This Week in the Sndbox

Welcome to the 59th State of the Sndbox newsletter!

This past week, we were amazed with the impactful entries on the "your-own-SMT" weekly question. For this week's question, we asked you how to tweet the blockchain in 1 sentence. Moreover, we introduced more interesting members of our 2nd cohort!

Recent Reminders + Announcements

The blockchain in a tiny nutshell.

We start our week with a question designed to challenge and explore new ways of engaging the Steem blockchain.

The #BlockPitch Challenge encourages all Steemians come up with their best blockchain pitch in no less than one 280 char tweet. Get ready to bring your unrivaled Steem blockchain pitch to the Twitterverse!

Time to squeeze out those creative juices! Check out the guidelines and post your entries here.

What would your Smart Media look like?

If you had your own cryptocurrency on the Steem Blockchain, how will people use it?

The results of last week's weekly question, brought to you by @utopian-io and @sndbox, had everyone brainstorming how SMTs can change the world and positively impact how architects, hiphop artists, authors, and naturopaths collaborate, interact, get rewarded, and share ideas.

We put these inspired contributions by @critday, @hhtb, @raj808, and @mountainjewel on the stage. Check out the full post here.

Thank you for your State of the Sndbox reporting and contribution @luvabi!

This contribution has been curated.

This week, as every week, the @sndbox blog brought us the most interesting projects and presentations. I particularly liked the stories and projects of @maxiemoses-eu. and @dedicatedguy. Maxi exposes his love for architecture and his project to make architecture and blockchain a perfect couple. His story is very inspiring. Similarly, I liked the text of @dedicatedguy, Gabriel, Venezuelan like me, who told us about bolivars and cryptomedas. Excellent and motivating both!
Watch out: there's a mistake in the publication!
By the way, at the time of opening the @dedicatedguy link, Maxi's text appears and in Maxi's text, the link of one of those presented last week appears (@raj808 - My Journey on Steemit). All the others are fine. ;) Greetings.

The observation of @nancybriti is largely massive
I wish the mix up can be corrected.....
I know @sndbox are always on the cutting edge with their articles
.and this probably is an oversight


Just an honest link typo 🖖 I’m sure @dedicatedguy will forgive us ;)


Apologies for the mix-up!
I always check the code on draft, I'll make sure to recheck couple of times next time.

Hello @sndbox, it is a pleasure and an honor to always read them and I admire the great work they do to make the Blockchain of steem grow. I have a question, what can I do to belong to the sndbox incubator, or apply for a project in the same one that I currently carry out in steemit?


@sndbox has many weekly challenges that you can engage in, without the need of being in the sndbox incubator. That will be a good start for you.

Its great to have you @sndbox. This week, as every week, the @sndbox blog brought us the most interesting projects and presentations. I particularly liked the stories and projects of @maxiemoses-eu. Maxi exposes his love for architecture and his project to make architecture and blockchain.
