This Week in the Sndbox

Welcome to the 11th State of the Sndbox newsletter! So far this week, we’ve published an updated Master Toolkit with our latest event and resource posts. To build upon our most useful resource posts, we’ve also published a compilation of all of our post translations done by the incredible international Steemit community.

For a more thorough breakdown of what our members have been up to, be sure to go through our weekly Upvotes of the Week post that we publish each Monday.

Steem-Powered Emoji Contest

This past Friday, we announced another fun contest to transform Steemit celebrities / mainstays into vibrant emojis! Over the past year of being on Steemit, we’ve met and interacted with so many wonderful characters on the platform and we wanted to transplant their charisma into our chats on Twitch, Discord, Slack, etc.

If you’d like to submit your renditions for a possible upvote prize, check out the rubric here.

Effectively Sharing Steemit Content on Social-Media

Sndbox and its members have been experimenting with ways to disseminate Steemit-based information with the rest of the world. We encourage other Steemians to help develop these strategies and you can read on our progress here and follow our Twitter account here.


Toolkit: How to Power Up

Curious what do with your latest Steem Dollars? Consider powering it up! Our latest toolkit goes into detail of what powering up means, the pros and cons, and the difference in status. Read the full post here.


Each week we’ll introduce the newest @sndbox members and share updates on their work. Be sure to give each of these new Steemians a warm welcome! Follow their profiles for more on their respective interests and practices.

Wow all the things you are doing are great! I really like the way you share info and resources, and the amazing initiatives you have.

I just finished the translation to spanish of one of your posts, I will contact @voronoi for the editing of the images and as soon as that is ready I will share the completed post here :D

Oh wow amazing @angelgarz great effort Man! desspereatly waiting to see your and @voronoi amazing work! 😃

wow why did you have to create a fake sweetsssj account with a name so similar to sweetsssj its obvious that your up to no good lol JUST like that account named @papa-peper and @bittreex which both sound WAAAY to much like teh AXCTUAL papa-pepper and Bittrex haha its weird how many strange fake steemit aciounts pop up ytrying to have phising accounts that i guess trick peopel into upvoting them thinng they are a whale?? i dunn what they feel theyre gonan acomplish with those weird usernames ythat sound way too close to a whales real name lol its funny! Peopel are so depserate to make money nefarious ways whe all they have to do is make decent blogs and just post everyday and get engaged with teh community and they can amke money the normal honst way!!!

Very pro

Great job :)

Looks like I'll be join the community very soon.

yes you need to be creating craiglist as to attract peopel to invest in steemit, make ads saying u can help people make money writing, put up a Job ad for a writer and hire someone by simply signing them up to steemit!

create local steemit clubs in your city! before you know it you will be the local leader of your own steemit organization! And soonyou will be making so muchmoney from your computer that you will look like this!

Thank you for the encouragement. I'll make you one of my partner's, based on your business plan :)

Hey, @Sndbox Thanks man for the great information you are just amazing keep up the same good work bruh hopefully get amazing state of the sandbox new post again! Upvoted 🖒

Thanks mam

Thanks for your support!

Upvoted and also resteemed :]

Look what you made me post! oh man taylor swift it would be so awesome to actually have tay tay on here !

I never used to like tay tay but now i really almost have a crush on her and have this fantasy that i could actually get with her one day lol

Wow all the things you are doing are great! inspire for me..

Great post my frends @sndbox , i like your post
Please you are visit my blog

Programs that build other people up sure gets my attention

ahh yes these will be the new frontier of humanity, believing in our fellow humans, giving each other a chance to make money online! create spaces to allow each other to succeed without deadlines or bosses or "jobs" and without ever getting "fired" or "hired" and it's just beautifuL! steemit is a decentralized autonomous organization, one of the first decentralized horizontal corporation! a decentralize company! and were all getting paid! were all stake hokders!

heres an upvote, i believe you shoudl check out my Steemuit Africa friends @tj4real and @mcsamm and u will be welcomed intoa growing african steemit community wherei try to pair you gusy up with Western Whales untill TJ or mcsamm can have enough SOPtobecome their own Whale for West African Coast where we havea large concentration of african steemit users....This will help Africa become SELF SUFFICIENT when it comes to steemit! hen africanshavetheor own whales to get upvoted from, and when africans hold their own large portions of steem, we will see whole economies being upifted!

Imagine if every one of the milliosn of poor people in Lagos for example all boiught just 1 bitcoin or even half of 1 bitcoin back when they were only $1 in 2009 2010, now imagine they hld onto that untill today, and imagine those millions of africans would would all now have a savings account for themselves with $2000 (half a btc ) to $5000 (full BTC) and the same will happen with steem! Steem is so cheap around $1 but will be $10 ytghen 4100- then 41000 andbeyond one day in nextfew years! and when that happens all the people in dveeloping nations, especialy Africa, will feel the changes the most! You will all wake up with a large savings account Nest Egg to alleviate stress and help you all have a brighter future, you will save so much wealth your grandchildren will still be wealthy!

let us pray for the future of Africa, let is pray that we can break the 10% internet connection levels and get Africa closer to 50% and then 100% internet usage! we need to get closer to 90% inetrnet usage in developiug nations, it will help SO much to bring smartphones to africa,

i am going to apply for a grant from the US federal government and work with US embassy to Ghana in Accra to get funding to buy Thousands of cheap Android smartphones! Once we get smartphones (plus battery packs solar charger $10 battery USB pack so we can then also pay for 1 month of prepaid internet usage for people to have 1 phone 1 solr charger battery and 1 month of free wifi/mobile data, so we can allow the poor to have an entioe kit with everything they need to get online!

Hmmm...You seem like you know what you are doing here. Looking forward to more great posts and learnings!!
