Earth, Wind, Fire and Water Combine to Make THE FIFTH SPUD - [steem] [blockchain]

in spud •  2 months ago 



With about nine days left before the Global event known as STEEM POWER UP DAY 5 takes place on the Steem Blockchain, I wanted to give the community a friendly reminder regarding SPUD.

SPUD4 had a 35%+ increase in participants that qualified for a shot at the four SPUD prizes. SPUD5 will have over 9,000 in Steem Power Delegation Prizes, and this time there will be 5 winners instead of four. SPUD5 now has more prize sponsors and more overall supporters. The SPUD initiative is growing and gaining more and more momentum with each and every event. With everyones' help, we can make SPUD5 a spectacular event that will make many in the Steem and crypto World take notice. Please help with creating your own Steem memes, artwork, and post. Let us put the SPUD hash tag back on the most popular hash tags list. Also please help out with up votes, comments, re-steems and any other means of support.

For now, here is what the SPUD5 PRIZES will be:*

1st Place -

- 2500 Steem Power Delegation for 3 Weeks - Sponsor = @xpilar
- 2000 Steem Power Delegation for 3 Weeks - Sponsor @sultan-aceh
- 15 Steem Power Gift - Sponsor = @steemit-nz

2nd Place

-1500 Steem Power Delegation for 3 Weeks - Sponsor = @reflektor
- 1000 Steem Power Delegation for 3 Weeks - Sponsor = @hingsten

3rd Place

-1000 Steem Power Delegation for 3 Weeks - Sponsor = @bippe

4th Place

- 750 Steem Power Delegation for 3 Weeks - Sponsor = @streetstyle

5th Place

- 250 Steem Power Delegation for 3 Weeks - Sponsor = @streetstyle

*(the prizes are subject to change if we get more sponsors or should a sponsor opt out.)

Rules to Win Prizes for SPUD5 :

MUST have a reputation score BELOW 69.00 ( so 68.99 is good & Can participate.) AND more than 150 STEEM POWER (prior to SPUD5) BUT LESS than 7501 Steem Power.

MUST have a reputation score ABOVE 42 (so rank of 41.99 will Not Win)

MUST have at least 1 Steem Post in their blog about SPUD5

MUST Power Up Steem on September 1st, 2019

On September 1st, you MUST make a post about your POWER UP. It can be as simple as "I powered up X amount of Steem" to a simple picture/screenshot of your Power Up and posted to your Steem blog, or it could be a super long dissertation on Steem Power. IMPORTANT: Use the SPUD and/or SPUD5 Hash tags so that I can be sure to see them.

The winner must meet all 5 requirements, and will be the one with the Biggest Steem Power Up PERCENTAGE, not the biggest Power Up. This means that it will be based on the ratio between your current amount of Steem Power and the amount you power up on August 1st.

For Example:

If you have 1000 Steem Power already powered up prior to September 1, and on September 1 you complete steps 1-5 with a 100 Steem Power Up,


another Steemian has 100 Steem Powered up prior to September 1, and on September 1st Powers Up 20 Steem, then this 2nd user would be winning with a 20% power up versus the first example with a bigger power up but smaller percentage of only 10% based on their account.

This prize is meant to incentivize the smaller Steemians, the planktons, minnows and barracudas out in the Steem Ocean to participate in powering up on SPUD, and hopefully create more understanding as to why Steem Power is what backs the Steem Economy. The winners will be announced via a Steem Post a few days later, and if no one challenges it or lets me know I missed them after 2 days from Winner Announcement, the Winners become official and the prizes will then be given out.

Thank you to All our Prize Sponsors, Truly Amazing!!

I'll add a prize.
The top 20 spuds according to your accounting will get 5 SBI levels each from me.

You'll let me know when you have them, which accounts should get the prizes?

Wow, that is SUPER DUPER since that literally makes for 20 possible winners.

I will include this in my next #spud prize update and Yes, I can post a list of the Steemians that Power up so we can award those 20 winners!!!

Thanks again @improv and if you do have any other ideas, suggestions or concerns, please do let me know so we can continue to make #SPUD5 better than the last!!

That was my thinking. More places means folks who don't have a chance at the top spots still will want to compete to get more powered up to get to the top 20... Hopefully.

I wonder if links to how to buy steem with fiat in posts about spud would help to. I wrote one a while ago...just a sec while I see what I can dig up.

hello @improv I have a quick question regarding the prizes you are offering. Does it mean that each person will receive 5 SBI shares?

Each of the top twenty will get 5 SBI levels from me, yes! (SBI is trying to get everyone to say levels instead of shares, because shares implies you can trade what you own, but that's not an intended use case)

Ah ok, makes sense. Will fix that too!

