Reddit is one of the most popular social media platforms with 267.5 million weekly active users. Redditors with similar interests come together in different discussion forums called subreddits. For the crypto community, the platform is one of the go-to places to start discussions, share memes, news, opinions, etc. This article mentions 8 of Reddit’s most popular crypto forums.
There are subreddits for certain projects as well as for general discussions. Some of the crypto communities are particularly popular and have millions of users.  

1. r/CryptoCurrency

This is the largest crypto subreddit with 7.9 million members. Along with posts started by users, r/CryptoCurrency features frequent AMA (Ask Me Anything) threads and daily discussions. It has a native token called MOON, launched in 2020 as part of Reddit’s “Community Points” initiative, presenting blockchain-based user rewards. MOON is designed to allow members to tip other users for their posts and comments, vote on governance polls, etc. In 2023, Reddit ended Community Points because of scalability issues and regulatory concerns. After this, the r/CryptoCurrency page moderators announced continuing blockchain-based community prizes separately. Although earning Moons hasn’t been available on the forum, r/CryptoCurrency is working on restarting the process, according to the page.

2. r/ethereum

The r/ethereum forum is a top place for those looking for Ethereum-related updates, analysis, news, and discussions. It’s the official Reddit community of the Ethereum blockchain, moderated by the development team.

This is a general subreddit where beginners ask questions about Bitcoin, like how it works, how to store the coin, what services to use for payments, etc.  On r/BitcoinBeginners, there's a warning not to reply to messages from unknown people.

Final Notes 

Reddit is a popular place for the crypto community to learn, and engage in discussions. Often you’ll find quality content here, but there are also hidden promotions and fraud attempts. It’s better to take group recommendations with a pinch of salt, do research, and not trust anyone with the information about your crypto wallet, and investment decisions.
