The Crypto Renaissance - Exhibition in NYC [Grand Opening!]

in #utopian-io5 years ago (edited)

Opening Night!

Last night we opened The Crypto Renaissance exhibition in Brooklyn! The event was entirely free and open to the public in an effort to drive more visibility towards cryptocurrency in the creative world today. Steem was front and center. Throughout the space we showcased dozens of Steem-powered projects that have come out of our incubator, @sndbox. The center of the floor featured a 9'-0" tall Steem DApp tower installation, which included huge supporters of this exhibition; @fundition and @utopian-io. A big thank you to those two amazing communities who have helped make this exhibition a reality. More awesome apps included @dtube, @dlive, @steemitblog (of course), @esteemapp, @busy, @dsound, and @steempress.

We even had an interactive selfie station that linked to @steepshot! The exhibition will continue to be free and open to the public over the next few weeks (through August 15th). Visitors will have unrestricted access to the @exhibition account to explore the Steem blockchain and learn more about all the tools and resources built on top of it.

The turnout and energy all night was incredible! A mix of Steemians, crypto-newbies and leaders across the blockchain landscape in New York City. Thank you to all who came from Brooklyn and Beyond to make this event happen. Here are just a few preliminary snapshots of the show:












Yes, @dougkarr (author of Dwelling) was the culprit behind Steepshot being overloaded!

What an amazing time and a fantastic show!! Thanks again so much for inviting @opheliafu and I to be a part of it!!!

Last night was a blast. Thank you and @opheliafu for being part of it! The Dwelling room was amazing and kickstarted so many great conversations last night. You both really brought the blockchain to life! We're looking forward to your workshop next weekend :D

Counting down the days until I jump on that flight!

Place looks top notch, awesome job with everything here @sndbox @voronoi.

Thank you so much for your support @thejohalfiles! We're looking to make a splash with Steem in Brooklyn. There is a huge number of blockchain projects in the neighborhood and some big players looking to learn more about social DApps that can fuel them. Thanks again for your generosity and support of this exhibition!

hi uboud me ?

Awesome work guys! First of all: The design is just amazing and looks really professional, well done! And thank you for putting in the effort to promote Steem and educate people on what the blockchain has to offer, including all of the great DApps we have running here. Extra thank you for adding SteemPress to the mix!

Please let me know if there is any information or designs that you have for any of the other DApps which let you inform the visitors of what the DApp is doing that you are missing for SteemPress so that I can help you get that.

This is amazing! I was very happy to be a sponsor to this exhibition and hope to see more of these initiatives on Steemit <3 Let's take on the world!

Thank you so much for your generosity and support @sjennon! :D

(Still working on your illustration and should have that up on the website very soon.)

(I'm pumped!)

Good luck with the Exhibition. Shared on twitter to help promote #Steemit and #Sndbox. Stephen

Well done! :)

Looks fantastic - what a great way to promote the Steem Blockchain and all the various Dapps. It's an awesome display of great teamwork and you have certainly achieved high quality. If you can tag in #promo-steem it would help demonstrate the high bar you have set on a promotional /educational exhibition. It will be inspirational for our community of Steemit promoters to see this post on the tag.

AND on the plus side if you get three upvotes from community approved Steem Ambassadors and use the promo-steem tag you can an upvote from the @steem-ambassador account which has nearly 50,000 Steem Power. [Steem-Ambassadors curate for high quality posts about promoting STEEM and Steemit].

Awesome job gus! Love the exhibition idea! We should get promo steemians all over doing this!

Thank you guys! Just edited :)

We’ll make sure to use the tag more often as we host events / workshops over the next few weeks. Thank you for cultivating such a great ambassador program and a forum to spread the word!

Great to hear!! We hope that our decentralized curation guild run by ambassadors who have a clear track record of supporting the community and who have been elected in by the community can help properly reward efforts such as these!

Great news - many thanks for the support. We have a passionate group of Community Approved Ambassadors who curate the #promo-steem tag and will no doubt identify your posts as high quality. All the very best wishes for the rest of the exhibition/workshops and events.

Looked like a good showing of people on the opening night. Hopefully, a few more wanderers will see this exhibition over the weekend! 😊

Awesome idea! Big respect for the organizing this event!
I hope that you plan to visit other cities as well? 😉

These are the times when you wish apparition was a real thing.

Thanks for the generous shout-outs. It was actually the least I could do.


I commend the onerous effort that is invested into this to make it a success. It is no doubt this gonna result in massive exposure for steem blockchain and its associated applications. I salute and appreciate you guys.

Gonna follow @exhibition right away. Post resteemed.

Wish I was closer! I would totally go check out. The steepshot selfie looks fun. I was wondering at first why so many selfies in your previous post LOLOL Enjoy you all ❤ ❤ ❤

I wonder how you deal with criticism on gigs like that? Or is there none, as usual? That's the problem - the lack of critical thinking. Makes people invest in such garbage as STEEM is.

Awesome! I just really want to have more of this in other regions, so we can promote the Steem blockchain outside the community. Hope to see an exhibition here in Asia in the near future. Here in Singapore :)

Kudos! @sndbox 🍻

Excellent project to showcase the power of steem. I am impressed with yr energy and creativity

Thank you very much friend. You gave me an opportunity to participate in this exhibition indirectly by this post. Thank you again.

Thank for sharing this post @sndbox sir..

@sndbox wow !!!! What a fantastic show this has been.. i am sure you all would have enjoyed it.

wow it's a very nice and exciting opening night of crypto, hope this be the beginning of success. thanks have shared

Looks like the opening was a big success :-) I really like the exhibition space and what you have done with it.

I was just thinking about it and steemit & blockchain in general could kind of be considered conceptual art to a non-crypto savvy person. The whole idea behind decentralized ledger and the shift in peoples expectations toward taking true ownership of their financial management is a beautiful and complex thing. There are so many layers of understanding with blockchain/crypto that it's sort of analogous of the complexity of an amazing piece of art. Where it can look like something clear, distinct and perfect at the surface but there are hundreds of factors bubbling away beneath that give it that perfect form.

Anyway, I have started to wax philosophical and perhaps gone a bit over the top ;-) Great exhibition

Great stuff! Thanks!
