It's Hive Power-Up Day! ~ Time to Power-Up is Here Again!
Another Hive Power-Up Day has come and gone. Did you power-up in time?
Hosted by @hivebuzz and @arcange, Hive-Power Up Day (HPID) has been with us for awhile. I try to never miss it. It's a great way to show support for this platform and increase your influence at the same time. Hive Power Up Day uses UTC time, so I it ended 10 minutes ago as of this posting (I schedule my daily posts for 0:10 UTC just to keep things consistent). To check what these times are in your local time zone, this is my favorite time zone conversion site, but you can also go to the Hivebuzz page, login, and they will show you a countdown clock.
If you have at least 10 Hive that you can power-up, you will get a badge from doing so. I mean, silly badges shouldn't be the reason you are powering-up, but they are a fun perk. The actual levels are as follows:
But more than that, you will increase your voting power and your stake in this platform. I've been here for over 5 years now (my Hive birthday was this past week). I believe in this platform. Even if Hive doesn't moon (as we all hope it will), I think we are building something pretty great with this platform. If you are here reading this, I might imagine you agree. Hive is growing far more slowly than some of us hope, but with that slow growth has come a greater stablity than many other platforms have.
The past few times I've powered-up 100 Hive. I did the same this time. It's a nice even amount. In the future I may power-up more for these days, but currently I use a large chunk of change to fund rewards for Blockchain Poets (if you want in on those rewards, get over there and write a poem) so that limits what I have to power-up with.
Growing stronger!! Am I a whale yet? SOON!™️
If you missed out on this HPUD, don't worry, it'll come again next month. But that next month will be here before you know it. I suggest following @hivebuzz so you will be reminded a few days before the next one.
