Welcome to HivePUD September 1 2020 blog thumbnail.jpg

Technically in my little corner of the globe, there are still a couple more hours of August 2020 left, but I wanted to get this post out now since #HivePUD has already arrived in other parts of the world! If you want a wicked cool way to check if September 1st is officially in your area, be sure to check out the brand new Countdown timer courtesy of the awesomesauce team at @hivebuzz1

Oh, and don't forget today is also our next #HiveChat on Twitter, with host @hivetrending! Be sure to follow his Twitter account to make sure you don't miss the fun at 15:00 GMT/ 8am PST/ 11am EST (bumped up a few hours to accommodate our West Coast host). Check out his post [https://peakd.com/hive-154303/@hivetrending/hivechat-7-starts-in-12-hours](HiveChat #7 Starts in 12 hours!!) for more details!

And if that weren't enough for one day on the blockchain, today also kick's off @stellabelle's #JoinHive initiative! For the entire month of September, when you onboard new Hive accounts, you could also win prizes - check out @hivepeople's post, Share This Twitter Giveaway To Kick Off The #JOINHIVE Campaign for details!

Now, since I already did a rundown of it all in the Announcement post last week, I'll just do a little recap this time around.

What is Hive Power Up Day?

Hive Power Up Day has been taking place on the first day of every month since @streetstyle came up with the idea on that other blockchain over a year ago.

What does it require?

In @streetstyle's words ...

On the first day of the month...

• ...we ask that everyone who can do so, power up any amount of HIVE they are holding on the first of the month.

• ... we ask accounts that are currently powering down to please pause the powerdown during the hours of the first of the month.

• ... we ask that those who are trading and/or selling Hive, not to do so during the hours of the first of the month (and if possible, cancel any type of sell order on any exchanges for the same hours).

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.
  • NEW:
    You must power up at least 10 Hive on September 1st.
  • You must write a post about your power up on September 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.

Also, this month the Spanish #HPUD is merging with #HivePUD because as @victoriabsb said, "Joining forces, because we are stronger together!" Check out her post, Anuncio: HIVE Power Up Day #HPUD y #HivePUD se Unen este 1ero de Septiembre 💪 [ENG/ESP] || Initiative

What are the prizes?

The list of prizes, both confirmed & not confirmed yet, are in the aforementioned Announcement post

Did I hear something about badges?

At this point, I think everyone within a hundred miles of my 3D home has heard about Power Up Day badges...lol! Yes, last month after @jeanlucsr went to the @hivebuzz crew with an idea for a Power Up Day badge, @arcange, @lizanomadsoul, and the team came up with some amazing new stuff for this go round. Check out all the details in their post, Hive Power Up Day - Let's grow together!

Timeline Reminder

  • Power up Hive on September 1st, 2020
  • Post about your powerup on September 1st, 2020
  • Unofficial winners list will be posted September 2nd or 3rd (allowing time to correct for errors/omissions)
  • Official winners list will be posted on September 5th, after which sponsors will disperse prizes


That's it for now!

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 21 of my contest just started...you can now check the winners of the previous week!

See you a bit later....

It’s feels like last HPUD was yesterday.

Since then we collectively made lots of progress.

I’m ready for HPUD

Doesn't it feel like it was only a couple days ago? Time goes by too fast!

Exactly my man 👨

A pleasure to help, goooo HIVE PUD!

Magical new month, time to chat and expand Hive to all corners.

Hope our power is on for #HiveChat today with local load shedding happening again!

Hi @traciyork,

Here's my proof of power up!:


Glad I was able to participate in this one. Thanks @traciyork for keeping the fire burning.



As the blog title suggests, I am locking in and going long on #Hive.

Thanks so much for picking up the torch Traci! So glad to have known you these long years.

Here is my HivePUD post and it's a happy feeling to Power Up some Hive.


Thank you for leading this wonderful initiative :)

It was a lot of fun as always @traciyork! We are already looking forward to next months PUD 😉
