Steem Basic Income - Enhanced Votes Graph

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.

Enhanced Support Graph

We first published this graph that 'maps' the interrelationships in our member pool a couple of months ago. When we reviewed it last week, there were some interesting improvements, as shown in this post:

And here is the graph from this month:

It only shows the biggest hitters: people that regularly upvote each other or @steembasicincome, with multiple shares for bigger upvotes. That makes sense, because we have 1800 active members across six pools. All of those interrelationships would be too much for this chart.

This month I found it interesting that the cluster relationships in the leader accounts are starting to tighten up again. I attribute this largely to contests. As members enter each other's contests, it builds relationships that would otherwise have been very weak or non-existent. In effect, we are starting to build our own community between SBI members, as more people recognize the vision and start using it to build each other up. This makes me very optimistic about what will happen when we release SBI 2.0 and start rewarding community engagement. With community engagement happening even without extra incentives in place, imagine what can happen with!

If you think you're in a cluster, it could be more interesting to look for the enhanced graph of an account in your cluster that has a lot of shares. For example, I can approximate the Dynamic Steemians community by looking at the enhanced vote graph for @dynamicgreentk as the 'leader' account that showed in our own graph.

You can see that this is a very tightly woven community, with many members in the SBI community. The top 5 pool accounts are all shown here! Check out their discord to see what they're doing to create such a tightly knit community.

Just change the account name in the Steem Reports link to any account you want to look at, or load one account and then there is a box in the page to enter different accounts.

Delegation Bonus Shares

Existing members can receive bonus shares by delegation. For every 20 SP delegated to @steembasicincome, members will receive 1 bonus share. Any Steemian that is already enrolled in @steembasicincome can delegate as much as they would like, to receive bonus shares. We will publish our delegation sources update again this week, so if you want your support showcased, now is your chance!

Here are some Handy Delegation links:



If you want to get involved, or to increase the share of 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 share 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. We are not currently accepting SBD.

Steem Creators Conference

We had a great experience in April at the #steemcreators conference! Here is @josephsavage's presentation on Steem Basic Income, which we published at the end of April.



Steem Basic Income is designed by @josephsavage, and developed in collaboration with @earthnation. We are grateful for their early support, both in brainstorming ideas for improvement and in providing funding for our massively complex automation requirements.

This brought tears and goosebumps to my world. Thank you! This is amazing!

I don't have any sponsor to join SBI. Is there any contest that I can join in order for me to enroll SBI from sponsors?

We published a contest listing just a couple of days ago.

@steembasicincome I joined a week ago..just have one question, if you send for example 4 STEEM with one sponsee name, how many shares do you get each?
Ohh, one more question🙂... Can I sponsor more people now, and will I get more shares then?

In the example given, you would each get 4 shares. You can sponsor as many people as you would like, and you continue to get shares each time.

Thank you very much for your quick reply!!

You're welcome!

We apologize for the continued delay of our upvotes. We’re working hard to obtain more SP to keep up with all of our amazing Thunder Supporters. Thank you for your continued patience and support! You are the lightning to our THUNDER!

As a friendly reminder, the upvote fee is $0.12 SBD ($0.121 for incognito). Current 300%+ upvote is now $0.36+ SBD.
Join our 10 SP Challenge!!!

That being said…


The ground shakes as incredible power lights the sky. The thunder tests the quality of your post and deems it worthy, rewarding it with a 300% upvote, comment and resteem from @thundercurator.

Increase your chances of a 100% upvote and support the project by:

Investors who delegate SP to @thundercurator are entitled to 75% of @thundercurator income after curation. Get on-board early and grow with us!

projects from @steembasicincome more and more joined, hopefully with more and more members more successful,
for members who only send 1 Steem how much profit he got?

Each share currently receive weekly value of about $0.05.

for members who are only able to delegate 1 Steem how to be more exist?
and how to get more votes?

We recommend waiting until you have you have enough SP for the slider before delegating to projects.

We have many members that hold regular contests. Watch #steembasicincome tag for contest posts or look at our regular listings.

Looking good SBI, a whole lotta love shared between these people.

It's a good start.

So, I'm just trying to understand this. How is the SBI paid out? I saw I received an upvote from @sbi4. You get paid out by automatically getting upvotes from the pool? I'm just wondering as I don't post much but want to start posting more and really like this idea of a UBI on steem.

Yeah, it's paid out as upvotes from the pools. The size of the upvote is based on your number of shares and your posting frequency (to accommodate people who don't want to post everyday and and not unfairly reward people who post multiple times a day).

Keep it up @steembasicincome . By the way, just a quick question, there is no issue if I will add another sponsorship? There is no limit with that?

You can sponsor as many people as you would like.

Thank you for your response @sbi4 .

Either you or someone who valued your post shared this post on Pimp Your Post Thursday in the Steemit Ramble discord. Looking forward to you visiting us again.

I love this program and appreciate all you are doing!

Thanks for your support!

looks great will there be another google doc update like last time?

The google doc is linked from our FAQ, and from a pinned post in our discord. It is kept updated on an ongoing basis.

great thanks i should have i checked for it being updated thanks again =]

Gamification at its best! I'm proud of being part of this and doing my part for spreading the basic income values.. if there's a way to further integrate my contest with the sbi environment I'm at the forefront!
