= When is PowerUp? =
NOW, it was activated on EOS Feb-23-2021 (https://bloks.io/transaction/44457a41361bb7ceb5dbbada41884a719da41e24d5021fe79164ffd245de74e8).
= Who is PowerUp for? =
Anyone can use PowerUp to rent resources for 24 hour periods at a time, BUT average users (most of us) will more ideally use Wallets (https://t.me/EOSproject/1643467) and Resource Providers that simplify and package resources for their users. PowerUp's target audience is developers and power users first.
How do I earn from PowerUp? Hold REX tokens. REX tokens are an accounting artifact that keep track of how many EOS tokens you own in the resource pool.
If you already have REX tokens, you will automatically be earning from network activity (PowerUp fees, REX fees, Name bid fees, RAM fees).
If you don't have REX tokens, you can deposit your EOS into a REX portal and start earning.
= Where do I PowerUp? =
If you're sure you want to pay to rent resources, more and more PowerUp portals will come about. Here's one from Bloks (https://bloks.io/wallet/powerup).
