A few weeks later, in December 2022, Decrypt Studios held the inaugural Crypties awards gala at Art Basel in Miami. Hosted by Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“), the gala was sponsored by a range of crypto projects and presented statuettes in nine categories. This event celebrated the achievements of the cryptocurrency industry, and highlighted the potential of blockchain technology to revolutionize the world.
Then, in January 2023, Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman joined Decrypt’s Stephen Graves onstage at Web Summit in Lisbon to discuss how the Tezos blockchain has used a proof-of-stake mechanism since its inception. Kathleen also shared her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization, and NFT gaming. Finally, a panel on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter was held at 0xpo Summit in San Francisco. 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 to discuss the challenges of fundraising in a bear market, and how to make the most of the current financial situation.
