A Most Memorable SPUD5 Breaks the Blockchain - [steem] [steempower]

in spud •  15 days ago

Strong But Not That Strong


The Steem Blockchain hiccuped after the recent hardforks. No one said getting to the top was easy. Battered and bruised but we made it.

Some say SPUD5 and all that Powering Up brought the Steem Blockchain to its knees. SPUD5 was strong but not that strong. This was more likely a coding issue due to the recent hardforks that the Steem Blockchain recently underwent.

Regardless, this SPUD5 will be a memorable one for many I am sure.

Have a great Day Everyone!!

I would also like to thank @streetstyle for doing a great job with SPUD, without you, this great job would not have been done.

SPUD is growing every time and it is also visible outside the competition, thanks to everyone for their support of SPUD

To all Steemians join SPUD6 and show their muscles in our great community

Prizes from @improv sent!

Thanks for your support @improv and your contribution to the #spud movement. Not sure how the hardforks have affected SBI, but it is a project I only recently learned about and am now supporting too! Hope it continues to do the good work that it does after these hardforks. Anyhow, thanks again. Take care!

I do, too. The curve is rough. But SBI is resiliently designed to be sustainable. If it continues to grow, and gets well-understood by the whales, it'll be a great part of driving up the value of steem and the steem ecosystem.

I just did the drawing for 5 Steem. To choose the winner, I used the random generator over at RandomResult.com.

Here's the list of names I entered -

WHOO HOO! Given all the roadblocks for this #SPUD, the amount of participation is even more impressive!

I'll drop the 32 names in a cyber hat at some point over the next day or so, then I'll back to announce the winner of my drawing.

Thanks again for countering all the blockchain FUD with the awesomeness that is SPUD, @streetstyle!

Nice!!

Pure power!

Thanks @streetstyle for putting such an awesome initiative together & Congrats to all the winners... \m/

SBIs have been sent and your BRAAIB tokens will be sent shortly (I didn't get my multi-user distribution script wrapped up in time, so I'm gonna do this one by one :-))

Thanks for you support and participation in #spud Take care @braaiboy

I participated, but didn't get around to telling you about it! I am writing a post about it now! :-)

Thanks for your interest and support of #spud . There will be a #spud6 on 10-1-19, see you then!

You've got it! :-)

Good initiative! Next #SPUD6 must be stronger than this, once we exit from this weird period of time and we ensure the Blockchain performance

Posted using Partiko iOS

It was just bad timing for #spud5 due to the Steem Blockchain going through a hard fork just a few days earlier, and I believe a second one after that. I guess the code broke somewhere, causing many not being able to Power Up on that day of #spud. Hopefully there won't be any hard forks for a long time so this won't happen for #spud6
Thank you and take care. Feliz tarde.

🎁 Hi @streetstyle! You have received 0.1 STEEM tip from @traciyork!

Sending tips with @tipU - how to guide :)
