Social media companies are flocking to the world of Web3, and their strategies, achievements, and user responses vary.
One of the most popular social media platforms, Reddit, announced last month that it would release a series of NFT avatars based on its Snoo characters. Users can purchase these avatars on Reddit’s platform, ranging in price from $9.99 to $99.99. Designer collections, among others, are sold for a relatively higher price.
Recently, a Reddit administrator announced that the platform would be airdropping free NFT avatars to loyal users to recognize their contributions to the Reddit community. In the last few days, more users have received Reddit’s avatar airdrop, and they can’t wait to show off their privilege on Twitter.
What are Reddit Avatars?
Collectible Avatars are limited-edition avatars for Reddit users, providing owners with unique benefits on the Reddit platform. Moreover, Collectible Avatars are highly customizable. Users can mix and match avatar gear with other Reddit avatar gear and accessories. Additionally, owners can store and manage these avatars on Reddit’s blockchain wallet, Vault.
Reddit refers to the collection as Collectible Avatars and avoids overtly claiming they are NFTs. This is because NFTs tend to be associated with speculation and scams, and Reddit perhaps wanted to minimize such negative associations.
However, it is worth noting that users mint Collectible Avatars on Polygon with their metadata and content stored using IPFS. This proves that non-fungible tokens are the best tool for giving users digital sovereignty, ensuring the authenticity and transparency of digital assets.
Reddit chose Polygon because of its excellent compatibility with Ethereum. More importantly, Polygon enables cheaper, faster, and more energy-efficient transactions than the current Ethereum mainnet. As a result, Polygon is also the preferred network for many gaming dapps.
