The majority of the Lunar Strategy team is based in Lisbon, Portugal and we think this is a great reason to pay homage to our home and make a list of the Top 5 Portuguese crypto & web3 publications.

Portugal and Lisbon, in particular, have become a hub for the Web3 and crypto scene, with notable events like the World of Web3 Summit taking place in Lisbon from 1-3 November. Many founders, startups, advertisers, and crypto projects have made their way to Portugal for its welcoming environment for blockchain projects, digital assets, and decentralized protocols. So it makes sense for this bustling Crypto metropolis to have a list of the top 5 Portuguese crypto & web3 publications.

The crypto & web3 industry has seen an increase in users looking for information on non-fungible tokens (NFTs), how the blockchain network operates, how large exactly the crypto market can scale, and what exactly smart contracts are. There is a new generation that has formed in recent years, that is motivated by companies putting them first and providing them services that will allow them to achieve some form of financial freedom.

Decentralized projects that create a business model focused on real-world value through cryptocurrency are essential to the longevity of the industry. Projects built around an expert team looking to provide users with new opportunities for life-changing technology are on the up. The growth of blockchain technology and the adoption of the technology across various industries has created a need for the 'crypto curious' to be able to find reliable and trustworthy crypto news.

These leading Portuguese publications have all contributed to the growth of cryptocurrency and all various aspects of importance in the industry. Each one of the below listed Portuguese crypto and web3 publications focuses on cryptocurrencies, Web3 technologies, the decentralized economy, and more! So, without further ado, here they are:

What should I expect to find in these publications?

Even though they are providers of unbelievable value, the Top 5 Portuguese Crypto and Web3 publications may be something completely new for someone brand new to the industry. So we thought we'd also cover what it is exactly you should expect from these publications and the general topics they cover in relation to crypto, crypto news, and the blockchain in general.

Crypto News

Crypto news is a way for both the public and other crypto companies to take note of what is happening in the very rapidly evolving world of cryptocurrency. This is also a good resource for getting information about new trends, learning about new companies and exciting projects or learning about which companies are looking for funding and if there are any opportunities for you to take advantage of.

This kind of news can also be useful for someone who wants to invest in a new company but doesn't know when that company will actually open its doors, but with accurate data being reported the roadmaps of very good and exciting projects become a very real reality.

By giving an update on the status of many different cryptocurrencies, businesses, and trends that are currently shaping the market, having a good platform in which this kind of news is distributed is something that will set readers up for the future.

Smart contracts and the projects that are using them

A smart contract is a digital agreement that can be automatically executed by computer code. The code is usually stored on a blockchain, which is an electronic ledger that keeps track of transactions. Smart contracts are the real game changer in the blockchain industry because of their reliance on blockchain technology.

Blockchains are decentralized, distributed ledgers that store information about transactions that occur across a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. Each transaction on the blockchain is secured and bound to each other using cryptographic principles (i.e. chain of blocks). The ledger is public and everyone in the network can see it, which makes it transparent, immutable, and secure. To make this simple, anyone can see what happens here.

Smart contracts eliminate the need for intermediaries/third parties because computers execute the terms of the contract automatically instead of relying on humans to do so. This results in reduced costs because users don't have to pay for an intermediary service, increased security because there is no single point of failure for hackers to exploit, and faster transaction speeds because there is no intermediary to slow down the system with its own bureaucracy.

One example of a smart contract is an insurance policy that is implemented through code instead of through an insurance company. For example, a person could purchase an insurance policy that would automatically pay out if they were to be in an accident. The contract would stay in effect unless the insured person decided to opt-out or if the terms of the contract were violated. This eliminates the need for insurance companies because computers can execute these contracts on their own without human intervention.

Good publications in the crypto and web3 publishing space are always looking to talk about the newest and most exciting projects that they believe will bring value to their readers and create long-lasting adoption of the technology that is slowly changing the world.

Decentralized protocols

A protocol is a set of standard rules and guidelines. A protocol can be used to describe the rules that govern a group of people, such as the members of an organization.

A protocol is also a set of rules for communication between computers and programs.

Decentralization means there is no central point of control or that control is distributed evenly. In the context of cryptocurrency, decentralization can refer to two things. The first is that there are no central authorities such as banks or governments who control the currency. Decentralization also means that no single entity can turn off a blockchain network.

The decentralized protocols themselves are the systems, the framework, which govern cryptocurrency and its ecosystem. The protocols are open-source and public, which means anyone can use them to build applications and services. The decentralized nature of the protocols helps ensure that no one person or entity can control their use or access.

Decentralized protocols are simply protocols that are not owned by any one group and can be used by anyone which drives home the security and safety aspect of using blockchain technology. The protocols define how people interact with each other and with the data on a blockchain network.
