My SteemBasicIncome Update (Spoiler: I Love SBI!)


I am a big believer in steembasicincome. This is the brainchild of @josephsavage and he has worked really hard to get this program where it is today.

From his original idea where he was working on a spreadsheet (!) to today when he has teams of people and systems in place, this program has been a mainstay and beacon of hope for me on steem. I am proud to be one of the first users, and only want to participate more.

Here is what I will talk about today:

  • What is sbi?
  • How to get shares.
  • How many shares I have now.
  • How can I get a bigger vote?
  • Plans for the future.

What is sbi?

SBI is the steem version of universal basic income. This is a concept with the idea that everyone deserves an income for being a citizen of a place.

Here, we are citizens of steem. If you have sbi shares and blog here, you will get votes from sbi. This concept is tempered in reality with an exclusion for bad content and a restriction that you get votes to the level of shares that you have.

The more shares you have, the higher the vote you get.

Aside from this basic information, there is a lot more detail you can find on the blog at @steembasicincome. I do not worry about it too much and just attempt to get more shares!

How I get shares.

  • I buy them
    Send 1 steem per share and mention another steem blogger in the memo. Both of you get one share. Done!
  • I win them
    So many bloggers offer sbi shares in contests that I cannot begin to list them here. I look on contest posts that sbi has a couple of times a week and the daily @contestkings post as well. Further, I browse in steemnow for new posts and find them often there.

There are so many contests for sbi shares that I never enter them all, but I try my best.

How many shares I have now.

I have two blogs and also help my son @bxlphabet with his. He blogs, but does not deal with the money side of steem at all, so I help him with it.

These are the shares we have now based on my sbi status requests. You can do these requests on a comment anywhere on steem, and in seconds you get the reply.

We all post 2-4 times a day and this makes the vote value fluctuate.

  • more posts; smaller vote
  • less posts; bigger vote

It all comes out properly in the end. SBI has big robots (or something) figuring all this out.

How can I get a bigger vote?

  • You can vote for sbi posts
    I do this vote daily with all three blogs with the @steemdunk auto-voter so I do not have to think about it.

  • You can delegate to sbi
    I am not doing this, but I plan to when I have more sp.

Plans for the future

  • Enter more contests
    I fall off the truck at times and forget to enter contests. Since I have such good results with winning contest, this is a bad plan!
  • Buy more shares
    I was on a plan of buying a couple of shares a week and got off of that. But now I am back on. 2 shares per week is 100 per year. This will not make a big dent in my life now, and will pay of well in the future.
  • Delegate to sbi
    This will happen when I have 1000 of my own sp on any of the blogs. This is a few months off in time for fitinfun, and longer for the other two blogs.

In Conclusion

Thats it! If you have any ideas for me about improving with sbi, please tell me what you know.

If you have questions based on this post, ask them in the comments. I want to here from you.
