This Week in the Sndbox
Welcome to the 5th State of the Sndbox newsletter! So far this week, we’ve begun instituting a weekly curation post every Monday that features all Sndbox and Steemit posts that we’ve voted on recently. Our goal is to build an ongoing resource of impactful posts, accounts, and initiatives on Steemit. You can see the most recent Upvotes of the Week here.
Earlier last week, we wrote about the Steemit Wallet - breaking down the basics of STEEM, STEEM Power and Steem Dollars. It was by far our most successful and most-viewed post to date! Our team will continue to write posts (like this one) that help newbies gain a stronger understanding of the platform. Read more here.
Yesterday, we continued our Toolkit series - this time focusing on how Upvoting and the Rewards Pool functions. What an upvote does can be a confusing topic and we try to break down the essentials here.
Cultivating Community through Workshops
This past week we hosted our first Steemit + Sndbox workshop! We wanted to create a more social environment where newcomers can not only learn about Steemit, but also have an outlet to specifically interact with other creative professionals and organizations. We intend to integrate Meetups to be the socially creative foundation for our incubator. As always, our main mission is to integrate Steemit productively into existing and emerging professional practices. The Meetup and in-person events helps us build trust with those who are new to and still unsure of the technologies that could revolutionize their fields.
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.

What to Look Out For This Week
Tomorrow, we’ll be announcing an exciting new facet to Sndbox’s work. We don’t want to ruin the surprise but it will be a new strategy for effective Steemit growth and public education. Stay tuned!
On Friday we’ll be doing the first of our bi-monthly Master Toolkits. We’ll compile most of our previous posts and organize them so that new users can continuously reference our tutorial, introduction, and event-based content.
