Feedback from the September 1st Hive Power Up Day

in #hivebuzz2 years ago (edited)

Despite some trepidation, the September 1st edition of the Hive Power Up Day was once again a success in participation. The combined launch of the Power Up Month probably had something to do with it.

A few words from the PUD organizers


Happy September, all!

This time last month, I thought that the Power Up Day totals might be a bit smaller than usual, since posting & tweeting seemed a bit quieter than the month before. I knew that I'd been spending July depositing my $HBD into my savings for that 10% APR instead of buying Hive, and figured many others were doing the same. However, the numbers showed that while we did have somewhat fewer people participating, the total powered up surpassed July!

That being said, I can't wait to see what the stats are this month, since it seems like more people are talking about power up day both here on the chain, and on Twitter. I've seen new faces in both places, powering up for the first time, longtime faces hitting milestones this month, and lots of tweets about both. I think the new Hive PUM buzz might have something to do with that!

As always, a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Power Up Day by powering up, posting, and/or shouting out on all traditional web 2.0 social media. All of those things help shine a light on our blockchain home, which in turn helps to grow our community. Special thanks to @hivebuzz for always BEEing such an incredible buzz-maker for Hive Power Up Day. And here's to all the happy Hiveans who are increasing their voting power and influence on the blockchain!

What are the PUD stats of this month?

Before going straight to the volume and participant stats, let's start first with those who choose to help others grow, the Power Up Helpers as those are the ones who deserve the most attention.

We have 15 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 25 people to get their PUD badge.

Special kudos to those who helped several accounts: @dreamingirwin (7), @traciyork (4), @pegarissimo §2) and @jacobtothe (2). Together, the helpers gifted 360.41 HIVE!

Here is the complete list of helpers and their donation:
@ryivhnn (100), @dreamingirwin (70), @traciyork (33.333), @justclickindiva (25), @pegarissimo (22), @jacobtothe (20), @qwerrie (10.077), @elemarg25 (10), @jesuspsoto (10), @maonx (10), @melinda010100 (10), @menzo (10), @mimerr (10), @straykat (10) and @techcoderx (10)

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

We now have 146 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:

Congratulations to @traciyork (22), @junkfeathers (10), @tazi (9), @melinda010100 (9), @reiseamateur (8), @dreamingirwin (7), @victoriabsb (6), @primersion (5), @louis88 (5), @pegarissimo (4), @qwerrie (4), @ybanezkim26 (4), @bashadow (4), @ahmadmanga (4), @french-tech (4), @straykat (3), @sandymeyer (3), @carlagonz (3), @revisesociology (3), @scorer (3), @kubak (3), @fraenk (3), @ecency (3), @jacobtothe (3), @remenzer (2), @breelikeatree (2), @kwame89 (2), @pusen(2), @saleg25 (2), @blocktrades (2), @tibaire (2), @immanuel94 (2), @gr33nm4ster (2), @notak (2), @trumpikas (2), @shmoogleosukami (2), @lesiopm (2), @oliverschmid (2), @trangbaby (2), @sammie (2), @p3ntar0u (2), @schlafhacking (2), @schlees (2), @silversaver888 (2), @dawnoner (2), @brittandjosie (2), @fw206 (2), @condeas (2), @jossduarte (2), @dannewton (2), @derangedvisions (2), @justclickindiva (2), @chibititan, @acidyo, @podping, @stormcharmer, @ctrlyse, @dreemsavingsfund, @jesuspsoto, @theguruasia, @penderis, @keco, @pizzabot, @sydney.potts, @beanz, @elemarg25, @dontcare89, @soulturtle, @charsdesign, @xyba, @mimerr, @dreemport, @menzo, @bighungrypanda, @thatcryptodave, @maonx, @nomad-magus, @dwinblood, @manuelmusic, @ctrpch, @littlenewthings, @emsenn0, @wedacoalition, @vokus, @tribesteemup, @androshchuk, @fronttowardenemy, @ramzimo68, @tsunsica, @skylinebuds, @alexvan, @ryivhnn, @pardinus, @recording-box, @walterjay, @pixiepost, @ph1102, @madefrance, @techcoderx, @richardfyates, @valerianis, @phoenixwren, @zirky, @stayoutoftherz, @perceval, @pavelsku, @quekery, @successchar, @happyfrog420, @tarazkp, @satren, @russellstockley, @yolimarag, @elianaicgomes, @hive-data, @jesusalejos, @elizabeths14, @improv, @cryptictruth, @jeanlucsr, @jznsamuel, @jongolson, @blue.rabbit, @iamraincrystal, @brianoflondon, @inertia, @death-and-taxes, @jacuzzi, @deepresearch, @jeffjagoe, @arcange, @joanstewart, @acguitar1, @eliezerfloyd, @gregory-f, @engrave, @ksteem, @ervin-lemark, @laloretoyya, @felander, @maruskina, @muscara, @miriannalis, @forykw and @fermionico
(List by number of helpees)

