Hello @pennsif,

@ftz led me to you via this post.

His post is an example of a pilot project to provide a Basic Income for members of the Steem environment. We are on the first day of the project, so I am refining the methodology. You are precisely doing what I want to do. I gave an upvote to @el-nailul because you mentioned him.

I hope that my project participants will be reminded daily to mutually upvote a set of friends, creating a consistent level of earnings on a single post.

There is a second benefit of the process. The participants would be like nodes on a network. If there is an important message, a person posting will notify six people, who each, in turn, might relay the message to six people each and so on. If the Steem SEA Community Charity @steem.amal created a post talking about the fire, it could propagate quickly through the system.

With that in mind, I would like to include a link to your daily posts as part of my message to drive people to your "message board." I will add it to my post today and in future posts. If this creates a problem, give me a reply, and I will discontinue it.

One of the reasons why I mentioned @pennsif in this project as I believe he is doing a great job by creating steem news which is really beneficial to let people know some interesting news on Steemit.

When I joined to the platform 3-4 months back, after a while I discovered pennsif's post that I really liked. Since then I am following this steem news, especially post regarding"win with steem" was my favourite.

Later I guess @disconnect started doing contest alert and pennsif continued with steem news.

Thanks for the daily update. It has been so helpful for some of us to follow the various news and contest that are ongoing. We are happy for your support sir @pennsif

Thank you sir @pennsif for featuring us here in your post. This is really amazing, an inspiration to do more in our #steempromotion here in the philippines.
