It's Official, SPUD4 Has Begun in Places Like Fiji and New Zealand - [steem] [blockchain]

in #spud2 years ago


It's Time for SPUD4

Although many people in places like Fiji and New Zealand are probably asleep right now, technically it is August 1, 2019 in that part of the World. Steem Power Up Day 4 has now begun on the Steem Blockchain and will continue until the day ends in places like American Samoa which is just now beginning its day of July 31.

Not sure, but does that make SPUD like a 48 hour international event on the Steem Blockchain?

How to SPUD4 on August 1, 2019

We ask that Steemians that are able, to POWER UP any amount of STEEM they have on SPUD day.
We ask Steemians that are currently Powering Down, to put a Stop on Powering Down for that Day, and if desired to commence the Power Down the following day.
We ask that those that trade or sell Steem to Not Sell or Trade Steem on August 1, 2019, but to do it the day before or after if possible. Also, to cancel any type of Sell Order on the Exchanges.

Rules to Win Prizes for SPUD4 :

  • MUST have a reputation score BELOW 69.00 ( so 68.99 is good & Can participate.) AND more than 75 STEEM POWER (prior to SPUD4) 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 SPUD4

  • MUST Power Up Steem on August 1st, 2019

  • On August 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 SPUD4 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 August 1, and on August 1 you complete steps 1-5 with a 100 Steem Power Up,


another Steemian has 100 Steem Powered up prior to August 1, and on August 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!!

Cheers Everyone, and Happy SPUDDING!

PS, SPUD4 could use this information in all the different languages used on the Steem Blockchain, thank you!!

Animation by @grisvisa and @eddiespino


This round earth is divided into two parts namely the western hemisphere and the eastern hemisphere. Because the earth rotates from east to west, the SPUD time will be faster in the eastern part of the earth. Longitude is used to determine the time of course we can understand, so that the countries in the east end, which are located at 180 degrees longitude will do SPUD earlier. And it will move westward until the longitude of 180 degrees west longitude.
So of course SPUD will be whole in various parts of the world through this blockchain.
Thank you @streetstyle for this brilliant idea that is getting stronger and bigger.
Thank you all sponsors: @xpilar, @sultan-aceh, @flipstar and @taliakerch, @jlsplatts, @davedickeyyall, @traciyork.

Not yet even in India at its 7.26pm 31 Juy so have to wait for tommorow morning to perform the action.

UP, UP, UP POWER-UP that Steem you crazy SPUD people!! Hahaha. This is going to be EPIC!! I am really anxious to see how much Steem gets powered up for #SPUD4

@steemit-nz was probably the first one in the whole world to power up on #SPUD4 for 120 steem power. Only like 46 hours or so more to go before #SPUD ends on the Global Steem Blockchain.

Here in Venezuela it would start tomorrow. Today is July 31 here.

It's 4.30pm on 31 July 2019 in South Africa. Powering up tomorrow is on my "to-do" list. I've been squirelling away waiting for tomorrow.... ;)

Cool, South Africa. That's what I mean about Steem and #spud being global. Amazing. And thank you for you support of the #spud4 initiative.

And so we begin! Spud 4

Yay #SPUD4!

SPUD4 animated gif.gif

And just to clarify two small things -

  • If by "Steem Coins" you mean I'm going to be sending Steem from my wallet to theirs, then yes, that's what I'm doing (sending a total of 4 Steem to the top two winners).

  • I'm also planning to 100% upvote the second place winner (and maybe more, depending on how badly I abuse my VP...LOL!).

Looking forward to seeing all the Powering Up!

I will amend the 2nd place prize. Again, thanks for all you have done to support and now sponsor prizes for #spud4

Yah man! I have been saving up my steem for the spud. I have about 14 hours in eastern standard time before aug 1.

Looks like that little spud in the animation has eaten the blue pill and it is doing wonders for his arm strength.

Congrats on the spud and I will be right behind you.

It is almost time @zekepickleman and yea, I like that gif too. I didn't think about calling it the blue pill though, hehehe, good one. #spud4

Excellent gif, continuing unconditional support for this project.
