Feedback from the August 1st Hive Power Up Day

It would have been really incredible to break the records of the previous PUD edition. But this August Hive 1st Power Up Day was nonetheless excellent and more than normal.

A few words from the PUD organizers


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!

What are the PUD stats of this month?

Before going straight to the volume and participant stats, let's start first with those who choose to help others grow, the Power Up Helpers as those are the ones who deserve the most attention.

We have 9 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 12 people to get their PUD badge.

Special kudos to @traciyork who was the only one helping several accounts (4).
Together, the helpers gifted 221.444 HIVE!

Here is the complete list of helpers and their donation:
@podping (100.00), @traciyork (44.44), @ctrlyse (15.00), @dontcare89 (11.00), @qwerrie (11.00), @beanz (10.00), @chibititan (10.00), @justclickindiva (10.00) and @melinda010100 (10.00).

A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.

We now have 138 users who 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:

Remember that the number of people you are helping will significantly influence the delegations we will do.

Let's now take a look at how you did against the previous editions:

It was to be expected, difficult to repeat the record of 2.5 million from the previous month, but this edition does not look poor compared to the other ones. Congratulations to the 348 users who together performed a power-up of 104951 HIVE!!!

Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:

Hive Power delegations

Since the beginning of this year, we are rewarding regular participants and those who have also been generous in helping others by offering a 3 weeks Hive Power delegation.
To be eligible for a delegation:

  • you must have participated in this Power Up Day.
  • You must have performed at least 5 power-ups on Power Up Day. Power-up received from another user is not taken into account.
  • 4 of these 5 power-ups must have been done on the last 5 Power Up Days (including this one).

To compute the amount of HP delegated to each user, we use the following criteria:

  • The number of power-ups performed.
  • The number and levels of power-ups you have performed (ex: you made two "level 3" and three "level 5" power-ups).
  • The number of people you helped to power up and the amount involved.

This month we will delegate no less than 4847 HP to 117 users

UserDelegated HP

Congratulations to all of you!

See you on September 1st for the next PUD!
