It is Time to Get Our Pump On - SPUD8 PRIZE UPDATE - [steem][blockchain][community]

in #spudlast year (edited)


At the International Dateline, it has been SPUD day for several hours now. While in many parts of the World it is about to start and in others there is still a full day to go before December 1st. The Steem Blockchain interlinks a worldwide community of crypto-mavericks through events and initiatives like SPUD8.


As predicted by the STEEM Magic 8-Ball, there will be suds for this SPUD-8. @beerlover will be sponsoring some BEER tokens as prizes for the winners. Hopefully this will help some quench that thirst for everything crypto. Head on over to @beerlover 's channel to see how else you can acquire more BEER!

Remember to follow and support our very important prize sponsors, as well as supporting those young STEEM accounts that are looking to become stronger links to the STEEM Blockchain.

Listed below, SPUD7 Winners - Please help recognize and support these young striving Steemians.

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 of 42 & ABOVE (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,


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!!


Cheers & Good Luck!

Hello guys, I just powered up 32 steems.

Hello @muhammad007 I want to thank you for supporting and participating in this #spud event. I also just wanted to let you know that per the #spud8 rules, you need a minimum of 150 Steem Power in your account prior to the SPUD event. This is to make it more fair for everyone. Again, I thank you for supporting and joying us, I will put you on our list of those who power up for SPUD but don't qualify for the prizes as an honorable mention. Hopefully, by next month you will have enough Steem Power that you will qualify as an entrant for #spud9 Take care my friend and have a wonderful day!

I really like this initiative, as I have said before @streetstyle. I have started work on my post. Have done things a little differently this time round.

I hope to have it out by pumpkin time in South Africa, if not before...

Thank you @fionasfavourites #spud is growing and getting stronger!

It is done! 😉
I love the Pumped Spud gif!! 💖

Thanks for doing your part for #spud and helping to make #spud8 the best one yet. As for the gif, yes it is pretty cool. @eddiespino and @grisvisa put it together for the SPUD movement. Thanks and take care.

You're very welcome! :)


Thank you so much for the contest each month, @streetstyle and all sponsors. I am so happy for this event each month and I will be back in January :)

Gotta say I loved the 3 weeks of sp and tried to spread the votes around...

forgot to say thanks! @bippe

Glad to hear @darrenfj Good luck for #spud8 and thanks for supporting and participating. Take care.

Power up people!

I love seeing how much #SPUD has grown over the past 8 months! Still the 30th in my corner of the world, but I have a bit of Steem put aside to power up after the clock strikes 12, and I'm looking forward to doing my drawing in a few days when the participation list is finalized! Happy #SPUD8 everyone!

Thanks for all your #spud support and participation @traciyork Also, please let me know who the winner is of your prize, since it will now include 20 BEER tokens as well. Take care my friend and have a great weekend!

ps, cool power up numbers..... in China that would be considered super lucky numbers!!

Oweee…. just love #spud8, we are roiling along .
Supporting each other, sharing ideas, pushing forward on #steemit. We are very strong, competent people, let's go folks, we have the power, be a happy family.
Love is all around us. 😊

@farm-mom I actually heard someone say that we, meaning all those currently involved in anything crypto, are MAVERICKS. I kinda like that because it is true.... we are forging new uncharted paths, making it easier for those that join the crypto-revolution later to go down this same path. Glad to see someone other than myself use the #spud and #spud8 hashtag We need more that too! Take care and have a great weekend.

Hello @streetstyle, "Mavericks"? oh yes, I hope it sticks. We are all traveling down a new path, learning more everyday on how to keep this #crypto revolution going.
I am going to stay in this game until we are all winners!
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Dec 1st 2019 #spud8

Thanks @farm-mom nice to know there are other diehards for Steem and crypto out there. #spud #spud8

Oh I have no doubt, #steem and #crypto are here to stay. Grateful to our son @ryan313 who turned us onto #bitcoin 4 or 5 years ago, when we could afford to invest in this crazy crypto currency, called bitcoin.
Good to know we can learn from his hard work with research, knowledge and investing tools.
As far as the #steemit platform, I enjoy all my new friends and peeking into the lives of others from all around the world.
Steem will survive and thrive, too many great authors and creators on the blockchain for it not to.😉
Thanks again @streetstyle love my #spuds😘

It's a done deal !! Powered up all I had in my wallet. It's not enough to qualify for the contest, but that's OK, I just want this to continue, I know it's bringing our community together. GO #spud8

I must say that it is wonderful initiative. Steem on.

Just waiting for an SBD Conversion to go through and then I'll be in on the SPUD.

Nice! @buggedout

SPUD7 was great and SPUD8 will be even better!

Thanks for doing your part @ph1102 #spud and #spud8 will be awesome!

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

NerdBoy notes that this should read

MUST have a reputation score ABOVE 42 (so rank of 42.00 will Not Win)

hehehehe, how about

MUST have a reputation of 42 and Above (so rank of 41.99 will not qualify or Win) ?

Yup, that works.

I’ve more than once had ties for contests I’ve run; explicit rules come in handy. 😏

Believe it or not, but I do appreciate the fact that you took the time to not only read it but understand it and find the flaws. Thanks and would appreciate it again in the future. Take care and have a great one!
