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.

Incubator applications are now closed.

The second cohort of the Sndbox incubator began August 1st.
Applications for Cohort 3 will open later this Fall.


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.


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%).


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.

"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.
