Introduction to Reddit for Crypto Enthusiasts

It's hotly debated whether the web2 Reddit platform’s censorship model is wholly appropriate. Still, its open-book strategy has led to it being one of the busiest social media self-publication platforms in the world - specifically in America. 

In fact, Reddit is the seventh most visited website in the United States, so it's no wonder that it contains some of the best - and worst - community-created content from crypto and web3 users - along with many other topics.

The Structure of Reddit

Reddit is structured into a number of communities, focused on major topics and themes. These communities are named subreddits and Reddit has become a favorite place for crypto community to share all things crypto.

From crypto traders sharing crypto trading strategies, bitcoin memes, cryptocurrency news, new non-fungible tokens, and digital currency launches - to discussions on the open financial system and decentralized applications - there's a Reddit group for almost anything in the crypto world.

Introducing Crypto Subreddits

Subreddits are basically community pages where users can share relevant posts, and other users can vote on that content. The voting system is pretty simple - a thumbs-up gives a post one point and a thumbs-down takes a point away. 

The post with the most points in a subreddit remains at the top of the thread - drawing more views and engagement than less relevant posts lower down. It's important though to do your own research - even the best subreddits attract promotional posts which the community sometimes pushes along with the publisher.

Reddit adopts Web3

Reddit has also made strides into the web3 world since launching its own NFTs through ‘Blockchain-Backed Collectible Avatars’ which it sells, priced in USD, through its own storefront. These “Avatars” are actually NFTs on Polygon. The ownership is by default on a Reddit wallet called Vault.
