- SPUD8- Digging Deep to Reach So High -

It is once again just about that time where we, members of the Steem community, come together with one common cause; to lock up that STEEM into STEEM POWER. Recently SPUD met its cousin in @sbdpotato , who's cause is to raise the price of the STEEM DOLLAR (SBD) in order to peg it back to 1 US Dollar, and thereby hopefully also positively affecting the price of STEEM. I believe that SBD POTATO has been very successful in its short time striving for this achievement. The price of SBD has risen sharply in the last few days, and looks to go up around another 20% where it will hit the Dollar mark with the efforts of SBD POTATO. Also, the STEEM price has gone down to some of its lowest prices ever, and now risen slightly up.

Now it is SPUD's turn to dig deep, spread its roots and sprout the biggest yield of STEEM POWER yet! The prizes for those qualifying entrants has grown steadily every month, and now for SPUD-8, there will be over 12500 STEEM POWER Delegations and other prizes.

Here is the list to the SPUD 7 WINNERS.
- Will they Power Up enough to keep their delegations or will we see new winners?

What is SPUD and How Will It Help?

For those who do not know what SPUD is, STEEM POWER UP DAY (SPUD) takes place the first day of every month.
On this day:

  • 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 SPUD Day, but to do it the day before or after if possible. Also, to cancel any type of Sell Order on the Exchanges.

SPUD 8 PRIZES


The prizes are meant to incentivize the smaller Steemians, the planktons, minnows and aspiring Dolphins out in the Steem Ocean to participate in powering up on SPUD, and hopefully create more understanding as to why Steem Power is what makes the Steem Economy.

Rules to Win Prizes for SPUD8 :


MUST have a reputation score BELOW 69.00 ( so 68.99 is good & Can participate.) AND more than 150 STEEM POWER (prior to SPUD8) 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 SPUD8

MUST Power Up Steem on December 1st, 2019

On December 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 SPUD8 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 December 1st.

For Example:

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

and

another Steemian has 200 Steem Powered up prior to December 1, and on December 1st Powers Up 40 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.
__

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 SPUD Prize Sponsors and to all SPUD supporters and participants working to get STEEM to higher Elevations!!

FULL STEEM AHEAD!

Cheers & Good Luck!

Hello @streetstyle! This time I will participate again. I've been powering up STEEM in the last few days but now I will save it for SPUD8. I'm powering up almost all my Splinterlands winnings. My goal is to reach Dolphin before 2020 begins, I need 414 more SP :)

Wow you are almost there! Wow, you must be doing good on #SPLINTERLANDS I just started to play but wish I had from the beginning. Thank you for supporting #spud8 Take care.

Oh! You didn't realize!

My prize offerings are for every spud forevermore.

Sorry @improv I didn't.... but I will add you to the prize sponsors on my next post and of course from now on too! Thank you for being an amazing sponsor for #spud8 I am actually really happy now because this #spud has been a blow out, and was starting to feel bad having so many new participants and only 5 or so prizes... this is game changer @improv THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Now we'll have around 21 prizes or so, so grateful for that!! Take care and again my apologies for not realizing you are sponsoring until the end of blockchain!

I wanna join the community but still don't understand the post yet. I'll put my possible best to get into this initiative

For those who do not know what SPUD is, STEEM POWER UP DAY (SPUD) takes place the first day of every month.
On this day:

We ask that Steemians that are able, to POWER UP any amount of STEEM they have on SPUD day.

We ask that those that trade or sell Steem to Not Sell or Trade Steem on SPUD Day, but to do it the day before or after if possible. Also, to cancel any type of Sell Order on the Exchanges.

It is free. If you don't have any STEEM to convert to STEEM POWER, then just up voting and re-steeming #spud posts is support too!
Good luck and take care.

Thank you very much. I'll join the community tomorrow
