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.

VP Management

Upvoting Reward multipliers are currently at 1.10x until our Voting Power recovers to 80%. Our VP is getting low enough that quite a few accounts are starting to be impacted by our maximum votable amount. If you are limited by this and have delegation in place, you might consider leasing through until our VP recovers. (Our orders are all for 24 weeks, but can delegation can be withdrawn by delegating account at any time).
We will continue aggressively issuing regular lease orders until we are able to bring our VP up to our target levels.

Enhanced Votes Graph

We last published this graph that 'maps' the interrelationships in our member pool seven days ago. Here is our graph and analysis from last time we published it:

And here is the graph from this week:

It only shows people that regularly upvote each other or @steembasicincome, or have high subscription levels for regular upvotes that are too big for our smaller voting accounts to deliver. That makes sense, because we have over 4800 active members that are voted by ten different accounts. All of those interrelationships would be too much for this chart.

Member spotlight: @glastar

Are you active in various language communities, or only in English? @glastar is active in the Japanese language community, and even translated our new FAQ into Japanese for us. If you can read Japanese, or if you are willing to suffer through Google translate for a genuine window into a different culture, then @glastar is a great account to follow!


Change the account name in the Steem Reports link to any account you want to look at:


If you want to get involved, or to increase the level 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 unit in the program. You can sponsor any active Steemian (except for yourself), 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. If we choose to accept SBD without refunding it, you do not receive extra value for it.

Enrollments are processed automatically every 144 minutes.


Please read our FAQ. If you still have questions, ask in the comments section or join us in our discord channel.

You can look up your current membership levels by using !sbi status in a comment, or by using the #bot-commands channel in our discord server.
