Five-Digit Milestones

Nine action-packed months after our incubator's official launch, we’ve finally hit the coveted 5-figure mark in terms of followers! We’re incredibly grateful to all our supporters, members, engagers, and all who contribute to our activities and projects. We caught the final moments in the 4-digit level, creeping into the long-awaited 10,000.


More than anything, hitting this mark reminds us of how lucky we are to have the support of such an amazing Steem-powered community. We had no idea or expectation that our activity and projects would grow to this point and we’re very grateful to have such a level of engagement and enthusiasm from everyone. We’ll strive to become a more contributive resource and work towards a future where Steem is even more impactful.

This all being said, if you have any ideas, questions, or criticisms of how we can improve to bring the biggest empowering impact to the Steemit community, we’re all ears. We’re constantly looking for ways to gamify our various engagement activities and resonate with new and experienced users alike.

About our Incubator

@sndbox is an incubator that leverages the Steem blockchain to empower creatives and communities worldwide. Its membership program trains diverse professionals to integrate emerging technologies and establish impactful projects. We use Steemit as a platform to recruit, coach and empower creative blockchain entrepreneurs across 20 countries and over a dozen languages.

  • We Recruit : Onboard super talented creatives and entrepreneurs who are entirely new to Steemit and cryptocurrency as a whole.
  • Coach : Over time, we’ll help these minnows become dolphins. Sndbox will reward strong content and provide supportive feedback. Coaching is critical to retain talented Steemit contributors and help them engage their audience.
  • Empower : Our team is developing an incubator that creatives can harness to empower their craft both professionally and financially. We believe that interdisciplinary practice paired with emerging technology can revolutionize growth and independence for the 21st century professional.
