On December 6, 2022, Decrypt Studios hosted the inaugural Crypties Awards in Miami, sponsored by a range of leading crypto projects. A star-studded event, the awards were presented by emcee Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“) and featured presenters from a range of crypto projects, including Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721.
The Crypties Awards were held at Art Basel in Miami, a fitting venue for the first ever crypto awards gala. The atmosphere was electric, as the audience eagerly anticipated the announcement of the winners. Nine categories were awarded, each presented by a different presenter.
The winner of the coveted Game of the Year award was Crypto Unicorns, and the victor was accepted by Katrina Wolfe, who graciously accepted the award from presenter Avery Akkineni of Vayner3. The other nominees in the category were Stepn, Zed Run, and Blankos Block Party.
The evening also featured a series of onstage panels and interviews from conferences and summits. Kathleen Breitman, co-founder of Tezos, talked about the Tezos blockchain and its proof-of-stake mechanism, her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization, and NFT gaming with Decrypt’s Stephen Graves. Additionally, 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 panel on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter.
Overall, the Crypties Awards was an unforgettable experience, and the audience was left inspired and eager for the next year.
