Hive Power Up Day for March 1st 2022

The shortest month of the year somehow led to the shortest announcement time Power Up Day - I think this is the latest I've ever posted it. In a month filled with... stuff... both online and off, this one kinda got away from me. But on the positive side, we also have three new prize sponsors this month (or two and a half, as one of the sponsors jumped in last month just in time for the Official Winners post, but increased their prizes this month), and there's talk of another Orca Month prize in the works.

So now 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! Not to mention all the possible prizes, like delegations, and drawings for things like powered up Hive, tokens like BRO, PIZZA, and POSH, as well as other cool things!

So be sure to participate in the next Hive Power Up Day, which will be here in about a day or so - in fact, the @hivebuzz countdown timer is now ticking down the hours to March 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 recently 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 January 2022 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 February 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 March 1st.
  • You must write a post about your power up on March 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.

Hivebits blends Hive's blockchain and Bitcoin's ethos. Your effort = your reward. Mine HBIT simply with ! hivebits (no space), one-per-day. Success! You just mined .9 HBIT and the user you replied to received .1 HBIT on your behalf. You can receive 100% of the HBIT by replying to one of your own posts or comments. Or, support Hivebits by using the official HBIT mine | your wallet | market | tools | connect | <><

Booyah!

You KNOW I am in. So happy to be delegating 500 HP to 2 HPUDers this and every month going forward. I will also be following/curating and perhaps even sharing posts on my blog and twitter posh.

Congrats in advance for powering up your stake and locking value into the blockchain for everyone here.
