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.

Lucky 13? Instead of trying to be thoroughly comprehensive (and then end up not publishing) like we have the last couple of times, we have only included the most recent 13 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 3-4 days.


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.

What I mean is I have come out of retirement

(@taskmanager, and any TaskManager related service fully supports @steembasicincome, this meme is not a real "complaint" nor does it imply any lack of intended services on behalf of @steembasicincome. @steembasicincome was working as intended, and @tmholdings is simply coming out of "retirement")


I'm working on a fresh data pull and your account will be moved out of inactive.

For the record, we do hold a similar amount of your bitshares token, but we did not come post memes on your pages complaining about them leaving money on the table by going inactive for more than six weeks.

We assume that just like we're making the appropriate decisions for our program, you're making the right decisions for yours.


Supposed to be humorous, if you took offence I apologize. The TASKMANAGER token is about receiving votes, and @steembasicincome gets one from pretty much every TASKMANAGER related account, as well as any other unrelated accounts in our control.

I personally have never been inactive for 6 weeks, and have been working away on other projects like #upfundme and increasing automation for everything TASKMANAGER related. This has reduced content output quite a bit.

A retirement account that follows and votes those in the retired tab for when they wake up could be a wonderful idea. This would need little to no SP and should rarely vote... That way when someone wakes up from a nap or break they don't think @steembasicincome has forgotten about them.

Owners of the TASKMANAGER token should confirm themselves by posting a comment on a recent TASKMANAGER post or comment.

Thanks for mentioning our fortune-telling contest for free sbi!

@steembasicincome I have selected you and upvote via

I am very interested in this contest
