Reddit Endangered Animals NFTs

ICYMI: Endangered Animals NFT Offerings on Reddit

Two of my favorite user-generated content platforms in the cryptocurrency realm at the moment are Publish0x and Torum - so I've gotta give a shout out to user @Oivas for alerting me earlier this week by sharing their Publish0x article on Torum about this latest Reddit profile NFT offering.

What Are Reddit Profile NFTs?

If you're not familiar, Reddit profile NFTs are offered for free occasionally; in the past, they've sometimes offered a run for various sports events (like the Superbowl and World Cup), while others just seem to be a bit more whimsical. In any case, Reddit is currently offering users a chance to snag a new NFT from their latest series, this time featuring caricatures of various endangered species.

How Do You Claim a Reddit Profile NFT?

To claim yours (there are still roughly half of the blockchain collectibles left to be claimed at the time of writing) click on your avatar in the Reddit mobile app twice (once to open the side bar, then again on your enlarged avatar to open the shop explorer.) Under the 'Explore' tab, you'll see the Endangered Animals series at the top of the list. Choose which one you'd like, click "Get Yours,' and you're done! Two notes, however: if you haven't claimed an NFT before you'll most likely be prompted to create your Vault (which is Reddit's version of a NFT wallet, so treat it and your recovery phrase with the same level of secrecy and privacy you do for your other wallets); also, I've noticed that there's often a delay with the NFTs I've claimed showing up in my vault. If you don't see yours right away, it might take up to half an hour for it to finally show in your account.

Can You Transfer Your Reddit Profile NFT to Another Wallet?

Yes! Reddit NFTs are built on Polygon, so you will need a little bit of $MATIC to cover gas fees. Currently, there is a $MATIC faucet running specifically to help with Reddit gas fees. You can check out this excellent explainer post on Reddit, and follow the link to claim yours. Currently, you can't see your $MATIC balance in your Reddit vault, but you can always check your balance by entering your Reddit vault address on PolygonScan. (I've also noticed a slight delay in the $MATIC showing up under my address after using the faucet, so give it a few minutes after claiming.)

Enjoy your free NFT!
