Finally SUCCESS! Hive PUM&PUD badges and SPK update!

avatar

I delayed posting this because usually on the 1st day of the month too many posts like this one keep popping up, but simply I cannot pass the opportunity to brag a bit about my achievements:




Last month, it was my first month trying to do a power-up every day, and I failed miserably on the 27th day, not because I forgot but because I woke up too early that day and did the powering up without checking the UTC time.



Now, there was more incentive to try it again, and I continued to do a $5 power-up every day. Nearly at the end of the month, it almost happened again, I woke up and did the powering up without checking the UTC time, lucky me that I did a recheck a bit later and fixed it.



@hivebuzz is always nice reminding you of what you did good every step of the way.




It looks like 29 other users did it for the month of August and it's always nice to see some friendly faces in there:

WELL DONE EVERYBODY!!!


Since the 1st of September came, I went for a PUD as well, this was also my first one done on purpose even though I have done it before just by coincidence.


So if I add July+August everyday $5*60days plus the PUD of $100 that gives me a nice number of 400 powered-up Hive. But this is only half of what I have done, I bought the equivalent in hive-engine tokens that matter to me most and this is what my top 10 HE holdings look like.



Another nice reply I got from @hivebuzz is this one:


50000 here I come! 😎


And now just a little update on my SPK node that's running on the @carloaxie account, in my last post about it, there were 23 people who delegated Larynx to my node for a total amount of around 137K. Since then, the number 23 changed to 29 with a total amount of almost 200K delegated. THANK YOU, but I have to tag you all, in case you didn't claim your tokens for this month, why not go for it: @abbak7, @alinalazareva, @beststart, @bradleyarrow, @carloaxie, @chaosmagic23, @clicktrackprofit, @deepresearch, @devect, @elizabethbit, @fiberfrau, @gadrian, @horstman5, @ifarmgirl, @jimmy.adames, @jongolson, @kiel91, @matrixspinor, @meerliebe, @michelmake, @riccc96, @sandymeyer, @silvertop, @sorin.cristescu, @speak-scc, @syctyr, @tengolotodo, @tomsmaid, @tonyz!


I just realized that the total delegated amount should have been higher and I think it's lower now because, at the beginning of the a month, you can again claim the Larynx airdrop, and if you want to delegate that amount too, you can get confused and even lower your delegation. Take this example: If you delegated to me 1000 larynx, and this month you claimed another 200larynx and wand to add it to your delegation, first power them up, BUT this part is IMPORTANT, when you go to delegation again, if you type just 200 in your delegation field, your entire delegation will drop to 200. If you want to delegate the entire amount then you have to sum it up, 1000 from before plus the claimed 200, so you need to delegate 1200 in total. I think @tonyz did this by mistake, can you check your wallet and see if I'm right?

If anyone has difficulties with this, please drop a comment or send me a message on Discord drLobes#6382 and I'll help!


ALSO, if you are active on Hive and you're writing and posting constantly, you should try LISTNERDS, a wonderful platform to help get your content visible to more users than your usual followers.

Haha...yes! I've been posting every day since February 1st, but there is (or was) a bug in PeakD where even if you set it to 100% power up as your default, it would switch back to 50/50 HBD. Then there were the times I used the DBuzz interface, which doesn't give an option to choose 100% power up, which I didn't realize until later. Oh well, I learned! 🙏 💚

Ah, are you saying post rewards count towards the PUM power-up?

They count only in that to be able to receive the PUM badge, and delegation, one needs to either go 100% power up on all posts, or power up at least one HIVE every day. 🙏 💚

If you want to delegate the entire amount then you have to sum it up, 1000 from before plus the claimed 200, so you need to delegate 1200 in total.

I will try it next time. I think this is the explanation for why I thought that there was a bug that needs to be fixed. I tried several times to add my delegation to the same node, but it didn't work because I failed to sum them up.

Thanks and congratulations on your PUM and PUD badges!

The mistake of delegating only the amount of Hive Power that you want to add to an existing delegation instead of adding the original amount with it also locks some of the Hive Power you delegated for 5 days, so if you don't have extra HP, you have to wait 5 days to delegate the higher HP amount. 😅 !PIZZA !CTP

In this case, it's delegating LARYNX tokens.

Delegating your staked LARYNX tokens to a SPK node operator that you like is still better than just letting it sit on your Hive account. 😏 !CTP

LARYNX POWER (LP) earns SPK tokens at 0.010%. Delegated LP (DLP) earns SPK tokens for both delegator and delegatee at 0.015%.

It is bit of a crappy and slow site, I did sum it up at first but it didn't came through.
Then thought maybe it adds automatically.
Is there a waiting period or can I try it again now?

Yup the site is not as it should be, but work is being done without enough people working :)) Normally if I do a claim or power up or any kind of transaction, I let a few minutes pass and do a hard refresh to see the real numbers. You can try again anytime. If it still doesn't work for you, please show me the exact links you are using when doing this.

Damn, it's not easy, that's why when I woke up, first thing to do was do the power up and I did it every day. But, one day I woke up too early, so I did the power-up twice on the same day missing the next day entirely! :)

It didn't work for me at the time adding the two amounts. Maybe I miscalculated. Anyway, I was pressed by time and I delegated that tranche to a different node validator, but I'll try again next month, with the new claim.

I see this problem with a few other people as well and it's a general one, either the amount set was a bit too high, OR what I'm thinking more right now, it also depends on which node is processing your transaction, some of them are or can be a bit behind. No biggie, it will all get sorted at some point...

