After nearly half a year of testing the feature to set NFT as an avatar, the day has finally come for Reddit’s NFT marketplace to be launched.
“Collectible Avatars are backed by blockchain technology, giving purchasers rights (a license) to use the art – on and off Reddit.”
Users can use their own crypto wallet Vault to store NFTs. Currently, Vault is also used to earn community points, which can be used to buy badges or emoticons on the platform.
Reddit will roll out 90 different designs with the total number of NFTs open for sale in the early stages revealed to be in the tens of thousands. The company notes that users do not need to have a crypto wallet to buy NFT, but can pay with a traditional credit or debit card. If you spend money to buy a limited edition NFT, users will be licensed to use it on and off Reddit.
As of today, the NFT profile picture is available to members of the r/CollectibleAvatars subreddit. The project will soon announce details on wallet setup and an exclusive AMA schedule with artists.
There is no auction form, all NFTs are quoted at a fixed price in fiat currencies such as USD. List prices for avatars will be $9.99, $24.99, $49.99, $74.99 or $99.99. If you are not part of the above subreddit community, please wait to buy NFT on this site in the coming weeks.
The company has partnered with several artists from the r/Comics, r/ProCreate, and r/AdobeIllustrator communities for the first collection. Artists also receive royalties at a 50/50 ratio with Reddit from the sales of this NFT on exchanges like OpenSea and Rarible.
Earlier this year, Reddit began testing a feature that allowed users to set any Ethereum-based NFT as their profile picture. In 2021, the company released limited-edition NFTs called CryptoSnoos, based on its mascot “Snoo.”
