The Minnow Power-up League Week #22

in community •  5 months ago 

Welcome to the Minnow Power Up League.

The Minnow Power-Up League is kindly sponsored by Steem witness @yabapmatt, and @steemmonsters! Prizes will be issued in @steemmonster packs and Steem -

We now have 116 minnows that are growing and tracking their progress and road to dolphin-hood. We also have 19 graduates. Together this week, the league member's have powered up a total of 10296.163 Steem Power. All participants since joining have powered up a massive 150713.561SP. To learn more about this minnow initiative please do have a read of our introductory post:

Let's Grow Together

Don’t forget we are all trying to grow so please do consider supporting the person above you and the person below you in the league by visiting their blog posts or even voting on their comments in this post.

The Minnow Power-up League

Every Thursday we will be using SteemSQL database managed by @arcange to gather details on the Owned SP for each person that has entered the league. The current weekly owned SP will be compared to the SP held last week. The person with the highest SP growth for the current week will be on top of the leader board.

There are 4 levels depending on your SP levels. Once you graduate from one, you will be automatically placed on the next. When you graduate from the 4th you will be placed on the Minnow Wall of Fame. As this post could get rather long with the 4 levels, as we grow, we may consider splitting this into different posts on different days.

Level 1


Congratulations to @breakout101 being first in the league this week with a massive power up of 486.879P.

Thank you for the great support it took me more than 23 weeks to achieve Dolphin status mostly because I invested every liquid Steem that I got into Steemmonsters.
Now my Monsters have a total worth of about 2100$ which are more than 7000 Steem.
I hope the Investment will pay off, good luck to everybody and happy powering up your Steem!

nice work on your steemmonsters investment, I too hope it pays off for you. 7K is greeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaatttt. So you are a celeb now on our wall of fame. Congraulations on becoming a dolphin

Thankyou for the lesson. Best of luck in the rest of the tournament :)

Thank you for the battle and the awesome upvote :-)


Beat me in a tournament, you get a 100% upvote on your most recent post or comment. Incentivises SM players to blog/comment.
Imagine if it became a widespread practice :)


I remember last year receiving votes on content from users I'd played recently in battles. It was a nice touch I thought.

Wondering if the above could be coded in and available as a check-box for Match-ups/Tournaments, etc. :)

That'd be cool. Get a decent price hike, and a 100% vote from a dolphin could be bigger than the prize money.

I want to join, it looks like this league is interesting

thank you for the information brother @stever82

Thanks a lot for the prize, every little bit of STEEM helps! 😀
Excellent work, people. Keep on steeming and keep on powering up, despite all the drama that goes around here.

you are most welcome @trincowski, all the drama, flags and spam and we keep going, chin up, steem on

Thanks @paulag and @abh12345! I appreciate the Monsters this week! The best card in my pack is a twisted jester. I'm hopeful that I will get to finally 'graduate' next week.

Twisted Jester - I don't think I've used that one very much as my Death(?) splinter is pretty crap.

Graduating next week? Hurray!!

It is about time... It's taken me long enough!

I need to go do some card management! I'm always happy to send out cards to my friends if I have anything they want!

Event the gold ones?

Where can i see what you have? :D

I sent you one you might like! I have been selling the gold ones... Let me go look. I don't know if I have any left

What did you send, I'm not sure if I had a confirmation?

You expect me to remember their names? Ha! Three golds and some legendary guy who had a market value of about $6 maybe crypt something?

I got them! Thank you! :D

You should run a contest or something for them, maybe even burn a $1's worth for an up-vote and to reduce supply/increase value.

Thank you!

Congrats and it will be great to see you graduate @melinda010100

Thanks, Paula! It's been a long time coming! 😊

First....thanks so much for this initiative! And second, thank you so much for the steem. Also, whats up with the abuser spam here? I upvoted everyone who had commented to try to drive the spam to the bottom. Hope everyone has s great day. (all images sourced from pixabay.)



Don't worry about that John, well done for the prize!

The video is actually really pretty all glittery and such. But the language is very angry. Must have been a bad disagreement. I hope everyone works everything out and it ends well. I wish everyone the best!!!😍

yes the spam is a bit of a bummer, thanks for sharing some votes to help combat it :-)

Uhm, curious. Looks like @por500bolos is not on any of the Level Charts here yet. 🤔

Oh right. I suspect this must have something to do with the fact that my time participating within the Redfish Power UP League has taken me like... uhm, well, yeah... like for ever to graduate my old bones over there Hahahaha.

And then, I suppose I didn't comment here yet as to be included into the Minnow Power-up League now. ¿Am I right @steemcommunity, @abh12345 & @paulag?

¡Alright! error corrected!! I am in, bring on all the prizes hitting my chest from now on. :)


fear not, you name has been added and you will be included in next weeks league post, I am extreemly happy to have you over, I love to see redfish celebs join us as minnows :-)

My pleasure babe!! ;)

Thank you Paulag and Asher for running the league. Some great growth again shown over all the different groups. So happy to see masterthematrix finally get over the line.

