Sndbox Project Updates are recaps of major Steem-powered project developments led by current cohort members. Sndbox projects are specifically designed and executed to broaden the impact and presence of creative and community work within the Steem ecosystem.
Hello Steemit! We are excited to share a new "Project Series" to update you all on what has been happening behind the scenes of the Sndbox incubator. There are dozens of projects developing right now and we thought this ongoing series would be a great way for you all to discover and engage them! Today, we're showcasing a handful of creative, community-driven, educational and impactful projects using the Steem blockchain as a catalyst for real change. Here they are:
@kr-marketing is a Korean community project led by @leesongyi and @leesol. Their team reinvents blockchain news and crypto-information into beautiful and easy to understand illustrations. Afterwards, these graphics are shared throughout social media and off-line as prints. Even if you don't understand Korean, their work is absolutely worth exploring!
Give them a follow, and explore their latest encyclopedia update, here.
@blockmountain is a creative group led by @djlethalskillz, @scuzzy and @playitforward. This trio is in the process of developing Steemit's first community powered music album. The Block Mountain group is assembling a collective of artists with talents spread across all different mediums through their weekly challenges and competitions. Make sure to explore their weekly updates and open calls for artists, performers and creatives of all kinds.
Join in on the collaboration, here.
@phillyhistory is a graduate-level history seminar at Temple University. Each of the students (below) are currently using Steemit to blog, document and share their ongoing research for the seminar. A community account, led by [@phillyhistory] is being used to compile student research, offer feedback, share with the wider community and accrue funding to support non-profit grants of local Philadelphia institutions.
@hourofhistory, @dduquette, @engledd, @jfeagan, @cheider, @charliehersh, @tmaust, @chelseareed, @johnesmithiii, @gvgktang, @yingchen, @connellgregg, @xiaonanli, @peartree4, @landy-yinan, @phillyhistory, and @phillyculture.
We're nearing the end of the spring semester, and so far the students have accumulated over 3,000 Steem! They're reaching out to non-profits now and beginning an onboarding and recipient selection process. Contribute your thoughts and engage, here.
@urban-thinktank is a research and development studio out of the ETH Zurich (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule/ Swiss Federal Institute of Technology). The team behind their flagship project Empower Housing has teamed up with @sndbox to raise awareness and Steem-power funds for new housing prototype strategy and community planning in South Africa. U-TT will use all cryptocurrency raised to fund ongoing development of housing in Khayelitsha, South Africa. Their approach to architecture and community development is inspiring, make sure to give them a warm hello and support their empowering work!
