Best of 2023

Our most popular newsletters, onchain reports and podcasts.

Merry Christmas DOers! 😎

Tell me… How good did it feel to talk about crypto again with your family & friends at the Christmas dinner party? 

I hope you flexed on them. And I hope you told them we’re up 100s of % this year. 

I hope you went full Steve Harvey mode. 😂

I’m kidding. I truly hope you’re having an awesome time with your family & friends. 

So I won’t steal much of your time. Today, I’ll share our best 2023 content, including top newsletters, podcasts, debates, and onchain reports. 

If you have spare time and a thirst for learning, this is for you. 

Use this time to learn about the next iteration of the internet & make sense of an onchain world that’s in constant transformation.

Here are the resources you need to do just that.

The Elite Five: Newsletters That Ruled 2023

Our newsletter, sent to your inbox 3 times per week, has covered the top web3 news and trends from 2023. Here are the top 5 newsletters you should read (if you haven’t already).

Want more news? In 2 days, we’ll send you a Year in Review newsletter covering the top 30 web3 news from 2023 – stay tuned for that. 

First up, the launch of Pudgy Penguin toys on Amazon & how Luca Netz has built a funnel that any web3 brand can copy.


Huge! Maybe the biggest event of 2023. Why?

Because if XRP isn’t a security, then 90% of the rest of the cryptocurrencies aren’t either. 

Thirdly, Grayscale wins its lawsuit against the SEC. 

This event probably marked the biggest L that the SEC has taken in its fight against crypto. 

They treated Grayscale’s Spot Bitcoin ETF unlawfully and a judge forced them to take another look. 

This was just like the SEC got yelled at by their parents for picking on the other kids at school. Love to see it. 

Fourthly, the FED pivot. 

Earlier this month, the FED announced that they’re planning to lower interest rates in 2024. 

This is a huge turning point for all risk assets, crypto included, as it basically gives the green light for investors to start allocating capital into the markets again. 

This is what’ll set us up nicely for 2024. 

Lastly, airdrop farming on Solana! 

We sent you this newsletter weeks ago and I hope you went to work to farm some of these upcoming tokens. 

If you didn’t, it’s cool! You might still have some time left. 

A Six-Pack of Onchain Goodness

First up, let’s celebrate 1 year of Web3 Academy PRO. 🥳🥳🥳

A year full of exciting onchain insights and lots of learnings!! You can read all of our past reports here.

However, today, I wanted to share the 6 reports that will set you up nicely for the 2024 bull market.

These are the 6 reports that’ll help you capitalize on this massive, once in a lifetime opportunity. 

Firstly, I called almost the exact inflection point of the crypto markets – we published the ‘Stars Are Aligning’ report just before prices started to pump. 

However, that was pure luck – I was simply looking at the macro overview and the fact that markets started to pump right away was a coincidence. 

But if you want to understand why markets are going up, read the report.

Secondly, build your portfolio! 

How do you build your crypto portfolio to both safeguard yourself if markets tank, but also to have a decent chance at catching 10, 50 or even 100x surges??

I’ll show you!

This bull market will be massive. You need to position yourself correctly!! 

Thirdly, what should you do as the bull market intensifies? 

As prices pump, FOMO will creep in and it will be really easy to lose your head and start trading irrationally. 

In this report, I share my top 5 tips that you need for this bull market.

Fourth on the list is my price predictions.

Now that you’re confident in your portfolio and ability to approach the markets with a cool head, let’s talk about when it’ll be time to take profits.

Read my predictions report for Bitcoin, Ethereum and Solana to find out where the top will most likely be for the largest crypto assets.

Lastly, capitalize on the L2 narrative.

I think that the Ethereum Layer 2 narrative will be one of the main drivers in 2024. 

To capitalize, read my 2 deep dive reports into the tokenomics of top L2 tokens: Arbitrum, Optimism, Immutable and Polygon.
