Reddit is trying out nonfungible token (NFT) profile pictures on its platform, with the news coming simply a week or so after Twitter executed a similar feature.

The well-known online media stage had around 430 million month-to-month clients in 2021 and is apparently chipping away at an NFT profile picture execution that will empower clients to set their profile picture to any NFT with an attached picture.

In an interview with TechCrunch on Thursday, Reddit representative Tim Rathschmidt expressed: “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.”

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

Prior to the week, an application engineer posted a banner from Reddit advancing the feature, proposing the tests are now very much progressed.

Twitter additionally presented NFT profile pictures last week, accessible to Twitter Blue endorsers on iOS. Notwithstanding, NFTs have confronted significant reactions from gamers and Web2 engineers as of late. A day after the launch, a GitHub giver shared a program augmentation that naturally hinders Twitter accounts utilizing NFT profile pictures.

Reddit has been trying different things with different initiatives around NFTs for quite a while. It even set up a devoted page for NFT-related exercises at nft.reddit.com.

In May 2020, the organization presented cryptocurrency tokens for its r/Cryptocurrency and r/Fortnite people group. Those tokens were called MOON and BRICK and depended on Ethereum standards.
