The Steem News @ 19 August 2021 - Steem is Powering Up...

in #steem5 months ago

Steem is still powering up. The Minnows, Dolphins, Orcas and Whales are all growing.

The deadline for applications for Steemit's Community of the Month program is only two away. Make sure you get your application in.

Today's Steem News also includes news and updates about WOX-HelpFund, AVLE, Steemalive Community Impact Network, SteemKids, some guides and tips, and many more contests...

1. Power Ups are Still Working !

It is still looking good on the Power Up front. And SPUD4STEEM is still doing a great job.

This is all working well as the latest stats from @steemchiller show. Minnows, Dolphins and Orcas are all increasing at a useful rate. And we even have a new whale...

Please also note that in the table above the Steem Power values for each 'sea creature category' are only approximate, as the 'raw data' supplied by @steemchiller is based on Vests not SP.

For example 'Minnows' refer to those people with 1,000,000 - 9,999,999 Vests, and 'Dolphins' refers to those with 10,000,000 - 99,999,999 Vests.

2. Communities of the Month - September

@steemitblog announced last week that applications are now open for communities who would like to be considered for the Communities of the Month Support Program for September.

There are six Communities of the Month support packages to be had, and another 30 communities will get regular @booming votes. That is 36 communities in total to be supported.

Only 13 communities have put in applications so far, so if your community applies you have a good chance of being selected !

There is just over two days left to apply - so make sure your community leaders are on the case.

Applications must be submitted by 11.59pm UTC on Saturday, August 21st...

Hola amigo, gracias por esa tabla ahora se que estoy en pececillo, hoy yo hice un encendido de 150 Steem, voy hacer ahora mi publicación, porque quiero llegar rápido a ser un delfín, y sobre el programa de curación me parece muy bien ya que así muchas comunidades tendrán la oportunidad de ser recompesados.
