Decrypt Studios is proud to present the inaugural Crypties awards gala, held in December 2022 at Art Basel in Miami. With emcee Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“) and presenters from a range of crypto projects, statuettes were awarded in nine categories. The evening was sponsored by Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721.
The Crypties was followed by a series of interviews and panel discussions at 0xpo Crossroads in San Francisco on November 3. Among the featured guests was Francesco Agosti, one of the minds behind the popular Solana dapp, who sat down with Decrypt’s Jason Nelson to discuss the history of Phantom and what he’s looking forward to in Web3.
Later that day, a panel was held at 0xpo Summit in San Francisco on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter. 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 for an extensive conversation about the current state of the industry and the challenges of raising capital. Additionally, Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman talked about 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 with Decrypt’s Stephen Graves.
All in all, the 0xpo Crossroads and 0xpo Summit events were a great success, with attendees gaining valuable insights from the featured guests and panelists. We look forward to more events like this in the future.
