Saturday Savers Club Finale: We Did It! | Saver of the Year Award | HP Challenge Winner | 2021 Round-Up

Hello Everyone,

Happy New Year 2022! This year is going to be great!

Today we have a round-up of the year, with the winner of Guess @susie-saver's HP on 31 December and the final challenge for 2021 - your nominations for Saver of the Year 2021!

Hasn't it been good in 2021? Did you make your savings targets? And we had a lot of fun along the way. I've put together links to all the posts from 2021 below, so you can go back and check all the savings tips shared by members and remember the high spots. Mine has to be Jeff Bezos in Space, which happened the same week that El Salvador adopted Bitcoin as its national currency.

But we also had some fun with the no-buy month in September (I reckon some of the biggest savings were made then), not to mention Bitcoin Pizza Day in May and October Side-Gig month where members shared lots of knowledge and expertise.

I've just been watching crypto predictions for 2022 and it looks like we're in for a rollercoaster ride this year. It's a great time to be here and building your stake, it may be a little hair-raising at times, but hey, we're building a crypto buffer through the Saturday Saver Club, so we'll have some resilience for the inevitable turbulence!

So how did we do this year? Well, @susie-saver, the savings account for Saturday Savers Club, put away a tad over £670 ($890) in Hive and ended the year with 1215 HP, worth approximately $1,896 or £1,422 at 31 December 2021. The account also had 65 EDS and 5 EDSMS, worth about $175 or £130. Not a bad year's work! 🤑

Guess @susie-saver's HP on 31 December: Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

This was a close run thing with six Saturday Savers coming in very close range to the final result: @riandeuk at 1204, @ericburgoyne at 1206, @tokutaro22 at 1208 and @jfang003 at 1210 and just past the winning amount was @justclickindiva at 2020 - excellent predictions!

The winner was @lammbock with 1213.4 - how close is that???!!!
Congratulations @lammbock - check you wallet for some SPI goodness and thank you to everyone who took part!

Thank you for joining us in Saturday Savers Club in 2021 and look forward to seeing you this year. There will be a new post about the 2022 Saturday Savers Club in the next few days.

Big thanks to @ocd for support for the Saturday Savers Club

The first two Saturday Savers Club posts, way back in January 2021, benefited from big votes from @ocd and some other large accounts. We were able to use the HBD from those two posts to buy 104 EDS income tokens to give two away for comments every week throughout the year. Each week, everyone who commented went into the Wheel of Names, and every week, we had two lovely winners, bringing extra fun and engagement for everyone.

One of the delights of the Club has been the comments and the shared tips and support between members. The Saturday Savers Club post has consistently been in the top ten most commented posts in Leofinance for many, many weeks. This has value for Hive way beyond the members who are taking part: visitors and newcomers can see a friendly place with lots of interaction, sharing and fun. Thanks everyone.
