Crypto Art & Design Challenge - Fundition

We just wrapped up our crypto art and design challenge on Friday, stay tuned for the results!

This weekly challenge is for artists, graphic designers and creatives to select a famous artist or style and in that art form, re-imagine the logo of Steem DApp, @fundition, in the most creative way possible. The results were overwhelming and incredibly creative! Our team will be sharing the winners with you very soon.

Sndbox Asks - Who are your Blockchain Neighbors?

We start our week with a question designed to challenge and explore new ways of engaging the Steem blockchain.

The #myblock challenge ignites one's curiosity about how the Steem blockchain organizes clusters of data and records the activities by all Steemians. Explore the chain of 25 million blocks by digging into the data that makes up a post, the witness that minted the block it was on, and the neighbors or other posts by other Steemians that are residing in the same block. You can see it for yourself and watch the blockchain action real time on steemdb!

This #myblock challenge for the curious Steemian is a fun way to engage and expand your Steemit community, read more on how to take part, here.

The Crypto Renaissance Exhibition - Blockchain Art Workshop Recap

The Crypto Renaissance Exhibition that ran from July 20 up until August 15 is a free and public exhibition at the 1st Floor Gallery of 100 Bogart Street in Brooklyn. The exhibition welcomed New Yorkers and others to learn about the Steem blockchain, the world of crypto, and immediately begin converging their creative work with the Steem ecosystem.

For the entire course of the exhibition, we held weekly workshops on everything about the Steem Blockchain. Last Saturday, New Yorkers met with @dadanyc to learn more about their blockchain journey and their growing Steemit community as well. Afterwards, gallery visitors flexed their creative muscles with an interactive art workshop.

Check out the stream of creativity during the workshop in this post.

Increasing Community Exposure

Beginning this week Sndboxers will be tasked with 1 article per month (published via @sndbox) in response to our 4-month syllabus. These articles will be a strategy for incubatees to broadcast their ideas, develop projects, call for participation and to build new audiences. We believe that this new approach will better engage both incubatees and the projects that they are a part of.

They have made a very good weekly summary! But remember that they have already begun with the launch of the biography and work of some members, such as @twotoedsloth, with their work to reunite the two cores and the urban planner @manouche. You're both doing an excellent job! Let the successes continue!


You are intelligent too

Keep up the good work Box Gang!
