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.

At Web Summit in Lisbon, Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman took to the stage and spoke about the Tezos blockchain, which has used a proof-of-stake mechanism since its inception. She discussed her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization, and NFT gaming with Decrypt’s Stephen Graves.

Raising in a Bear Market was also a topic discussed at the 0xpo Summit. Clay Robbins of Slow Ventures, Steve Beauregard from Volt Capital, Aaron Lasher from Breakout, and Andrew Berens from AngelBlock discussed how they navigate the current market, with a focus on staying agile, seeking out opportunities, and staying ahead of the curve.

At the end of the night, it was clear that the Crypties Awards was a success, and a great way to celebrate the crypto industry. With more events planned for the future, Decrypt Studios is sure to stay a major player in the crypto space.
