Hive Power Up Day for February 1st 2022

HivePUD first day of every month Feb 1 2022 announcement blog graphic.png
 
 

Seems like the new year just began two minutes ago, but now the second month of the year is already fast approaching! Which means its almost time again to celebrate the first of the month by powering up Hive to your account. Not only does that make your vote more valuable, it adds to your curation rewards and you even earn a bit of interest on your stake - talk about a win/win!

And speaking of win, for those smaller Hive accounts, there's the possibility of winning prizes, including delegations. So be sure to participate in the next Hive Power Up Day, which will be here in less than a week - in fact, the @hivebuzz countdown timer is now ticking down the days to February 1st. Keep an eye on it over on the HiveBuzz site so you don't miss your chance to also earn a badge while you power up and build your Hive account.

Like I did back in July 2021, I've again changed things up a bit with these Power Up Day posts. I dropped the beneficiaries, streamlined some things, and plan to do some promotional sorts of stuff to spread the word both here on Hive, and on other social media. Oh, and as of last month I've redone the blog graphic again, thanks to Canva.

If you'd like more in depth information about Power Up Day, please check out this post from July 2021, but here is a basic overview...

 
 

What is HivePUD?

Hive Power Up Day happens on the first of every month. Those who are able to, take this time to power up some Hive, and/or cancel their power downs and pause trading/selling for the 24 hour span of the day.

 
 

How to get HiveBuzz badges

For details, check their post from last month, Feedback from the December 1st Hive Power Up Day as well as their Power Up Day Helper Badge post but essentially -

 
 

How to qualify for HivePUD prizes

  • Your reputation must be above 39 and below 70.
  • Your total Hive Power (before the 1st) must be more than 100 and less than 8000.
  • You must power up at least 10 Hive on February 1st.
  • You must write a post about your power up on February 1st (your local time) with the tag #HivePUD (International) or #HPUD (Spanish) as one of your first 5 tags (tagging only in the body of the post doesn't count).

 
To be included in the winners list, you must meet all four requirements above. The order of the list (first place, second place, and so on) will be determined by the biggest PERCENTAGE of Hive powered up, not necessarily the most Hive powered up.

#hpud looks like fun.

It also happens to be Lunar New Years 2022.

I think I will celebrate both. I plan to at least double my HP, lol.

Hi @traciyork! Thanks for another PUD post - I'm getting ready to participate once again!

I have a question about Hive Basic Income. I only just properly figured out what this is and it seems like they are an awesome thing because they basically give a lifetime benefit in terms of post upvotes.

But I've only ever heard of them before as rewards on these PUM challenges - so I'm just wondering why they aren't used more commonly?

And for anyone else that didn't know what Hive Basic Income is check this out:
https://peakd.com/hive-189312/@steembasicincome/hive-sbi
and you can also see your balance if you are using PeakD by going to the PeakD wallet, and then going to the others section.. here's mine:

There was a small amount of pushback against our service a couple of years ago (which has since been resolved, and the instigators have left Hive completely). We opted for a lower profile at that time, and a lot of our growth momentum was lost.
At this point, we don't have the same level of awareness that we used to have. There are still a few contests that use Hive SBI for prizes, though. We have some #contests channels in our Discord server that are a good resource if you're looking for more opportunities to win. https://discord.gg/T5xVBYhm2s

That's one reason to be active in a community - where you get tips about things like HBI/SBI or @dustsweeper or all the other little things that make your Hive life easier.

I make a give away of one share of HBI among the commentators of my posts - but I don't announce it ;)

I do that too, but I don't post very often, so even more reason not to announce it!

Oh now that's an interesting idea!

I did know about @dustsweeper at least, though my vote is enough not to worry about dust. I wonder what other little things I will discover!

Hey @steembasicincome - thanks loads for answering my question! That makes a bit more sense and I've joined your discord.

Now I understand what it does I think it's awesome - I post quite a bit and plan to do so for a long time so lifetime upvotes sound like a no brainer!

I am also planning to run some contests myself soon and am thinking of giving HIVE SBI as prizes.

I can understand why from what they were saying at the top of this thread and with a little adoption, it could take off again - do you reckon?

yeah - I certainly think it's a nice thing for people on Hive to know about it - I'll be looking out for contests where I can get some for sure and will be offering it in some of my own contests/giveaways.

Hi @traciyork, I am new here on HIVE, however, I was on the legacy blockchain some three years ago. This will be my first ever #HivePUD event. I'm pretty sure that I meet the criteria for it...

  • My reputation is currently 51.6.
  • My total Hive Power is currently 116.
  • I have at least 10 liquid Hive in my wallet, ready to power up.
  • I will write a post about my power up on February 1st, with the tag #HivePUD as one of the first 5 tags.

That all sounds fairly straight forward. I'm looking forward to this event!

There are very few accounts really growing and let it grow.
Most accounts use their coins each month to pay their bills or get into other projects with them .
I have never cashed out any Hive , but now that i bought some other coins after some powerdown and delegated a big chunk of my account and since no whales has ever been on my account since the beginning of hive , i think i deserve some cashing out now because all we see again and again is the help from big accounts to little accounts ( which will always stay little and why not since we get more by doing so )

It is a nice competition but I can't participate because my own Hive Power is less than 100.

Hi! I want to participate this time, I did the power-up before but I didn't make a post then haha. I'm curious, should the post be here in LeoFinance?

Hey @tsunsica and that's a great question! You can certainly post in the LeoFinance community (since it definitely fits) or any other relevant community you'd like. The really important thing though is to make sure that one of your first five tags is #HivePUD so it doesn't get missed when it's time to pull the data. And looking forward to seeing your participation!

I just love HivePUD and like to say thanks for this project.
It allows my to grow my HP as I don't have much fiat to bring in so this makes me commit personally to finding a way to get enough hive to power up on the 1st of every month.
