The Crypties 2022 awards gala was held in December at Art Basel in Miami, sponsored by a range of crypto projects. Josh Ostrovsky, better known as “The Fat Jewish”, was the emcee, and awards were given in nine categories. This was a great opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of the crypto community and celebrate the success of the industry.

Kathleen Breitman, co-founder of the Tezos blockchain, joined Decrypt’s Stephen Graves onstage at Web Summit in Lisbon to discuss how Tezos has used a proof-of-stake mechanism since its inception, her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization, and NFT gaming.

At 0xpo Summit in San Francisco, Clay Robbins of Slow Ventures, Soona Amhaz of Volt Capital, Sarah Guo of Conviction and formerly Greylock, and Alex Strzesniewski of AngelBlock joined Jason Nelson for a panel on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter. They discussed the challenges of raising funds during difficult times, and offered strategies for entrepreneurs who are looking for funding.

Overall, the crypto industry is full of exciting live events, from summits and conferences to award galas and panels. These events are a great way for the community to come together, learn from each other, and build the future of blockchain and crypto.
