The Steem News @ 3 June 2021 - Power Up SPECIAL !
This is a quick extra special edition of Steem News to share some exciting statistics.
Powering Up is working.
This month's SPUD4STEEM broke records.
And the latest stats from @steemchiller show that the numbers of Minnows, Dolphins, Orcas and Whales are all increasing.
Keep on Powering Up...
The Table of Sea Creatures
One of the clearest indicators of the growth of the platform is to look at the numbers of Minnows, Dolphins, Orcas and Whales.
These figures have been kindly supplied by witness @steemchiller.
He first calculated these stats on 11 May. He has now re-run them and they show increases in all categories.
This clearly shows that more people are powering up and more people are moving "up the food chain"...
|Category||SP||11 May '21||02 Jun '21||%|
|Redfish||under 500SP||1,516,244||1,534,110||+ 1.18%|
|Minnows||500SP - 4,999SP||5,890||5,927||+ 0.63%|
|Dolphins||5,000SP - 49,999SP||1,073||1,088||+ 1.40%|
|Orcas||50,000SP - 499,999SP||217||221||+ 1.84%|
|Whales||over 500,000SP||24||26||+ 8.33%|
This is excellent news and shows great progress.
These figures are only approximately 3 weeks apart. I wonder what we can achieve by the end of the year !
Congratulations to @kiwiscanfly and all the sponsors of the monthly SPUD4STEEM event, and to all the people that have been organising events and contests to encourage people to power up.
Personally my target is to reach 50,000 SP to become an Orca by the end of the year.
What's your target ?
This is an interim 'special' Steem News.
A full edition, with more details of the latest SPUD4STEEM event and the winners, along with all the rest of the news will be coming out later today.
Please also note that in the table above the Steem Power values for each 'sea creature category' are only approximate, as the 'raw data' supplied by @steemchiller is based on Vests not SP.
For example 'Minnows' refer to those people with 1,000,000 - 9,999,999 Vests, and 'Dolphins' refers to those with 10,000,000 - 99,999,999 Vests.
