On November 30th, Decrypt Studios held their inaugural Crypties Awards in Miami. It was an evening filled with excitement and anticipation, as the crypto space’s biggest projects and personalities gathered to celebrate the best of the best. The evening was hosted by Josh Ostrovsky, better known as “The Fat Jewish”, and presenters from a range of crypto projects awarded statuettes in nine categories.

It was a close race for the award for Game of the Year, with nominees Stepn, Zed Run, Blankos Block Party, and Crypto Unicorns all vying for the award. In the end, Crypto Unicorns was the winner, and Katrina Wolfe accepted the Cryptie for the game from presenter Avery Akkineni of Vayner3.

The event was sponsored by Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721.

Throughout the evening, onstage panels and interviews from conferences and summits were held. 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 at Web Summit in Lisbon.

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 at 0xpo Summit in San Francisco on November 3 for an extensive panel on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter.

The Crypties Awards provided a great way to recognize the achievements of the crypto community and to celebrate their hard work and dedication. It was an evening that will be remembered for a long time, and one that will be looked back on as a key moment in the history of crypto.
