A New Job Listing & Job Creation with Hive Stake-Based Income as Payment: Promotional Compliment Writer for the FreeCompliments Community!

This past week, I created Hive’s first official job posting. I am thrilled to report that, out of this posting, came not only one job – but two jobs! Indeed, I had a few applicants, and I managed to create an additional job for one of them. Both are data entry/reporting jobs, one of which was for the FreeCompliments Community, and the other for my personal account. Both jobs have potential for additional duties, raises, and bonuses.

Using the HSBI (Hive Stake-Based Income) model to pay employees allows them to receive permanent income as long as they keep creating posts. This means that even if they work for only a month or so, they’ll have a lifetime income, in the form of votes, as a result of the HSBI Units they receive, provided they keep posting to Hive.

Now, I am creating another position with a slightly different payment structure, but also utilizing HSBI. It will also exemplify the spirit of the FreeCompliments’ community’s goals to spread joy throughout Hive.

The Job

This job will be done on a consistent basis, with payment delivered on the basis of performance. You will act as the Promotional Compliment Writer for the FreeCompliments community, similar to what I currently do.

  • Across a variety of Hive posts, write compliments directly related to the topic at hand.

  • At the end of your comment, in subtext, include a link promoting the FreeCompliments community.

  • Continue engagement if the author to whom you replied reciprocates or expressed interest.

  • Avoid spamming: the compliments must be genuine, relevant, and unique.

  • Record the comments in which you promote FreeCompliments, and record whether any of the people with whom you interact join the community.

  • Send me the above information (preferably via Discord) so that I can determine the payment you’ll receive.

  • Performing the aforementioned tasks on a consistent basis.

Examples will be provided for reference when the employee is hired.

The payment offer

For every 5 comments that follow the above guidelines, containing a promotion to join the FreeCompliments community, you will receive 1 HSBI Unit. For every member that you manage to bring aboard the community, you will receive 2 HSBI Units. High quality compliments will receive additional HSBI Units.

Thus, this payment structure is entirely performance-based, as opposed to a traditional income which is paid in time intervals. It also permits more freedom in terms of when you can perform this work. However, in order to avoid prolonged periods of inactivity, it is important for me to know that you will still be able to perform this line of work on a consistent basis. We can negotiate this in our discussion, although I would expect an absolute minimum of 7 promotional comments per week.

Negotiations about payment are also on the table, provided you deliver consistently excellent work.

Continuing to build Hive’s economy by adding different types of jobs

The additional creation of jobs with various structures permits the expanding use case of Hive as a payment for services, in line with Hive’s function as a medium of exchange. Creating multiple types of jobs using a similar payment system provides an initial basis for what can be considered a fair payment, thus establishing Hive as a unit of account. The more jobs are created with Hive, the more we will validate its practical value. Once this happens, we will more readily be able to establish a consistent value of assets in terms of Hive, since it will be attached to work requirements; this will establish Hive’s store of value. Combining all of these factors will turn Hive into functional money.

An economy must be built upon functional money. This is why we must take steps to ensure that Hive can, indeed, function as intended. Let’s continue creating different types of jobs and establish Hive’s practical value with practical use cases.


In order to help the FreeCompliments and help continue the validation of Hive and HBD as valid forms of money, this is a job posting using HSBI with a different purpose and, thus, a different structure of payment. Let’s continue building both the community and bringing value to the Hive economy.

What do you think of this job posting? Is the payment offer fair, and are there other positions that you think would help support this community’s growth?

Next you'll need to promote one of your complimenters to oversee the rest so that you don't have to evaluate all of their compliments yourself!

Ha, that's exactly the entire operation grows! It's certainly a possibility as the community continues to expand in scope.

Thanks for stopping by here, by the way. 😁

Is HSBI (Hive Stake-Based Income) now the official name? I had been just sticking to SBI because "Hive Steem Based Income", which is the only expansion of HSBI I have seen people use in the past, seemed silly to me. But I like the sound of Hive Stake-Based Income. I think I will start using that going forward!

Good luck finding takers on your job!


We brainstormed better words for the well known acronym when Hive launched, and it's actually been Hive Stake Based Income the entire time we've been on Hive. Nobody that already knows how it works reads the FAQ, or they skim the intro and look for the section they're looking for, so it never caught on.

Wow! I guess that includes me then! 😂 I've read through that FAQ several times, skimming as I look for the info I need as you say, yet my eyes must have skipped over the name each time.

Well, I just set two text expansions to change SBI to HSBI and SBI() to change to HSBI (Hive Stake-Based Income) so I'll do my part to spread the official name.

Thank you! It looks like I'll have at least one. 😊

And it also looks like @josephsavage answered your question too, haha. HSBI is certainly how I know the program now.

You must be killin' it out here!
@dbooster just slapped you with 1.000 PIMP, @freecompliments.
You earned 1.000 PIMP for the strong hand.
They're getting a workout and slapped 1/3 possible people today.