Remember that the number of people you are helping will significantly influence the delegations we will do to you.

Let's now take a look at how you did against the previous editions:

Let's be honest: this is the worst edition in terms of volume of HIVE powered-up, barely 72622 HIVE.

It was a bit expected with the current tokenomics factors: the ongoing HIVE supply deflation (check it out in @arcange financial stats), the ability to convert HIVE to HBD under attractive conditions, and the current high price of HBD. Hence the apprehension expressed at the beginning of this post.

However, what is quite pleasing is to note that the number of participants remains stable and has even increased compared to the previous edition with 381 users who still performed a power-up.

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

Congrats to devrim @grot (8523,245), @vanje (6238), @singhcapital (5666,405), @borivan (4530,905), @thekittygirl (1500), (1373,54), @holoferncro (1158,265), @jphamer1 (1125), @cmplxty (1100), @kryptodenno (1091), @notak (1026,549), @forykw (1003,85), @deepresearch (1001), @tattoodjay (1000), @juancar347 (1000), @jschindler (1000), @pouchon (1000), @walterjay (1000), @ryivhnn (1000) and @bowess (1000).

They powered up at least 1000 HIVE and got the Jumbo-Bee badge.

Hive Power delegations

Since the beginning of this year, we are rewarding regular participants and those who have also been generous in helping others by offering a 3 weeks Hive Power delegation.
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).

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 5189 HP to 119 users

UserDelegated HP

Congratulations to all of you and enjoy our delegation!

See you on October 1st for the next PUD!

HiveBuzz is a project created by @arcange



That means someone will get 10x 161HP = 1610 HP delegation for one week, by the end of this post curation...


This is absolutely awesome @forykw. Kudos for your excellent initiative! 👍

Just updated the post announcing the amount =)

Hey good work on this and thank you! Remember Hive much more expensive than it was last month so what is the current $ value of Power Ups? In comparison to last few months? Nice one eat !PIZZA and chill

@hivebuzz! I sent you a slice of $PIZZA on behalf of @stickupboys.

Did you know Pizzabot in Discord has a bunch of useful commands? (5/20)

Thank you @stickupboys
On 2021-08-01, HIVE price was around $0,3788
On 2021-09-01, HIVE price was around $0,5630
We will let you do the computation 😅

The Post title is a bit confusing, this is the September feedback right? Great stats though 👍 I'm adding to it in October again😊

Damn, we messed up with the title 😞
It's been fixed now. Thank you for notifying us.

😄 sh** happens lol...welcome 😊

It's cool to have so many people taking part. Not everyone can afford to invest a lot, but it shows confidence in Hive. We need more people with a stake to make it better.


Yeah, it's great to see that even though they can't stake a lot, people still want to have fun and be part of the challenge.
It is rare and it shows how much we are a community of enthusiasts.

@hivebuzz! I sent you a slice of $PIZZA on behalf of @steevc.

Did you know PIZZA has a very active community Discord? (5/10)

Thanks for updates, keep up the good work!

Glad to take part in helping people. Although it's not much, hope it help.

