Sndbox is a Steemit incubator for creatives and communities. We utilize the STEEM blockchain to empower impactful projects worldwide.
Growth through Nominations
All new @sndbox fellows will join through a nomination process. Current fellows can nominate up to 2 new Steemians per month. This nomination strategy is designed to achieve the following goals :
Healthy Community Growth. - We want new fellows to join by building relationships first. Sndbox is both a program and a community guild. Our goal is to create an empowering network that motivates mentorship, conversation and collaboration.
Strong Vetted Content. - This organic referral process will be a filter to insure strong quality content and community stewardship. Nominations can also radically reduce the presence of plagiarism on Steemit. Sndbox fellows represent two dozen countries all over the world and as many languages. Having trusted eyes and ears will support healthy growth in new communities.
The @sndbox team gathers and reviews nominations on a monthly basis. New fellows are introduced within the first week of each month.

*If you earn less than 60 SBD, that's okay! We will never charge you more than you've earned. Fellows can also lower their fee by nominating new Steemians. Each approved nomination will be rewarded with 20 SBD (up to 40 SBD or two nominations per month.) This incentivizes the growth of the incubator network and the growth of Steemit as a whole!
Where will the Fellow Fees go?
50% of SBD received through fellows will be converted to STEEM power to help grow the account. The other 50% of these fees will go towards support costs of maintaining the incubator including programming and projects throughout the year. This will include offline programs in New York City through our official Meetup Channel, Steemit workshops and community projects like STEEM Park.
Who can be nominated?
Sndbox is a Steemit incubator that empowers impactful and creative projects worldwide. Our goal is to create a supportive environment where an artist, architect, musician, curator, educator, entrepreneur, non-profit, or community organizer can explore, innovate and play all while being rewarded for sharing their craft. (We ask Sndbox Fellows to nominate individuals or organizations that align and improve upon our creative-impact mission.)
A “Sndbox Fellow” can be :
|NEWCOMER||Reputation Score 25 - 59|
- An existing / prospective Steemit user with creative or community content in mind
- A project-based account created collaboratively by multiple Steemit users
- A community leader or organizer who is looking for support in establishing a Sndcastle (Steemit Accelerator) in their local area. (For prospective Sndcastle initiatives, blog about your idea or showcase the meetups / workshops that you're already hosting! This makes it easier for us to learn more about the great work that you're doing and how we can best support you.)
|EXPERIENCED||Reputation Score 60 +|
- If you are a Steemian with substantial experience on the platform (i.e. reputation score greater than 60), we encourage you to submit specific ideas for a project, community initiative or long-term endeavor.
If you’re interested in becoming a @sndbox fellow, we recommend engaging with existing fellows in their posts as well as reaching out to Sndcastle Projects in your region. If they believe that your work and ambition are aligned with the @sndbox initiative, they can nominate you into the network.
If you would like to submit a form and be considered independent from a nomination, you can submit your information and ideas at www.sndbox.co/contact. We maintain a waiting list that we review at the end of each month. NOTE: Priority for consideration will be given to nominations.
Do not leave comments on members’ posts similar to this - “Please look at my account, @_____”. Begin a conversation. Explain what you do and why it would be beneficial to both you and Sndbox if you joined the community.
Thank you to the Steemit community for the incredible support and engagement around Sndbox!