I am very proud to be a supporter of SPUD. What we might have to do is re-echo the #spud5 dress to make it more known to steemians. And your suggestion is very appropriate by making memes, posts and artwork as well as those done by @xpilar and other steemians who will be able to make the hashtag #spud and #spud5 skyrocket again so that all steemians will know and provide support.
I will also always try to give support.
One of the ideas that I also posted was to include SPUD ideas in comments that we give to large accounts with a large following. This will be able to increase the bang on the SPUD5 news.
This idea should not stop at one point scattered like the spread of a virus that will infect all Steemians with SPUD. Certainly not a virus in the bad sense. And I will do every time I find a post from a big account with a big influence in the right way.
Thank you @streetstyle
Warm regard from Indonesia

Thank you always for your enthusiasm and support for #spud @rokhani

Gracias amigo por mantener nos informados,esperando un resultado feliz y favorable,mucho que agradecerle ,desde aqui muchos saludos y que bueno tener amigos desde la distancia,pero el mundo da muchas vueltas ,5engamos fe como esperar salir de esto que cada dia me veo mas agobiada,que vivir tan malo amigo,aqui un sueldo de 30 dias es 3dolares,y maduro engañando a paises del mundo,espero y confio en la ayuda de EU,lo tiene acorralado a ver que decide,pero gente muriendo de hambre y otros en el hueso,no hay dinero para comprar,hay mucha comida pero con que se compra,este es un temamuy amplio que da rabia,saludos amigo Dios lo bendiga cuidese

Si estamos enterados pero tristemente la politica local y mundial alrededor del mundo no siempre toma la gente, el pueblo, en mente. El poder y el dinero ensiega a los que estan arriba.
Se que no es mucho, pero espero que esta ayuda le sirva de algo.

Cuidense, y esperamos que esto pronto termine.

@streetstyle de verdad has logrado reunir a muchas personas con esta iniciativa del SPUD5

Si @franciscana23 Parece que la comunidad esta interesado en esta iniciativa. Ojala logremos que mas usuarios de Steem no ayuden en levantar esta cryptomoneda para el mejor de todos!! #spud #spud5

Lets do this!!


Thanks for the support @steemit-nz and for sponsoring #spud prizes!!

I am in for #spud5 and will soon make a post about it..

Posted using Partiko Android

Awesome and thanks for helping the #spud initiative.

I wish I had spare Steem to power up.

Posted using Partiko Android

You can always buy some with fiat!

Posted using Partiko Android

That's ok @videoaddiction , all in due time. For now you can help supoort the #spud movement with up votes, re-steems and simply letting others know about the #spud5 Event. Thanks.


Posted using Partiko Android

Yes! You know I am in.

I am also getting a turbo boosted Marlians stake and am going to be rewarding tagged content leading up to and on the day.

Plenty of gain (including Marlians tokens) to be had by powering up!

Cool stuff @zekepickleman I have heard of Marlians tokens, just not sure what they are about. There are now some many projects and tokens on the Steem Blockchain, it is hard to keep up with it all.
Maybe you can enlighten us Marlians and their benefits as well as how you plan to support the #spud movement with a post? Let me know if you do. Thanks for all your help and support.

You bet. I will put together a post. In short, I have been given a stake so that I can give bigger rewards for the real constructive and unifying content. Marlians is for all of the individuals across the planet to share the wealth, and unifying on steem is power.

Ok great @zekepickleman Appreciate you help and support for #spud This initiative is gaining momentum more and more.

All the planet in this world will witness the next spud

Thanks for your support @doyi and yes, this is a global event!!

Impressive movement! Incredible support from many directions! You are making history of Steem!

We all are making history with #spud @kaminchan

Can't wait to power up on Sept. 1st.

I have been saving my steem for SPUD5, but because of other off-steemit stuff, may not be able to participate. I hope to, and I will be powering up.

Posted using Partiko Android

We appreciate any support no matter if it just an up vote, or a small power up or a resteem, it all helps. Thanks for doing your part @fionasfavourites Take care!!

What do you think about adding another rule to spud? That anyone who has powered down in the previous 90 days is ineligible.

Posted using Partiko Android

Hello @improv Thanks for your interest and support in #spud . I appreciate the your idea for a new rule, unfortunately since this is manually curated this would add a little more work to figuring out qualifies and who doesn't, especially since I would have to go back 3 months.
Since most of these are delegations, albeit nice sizes ones, no one is going to get rich from winning any of these prizes, but will at least feel the "power" of holding a nice chunk of Steem Power. This will hopefully inspire the winners and others to continue to power up their Steem in order to gain the benefits of Steem Power.
Take care and have a good one.

Totally. I guess it's more a matter of making it a rule so that you can enforce it IF you notice a problem. Assume that all's good and you don't need to check up on people, but if someone were gaming the system, they'd power down before the contest and then have more to power up on the day. But you're right that'd be a lot of effort for minimal return. ;)

All set for this next big Spud steemians can't wait !

You People are really crazy. Other ordinary steemiens should follow you people and must feel jealous by seeing the dedication level for this great platform.

I participated last time and sure going to do this month too though the amount would be negligible. But something is always better than nothing.

Posted using Partiko Android

Yes, we are hardcore Steem fans!!
Thanks for your support, and no matter if it is an up vote, resteem or a small power up, it all matters and counts. #SPUD is growing because we are crazy about the Steem Blockchain and its potential. #spud5 on the way with many great prizes!! Good luck!

Thank you so much for participating in the Partiko Delegation Plan Round 1! We really appreciate your support! As part of the delegation benefits, we just gave you a 3.01% upvote! Together, let’s change the world!
