The Minnow Power-up League - Week #44

in #community2 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 47 graduates. Together, last week the league members have powered up a total of 10,781.389 Steem Power. All participants since joining have powered up a massive 358,821.667SP. To learn more about this minnow initiative please do have a read of our introductory post:

Let's Grow Together

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 @phoenixwren being first in the league this week with a massive power up of 267.468SP.

Thank you SteemCommunity and especially Paula and Asher for creating and maintaining this power up league. This weekly league has definitely motivated me to attain my goal reaching 5k Steem Power. Congrats to all the other league victors as well, especially to jeffjagoe who also graduated today.

It's been fun and thanks for all the fish :D.

With prices at these historically low levels, great time to power up for those so inclined - + 10K SP this week. Great!

1 SBI share registered for this week’s overall power-up winner @cmplxty. Very nice with a jump now to Level 3! Congratulations to @scrawly and @jeffjagoe for getting over the line and onto the Wall of Fame! 👍

“Onward and upward” into a new week!

P.S. Noting you have more than the historic 5 tags only, did I miss somewhere that we should now be adding more and they still "count?"

Thank you :D.

And it's very kind of you to sponsor people from this league, that's really awesome of you :).

My pleasure @scrawly. Just doing my teeny, weeny part to provide a little encouragement here and there ... 😊

If you are feeling bold, now seems like a great time to buy more STEEM.

Thanks for the sponsorship @roleerob, very kind :)

As far as the tags, steempeak allows 10 now and I think actifit is many more. They will count as far as the tribes go, just don't try editing the post in though :)

@leysa I think you should join this! (@paulag)

Congrats @phoenixwren! Your SBI share has been submitted.

Thank you very much for your sponsorship @contrabourdon :)

Thanks, @contrabourdon! I appreciate it! Loves me some SBI.

Wow! It feels so good to be a dolphin and to finally be on the Wall of Fame! Thanks for featuring me! I appreciate the support :)

Nice one Jeff! Slow and steady has won the race :)

Thanks @abh12345! Took me a longgggg time to get here, but I admittedly shoveled some steem away throughout the years. Regardless I hope to never lose my dolphin status !

Thank you so much, and see you at level 2 next time! :)

(waves to my fellow level graduate)

Congratulation! Your result is impressive!

Thanks! And you, too! :D

Our pleasure, well done :)

Sweet, home stretch @brittandjosie, looks like we're graduating soon, hope to see you in league 4 next week with me. Congrats to @cmplxty for SPUDing this month, welcome to league 3, sure it wont be a long stay for you their either.

Looks like we will have 3 more dolphins soon, keep on spudding everyone

After edging over the actifit line last night, i'm surprised you've got any spuds left :D

LOL Winners never quit, you're a man fan you should know fergie time/squeekie bum time is when the real men show what they're about

@chekohler I hope so but these days are tough though
But the league is great just As(her) the other one hahaha @abh12345

Wow... I have powered up all my steem and happy news comes. Thanks @steemcommunity for this league. I am very happy join here. Blessing

Great stuff, you are welcome :)

Hey, @steemcommunity.

A couple of people hit higher triple digit growth this week, so some larger investment taking place it looks like. The price pretty much came down and has stayed down for over a week, it seems like, so maybe that's helping those who can spend a little money.

Kudos to all who are on the list and who continue to power up.

And a warm welcome and extended hand of fellowship to those who made it to the the Wall of Fame this week by reaching dolphin status: @scrawly and @jeffjagoe. Congratulations to the both of you. How's the view? :)

As always, onward and upward.

Thanks Glen :D.

The view is ... not much changed actually hahaha, but it's a good feeling to reach my personal goal.

I find it sweet that you have graduated since a long time ago but you're still here and following the league.

Hey, @scrawly.

I don't do a whole lot of community-oriented things other than participate in the Engagement League (which has now been curtailed thanks to work) so I figure its the least I can do. I got a pretty warm welcome when I became a dolphin thanks to some other dolphins, so that's a motivation, too. It's an achievement that not many people can say they've done, and while we're not the smallest group on STEEM, we generally don't get to where we are without time and effort and some skin in the game. :)

Hi Glen

Thanks for dropping by to check on the new dolphins and the like. I guess they could be asking you how the view is?

I hope the job is going well. I had a phone interview and they would like to speak in person on Monday, so we shall see.

Onward and upward.

Hey, @abh12345.

That's good news about the speaking in person. You're a step closer I would say. I hope it's what you need and that it works out for the best.

I think things are going okay. It's hard to tell sometimes, since I've kind of free floating in my own area while a lot of the other folks see each other day in and day out. I come down to the shop once a week to replenish the van with product for the various games that take them (mostly crane games, but they include other prize oriented machines).

While I actually do enjoy setting my own schedule, adapting the route depending on what's going on, and otherwise working alone, it does have a disconnect. I get to keep out of the office politics for the most part, but I don't always know how I'm doing or fitting in. I've heard I'm doing well enough, just haven't had a break down of what I'm doing fine with and what I need to do better, and then how I could do that.

It's more the sink or swim variety, which isn't as bad as it might have been twenty-five to thirty years ago when I only thought I knew what good work was. :)

Thanks @glenalbrethsen! It sure feels great to be a dolphin :)

I'm glad to hear that. I don't know that most of us make it here without some form of investment, certainly of time, if not actually fiat, too, just because of the climb. So, it's good to know that there is a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment, because the achievement (becoming a dolphin) is definitely worthy of it. :)

Hooray! I never place first in these things, I has excite! :D
Thank you @steemcommunity for the Steem Monsters cards, and to @contrabourdon for the SBI share!
I'm just so excited to finally make it out of level 1 after slowly working my way up for so long. It wouldn't have happened had I not won the DTube contest. ^_^
Congrats to all the other winners!
Hey, can I sponsor an SBI share for the largest power up in level three?

Great work! Now is a great time to get busy and accumulate that Steem!

I maybe should have help them a bit longer, but thanks to the dporn tokens I was able to have a nice power up. likely the only reason I had more than 8 SP to power up. I do like the sudden growths.

I would love to join so my sp will rise up, usually I made content 4 times a day but it won't earn much because of my sp and maybe because I have no steem to invest. So if it's fine to join, will you include me?

I think we can. @paulag? :)

sorry you need 500+ sp to join this league, keep doing what you are doing and you well there there

oh, too bad..but okay thanks for giving time for letting me know
