Feedback from the August 1st Hive Power Up Day

Given the current bear market and the recent Hive price pump, we were wondering how Power Up Day would play out.

We are not disappointed because both the participation rate and the amount of Hive power up have remained relatively stable.

A few words from the PUD organizers


What amazing timing for a big Hive pump - right as Hive Power Up Day was about to begin! It will be interesting to see what effect it has on our numbers this month though - while I don't have any of the data yet, it seems like it was a little quieter as far as new faces go, but it would be cool if we got noisier numbers for the total powered up...lol!

Even if we didn't reach new heights this month, from the chatter I've seen on-chain and on Twitter, I'd say we had a more than decent amount of participation, which is not at all surprising given our awesomesauce community.

As always, a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this 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 the blockchain, 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 for continuing to add to the blockchain fun. And here's to all the Hiveans, new and old, who continue to increase their voting power and influence on the blockchain - congratulations to you all!

What are the PUD stats for this month?

As usual, 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 11 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 12 people to get their PUD badge.

[REMOVE] Special kudos to those who helped several accounts: @madame-cyntaia (2).

Together, the helpers gifted 262.565 HIVE!

Here is the complete list of helpers and their donations:
@madame-cyntaia (110), @eddwood (60), @blocktrades (11.35), @traciyork (11.11), @oaaguy (10.10), @brittandjosie (10), @darkflame (10), @digi-me (10), @jane1289 (10), @silversaver888 (10) and @synrg (10).

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

As you know, the Power Up Helper badge is now a yearly thing, so we have reset our counter for January 2022. Here is the list of benefactors who got the so coveted Power Up Helper badge for 2022:

(List by number of helpees)

This brings the number of helpers for this year to 76 users.

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

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

As mentioned at the beginning of this post, we had 411 participants. who powered up 64502 HIVE. There is a slight dip compared to last month which we most likely attribute to the current bear market. Despite everything, it remains quite decent numbers.

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

Congrats to @anomadsoul @accelerator (9000), @beststart (3975), @ctrpch (3955), @leiaviathan (3954,262), @deepresearch (1325,404), @stayoutoftherz (1300), @jeffjagoe (1206,601), @anewclassic (1106,637), @methodofmad (1001), @dontcare89 (1001), @borsengelaber (1000), @fredrikaa (1000), @ph1102 (1000) and @digi-me (1000).

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

Power Up Month is underway!

Don't forget that the Power Up Month challenge* now takes place every month.

If you participated in the Power Up Day, you are automatically "registered" for the PUM and can be rewarded with a delegation of Hive Power at the end of it if you pass the challenge.

See you on September 1st for the next PUD!
