January tends to feel quite lengthy, but it has eventually come and gone. This was a very busy month at LayerX, with important product developments and close collaboration with leading companies in the blockchain industry.

Today, let’s take a moment to recap what went down at LayerX this month, before kicking off February!

New entries to the Portuguese Web3 Ecosystem Map 2024

Building on the success of last year’s map, we teamed up with Masterblox to reveal the 2024 edition of the Portuguese Web3 Ecosystem. After publishing the map, we were overwhelmed by the positive response from the community and suggestions of new additions to the list, which we evaluated and crossed-checked against the acceptance criteria. After reviewing all the new applications, we have added a few more companies to the list that we believe will keep making significant contributions to the Web3 Portuguese ecosystem in 2024.

Here’s the new Portuguese Web3 Ecosystem Map for 2024.

Winners will be announced on 18th February, and we can’t wait to see the projects submitted! 🤞

Bepro

Release of Bepro v2.19

This month we released Bepro v2.19, the latest version of Bepro which brings a lot of improvements and new features to the platform. The changes and updates introduced in this version fall into two main categories: improvements to the User Interface and User Experience (UI/UX), and enhancements to the back-end processes. The platform has been completely revamped and we’re sure that builders that leverage the platform to solve tasks will now enjoy a better, more seamless user experience. As always, don’t forget to share your feedback!

Get to know all the updates and features of Bepro v2.19.

What’s coming?

Next month, we will keep working closely with our partners and clients to provide you with the most incredible hackathon experiences. We’ve also been working behind the scenes to improve our products and establish new partnerships that will benefit the LayerX ecosystem. Stay tuned as we’ll disclose more details in the upcoming weeks 🙂.

We are ready for you, February!
