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 @yogajill being first in the league this week with a massive power up of 204.12 SP. You also level up next week to level 2. Nice work!

Wow @steemcommunity, just love reading this every week ...

"All participants since joining have powered up a massive 272,223 SP"

... as it is a great indicator of how successful this initiative of yours has been.

Hats off to @bozz who has won a "double" on SBI shares this week, as he also claimed the "hot pink" "ohhh sooo close" award for #11 in CEL's weekly engagement post. Great job! And right at the brink of dolphinhood too. Great question on whether there's a dolphin group. I asked the same thing when I became an "orphan" ... 😉

Great job this week to the PIFC "gang" - @thedarkhorse, @bengy, @brittandjosie and @wolfhart. Very close @wolfhart. I hope you're on the "Wall of Fame" next week!

Congrats to all of this week's winner. Off we go into new week!

and hats off to you too, thank you so so much for this

I've gained a new name LOL


Thanks! :)

Wow! Thanks a ton. I am almost sad that I won't be part of this group in a week.

You have done extremely well and at least found the group before you achieved the milestone. Most likely knowing you this will be achieved in the next day or so. Congrats.

You will be on "Wall of Fame"👍

Is there a dolphin group? I feel I only just met you!!

Posted using Partiko Android

No doubt!

One a member of this community, always a member. But I can understand the sentiment! Week after week we are all trying to get to Dolphinhood. Everybody at his own pace. And when we do reach the goal, we are a little bit sad :)

Awesome! Thanks!

lol such bad news

Nearly there @bozz! Brilliant.

Be interesting to see what happens if we all SPUD June 1!!

Now I'm close to dolphin it's getting irritatingly slow .. might have to search for pennies under couch or stop giving it away lol x

Posted using Partiko Android

I have some rewards coming in within the next week that will push me there for sure. Every day is SPUD day for me. It is rare that I don't power up my earnings.

Apart from giving some away for contest I have never taken any out. It's all about the power up. However if we ever hit $8 again I am powering down and leaving lol

Posted using Partiko Android

Haha, I might be right behind you... Either that or I will sit back and rake in the passive income!

Hmmm! Again... This is a welcome surprise, but I think it is downhill for me from now. All the boosts that I got for doing plagiarism reporting have all finished. So just back to humble blogging again.

Thanks heaps for the prize!

Thank you for the warmth welcome. It took me almost a year to be minnow. I wonder how long would it took me to be a dolphin and graduate from this league. I never heard of dolphin power up league too. It sound like a rainbow future and also mysterious aura ahead.

Love free steem! Did what anyone should with their winnings and power it up x3, 7.5 steem powered up.

Love seeing the amount of powering up that is happening lately! If you have the ability I think people need to take advantage of these's just really starting to feel like good things are about to happen price wise.

Congrats to all winners! Also great to see the list of participants growing week by week!
But for me the history did repeat itself. Last week beaten with 4 points for 4th place by @cryptoandcoffe and this week again beaten for fourth place. Again with 4 points by this time by @rehan12.

Sorry Peter. I will try get out of your way quickly lol. It is good to see us all growing so well and it is way better than 6 months ago that is for sure. I am happy to see so much growth spread out amongst everyone as everyone has the same goal of reaching 5000 SP. It is a long run compared to the Red Fish league and has helped me immensely by staying focused.

It would be great to have you out of my way, because that would mean that you would have reached the finish line of this marathon! :)
Indeed it is a great motivation to keep on grinding. People do underestimate the power of a community combined with a little bit of competition!
But is also great to see how other people are trying to build their SP. Lesson can be learned from everybody! We all have different tactics and approaches, which makes this just superb!

LOL...sounds like you need to make an extra post a week to move up a slot.

Mhh, to earn 4 SP, I will need more like an extra post per day :)

lol..all you need to do is make a post with the title

"Push me to 3rd place this week"

and tell everyone how you don't want to be 4th again in a humorous you it nets more then 4sp before the liquid and sp earnings. But it wouldn't pay out until the following week...but still would be fun.

I will try it out! Nothing to loose anyway :)

tag me in the post...look forward to reading it

@bozz YEA! congratulations. I hope you remember all a small fish when you become a dolphin and perhaps drop 100% upvote on our post now and then ;)
I'll be swimming with you soon up there in the next league or so I hope! :D

No need to worry about that, I feel like I do a pretty good job of manually curating a lot of content.

:D You Rock~ Going to start and follow you then.

I remember when I finished at the top of the list, with a growth of just 80 SP or so. This time I'm at #10. Wow, people are really going crazy now!!!

I've already done all of my buying until December 2018. From now on, I'm going to grow organically. 😉

organic growth is the way to go, keep it up ( although i also invested a bit lol)

Congrats to everyone in the leagues... we're all here to grow, and to grow through "organic" means, which makes this a really cool group!

Thanks @steemcommunity for keeping this going, even from your current non-witness perspective. You are appreciated!

you are most welcome, thank you for the continued support

Congratulations to the graduates. What a milestone.

Such amazing numbers from the leaders, congratulations to you all. 👍👍

thanks for stopping by

Congrats to everyone who is in the league. you are winners for just being on the list as it shows you want to grow and are thinking long term. I cant believe I have less than 500 SP to go and it seems like such a little , but actually it is the equivalent of a Redfish lol. Goal will be achieved in June sometime if everything stays the same. Routing for Wolhart and Bozz to cross the line this week.Thanks again to @steemcommunity aka @paulag and @abh12345 for hosting this league and thank you for the much appreciated Steem.

wow you are not far at all, but yes, it is the size of a redfish :-)

Good morning Ma'am @paulag and @abh12345 for this initiative. I would like I may be included in this Minnow Power up League. I want to participate in this league. Thank you much again @cadawg for inviting me here.

of course you can join @olivia08, I have added your name and you will be starting on level 1, the new post will be out tomorrow

i want to join .

Posted using Partiko Android

you need to own 500+ sp for this league, however if you go onto my account there is a redfish league that I would love to see you enter

It was a long long haul, but thanks to steem monster card sales, I made it to level 2. I do appreciate the assistance tracking my progress, and the steem reward was very nice, thank you for that, it will of course be powered up and added to the growing of my personal vote power pool. Nice to see all the progress everyone is making.

nice work indeed, level 2 is fantastic progress

Congrats to all the winners and @bozz a little bit more to reach Dolphin hood :)

Thanks @paulag @abh12345 for all the support !!

I want to be in.
Or am I joining the wrong group (too early)?

Posted using Partiko Android

too early, you are on my redfish league :-)

I assume you let me know?
Thanks 💥💖

Posted using Partiko Android

How can I play?

hi @jadams2k18, to join this league you need 500+ of owned sp, however if you go to my account there is a league for accounts of your size, the redfish power up league, I would love you to join :-)

Thanks for the heads up.

Congratulations winners
Steem On 🎉🎉

I wish to be added to this league as well!


You were here at one point, but were removed because this looks like a @richatvns organized circle-jerk.

Either way, I'm not adding you again.

hello please add me to the league.

Thank you
