The Minnow Power-up League - Week #45

Welcome to the Minnow Power Up League.

The Minnow Power-Up League is kindly sponsored by Steem witness @yabapmatt and @steemmonsters! Prizes will be issued in @steemmonsters packs and STEEM -

The Minnow Power-Up League was created to encourage members of the community to invest STEEM and hold Steem Power. Holding Steem Power long-term is an excellent way to grow an individual account, and bring stability and growth to the price of STEEM.

We now have 159 minnows that are growing and tracking their progress on the road to dolphin-hood. We also have 48 graduates. Together, last week the league members have powered up a total of 12,528 Steem Power. All participants since joining have powered up a massive 371,358.778SP. To learn more about this minnow initiative please do have a read of our introductory post:

Do you want to join?

You can join or leave at any stage, all you must do is leave a comment below and let us know that you want in or out.

Let's Grow Together

Don’t forget we are all trying to grow so please do consider supporting the person above you and the person below you in the league by visiting their blog posts or even voting on their comments in this post.

The Minnow Power-up League

Every Thursday we will be using SteemSQL database managed by @arcange to gather details on the Owned SP for each person that has entered the league. The current weekly owned SP will be compared to the SP held last week. The person with the highest SP growth for the current week will be on top of the leader board.

There are 4 levels depending on your SP levels. Once you graduate from one, you will be automatically placed on the next. When you graduate from the 4th you will be placed on the Minnow Wall of Fame. As this post could get rather long with the 4 levels, as we grow, we may consider splitting this into different posts on different days.

Hmmm. Thanks for the congrats on dolphinhood but how much did I power up? Doesn't it count? Seems like I should have done less and stayed in League 4 and then crossed the threshold next week. 😢 😢 😢

Hey, so last week I said:

So I went ahead and sent an SBI share to @chekohler:

Congrats on your achievement! :)

And good work, everyone!

08.08.2019 21:11

Thank you so much for my SBI share, lol I guess it really does pay to power up! Now next step dolphin hood, I don't plan on sitting in league 4 for very long

09.08.2019 06:46

You're welcome! And go, you! Dolphinhood is so close!

09.08.2019 13:37

Glad to see the league still going strong! Maybe I should remove my name from the list? I keep saying I will power up, but I don't post anymore, and end up spending all my steem earnings from SM on card purchases. 😥

08.08.2019 21:19

Congrats everyone!
Good to be on top ten of lvl 1 again ;)

Ah feels good to be topping the pack and keeping pace with @brittandjosie. I don't plan on being in league 4 for long I see we already have 5 new dolphins in waiting. At below $0.20 I feel like we're going to see quite a few big powerups from peeps in this league soon :P

Also, Thanks for the pack! :) bagged a rare at least :P

Thank you so much

And congratulations to all the winners!!

Hey, @steemitcommunity.

Some movement again, it appears, and all the while STEEM continues to head to lows I've not seen since being here (below $0.20).

Congratulations to those who can and did take advantage of some of the cheapest STEEM prices ever to grow their account along with their hard work here.

And welcome, welcome, welcome to @gillianpearce for reaching dolphin status! Woohoo! Very happy to see your name up on the Wall of Fame. :)

09.08.2019 14:51

Thanks @glenalbrethesen. I'm wishing I'd stayed clear of the wall of fame this week and waited until next week to tip it over. That way I would have won a prize.

I shoudl be grateful for reaching dolpin of course, and no doubt I will be soon, but I'm having one of those weeks where everything just seems to go slightly wrong. And I'm feeling a bit crotchety as a result.

this too shall pass and all that!

With prices at these historically low levels, great time to power up for those so inclined - + 12K SP this week. Great! Now, with STEEM dropping below $0.20 … 😧 … how low will it go? 🤔

1 SBI share registered for this week’s overall power-up winner @evanstinger. Another investment like that and you’ll quickly be at Level 2! Congratulations to @gillianpearce for getting over the line and onto the Wall of Fame! 👍

“Onward and upward” into a new week!

09.08.2019 17:43

Once again, Thank you!
This community is great 👍
and I grow on Steem because this community really helpful.

09.08.2019 18:30

Certainly @evanstinger happy to do my small part to provide a little encouragement. 🙂

09.08.2019 18:36

Thanks roleerob! 😁

09.08.2019 20:18

I'm happy to be in the 2000SP club now! Not bad increase in the first month in the league, happy with that 🙂