Congratulations!
My thoughts:

  • the "daily power up" as well as "recurrent buys" should be a functionality offered (somehow, to be discussed) by one or all the dapps - this could be something as simple as "give us your e-mail address and / or your phone number if you will and in exchange for them we'll award you 10 / 20 ecency points (or another HE token) AND we'll send you 1 e-mail / 1 discord/whatsapp/etc. per day IN THE MORNING to remind you to do your power up or your recurrent buy AND in case you didn't get around to do it, we'll send another one IN THE EVENING so you don't forget and miss the day"
  • claiming larynx tokens - could you perhaps add a link, I forgot where that was happening
  • ListNerds - I think the main issue I have with this is that I still haven't wrapped my head around how it works ... there's MAIL tokens, CTP tokens, ListNerds tokens and it's all so confusing ... what is the basic value proposition? you buy MAIL tokens and in exchange the ListNerds engine sends e-mails with links to your post to ... whom? when? how? etc. I can't answer the basic question: "Is this a good value proposition? What kind of "bang" am I getting for the buck?" I know there are video tutorials but the elements needed to answer that fundamental "bang for the buck" question elude me

A much more simple solution to the daily power-up conundrum would be a version of the recurrent payments function - only for power-ups. This would prevent a million emails in everyone's inbox and avoid KYC issues that many people have.

ListNerds is in a development phase. It has tremendous potential currently for new and smaller Hive accounts (anyone on the way to Dolphin) to grow their accounts:

The proposition is that people who are interested in reading emails from content creators sign up to do that. The emails are contained within the ListNerds platform and not anyone's inbox, which is a blessing and a huge advantage. In return for reading, say, 10 emails a day, readers (or receivers as they are termed in the white paper) receive MAILS and, if enough receivers read and vote on the same emails that you have, you will receive CTP rewards.

The CTP can be staked, for which you will receive staking rewards, or it can withdrawn to Hive Engine, where you can do what you will with it. The benefit of staking within ListNerds is that receivers have more voting mana, can vote on a wider range of emails (if they wish) and thus have a better opportunity of earning more CTP.

The accumulation of MAILS through reading emails enables a receiver to send an email of their own, promoting anything with a URL that they like. This might be their own blog or post (makes sense) or a (Hive) community or project that they are involved in, or anything else that they may want to build an audience for (could be a referral link or it could be something like the online shop for Oxfam, where purchasers are both helping address poverty and environmental concerns through buying pre-loved items). If their email is verified (ie meets the required threshold of votes from other receivers), the sender is rewarded with LISTNERDS. These are automatically staked and earning staking rewards or can be unstaked and withdrawn to Hive-Enfine, again, to do with what you will.

The basic free subscription provides smaller accounts with a structured focus for content discovery - finding other accounts with whom they may share an interest (Splinterlands, sports, investing), visiting those accounts and engaging on posts, and through that, building their network and the audience for their blog. ListNerds helps to address the challenge for new accounts about how to find and engage with other accounts and I can see it working in tandem with, for example, @ocd's onboarding intuitive. I have plans for April when I will using both programmes as part of a business start-up course run in local community centres to bring more people to Hive.

Long-term, ListNerds has huge potential for content discovery for all types of accounts, projects, communities and enterprises. There is also the opportunity for people to create their own permissionless jobs providing a PR function and promoting all the above on behalf of other projects etc.

At present, my best guess is that about 200 subscribers at most are active on ListNerds. I'm a subscriber for intellectual reasons - as a small business and social enterprise support practitioner, I'm interested in how second-layer enterprises develop on Hive, the challenges they face and how they address them.

I don't wish to link my posts on @drlobes account, that seems a little rude, but I have written about this in more detail on my blog.

Thanks for this very clear and detailed explanation Shanibeer!
It was so clear even I understood! Went and read some mails and upvoted and earned some MAIL tokens ! Ok, I think I began to make sense of it and it's kinda fun indeed :)

I can't understand how come I wasn't following you already, I remember having breakfast together in the Krakow hotel in 2018, during Steemfest 3

Another benefit of staked CTP is being able to tip several times each day, and without spamming everyone's account with tipping comments.

For Larynx tokens you can do it all from your wallet claim/powerup/delegate at this address:
https://vue.dlux.io/me?#/
At that address, go to the wallet tab and then the SPK tab.

For your first idea, that could be done easy enough especially on discord using a bot like Gine bot that's already been running on Hive, or the FRIDAY BOT which has so many options, I'm sure adding a few more is not that difficult but someone needs to take it up with the devs...

Look how many options they have already:

Great to see @drlobes, congratulations on both Hive and Hive-Engine ventures.

I'm glad you explained about the LARYNX delegations - I was wondering about that, especially as we are making new claims each month and may want to increase delegations to nodes.

I did have a look at the chart with all the nodes and was confused :) I'm hoping to see some posts over the coming weeks explaining what it all means and how it works so I can make informed decisions about delegations.

Forgive me, I've written a long response to another comment; thank you for creating the opportunity to do so - I've left a small tip in appreciation.

Good luck with your continuing power-ups!

Hey, congrats on completing PUM and PUD! I'm a fan of PUM, I only missed a couple I think since it exists. It gets kind of addictive!
I did claim all my Larynx since the start, I will look into delegating them to your node.
Have a great week, !ALIVE
