Steem Basic Income Giveaway #1

One of the first communities that I came in contact with at the beginning of my time at Steemit was @steembasicincome. As a beginning author, Steemit can be a daunting place. It feels like you are posting into an abyss with no ability to grow. Steem Basic Income gives you a guaranteed vote on one post a day, thus giving you a small but cumulative over time support to your account.

With this post, I want to help sponsor people who might not even have the spare 1 STEEM that is required for registration. So, when this post pays out, I will sponsor people depending on the payout of this post. Basically, I will round up the SBD payout from this post and then that will be the number of people I will sponsor. (So, if the payout is 2.3 SBD, I will sponsor 3 people).

So, all you have to do is upvote and comment about what you are planning to write about. At the post payout, I will select the winners based on the size of their account (smaller prefferred), their pitch in the comments and also a little bit of research into their past posts.

Rules

  1. Upvote.
  2. Comment about what you would like to write about on Steemit!
  3. Resteem is NOT neccessary, but the more people see this, the more the people will be likely to be sponsored.
  4. I'll let everyone know at payout!
  5. I will be sponsoring as many people as this post pays out in SBD. Also I will kick in at least the required amount to round up to the full number.

It seems like a reasonable idea, but the problem I find with it though is that it would just level everything off, therefore render everything of even a lesser value. Why not focus more on resolving problems that allow for others to take advantage? The rich getting richer I don't think is the problem...it's crooked games. And if the game is crooked, why would there be any reason to play? A basic income would only be a temporary band aid kind of remedy, void of any kind of long term solution.

·

I assume that you are talking about basic income in general. The idea of universal basic income would be to provide for a minimum living allowance, especially in an era where jobs are increasingly lost to automation. Or in a time when objects can be created on demand, rather than needing to be produced en masse and inefficiently.

However, this contest is not really about that!

Thank you so much for this! :)

Hi @bengy! Thanks for the post. You're right it does feel like an abyss when you start on Steem.it. I like to write about books I'm currently reading. I love to share insights on how the information of certain books apply to life.

I think basic income of Steem is great. I also came across Mannabase. The coin is given out daily, and it doesn't cost 1 Steem to get started. It's completely free.

·

Books are a great thing to write about! I used to read much much more...

This is an interesting initiative... I'm planning on posting photos of my travels, artistic works that I like or find out, and a bit about music, too.

I don't really need the Steem giveaway... but what I really need is a few votes to help me recover my reputation. I'm very limited until then, I can't even post new photos on SteemIt. I have to use ImageUpload.

My introduction post is here:

·

Ouch, I see your problem. It really sucks that this can happen. Steer clear of the big guys, I know there are problems structurally with Steemit, but stick to battles that you can win... I see you post decent stuff, you will recover. I had a nice surprise this morning, so I think I can sponsor more people than expected!

·
·

I made a mistake... I won't make it again. I won't join any controversial discussions again. Not worth it. ;-)

I am fairly new to steemit and have primarily been posting pictures of my travels and a few about cryptocurrencies in it's various forms.
I am planning to get a better camera and step up my game a bit with better quality and more professional pictures once I can spare the money, and try my hand at posts regarding architecture / engineering, and more detailed posts about cryptocurrencies. I also enjoy participating into the various contests and hope to post some quality mind benders myself with hopefully decent rewards as incentive.

·

Nice photos already on your blog, I guess you are using something better than a smartphone?

·
·

I used some fairly low-end digital camera's before (under 100 euro), now I use my smartphone honor 8 to take snapshots. Which has a good camera for a mid-range smartphone.

·
·
·

Wow, it's pretty good! I use the oneplus 5. Also decent photos in the right conditions.

Nice initiative, it's good to help people out like this. I remember someone sponsored me when I was just new, and although 0.01$ upvote isn't much, it is a great way to feel supported.
I hope you get to support someone with this, I don't think you should choose me as even though I'm only on Steem since 3 months, there are people who can use the support more than I can.
Keep it up!

