Can't wait to see his reaction too 😉
Meantime, have a !BEER

Sorry, you don't have enough staked BEER in your account. You need 24 BEER in your virtual fridge to give some of your BEER to others. To view or trade BEER go to

Im here again @traciyork!

A nice initiative, but I am not sure how many people will actually qualify. I myself power up at various times throughout the month, and now that all my steem has already been converted, I doubt I will ever have 100 Hive just sitting around doing nothing. Right now yes I have more than 25 Hive sitting, but that is waiting on the next level of a system I am participating in, I normally only have about 20 Hive just sitting around doing nothing. I understand about the 0.001 restriction, but I think a more reasonable amount of 10-25 Hive would be more in line than a 100 Hive amount. I would like to participate and I would like to earn the badge as I am sure many others would also, but that is not going to happen at my level nor those with less than 5000 hive powered up already. Redfish accounts will never get one until they reach a dolphin level, most minnow level accounts will not be able to get one until they reach dolphin level. many Dolphin Level accounts are trying to grow and rarely have more than 25 Hive just sitting around doing nothing throughout the month.

I am a dolphin sized account, (small yes, but still a dolphin sized account), because I powered up as I received keeping only a small amount liquid for various projects and to have a few funds for things I like to do, like gift beginning dustsweeper account to new users, provide a few funds for charity events, and other events.

So I would like to get a badge, but I know based on my powering up above certain Hive level's it is very unlikely that I will ever have 100 Liquid Hive ever just sitting around doing nothing.

Thank you for your feedback @bashadow. It is really very relevant.
This is a very first experiment on PUD for us and we may adapt our rules given the feedback we get the post-event analysis we will do.

This being said, it is also possible to invest a bit by buying the few HIVEs required on the D-day.

You can also attempt a different strategy and play/invest on #HIVEGames to grow your returns. There’s a couple of them if you check out the tag.

But I understand what you mean. There’s always the opportunity to invest directly on this chain... which at this stage is ver cheap.

100 HIVE ~ 22$? It’s a lunch for me.

There is no simple method for me to use. I do not have a KYC account, and will not get one in the near future. If there was a credit card option, I would invest, that is not an option for where I live right now. Buying game cards then selling them is putting a very large premium on the price I would be able to obtain back. I do not see buying 20 dollars of game cards and being able to sell them for less than two dollars a viable option.

One day there will be a simpler way to invest, until then, I will just have to earn some and convert from various forks that take place, putting the so called free tokens to work, even if it is not that much.

I do not see buying 20 dollars of game cards and being able to sell them for less than two dollars a viable option.

I think you are not seeing things the right way... I would recommend you to investigate more, as I don't seem to convince you with my words.

If everything was as simple as, "Click here and you will be rich", then there would be no poor people anymore (nor rich people too)...

Maybe that's the solution! :P LOL idiot of myself just invented the way to solve world differences... - I am being sarcastic by the way...

Ah, some !BEER to cheer you up!

Hey @bashadow, here is a little bit of BEER from @forykw for you. Enjoy it!

Oh, how fun! Thank you for adding this badge! 😃

You're welcome @thekittygirl! Looking forward to see you get one 😉

I had planned to put a small amount of money on my hivepower every month. I'm in. Looking forward to that nice badge.

Can't wait to see you getting your badge @vanje 👍

Thank you sir. You people are the supportive block I have to move forward

You are very welcome @onyeoga! That is our goal! - To keep you motivated ;) See you soon!

Thank you so much
I will be glad to meet you one day.
I cannot wait to see that day.
Thanks once more.

You dit it! 💪 🎉🎉

Thank you for that plan. Its a good start to achieve the happy life.

Cool! I got the nifty badge! Thanks! 😁



What fabulous news @hivebuzz and thank you @jeanlucsr! I know @traciyork will be beside herself!

I love badge! I am so participating! Seriously, I would have anyway 😊

Looking forward to see you participate in @fionasfavourites!
Glad we could make you happy with this initiative 😉

Great to hear that @fionasfavourites!
Looking forward to tomorrow 😊

Well that sounds like a pretty sick idea! Power up, badge up, buzz away!

Posted using Dapplr

Ive been powering up a 100 a day since Monday. I should have 300 or so to power up for tomorrow!
Will the badges automagically hit the hivebuzz dashboards for each profile?

Haha you should have! But now you are prepared for next time! If you power up at least 100 today you will get your batch automatically, yes!

That was exciting to those who have enough HIVE to power up. Wish to have lots of Hives😂.

You can also buy or borrow them @jearo101👍🙂
If not, it maybe a goal for the next month!

