Feedback from the April 1st Hive Power Up Day

in #hivebuzz3 years ago (edited)

The Hive Power Up Day has truly become an important moment in the life of our community and, once again, this edition did not disappoint us.

While we were expecting lower participation given the current bull run of the HIVE price, we still broke the previous record for the number of participants! This testifies to the motivation of the Hive community to stay mobilized for this event.

A few words from the PUD organizers


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!

What are the PUD stats of this month?

As mentioned above, we didn't break a record this time around. This is undoubtedly due to the crypto rally which saw the price of HIVE go up, making it a bit more difficult to acquire HIVE for a power-up.

But let's start first with those who choose to help others grow, the Power Up Helpers.

We have 17 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 23 people to get their PUD badge.

Special kudos to those who were helping several accounts:
@junkfeathers (4), @p3ntar0u (2) and @kwame89 (2)

Together, the helpers gifted 291,773 HIVE!

Here is the complete list of helpers and their donation:
@shmoogleosukami (50.00), @p3ntar0u (48.26), @junkfeathers (40.00), @kwame89 (20.00), @tsunsica (11.30), @traciyork (11.11), @schlees (11.00), @fronttowardenemy (10.10), @alexvan (10.00), @androshchuk (10.00), @carlagonz (10.00), @ctrpch (10.00), @emsenn0 (10.00), @kubak (10.00), @melinda010100 (10.00), @recording-box (10.00)and @vokus (10.00).

A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.

We now have 99 users who helped at least one less powerful user who never got any power-up from anyone. These benefactors got the so coveted Power Up Helper badge:

(List by number of helpees)

Remember that the number of people you are helping will have a significant influence on the delegations we will do.

But before writing about that, take a look at how you did against the previous editions:

As mentioned in this post's introduction, we have a new record for the number of participants with 405 users who powered up their HIVE.

As expected, no record for the volume of HIVE that have been powered up. 79224 HIVE have been staked. Definitely not the best score, but not the lowest either.

Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:

The big power-ups suffered the most with only 22 big stakers who got the Jumbo-Bee thanks to a power-up of at least 1000 HIVE!

Congrats to @sandymeyer (10000), @carrinm (5004,337), @cooperclub (3000), @jarvie (2000), @jeenger (2000), @dendendenden (1895), @newparadigmtt (1850), @raffy (1822), @daltono (1756), @samstonehill (1506), @spartacus84 (1500), @ddrfr33k (1500), @justaboutart (1314), @ashtv (1249), @ewkaw (1100), @blue.rabbit (1070), @howweroll (1029), @jmere (1019), @deepresearch (1001), @pouchon (1000) and @thebluewin (1000).
(List by amount of Hive powered up)

On the other hand, we have a new record of “small” participants. An understandable change.

Hive Power delegations

Since the beginning of the year, we are rewarding regular participants and those who have also been generous in helping others by offering a 3 weeks Hive Power delegations.
To be eligible for a delegation:

  • you must have participated in this Power Up Day.
  • You must have performed at least 5 power-ups on Power Up Day. Power-up received from another user is not taken into account.
  • 4 of these 5 power-ups must have been done on the last 5 Power Up Days (including this one).

The last rule has been slightly modified from what we announced in order not to penalize those who unfortunately missed a PUD (shit happens). This allows us to support a bit more participants and reward your commitment and consistency.

To compute the amount of HP delegated to each user, we use the following criteria:

  • The number of power-ups performed.
  • The number and levels of power-ups you have performed (ex: you made two "level 3" and three "level 5" power-ups).
  • The number of people you helped to power-up and the amount involved.

This month we will delegate no less than 3616 HP to 102 users

Congratulations to all of you!

See you on May 1st for the next PUD!

Our pleasure @jaster. Thank you for participating in the Hive PUD.

It's rather odd that the planets happened to align with a favorable Hive/HBD ratio. I wonder how that happened?

I figured the stats might be down because people lower up less with price surges. I’m pretty happy with what occurred.

We all are happy. Looking forward to the next PUD Thank you @cryptictruth

Same here keep it up!

Congratulations on another successful month with more people powering up than before! Thanks for the delegation prize too, an unexpected surprise - have a great weekend everyone!

Last month I missed Power Up Day by legit like 30 minutes, because my Internet went down. So, I got to catch up this month, and help a friend!

Yes, the timing is very important for the Hive PUD (and we have no mercy 😈😉)

Glad you succeeded this time and congratulations for helping others @emsenn0 👍

Cool! Didn’t realise there was another badge for ones over a 1000 power up. 😁

Fantastic it’s been a success, with even more participants! ❤️

Thanks so much to all of you for helping Hive grow!

Congratulations everyone for doing an amazing job! Adding value to the chain and building more rewards for everyone. This is so cool. Those badges are so slick.

Kudos to everyone who powered up and participated in the event this month.

3616 HP is a big number, can't thank enough for the support and encouragement.
Keep up the good work.

Hello @hivebuzz What awesome numbers this month. Yes, the price of Hive took me by surprise as I wanted to invest some in other other Tokens and also purchase additional Hive to help others. Still, the enthusiasm is there. I try my best to help spread the word. I tell Hiveans it's not about the HivePud prizes (although that is great). It's about joining in the initiative and helping Hive's growth potential.

Thank you so much for the delegation. I will do my best to help others grow and begin to appreciate the Hive PUD day.

Your and @traciyork's efforts are commendable. Keep up the good work. I certainly appreciate it.

Take care and have a good weekend.

Hi, I made my 10 Hive power up but I don't appear in the list. @traciyork

I did all the steps, I uploaded the screenshot to my post.
I feel trizte....

How do I get rid of the dead fish icon next to my name on my profile? I've been posting again for days now, but...It's not working.

Hello @jenkinrocket, please apologize for the delay.
We finally fixed it and it should be ok in the coming hour
