The Fat Jewish, an American entrepreneur, radio host, social media personality, author, and plus-size model, burst into the mainstream with his humorous Instagram account in 2013.

"Crypto is sick and awards shows are sick, so can you actually imagine how sick a CRYPTO AWARDS SHOW is gonna be??" The Fat Jewish said, referring to his involvement in the Crypties.

“Josh understands the media landscape better than most, and knows what entertains people,” she added. “The Crypties are a night to honor the best in our business—but we want to have a bit of fun, too. Josh is the perfect person to put on a great show for the crypto community.”
