Hive Power Up Day for January 1st 2022

What better way to start the new year off than to power up Hive to your account? Not only does that make your vote more valuable, it adds to your curation rewards and you even earn a bit of interest on your stake - talk about a win/win!

And speaking of win, for those smaller Hive accounts, there's the possibility of winning prizes, including delegations. So be sure to participate in the next Hive Power Up Day, which will be here in less than a week - in fact, the @hivebuzz countdown timer is now ticking down the days to January 1st. Keep an eye on it over on the HiveBuzz site so you don't miss your chance to also earn a badge while you power up and build your Hive account.

Like I did back in July 2021, I'm again changing things up a bit with these Power Up Day posts. I'm dropping the beneficiaries, streamlining a bit more, and plan to do some promotional kinds of things to spread the word both here on Hive as well as on other social media. Oh, and I've redone the blog graphic again, thanks to Canva.

If you'd like more in depth information about Power Up Day in general, please check out this post from July 2021, but here is a basic overview...

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 January 1st.
  • You must write a post about your power up on January 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.
