A week ago, I offered a #steembasicincome unit to any non-bot account that left a comment to this post before the post’s payout.

I got ten comments including two who requested an SBI unit for another citizen of Steemlandia:

@marcelo182 (requested by @alaqrab)
@phoenixwren (requested by @shanibeer)

So I sponsored each for a #steembasicincome unit:



Odd factoid: 93 accounts upvoted the post, but only 10 left comments. A few of those upvotes were from bots, but many who didn’t comment were probably from people who vote with #steemauto. Nothing wrong with that of course, but folks who do that do sometimes miss out on freebies.


What’s the future hold for #steembasicincome? Since HF 21/22, there’s been a least one large account sporadically downvoting posts that benefit from the upvotes of various SBI bots. And the SBI team has dramatically cut back on their own posting. Gotta admit that I wonder if the SBI model is viable long-term, particularly if in the future there are significant changes to the reward pool system. There have after all been hints that STEEM may at some point become a utility token, and that rewards might become SMT-based. If blogging fades into the background on the blockchain, will SBI’s business model become untenable?

Thx, @preparedwombat! I never turn down a freebie - unless it costs more to own than not ;). In this case, it’s an opportunity to learn about another aspect of the Steem ecosystem, even if it has perhaps a questionable longevity. Even a failed experiment can produce valid and useful data, even if it’s “better not try that again!” :)

You are a scholar and a gentleman for sharing your wealth and wonderful content with the block chain citizens.

I will admit to doing less commenting than I usually do as I have been concentrating my efforts off chain a bit the last month. It is January and the beginning of a new year which is going to be the best yet for me here.

I enjoy my little sbi-related downvotes as I find it funny an ex bot owner doing a 180 and flagging automatic upvotes. Joseph and sbi will keep on keeping on and that other fool will be flushed from the community.

Happy new year my friend.

For the record. I saw that post but I didn't want to leave a comment for a free sbi share. Neat experiment though.

Much appreciation. I now have 5 SBI. One more SBI and I double what I had over a year ago.

Thank you, that's really great - also a great idea for distributing sbi shares as you know they are going to people that at least want them and are more likely to use them.
Sbi is an experiment in universal income and that's going to become an increasing requirement as we move into an AI world. I guess sbi may transmute into a new form, depending on the environment but the need for something like sbi will continue and will need a solution.
