In December of 2022, Decrypt Studios held the inaugural Crypties Awards gala in Miami at Art Basel. The evening was hosted by Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“) and sponsored by multiple crypto projects such as Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721.
Katrina Wolfe accepted the Cryptie for Crypto Unicorns from presenter Avery Akkineni of Vayner3. The other nominees in the category were Stepn, Zed Run, and Blankos Block Party.
The Crypties Awards weren’t the only events of the night. Onstage panels and interviews from conferences and summits were also held. Kathleen Breitman, co-founder of Tezos, spoke about how the Tezos blockchain has used a proof-of-stake mechanism since the beginning, her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization, and NFT gaming with Decrypt’s Stephen Graves.
Clay Robbins of Slow Ventures, Soona Amhaz of Volt Capital, Sarah Guo of Conviction and formerly Greylock, and Alex Strzesniewski of AngelBlock joined Decrypt’s Jason Nelson at 0xpo Summit in San Francisco on November 3 for an extensive panel on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter.
The night was filled with excitement and praise for the crypto industry. It was a moment to celebrate the projects and people in the space who have worked tirelessly to make it what it is today. It was a night to remember and an opportunity for the crypto community to come together and recognize the progress and advancements being made.
