Despite some trepidation, the September 1st edition of the Hive Power Up Day was once again a success in participation. The combined launch of the Power Up Month probably had something to do with it.
A few words from the PUD organizers
Happy September, all!
This time last month, I thought that the Power Up Day totals might be a bit smaller than usual, since posting & tweeting seemed a bit quieter than the month before. I knew that I'd been spending July depositing my $HBD into my savings for that 10% APR instead of buying Hive, and figured many others were doing the same. However, the numbers showed that while we did have somewhat fewer people participating, the total powered up surpassed July!
That being said, I can't wait to see what the stats are this month, since it seems like more people are talking about power up day both here on the chain, and on Twitter. I've seen new faces in both places, powering up for the first time, longtime faces hitting milestones this month, and lots of tweets about both. I think the new Hive PUM buzz might have something to do with that!
As always, a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Power Up Day by powering up, posting, and/or shouting out on all traditional web 2.0 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. And here's to all the happy Hiveans who are increasing their voting power and influence on the blockchain!
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 15 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 25 people to get their PUD badge.
Special kudos to those who helped several accounts: @dreamingirwin (7), @traciyork (4), @pegarissimo §2) and @jacobtothe (2). Together, the helpers gifted 360.41 HIVE!
Here is the complete list of helpers and their donation:
@ryivhnn (100), @dreamingirwin (70), @traciyork (33.333), @justclickindiva (25), @pegarissimo (22), @jacobtothe (20), @qwerrie (10.077), @elemarg25 (10), @jesuspsoto (10), @maonx (10), @melinda010100 (10), @menzo (10), @mimerr (10), @straykat (10) and @techcoderx (10)
A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.
We now have 146 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:

(List by number of helpees)
Remember that the number of people you are helping will significantly influence the delegations we will do to you.
Let's now take a look at how you did against the previous editions:
Let's be honest: this is the worst edition in terms of volume of HIVE powered-up, barely 72622 HIVE.
It was a bit expected with the current tokenomics factors: the ongoing HIVE supply deflation (check it out in @arcange financial stats), the ability to convert HIVE to HBD under attractive conditions, and the current high price of HBD. Hence the apprehension expressed at the beginning of this post.
However, what is quite pleasing is to note that the number of participants remains stable and has even increased compared to the previous edition with 381 users who still performed a power-up.
Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:
Congrats to devrim @grot (8523,245), @vanje (6238), @singhcapital (5666,405), @borivan (4530,905), @thekittygirl (1500), @thefew.studio (1373,54), @holoferncro (1158,265), @jphamer1 (1125), @cmplxty (1100), @kryptodenno (1091), @notak (1026,549), @forykw (1003,85), @deepresearch (1001), @tattoodjay (1000), @juancar347 (1000), @jschindler (1000), @pouchon (1000), @walterjay (1000), @ryivhnn (1000) and @bowess (1000).
They powered up at least 1000 HIVE and got the Jumbo-Bee badge.
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 5189 HP to 119 users
Congratulations to all of you and enjoy our delegation!
See you on October 1st for the next PUD!
