The event honored the hard work of many projects and individuals, awarding statuettes in nine categories. One of the most anticipated awards of the night was the Metaverse Event of the Year. The nominees for the award were Decentraland’s Metaverse Fashion Week, Heal from The Sandbox, and People of Crypto’s Metaverse Pride Parade. The winner was People of Crypto’s Metaverse Pride Parade, which was accepted by Simone Berry and Akbar Hamid.
The Crypties is an event that looks to the future, and with that in mind, Decrypt Studios is already planning ahead for the next awards ceremony. The Crypties 2022 will be held on December 6 at the Art Basel in Miami. The event will feature live events such as onstage panels and interviews from conferences and summits.
At the Web Summit in Lisbon, Decrypt’s Stephen Graves interviewed Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman. Breitman 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.
In addition, Decrypt’s Jason Nelson hosted a panel at the 0xpo Summit in San Francisco on November 3. The panel included Clay Robbins of Slow Ventures, Soona Amhaz of Volt Capital, Sarah Guo from Conviction and formerly Greylock, and Alex Strzesniewski of AngelBlock. The panelists discussed raising venture money even during the cryptocurrency bear market.
The Crypties Awards has become a much-anticipated event in the cryptocurrency space, and Decrypt Studios looks forward to hosting the next awards ceremony on December 6, 2022. With the continued growth and development of the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry, the night promises to be full of surprises, recognition, and celebration.
