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.

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.

Greetings, I am receiving votes from sbi6, but the vote is not ascending.

We are working to improve the value of votes from @sbi6. The vote value depends on a lot of factors that are outside our control.

Very nice that you list all these opportunities for people to get involved!

We're just amazed at how many members are doing great things to build the community!

This post has received a 2.35 % upvote from @drotto thanks to: @peppermint24.

Thanks @peppermint24, we appreciate it!

Thanks @steembasicincome for the contest that you had shared. Resteemed for this , so that other steemians knows about the contest. Keep it up!

Thanks! All of these contests are held by our members, so we appreciate you helping to get the word out.

Thanks for giving my contest a plug

You're welcome. Thanks for hosting a contest!

Thanks! I don't know how I missed this one.

Awesome initiative. Will be sending over a sponsor shortly. Keep it up

Thanks for the shoutout @steembasicincome!

You're welcome!

Going to try to get into some of these contests, just to have a blast! Winning or getting anything is just a bonus!

They do seem really fun, don't they?

Got involved in that Formula 1 and wanted to get involved in the football betting one, but we don't quite understand Asian handicap betting. Nvm. Looking out for more!

Asian handicap is a little complicated, isn't it?

Maybe we're the handicap ones in our minds (sorry if the joke is insensitive to anyone - apologies)! But yes it's a bit complicated.

When we add ourselves and a friend do they get a comment notification or do they just start to see mysterious love on their posts? :)

We send a confirmation transaction on initial enrollment, but not on subsequent enrollments.

I'm seeing some I haven't entered yet, thanks for the reminder SBI.

Uh-oh, you better get right on that! (:

We would like to share that We just posted a new creative writing contest
as part of the @steemsilvergold group and the #piratesunday fun....we would love to see a bunch of entries! The prize is of course a @steembasicincome sponsorship for the winner and the post pay out too!

Awesome! Thanks for letting us know. We will include in the next listing.

Just to clear some things up: If I decide to increase my share / sponsor more people I just sen 1 or more STEEM to @steembasicincome and in memo write the @useriwanttosponsor then my share increases that means I get bigger up votes every week for the rest of the time as long as steemit and your channel exist? Please correct me if I am wrong.

That's about the size of it.

Released on: May 14th
