Why should you consider Podcasts?

Part of the reason for the rapid growth in podcasting is that they stimulate a different part of your brain. This allows you to learn faster than when reading text. Especially when it's a topic that you are interested in, you’ll find these conversations are quite engaging.

It’s no wonder hosts who deliver value in their episodes often end up building a great community of followers.

Podcasting in Crypto, NFTs, and Web3

With +/- 66 million episodes to choose from - you may find it a little overwhelming to know where to start. Fortunately, you are able to zoom in on a specific niche.

Even looking just within the crypto podcast space - you still have thousands of options.

As a crypto enthusiast, it’s a great way to dive into the rapidly changing industry of non-fungible tokens and crypto assets - or stay up to date with the latest NFT marketplace news.

And it’s all about you!

With the key success factor of Web3 being community engagement - it's no wonder that a search on platforms like Spotify or Apple Podcasts will deliver a whole host of results. Podcasters are building the type of content you want to hear.

You’ll find NFT (non-fungible token) podcasts, crypto podcasts, and a whole host of episodes discussing other projects - including cryptocurrency investment strategies and technical aspects of the NFT space. It’s an amazing resource for our community.

Finding your Best Crypto Podcast for 2023

Regardless of how long you've been in the crypto space - you’ll benefit from listening to some "getting started" podcasts first. Long-running daily podcasts have some really valuable early episodes.

Once you have a specific focus - you can begin honing in on the niche that you are most interested in. Various topics are covered.

Be it crypto markets, decentralized finance, virtual worlds, or one of the many NFT talk show podcasts - in the crypto field, there are many interesting topics and podcast series which make it easy to learn about blockchain projects, digital collectibles, and the NFT market.

Many industry experts will host a weekly podcast - while some choose to do a daily podcast.

At Lunar Strategy we're focused on web3 marketing and are committed to helping people learn about NFTs, Web3 projects, and cryptocurrency innovations.

That’s why we've gone out to find tested and respected crypto and NFT podcasts with blockchain experts and brought you this list of the top seven crypto and NFT podcasts to follow in 2023.

There's something for everyone!

Are you new to the crypto world and need an introduction to blockchain technology and the crypto market? Maybe you're just looking for the latest NFT news? Our list has something for you.

Topics will vary from crypto news to discovering relevant NFT projects, or if you’re simply interested in learning more about the future of this rapidly evolving industry, you have the opportunity to increase your knowledge as you follow industry pioneers and late entrants who have crossed over from more traditional markets.

Drawing the list down to seven was difficult enough - but in these episodes, you'll find a ton of really good value.

It’s worth issuing a warning though - you'll find different people with different opinions,  some of which you'll appreciate and some that may not suit your taste.

The joy of podcasting is that there are always more options out there.

Just be sure to avoid the shills, cons, and crypto hype by sticking to long-standing players in the crypto space.

Take a  look, have a listen, and give us some feedback - what do you think of our selection?
