Steem Basic Income - Enhanced Votes Graphs

2년 전

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.

Enhanced Support Graph

We first published this graph that 'maps' the interrelationships in our member pool a couple of months ago. When we reviewed it last month, there were some very interesting changes, as shown in this post:

And here is the graph from this month:

It only shows the biggest hitters: people that regularly upvote each other or @steembasicincome, with multiple shares for bigger upvotes. That makes sense, because we have 1800 active members across six pools. All of those interrelationships would be too much for this chart.

Last month I wrote that "the enhanced votes graph is a lot less interesting as it used to be, since the leaders of different clusters are not closely bound to each other. Instead it looks like a lot of loosely related accounts which don't have a lot of connections other than their link to @steembasicincome."

This month I found it interesting that the cluster relationships in the leader accounts are starting to tighten up again. I attribute this largely to contests. As members enter each other's contests, it builds relationships that would otherwise have been very weak or non-existent. In effect, we are starting to build our own community between SBI members, as more people recognize the vision and start using it to build each other up. This makes me very optimistic about what will happen when we release SBI 2.0 and start rewarding community engagement. With community engagement happening even without extra incentives in place, imagine what can happen with!

If you think you're in a cluster, it could be more interesting to look for the enhanced graph of an account in your cluster that has a lot of shares. For example, I can approximate the #qc or #fr communities by looking at the enhanced vote graph for @steemquebec as the 'leader' account that showed in our own graph.

You can see that this is a very tightly woven community that uses @steembasicincome as ancillary support. If all the members shown were in pool 1, instead of being spread throughout the pools, we would look more integrated, but would still not be the driving force in this community. It has it's own leaders. In fact, one of them (@soushi888) already translated our new FAQ into French, and it's available here:

Just change the account name in the Steem Reports link to any account you want to look at, or load one account and then there is a box in the page to enter different accounts.

Delegation Bonus Shares

Existing members can receive bonus shares by delegation. For every 20 SP delegated to @steembasicincome, members will receive 1 bonus share. Any Steemian that is already enrolled in @steembasicincome can delegate as much as they would like, to receive bonus shares. We will publish our delegation sources update again this week, so if you want your support showcased, now is your chance!

Here are some Handy Delegation links:



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 accept SBD at our discretion (usually when they're very close, or when SBD is stronger) but you do not receive extra value or any partial refund for paying in SBD instead of STEEM. If we choose to accept an SBD enrollment, we accept the entire amount. If we choose to reject it, we refund the entire amount and request you to send STEEM instead.

Steem Creators Conference

We had a great experience last month at the #steemcreators conference! Check out the tag for footage and photographs from all the presenters and attendees, and see how many photos you can spot @josephsavage in!

Yesterday we posted @josephsavage's presentation on Steem Basic Income.


Steem Basic Income has been 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. Learn more about Earth Nation on their web page at


We broke down the mechanics for how the program works in the complete overview. You can check your share counts and upvoting weight in our spreadsheet explained here. If you have any questions, ask away in the comments section or join us in our discord channel.

Glad to be presented in that graph ;)

Thanks to @soushi888 for the introduction to that great project!

@yveslanthier @studio666 you're there too


Hey! I'm glad to be a part of it! To make a difference in a project it's always a nice feeling! Thanks :)


Glad you feel that way, by the way if you keep posting 3-4 publication per week for a Month, I will add you other parts in that Basic Income Project, which should be a good motivation to continue your excellent content creator passion.


Thanks for giving me share, it's appreciated


You deserve it, continue your alternative medias network!

You now have s Good Basic Income ;)

I have not joined, but would like to join, can I sponsor members who have joined the project ,?


You can sponsor any member of steem. All they need is an account and it would be helpful if they posted at least once a week


I have joined into the project by sending 1 STEEM, I sponsored @steemitnatural ,,
is there anything else i need to do ,,?


We process enrollments in batches, and there is typically a 1-2 day delay.

If you use Steemauto fanbase or SteemVoter, you can also add @steembasicincome for a bonus to your upvote weight.

It's definitely a marvelous program, and a great incentive for newcomers... and a nice way to practice the whole "pay it forward" philosophy.

Going to gift a couple of people in again; but I did notice that I sponsored someone in on 4/4/18 — they got their share, but I could not find myself in the spreadsheets. Probably just fell through the cracks... or did I miss something in the guidelines? Since the Steemit wallet is a bit dodgy on how far you can go backwards, here's a screen shot from Steemd:


Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I checked the transactions and your sponsee had the right count but yours was missed. I have processed your enrollment now. When we move onto our fully automated system, I will make sure it uses your original transaction date/time to calculate your catch up values.


Thank you! I am sure this must have been a huge and rather tedious task to track manually, so I can well understand that a few might slip through the cracks here and there. Appreciate the responsiveness; will definitely sponsor more people in, as we go along!


Considering how many enrollments I have manually processed, it never quite surprises me to find one I missed. Reconciliation of my manual sheets against our automated system (still in testing) has proved illuminating as well.

