The inaugural Crypties Awards took place in Miami on November 30, and it was quite a spectacle. The event was hosted by Decrypt Studios, and it was a celebration of the best and brightest in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space.
Katrina Wolfe accepted the Cryptie for Crypto Unicorns from presenter Avery Akkineni of Vayner3 for Game of the Year. The other nominees in the category were Stepn, Zed Run, and Blankos Block Party. Meanwhile, Illa Da Producer accepted the award from presenter Alanna Roazzi-Laforet on behalf of Yuga Labs for NFT Project of the Year.
In addition to the awards ceremony, there were also a number of live events throughout the day. For example, 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 onstage at Web Summit in Lisbon.

The Crypties Awards was a great way to end the year and celebrate the amazing accomplishments of the cryptocurrency and blockchain space. It was truly an inspiring event, and it was a testament to the hard work, dedication, and innovation of the industry as a whole. We look forward to seeing more groundbreaking projects and initiatives in the coming year.
