The Hive Power Up Day has truly become an important moment in the life of our community and, once again, this edition did not disappoint us with new records in participation.
January flew by and it seemed like Hive Power Up Day showed up way sooner than it should! I heard/saw so many people saying, "oh wow, is it that time already?" that I braced myself for a quiet day with fewer than usual power-ups.
Then I started hearing the chatter about the HBD price soaring and suddenly there were power-ups as far as my eyes could see!
Seriously, the timing of the bullish HBD price couldn't have been better - I even far exceeded my own goal for powering up and I know I wasn't alone. I can't wait to see the numbers and find out what ATH (all-time highs) we reached, due in large part to the excitement and enthusiasm of our blockchain community, both here and elsewhere on social media (I know there have been lots of HivePUD tweets today!).
Thanks to everyone for making this yet another wicked awesomesauce Power Up Day, with special thanks to the HiveBuzz team for BEEing such an amazing buzz-maker!
As already said, we had several all-time highs during this edition. Unheard of since we have supported the PUD initiative.
But let's start first with those who choose to help others grow, the Power Up Helpers .
We have 15 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 22 people to get their PUD badge.
Special kudos to those who were helping several accounts: @reiseamateur (4), @ahmadmanga (2), @gr33nm4ster (2), @oliverschmid (2) and @saleg25 (2).
Together, the helpers gifted 493.662 HIVE s!
Here is the complete list of helpers and their donation: @oliverschmid (200), @blocktrades (63.60), @reiseamateur (44), @saleg25 (32), @ahmadmanga (20.25), @gr33nm4ster (20), @pardinus (20), @shmoogleosukami (20), @traciyork (11.11), @happyfrog420 (11), @littlenewthings (11), @madefrance (10.70), @dawnoner (10), @melinda010100 (10) and @victoriabsb (10).
A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.
We now have 80 users who helped at least one less powerful user who never got any power-up from anyone. These benefactors got the so coveted Power Up Helper badge:

Remember that the number of people you are helping will have a significant influence on the delegations we will do.
But before writing about that, take a look at how you did against the previous editions:
New record for the number of participants with 406 users who powered-up their HIVE. It's an 11.23% increase from the previous month!
New record for the volume of HIVE which was powered-up too. No less than 226564 HIVEs have been staked. It's an amazing 8.38% increase from the previous month's record!
Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:
In nearly all levels, you did better than the previous month, with new records for level 2, 4 and 5 and 44 big stakers who got the Jumbo-Bee thanks to a power-up of at least 1000 HIVE!
Among them: @hivelot (45024,854), @therealyme (23761,194), @penguinpablo (9000), @koychev22 (8685,27), @niallon11 (6000), @d-pend (5558,917), @wehmoen (5050,001), @gleam-of-light (4940,683), @preparedwombat (4242), @beeliquid (4000), @wiseagent (3500), @r00sj3 (3000), @deepresearch (2961,31), @iliyan90 (2836,431), @jongolson (2500), @thales7 (2342,207), @thehockeyfan-at (2214), @howweroll (2042,99), @dalz (2000), @slobberchops (2000), @pouchon (1925,14), @walterjay (1800), @chops316 (1600), @galenkp (1500), @oliverschmid (1500), @neuerko (1433,384), @thelogicaldude (1363), @forykw (1215,504), @ewkaw (1200), @alphaccino.art (1197,812), @diabonua (1111), @fem-of-war (1100,546), @goldkey (1065,905), @silversaver888 (1015), @louis88 (1010), @bradleyarrow (1002,812), @flauwy (1001), @tarazkp (1001), @jeffjagoe (1000,841), @glennolua (1000) and @jacuzzi (1000).
Since the beginning of the year, we are rewarding regular participants and those who have also been generous in helping others by offering a 3 weeks Hive Power delegations . To be eligible for a delegation: - you must have participated in this Power Up Day. - You must have performed at least 5 power-ups on Power Up Day. Power-up received from another user is not taken into account. - 4 of these 5 power-ups must have been done on the last 5 Power Up Days (including this one).
The last rule has been slightly modified from what we announced in order not to penalize those who unfortunately missed a PUD (shit happens). This allows us to support a bit more participants and reward your commitment and consistency.
To compute the amount of HP delegated to each user, we use the following criteria:
This month we will delegate no less than 3244 HP to 92 users . That's a 51% increase in the amount of HP delegated compared to the previous month.
Congratulations to all of you!
