“Mining Creativity and Cryptocurrency”
Next Wednesday (November 15th) Sndbox will be presenting to Cooper Robertson, a prestigious architecture and urban design firm in New York City. The talk “Mining Creativity and Cryptocurrency” will illustrate the benefits of professional practice on the Steem Blockchain. The presentation will walk through a series of basic strategies and definitions to help design firms, like Cooper Robertson, see the value of the blockchain ecosystem and visualize how this platform could become a resource for architects.
Here’s an outline of the talk:
While this will be a private presentation exclusively for CR - we will make sure to document everything and provide a recap of ideas, discussions and takeaways. Here’s a bit more about the topics our team will cover:
- Introduction to Steem and Steemit : What is Steem, how does it work?
- Sndbox Incubator Walkthrough : Who we are, what projects we’re working on.
- How Creatives can Monetize their Process : Step by step examples of how you can monetize architectural research, design progress, feedback loops and finished products.
- STEEM Park as a Proof of Process : Example of community engagement and cultivating an audience through the design process.
- Future of Decentralized Design : What this all means for architectural practice today.
- Impact of Blockchain on Urbanism : How this ecosystem can impact the way in which smart cities are planned and interact with one another.
- SMTs as Infrastructure for City-building : Future of crowdfunding mechanisms and the democratization of public resources within urban areas.
We’re excited to have an opportunity to present these ideas. We @sndbox believe that (especially with Social Media Tokens) the Steem ecosystem could become a transformative resource within the built fabric of neighborhoods and cities. Cooper Robertson is a big leader in this regard, having been the architect of record for the Whitney Museum in New York City, waterfront resiliency planning in Red Hook Brooklyn, master planner of Battery Park City, designer of Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, along with countless Campus master plans for universities all over the globe.
In a past life, our very own @voronoi actually used to work as an urban designer at Cooper Robertson! Back in early December of 2016, Kirk did a presentation called “Blockchain: The Future of Decentralized Design” which highlighted a nascent knowledge of the Steem ecosystem. Next week, we’re thrilled to have an opportunity to return and share what we’ve learned nearly 1 full year later. It’s amazing how time flies on the blockchain.
