Announcing the Minnow Power Up League

in #engagement2 years ago (edited)

There is no better time than now to accumulate STEEM Power. Prices are low, all pay-outs are in SP and STEEM, and the blockchain is not as busy as it was. This is an opportunity to grow and when the next wave comes, you will be bigger and better than ever.

adapted from source

By powering up and growing your account you will have higher SP and guess what higher SP means?

  • Higher SP = higher vote value
  • Higher vote value = you can reach more people
  • Higher SP = proof of long term vision
  • Higher SP = greater chance of support from larger accounts

With that in mind we are pleased to announce the Minnow Power UP league. Taken directly from the weekly Redfish Power Up League hosted by @paulag, and with some eager graduates wanting to track the growth from Minnow to Dolphin, today we are taking names, and the first league post will be out in a weeks time.

The Aim of the challenge is to grow your SP. It’s a long way to grow from Minnow to Dolphin, from 500SP to 5000SP. So, to make things a little more fun and motivating, we are going to run 4 Levels:

  • Level 1: 500SP to 1500SP
  • Level 2: 1500SP to 2500SP
  • Level 3: 2500SP to 3500SP
  • Level 4: 3500SP to 5000SP

How to enter and rules

To enter the Minnow Power Up League all you have to do is comment in any of the Minnow Power Up League posts saying you want to be included, and the following week we will add you to the data. It’s opt in only, and those who register will remain on the list unless they asked to be removed.

To enter you must have a 500 owned SP or more. You will be automatically entered into the correct level.

Prizes will be awarded at each level; however, prizes will not kick in on a level until it has a minimum of 5 participants.

Delegated SP will be excluded, both in and out. We will be working from owned SP values only.

These rules are not fixed and may change over time. Your feedback is welcome.

How it will work

We will be using @steemsql to gather the data. Each week we will update the workings with the SP owned on that day. This will be used to calculate your growth since joining the league (total growth) and the grow for the current week.

Rankings will be based on growth for the current week.


Prizes will be sponsored by @steemcommunity and the team members accounts and are yet to be confirmed.

Do you want in? Drop and comment below and we will make sure you are included in the first week’s league.

Follow @steemcommunity so you find the weekly post in your feed.

Kind Regards

The @steemcommunity witness team: @abh12345, @paulag, and @c-csquared


Any profit made by promoting this post will become a part of the prizes for the Minnow Power-up League.

Dear @steemcommunity I would like to minnow up to dolphin so would you please take me on 😉 now that I Am 500+

I have a lot of catching up to do since my vacation. Is @steemcommunity now a joint witness account with @c-squared? I haven't been following along much since life has been super busy when my kiddo started school, but I have seen members branching out of curie helping to support many accounts on @c-squared.

This is an interesting initiative. Count me in and I will help if abled! I don't post often so it might be slow growth.

I would love to participate. Very cool initiative! Thank you

hi there @mcoinz79 and welcome to the league. I took your starting SP as of yesterday to be 1018.876 so that will put you on level 1

Not there yet but would love to join once I reach the 500SP mark!
To bad I won't qualify anymore for the redfish competition :(

But both are great initiatives! I'll be back! 😎

Good stuff! Yes we are hoping the League will encourage engagement and retention - we need a lot of both right now!

Yayyyyy!!!! So excited and happy the idea has now reached fruition!!! HUGE Congratzzz, @paulag, @abh12345 and @c-csquared!!! I'll be joining as soon as I hit the 500 SP level. ;)

yepeeeee you were one of the ones to help push for this. we are going to see the most awesome pod of dolphins jump out of here in no time

Please include me. :)

of course I will include you, with SP yesterday of 907.965 you will be starting on level 1

Count me in, I am getting to where I like being able to figure out what I am doing, and of course it is always better to have someone else do the heavy work, then all I need to do is copy the data and compare it week over week.

736.906 is your starting SP putting you on level 1. Thanks for joining, glad to have to on board

very cool initiative! gotta find a vote to move around for you guys ;)

That sounds good to us, cheers! :D

I do want to learn more, I have a feeling this is just a tip of the iceberg lettuce...

awesome - witness votes are most welcome

I bet! I have 25 accounts proxied to me also :P (all plankton)

I'm in. This isn't even my final form. 😏

I would love to be included too. I came across this thanks to a resteem of anthonisadavisii :)

This is an excellent idea! I definitely want to be IN! Thank you very much for this invitation!

Glad you like it and even happier to have you on board. You will be starting on Level 2 as your SP yesterday was 2398.50

Great, thanks a lot! :-)

i want to join but my sp just 100. hiw can i join here?

ahhhhh my good friend, I am sorry but you will have to wait till you own 500SP. But the redfish league will help you track that one

Brother @hattaarshavin, I think you would like to see it.

Yes please count me in! Minnows unite, lets get to dolphin hood people!

Yes please count me in!
Minnows unite, lets get to
Dolphin hood people!