·

Yes, and the little support over time counts for something as well. Even more so if you didn't pay for it!

i like seeing people's passions on Steemit. It doesn't really matter the subject matter as much as that it's from people's hearts.

BTW, using Shutterstock images (even with credit) isn't really kosher. The fact that there's still a watermark on it shows that it's not been paid for. Try pixabay and the like next time.

·

The image came linked via Pixabay? So I thought it was okay? I will fix that when I get home!

·
·

Awesome! Thanks! Pixabay (and the like) is normally fine, but definitely if it has the watermark across it, then you know it's not okay. They are perilous waters, aren't they?!

·

·

Tell me about it! Trying to do the right thing is sometimes hard to do!

I've been on Steemit for almost a month and a half. It's one of the best communities I've ever joined, although there are very poor quality posts so you can only have upvotes and make some money. For that very reason, I remain true to what I write: Gaming, Anime, Giveaways and some mysteries.
Whether you win little or not, I want to stay loyal and, above all, I want to help the gaming community and the anime community grow on this platform. In the future, of course, I will talk about more things, but while I'm running out of time, I dedicate myself to these 4 topics.

I thought it was cool @bengy, I did not even know @steembasicincome. It's great to know that people like you are trying to help others. I hope one day I will be able to do the same!

Thanks for everything.

·

This is a great thing, You buy a stake for yourself and a person you want to sponsor. In this case, I will kick in the extra to get to whatever is required to have a full stake.

·
·

Eheheh thanks @bengy :D You're the man :D

·

Oh my, finally I found an anime fan!! Would love to read your posts about anime!!

·
·

Stay tuned! You will see what I will do in the future! eheh

·
·
·

Yeah! Can't wait to see your anime posts XD

·
·
·
·

I'm dropping some of them every week eheh

·

Great! Looking forward to your posts!

I investigate Steemit related subjects. For example, what works better, posting or commenting a lot?
One of my next posts will be about the financial return from steembasicincome.

Al these investigations take quite some time. So it would be nice to have a little extra earning.

·

Hey, it's my other Dutch idiom friend! I am curious about what you might find out, for me I think I mostly stick to posting. I find steemit really makes me want to write, showing that I haven't wanted to do for years!

Thank you @bengy for sponsoring 1 share on steembasicincome to the winner :)

I love to write about self-help and motivational content on Steemit. I realize motivation is equivalent to shower. Shower is something you need to everyday, same goes to motivation. Humans needs motivation all the time in order to keep them going in a meaningful way.

I am passionate in personal development and growth. To me, if I am not growing, I am not living. I am just a body with an empty shell waiting for time to pass. So I want to share all of my knowledge and thoughts and be an advocate.

·

Sounds like a good motivational blog! And by the way, I will be sponsoring as many shares as this post pays out in SBD. Could be 1, could be 10!

·
·

Thank you @bengy :)
Thank you for sponsoring all the winners. I love the concept of steembasicincome, instead of upvoting directly, you have shares that either sponsor yourself which guarantees consistent vote or you can sponsor others, which creates a healthy community :)

That's very generous of you. I remember starting out and not having even .5 SBD. The thought of getting 1 Steem was a huge challenge. Fortunately, I got there an invested in a share. I sponsored a friend who only made one post. Ooops. Ha ha. Regardless, it's very nice of you to be helping people out. No need to put me in the drawing. Just wanted to stop in and support you.

·

Thanks! I remember saving up for my first share, it was a nice feeling to know I would at least get one upvote on a post!

