On November 30th, Decrypt Studios held its inaugural Crypties Awards in Miami, Florida. The event was hosted by Josh Ostrovsky, better known as „The Fat Jewish,“ and presenters from a range of crypto projects joined to award statuettes in nine categories. The evening 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.
One of the night’s biggest awards was the Social Impact Award, which was accepted by Marek Olszewski on behalf of Celo. The award was presented to him by Dan Roberts of Decrypt Media. Other nominees in the category included Ukraine DAO, Dream DAO, Proof of Protest, and Digital Diaspora.
The night was a success, as it provided a platform for crypto projects to be recognized for their contributions and successes within the blockchain industry. It was also a chance for the crypto community to come together and celebrate its achievements.
The following year, in December 2022, Art Basel in Miami hosted a highlight reel of the previous year’s Crypties Awards. This was the first time the event was held at a different venue, and it was a chance for the crypto community to come together in a different city and celebrate its accomplishments.
The night featured onstage panels and interviews from conferences and summits, as well as talks from Kathleen Breitman of Tezos on how the Tezos blockchain has used a proof-of-stake mechanism since its inception. There were also presentations from Slow Ventures, Volt Capital, Conviction, and AngelBlock on raising in a bear market.
Overall, the inaugural Crypties Awards were a huge success, and the highlight reel in December of the following year allowed the crypto community to continue celebrating their success and progress within the industry. The awards provided a platform to recognize projects and individuals, and the highlight reel provided a chance to reflect on the achievements of the previous year.
