• Decrypt Studios held the inaugural Crypties Awards gala in December 2022 at Art Basel in Miami.
• Phantom co-founder Francesco Agosti was featured at 0xpo Crossroads in San Francisco.
• Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman discussed their blockchain’s proof-of-stake mechanism at Web Summit in Lisbon.

At the end of 2022, Decrypt Studios held the first ever Crypties Awards gala at Art Basel in Miami. With host Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“) and a range of presenters from different crypto projects, awards were given out in nine categories. The event was made possible by generous sponsors such as Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721.

In November, 0xpo Crossroads was held in San Francisco with Phantom co-founder Francesco Agosti as the featured guest. Jason Nelson of Decrypt sat down with Francesco to discuss the history of Phantom and what he’s looking forward to in the world of Web3.

At Web Summit in Lisbon, Decrypt’s Stephen Graves interviewed Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman about how their blockchain has been using a proof-of-stake mechanism since its inception, her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum, and sharding, as well as her thoughts on progressive decentralization and NFT gaming.

Finally, at 0xpo Summit in San Francisco, Jason Nelson of Decrypt moderated a panel on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter. Guests included Clay Robbins of Slow Ventures, Soona Amhaz of Volt Capital, Sarah Guo of Conviction and formerly Greylock, and Alex Strzesniewski of AngelBlock.

The in-person and virtual events hosted by Decrypt Studios throughout the year provided an exciting opportunity for people in the crypto space to come together, share their knowledge and experiences, and discuss the possibilities of the future of blockchain. From the Crypties awards gala to the panels on raising venture money, these events offered valuable insight into the ever-evolving world of crypto and blockchain.
