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.

We are thrilled to see so many members holding contests to decide who to sponsor into Steem Basic Income. Great job, everyone!
Please try to think about your submissions and reward these great hosts with quality submissions. If you enjoy somebody’s contest format, check their feed for more, and follow them so that you don’t have to wait for our listing to come out! Each contest may have its own rules, so please read the contest post thoroughly before entering.
I specifically wanted to list this contest first, since @tfcoates is having a contest to reward people that kick off their own contests! That’s going to make it hard for me to list every contest here (will stop at 13 or so again), so check out the comments on this post where people will be listing the contests they kicked off to enter this contest!
Contest for newbies (new Steemians less than 6 months old!) - share something about yourself and why you should win.
There are two days left for @phoenixwren’s ‘Get to Know Your Nature’ photography contest! Winners are chosen by her cats - and there are no entries yet, so go get it!
Fun new format- enter to win a share by telling why you should not win a share!
Let’s talk bamboo! Or comment about bamboo for a chance to win.
Did you know there have been a year of #punday already? Nominate your favorite puns to win SBI for you and the pun-writer.
How do you manage the impression that others have of you? Share your thoughts and personal impressions with @bengy for a chance to win!
Try to guess what the post payout will be. Requires full upvote, but it’s a fun game format.
You probably saw this one already, but I had to include it again! Provide captions to the three photographs. First and second place prizes for each category, plus wildcard prizes. Don’t miss out!
Like sci-fi? Know any hidden gems? Share an underappreciated film and describe why it is important to you. Examples are provided. Let your sci-fi flag fly! No limit to number of prizes- any quality entry that meets the requirements could potentially win.
What do you know, that just ain’t so? Get weird, get creative, make something up, make @johngreenfield laugh!
One day left! Get your doggo photos in to the #dogsofsteemit challenge...
Here’s an interesting format… post a comment, then upvote everybody else’s comments. The comment with the fewest upvotes will win! So even if you lose, you win upvotes… Get out there and enter, then sabotage everybody else with your upvotes!
Tell about yourself, your interests, and why you’re interested in SBI.
Instead of trying to be thoroughly comprehensive (and then end up not publishing) like we have before, we have only included the most recent contests (skipping duplicates). If we missed yours, feel free to share it in the comments for our readers to find, and to stop by our Discord server to post it in the contests channel.
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 accept SBD for enrollments. The current delay on enrollment processing is 5-6 days. We are working to catch this up as quickly as possible, but of course we need to do important things like posting updates and contest lists!
Please read our recently published FAQ. Most questions are addressed in our FAQ or in the additional resources that it suggests. If you still have questions, ask in the comments section or join us in our discord channel. To review your share counts, we explain our tracking sheet here.
