OUR PROGRAM

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.

To date, the global #sndbox community has earned over :

$416,500 USD


"PROCESS" case-study

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.

The Crypto Renaissance is the first exhibition in New York City that showcases creative and entrepreneurial work made on and through blockchain technology. The world of cryptocurrency now offers emerging tools that empower innovative work and not just fund it or provide for an interesting premise. Over the past several months, the blockchain incubator Sndbox has helped establish many of these new initiatives around the world. The Crypto Renaissance will showcase both the work produced over those months as well as the blockchain-powered tools (Steem DApps) that helped make them real.

The exhibition will be held in the gallery of 100 Bogart, a building complex in Brooklyn that houses dozens of influential blockchain startups.

DETAILS

Schedule: July 20 (Opening @ 7:00PM) - August 15, 2018
Location: 100 Bogart Street | Brooklyn, 1st Floor Gallery
