Reddit's Gen 3 Avatars Are Coming
Reddit confirmed that the highly anticipated Gen 3 Avatar launch will be held tomorrow April 11.
- Drop will be held in Reddit avatar shop
- Launch is slated for the afternoon (ET)
The announcement comes with a sneak peek for enthusiasts to get a glimpse of what to expect.
Rumored artists joining the lineup include a mix of newcomers and returning favorites. New artists, such as Dashikka, are expected to make a splash while returning creators like Rojom and TheFattyBagz will continue to delight fans.
❗Why It Matters
The launch of Gen 3 Avatars is causing excitement in the community, as its Gen1 and Gen2 Avatars collections took the market by storm in the summer of 2022, temporarily dominating volume traded in the market and creating a notable expansion in the Polygon NFT ecosystem. Despite waning interest in the general NFT market, Reddit remains committed to some level of involvement in web3 and tomorrow will mark the beginning of a new chapter for the platform's future, which likely includes its own marketplace for avatar trading in the future.
