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 2-3 days.


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.

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.


I have a question. Currently I have 26 shares and I regularly upvote your posts. If I change my posting frequency to one post per week. How many % of upvote can I get from you.

Your weekly weight currently is about 30%, so if you posted only once a week, it would gradually move toward that number. We use a 4-week average in addition to 1 week actual post count, as a protection against people going inactive for a week and then posting a lot before we can adjust their weight back down.

You have collected your daily Power Up! This post received an upvote worth of 0.34$.

Hi! Is there an easy way for me to enroll two people with 1 STEEM instead of taking one for myself? I’m giving out shares in a contest and I’d like to award more prizes. I know I could just send the STEEM to one person to enroll the other but it would be great to be able to do it by myself. Thanks for all you’re doing!

That's a use-case I didn't think to add to our data model, so I will have to make the adjustments manually. Send the names with a colon in between like this: @sbi3:@sbi2 and we will assign both shares to the sponsored parties instead of assigning one to you.

Great, thanks so much! I will do that when the contest ends on Sunday. Hope it’s not a huge bother.

Hmmm cool!
I like this solution, I might employ it in the future

I was wondering the same thing, thanks for a great question @malloryblythe and thank you for clearing this up @steembasicincome.

Great that you make these lists @steembasicincome!

I have a contest/drawing for SBI shares running right now to celebrate reaching 200 followers.

Thanks for all you do!


Fun! I posted a dinosaur to your brother's post. :-)

I got this one, but apparently the formatting was botched so it looked like it was text after the list. I fixed the formatting so that it's numbered correctly.

Hi @steembasicincome ! You forgot mine again, it's open for 1 day left ! I will renew it each week !

I checked it out. I'm not a gamer, but it looked like a cool, ongoing contest.

I think I might have skipped it because it had so little time left. I will try not to miss it next time.

Thank you for including my contest! I appreciate it so much! 🤗 i love SBI!

Wow! Lots of great contests.
We just posted one last night, a fun one involving a gypsy fortune teller. Could you please include it on the list? Thanks!

I don't like bananas, but I added your contest anyway.

You don't like bananas?

Do you mean you don't like them as a food, or you don't like cute little banana characters who make jokes and run contests?

p.s. Thanx for adding us!

As a food. Really it's just the flavor... and the smell... and the texture. There is nothing to like about a banana. But what you're doing is great!

You know what they say... There's some fruit for everyone. 🍒 🍏 🍉

I run a weekly nature identification thread that pays out prizes in sbi shares, I'll need to start tagging it steembasicincome!

I try to also check mentions to not miss any, but sometimes they still slip through.

Thank you for listing the new contests. Time to get busy entering. 👍👍

Greetings! I am a minnow exclusive bot that gives a 4X upvote! I recommend this amazing guide on how to be a steemit rockstar! I was made by @EarthNation to make Steemit easier and more rewarding for minnows.
