RE: Hive Power Up Day for February 1st 2022

in LeoFinancelast year

Hi @traciyork! Thanks for another PUD post - I'm getting ready to participate once again!

I have a question about Hive Basic Income. I only just properly figured out what this is and it seems like they are an awesome thing because they basically give a lifetime benefit in terms of post upvotes.

But I've only ever heard of them before as rewards on these PUM challenges - so I'm just wondering why they aren't used more commonly?

And for anyone else that didn't know what Hive Basic Income is check this out:

and you can also see your balance if you are using PeakD by going to the PeakD wallet, and then going to the others section.. here's mine:

There was a small amount of pushback against our service a couple of years ago (which has since been resolved, and the instigators have left Hive completely). We opted for a lower profile at that time, and a lot of our growth momentum was lost.
At this point, we don't have the same level of awareness that we used to have. There are still a few contests that use Hive SBI for prizes, though. We have some #contests channels in our Discord server that are a good resource if you're looking for more opportunities to win. https://discord.gg/T5xVBYhm2s

That's one reason to be active in a community - where you get tips about things like HBI/SBI or @dustsweeper or all the other little things that make your Hive life easier.

I make a give away of one share of HBI among the commentators of my posts - but I don't announce it ;)

I do that too, but I don't post very often, so even more reason not to announce it!

Oh now that's an interesting idea!

I did know about @dustsweeper at least, though my vote is enough not to worry about dust. I wonder what other little things I will discover!

Hey @steembasicincome - thanks loads for answering my question! That makes a bit more sense and I've joined your discord.

Now I understand what it does I think it's awesome - I post quite a bit and plan to do so for a long time so lifetime upvotes sound like a no brainer!

I am also planning to run some contests myself soon and am thinking of giving HIVE SBI as prizes.

Just testing my balance....

Seems good doesn't it! Shame it's a bit of a 'hidden' project really!

I can understand why from what they were saying at the top of this thread and with a little adoption, it could take off again - do you reckon?

yeah - I certainly think it's a nice thing for people on Hive to know about it - I'll be looking out for contests where I can get some for sure and will be offering it in some of my own contests/giveaways.
