Once again, we were surprised by the enthusiasm and the participation rate in this second edition of the year 2022 of the Hive Power Up Day.
We broke the record of participation with an ATH 484 users participating in the challenge. Is it the Chinese New Year effect?
Power Up Day has become an important moment in the life of our community and it is now setting the pace each month.
A few words from the PUD organizers
Happy shortest month of the year, everyone! Hard to believe we're already in the second month of 2022 - guess time flies when you're busy watching the price of Hive slowly ticking back up!
Judging from what I've been seeing in my feed (both here and on Twitter), I'd say we're going to have some awesome numbers for February's Power Up Day. I know at least a couple of long-time Hivers have made some sizeable power-ups, and there have been lots of posts saying, "My first ever power up" (and not just from newbies). It's so encouraging to see all the enthusiasm for hodling during this dip - it's one of the reasons why I tell everyone that Hive is a coin like no other, because our passionate and dedicated community totally rocks!
Speaking of passionate and dedicated, a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this 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 for continuing to add to the fun (looking at you, Hive Power Up Month!). And here's to all the Hiveans who continue to increase their voting power and influence on the blockchain - congratulations to you all!
What are the PUD stats of this month?
As usual, let's start first with those who choose to help others grow, the Power Up Helpers, as those are the ones who deserve the most attention.
We have 14 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 15 people to get their PUD badge.
[REMOVE] Special kudos to those who helped several accounts: @ahmadmanga
Together, the helpers gifted 152.222 HIVE!
Here is the complete list of helpers and their donation:
@traciyork (22.22), @arcange (10.00), @dizzyapple (10.00), @forykw (10), @hamsterpoweriii (10), @hivebuzz (10), @holos-lotus (10), @ksteem (10), @mary-me (10), @silversaver888 (10), @straykat (10), @tdctunes (10), @thomas4711 (10) and @trippymane (10).
A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.
In previous years, we had 166 users who helped at least one less powerful user who never got any power-up from anyone.
As you know, the Power Up Helper badge is now a yearly thing, so we have reset our counter on January 2022. Here is the list of benefactors who got the so brand new coveted Power Up Helper badge for 2022:
Congratulations to @traciyork (2), @arcange (1), @dizzyapple (1), @forykw (1), @hamsterpoweriii (1), @hivebuzz (1), @holos-lotus (1), @ksteem (1), @mary-me (1), @silversaver888 (1), @straykat (1), @tdctunes (1), @thomas4711 (1) and @trippymane (1).
(List by number of helpees)
This brings the number of helpers for this year to 22 users.
Remember that the number of people you are helping will significantly influence the delegation we will do to you.
Let's now take a look at how you did against the previous editions:
As mentioned at the beginning of this article, we had a record number of 484 participants. This is a new all-time high and demonstrates the community's interest in this fun yet self-growing challenge.
Regarding the volume of HIVE that have been powered up, we have a decent amount of 74473 HIVE powered-up.
Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:
Congrats to @sandeepp (25000), @brittandjosie (4107), @ecency (4000), @jphamer1 (2370,672), @synrg (1963), @singhcapital (1890,952), @w74 (1809,517), @patsitivity (1232,069), @btcsam (1200), @brianoflondon (1111), @tothebatpoles (1000), @achim03 (1000), @tarazkp (1000), @ph1102 (1000) and @silversaver888 (1000).
They powered up at least 1000 HIVE and got the Jumbo-Bee badge.
Power Up Month is underway!
Don't forget that the Power Up Month challenge now takes place every month.
If you participated in the Power Up Day, you are automatically "registered" for the PUM and can be rewarded with a delegation of Hive Power at the end of it if you succeed in the challenge.
See you on March 1st for the next PUD!
