Blocknative CEO Matt Cutler recently had the opportunity to share his Web3 origin story and Blocknative’s business at 0xpo Crossroads in San Francisco on November 3. During the event, Matt discussed a range of topics, including misconceptions in the crypto space, giving the audience a unique insight into the world of Web3.

In December, Decrypt Studios held the inaugural Crypties awards gala at Art Basel in Miami. The evening was hosted by Josh Ostrovsky („The Fat Jewish“), with presenters from a range of crypto projects. Awards were given out in nine categories, and 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.

Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman was also onstage at Web Summit in Lisbon. During the event, she spoke about the Tezos blockchain and its use of 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 on November 3, a panel on raising venture money even during Crypto Winter was held. 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 the panel. They discussed the challenges of fundraising in a bear market and how to navigate it.

As the crypto space continues to grow, more and more events are popping up to bring the community together, allowing for the exchange of ideas and the growth of the industry. Blocknative CEO Matt Cutler’s talk at 0xpo Crossroads, the Crypties awards gala, and the panel on fundraising at 0xpo Summit are just a few examples of the ways that the blockchain community is coming together and helping each other grow.
