This November edition of the Hive Power Up Day has once again been amazing.
It was fun to see that people still responded even though we were unable to introduce anything new for this edition. We have seen a lot of participation and buzz on Twitter with the #HivePUD or #HPUD tags.
A few words from the PUD organizers
Going into Power Up Day this month, I fully expected it to be a much quieter event, given all the lingering hard fork headaches (as well as the disconcerting dip). While I don't have any official numbers yet, I do know I was stupendously surprised when I found over 100 posts to upvote!
Seeing so many people still so enthusiastic about building (and hodling their Hive even when the price drops - I saw a number of people saying they were excited to be able to buy more at discount prices!) is an amazing reminder that we're not just a bunch of people with the same coin in their wallets. We're a wicked awesomesauce and passionate community, and it was so cool to see it in action yet again.
Thanks again to the HiveBuzz team for being a big part of the reason there's such a buzz about supporting our blockchain home!
As always, I'm impressed to see how users from the Hispanic community who find in Hive a way to support their families still participate in and power-up what sometimes looks like a small amount to others but could be a plate of food to them.
This makes me feel proud of my community! ❤️
What are the PUD stats of this month?
As for the previous month, let's start first with data about Power Up Helpers.
We have 26 users (~8% of participants) who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 33 other users to have their PUD badge.
Once again, there were people helping several accounts!
Kudos to @fraenk (3), @scorer (3), @abh12345 (2), @immanuel94 (2) and @jossduarte (2).
Together, the helpers gifted 1331.065 HIVE!
The most generous are @blocktrades (686,017), @condeas (100), @french-tech (100), @immanuel94 (97,29), @fraenk (30), @scorer (30), @jossduarte (30), @abh12345 (25), @cryptictruth (25), @hooiyewlim (24,538), @dannewton (20), @melinda010100 (20), @bashadow (11,11), @muscara (11,11) and @ybanezkim26 (11).
They all gave more than the minimum 10 HIVE required.
A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.
Among all the above-mentionned users, 13 of them helped at least one less powerful user who never got any power-up from anyone. These benefactors got the so coveted Power Up Helper badge:
Congratulations to @jacobtothe, @kubak, @stayoutoftherz, @cryptictruth, @scorer, @ybanezkim26, @death-and-taxes, @melinda010100, @reiseamateur, @maruskina and @laloretoyya!
Let's now compare with the previous editions of the PUD.
No record this month, but an honorable number of participants: 328 users made a power-up or helped someone else to power up. This is great!
Although the generosity was there, as we saw above, the power-up totals declined slightly.
So take a look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:
As you can see, the major changes are in the middle.
We had fewer users doing small power-ups (which explains the decrease in the number of participants).
On the other hand, the number of users who have made a 100 HIVE power-up is constantly growing. which seems to indicate that this is the ideal value that everyone wants to power-up at the beginning of the month.
The Jumbo-Bee seems however to remain very attractive for some.
Become a Sponsor
Some amazing members of the Hive community are supporting the PUD by providing the event with prizes like delegations or giveaways. Another very appreciated way to motivate people to join.

See you soon
We look forward to seeing you again next month. This time it is promised (hopefully no more hardfork or covid issue to disturb us), we should present you the novelties that we have prepared for you.
