Empower Your Creativity

Hello everyone! Today, we're very excited to announce some big changes to Sndbox. This post outlines a handful of updates as we gear up for 2019, a big year for the Steem community and an even bigger year for this emerging industry. With Sndbox, we’re not just a fun community of crypto-curious artists, we’re a diverse team of innovators dedicated to building better blockchain resources and tools to equip creatives for the 21st century.

This past year we launched - The Creative Crypto Magazine - a beacon for the most artful and interesting blockchain initiatives, dApp showcases, and cryptoart that the internet has to offer. By way of the Magazine, we have interviewed, teamed up, and worked with the leading artists and companies in the cryptocurrency world and fostered Media Partnerships across New York City to push the conversation of crypto forward.

Despite the pace of the markets, our community has been growing by leaps and bounds. There is more demand than there has ever been to learn about cryptocurrency communities like Steem and we want @sndbox to become a premiere and more empowering entry point for the crypto-curious out there seeking a network to learn alongside.

Collaboration + Engagement

A big goal of ours is to act more openly and collaboratively with other dApps, guilds and communities as the ecosystem matures. Ultimately, our hope is that Sndbox can tap into Steem as a social glue between communities across the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Towards this goal [beginning December 1st] Sndbox will be retiring our cohort model in favor of pushing more resources towards curating weekly challenges, monthly themes and creative gigs. The Stewards of Sndbox will take on the responsibility of brainstorming and manually curating weekly challenges - similar to recent test cases - feedbackchain, myblock, antipost, smartmediafutures, blocksketch, dpoll, steemorigins and cryptodots.

What's New in the Sndbox?

These weekly brain-teasers are a great way to engage a community, orient new comers, and help Steemians discover one another by way of participation. Our team has been busy working on a new structure for Sndbox that will drive more attention, accessibility and awareness towards these activities. Here are some of our biggest updates coming next month -

  • NEW CHATROOM - beginning Dec. 1 - we're moving to Discord! Our team will be migrating from the depths of Slack into this sleek new emoji-happy forum. Here, our team will be better equipped to collaborate with others across Steem and the crypto world to brainstorm and develop engaging challenges. Anyone can join in our room, creatives welcome.

  • DISTRIBUTING CURATION - we've always curated manually. Now we're expanding those responsibilities to a network of nominated Stewards, providing an avenue for them to host weekly challenges and support the awareness of causes and events important to them.

  • VIP CHANNEL - winners of weekly challenges will be invited into our VIP channels (private). Here, VIP members will have access to pursue calls for commissions and creative gigs. VIP members will also be eligible to publish content through the @sndbox account in an effort to boost visibility of their project idea, community, or event. Authors will be rewarded through a @sndbox upvote which they can use on themselves or a post of their choice.

2019 and Beyond!

Our team first joined the Steem blockchain in July of 2016. We've been exploring and building ever since. We believe that there is a tremendous amount of value and collaborative potential embedded in this crypto-ecosystem. Looking ahead to 2019, we'll continue to push that envelope. Stay tuned for the new Discord chatroom opening December 1st! We can't wait.

See you at Steemfest!

I think these changes are really good moves. I like the incentives for really top notch engagement!

I love these shifts opening it into the wider community. I’m really happy to hear this as I definitely think sndbox acts as a glue— and we need that right now to keep coherency & fluency amidst so many new developments! I’m also happy it’s like an open door for me to still take part & learn, share, grow ✨🌷✨

@sndbox Team, First of all good to know that you are expanding the Communication and Engagement Methods and joining** Discord. And the great Initiative is Weekly challenges, and hope that these challenges will going to boost both Participation and Engagement Levels. I really want to wish an great and successful future for the whole SNDBOX Team.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed team. 🙂

Interesting. I also want my free weekly art giveaway, where I make portrait drawings for steemians to be promoted by @sndbox in the future. I had stopped due to low engagement. See samples below



These are gorgeous! I love the one upper right, maybe because of all the textures in his beard and background and suit.

Great post. I guess this will actually be the first time I will hear about this SNDBOX of a thing. If not that I am reading this post I may not. So I will also like to know more and more about this SNDBOX. Like how it works and how someone can participate and many more things also. I wish you more success on this project. I am a passionate writer so I guess it will be helpful for me if only I can know how it can be done or participate rather. Thanks