Small streams make great rivers. Any help matters to the one who receives it.
Thank you for doing so @menzo 👍

Glad to get my first giant bee! Hoping to have another month or two of being able to do that!

I'll have to power up some folks! Am I seeing it right that I have to power up at least 10 HP to be counted in the power up of another?

Woot Woot, the Jumbo-Bee is yours! Congratz @cmplxty

Am I seeing it right that I have to power up at least 10 HP to be counted in the power up of another?

Yes, that's correct.

Good to see so many people taking part!
Thank you for the delegation, that was a nice surprise 😀

We love surprises 😉.
Thank you for taking part too @shanibeer

This was fun challenge. I really liked the idea of incentivizing the helping if of others. It was a good reminder that there's fun in giving.

Man, you're a star when it comes to helping others. 7 helpees! You rock! 👍
Will you participate in the PUM too?

What a great initiative to grow #hive and the community

Thank you @detlev !BEER

You need to stake more BEER (24 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

Great iniziative and thanks a lot for the delegation

Thank you @libertycrypto27. Enjoy your delegation.






@hivebuzz, you've been given LUV from @libertycrypto27.

Check the LUV in your H-E wallet. LUV changes soon. (5/10)

Participating in HPUD is always a good goal for me to have each month. . Thanks for the super nice delegation!

And this month, we set up another goal for you: the HPUM 😜

I did see that, but I have not yet read the rules.

Come on... go read those rules! 😒

Gracias @hivebuzz por este reporte; aunque el volumen potenciado en Hive fue inferior a otros meses, me alegra ver la participación se mantiene estable, esto sin duda habla de nuestro compromiso hacia la comunidad y hacia el crecimiento que creo queremos impulsar, crecimiento personal y colectivo porque en la medida que somos capaces de ayudar a otros nos ayudamos a nosotros mismos.

Esta es una gran dinámica, y me alegra poder ver tantos nombres en éste listado, felicidades a todos los nombrados y felicidades especiales a ustedes @hivebuzz, que mes a mes, día a día, nos muestran el seguimiento de nuestros logros en la cadena de bloques.

A todos los que hicieron HIVEPUD, con poco o mucho, FELICIDADES, estamos en el camino correcto de la historia,

Saludos, bendiciones y éxitos.

Thank you @hivebuzz for this report; although the volume boosted in Hive was lower than other months, I am glad to see the participation remains stable, this certainly speaks of our commitment to the community and to the growth that I believe we want to promote, personal and collective growth because to the extent that we are able to help others we help ourselves.

This is a great dynamic, and I am glad to see so many names in this list, congratulations to all those named and special congratulations to you @hivebuzz, who month by month, day by day, show us the follow up of our achievements in the blockchain.

To all who made HIVEPUD, with little or much, CONGRATULATIONS, we are on the right path of history,

Greetings, blessings and success.

Muchas gracias por sus comentarios y su amabilidad @keco.
Estamos totalmente de acuerdo con lo que escribiste.

Thank you for this detailed report and for all your support. And thank you for the further encouragement in the form of a delegation that can be used for a certain period of time.

Your work and your support are highly appreciated!

Thank you @jacoalberts. Enjoy your delegation and, why not, participate in the Power Up Month 😉

Hello @hivebuzz. Thank you so much for the 101 HP delegation. I appreciate it so much and your support. It was an honor to help a lesser account power up in September.

Take care, and have a good weekend.

Thank you for your feedback 😊👍
Have a nice day! Take care too.

Keep up the good work, and thanks for the updates!

Thank you @silversaver888






@silversaver888, you've been given LUV from @hivebuzz.

Check the LUV in your H-E wallet. LUV changes soon. (1/3)

Thank you! 💪🚀

yay! Thanks a lot!

I think most people are holding on to their liquid Hive in case of some crazy pump

Or converting them to HBD to benefit the "small" diff from the peg 🤑

This is awesome, wish I had found it sooner! Will deff power up for October - I am guilty of hoarding HBD in savings at the moment like you mentioned haha

Very good work

Thank you !! I was confused by the message, but, I get it now! :))
