Who Wants An SBI Unit?steemCreated with Sketch.

In various posts and comments I’ve mentioned how much I like the fact that when you’re buying #steembasicincome shares/units by default you’re helping to strengthen Steemlandia’s ecosystem because you’re simultaneously buying shares/units for yourself and for others.

Upon this post’s payout, I will sponsor a #steembasicincome unit for any non-bot person who has posted a comment below prior to this post’s payout.


Keep in mind that this will work best for those who already have some SBI units. Given dust limitations, one SBI unit all by itself isn’t all that useful. But I guess it’s a start.

Some Caveats

I reserve the right to be arbitrary and capricious.

If you and your 82 alt accounts all post comments, don’t expect to get 83 SBI units.

As of posting this, I have about 40 liquid Steem in my account, and that might go up or down by the time of this post’s payout. If 500 people post comments, well, we’ll have a problem. I guess I’d do something like use an online random number generator to choose who gets the units. But given how quiet it’s seemed around here lately, this might well not be a problem.

So, who wants an SBI unit?


Say what you will about the Steem(it) soap opera of the last few months, but I firmly believe that those earning and/or buying SP now will be very happy that they did so in the years to come.

I recently won a SBI unit of generous @preparedwombat...
however I have to say that I still do not get the mechanics behind it...
so first of all... you can invest steem to both either give yourself or someone else SBI units? but then there are also bonus units?
and what could I expect if I buy SBI units for lets say 100 steem??


To answer the other part of your question, 100 STEEM would get you enough units for about $0.23 per week right now. This changes constantly as it depends on the reward value that can be generated by the underlying SP, etc. and how much that would mean for each post depends (as @preparedwombat mentioned) on how frequently you choose to post.


you can invest steem to both either give yourself or someone else SBI units?

It’s not either/or. If A spends 1 Steem to sponsor B, A and B each get a SBI unit.

Bonus units are for people who have SBI units and delegate Steem Power to @steembasicincome

The votes you receive depend on a mixture of how many units you have and how frequently you post.

It constantly changes based on how often you post. I currently have 13 active posts so will get less for each than if I posted 4 or 5 times a week. There’s a code you can put into a comment that a bot will reply to showing your current holdings and an estimate for your next upvote:

Hi @solarwarrior!

  • your rshares balance is 94313456366 or 0.057 $
  • you need to wait until your upvote value (current value: 0.011 $) is above 0.012 $

    Did you know Steem Basic Income has a Quality Policy?

Hi @preparedwombat!

Well who doesn't want an SBI unit? Certainly not me!

Thanks for doing this. If I'm entitled to a share then please give it to one of the smaller accounts instead. I'm going to buy more shares in coming weeks to help boost some redfish who are doing good work

I love SBI... I'm in..



Guess we did have the same idea. Great to see another also giving something back in stead of only accepting!

I'm always glad to get some more SBI :) Not because of the increase in revenue but because it makes my posts trend higher on the trending list which increases engagement, love me some engagement :)


Meh. Don’t worry about the Trending page. So much dreck there anyway. 😏


Yeah, don't bother your mind too much about trending. So much of trending was dumb nonsense and drama that I completely stay away from that dumpster fire now. Best you can do is gain some new people here and there by just posting enough interesting stuff.

growing my account is my biggest priority now as well. I will love to have SBI units and thank you so much. How do I give shares to people please?


Each unit costs 1 Steem that you send to @steembasicincome with the username of whoever you’re sponsoring in the memo line.

@steembasicincome has a link to a FAQ in each or their posts that explains it in more detail.

Well because you are one of the most generous people I know here on Steem, this one is for you.
I know it isn’t much but every bit helps I guess!

Mmh, first have to figure out how to add an image to a comment via Partiko!

Awesome idea. I have started giving away a sbi share every morning inspired by your recent post


That's a great idea #sostealingthat !tip

I think I have one unit of SBI, but I don't quite know at this point. They came up with different levels and pools and I figured, well, ok, this is getting complicated. I'll just go wait in the corner and let'em keep at whatever they're up to and I'll be sure to go back and figure out what they're doing after I figure out the Steem economy, cryptocurrency, blockchain technology and everything else on my list... which will definitely happen very soon I'm sure.

\0/ I love SBI Units! And YES, sometimes the soap wars on Steem are a bit depressing, but growing my account is my only focus and I have no doubt I will be happy with that decisions in the months and years to come.

Steem ON!

Yes please, I would love a SBI. Thanks. :-)

I firmly believe that those earning and/or buying SP now will be very happy that they did so in the years to come

I agree 100%.. I'm fairly new to Steem, but it is definitely the time to start #stackin..

And I would love an SBI unit!

Thanks, @preparedwombat!!!

I'll take one if it's available. Thank you.

I have been accumulating SBIs almost as fast as Steem these days so why stop!

I'd love to have another SBI share, very generous of you!
Have a nice day :)

That's a nice offer! I would love to have one. And I'm fairly sure that I'm a non-bot person ;)

meeee. i only have a couple right now.

I wouldn't mind an SBI unit if you could spare. Saw your post and I'm shamelessly hoping to get the benefit. I stuck around the platform still believing it to be fun despite the drama it has. I'm in for the long hold.

Sign me up!

I sure would love another SBI!! You were actually the person who sponsored me in, and since your sponsorship, I have accumulated over 250 units !!! So, I thank you @preparedwombat for waking me up to the world of universal basic income on the STEEM blockchain 💪🏻🙏🏼💡

This reminds me of a small upvote from SBI that I used to receive on a daily basis some months back. But how come I don't see it regularly now?


Their voting patterns have changed a bit over time but my guess is maybe you need a few more units to get over a dust threshold. You’ll have another one after this post pays out.


Ah I see. Thanks man!

Well well, I certainly had bought a few with SBI units and it is fun to do so when there is extra Steem or SBD lingering around. However, seeing the SBI accounts are low in VP wondering whether they are still sustainable.