Well I plan on powering up when this slow BTC to Hive trade finally confirms... It may end up taking 2 days, lol. I have my eyes set on 10k! After this week, only 2500 to go to get to that target!

Looking forward to see you succeed @thelogicaldude! 👍🙂

Power up 100 Hive for a nifty little badge? I'm in!

Hahaha well done @dannewton! Hope you like your new little badge 👍🙂

You are doing great, I appreciate your support always

Thanks @jearyjoe! we do our best 👍

Hmm I'm going to have to remember this and try power up 100 hive each month.

That sounds like an awesome plan @shmoogleosukami! We will post about it every month to make sure you don't forget 😉

1000 HIVE!!! Really impressive @jacuzzi
Maybe we should create a differentiating badge for champions like you 😉

If all goes well I hope to do the same again the first of next month, I truley belive in HIVE, I also been hard at work on boarding new members! of my goals onboard at least 100 people. :)

Looking forward to it @jacuzzi 👍🙂

Oh my bad, I came to know about this only now. I guess I will start participating from next month onwards. Nice initiative. 😀

Looking forward to see you joining it next month @bala41288! 👍🙂

Yes, definitely not going to miss it. 🙂

Yeap... was the sort of the same thing to me. Will not miss next month, as I power up every day.

That's nice. I was thinking of powering up every day but then I thought if I do it one together, it will give a good feeling than doing it every day as the quality would be huge. 🙂

After I reach my objective for this year, I will probably do a massive day power up. Something in the order of the k's...

I was also thinking about setting an objective for myself as well. It is always good to set some targets and chase them towards that target. Especially when we watch our portfolio grow, it gives a great feeling. 🙂


So cool - I already got the badge for my powering up :)

Hmmm... I guess I was a bit late when I powered up yesterday?


Lol, yes. Power up day is only on the first of the month UTC time! If you havent gotten the badge, you missed the date 🤷 But luckily you`ll have another chance next month 😉

I am certainly looking forward to it, my friend. I've placed it in my calendar!!!
Have a wonderful day, my friend, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

Thank you @silversaver888
Meantime, you can vote for our witness.
You will get one more badge and more powerful upvotes from us on your posts with your next notifications.

Its a great idea for the blockchain and the community. I wish I had that much HIVE to power up.

Thank you @videoaddiction.
If you don't have enough HIVE, you can still either buy or borrow some.
Another solution is to wait a month for the next Hive PUD...

Wow, exelente publicacion, me agrado, gracias por compartir, te dejo mi voto y te sigo.

Nice initiative, I think powering up at least 20€ is a good threshold for the badge. I think it would be fun to do like a series of badges like one for each month or for each quarter to give even more incentive to people to collect the maximum amount of badges.

Thank you for your feedback @walterjay

I think it would be fun to do like a series of badges like one for each month ...

Please stop reading in our todo-list! 😭

Lol 😂

Oh no I just powered up today and saw this right after! hahaha no worries. Darn, guess that means i'll have to power up again tomorrow. What a darn shame that is. hahahahaha

Cool be an idea to power up every day so you never miss any PUD.
A power-up a day keeps the inflation away 😉

Ok. I'm making a new rule and only powering up once a month on PUD!

I recently powered up too, but it wasn't even 100.. because I powered up in sperts here and there prior to this.. New initiative for me now! I won't see the badge this round (unless someone wants to donate 100 HIVE For me to power-up <3)

Oo... you know, people who delegate more than 100 HIVE on the first of the month and still hadn't removed it the following month should get the badge, and the delegatee get a different type of badge or something.. ;) This way people can donate HP to me and be worthwhile to participate in this that way :)

Maybe that would be too hard to implement.

As long you also loose the badge if you remove the delegation... yep I guess. It’s probably doable. But the persistent badges are more fun to me.

That's a pretty cool way to support the community! I'll be powering up, although I don't formally qualify for Hive PUD as my rep is too high... but it's still cool!

The Hive PUD "rep" rule doesn't apply to the badge. We made it simple: 1st of the month and min 100 HIVE!



But, I am simply too greedy to wait until the first to power up.

Then you're doomed: no badge 😢

Just brought myself some more #Hive so I'm ready for tomorrow ^_^ Been meaning to get more anyways so this was the perfect time/opportunity!

Don't wait too long. Only a few hours left...

Yeah, I wasn't 100% but think I got it in ^_^

Well done! You big-bee now 😀

Congratulations @hivebuzz! You received a personal badge!

Congratulations, you powere-up at least 100 HIVE on Hive Power Up Day!
May Hive the Power be with you!

Self-congratulations are always welcome 😭
