The Minnow Power-up League - Week #42

in #community3 years 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 @steemmonsters packs and STEEM -

The Minnow Power-Up League was created to encourage members of the community to invest STEEM and hold Steem Power. Holding Steem Power long-term is an excellent way to grow an individual account and bring stability and growth to the price of STEEM.

We now have 159 minnows that are growing and tracking their progress on the road to dolphin-hood. We also have 41 graduates. Together, last week the league members have powered up a total of 11,775.466 Steem Power. All participants since joining have powered up a massive 338,095.498SP. To learn more about this minnow initiative please do have a read of our introductory post:


A big shout out and a warm welcome to the new league entrants the last few weeks week - @shaungerow, @wandrnrose7,@nickyhavey and @contrabourdon. We are happy to have you join us.

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.

That's it for this week, cheers all!


Every morning we wake up as the sun rises on a new day. Heading into it, we always face an open question @steemcommunity - "Is the glass half full or half empty?"

A great week for answering the question and powering up, if you're inclined to the "half full" side of life ... Looks like my Australian friend @veryspider took this approach! 😊 Therefore, one SBI share registered for her to "keep on keeping on" ... 👍

Great to see the progress everyone is making, in the face of a declining market (again ...). I always enjoy seeing my fellow PIFC community members doing well. Great job @trincowski making it into the "Land of the Dolphins!" You are now officially an "orphan" like me ... Haha 😉 [Note: Interesting to see you also started on Sept. 20, but you ended much higher up on the Wall!]

"Onward and upward" into a new week!

Thanks very much for the sponsorship Rob!

I like it I like it come on @veryspider, @steemflow, @georgemales and @jeffjagoe lets see that graduation this week and congrats to @fullcoverbetting you'll be hitting dolphin before me, looks like I owe you that beer

43 weeks to go from 500 SP to 5000 SP. This is roughly 100 SP per week, so cool! 😎

100 SP a week is a pretty good clip to have maintained over that period of time. Nicely done @trincowski!

It was hard, sometimes. But I made it! 😊

Congratulations, 100 STEEM a week not too shoddy at all :)

If I know that my growth is monitoring by @steemcommunitu... I will power up myself as fast as I can 😂😁 I forget about this league! Thanks anyway... i need to stop pledge for GUILD to the max😆

I completed the challenge this week. 43 weeks to go from 500 SP to 5000 SP.
I wonder where I'll be a year from now...

Good luck for you, @cicisaja! Keep converting those SteemMonsters games into Steem!

Congratulations @trincowski 😉 the dolphinhood is right at the corner... you'll be there when Steem is up again.
And.. I'll grow the way Im comfort with 72 weeks for me from plankton to minnowhood... I think I need 5 years to be a dolphin😂😂😂

I'm already a Dolphin. Next step is Orca but I won't even bother trying. I'll just take it easy from now on. If I get there one day, cool. If not, no worries.

Good good, another week and a little more SP :D

Yay! Thank you @steemcommunity for the warm welcome!

Our pleasure! :)

Boom! Looking forward to tracking the journey to dolphinhood 😁

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...

... you can :)

Woot!, 4th place this week. Thanks again @paulag and @steemcommunity.

Very good, keep on going :)

Not a lot, could have been a little bit more, but with other new coins to play with, some steem has been going over to the Steem Engine to play around with. But still plodding along.

I think that's what others are doing too, but could make sense to keep building SP too.

Yeah, I never send it all over, I have things I need to use steem for, but it is still fun playing in some of the other sand boxes. Fortunately or not, most of the rewards are in SP, so not a lot of sbd or steem to play with. In fact I had to spend my last two SBD's when one was buying 3.5+ of steem. So now for the very slow SBD build back to 5 or 10.

What an amazing week for everyone, congratulations to all! 🙏

Thanks and have a good week @wonderwop :)

Wow thank you! Glad to be part of this league!

Wow, thanks so much for the Steem! I came in second in my level 2 division! It makes me hungry for dolphinhood

Congrats to all the accounts that made progress this week. Big congrats to those who powered up enough to win one of the coveted spots on the leaderboard. It sure does feel great!!

Hey, @steemcommunity.

There we go. Some higher three digit growth. Maybe the drop in price helped again? At any rate, nice to see a little larger movement.

Congratulations to the three who became dolphins this time around—@trincowski, @jeronimorubio and @anthonyadavisii. Good to see your names on the Wall of Fame, and to have you in the ranks.

Onward and upward.

Great work everyone :) Could I be added please?
