Once again, we were surprised by the enthusiasm and the participation rate in this first edition of the year 2021 of the Hive Power Up Day.
While we thought that everyone would be busy partying with their friends and relatives to celebrate the change of year, it was with astonishment and pleasure that we saw that several records have been broken.
Power Up Day has become an important moment in the life of our community and it is now setting the pace each month.
As already said, we had several all-time highs during this edition. Unheard of since we have supported the PUD initiative.
Let's start with the first record: the number of Power Up Helpers.
We have 24 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 27 other users to get their PUD badge. Once again, there were people helping several accounts!
Together, the helpers gifted 1132.739 HIVE!
Here is the complete list of helpers: @immanuel94 (931,94), @hive-data (200), @blocktrades (172,833), @ibc (169,109), @omonomo (108), @zirky (100), @reiseamateur (68), @ecency (67,244), @junkfeathers (50), @primersion (41), @jeanlucsr (20,21), @equipodelta (20), @ahmadmanga (20), @silversaver888 (20), @jesusalejos (15), @qwerrie (15), @sammie (15), @traciyork (11,111), @yolimarag (10), @perceval (10), @phoenixwren (10), @aliento (10) and @carlagonz (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 71 users who helped at least one less powerful user who never got any power-up from anyone. These benefactors own the so coveted Power Up Helper badge:

As we announced in the introductory post of the Power Up Helper and as you will see below, this will have a significant influence on the amount we may delegate to them.
But before writing about that, here are some comparative graphs with the previous editions.
The number of participants was really close to the October record.
However, it is a new record for the volume of HIVE which was powered-up, with a new record since HiveBuzz supported the project. No less than 209041 HIVEs have been staked. It's an amazing 61.13% increase from the previous month's record!
Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:
In each level, we do better than the previous month, with a new record for levels 3 and 5, with 39 big stakers who got the Jumbo-Bee thanks to a power-up of at least 1000 HIVE!
Among them: @apshamilton (28000), @cryptographic (25718), @tarazkp (23460,857), @wiseagent (10000), @ecency (9046,519), @primersion (7627,746), @gogreenbuddy (7612,594), @mintrawa (4548,5), @lasseehlers (4336,56), @gengua (4231,21), @taskmaster4450 (3000), @wayoutwest (2445,714), @laradio (2200), @walterjay (2000), @neuerko (1710,404), @thehive (1630,607), @pradeepdee6 (1500), @ewkaw (1380), @jrcornel (1353,211), @claudio83 (1342,353), @justclickindiva (1302,333), @homesteadlt (1299,026), @jeenger (1202,1), @louis88 (1202,1), @satren (1202,1), @pouchon (1048,889), @aliento (1026,733), @oldmans (1015), @flauwy (1008), @nickyhavey (1001), @silversaver888 (1001), @calatorulmiop (1000,337), @bala41288 (1000), @bryan-imhoff (1000), @dalz (1000), @jacuzzi (1000), @kaeptn-iglo (1000), @nainaztengra (1000) and @vikisecrets (1000).
Let's mention @gabrielatravels who powered-up 1010 HIVE, but a bit too earlier (21 minutes). She still received her big Jumbo Bee badge (post-Xmas effect), while not being included in the above stats.
And now the long-awaited novelty of this month, the delegation of Hive Power.
As stated from the start of our initiative to support the Power Up Day, we want to reward regular participants and those who have also been generous in helping others by offering a 3 weeks Hive Power delegations.

The proposal that allowed us to finance our project expired at the same time as we left 2020. Many of you have supported us for the last months and we are extremely grateful to you.
If you have not yet done so and want us to continue our work of gamification of the Hive platform, please support our proposal for the year 2021:
