Master Toolkit: Steemit Resource Guide [Illustrated Update]

in toolkit •  last month


Sndbox’s Master Toolkit is a compiled resource of previous tutorial posts created to get newcomers more familiar with the Steemit platform as well as the growth and development of the Sndbox incubator.

Sndbox and Creative Impact

@sndbox is an incubator that leverages the Steem blockchain to empower creatives and communities worldwide. Its membership program trains diverse professionals to integrate emerging technologies and establish impactful projects. We use Steemit as a platform to recruit, coach and empower creative blockchain entrepreneurs across 20 countries and over a dozen languages.

  • We Recruit : Onboard super talented creatives and entrepreneurs who are entirely new to Steemit and cryptocurrency as a whole.
  • Coach : Over time, we’ll help these minnows become dolphins. Sndbox will reward strong content and provide supportive feedback. Coaching is critical to retain talented Steemit contributors and help them engage their audience.
  • Empower : Our team is developing an incubator that creatives can harness to empower their craft both professionally and financially. We believe that interdisciplinary practice paired with emerging technology can revolutionize growth and independence for the 21st century professional.

If you're interested in learning more - take a look at our incubator schedule, here. Our program rotates twice each year (see below). Also, take a look at our very first introduction post to learn more about our mission. If you'd like to learn more about "incubators" make sure to take a look at this article.

If you're interested in joining our community, stay tuned for the next Cohort opening up in July. (We'll announce application FAQ's later this Spring.) Until then, please make sure to check out our page @sndbox for weekly creative contests where all participants are rewarded through upvotes and creative showcases. Additionally, we recently delegated 30,000 Steem Power to @sndbox-alpha, a community run curation initiative that supports rotating themes and Steemit-wide authors.

Yesterday, in our Discord, @shortcut was describing his experience with @sndbox and we were asking how we could find a way to create points of contacts among us, at @slothicorn, and your spectacular project! :) This post clarifies quite a lot, I'll share it in our Discord right now! Hope to get in touch soon, ciao!


Oh fantastic @venalbe :D We made this post just for that reason! (As a one-stop-shop where questions can get answered.) Thanks for spreading the word. We're also building out an updated website that formalizes all of this a but further (with FAQ's) and highlights the Steem resources we've made in a navigable way.

Thanks for your support. Looking forward to staying in touch with the @slothicorn squad :)


Can I ask why you did not upvote @venalbe, obviously you were appreciative of his or her post. It is a question I wonder about all the time. It seems counter to your whole message. I'm sure I could be missing something. Please tell me.


@windrockswater, I didn't write a comment for an upvote but for getting in touch with a community. Networking is the power of blockchain, not upvoting :) but thanks for having thought about it! :)


Then what is the point of upvoting comments?


And what is a point anyways, profound questions are asked here :)


It's odd to not upvote a post you find useful, particularly as upvoting costs you nothing but VP.

I will associate @slothicorn with this, now. Something to think about while you're networking.


Hi guys, let me reply here. Most of the time community accounts such as slothicorn or utopian or sndbox have missions and rules and fund/upvote accordingly. Upvoting any comments in my personal opinion, if you are a community account, will trigger only a waterfall of spammers commenting randomly just to get few bucks out of it. It’s difficult to find real value, for me, in comments, posts are different of course, and I find plenty of value in steemit, daily. I upvote comments, with my SP to reward my followers engagement, let’s say that’s my personal mission within my small network. Hope it clarifies and closes the thread :) I’ll write a post about it so we can bring the discussion over there! Thanks everyone


Just want to say thanks for all who have sincerely replied to this dialogue. For me I am so involved in Steemit as a social media. A conversation, a dialogue, a learning and entertaining experience. The monetary element is a very real part of it obviously. The nice post comments are not worthy of upvote or reply. I personally go to my replies first thing, and upvote every reply I receive as long as it has merit whether it disagrees with mine or not. I think we are all on the same page, networking to me is sharing ideas. Your responses are very much respected and appreciated.

Thanks for sharing this @sndbox! There are some great resources available here for beginners and experienced users alike. Oh, by the way, I think that your new logo is fantastic!

I am currently starting my own project which I am calling the Steemit Success Initiative, which has two primary aims: to bring more people to Steemit, and to increase the amount of daily active users by helping beginners to grow their account and post great content. This is how we will implement it:

  1. We run advertising campaigns for Steemit that are done professionally, to bring in more users.

  2. We provide a guide for all Steemit beginners on How To succeed on Steemit (putting this together by talking to many successful Steemians about how they became successful).

  3. Provide a manual curation service for 5-10 undervalued posts per day

  4. Provide a bank of free graphics for all members of our incubator, and once a month give 1-2 Steemians access to a graphic designer for free. I already have a Graphic designer on board for this.

The project will also involve in person workshops, talks and more, but these will happen further down the line. Your incubator has been a real inspiration to me to get this started, as I think it is an excellent initiative, and I think there is room on Steemit for a few incubators, as there are so many new users always coming to the platform.

I would really appreciate any support that you can give for the project! I am currently trying to build delegated SP for the project and get feedback from more experienced users, so I would really appreciate it.

Thanks again for sharing this really helpful tutorial!


Thanks for sharing your empowering initiative @lukebrn! :) And for your support!


No problem! I would really appreciate any feedback you have on developing it further.

I put your logo sndbox with the title "steemit change the oral tradition to writing", and the next posting

I thought I understood Steemit, but looks like I still have more to learn. I really like your graphics, and I was wondering who/what program do you use to create these? So far I get mine off free banks, but yours looks so much better :)

The work you are doing in supporting the growth of steemit is amazing!

Hoping to read more about the application FAQ’s you mentioned in the post since this initiative rocks and I would love to one day be part of it.

Ps: don’t you guys have your own witness? I believe you could easily set up your own witness and receive a lot of support for it.

Very informative.. really very helpful for beginners

Hello there,

Do you have a Discord presence?


Soy un bebe en esto y voy a usar su guía para crecer. Gracias por apoyar a lo que iniciamos.

This is a very comprehensive and awesome compilation of resources for newbies thus far. Excellent!

@sndbox I'm a portrait photographer and just heard about you guys. I have some cool projects in the works and look forward to sharing them with of them is a show I'm pitching to Netflix on Crypto holiday-in-st-pete-beach--lightenupandshoot_6090573209_o.jpg

@sndbox, fantastic resource, I just found out about you. I make a repost in my blog so as not to lose the value found. Thank you.

Its a really stunning resource, interesting community you have here. Reading these articles now and getting more knowledge ...Woww !!
thaaanks a lot !!

This is like finding a treasure box. Whoa!

What an amazing resource. Thank you for this!

I've just found this. Thank you for taking the time to make this! This is the perfect go-to guide for newbies to get all their questions answered. I've only been on the platform for around 6 weeks so this is a really helpful way to get a lot of questions answered. Keep up the awesome work! :-)


The NoBellSteemPrize (I'm pretty sure that's an original, but I can't verify that) goes to the @sndbox or rather the author/s of this fantastic series of articles. This was invaluable to me in my annoying struggle to get up to speed in this revolutionary community.
In fact now that I'm a little bit more enlightened, I wish this article was only seconds old so my up votes and/or comments could still generate more love for the creators/authors.
Please keep up the amazing work.
