The Sndbox incubator is an accelerator program powered by the Steem blockchain. The incubator is made up of 2 Cohorts each year; A Spring group running from February 1 - May 1, and a Fall group from August 1 - December 1.

Our community is a global and diverse network of artists, writers, designers, musicians and non-profit institutions. Sndbox helps members learn about and earn cryptocurrency to empower innovative projects and creative ideas. We use the Steem blockchain as an avenue for fundraising and as a forum to share research across the whole of the blockchain ecosystem.

Educate : We introduce and integrate blockchain resources with your work. Our incubator on-boards super talented individuals and organizations who represent a mix of new and experienced within the blockchain universe.

Coach : Our team provides weekly feedback and ongoing consultation. Members are guided with a custom curriculum to effectively learn about new cryptocurrencies and the opportunities surrounding them.

Empower : The incubator provides a network that creatives can harness to empower their craft both professionally and financially. We strongly believe that open-source practice paired with emerging technology can revolutionize the creative and entrepreneurial world.

WHY? CREATIVITY IS A RISKY BUSINESS...

Producing your work through traditional social-media nets you no direct gains and are time-consuming gambles. A lot of pressure is placed on your "final product" to sell and to compensate for time spent throughout the process (90%).

WE REWARD "THE PROCESS"

Sndbox helps tokenize the previously missing 90%. We educate and integrate the flow of your work and community alongside emerging attention-based cryptocurrencies. Whether you work as a freelancer, within an organization, or are trying to mobilize a new initiative, we help you better showcase your efforts and maximize the rewards from your process.

STEEM Park is the first public design project fully funded by cryptocurrency. The physical components of the project were financed 100% by mined blogging rewards and engaging with the Steemit community; no private donations or municipal support was provided. In short, it is the first public-interest project supported completely by public interest.

STEEM Park is a proof-of-concept that local community projects can be initiated and sustained through a global attention economy. Located in Herbert Von King Park, Brooklyn NY.

Sndbox develops projects that maximize the creative and social impact of blockchain products. Our work integrates community activities, artful media, and innovative strategies for outreach. We leverage both upcoming and active cryptocurrency resources to empower your work while providing connections to an evergrowing crypto-fluent network.

Our studio develops innovative projects that maximize the creative and social impact of blockchain products. From a Steem-backed Incubator that has onboarded over 200 global project accounts (representing 22 different countries) to The Creative Crypto magazine, a premiere resource for art, design, and entrepreneurship in blockchain - Sndbox is a leader in creating new forms of artistic outreach, education, and community engagement.

The incubator is an educational and accelerator program powered by the Steem blockchain. We help artists, designers, musicians, and non-profits learn about and earn cryptocurrency to empower innovative projects and creative ideas.
