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!
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.

Final Week of The Crypto Renaissance!
This was the final week of the Crypto Renaissance Exhibition in Brooklyn. It was a whirlwind of a month, complete with activities, workshops, presentations and tours. We were thrilled with the turnout and amazing creativity that came out of the show. Our @fundition campaign for the exhibition wraps up on Monday, so stay tuned for a video and summary post about the project!
