The Crypties Awards 2022 was a night to remember. On the 30th of November, Decrypt Studios in Miami hosted the very first Crypties Awards, a celebration of the best of the crypto world. The night was hosted by Josh Ostrovsky, better known as The Fat Jewish, and was sponsored by a range of 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.
The night was full of surprises and incredible moments, with awards given out in nine categories. The highlight of the night was the Game of the Year award, which was won by Crypto Unicorns. Katrina Wolfe accepted the award from presenter Avery Akkineni of Vayner3. The other nominees in the category were Stepn, Zed Run, and Blankos Block Party.
The night was filled with inspiring conversations and panels, including a talk from Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman at the Web Summit in Lisbon, where she discussed how the Tezos blockchain has used a proof-of-stake mechanism since its inception, her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization, and NFT gaming.
The closing panel of the night was a discussion on raising in a bear market, hosted by Clay Robbins of Slow Ventures, Steve Lee of Volt Capital, Ryan Selkis of Messari, and David Pakman of AngelBlock. The panel discussed the challenges of raising in a bear market and how to navigate the changing landscape of venture capital.
The inaugural Crypties Awards was a great success, and a perfect way to end the year. It was an incredible night that highlighted the best of the crypto world and gave us a glimpse of what’s to come in the future. We can’t wait for the next Crypties Awards in December 2022 at Art Basel in Miami.
