As necessary as income can be in our daily life, it is not a core requirement of staying active regularly in steemit.com.
What is required is passion to create valued contents consistently, to the benefits of the community,even as you interact with others to engender a cohesive community. You may also need a mentality devoid of negativism as it would erode a steady advancement in the community.
Where is the vital position of financial rewards ?
I think it should be a consequence of all aforementioned, instead of being the objective!
We must give , before anticipating receipt. This is a natural order, not exclusive to the steemit community!
Wouldn't you remain committed??
$50-$100 every 3 days is must for someone to stay active as the regular member, right now there is surge in STEEM singupns but the income from STEEM is has a stuck, its too many efforts just to generate few bucks, the voting power is with the elites who signed-up earlier and now only benefit those who speak of them (Acceptable, this is how worlds works). What about newcomers??, there are very few perks them and thus after sometime it become academic and less earning for them, I am new to STEEM as well, there are many thing I still don't know about STEEM and waiting for activity to get noticed and upvoted to generate revenue. But this is rare, the basic income from STEEM is long shot, it's like your have to wait ages and keep digging until you find your pot of GOLD. I have other option which is much more profitable, I get my metal detector and try to find gold at river bed, I always have better luck in Finding GOLD at river bed than generating Basic income from STEEM.
0 , there is no such things as a guaranteed basic income. It doesn't work economic wise, who will pay for it? There is no such thing as free money
