Yes, late again, about five months late this time, as I see my last power-up post was at the beginning of the year. I was travelling yesterday and now I'm working with less than optimal hotel wi-fi: saints preserve anyone that might want to watch a video.

But I wanted to take part because (apart from the general goodness), I'm rapidly approaching one of my milestones and on the way to another. I have powered up a very small amount of HP, just to top up my account, which I grow anyway through rewards. I reached my Orca milestone about this time last year and I am content with that.

Earlier in the year, I powered down some HP and moved it over into Hive-Engine where I have a nice little portfolio of developing income streams. I read somewhere that millionaires have, on average, seven passive income streams.

I have four streams and one in the offing, so that just leaves Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday waiting to become a payday (I get two payouts on Sundays). Although, of course, Hive pays out everyday!

Anyway the big news is I am approaching my 10,000 SPI milestone. When SPI started, I had a romantic ambition to own 10% of the fund. It was a crazy idea, based on nothing except that I wanted to. I was disappointed when the hard cap arrived as I had only reached about 8,500 SPI. I would have to make do with 8.5%, I thought (the hard cap probably saved me from myself, the original plan was to issue one million SPI)!

However, thanks to a big investor that cashed in and took profits, SPI has been paying weekly dividends in SPI. At first, it seemed a bit like Zeno's paradox, especially with the escalation in prices (higher prices = less SPI distributed), and I wondered if I would ever get to 10,000 SPI. Or five years from now, would I still be writing "just another few pay outs"?

Things seem to have changed over the past few weeks, though, with much bigger payouts and, all things being equal, I should reach 10,000 SPI in about eight weeks. Yay!

I really love to see all these different options opening up on Hive - saving, investing, supporting new initiatives (SPI has ventured into providing the capital to start up good ideas).

I'm also really pleased with the Saturday Savers Club which I host with my alter ego @susie-saver over on the @eddie-earner account. The Club has been running for 22 weeks now using the 365 (compound) a penny a day challenge as a framework. It's a great way into saving and we have a small band of participants with their own savings and growth goals, some following the challenge and some with their own plans.

It's very gratifying seeing people reach their goals, and it's nice to be able to contribute a little to the Hive ecosystem with a low-key weekly post which gets good engagement and provides some fun. On a good week, it takes about an hour - half and hour for the post and a few minutes each day to respond to comments. We have a little giveaway for comments each week that helps to share out the wealth, and every so often a side challenge with some extra prizes.

I'm growing @susie-saver as a template using the 365 challenge, to show how it could work. Just saving and curating each week, it is up to nearly 200 HP, plus some EDS and EDSM which bring a regular modest income. We're aiming for Minnow by the end of the year. I have tried posting to earn more rewards, using @actifit, but the dedicated phone with the step-counting @actifit app fell in the mop bucket and couldn't be revived. I'll sort that out soon.

Well done everyone that powered up and contributes to Hive, another step on the way!

That's great to participate in such initiative and support it. I did my best to curate #hiveup , I think #hpud is only for Spanish community. That's at least what I found in the post of @traciyork. I also don't understand anything about SPI , could that be related to hive power as well ?

Anyway, it's great to have so many people participating in this. I'm even a bit sad about @streetstyle because he's not active and who created all this. I hope he's doing well and I wish him all the best.

Hello @clixmoney, good to see you.
SPI is a second layer Hive-Engine token. The hive from selling tokens is powered up and leased out and then the proceeeds used to buy off-platform investments. You can find out more about it by following @spinvest.

So, that's for sure is related to powering up hive. I will check that account. Thanks !

Damn, 8.5% still seems on fire to me. Congrats @shanibeer. And all these moves you're making here are the boss moves for real.

hey @shanibeer, it's been a while!

👍

Thank you @jersteemit, good to see you 🙂.
You're not doing too badly yourself!
Great idea to do ten comments a day.

Lots of fun stuff going on. I'm earning a fair bit of POB and VIBES on posts, but not got enough to make much from curation yet.

I'll do another Brits list post at the weekend. A few more new people that I've found, but I think I must have most of the established accounts already. Just have to encourage people to stay active.

Yes, there is so much to become involved in and enjoy! There's lots I haven't checked out yet. Good to see more activity in the UK, too!

That's hilarious!

I've told you before that exercise is bad for you but I obviously forgot to mention that cleaning is too! 😂

Sorry, I should be commenting on more of your serious achievements but I couldn't resist. 😍

This is exactly what I say to Mr P!

The serious achievements are always there, being serious 😂.

Did you see @adetorrent's video about mortgaging Bitcoin? Tax avoiding, too 😍. (It's a long way in, sorry, but an enjoyable video, all the same).

This is exactly what I say to Mr P!

Aw. You have a Mr P too. That's what we call our son. 😍

Didn't see the video but I suspect it's similar to the stuff I've been watching about loaning against Bitcoin an avoiding CGT.

I'm feeling a bit burnt out with it all at the moment to be honest. So many choices. So many decisions.

I could do with a nice holiday in the sun. 😂

So many choices. So many decisions.

The good news is it's not going away any time soon. As time passes, everything will settle down and get easier, let other people dip their toe in the water first.

it has always seemed strange to me that all you can do with Bitcoin is hold it, much better to create ways it is earning its keep.

let other people dip their toe in the water first.

Exactly! 😁

Congratulations! 10,000 SPI milestone is an important one. I missed SPI and I'm not focusing on LBI but both are equally good.

You're doing great!

I hope I get there, sooner or later hehe 😍.
Good to keep stacking, LBI is good, too.

It is wonderful to see how investments can grow over time. There certainly is magic in compounding.

There really is a lot of cool stuff happening here. I keep thinking one day we will hit a critical mass and it will really take off.
