Blocknative CEO Matt Cutler was a featured speaker at 0xpo Crossroads in San Francisco on November 3, delivering a presentation on the Web3 origin story and Blocknative’s business. This event was followed in December 2022 by the inaugural Crypties awards gala, which was held at Art Basel in Miami and featured emcee Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“) and presenters from a range of crypto projects. 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.
In January 2023, Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman spoke at Web Summit in Lisbon, discussing the Tezos blockchain’s use of 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.
In addition to these events, 0xpo Summit featured a panel on raising in a bear market, with Clay Robbins of Slow Ventures, Soona Amhaz of Volt Capital, Sarah Guo of Conviction and formerly Greylock, and AngelBlock’s Spencer Noon. The event was streamed live, with those in attendance discussing the challenges of raising in a bear market and strategies for successful fundraising.
Throughout the year, Blocknative and Decrypt hosted several events that explored the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. From the Web3 origin story to the Crypties Awards, from Tezos to the 0xpo Summit, these events provided insight into the industry and gave attendees the chance to learn more. With more events planned for the future, it looks like the crypto and blockchain space will continue to grow and evolve.
