Community PUD: +1,800 HP for HivePUD on 1 August 2020

in The Man Cave6 months ago (edited)

Since announcing I was powering "down and out" on the Steem blockchain, I have had some "macro" trading success with those revenues. Now safely stored in my Hive wallet, today seems like a good day to Power Up some of it on our Hive blockchain!

@streetstyle began the PUD (Power-Up Day) "movement" a long time ago and carried it forward, through the creation of the Hive blockchain, to the referenced post above for the HivePUD of May 1st. There has always been a monthly contest associated with it, to encourage participation.

Simple eligibility rules:

  1. Reputation score less than 70 👍 🙂
  2. Reputation score greater than 39 👍 🙂
  3. Power Up HIVE on 1 August 2020 👍 🙂
  4. Post about your HivePUD on 1 August 2020, with the tag #hivepud 👍 🙂

Here is my Power Up executed a short time ago:

This represents a Hive Power increase of ~14%. Not too bad! And ...

Yes, yes, I know ... Not technically true, taking into account MVests and all those technical details.
😉 I just like round numbers so work with me here a little bit! 😉

But ... There is an additional part of #1:

  1. More than 100 Hive Power but less than 8,000 Hive Power 👋 ...

Ohhh well ... I met that requirement, as well, until converting STEEM to HIVE. But, that is okay. This contest is to encourage members of our community to join in doing their small parts to collectively help add value overall to our Hive blockchain.

And also to create a thriving "middle class" on it! 👍


@traciyork has been thoughtful enough, for the sake of the Hive blockchain, to keep this contest going. She explains here what little she knows of the absence of @streetstyle of late.

Joining the PUD fun this month is @hivebuzz, a well-known project created by @arcange. As explained here, the HiveBuzz team is adding a new PUD badge for participants!

And here is the awesome new badge they have created!

You too can be a "buff bee!" 😂 The requirements for getting this badge are much simpler than those above. Just pump power-up a minimum of 100 HIVE on August 1st!

    HiveBuzz will use UTC date and time to validate when you powered-up. Therefore, check your timezone and convert your local time to UTC before powering up!

Thank you for all of your hard work on this Hive Buzz team. Not an artist myself, but I am very impressed by your creativity! 🙌


So with that, I have done my small part for another month, along with many of you, to help our Hive blockchain along on its merry way.

Let's all look forward to what will soon be coming in Hard Fork 24! The details sound promising. And who knows, maybe then the long-promised wonders and benefits of SMTs will not be too far behind?

Until "next time," all the best to you for a better tomorrow, as we all work together to build up our Hive Communities and add increasing value to our Hive blockchain! 👍 😊

Since announcing I was powering "down and out" on the Steem blockchain, I had completed it by the end of June. July 1st then seemed like a good day to join PUD for only the 2nd time and the 1st on our Hive blockchain!

Dear @roleerob, You explain to non-English speakers like me as easily as possible, but it's difficult for me. Still, I am reading your writing as hard as possible.
As I read your writing, I think only those with wealth can enjoy freedom.

Thank you!

@silvergrifin007, with all due respect to my Korean friend, I believe the reverse to be true.

Congratulations @roleerob! You received a personal badge!

You powered-up at least 100 HP on Hive Power Up Day!
May the Hive Power be with you!

Love the creativity displayed in this newest badge @hivebuzz! I will "wear it" proudly!! 🙂👍

Thank you @roleerob

Nice one. Love The Man Cave community. I am a proud member of this awesome community.

Going forward @gorllara, you'll want to consider using "reblog" vs "resteem," as there are a lot of "veterans" of the "war" between these two blockchains ...

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 17 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!