                 - chekohler

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

of course I will add you, its my pleasure. Your starting SP is 739.508 so that puts you on level 1

Thanks so much, ready to tackle level one. So only need to double up now to teach level 2! Super keen!

You are going so fast

Lol the race to dolphin waits for no man or woman, Fastest finishes first

I am swimming as hard as I can

I want to be a part of it...
Increasing Sp is fun and doing it in the form of group/community will be even more fun...
Now I can have inspiration from the fellow league members and also increase my connections and reach for better visibility....

Glad to see this coming to life! I'm a minnow "in name only" (via delegation) but part of Paula's Redfish league... but now I know where I will be going once I reach minnowhood, on my own!

Overall, LOVE these community based initiatives!


please enter me @paulag, I am interested after reading it

I'd love to participate. I've been powering up as much as I can and it's nice to see some progress. It's a little slower than I'd like, but it's progress nonetheless. It will be fun to see how my progress goes from week to week.

Hey, @steemcommunity.

Okay, so I go and take advantage of the lower STEEM prices and then you come out with this! Now that puts me in tier four rather than in tier two. Guess I'm glad I didn't try to do more, or I wouldn't be able to participate at all. :)

Please count me in.

Will there be any rules forthcoming as to how this growth can be achieved each week? Or should I go and look at what was established for The Redfish League?

hay @glenalbrethsen, yep its level 4 for you. We dont have strict rules, you can win steem, buy steem, earn steem, but I think I will stop at robbing steem and rules that one out. the trick is to power it up now matter how you get it.

Hi, @paulag.

I was principally wondering about those who might purchase bidbot votes with STEEM or SBD. Granted, minnows aren't supposed to have a bunch of STEEM or SBD lying around that might make it worthwhile. I'm guessing it's not been a big deal in the Red Fish leagues. :)

Ma'am, pardon me for asking, what does "robbing STEEM", mean.

Guess I'm glad I didn't try to do more, or I wouldn't be able to participate at all. :)


Hi, Glen.

Hey, @aneukpineung78.

What do you think about all of this?

This is another good thing on the blockchain. And I believe that it is a right time to buy STEEM and power up. I have made this plan couple month ago that I'm gonna start investing in STEEM in September, but I finally found out I have to postpone.

I hope everything is good at home, Glen. How's your wife.

She is good. She saw the surgeon on Wednesday and was cleared to go back to work the beginning of October. As long as she doesn't get crazy and do a bunch of things while she's visiting her sisters in Mexico, she should be okay.

Well, that's too bad about the investment. I probably could have waited an extra day for the additional five cent dip, but not knowing when/if that's going to happen had me waiting a few weeks to buy anyway.

Hope it works out that you can buy some before the prices go up again.

It's good to hear the progress with your wife, Glen.

About the investment, don't worry, time will come for me. I hope soon. 😀

I am in. Thanks for initiative!

Always in for a great contest which does encourage people to grow on the blockchain!
So count me in :)
Will see how it works. And if there are enough competitors, I will maybe offer the same sponsorship as with @abh12345 engagement league!
Great initiative!

how cool Peter, its looking good for numbers already, but I still have to separate out everyone to their levels and make sure there are enough people for each level.

You will be starting on level 1. Dolphinhood here you come

If there are enough people in level 1. I will sponsor the lucky number 25 each week an SBI share. I will do this till the end of the year. We will see from there!
Great initiative!

@paulag woo hooo yay! thank you so much :)

Looks amazing!
I wish us low levels could join in too.
I will try get 500SP soon and opt in!
Good luck with this project! I will come here more often to see how it is going.

you could join the redfish power up league if you are not already in it

This sounds fun.

Add me please ^_^.

Seems the more SP I have, the lower my vote so I'm giving some of it away.

lol everyone's vote is getting lower, its just because of the price of steem, but if you really want to give it away I will gladly take it :-)

Tell me something I don't know; the price of Steem went up a bit, my vote still went down. Sorry, you are not on my list for free Steem; you are not poor enough to qualify. Besides, I already made my transfer today, it's public information. Greetings!

My understanding is that the witnesses are using a 3 day average so it is still reeling from the last few days.

If you want to delegate some SP. I will accept it happily.

oh sounds like a very good initiative ! i want IN :D

hi @veryspider and welcome to the power up league. Dolphinhood here we come :-)

Dolphinhood \o/ ......almost rhymes with Robinhood ??? :thinking emoji:


Welcoming all engaged minnows who are powering up in search of 5k dolphin status!

Well I'm powering up @abh12345 but feel a very long way from dolphin status.

Please add me to the league though and let's see how it goes. 😁

I have added your name. Your starting SP taken yesterday was 2326.311. You will be starting on Level 2

Thank you @paulag. It will be interesting to see how this pans out. 😊

I would loved to be included in the minnow power up league!!!

Your timing couldn't have been better for me. I just graduated from the redfish power up league 2-3 days ago and I was wondering if I could maybe join a program that would help me and fellow steemians of the same level track their progress.

Once again.... Thanks!!!

Too bad, I can't be in, don't have up to 500SP 😖😖😖
