Steem Basic Income
Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content.
Sustainability Coverage and VP Management
Sustainability Coverage is currently at 68.39% and rshares reward rate is 547,104,910 per SBI unit per day.
The rshares reward rate for bonus units (delegation reward) is not decreased, and you can help increase the sustainability coverage (and thus the rshares reward rate on regular units) by delegating to @steembasicincome.
For more information, please read Into the Heart of Sustainability.
Upvoting Reward multipliers are currently at 1.25x on regular updates and 1.10x on secondary accounts and comments, until our voting power (VP) recovers to 80%.

From the creator:
What is Punday?
Punday is the best day. It's the day we post a topic upon which you are invited to pun in the comments for a chance at SBI shares. You get to read all the incredible puns, and you can try your hand at puns, and you can just bask in the warmth and love that punsters offer. I am your Puntender, and I serve hot puncakes with Mapun Syrpun.
Love free stuff + crypto + science? This contest is for you! Simply resteem this post, upvote, comment and follow me to enroll. And get a chance to win 1 SBI unit and 50 GRC (Gridcoin).

Quite a few industrious Steemians run contests regularly. Here is a list of the ones we know about at the moment. All of these have been running for months so you can count on their posted schedule.
Be sure to check each account and look for the contest name as the links change each week. Also remember to read the full contest description as the rules and prize values sometimes change.
The folks over at @freewritehouse run three contests each week. All of them are designed to encourage community engagement and highlight other's work. Besides the prizes from the @freewritehouse account, they are always interested in hearing from anyone who will sponsor a contest and so they can offer even bigger prizes.
A Favorite Freewrite You Read contest runs every Tuesday for just 24 hours. You need to read some freewrites written (you can read this post to see what they are), and then comment on the contest posts about which ones you liked best and why. If they choose your comment you win units of SBI.
Recommend your Favorite Freewrite Poem is a poetry version of the Favorite Freewrite contest and it runs every Friday. Make a comment about a freewrite poem you loved and you could win SBI units. But be quick! When Friday is over, so is the contest - until the next week that is.
We-Write is a new challenge where two writers create a single story using the freewrite prompt. It runs every other Wednesday with a prize of 4 SBI divided among winners.
Finish the Story Contest is run by @f3nix via the @bananafish account which now hosts the contest which runs every Wednesday. He posts the beginning of a story, and you finish it. Then you post your complete story for everyone to read. One of the prizes is SBI units. The important thing to know about this contest is that it's an ongoing creativity workshop, so if you miss one deadline you can participate in the next.
Mizu No Oto is founded on the belief that every image has a haiku. It’s an @bananafish contest curated by @marcoriccardi, a real haijin (haiku poet) and it's a great occasion to learn this form of poetry.
Travel the world with your fellow Steemians in the #swmchallenge run by @runicar. You simply need to share a blog about a place you visited and share it on the map (read the post to see how). You’ll need pictures and good descriptions if you want to get noticed and win the SBI units.
In the spirit of helping new Steemians, this contest focuses on curating great content and is run by @pifc. It runs weekly on Mondays and asks that you find two "High Quality Original Content Blog Posts" to recommend for curation. Four judges decide which recommendations were the best and multiple winners get SBI units. Follow @pifc to see the latest contest post and read it for full details.
Like super short stories? Try writing one in 232 characters or fewer for your chance to win SBI in this contest run by @felt.buzz. Every Wednesday he posts a new prompt to use for your very short story. You can post your story wherever you want, just make sure to keep it under 232 characters.
Help celebrate digital art by creating creative captions for the week’s selected picture. Read all the rules carefully to be sure your entry qualifies for the SBI prizes.
Every week you can visit the Thank You Economy contest and tag someone who has helped you. When you do, both of you could win SBI units from the ever growing prize pool!
@steemexplorers is an account aimed at achieving growth through helping others find resources and network with other community members in an effort to improve user experiences and overall knowledge of the Steem platform. The @steemexplorers daily contests as of now require either an upvote on the daily post OR a comment to be submitted in which the applicant provides something that they have learned about the Steem platform or services on the Steem Blockchain that they find useful and can be beneficial to others.
A winner is selected at random from each daily contest and a unit awarded to the respective winner with a results post showing the wallet transaction from @steemexplorers to @steembasicincome sponsoring the winner which can then be verified by anyone who's interested in confirming our giveaways.
The comments that people can leave to gain entry can be anything useful, as little as teaching something helpful with markdown format, their thoughts on certain upvote services or apps like partiko for example, things like @dustsweeper or whatever else they can think of that helps

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of and share a post on a Wednesday with the #wednesdyawalk tag for a chance to receive SBI.
Sponsored by Jimmy's Sauces, @BraaiBoy hosts MeatyMondays and asks you to share a picture of a recent braai (aka BBQ) to win. That's it... No Likes or Resteems etc. required. 7 SBI units (and other prizes - incl a real-world Jimmy's Sauce hamper) are up for grabs. Yum! Mondays just got better.

This Contest listing was prepared for us by @ntowl!
@ntowl is a freelance copywriter who plans on being a best-selling author. Her writing is all over the web, but most of it belongs to other people who paid her to write it. Follow her on Steemit for writing advice and encouragement.
If you want to get involved, or to increase the basic income that you receive, enrollment is pretty straightforward:
Just send 1 STEEM to @steembasicincome. Include the name of a Steemian to sponsor in the transaction memo (preceded by @). You and the person you sponsor will each receive 1 unit in the program. You can sponsor any active Steemian, it does not have to be a current member.
If you're unclear, please check out our full transaction memo guidelines and then let us know if you have any questions.
The official currency for enrollment is STEEM. If we choose to accept SBD without refunding it, you do not receive extra value for it.
Enrollments are processed automatically every 144 minutes. Confirmation transactions are still manual and typically are sent within 2-3 days. Even if you have not received a welcome transaction, you can check your status using
