The Hive Power Up Day (PUD) is taking place on the first day of every month and any account powering-up at least 10 HIVE will be granted a nice Power-Bee badge.
Unfortunately, for some, 10 HIVE may still be a significant amount. For others, it may be that they already performed a power-up during the month and are missing some HIVE to reach their goal.
Helping others to power up
Did you know that you can give the PUD badge to your friends or other users who do not have enough HIVE to power-up?
This is possible by directly powering-up your HIVE to another account, without first transferring them to its wallet, so you can be reassured these HIVE won't be used for another purpose.
This is really easy to do:

Your friend's account will find its wallet with more HP and he/she will get the Hive Power Up badge. Cool gift, isn't it?
Get rewarded for the help you provided!
By helping others to power up, you are showing everyone how mutual support is an important concept within the Hive community!
Therefore, we have created a new badge that will be awarded to all helpers on Hive Power Up Day.
To get the badge, the helper (you, the one doing the HIVE power-up) and the helpee (the one receiving Hive Power) must both follow these rules:
- The helper must have more HP (Hive Power) than the helpee, i.e. you must help a less powerful account.
- The helper must power-up at least 10 HIVE to the helpee during the Hive Power Up Day
- The helper cannot be powered-up by another account
- The helpee cannot power-up to another account
- The helpee must NOT have been previously powered-up by another account, i.e. it must be the first time it receives a power-up from someone else.
The above rules are summarized in the following graphic:
Yes, that's a bunch of rules to follow. But we want to make this badge valuable for those who manage to get it, our goal being to promote real help and avoid abuse or power-up circle-jerking.
How to know if an account is eligible as a helpee?
The fifth rule above is a bit tricky. How to know if someone has not already benefited from a power-up from another user?
To help you, we've updated the HiveBuzz website to display a small tag on the users' level badge if they do so:
If the tag appears, it means that "the account has already received a power-up in the past. Powering up to it won't grant you a Power Up Helper badge".
It doesn't mean that you can't power-up this account and thus grants it a PUD badge. It means that you will not receive the Power Up Helper badge by doing so. It's up to you to power up a second eligible account and receive your Power Up Helper badge.
This tag will only appear for the duration of Power Up Day and is updated in real-time, so better to check your helpee board before powering it up.
Why should I help others to power-up?
On top of being friendly and supportive with your fellow Hivers, this is a good way to ensure that as many users as possible become more involved in the life and governance of the Hive blockchain.
That being said, we have prepared other incentives for the next edition of the Power Up Day. Having a Power Up Helper badge under your belt could well represent a significant advantage for you in the future. Don't overlook it!
