A majority of Reddit NFT wallets were created just for the non-fungible avatars. A total of 3 million wallets have now been created on the Reddit Vault.

Reports are emerging that eight out of ten Reddit Vault wallets were created following the introduction of NFT avatars. The information was revealed during a TechCrunch Disrupt conference panel.

Reddit chief product officer Pali Bhat was one member of the panel who said that over 3 million Redditors had used Reddit’s Vault wallet to create crypto wallets.

Bhat also pointed out that 2.5 million of those wallets were created to purchase Reddit NFT avatars. What’s interesting is the fact that the market’s biggest NFT marketplace, OpenSea, only has 2.3 million active wallets. That means Reddit potentially has more active wallets than OpenSea.

Number of active users: OpenSea

Reddit allows users to buy NFT avatars, with prices ranging from $9.99 to $99.99. Avatars are no longer available, as only 40,000 were designed. It’s not the only social media platform to allow this, with Twitter allowing users to use NFTs as profile pictures.

Reddit NFTs quickly sold out

Reddit is a second home to many cryptocurrency users. Two subreddits even have their own Reddit cryptocurrency — MOONS and BRICKS. Assets are stored in Reddit’s Vault, which is an embedded digital wallet.

Some Redditors received a free collectible avatar based on their karma, community engagement, and other criteria. They could also sell these collectible avatars, and appears on their public blockchain address.

With only 40,000 NFTs released, there wasn’t much supply to meet the heavy demand that Redditors showed for the avatars. However, they may be in for some luck, as Halloween-themed Reddit NFTs could be appearing soon.
