Why we give away free money

We are a 100% independent think tank and campaign lab from Berlin. Our mission: prototyping the future of society.

We believe that a digitized society works better with a universal basic income. As hands-on visionaries we explore a basic income society practically - one basic income at a time.

With our experimental approach we have:

  • raised almost 1.5 million Euros equaling more than 120 basic incomes
  • built a platform which has inspired and engaged millions
  • sparked a national and international debate

What's next?

How can we create a society in which everybody can find fulfillment?

Basic Income

Can it be financed? We want to find out by starting the first self-financed basic income community with 100+ people.

Democracy

How can social movements efficiently get organized digitally? What is the digital future of (direct) democracy?

Commons

Could we share money? We're finding out by building a platform which lets people share their bank accounts.

FAQ

What is all this about?

At Mein Grundeinkommen we run the first crowdfunded basic income experiment. So far we have crowdfunded and raffled out more than 120 basic incomes, which is 1,5 million Euros. From Berlin, Germany, we are now taking our experiment to the international stage. In light of current technological disruptions we want to know what the tech world thinks about basic income – and start a conversation.

Can I donate only via PayPal?

You can use Paypal, Bitcoin or, if you are attending #websummit in Lisbon, you can come to our stand at the Beta startup exhibition space. There we can also process donations by card or in cash.

Our Bitcoin wallet address is 1LKAoq694ekJApBMnEmSpsphbMAEosYgni

How can I participate in the raffle?

When you tweet about #BasicIncomeChallenge you will automatically receive a raffle code. You can check it here by entering your twitter handle:

Is the raffle only for people from the tech world?

No, every human can take part. It’s an unconditional basic income.

How do you raffle out the basic income?

Every participant receives a unique raffle code. We will hold the raffle on Thursday, November 9th at MEO Arena, Lisbon and use our wheel of furtune to determine the winning code. The raffle will be shown and recorded via a livestream. We will share the link shortly before the raffle on this website and our Twitter account @meinbge.

How will I know that I’ve won?

We will contact you directly via Twitter. Also: we will live stream the raffle and publish a recording of it.

What if the crowdfunding is not successful?

In case we can’t raise a full basic income until Thursday, November 9th, 2017 we will use the money which has been donated in another way to advance the idea of basic income.

How can I get (and stay) in touch?

You can contact us via email at support@mein-grundeinkommen.de, Twitter @meinbge and subscribe to our newsletter or join our mailing list.

What if an organisation’s account wins the basic income?

Organisations that tweet about #BasicIncomeChallenge will automatically participate in our raffle. If they win we will let them decide who to give the basic income to.
