UNOFFICIAL WINNERS LIST FOR #HivePUD (Hive Power Up Day) August 1st, 2021

Unofficial Winners List for HivePUD August 1 2021.jpg

Before I get to the preliminary results, I figured I'd explain what the "Updated" thing means. For those who missed the announcement post this month, I'm streamlining things a bit, and adding beneficiaries to these four monthly posts. I had a bunch of different ideas for how to set this third one, but in the end I decided to burn the $HIVE rewards, since it makes the most sense to me to do something to increase the value of the $HIVE we're all staking each month. If someone has another suggestion for next month, please feel free to shout out!

And as always, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this month's Hive Power Up Day, either through powering up, posting, offering prizes, or spreading the word. As I said on @hivebuzz's feedback post ...

Happy August everyone!

After an amazing and record breaking month for July that included an ATH (all time hive) volume record for the @hivebuzz side of Power Up Day, this month seems to have been a little quieter. Personally, I got a bit carried away with dropping $HBD into my savings account at every opportunity (that 10% APR is pretty hard to resist) so I didn't have nearly as big a power up today either. But what wasn't quiet was the enthusiasm for everyone who was powering up - lots of happy Hiveans increasing their voting power and influence on the blockchain!

And a very loud THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Power Up Day by powering up, posting, and/or shouting out on social media. All of those things help shine a light on our blockchain home, 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, as well as all the other awesome initiatives you create for our Hive community!


Turns out it wasn't quite as quiet as I thought - the number of participants dropped a bit from June & July (as did the HiveBuzz number of users - I might be on to something with that $HBD thing), but the total amount of Hive being staked went up! 😊

To break it all down, we had 54 qualifying entries for the prize pool (compared to 66 in July) with 106 total entries (compared to 123 last month) and 115 posts with either the #HivePUD or #HPUD tags on the first (137 last month).

As for the overall number, the power ups ranged from 1 to 17,000 (yes, 17 THOUSAND!) Hive Power, for a grand total of...

41,653.32 Hive Powered Up!


By comparison, the total in July was 40,116.24. So even with fewer people participating, the total was still bigger than last month. I'd say that's...



The lists

Here is the UNOFFICIAL winners list for August 1st. If you spot any errors, or your powerup/post was somehow overlooked, please shout out as soon as possible.

On August 5th, I'll post the OFFICIAL written-in-stone list, and at that time the sponsors can award their prizes (the complete list is in the announcement post).

Again as always, special thanks to my numbers guy @abh12345 for sending along the raw data for me to use to put this together. Much appreciated, Asher! 😊



This list only includes those who powered up & posted about #HivePUD and/or #HPUD on the 1st, and met the criteria (reputation between 39 and 69 before powering up; Hive Power between 100 and 8000 prior to the 1st), and posted using the tag(s) so they qualify for prizes. I don't assign placement numbers until the official list is posted, and I've added a separate list below this one for those who posted & powered up, but their accounts were either too big/too small in their Hive Power or Reputation to qualify for the monthly prize pool.
