Reddit’s MOONs Will Make New Millionaires – This Is How You Earn With Reddit

The native token of the popular online community Reddit, known as MOONs, has seen a sharp surge in its value over the past 24 hours, with the price more than doubling from $0.09 to $0.20 before consolidating. This price movement follows an update to Reddit’s Terms of Service (ToS) that allows for the free trading of MOONs and other digital assets issued on the platform.

MOONs, originally conceived as an experimental method of rewarding user engagement in subreddits such as R/Cryptocurrency, live on the blockchain. In this ecosystem, user contributions can earn points in the form of tokens. Thanks to Reddit’s recent decision to utilize Arbitrum’s Nova network, users can now independently trade MOONs on decentralized exchanges (DEXes) like SushiSwap.

Reddit’s previous ToS, which prohibited the trading of asset rewards received by users, presented a roadblock for exchanges interested in listing MOONs. Violating these terms would have resulted in possible legal action from Reddit. Hence, users interested in trading MOONs had to traverse a complex process involving setting up a Web3 wallet, copying seedphrases, and connecting to Nova, among other steps.

The new policy adjustment, however, allows users to trade MOONs more freely. It also potentially paves the way for crypto exchanges to list MOONs for trading. According to Michael, such a listing would likely attract exchanges looking to boost their volumes.

Moreover, the potential user base for this native token is quite substantial. Reddit’s R/Cryptocurrency community, for instance, currently boasts over 6.6 million users. A listing of the token would potentially enable these users to trade MOONs directly on crypto exchanges.

Adding to the speculation of a possible listing is a recent hint from a Kraken customer support agent, who suggested that the team would be updated on these latest developments.

However, it’s crucial to note that these are speculative assertions. As Michael pointed out, the volatile and rapidly-evolving nature of the crypto space means situations can change quickly.

The listing of MOONs on top-tier exchanges, while currently unconfirmed, presents an exciting possibility for the future of Reddit’s native token. With this development, Reddit is one step closer to further integrating blockchain technology into its platform, which could redefine the way users interact with the website and each other.

How Do You Earn MOONs:

Moons are distributed monthly according to each user’s contributions within the r/Cryptocurrency community(posts,comments,etc..). Users will earn moons based on the karma points they accumulated during each month, but the final decision is up to the community.
