Welcome to @streetstyle's #HivePUD (Hive Power Up Day) for July 1st 2020

Welcome to HivePUD July 1 2020 blog thumbnail.jpg

It's here! Okay, technically in my little corner of the world, there are still a couple more hours left of June, but I wanted to get this post out now since #HivePUD has arrived in other parts of the globe!

What is Hive Power Up Day?

It's something that has been taking place on the first day of every month for well over a year, ever since @streetstyle came up with the idea on that other blockchain. There's a great old post from @sndbox that explains all the reasons you personally benefit from powering up. For the community as a whole, it's a great way to show support for our blockchain home by staking (aka powering up) Hive and adding to its value.

What does it require?

In @streetstyle's words ...

For the first day of the month:

• We ask that everyone who can do so, power up any amount of HIVE they are holding on the first of the month.

• We ask accounts that are currently powering down to please pause the powerdown during the hours of the first of the month.

• We ask that those who are trading and/or selling Hive, not to do so during the hours of the first of the month (and if possible, cancel any type of sell order on any exchanges for the same hours).

What are the rules to win prizes for HivePUD?

Again, in Street's own words (with my changes edited in)

MUST have a reputation score BELOW 70.00 ( so 69.99 is good & Can participate.) AND more than 100 HIVE POWER (prior to HivePUD) BUT LESS than 8000 HIVE Power.

MUST have a reputation score of 39 & ABOVE (so rank of 38.99 will Not Win)

MUST Power Up HIVE COIN on JULY 1st, 2020

MUST make a post about your POWER UP on JULY 1st with the tag HivePUD . It can be as simple as "I powered up X amount of HIVE COIN" to a simple picture/screenshot of your Power Up and posted to your HIVE blog, or it could be a super long dissertation on HIVE Power. IMPORTANT:use HivePUD hash tag so that I can be sure to see them.

The winners MUST meet all 4 requirements , and it will be based on the Biggest HIVE Power Up PERCENTAGE, not the biggest Power Up. This means that it will be based on the ratio between your current amount of HIVE Power and the amount you power up on JULY 1st.

For Example:

If you have 1000 HIVE Power already powered up prior to JULY 1, and on JULY 1 you complete steps 1-5 with a 100 HIVE Power Up,

and

another HIVE member has 300 HIVE Powered up prior to JULY 1, and on JULY 1st Powers Up 60 HIVE Coin, then this 2nd user would be winning with a 20% power up versus the first example with a bigger power up but smaller percentage of only 10% based on their account.

Shout out to the Venezuelan #HPUD Initiative!

Shortly after I posted the the HivePUD announcement post, I discovered that @victoriabsb has started one for the #Hive Venezuelan community! That's wicked awesomesauce, Victoria and best of luck with your very first #HPUD!

Here's her initial post with all the information on how to participate -

🌟 Can We Venezuelans Do a HIVE Power Up Day? #HPUD || Podemos Los Venezolanos Hacer un Hive Power Day? 😎 💪 🌟

And here's her latest update -

Update || 🌟 iniciativa: Dia de HIVE Power Up #HPUD Venezolanos 😎 💪 🌟 [ENG/ESP]

I hope even more initiatives like this start popping up! Wouldn't it be cool to have a whole bunch to choose from? If anyone knows of any others, please shout out so I can include them in future #HivePUD posts!

Coming Up Next

After July 1st has officially ended all over the world, I'll have my crack team of experts (aka the ever awesomesauce @abh12345) compile the numbers, and just like Street used to do, I'll put out an UNOFFICIAL winners post on the 2nd or 3rd, to give everyone a chance to shout out if anyone gets overlooked. Then on the 5th, I'll post the OFFICIAL winners list, and at that time all of our amazing sponsors can award their prizes.

Also in the winners post, I'll explain why I removed the pre-HivePUD post requirement by revealing a new (and hopefully fun) giveaway for next month. @nathanmars has already generously offered one prize, I'll contribute another, and I'm working on getting more in place. 😊

Once again thanks to everyone for all you do to make our new blockchain space a home! Here's to an awesomesauce Hive Power Up Day and let's make @streetstyle proud!
