Yusaku Maezawa's Series of Tweets

Basic Income is a mechanism by which the government pays a fixed amount to the citizens every month.This campaign may be a reference for the government to consider basic income and any benefits and subsidies. While discussions and experiments on basic income are being conducted around the world, some experimental results should be needed here in Japan as well.

In the current economic situation, living environment, work environment, home environment, etc., I learned again that there are many people who are stuck in difficulty, unable to take new challenges, and helplessly. If those people get a "start" of 1 million yen (Rs 64 crore approx)... For example, if you use a favorite job for a job change job. If you use it for study, lessons and experiences that will increase your income. Use it to advertise your daily activities and work to raise your profile

This is not the first time that Yusaku announced his give away. Earlier in 2018, he gave away 100 million yen ($917,000) among 100 of his Twitter followers. Yusaku has a total of 6.9 million followers till date.
