Crypto AM Awards: And the winners are…
Some of the finest people and businesses in cryptocurrency and blockchain were honoured at the Crypto AM Summit and Awards 2022.
In all, 20 categories spanning every aspect of the industry were handed out during the glittering event at the Royal Leonardo St Paul’s.
The ceremony was the climax to a two-day summit of outstanding speakers and panels, as well as world-class networking.
Hosted by Crypto AM’s editor-at-large James Bowater, it was the third annual Crypto AM Summit and Awards – and the second to be staged at the Royal Leonardo.
“Organising this event by remote control was never going to be easy. However, the team at home base all really stepped up to make this event our best-ever,” said globetrotting James.
“I am extremely excited to be thinking positively rather than negatively about 2023, and as such we will be leading the way with our Spring Awakening event in March, celebrating our fifth birthday in June, and bringing our Summit and Awards back to the tail-end of September, which we will once again do in the great city of London.
“Thank you once again to all of our partners, without whom none of this would have been possible, and deep-felt congratulations to all of our winners.”
The judges – Stefania Barbaglio, Rob Gaskell, Gocke Gizer, Dr Jane Thomason, Amelie Arras, Alissa Ostrove, Lawrence Wintermeyer, On Yavin, Dotun Rominiyi and Darren Rebeiro – were all charged with the extremely difficult task of choosing a winner from very strong candidate fields.
