No Shirt πŸ‘• No #HPUD πŸ₯” No Problem πŸ‘Œ

I didn't see much #hpud hype prior to June 1st, if any at all.

In my quest to dolphin-ize before 2020, I'm trying to put out as much quality content as I can while still being a Dad and also teaching the family how to Hive, gnarly right?

What To Do?

Β  Β I have been saving up my liquid HIVE for sometime, as I have never participated in an #hpud. I don't know too much about this community incentive, but was looking forward to doing it for this June 1st, as I thought it was a monthly thing.

Research, Research

Β  Β As I sat on my computer the night of May 30th, trying to find any #hpud posts concerning June, I found only a few posts, and those posts weren't informative. So I just continued life as usual on June 1st, thinking I would hold my liquid HIVE for another month in hopes of #hpud.

A Discovery

Β  Β After finding a post titled Hive power up for June - and a guessing contest by @LivingUKTaiwan a Hiver in-the-know, I concluded there wasn't too much hype for #hpud. She reasoned I might as well go ahead and power up and use the HP for curation and voting power.

Β  Β The only other #hpud posts I found were by @TraciYork and @BrittAndJosie, both referenced by @LivingUKTaiwan.

HIVE Ain't Gonna Power Itself Up

Β  Β After not finding too much, I decided to go ahead and power up regardless of the situation, I've got a new project, the ASEAN Hive Community, which could use some HP for curation, as well as my personal account.


"Potential regrets?"
"Will HIVE spike right after I power up?"
"You sure you wanna do this?"
"All of it, rememember last time HIVE spiked and you had nothing?"
"Might as well do power up everything."
"Go big or go home, right?"
"Approve before you change your mind."
"Too late now, done deal!"
"Blast off!"

πŸ€” But Can He Dolphin-ize? 🐬

Β  Β Some of the HIVE I powered up came from an exchange via BeeSwap, and it is the fastest and easiest way I've converted my STEEM into HIVE. I highly recommend this new tool.

Β  Β I'm trying to dolphin-ize my account before the end of 2020, and @JoshMan has recently set me the beneficiary on several recent posts of his. You're a legend my man, and your act has given me some ideas of my own.


Β  Β "What does all this mean? I got faith in the hive, ya jive?" The whole family is bloggging, and the future of Suriname looks more shaky than ever.

Β  Β There couldn't be a better reason to go all in and hope this experiment works out in the end. We're hanging on by a thread here in Suriname, which is under economic collapse, and we can't legally work here anyways, as if there were any jobs under this collapse anyhow.

Β  Β All I can ask is that you follow me (@JustinParke), my wife (@SreyPov) and our daughters (@KidSisters), cause we put out some pretty hot content.

Hey @joshman, here is a little bit of BEER from @justinparke for you. Enjoy it!

I've started trading my STEEM for HIVE as well but haven't tried this beeswap thing. The fee is 4x cheaper. I've got to test this out!

Thanks for showing this to me!

No worries @trincowski, glad to be of service. I did test the service out with 10 STEEM first before doing a big push, but all went well.

What...? You need 24 !BEER now for just one offer? Jeez...

Times are a changin'.........damn it Bob Dylan, how'd you get in here?

You need to stake more BEER (24 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

How many Hive power do you need to be a dolphin? Is that

@belemo, by my understanding it is 10,000 HP to be considered a dolphin. 500 HP takes you from Redfish to Minnow, then it's 501 to 10,000 HP before reaching dolphin. Whale is 100,000 HP I believe.


10,000hp? Well we have some way to go then. Godspeed brother

10,000 HP seems an attainable goal now, but 100,000 is a whole different story.

Hi Justin, there might not have been many posts about it but I believe many people actually powered up yesterday and I was one of them.

Thanks for teaching me about Beeswap. I plan to test it out as soon as I receive my next Steemit power down.

P.S. Keep up the good work and a πŸ€— to you and your family,


That's kind of what I heard, yeah several people powered up, but there wasn't a big community effort to organize it this month.

The BeeSWAP site is awesome, highly recommended, super cheap and super fast.


Did you do a power up blog if so can you participate in the contest let e know asap and i will inform @streetstyle

Nope, I didn't - I just powered up.
I try to mainly focus my blog on my creative work / process and curation :<)



Helemaal begrepen, power up kan altijd, door. Power up zal je vote ook sterker maken, maar salute to the creative process

Ik weet het en ik doe het graag - al heb ik af en toe wat geld nodig voor boodschappen / rekeningen ( ben min of meer 100% invested in crypto ) - maar ik bedoelde dat ik niet over dat soort dingen blog. Behind the scenes ( op discord ) leg ik dit soort zaken wel graag aan anderen uit :<)



Er zijn veel grote prijzen te winnen dus ik dacht ik breng de boodschap iedere 1e van de maand kun je mee doen.

Okido, dankjewel. Ik hou het in gedachten.

Fijne dag! :<)

Thanks for the info. I had even heard of #hpud before I read your article. Thnx

Every first of the month , watch my or @theterminal account for more information we always do a pre hive pud blog

I think the best place to stay up-to-date on future #hpuds is probably the @TheTerminal Discord server, as they have a room there dedicated to the monthly power up days. Cheers, have a BRO if the command is working.
