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

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 May Day all! Seems we got another nice little bump in the HBD price to celebrate Power Up Day with, and it was nice enough that I was able to make a bigger than usual power-up, as well as powering up some $LEO too! I don't think it will be a record-breaking month as far as overall numbers go, but it seems like every month, more and more people are finding out about this fun way to build their stacks while investing in our blockchain home.

While I was pretty busy today with my turn at the @lovesniper helm (a wicked cool initiative from @ocd to help welcome new people to the blockchain), I was able to take some quick peeks & I saw lots of chatter on Hive as well as Twitter about people staking their coins. To me. that's even more exciting than seeing larger-than-usual power up amounts because I think getting people enthusiastic about staking their Hive makes for a more involved and dedicated community (if that's even possible, given how incredible it already is!).

As always, thanks to everyone who participated in any way, either by powering up, posting, shouting out on social media - all of it helps to shine a light on our blockchain home. Special thanks to @hivebuzz for always BEEing such an incredible buzz-maker for Hive Power Up Day, as well as all the other cool initiatives you do for our blockchain home!

See everyone on June 1st!


And while participation was down slightly this month, all things considered it was another awesome result! 😊

We had 70 qualifying entries for the prize pool (slightly less than the 76 in April) with 125 total entries (compared to 131 last month) and 144 posts with either the #HivePUD or #HPUD tags on the first (down a smidge from last month's 146).

As for the overall number, the power ups ranged from 1.026 to 3,850 Hive Power, for a grand total of...

24,052.35 Hive Powered Up!

By comparison, the total in April was 26,667.630. To me, that's holding pretty steady for the past couple of months, especially since we're not seeing one or two huge power ups from whales in the 6 digit range. Instead we seem to have more dophins doing them in the 4 digit range, so I think that number is...



And I know I say it every month, but I'm so appreciative that I have to keep saying it, thank you to @jeanlucsr for bringing the idea to the @hivebuzz team, who then ran with it and made the Hive Power Up Day Badges such a buzz-inducing part of power up day! Every time I think they've outdone themselves, they turn around and do something even more amazing - like, awarding delegations to Power Up Day participants!

Now for the lists!

In keeping with how @streetstyle ran this, here is the UNOFFICIAL winners list for May 1st. If you spot any errors, or your powerup/post was somehow overlooked, please shout out as soon as possible.

On May 5th (towards the end of the day since this post is going out a bit later than I'd hoped) 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, and I'll include it again in the Official Winners post tomorrow).

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. As always, I won'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.