This spam is courtesy of @fulltimegeek! A real piece of shit who flags manual curation projects like @themadcurator because he's a spiteful cunt!!!

loads of growth, like two new dolphins in total, and yep masterthematrix made it, and has a load of steemmonsters worth 2K too :-)

I really like this and would love to join 😊 will read more about it tomorrow and I will go check my Witness and make room for you.
Have a wonderful evening. Cheers!

Aww thanks :D

Obviously the witness vote isn't a prerequisite for joining up and hopefully @paulag will get you on the list ready for this week. We do appreciate anyone even considering our witness though, thank you!

I just voted for you as a witness and thank you for all you do 😉👍

Aww thank you @saffisara!

Earning those votes is a tough task and we are very appreciative!

Your very welcome 😉👍

I keep meaning to ask and forgetting, did you design your header image?

I think it's the most jazzy and eye-catching one I've seen! I'm not sure some of the colours would suit me (or my stupid username) but it certainly works for you :D

Thank you 😊 glad you like it!
That was actually a gift from @enazwahsdarb a guy that was one of the first people I met on steemit. But sadly left steemit and won't return.
It was a cool banner and I only just saw the whole banner on my site as untill a week ago I only used my phone on all steemit activity so seing on the pc was.... Ooooo... Lol

Posted using Partiko Android

Oh yes, I remember that guy - he did like his banners and formatting.

Yeah the banner looks great on the desktop, very eye-catching!

Thank you so much 😊
I hear you on the vote, but the witness votes are for people who makes a difference and does good so as soon as I check my list I make room, well deserved.
Happy week my friend! 🌹

hi @saffisara, I have added your name to the league, you will be starting on level 3 and the new post will be out tomorrow

Thank you so much 😉 appreciate it.
Will look for the post.
Have a wonderful week. Cheers!

Meant to do this earlier, @steemcommunity, but congratulations to you all for another week of moving and shaking within the different levels of the minnow power up league.

Congratulations to all the winners and the rest who managed high double digit to nearly four digit SP growth. Well done!

A special shoutout to the latest to climb the Wall of Fame and graduate to dolphin status—@masterthematrix (finally—how does it feel? :), and @definethedollar (welcome!).

As for all the spam you all seem to be attracting... :)

Lol thanks for the video, sorry about the spma...just hodl and we all be good 😅😂

Posted using Partiko Android

Hey, @paulag.

No worries. As far as I can tell, no one is doing anything to deserve the spam, they're just getting it. So far, I feel fortunate not to be a part of it (but I'm not high profile either).

I thought the video might help lighten things up a little bit. Nothing like a little Monty Python silliness. :)

Monthy Python to the rescue. I have a new word for spam on the block, just like we hodl, we should not smap :-)

Thank You again for this Amazing community... Congratulations to everyone who progressed forward... May All Your Days be Prosperous and Blessed

And thank you for taking part!

I would like to join this!

Hi @elizacheng, thanks for your interest, we have a league for account with less than 500 sp over on my account, the Redfish league, i would love to see you join that. Sorry but you need 500+ sp for this league

Posted using Partiko Android

Hi! My effective SP is about 1400. Am I not qualified for this league?

Posted using Partiko Android

Wow thats crazy, i mixed up accounts checking via partiko, sorry. Yes, once your owned sp is over 500. Sorry about that

Posted using Partiko Android

No worries. Thanks for the fast response and all the effort to make Steemiverse a better place for everyone! ❤️

Posted using Partiko Android

Thank you both and steemcommunity for the prize. I see that I’m only 3 more steem to the next level, so finally I will reach the final level, though I am not sure if I will reach the wall of fame, but either way it’s been a pleasurable hike because of you :).

if you want to reach the wall of fame you will :-) I look forward to next week and including your name as a graduate of your level

Thank you so much for running this @steemcommunity (and @paulag) and providing some inspiration! This is pretty much what I needed to keep going again, after a very large and painful powerdown.

Congrats to all the other winners, as well... and thanks for the Steem, which I shall "invest" in a couple of SBI shares for someone.

Have a great week, everyone!

a time will come for all of us to power down. I bet your growth this time around will be a lot faster

I am hoping so! I have set myself the somewhat ambitious goal of making it back to dolphinhood by the end of this year... that's a pretty tall order, but we'll see; a lot will depend on the price developments of Steem, too...

Congrats on the encouraging progress that continues to be made by these members! I wish I had these experiences when I first started as it would have motivated me to get started earlier.

thanks so much @newageinv, as always your words are motivating

I just found out about this league. How unique and fun! I would like to join with @sagescrub and @homesteaderscoop!

Hi! Forgive me if I'm being intrusive, but @homesteaderscoop is on the list to possibly win 20k delegation for a year from @theycallmedan. We’re humbled and blown away, and super excited as we win 1K just for getting on the list! This flows down to everyone who supports us in the form of upvotes, challenges, and enthusiasm to keep what we do going. We support homesteading, gardening, spirituality, and other alternative ways of living driven by a love of sustainability, ethics and the environment. And of course we offer a free market to buy and sell sustainable goods and ethical services for STEEM and SBD! Your vote matters – it really does – and by voting for Homesteaders Co-op, you’re saying you support sustainability, ethics, the environment, natural living and more. Go you – you are awesome! Here’s the link to the Dpoll:

Homesteaders Co-op
