It's Hive Power-Up Day! ~ Last Call for 2022
Well, just slightly past Hive Power-Up Day, anyway. I always seem to forget about these HPUD posts until the day of, by which point I have to schedule for the next day if I want to maintain my one post a day schedule. So here's my first resolution for 2023: Doing my HPUD posts on the day of instead of after they are over.
Anyway, another Hive Power-Up Day has come and gone. Let's talk about it a little.
Hive-Power Up Day (HPID) has been with us for awhile now. I try to always participate in it. I've missed some here and there, but I try to catch it when I remember. It's a great way to show support for this platform and increase your influence at the same time. We all believe in Hive, right? Well, HPUD is a great chance to put our money where our mouth is.
Hive Power Up Day uses UTC time, so I it ended 5 minutes ago as of this posting (I schedule my daily posts for slightly after midnight 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, sure, badges are a little silly, but they are a fun perk. Think of them as achievements in your favorite game.
But more than that, you will increase your voting power and your stake in this platform. For the money motivated: every power-up increases your voting power, which will increase the curation income you get and may also attract other people to look at your account when they see your big upvotes.
I powered up 100, as I have the past few times. I keep meaning to power-up more, but other stuff on the Hive ecosystem keeps coming out and attracting me. This past month that has been EDSMM and more BRO. Maybe next month I'll try to do more!
Growing stronger!! Soon to be a whale!!
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 and/or @traciyork so you will be reminded a few days before the next one.
