This Week in the Sndbox

Welcome to the 39th State of the Sndbox newsletter! This past week, we gave you another live installment of Blockchain and Bourbon, announced our Litecoin Logo Art winners and announced our EOS Crypto Art challenge. It was also a big week of brainstorming crypto-analogies!

For a more thorough breakdown of what our members have been up to, be sure to go through our weekly Sndbox Selections and Project Updates that we publish each Monday.

Crypto Analogies

The @creativecrypto's Facebook page and Twitter account reaped positive engagement and has been attracting a new generation of blockchain users. We asked you to give us a fresh insight on explaining cryptocurrency to these new users through a befitting analogy. See the comments on this post to read the analogies comparing cryptocurrency to honey, a castle, a partner in life, and the universe, just to name a few.

Blockchain & Bourbon Weekly

Blockchain and Bourbon is our weekly webisode streamed LIVE on multiple social media apps such as Rize and Facebook. We gave you a quick recap and jumped in to discuss "Decentralized Monetization of Video Content." Watch out for the final edit on @dtube tomorrow!
Check out our last Blockchain and Bourbon post here and our recent livestream here.


Litecoin Logo Art Winners

We had a few thrilling surprises during the last competition. First, we had wide range of submissions in the likes of Monet, Warhol, Pop Art, and Doodle Art. Additionally, we got an exhilarating dose of publicity from the creator of LTC himself, Charlie Lee, and his affiliated Litecoin Foundation when they shared our tweet on their respective channels.

Cheers to @kyunga, @munadikiehl, @karmachela, @marty-arts, and @philipuyi for their amazing Litecoin logo art! Visit this post to see all the results.

EOS Logo Art Challenge

Our 5th Crypto Art Challenge focuses on EOS! As we gear up for the launch of @creativecrypto, we declared that all artists, graphic designers and craftspeople are invited to pick a famous artist or style and use it to interpret the EOS logo in their own inspired way. Follow our magazine @creativecrypto and stay tuned for updates on our launch.

Visit the Crypto Art Challenge Guidelines here. Deadline today, Wednesday, at 10pm EST.

Project Updates on Education, Marketing, Art + Empowerment

A short rundown of major Steem-powered projects by some of our cohort members included the #whisper Gallery by @mrblinddraw, @kr-marketing by @leesongyi and @leesol, @blockmountain by @djlethalskillz, @scuzzy and @playitforward, @phillyhistory community project, @urban-thinktank and The Musician's Guide by @heymattsokol.

We urge you to read about these meaningful projects by giving them some love on this post.


Be on the lookout for Blockchain-Powered content

Twice every month, we will serve up a compilation of inspiring content that has been shared on a DApp, simply called "Blockchain-Powered Content to Keep an Eye On." Here we have our top selections of articles on, videos on DLive, artwork on CreativeChain, streams from Rize, podcasts on DSound, and many more. We had a Steem Showcase featuring @dunsky and @art.visuals. We also have a @Creativechain Spotlight with the works of Artist Zero and Kitties for A Cause by the CryptoKitties team.

Comparing USD and Steem (Fiat vs. Crypto)

As a new resource, we've compared the utility and behavior of USD vs. Steem in a variety of situations in the effort to make it easier to bring on newcomers into the blockchain world. The simple comparison clearly outlines why many still packing cash should consider looking into this particular cryptocurrency a bit more.
