Reddit has introduced millions of its users to NFTs.
Collectible Avatars are Reddit profile avatars that are stored on Ethereum’s layer 2 Polygon network.

Collectible Avatars can be used as profile pictures for Reddit profiles. Reddit users can create and customise their own avatars and mint them as an NFT. The Collectible Avatar Creator Collection consists of unique avatars made by artists in partnership with Reddit.
When users create their own avatars, Reddit asks their users to keep their avatars in a vault. By creating a vault for an avatar, users are opening their own crypto wallets through Ethereum’s blockchain.
When your Vault is created, you will receive a public address and will need to secure your Vault. The public address is your address on Ethereum-compatible blockchains, where your Collectible Avatars are stored and that only you control.
As of October 2022, over 3 million crypto wallets have been created since the launch of Reddit Collectible Avatars.
