Reddit Chief Product Officer Pali Bhat stated that more than 3 million Reddit Vault wallets based on Polygon had been made by users to collect and trade Reddit NFT avatars at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference last week. The Dune dashboard reports that there are currently more than 2.9 million avatars in use. Some of the avatars were premium NFTs, which users bought from the website for fixed prices starting at $10 to $100 each. According to Reddit Floor statistics, roughly 86,000 NFTs were sold to users, giving them a market cap (or worth) of about $100 million as of right now.
More Reddit NFTs, however, were also handed away or airdropped for free to some of the site’s most loyal users across more than 100,000 vibrant communities (or subreddits), exposing many individuals to NFTs for the first time.
