Given the current bear market and the recent Hive price pump, we were wondering how Power Up Day would play out.
We are not disappointed because both the participation rate and the amount of Hive power up have remained relatively stable.
A few words from the PUD organizers
Strange to think we're already in the second half of 2022, but from what I can tell, people were celebrating it today by stacking some sale priced Hive! I'm really excited to see the numbers because while I don't think it was record breaking by any stretch of the imagination (and yes, I seem to say that a lot...lol), I did see a goodly number of new faces participating today and that's one of the main reasons for this initiative - to help new people build their accounts and grow their influence on this wonderful blockchain we all call home.
For me personally, thanks to this ongoing bear market, I was able to power up much more than my usual this month, and I have high hopes of getting even more liquid Hive over the next few weeks so I can double it for the August Power Up Day! So as much as I hope to see the arrival of the bull, I'm doing everything possible to take "the bull by the horns" while I can!
As always, 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 the blockchain, 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 blockchain fun. And here's to all the Hiveans, new and old, who continue to increase their voting power and influence on the blockchain - congratulations to you all!
What are the PUD stats for 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 9 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 14 people to get their PUD badge.
Special kudos to those who helped several accounts: @traciyork (4), @richardslater (3) and @reiseamateur (2).
Together, the helpers gifted 408.834 HIVE!
Here is the complete list of helpers and their donations:
@franky98 (248.29), @richardslater (50), @traciyork (44.44), @reiseamateur (25.10), @digi-me (11), @blitzzzz (10), @btcsam (10) and @ifarmgirl (10).
A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.
The previous year, 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 for January 2022. Here is the list of benefactors who got the so coveted Power Up Helper badge for 2022:

(List by number of helpees)
This brings the number of helpers for this year to 70 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 post, we had 478 participants who powered up 77737 HIVE. There is a very slight dip compared to last month which we most likely attribute to the current bear market but it remains quite decent numbers.
Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:
Congrats to @anomadsoul (16183,949), @someeoracle (5108,844), @davedickeyyall (4531,59), @ksteem (4001), @schlees (2400), @mengao (2000), @dannewton (1642,709), @dagger212 (1347,665), @akdx (1200), @j85063 (1000), @richardslater (1000), @borsengelaber (1000), @tdctunes (1000), @achim03 (1000), @ctrpch (1000), @tattoodjay (1000), @r1s2g3 (1000) and @ph1102 (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 pass the challenge.
See you on August 1st for the next PUD!
