China becomes one of the first countries to successfully implement provisional Universal Basic Income for "most" of its citizens.
The UBI program is funded primarily through taxation of the portion of business revenue generated through industrial, commercial or agricultural automation. UBI funds pass through managed investment accounts to boost capital growth, and are released to citizens at term, with a lead-in of 20 years. Initial lead-in time starts in the 2030's, and the first continuous UBI payments become available to the public in the 2050's.
UBI is distributed to citizens proportionally, as a function of both social credit score and the degree to which employment prospects are impacted by automation.
