Unofficial Winners List for HivePUD September 1 2021.jpg

Before I get to the preliminary results, a quick shout out to say that (in keeping with my plan to set different beneficiaries for 3 of my 4 monthly Power Up Day posts) while I initially planned to set the beneficiary of this post to the (aka the DHF/Decentralized Hive Fund), I changed my mind a few days ago. Instead the beneficiary for this post is @steevc's project, @tenkminnows. Specifically because of this bit in his Hive Power Up Day post for September -

Talk about dovetailing nicely with #HivePUD!

I might change it up again next month, or I might continue to support his project with this 3rd monthly post - we'll see how it goes. Regardless though, I'm going to do some delegation shuffling when I'm doing the HivePUD awarding, and while I don't know how much yet, I will definitely start delegating to the Ten K Minnows intiative.

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 from September 1st...

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!


Looks like I was right about the chatter - while the total powered up was much lower than last month's amazing total, we had more participants and posts this time around. 😊

To break it all down, we had 62 qualifying entries for the prize pool (compared to 54 in August) with 112 total entries (compared to 106 last month) and 125 posts with either the #HivePUD or #HPUD tags on the first (115 last month).

As for the overall number, the power ups ranged from 0.078 to 1,373.54 (sadly no 17K power up from any community members like last month Hive Power, for a grand total of...

17,242.079 Hive Powered Up!


By comparison, the total in August was 41,653.32. So even with though the total was smaller, we had more people participating, which is...



But now sadly for some not so positive news...

Special (and unfortunate) announcement

It was brought to my attention by @victoriabsb after she posted her preliminary results for the Hispanic Power Up Day that it looks like a group of seven accounts seemingly all powered up and posted in a way that gives the appearance that there is a single person behind them all. After discussing it with her, we agree that it goes against the spirit of power up day, and anyone trying to "cheat" the system should not be included in the final results (which is one of the reasons this post is going out late on the 4th, as I had to adjust all the numbers and lists).

Apparently we need to add an additional rule going forward that only accounts in good standing, and who are not engaged in shenanigans will be added to the Power Up Day lists. And yes, I'll figure out better wording for next month - at the moment, I'm too discouraged by those who use underhanded and deceptive practices here on the blockchain, apparently not caring who they hurt in the process. It's especially beyond me how someone could think that cheating at something that's supposed to be fun is the way to go.

But enough about that for now. Time to focus on the good stuff again, so let's get to the preliminary results.

The lists

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

On September 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 usual monthly prize pool.

Speaking of witch which...



Wow, thanks for the support of @tenkminnows. I am trying to keep it going and we may actually be seeing improvements in numbers. The downside of a higher $HIVE price is that it will get more expensive to buy more to power up. We can just keep sending rewards to those who add value to Hive.


@traciyork! I sent you a slice of $PIZZA on behalf of @steevc.

Did you know you can now buy Rising Star packs with $PIZZA? (6/10)

I must also find out more about @steevc's @tenkminnows. Love the idea.

As for what @victoriabsb has discovered...🤬😡🤬

It's just a little project to try and help the smaller accounts. People have been very kind with their support. Unlike other projects you do not get paid for that.

I like that. There is no payment for the little I do for Power Up Day...and which is also aimed at building little accounts.

Not everything has to be for profit. We can do things just because they bring general good.

Exactly. I completely buy (ha!) that.

Thanks so much for all of the time and energy that you @traciyork, @hivebuzz and Asher @abh12345 have once again put into keeping us all on track, moving forward and moving up in the world for #hivePUD!

And I am happy to say that I actually got it right this time around. And I mean REALLY right because I actually remembered to turn my..something something into hive just 3 days beforehand to give me enough to power up! So proud of myself! 😃

I'm going to check out @steevc @tenkminnows project and I'm sure the rest of it will eventually sink in too...🤣

Thanks so much once again guys! LOVE YA WORK!

I don’t really understand tho

Thanks to #HPUD Team work @traciyork wishing you a happy month ahead!

I'm very happy! it's the first time I'm on this list! Thank you

Greetings and thank you for stimulating this activity 🙂

Congrats to the winners 🎉 Although I didn't qualify for prizes it was a great PUD for me because now I finally have a decent amount of HP again. Keep powering up 🔥

That was a fun initiative. I had fun trying to qualify for the #hivebuzz powerhelper badge. Though it took me a while, and had to ask to find out. That the badges wouldn't be seen till after powerup day. Yet it was still fun to give.

Thank you for the lists and the help for menzo (and all other) to understand your initiative! I !LUV it and give you a !BEER and a slive of !PIZZA for you hard work :-)

@traciyork! I sent you a slice of $PIZZA on behalf of @vokus.

Did you know Pizzabot in Discord has a bunch of useful commands? (1/10)






@traciyork, you've been given LUV from @vokus.

Check the LUV in your H-E wallet. LUV changes soon. (1/1)

Congratulations to the winners and continue supporting this great familiy Hivers 🤗😊

I don't get it. All I do is doing what minimum power up daily enough to fullfil the requirment. I powered up 1HP daily which is the minimum. Having those badge is my priority in participation. I convert earned Starbits from rising star game to hive for daily hive power. Being listed in unqualified leave me question mark. What I have done wrong.

Well you need to power up 10 HIVE on the 1st of the month (UTC time).

It is different from what was written here.. I choose to take option 2 part..

I am pretty sure that was the post for "HIVE Power Up Month" and not "HIVE Power Up Day".

aahh.. alright.. this term somehow confusing me... thanks for the !LUV -ly reply.. much appreciated!






@jfang003, you've been given LUV from @menzo.

@menzo, I hope I can clear that up for you. 😊

~ For the monthly Hive Power Up Day badge, you need to power up a minimum of 10 Hive on the first during the hours of UTC (more info at this link )

~ To qualify for the monthly Hive Power Up Day prize pool, you need to power up a minimum of 10 Hive on the first during your local time, and post about it using either/both #HivePUD/#HPUD (more info at this link.

~ Powering up 1 Hive per day is the ongoing requirement for the new @hivebuzz Power Up Month going on in September (more info at this link )

Because you only powered up 8.642 Hive on September first, you fell short of the 10 Hive required, so you didn't get a monthly badge or qualify for prize pool. However, if you've been powering up 1 Hive every day, it sounds like you're on your way to the first ever Power Up Month badge!

Please let me know if you have any other questions and I'll do my best to help.

Thank you so much for the clarification.. It't took a while for you to explain it to me. Much appreciated! Thank you !LUV !PIZZA

You're very welcome, @menzo and as I said, please feel free to ask if you have other questions. And thank you for my !PIZZA - I !LUV it! 😄

I am still new for all this kind of 'Power Up' program. I thought it was all the same. Hahaha! So, from this moment on, I comprehend that there are 3 types of power up badge (Helper, Day, Montly) .. I manage to get PUH for September & didn't realize the existence of PUD. So, yeah, now I understand. Thank you so much. Sorry for my shamefull act and question. Hahahah!

No worries, @menzo - I've asked plenty of questions during my time here on the blockchain (and still pester people with them on a regular That's how we figure things out, right? 😊

Glad I was able to help, and now I'm off to dreamland (waaay past my bedtime right now - oopsies!). Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
