The NFT profile photo functionality on Reddit is still under internal development. So far, Reddit has introduced four NFTs. Reddit has not said when the NFT profile image functionality will be available. Twitter’s NFT profile image function was launched earlier this month. The Ethereum blockchain serves as the foundation for CryptSnoo NFTs.
According to reports, Reddit is preparing to implement a feature that will allow users to display their non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as profile images. This function will be identical to the one offered by Twitter earlier this month. According to the source, however, details concerning Reddit’s NFT profile photo function have yet to be determined. Reddit also introduced its NFT, CryptoSnoo, last year. According to the article, users will be able to utilise CryptoSnoos and other NFTs as Reddit profile images.
Reddit spokesperson Tim Rathschmidt told TechCrunch on Wednesday, “We’re continuously investigating ways to give value for Reddit users and communities.” “At the moment, we’re evaluating the possibility to utilise NFTs as profile photos (avatars) and verify ownership,” he continued. Reddit hasn’t said when the functionality would be accessible. Rathschmidt, on the other hand, stated, “It’s a limited, internal test, and no decisions have been made regarding extending or rolling out the capabilities.” This function is reported to be similar to one that Twitter launched last week.
Reddit – NTFs
The microblogging service now offers users a new option that allows them to utilise NFTs as profile images. NFT profile photographs on Twitter display hexagons rather than the circular shape offered for conventional profile pictures. Tapping on the images brings up information about the art and who owns it. Reddit introduced CryptoSnoo NFTs in June 2021. The Ethereum platform creates limited-run NFTs. The price of Ethereum in India on January 27 at 4:57 p.m. IST was Rs. 1.98 lakh.
“CryptoSnoos represent some of the most breakthrough events in art history,” according to Reddit. When a person buys a CryptoSnoo NFT and connects it to their Reddit account, the picture of the NFT becomes the user’s avatar on the social media network. In addition, users receive a collectable NFT card on their profile, and their remarks have an animated glow. Snoo, as in CryptoSnoo, is Reddit’s extraterrestrial mascot. The NFTs are a Snoo mascot variety.
As of now, four CryptoSnoo NFTs have been released: one is an 8-bit style Snoo, one is a Helium balloon Snoo, one is a disco-ball Snoo, and one is a modern-art inspired Snoo. CryptoSnoo is now only available on Reddit’s desktop website.