I have joined, but do not know how I can contribute more in this project, thanks for the answer,


They do a bonus system. To get this allyou have to do it upvote thier posts. The bonus is 0-100% of your shares.
They calculate this bonus on a 28 day running total. So if you upvote 28 times in 28 days you get 100%. The best way to do this is to make sure you upvote thier post or comment everyday. This will double your shares. Then you can save up your steem to get more shares or enter the competitions that give away free sbi shares to the winners.


can i comment anywhere, for example on posting my friends, or must on posting member @steembasicincome
and whether in the post I should include the #steembasicincome tag or I am free to choose my tag


You do not have to use the #steembasicincome tag (and it's better if you don't, unless you are giving shares for a contest or writing about Steem Basic Income).

I'm encouraged to see the project doing so well. It seems like it's continuing to gain traction. I really appreciated the votes when I was starting out and I hope that it continues to help red fish get their start.


Thanks for your support!

Everytime I read about the updates of this project I get such a positive feelingg! Really like the graphs and what you can take from it. Also looking forward what 2.0 will bring! Thanks to everyone for making this project what it is today!


Thank you for your support!

Very cool, but could you please add a link for smaller delegation ?! Currently i'am thinking about to delegate some SP :) Anyhow, very cool. :)


Good idea; I really should have a link for 20 SP. We do recommend that you have enough SP for the slider before delegating, of course. Being able to provide meaningful upvotes to your commenters is a proven method to keep your audience growing.

Lol heavy hitters? Never thought I'd be on a list of heavy hitters.

Posts like this will increase community even more I imagine. Since there's names there in the open, it'll be even easier to see them.

I already see many names I recognize when I flip through the members spreadsheet. Hopefully this network will grow and strengthen even more.

Good points. We are trying to increase community while living in transparency, so I hope you're right!

Ignore me if you have answered this before, how are you generating those graphs?


Thanks! That is one neat tool.

Exciting future for everyone involved. : )

Woah, I'm actually on your graph this time. Thats a major change.



I love this program, SBI kicks ass. Fabulous job. 🍻

Good..I love this graph (you know that). I look at it and see a lot of great people, especially the @dynamicgreentk crew.. I feel in peace with myself knowing that there's a lot of people using steemit like them, with altruism and truly helping newbies to grow.


There are definitely some great people on here! It makes us feel a lot better after last months graph was not very tight-knit to see more connections appearing again.


What I like is that the basic income is connected with the creation of valuable contents and projects.. I mean, so far noone is taking a granted upvote as an excuse to write stuff just for the sake of the vote, but the contrary: it's enhancing the solidarity and equality on this platform. You brainy guy, Joseph!

The underlying philosophy of UBI is that people are basically good, and that with core needs met, they will mostly pursue positive ends, better their lives, etc.

Even though our only quality check is to watch for plagiarism flags, the overall quality level of most content that we support seems high. (But Quality is so subjective!!! I'm sure there are some people that believe we are turning Steem into a nest of roaches...)


But then are we good for our nature or are we good because we have our belly full? I think I need to brush up Machiavelli or Hobbes.. If I have to look for roaches I'll check between the wild flaggers & circle-selfvoting whales, surely not here!

We apologize for the continued delay of our upvotes. We’re working hard to obtain more SP to keep up with all of our amazing Thunder Supporters. Thank you for your continued patience and support! You are the lightning to our THUNDER!

As a friendly reminder, the upvote fee is $0.08 SBD ($0.081 for incognito). Current 300%+ upvote is now $0.10+ SBD.

That being said…


The ground shakes as incredible power lights the sky. The thunder tests the quality of your post and deems it worthy, rewarding it with a 300% upvote, comment and resteem from @thundercurator.

Increase your chances of a 100% upvote and support the project by:

Hi, I love the project. I would like to know if they have support in Spanish. If not. I request your authorization so that this type of publications can reach more Spanish speaking communities.

I request the authorization to carry out the translation and publish it in Spanish. I make it clear that I will mention your permission.


There was a translation of our older Complete Overview into Spanish some time ago. I don't think that our latest FAQ has been translated into Spanish yet. Feel free to translate, but please let me know when you publish so that we can resteem it.

WARNING - The message you received from @zulfajri321 is a CONFIRMED SCAM!
DO NOT FOLLOW any instruction and DO NOT CLICK on any link in the comment!

For more information, read this post:

If you find my work to protect you and the community valuable, please consider to upvote this warning or to vote for my witness.


So, who is @anomaly and why in the world would he upvote the scam post from @zulfajri321?

A look at steemd shows an account that hasn't posted or commented in months, but follows and upvotes spam at a breakneck pace. I couldn't say if it's all spam, cause there are 100s of upvotes per day going back months. Even at 1%, the account's voting power has been completely drained.

It's an anomaly, and it smells very phishy.
@arcange, @steemcleaners, your insights?

@planetenamek toujours là où on l'attend le moins ! :o)

@steembasicincome This is very cool program in steemit. I Love it !!!!!!
