In December 2022, Decrypt Studios held the inaugural Crypties Awards gala in Miami at Art Basel. The event was hosted by Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“), and was sponsored by a range of leading crypto projects, including Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721. Awards were presented in nine categories, with the winner of the game of the year award being Crypto Unicorns, as accepted by Katrina Wolfe from presenter Avery Akkineni of Vayner3. Other nominees in the category were Stepn, Zed Run, and Blankos Block Party.

The event also featured onstage panels and interviews from conferences and summits, with representatives from Tezos, Slow Ventures, Volt Capital, Conviction, AngelBlock, and Polygon. Kathleen Breitman, co-founder of Tezos, 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. 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 gala was a celebration of the crypto industry, and a recognition of the projects and people who have made significant contributions to its growth and development. It was an exciting and memorable evening that demonstrated the potential of blockchain technology and its applications in the real world.
