ANNOUNCEMENT POST - Hive Power Up Day, September 1st 2021

Announcement HivePUD September 1 2021.jpg

 
 
In just under a week, the next Hive Power Up Day (aka #HIvePUD) will be here! In fact, the @hivebuzz countdown timer started ticking down the days. Be sure to check it out on the HiveBuzz site (under the "Challenges" tab) so you don't miss your chance to earn a badge while you power up and build your Hive account!

As I mentioned in last month's announcement post, I've changed things up a bit with these Power Up Day posts. I'm now excluding all my usual Power Up Day info (other than the basics and the prizes) and at some point in the next few days it will be posted as one FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) reference that I will link to from here on out.

For the moment, if you'd like more information about Power Up Day, please check out the Announcement post from July 2021. And speaking of, here are some for this month, which are essentially the same as last. 😊

 
 

Announcements

  1. The payout from this post (aka the beneficiaries) is split equally between the three winners from August's HivePUD, so @woelfchen, @dadspardan, and @lxsxl will each get 33%.
  2. The payout for the next post ("Welcome to HivePUD" on the 1st) will go to the top 3 winners of @victoriabsb's Hispanic #HPUD initiative (also 33% each).
  3. The payout for the Unofficial Winners post on the 3rd or 4th will go to @hive.fund (aka the DHF/Decentralized Hive Fund), instead of burning it as I did last month.
  4. The payout for the Official Winners post will go 80% to me, and 20% to my numbers guy @abh12345.
  5. Prizes Added! Starting last month, and since my "One Year of HivePUD Celebration Drawing" was such a big hit, I spoke to @eddiespino, and he said @theycallmedan would sponsor a new monthly prize for accounts who don't qualify for the regular prize pool - see details in the Prize list below.

 
 

What is HivePUD?

Hive Power Up Day happens on the first of every month. Those who are able to, take this time to power up some Hive, and/or cancel their power downs and pause trading/selling for the 24 hour span of the day.

 
 

How to qualify for HivePUD prizes

  • 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.
  • You must power up at least 10 Hive on September 1st.
  • You must write a post about your power up on September 1st (your local time) 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.
