This Week in the Sndbox


Welcome to the 48th State of the Sndbox newsletter!

This past week, we gave updates on The Crypto Renaissance Exhibition, announced winners of the Crypto Renaissance Design Competition, and gave some marketing teasers on our gallery display and pamphlet. We got hyped about over crypto-swag, helped artists start out on Musicoin, released the first installation of our weekly Creative Crypto Newsletter, and hosted our 13th Art & Design Challenge.

The Crypto Renaissance - A Steem Exhibition in NYC


The exhibition at the 1st Floor Gallery of 100 Bogart Street in Brooklyn will be open to all visitors starting on July 20, 7pm. In this public exhibit, everyone can freely learn about the Steem blockchain, the world of crypto, and immediately begin converging their creative work with the Steemit ecosystem. It's the prime opportunity to showcase the tools and resources built for creative professionals on the Steem blockchain and their integration in the practice and daily work of @sndbox members.


As we prepare for the event, we’ll be sharing mockups of our open source exhibition boards for Utopian, Fundition, Dtube and more Steem DApps. In the works are exhibition design materials for @dlive, @steepshot, and a number of key projects like @busy and @steempayco.

You can be part of our Exhibition and contribute to help fund the exhibit by being part of the "DONOR WALL" where Steemians can integrate their names into the gallery facade. Donate SBD in exchange for a customized portrait of your profile picture and your Steem Username. Check out the full post for more details.

Be sure to save the date and follow our social-media pages for announcements and blurbs about the event opening.

The Crypto Renaissance - Utopian and Fundition Mockup

The exhibition will feature large scale boards that document Steem and Sndbox community projects and apps active across the blockchain. An interactive centerpiece, the DAPP Tower, will feature Steem apps that visitors can browse real time.

In this post, we feature our Utopian-io Poster for the DAPP Tower that summarizes this open source project on the Steem blockchain.

In this post, we feature our Fundition Poster for the DAPP Tower that tells us more about this crypto-powered crowdfunding application and supportive community called Fundition.

Steem Quick-Start Pamphlet


The upcoming Crypto Renaissance exhibition will showcase the Steem blockchain and its decentralized applications. An informative Exhibition Pamphlet will be in circulation during the exhibition, containing exhibition details and an introduction to the Steem blockchain. With this post, we're asking YOU for your favorite links, resources, infographics and descriptions of all things Steem that will comprise the contents of the Exhibition Pamphlet.

Surveying and 3D-Modeling the Gallery


@exhibition is a community account to be used for events, galleries, workshops, marketing, presentations, and meetups.

We are getting preparations under way as we get ready to visualize the gallery area and plan out the components of the exhibition. The exciting placement of the tower that showcases the Sndbox symbol is seen in 3D model standing high at 6'-9' and will provide information from various subjects on each side of the wall with potentially interactive iPads in front. We anticipate lots of exposure since the building facade is mostly glass opening up the exhibition space to the public.

The Crypto Renaissance Poster Winners

Last week, we announced a Steem-powered Design Competition for our first gallery exhibit poster and collateral that will revolve around power of Steem's decentralized applications and the experiences of our first cohort while touching point on their empowered Sndbox projects. Three winning posters were chosen to represent and promote the exhibit.

@aaronhong's creative use of the Fibonacci sequence is a crucial component to the exhibition as it takes first place and will be used on publicity and marketing collateral. In 2nd and 3rd place are @happyksu with an energetic entry and @albert0davila with a 21st century rendition respectively.

We also loved @johnbird's fantastic composition, @miguelguacamaya2's mathematically inclined composition, @ceheiberg's dynamic combination of elements, @mbell's contemporary creation, and @artgirl's feel-good, family friendly piece.

CryptoRenaissance Art & Design Challenge


The Crypto Renaissance full-scale exhibition will be interactive to better educate the New York public about the Steem blockchain. Professional graphics and step-by-step explanations will be used. Sndbox projects and the empowerment of our incubator members within the Steem ecosystem will be highlighted.

The 13th Crypto Art & Design Challenge will help to promote and broadcast the Crypto Renaissance exhibition both on and offline! This time, the challenge is for artists and creatives to transform the Crypto Renaissance text in the likes of Picasso, Van Gogh, David Hockney, Michelangelo or any style that suits this huge event.

Musicoin Beginner’s Tutorial


The music world has always been challenging for musicians to be fairly paid for their content creation in the pool of a 15 billion dollar industry. This tutorial by @djlethalskillz, global music artist and ambassador for Musicoin, shows musicians how easy it is to start leveraging this blockchain-powered platform that connects music listeners and fans to free music streaming. On this platform, artists are instantly paid every time one of their musical contributions are played via a cryptocurrency called Musicoin.

Great news nice post

I'm really interested in keeping tabs on the @sndbox community. I am interested in cryptos, blocks and nodes.
Thanks for the updates.

@creativecrypto seems to focus on the arts a lot. Is the creativity about arts alone?

Oh looks like I can still submit an entry to the 13th design challenge. Oh yeah!
