Social network Reddit has launched a collectible avatar marketplace, where users will be able to buy “blockchain-based profile pictures” in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), according to a CoinDesk report. The NFTs will be stored on Polygon's blockchain.
The website will work with independent artists to produce one-of-a kind avatars that Reddit users can purchase for a set fee and modify using accessories. A part of the profit from the sales will go to the creators of the NFTs. Once Reddit users purchase the NFT, they would have rights on the artwork both on and off Reddit.
