Steem Basic Income
Steem Basic Income is a voluntary social experiment to bring a crowdfunded 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.
SBI Word Clouds
The last time we shared our updated word cloud was 7 days ago. With the word cloud part of our regular update rotation now, we will continue sharing it every 7-10 days. That's about once per week, but a little less often when we have really good content in between (like member interviews!)
My favorite word in our word cloud is 'member'! The SBI member is the real hero. We built a framework that allows you to help yourself by helping others, and you have responded en masse. Your support enables us to provide regular support to thousands of accounts and deliver more than 800,000 total upvotes.
Give yourself a pat on the back and then thank another SBI member today!
'SP' and 'mvests'
Steem Basic Income operates as a stake-based subscription service. When you sponsor others, your build their stake and your own. Then you both receive regular upvote support powered by that stake (or based on your delegated SP or upvote bonuses).
We are a voluntaryist response to socialist basic incomes. Instead of operating via force or coercion, using taxes or theft to fund a basic income, we work to build blockchain-powered incentives that encourage people to help each other.
This week I saw that 'Interviews' popped up in our word cloud. We have published almost 20 member interviews and will continue to publish more. If you would like to help us create quality content, please consider joining our SBI Writer Group. Writers earn SBI bonus units, STEEM/SBD rewards, and recognition. Due to persistently low STEEM prices, we have increased the SBI bonus units available!

If you want to get involved, or to increase the 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, 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.