·
·

Yeah, those first posts where I got 0 upvotes were tough. I think I had some of them. Although, I may have upvoted myself. I can't remember. I do know that mentally it really helped motivate me to be getting some vote coming in. :)

·

·
·

Congratulations! This post has been upvoted from the communal account, @minnowsupport, by Bengy (also musicapoetica) from the Minnow Support Project. It's a witness project run by aggroed, ausbitbank, teamsteem, theprophet0, someguy123, neoxian, followbtcnews, and netuoso. The goal is to help Steemit grow by supporting Minnows. Please find us at the Peace, Abundance, and Liberty Network (PALnet) Discord Channel. It's a completely public and open space to all members of the Steemit community who voluntarily choose to be there.

If you would like to delegate to the Minnow Support Project you can do so by clicking on the following links: 50SP, 100SP, 250SP, 500SP, 1000SP, 5000SP.
Be sure to leave at least 50SP undelegated on your account.

The investment in @steembasicincome is well worth the price of 1 Steem per 2 shares. Even if it just keeps you from upvoting your own posts. Save your 10 upvotes a day, for quality posts and comments, and maybe someone will notice you.

I post daily creating 5 minute stories. @mariannewest gives the group of #freewriters, a prompt, today's is "atlas". Now I have to create a story with the word "atlas" in it, but I only have 5 minutes to write. You don't have to worry about spelling, grammer, punctuation, the main thing is to have fun. Come visit us at #freewrite 😎

·

Even more so when someone else is paying for the share!

Anyway, wow that 5 minute write sounds pretty amazing. It's not a lot of time to think of something and get it all out in time!

·
·

They really are fun to create. I hope you have a chance to check some out.

What a great easy contest! I love what youre doing here with the giveaway of SBI. Its great knowing youre making a difference in someones starting journey on Steemit. No need to add me to the contest, I have been lucky enough to win quite a few shares already, lets spread the love! But I wanted to show some love on this great contest! So heres my answer... I personally love to post tutorials on some of my favorite dishes along with pictures of the process and everyday family life.

·

Thanks, I like making my contests easy to participate in. Also, I'm not fond of resteem as an entry requirement, mainly because I don't like cluttering my own blog with contest resteems!

Anyway, I hope the dish making is going well! I broke all of mine for @bashadow....

Thanks for doing this. I would actually like to nominate another user -
https://steemit.com/@trincowski - who writes about Art & Music, and posts photos.

·

Nice, his blog looks interesting!

·
·

It is, he had an unfortunate encounter with a high SP whale, such is life 🤔

·
·
·

So I see, I know someone that also had that same problem. I can't remember how they solved it though. @davemccoy, sorry to bug you, but do you know how @erebus solved his problem?

·
·
·
·

Yeah, it can be a problem. I only know of one way to solve it, and it is expensive!

·
·
·
·
·

Hmmm, yes. This is really a bad structural problem of Steemit....

·
·
·
·
·
·

That or a structural attitude problem of certain users who seem to reside in a certain place known as a a mecca for 'digital nomads'.... 😱

·
·
·

·

One is easier to fix, the other will always exist... Sadly..

Well, that's a very nice thing to offer! I've been here for about a month now, and someone did sponsor me into one share of SBI a while back... it's nice to know that at least one small vote comes on posts.

I like to write about cats and cat related things-- and NOT just an endless stream of kitten photos with nothing to recommend them. I also like write self-help and philosophical musings "through the eyes of a cat looking at humans."

=^..^=

·

Cute photos! The cats really make it into every aspect of digital life! Also going to be first adopters of the Steemit social blockchain!

·
·

Thank you!

Cats first hacked the blockchain (sorry, HAD to-- we were carved on stone blocks...) known as "Ancient Egyptian Culture" and did quite well for themselves, often worshiped and revered; we even had a God (Bastet or Bast) in our image! Steemit is just the latest project ripe for infiltration!

=^..^=

I want to write a different future to the one I see now and hopefully see it begin to happen. Though I struggle with getting the thought of the mind to the print on the paper, I am finding the contests I enter to be of assistance to learning this. A social-economic platform as part of the solution to equality and other global issues.

I had the same problem of inspiration, but I see you are part of @ifc. I found they really have a me a good creative kick, a hook to write around!
