SPUD4 is Incoming, To Your Battle Stations! - Prizes Update, Now a Third Prize added - [steempower] [community]



Lately, the Steem ecosystems has been extremely busy. There are now so many projects and events happening on the Steem blockchain that it is very difficult to keep up with it all, and Steem Power Up Day (SPUD) is just one more. Although of course I personally feel it is a worthy cause and all Steemians should participate on August 1, 2019 to make it a Super SPUD day!

In my last post I included the prizes for the winners of SPUD4 and now I will have to update the prize list since we now have a third place prize. This prize for third place though was something new for me, and made it so I had to go and find out about one of these projects happening on the Steem blockchain that I had heard about but knew very little about.

"Stop, It's the S.B.I. !"

It all started when @jlsplatts sponsored a prize for one of the winners of SPUD4. He mentioned that he wanted to sponsor a SPUD4 prize, and that it would be 20 SBI, "the gift that keeps on giving." Now I had heard of STEEM BASIC INCOME (SBI) before, and knew it was a project to help Steemians earn Steem just based on the name. I knew little else about this initiative, but was grateful to be able to add more to the prize pool. I figured that when the time came to distribute the prizes, each prize sponsor would know how to distribute their sponsored prizes, including the SBI prize.

Then @davedickeyyall threw me a curveball when he tipped me 10 STEEM using the @tipu bot. The curve came when he said he wanted me to use the 10 Steem as SBI shares for a SPUD4 prize, now making him a SPUD4 prize sponsor. At that moment I am of course extremely happy to add more to the prize pool, but now I realize I have to dig a little deeper into what and how STEEM BASIC INCOME (SBI) actually works in order for it to be the "gift that keeps on giving" as @jlsplatts had said to me earlier as well as to be able to delegate it to the appropriate winner.

I still don't fully understand everything that is "under the hood" of how STEEM BASIC INCOME works. I do know that in order to start receiving SBI, you either sponsor another Steemian or a Steemian sponsors you by simply sending Steem (minimum 1) to the @steembasicincome account and in the memo section putting the name of the Steemian that is to receive the SBI. I believe the team over at SBI then manually add that user in the memo to the SBI list in order for the program to then start up voting on the sponsored Steemian's posts. The payout from those automatic upvotes from SBI's various voting accounts, I believe, is the "STEEM BASIC INCOME."

"Don't Shoot! It's Me, SPUD4 with Prize UPDATES!"

How to SPUD4 on August 1, 2019

We ask that Steemians that are able, to POWER UP any amount of STEEM they have on SPUD day.
We ask Steemians that are currently Powering Down, to put a Stop on Powering Down for that Day, and if desired to commence the Power Down the following day.
We ask that those that trade or sell Steem to Not Sell or Trade Steem on August 1, 2019, but to do it the day before or after if possible. Also, to cancel any type of Sell Order on the Exchanges.


1st Place

  • 2500 Steem Power Delegation for 4 Weeks - sponsored by @xpilar
  • 20 SBI shares, "The Gift that keeps on Giving" - sponsored by @jlsplatts

2nd Place - 1000 Steem Power Delegation for 4 Weeks - sponsored by me, @streetstyle

3rd Place

Rules to Win Prizes for SPUD4 :

  • MUST have a reputation score BELOW 69.00 ( so 68.99 is good & Can participate.) AND more than 75 STEEM POWER (prior to SPUD4) BUT LESS than 7501 Steem Power.
  • MUST have a reputation score ABOVE 42 (so rank of 41.99 will Not Win)
  • MUST have at least 1 Steem Post in their blog about SPUD4
  • MUST Power Up Steem on August 1st, 2019
  • On August 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 SPUD4 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 August 1st.

For Example:

If you have 1000 Steem Power already powered up prior to August 1, and on August 1 you complete steps 1-5 with a 100 Steem Power Up,


another Steemian has 100 Steem Powered up prior to August 1, and on August 1st Powers Up 20 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.

This prize is meant to incentivize the smaller Steemians, the planktons, minnows and barracudas out in the Steem Ocean to participate in powering up on SPUD, and hopefully create more understanding as to why Steem Power is what backs the Steem Economy. 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.

Cheers Everyone, and Happy SPUDDING!

This is all automatic now, but you have the right idea. Our helpful resources post is a good place to get started if you want to deepen your understanding.

You only got 12 sbi shares... well let’s make that an even 20 shall we???

25.07.2019 01:20

Thank you much!! @jlsplatts I am only now realizing how great of a program SBI truly is for helping others.

New tool to help make the world better, check.

25.07.2019 01:45

@foodfightfriday gives away 3 shares of Sbi each week. It’s a friendly food sharing... I guess you could call it contest??... that happens every Friday. No need to be a special order chef or some fancy pants cook. Just post up anything food related on Friday and tag #fff and your entered into the weekly contest. Where anyone is able to vote. Your post could be a restaurant you visited, some nasty food you made or something nasty in your food. It doesn’t matter asl long as it is original and involves FOOD.. .. sorry I felt like that was an opportune time to give a pitch. Lol. Me along with the help of 2 other people run Food Fight Friday (@weirdheadaches and @dandays) we just hit our 1 year mark. Yahoo!!

Ok now SBI is awesome and I don’t know why I don’t use it more frequently. I just seem to forget about it. I feel it is a great way to make a big change.
🍻. And I hope to see you this Friday... 😉😉

25.07.2019 02:20

I agree that SBI is a great tool for helping out minnows...

I looked at the google file but don't see the new SBI you sent... will check this way... I am learning!

Thank you for supporting the #spud4 initiative!!

26.07.2019 14:03

Hi @streetstyle

contact @sultan-aceh on his blog and see what he writes about SPUD, He joins as sponsor of SPUD4 with delegate SP


25.07.2019 21:14

Thanks for this info. @xpilar

Maybe you can help, I am not sure exactly what is the prize for #spud4 that he is offering.

I believe 1k Steem Power delegation for 4 weeks


the other 1000 he mentions is for a different contest, correct?

Not sure, awaiting to hear back from either you or Sultan-aceh,

thank you.

25.07.2019 21:59

Hi @streetstyle

Both awards with delegate SP from @sultan-aceh are for SPUD4

The winner of the competition receives 1000 SP delegated

If the 1st place winner is from Aceh, Indonesia there will be 1000 SP extra delegated from @ sultan-aceh a total of 2000 SP

If there is no winner from Aceh in 1st place, these 1000 SP extra will be delegated to another winner on the prize list of SPUD4 where you think it fits

26.07.2019 00:37

Thanks @xpilar I will update the prize list later today. Thank again for all your support making this #spud event event greater!!


26.07.2019 14:16

I still can not be considered for the award but I like to support these projects that help the platform. successful friend @streetStyle


26.07.2019 14:42

Your numbers are very close though @adeljose If not this time then most likely the next one will be where you can qualify for a prize should you power up enough Steem Power. In the mean time you can help support the #spud initiative by voting, resteeming and letting others know that there is a #SPUD4 event with prizes.
Thanks again for supporting.

27.07.2019 06:02
