Live Events Bring Crypto Community Together: 0xpo, Crypties, and More

Bullet Points:
• Blocknative CEO Matt Cutler attended 0xpo Crossroads and discussed Blocknative’s business and misconceptions in the crypto space.
• The Crypties 2022 was held at Art Basel in Miami with emcee Josh Ostrovsky and sponsors.
• Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman and venture capitalists discussed raising in a bear market at 0xpo Summit.

Live events have become an important part of the blockchain and cryptocurrency space over the past few years, as conferences, summits, and other gatherings have become key venues for networking, learning, and making deals. This past year was no exception to that, with dozens of events taking place all over the world, from San Francisco to Miami to Lisbon.

One such event was 0xpo Crossroads in San Francisco, where Blocknative CEO Matt Cutler attended on November 3rd to discuss Blocknative’s business and dispel misconceptions about the crypto space. During the event, Matt was interviewed by Decrypt’s Jason Nelson, diving into Matt’s Web3 origin story and Blocknative’s mission. Matt talked about how the space has changed over the years and the potential of Web3 technologies.

Another major event was the Crypties 2022, held at Art Basel in Miami on December 2nd. This event was a gala awards ceremony that recognized the best of the best in the crypto space. With emcee Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“) and presenters from a range of crypto projects, nine awards were given out in total. The evening was sponsored by companies such as Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721.

Finally, 0xpo Summit in San Francisco on December 19th was a great opportunity to discuss the current state of the industry, especially with regard to raising capital during Crypto Winter. 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 for an extensive panel on the topic. Additionally, Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman also spoke 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.

Live events are an invaluable part of the blockchain and cryptocurrency space, with each event providing unique opportunities to learn, network, and make deals. This past year saw many great events, from 0xpo Crossroads to the Crypties 2022 to 0xpo Summit, and each event was a great way for the industry to come together and celebrate the progress that has been made.
