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 @jacuzzi being first in the league this week with a massive power up of 286.573 SP. Second week in a row on top. Nice!

Hi @paulcesna, welcome to steem, this league is for those with 500+sp, however if you visit my account you will find a redfish league and i would love you to add your name to that one

Thanks for the shout out @steemcommunity

I'm very pleased to finally make dolphin 🐬🙂

Posted using Partiko Android

yepppeeeeee congratulations, thats awesome. so you going to orca level next?

Hey Paula G 👋

so you going to orca level next?

Ha ha, that's the plan... although I don't know how as I'm pretty much the definition of impoverished writer. But if I get my novel written, finished and it gets snapped up by penguin then I'll definitely drop £15,000 into steem to boost me up to orca 😂

Hmnnn... I'm wondering how long it would take me to work my way up to orca through post earnings!?

Cheers for the congrats 👍🐬

Looks like SPUD got a few of us minnows shooting up the rankings! I’m loving it and thanks for my prize! One more week in league 2, league 3 here I come!

Up the #spud!

It wasn't a record power up day by any means but something the whole community could get involved in. Nice one!

I really am curious to see the analysis of #spud as they start to come out!

I would like to join your league.

Posted using Partiko Android

Of course you can join, we were waiting for you, you will be starting on level 1 and the new league post will be out next thur

Thanks for the @steemmonsters cards! And for running this league and encouraging us minnows. Dolphinhood is getting closer and closer. Congrats to everyone to all this moving and shaking!

you are most welcome @blueeyes8960, keep growing and enjoy the cards

Keep up the great work for the inspired community that want to grow and add value! Thanks!

as always, thank you for your support :-)

@raj808 comngratulations buddy!!! Made it!!! That was FAST!!!! Woo!

SPUD was awesome!!! Great to power up some!!! Fabulous work all!!

Thanks for the steem!

Posted using Partiko Android

Ha ha thanks 🙂

Not so fast though, I've been on steem since August 2017 posting nearly every day.

I've never took more out of steem than I put back in. In fact, I think if you take into account the steem I've bought, and what I took our to pay for flights to Krakow and steemfest 3, I've ended up putting around $500 worth of steem into the system over anything I've taken out.

Lol, this is what it takes to make dolphin without investing a lot of money... a lot of time, effort and hard work. Curie helped on this journey big time as I was curating for them for around 6 months and they voted many of my early posts.

It's all about the journey they say 🙂🙂

Oh you know what, I just read it wrong... I was reading about your RECENT growth!!! Sorry. I know it's a slog huh? I've been here since March ... worked butt off and with NM now for 41 weeks of running that too. Steem on! Phew! Yeah i reckon I'm about the same fiat investment wise. Xx

Thanks team!

I was so trying to break the 4000SP ceiling for your post this week that I didn't even think about where I would actually place. I can't believe I came in first for league 4... especially considering SPUD was happening. Thank you so much for my prize... I wasn't sure if you'd continue running this league, so I'm super excited to see this post today.

Yeps we are still running the leagues. What an amazing week, congraulations

Thank you @steemcommunity

you are most welcome @anroja

Thanks @steemcommunity, I wil try to do the best here. Please support me guys. Blessing

I see all round progress...whoopwhoop

Up, up, and away :D

and @thedarkhorse - not to long now I hope until you reach the next level.

Working on Been so busy with work lately, but I will get there soon!

Good man, steady progress will see you there :)

I hear ya, sure its taken me 3 days to catch up with this comment

Hey @steemcommunity.

Looks pretty similar to last week as far as growth goes, some mid but mostly lower three digit growth across the board, with the exception of @spooks, who came out of nowhere to shoot right into dolphin status! Congratulations! And also to @raj808 for becoming a dolphin. Well done.

As always,

Onward and upward.

Hi Glen

A couple of storming efforts this week, likely fueled by the motivation (even if not record-breaking) #spud that the likes of @raj808 took part in yesterday.

Good to see so many people in the lists, still powering up and not the other way.



Ha ha... Yeah the spirit of spud took me over and inspired my purchase of 800 steem 😉

Thanks for all the encouragement the minnow power up league has provided 🐬🙂

Posted using Partiko Android

@spooks came from nowhere, took everyone by surprise I think

If steem price holds, and my post makes it unscathed to pay-out, I should be a lot closer to level 2 next week, so maybe two more weeks, unless I decide to sell my Steem Monster Summoners, I still kind of hope for a turn around in the game, but we will see.

I know nothing about steemmonsters so I cant comment on that, but level 2 does sound good :-)

Getting there slowly, and the curie is going to help a bit this coming week if it hold together that is. Can't count those chickens until the eggs hatch.

That’s the hardest 250 SP of my Steem growth. It will take 8 weeks at this current rate. We will try and close that gap a little.
It will be hard the next couple of weeks.

no pressure so, 8 weeks will fly by, the summer is on its way :-)

8 weeks at 25 SP a week. Of course any more SP and the time because less. I am not to worried about it because it will happen. Unlike months ago it was way in the future or not at all, depending on the price of steem.

thanks. did some investing, but didn't think that i would be first. hope for a good summoner in the pack.

Posted using Partiko Android

Congrats on the investing, did you get any good cards

Thanks. The magi and peacbringer are ok. i thought i will get a summoner.

I beat you this week, @wolfhart! And I didn't even took part in the SPUD event! 😝

And why not? :P

I have a delegation expiring this week and I am still 11 STEEM short to renew it. 😱

You did good. Bring it on. 🤣 hahaha
its a team effort so I am a happy camper when anyone out performs me.
Way to many appointments over the next couple of weeks.
I hope your delegation is going well

I'd like to join the leagues @steemcommunity, it might inspire me to put in some more regular effort!

Awe, pushing hard for that next level!!
Thanks for keeping me motivated and thank you fellow power up minow crew. You are motivation to keep going too. Lets do this!!