Read about some PIMP Shit or Look for the PIMP District

If it's about the comments and stuff that brings people compliments and smiles then I think im in.

I read about the hsbi initiative and I think it's something that's very beneficial to every hive user especially the new users just starting out.

Yes, that's exactly what it's all about! The ultimate goal is to spread joy around. This entire project must run on heart.

The promotional aspect of this just involves linking to this community; I'd show you examples of how I've done it. Please reach out to me on Discord and we can discuss the job details further (the link is at the bottom of the post).

@clairemobey is going to be retrenched from work soon, so she's going to be available for a variety of work from home positions.

She'll be looking at some sort of admin work, but these works, gaining HSBI would be great for her earnings in the long run.

Based on what you're telling me here, this job might actually be the more lucrative option for @clairemobey, provided a lot of comments are written. What do you think, Claire?

Activity is key here, and is certainly my strong point; especially if incentivised.

If you'd like, you can start both jobs! The promotional job on Monday, and the assistant job tomorrow. You'd get a sign-on bonus and full week's pay (on Monday) for the assistant job if you start tomorrow! How does that sound? 😊

Just reach out to me on the FreeCompliments Discord and we can arrange things.

@freecompliments I will do so ❤️ thank you!


So, I noticed that you're in South Africa. The time zone would make 8-9 p.m. EST (my time zone) 2-3 a.m. SAST (your time zone). Do you think that would be sustainable for you to do for the assistant position on a daily basis?

Yes, that has been worrying me. Honestly, the time difference is hectic. I would either be late or early with my reports, and I'm not sure if the data would still be valuable. I certainly don't want you to think I haven't given it consideration.

Awesome babe!

Do it! 🫶💪💗💕❤

A great opportunity for anyone looking to get more involved on Hive!

Thank you! 😊

I think this can definitely help connect more parts and communities of Hive for a common goal of spreading joy.

I can do this for some period of time. However, I must warn that I am a Portuguese speaker, and any interaction in another language will be mediated using translation services, such as google translate.

Actually, this would work out exceptionally well because we can have promotional compliment writers in different languages! You can place your efforts in Portuguese communities (and also a bit of English here and there, as well as any other languages with which you're comfortable), and native English speakers can work with those who also primarily speak English.

Please reach out to me on Discord (the link is available on the bottom of the post) and we can discuss further details. 😊

Excellent these opportunities full of joy and love, as a new user I can say that in addition to training the brain with readings and information, it has been the best way to add income. thanks Hive. I would like to be part of this work team.

Wonderful! I'm very happy to welcome new users and help them grow with the community. Please contact me on Discord (the link is at the bottom of this post) and we can discuss further details. 😊

On a financial basis, this will help you get off to a wonderful start!

This is a great opportunity for anyone with a bit of time. Thanks for the work you are doing! ❤️

This is Awesome!

Was wondering wut HSBI means and do.. it looks like solid model... Looks fair enough to me!

Thanks so much! 😊

HSBI is actually surprisingly sustainable, and I can foresee the entire project growing significantly faster than Hive's inflation. This bodes well both for the whales with a lot of HSBI Units, as well as the newbies just starting to get votes for content.

Interesting opportunity to participate by interacting with compliments. It's a win-win relationship. Ingenious and productive idea 👏👏👏👏😃

Thanks so much! Yes, I hope it has the intended effect of making people smile and bringing them into the community so they can, in turn, make people smile too. 😁

My previous @v4vapp proposal has expired. I have a new one which is running but unfunded right now. I'm still running @v4vapp and all my other services.

I've just updated v4v.app and I'm getting ready for some exciting new features after the next hard fork.

Please consider asking your friends to vote for prop #265 or consider unvoting the return vote.

For understandable reasons in the current crypto climate it is harder to get funded by the DHF, I accept this so I'm asking a wider audience for help again. I'll also add that I power up Hive every day and usually power up larger amounts on 1st of the Month. I'm on Hive for ideological reasons much more than for only economic benefit.

Additionally you can also help with a vote for Brianoflondon's Witness using KeyChain or HiveSigner

If you have used v4v.app I'd really like to hear your feedback, and if you haven't I'd be happy to hear why or whether there are other things you want it to do.

While I haven't used the app, I do appreciate the work you're doing. I'll give you a vote. 😊

Edit: and witness, too. You're very knowledgeable about how Hive works and clearly have an interest in its overall welfare.

This is a great job offer. I will be also share it around. The number of members seems to be growing. Such a great initiative.

Thanks so much! Please do share. I might be able to give this job out to more than person since it's performance-based. :D

Ok wonderful - I will pass it on

Yes, I like using HSBI because although it's not as direct as paying with Hive, it encourages long term on-chain activity and pays off more in the long run. There's power to long-term thinking and investment!

Wow....this is a great medium for engagement and connecting genuinely with people on Hive. !luv it.✨
