The Road Ahead
Now that The Creative Crypto’s open-source interface is officially public and we’ve made our first milestone of the year, we wanted to present our prospects for the magazine and the exciting road ahead. We’ll be adding many more layers of content and diverse functionalities to the website and to give you a sense of what will be available over the next several months, here is our roadmap for 2018!
The roadmap is more of a checklist rather than a hard schedule but we believe this to be an accurate projection of what we’re looking to develop from now until the rest of the year.
Late Q2 – Early Q3
The Creative Crypto Billboard
This will be the biggest new development to the website, porting our @cc-billboard account on Steemit to the BILLBOARD tab on thecreativecrypto.com interface. For the last week since announcing the new beta feature, we’ve received close to 100 submissions from creative professionals, blockchain platforms, and articles on various aspects of the creative crypto world. Here’s a peek at how the interface design is shaping up behind the scenes –
As you can see, the Billboard will host ongoing content submitted by our readership. This forum will host a unique array of creative content; everything from short-form articles, project spotlights, to competitions hosted by crypto-companies and initiatives. Our goal is to make it the premiere crypto-hotspot to list and learn about the best new opportunities in the space for creatives looking to get involved. We’ll have a more extensive Submissions link that makes it easier for anyone to have their work / event / community showcased on this part of the website.
Once the Billboard feature has officially launched, we’ll continue to build out new ways to sort according to hashtag or contributor name. Be sure to stay tuned for this major update in the weeks to come!
The First Partnered Content Series
A program we’ve been developing for the last few weeks is more partnerships with existing companies with a lot of rich stories to tell. There are still not many venues that can effectively host long-form or a series of content around the same topic or theme. We’re looking to break that mold and offer greater insight into the most exciting new creative technologies in the crypto space. We’ll be working closely with founding teams to creative exclusive and thoughtfully crafted content that showcases many dimensions of their initiative. The first examples will be published very soon.
Contribution and Sponsorship Features
To build on the momentum of the upcoming Billboard and Partnered Content, we’ll be building more opportunities for partners and sponsors to work with us and create unique content and events. This will include in-person events with our Meetup group, ongoing exhibitions like the one we’re doing for Sndbox, “The Crypto Renaissance,”, and other types of impactful programming that truly rallies the creative blockchain community together. We’re looking to establish the highest engagement possible with industry leaders.
Community Activities and Events
Alongside in-person events, we’ll be creating more articles that engage our readership even further. This will include lotteries / giveaways, surveys, challenges, and contests. Keep an eye out for our future campaigns for ongoing chances to be involved and win unique crypto-related prizes!
Q3 – Q4
This is the crypto-elephant in the room that’s we’ll be tackling head on. Learning about crypto and blockchain is still very burdensome and mired in inaccessible technical jargon. We’ve been working with the @kr-marketing team to create much more approachable visuals and explanations but we still have a long way to go. We’ll be putting a great deal of time and resources behind creating guides and material that are much more digestible, shareable, and understandable.
