The reflection of community health

Bitcoin.com product director Crobin Fraser He suggested that the least number of token users in the r / CryptoCurrency community reflects serious management issues:

“An impressive example of the state of cryptocurrencies on Reddit. Communities devoted to Bitcoin and Blockchain are being kept from their mods from not using tokens. The same mods draw the censorship line in / r / Bitcoin … @reddit. You have a serious problem. “

A reddit user entered two days ago Twitter Referencing MOON community tokens after his podcast was removed from r / CryptoCurrency and asked to post on r / cryptocurrencymemes.

Twitter user @etherchain_org saw the comparison as a positive sign that a community token should be added to the r / Bitcoin community with 1.44 million subscribers.

Are there any bigger plans?

The system is currently only available for r / FortNiteBR and r / CryptoCurrency, but may be available to the entire 450 million Reddit user base. Community Point System sponsor Tencent has more than 800 million monthly users, and it is speculated that if this test is successful, this could connect more than 1 billion new users to cryptocurrencies.
