Big News – Sndbox Incubator Cohort 2 001
CritDay has some news!
Our platform has been selected to join Cohort 2 of Sndbox’s Incubator program.
Now, you might be thinking; what is Sndbox, what is Cohort 2 and what is the Incubator?
Let’s start with Sndbox. The team over at Sndbox educate and build communities around creativity and blockchain. Helping individuals and organisations find their way through the (sometimes confusing) world of crypto and the blockchain. The aim is to use these emerging tools to empower creativity in new and exciting ways, much of this is through the Steem blockchain, something you will all learn about over the coming months.
Part of their initiative is the Incubator. This is an educational program run by Sndbox, bringing together a mixture of creative individuals from across the world. The program commences from 1st August for four months. There is an overall syllabus which sets the objectives and questions over this period, with each month focusing on a particular theme. After a successful first cohort, Sndbox opened applications again in July. 40 applicants were selected for Cohort 2. The cohort comprises photographers, artists, musicians, writers and you guessed it, architects. Over the coming months it will be interesting to see how potential collaborations could be made with these peers.

So what does this mean for CritDay, the platform and the followers?
Firstly, don’t worry CritDay will continue to curate and share the best work from architecture students across the world in the usual methods. This has been the foundation of the platform and is not something which will change anytime soon, if anything the Incubator will strengthen this.
Over the next four months expect to see a lot more written content, covering themes which are new to CritDay and potentially our audience. Themes such as blockchain and crypto and exploring other platforms such as Steem and the associated Dapps.
Each month the program focuses on a new topic, these are as follows:
Month 1 – Hello Blockchain
Month 2 – Explore
Month 3 – Collaborate
Month 4 – Future Forward
The following four months will be a chance for you to learn more about CritDay, the future of the platform and integration with crypto and blockchain. It may even lead to some CritDay followers applying for Cohort 3!
The next post will focus on the key aims and questions to be covered in month 1 and start to delve a little deeper into the world of blockchain.
Thanks for coming along for the ride!
