At 0xpo Crossroads in San Francisco on November 3, blockchain attorney Lisa Rubin sat down with Decrypt’s Jason Nelson to discuss the legal misconceptions the industry still holds. Lisa explained that it is important for crypto companies to seek legal advice before launch, as there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to the legal aspects of launching a blockchain project.

In December 2022, Decrypt Studios held the inaugural Crypties awards gala, held at Art Basel in Miami. Josh Ostrovsky, also known as „The Fat Jewish“, was the emcee for the evening, and presenters from a range of crypto projects attended and presented their awards. The sponsors for the event included Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721.

At Web Summit in Lisbon, Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman discussed the use of proof-of-stake on the Tezos blockchain, her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization, and NFT gaming with Decrypt’s Stephen Graves onstage.

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 a panel on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter. The panel discussed the importance of having a solid legal foundation before seeking funding, and the panelists shared their experiences of raising capital in the current bear market. They also discussed the changing landscape of fundraising and the need for entrepreneurs to be aware of the regulatory environment in their jurisdiction.

Live events such as 0xpo Crossroads, The Crypties 2022 Awards Gala, Web Summit, and 0xpo Summit are invaluable for the industry, as they provide opportunities for meaningful conversations about the legal and financial aspects of the blockchain industry. These events help to foster an open dialogue about the current and future state of the industry, and provide a platform for industry experts to share their insights and knowledge.
