Unlocking the Power of NFTs: Reddit’s Third-Generation Avatars Set to Launch on Polygon

Reddit, the popular social news aggregation and discussion website, is set to launch its third generation of blockchain-based digital collectibles called “Reddit Avatars” next week. The platform has already deployed the contract on the Polygon blockchain, with the official launch scheduled for later this month.

Participation of Previous and New Artists in Avatar Design

In an announcement last week, an admin of the Reddit community detailed that some of the previous artists who participated in the first and second generations of collectibles were involved in the design and creation of the new Reddit Avatars. Additionally, there will be new artists involved, contributing their unique styles and designs to the third generation of collectibles.

Impact of upcoming NFTs on the first and second generations of avatars

Several users and enthusiasts of Reddit’s digital collectibles have expressed excitement about the launch of the third generation of “Reddit Avatars.” They believe that this upcoming release could boost the popularity of the earlier generations, positively impacting their sales and trades. It remains to be seen whether this anticipated effect will materialize, but the community seems optimistic.

Reddit’s launch of collectible avatars in July 2020

In July of last year, Reddit announced the launch of its collectible avatars and a Polygon-based NFT marketplace. The platform implemented these initiatives to leverage blockchain technology and enable its users to buy, sell, and trade digital items seamlessly. The move also aimed to support independent artists by providing a platform to showcase their talent and creativity.

Vault – Reddit’s Blockchain Wallet

Users can store and manage their digital collectibles on Reddit’s blockchain wallet, called “Vault.” They can access this wallet using their Reddit accounts, which simplifies the user experience and helps onboard new users to the world of blockchain and NFTs.

Independent artists are creating digital collectibles for Reddit

One unique aspect of Reddit’s digital collectibles is that they are created by independent artists. Unlike other NFT ecosystems, where established artists or celebrities may dominate the market, Reddit’s platform provides an opportunity for up-and-coming artists to gain visibility and a following. The total number of NFTs for sale on the platform reaches millions, with a wide range of styles and designs to choose from.

Secondary sales and trades

According to the Dune dashboard, the collection has recorded around $14 million in secondary sales across approximately 120,000 trades. This data highlights the popularity of Reddit’s digital collectibles among users and their value in the digital art world.


The launch of the third generation of Reddit Avatars has generated excitement and anticipation among users and enthusiasts. The involvement of previous and new artists in creating unique designs and styles adds to the interest around this upcoming release. Additionally, the potential positive impact of these new avatars on the first and second generations is being closely monitored by the community. As the world of NFTs continues to evolve, Reddit’s platform is likely to remain at the forefront of innovative and creative digital collectibles.
