EXPLORE THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC SPACE
This is a new kind of competition. One that celebrates open-source ideation and rewards creatives to visualize a 21st century public realm powered by blockchain technology.
Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are revolutionizing the way we create content, navigate the web and exchange resources at a global scale. This competition seeks to explore how physical spaces will begin to interpret this disruptive digital ecosystem.
What is the future of public space?
What will a public square look like? How will blockchain infrastructure permeate the physical spaces we're surrounded by? How will it empower (or destroy) community assets?
over $10,000 USD in value
We believe in open source ideation. Each participant will be required to submit their work publicly on Steemit.com (a blogging application built upon the Steem blockchain).
Everyone will face critique from a global audience of designers and non-designers. And last but not least, ALL participants will earn cryptocurrency for their submission.

WHY REWARD everyone? BECAUSE DESIGN COMPETITIONS ARE BROKEN
They've become lotteries. Hosts profit from entry fees and students are farmed for their valuable ideas. Projects never see the light of day and are rarely open to the critique of an outside audience. Even winning entries rarely leave an impression on the field. This is wrong. We're here to change all of it.
