So, We Had a Contest

Hello again Hiverse! What you see above you, was the rough mock up of what I wanted the logo to look like for the merchandise that @thealliance will be handing out this year. Below, are the entries we got that followed the guidelines of combining the two words together as one word form. Which one did you like best?

PRIZES

We thought about some good positive motivation to find a great designer to create this.

Who doesn't like being paid for their time?

I have ultimately settled on 100 HBD as the reward for your hard work and supreme awesomeness.

@papacrusher from CineTV also threw in 100 #CINE and a Video Vic Rising Star card! Thank you!

One of our newest sponsors - @josephsavage, who coordinates the HBI (Hive Backed Income) initiative - has given us 1000 units to mete out at our disposal for prizes and such, so we're throwing in 100 HBI for this winner too!

Now, as we announce the winner and why, we will say that you can either take the money and run, or, you could totally redeem it for a Gold ticket to acquire the VIP standing at the LHIVE part of The Block Party II itself! That is, unless you will already be going, then hey, call it travel money. 😝

Heck, if you really wanted to, you could even swap it for HIVE and power it up. I think HIVE might be on sale right now! 😁

The choice is yours since you have won and we now have our design for the logo this year.

What we were looking for, was something that could be nicely placed over the top of The Alliance heart, so color was a big plus. Also, the one we settled on, after a few adjustments, just fit perfectly with the rest of the heart and spoke music as well. So, congratulations to @d-vine for her design! The end logo (it's still a work in progress) will look something like this:

Sponsors - We Want ALL of YOU!

For about the past month now, the main goal of arranging things for The Block Party II in Nashville, TN from September 9th-11th, has been to gather enough artists to have a woopass concert. We are very satisfied and confident that this has been accomplished and so, we are pursuing sponsors that wish to promote themselves and help the gathering be a huge success. I've been blessed with luck so far! Several have already come aboard and multiple others will do what they can as time and resources permit. Plus, we had a few approach us and make a few generous offers! So far, here is what is being donated to the cause (and a huge thank you!):

  • From @raymondspeaks - 1000 HIVE + and undisclosed amount of BRO tokens!
  • From @thebeardflex - throwing down for some #pizza for one of the meals at Mellow Mushroom!
  • From @thestickupboys - options are being reviewed, but they're in!
  • From @papacrusher & #cine - 6,000 CINE to be distributed amongst Silver and Gold ticket holders! (received - thank you!)
  • From @tokenpimp & #thepimpdisctrict - 10,000 PIMP + 1000 HIVE! (received - thank you!)
  • From @tunz & the NFT music community - 1000 HIVE!
  • From @ravenmus1c - 'The Raven Queen' - options are being reviewed, but they're in!
  • From @uwelang and the @music-community - promo post payouts and support! (current total = 9.317 HBD - added to the pot for attendees)
  • From @thealliance - all HBD earned from posts until a week prior to the event will be split evenly amongst the attendees! (current total = 120.361 HBD)
  • From @josephsavage - 1000 bonus units of HBI + 1000 standard units to be handed out as prizes! (900 left!) Thank you!

These have all been fully committed and are welcomed with appreciation from all those that it will affect. Aside from locking down a venue over the next few weeks, I will be hitting the grindstone and seeing about other people, organizations and initiatives that want to be in on The Block Party II. Maybe this is you? If so, please comment below what you are going to contribute or reach out to @enginewitty on Discord to discuss options. All that choose to sponsor in some form or fashion, will be represented on the tickets, posters, (select) merch and other various promotional materials.

Yes, tickets! Go get yours now! Do keep in mind, these tickets are not for The Block Party itself, as we will be lining up some things on various days that won't cost you anything but your time and presence. These tickets are for the concert on September 10th, to help reimburse The Alliance for setting things up and paying the fabulous artists that are coming to perform for us. The final design will be revealed after we have sponsors situated.

There are 4 different kinds of tickets. The first three, will be word of mouth sales until June and will increase in price after June 30th. All funds can/will be sent to @theblockpartyii to distribute among the musicians and The Alliance. If you are purchasing a ticket for someone else, please put that name/account in the memo. Those are:

  • BRONZE
    These tickets will initially cost 10 HBD (or the equivalent in whatever currency one pays in) and will allow a person to come socialize with everyone present and enjoy the music. The NFTs will also be able to be redeemable for a download/NFT of our choosing.

Current holders:

  • NONE

  • SILVER
    These tickets will initially be sold for 50 HBD (or the equivalent in whatever currency one pays in) and will allow a person enjoy a meal (dinner), take advantage of the bar, and go home with a few momentos provided by us. The NFTs will also be able to be redeemable for a download/NFT of our choosing. There will only be a limited number of these sold (250) as to try hard and not overextend our resources.

Current holders:


  • GOLD
    These tickets will initially be sold for 100 HBD (or the equivalent in whatever currency one pays in) and will be considered the VIP passes for the event. They will allow a person enjoy a meal (dinner), take advantage of the bar, go home with a nice swag bag provided by us and be invited to the after party following the concert where you can hang out with all the artists. The NFTs will also be able to be redeemable for a handful of downloads/NFTs of our choosing. There will only be a limited number of these sold as well (100) so may want to act fast if you plan on taking control of the twilight with Witty.

Current holders:


We feel this gives people time to save up for it before June and after June, there will be a 50% increase in the ticket cost. This is because general public tickets will go on sale (the same as a BRONZE ticket - but without the desired NFT redemption) for $15.00 USD. These will be sold promotionally from a few radio stations and a handful (based on the venue's total capacity) will be held for 'at the door' sales and latecomers.

NOTE - For those not paying in HBD, contact @enginewitty so an exchange can be made and he will send the equivalent HBD to @theblockpartii for the artists and The Alliance.


You may have noticed a video up there. Yes, she is coming out from California to perform for and with us! She was just recently featured on an episode of Netflix's hit show Ultimatum. We have made a change in the lineup and instead of Mr. Cap, we are broadening the genre filter a bit more by having EE Beyond join us! Including her, we have @trentonlundy1, @d-vine, @junkfeathers, @double-eagle, @polarmystro, @onemedia, @asonintrigue - bringing SkumlordT & Hello Luna, @lofi.freq and @iamdarrenclaxton! Hell of a docket there ladies and lads.

The Venue

We are still looking for that bombass spot and trying to hold out to make that happen, it will help to have more sponsorships and hope to lock down some good ones this week. We do have a few back-up venues already in tow if necessary, we'll see how it goes. We are aiming hard to have this finalized by mid May. We are trying to get a sweet multilevel building down on Broadway or 2nd Ave, maybe even Cannery Row or some sweet spot in the heart of Music City. Rest assured, it'll kick fuk'n ass.

So, pass this thing around! Reblog it, tweet it out, drop a note on IG, do whatever you think will help! We will update you with ticket sales and keep you posted on all the things happening. Again, if you are buying a ticket for someone else, please attach a memo in the transaction. Stay tuned my lovely humans! Or aliens. Or, ya know, whatever you choose to call yourself. 😝

Dear @thealliance, we need your help!

The Hivebuzz proposal already got important support from the community. However, it lost its funding a few days ago and only needs a few more HP to get funded again.

May we ask you to support it so our team can continue its work this year?
You can do it on Peakd, ecency, Hive.blog or using HiveSigner.
https://peakd.com/me/proposals/199

Your support would be really helpful and you could make a difference.
Thank you!
