We have seen Twitter incorporate NFTs into their platform, YouTube have recently announced that they are looking for ways to incorporate NFTs for their content creators, and now Reddit is making the leap into NFTs too by testing out NFT profile pictures on their platform.

Reddit is a hugely popular social media platform, throughout 2021 they had around 430 million monthly users, and now they are reportedly looking at ways to allow these users to set any non-fungible token with an attached image as their profile picture.

Reddit spokesperson Tim Rathschmidt stated in an interview with TechCrunch that:

“We’re always exploring ways to provide value for users and communities on Reddit. At the moment we’re testing the ability to use NFTs as profile pictures (avatars) and verify ownership.”

He also added:

“It’s a small, internal test and no decisions have been made about expanding or rolling out the capability,” he added.

An app developer – @nima_owji on Twitter – posted a banner from Reddit promoting the new feature, the fact they have a banner ready suggests that the tests for integration are already in advanced stages.

Reddit has been experimenting with a number of different NFT initiatives for a while now. They even set up a dedicated page for NFT-related activities at nft.reddit.com

With YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and now Reddit all getting behind NFT, it’s looking to be another hugely successful year for everything NFT!
