May the SPUD FORCE Be with You

The journey for SPUD XI rocket begins again under a new dawn for the STEEM Blockchain. Improvements, or at least changes, are happening at lightning speed now on the STEEM network, which is fantastic compared to the stagnant "waters" from STEEM's past.

Now is A GREAT TIME to Launch your SPUD!

The links of the STEEM blockCHAIN have been coated with an extra layer of strengthening softfork protection. Never before has the STEEM Blockchain enjoyed this much tensile strength to our links (except maybe when @dan & @ned were still buddies). If you believe in Bitcoin, if You believe in cryptocurrency, if you believe in Steem, if you believe mankind actually landed on the Moon, if you believe that crypto will still be here in 5 years (if the Coronavirus or the Corona beers haven't killed us all), THEN NOW is the TIME to secure your future IN THE STEEM BLOCKCHAIN, and nothing does it BETTER than LOCKING UP your STEEM POWER.

Under this new Dawn, SPUD XI begins its chase after the SUN, bringing light to all the FUD. It is always coldest JUST before Daybreak but the warm IN the rays of light will make the STEEM rise!

STEEM ARMY, may the SPUD Force be with You on this next leg of our journey.

ps. I WILL BE ADDING 1000 extra STEEM POWER Delegation to the Prizes, upping the total in prizes to over 14000+ in SP Delegation prizes and others. This will be a random prize for one of the 20 prize winners based off of @traciyork's prize winner (see below for more info.)

What is SPUD and How Will It Help?


SPUD stands for 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 XI PRIZES (updated)

13,000+ 14000+ in Steem Power Delegation 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 important to user account growth as well as a show of Steem Blockchain support.

Rules to Win Prizes for SPUD XI :

MUST have a reputation score BELOW 69.00 ( so 68.99 is good & Can participate.) AND more than 250 STEEM POWER (prior to SPUD XI) BUT LESS than 8000 Steem Power.
MUST have a reputation score of 40 & ABOVE (so rank of 39.99 will Not Win)

MUST have at least 1 Steem Post in their blog about SPUD XI

MUST Power Up Steem on MARCH 1st, 2020

On MARCH 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: SHOULD USE SPUDXI Hash tag so that I can be sure to see them.

The winners Must meet all 5 requirements, and it will be based on 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 MARCH 1st.

For Example:

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

and

another Steemian has 300 Steem Powered up prior to MARCH 1, and on MARCH 1st Powers Up 60 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 or sooner, and if no one challenges it or lets me know I missed them after 1 day 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!

Thank you for following through on this commitment @xpilar. I just found it this morning and very surprised by it. So, in tracing it back, I found this comment. I appreciate you being a person of integrity, who does what they say.

"May your tribe increase!" 👍


P.S. This will increase my MVest support of Witnesses which will hopefully be able to undo the mess we find ourselves in.

thank you for your kind words @roleerob
150 SP is not much, but it certainly helps some

Wow, that is AWESOME @xpilar THANK YOU for supporting #spud and helping to make this #spudxi #spud11 even better. You and your team, and now I see your community too are THE BEST!!

..enjoy..steem on!..

Happy #MAR2020SPUD!
But I will admit SPUD-XI also sounds cool and the logo looks professionally awesome.
3.1 is a holiday in Korea so it's another reason to celebrate, but corvid gots us trapped inside mostly.

Thanks @abitcoinskeptic and yeah, I do like #spudxi too, and again, you are partially responsible for the inspiration, getting me to think outside the box. Thanks, take care, especially with that virus. I hope it all turns out well for everyone, it seems as though this is getting serious. Gulp.

Thanks. I think trying to make every spud feel unique will help keep it exciting.
