Artists, builders, investors, and thought leaders of the crypto world convened at Faena Forum in Miami on Wednesday for the inaugural Crypties Awards Gala, where Decrypt Studios recognized achievements in the blockchain ecosystem. Nearly 4,000 people voted for the awards in the token-gated process.
At the private VIP event, guests were entertained by emcee Josh Ostrovsky, aka @TheFatJewish, and enjoyed cocktails and canapés—while the award categories themselves highlighted artists, collections, DAOs, and industry leaders for their business and social impact in the Web3 space.
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.
