How to buy A Reddit Avatar NFT and store it in Trust Wallet

You can now purchase, send and store your unique Reddit Avatars NFT to Trust Wallet!

Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to show you exactly how.

Two years ago, Reddit launched their own ‘Avatar Builder’, allowing Reddit users to create their own unique avatars to personalise their online profiles and have their own unique visual Reddit identity.
Two years on, Reddit has empowered artists by creating a ‘Collectible Avatars’ storefront, where Reddit users can purchase custom avatars from these artists.

There are 3 key features of these NFTs:

  1. They are available for purchase, and artists will be paid for each Collectible Avatar sold.

  2. Collectible Avatars are backed by blockchain technology (on Polygon $MATIC), giving purchasers a license to use the art – on and off Reddit.

  3. You do not need crypto to purchase these avatars, nor are they being put up for auction. Each avatar has been priced at a fixed amount and is purchasable with normal fiat currency like $USD.

How to purchase your own Reddit Avatar and transfer them into Trust Wallet for free, in 4 easy steps:

If you’re already a seasoned Redditor, skip to step 2. If you’re a Redditor AND have Trust Wallet, skip to step 3!

Step 1:

Firstly, you’re going to have to be a Redditor (have a Reddit account). You can easily sign up here: https://www.reddit.com/ it’s free! Oh, and be sure to follow us on reddit too while you’re at it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/trustapp/. For this tutorial, we’re using the Reddit app you can download it from any app store.

Then, just join the r/CollectableAvatars community. Here: https://www.reddit.com/r/CollectibleAvatars/


You’re also going to need a Trust Wallet! Trust Wallet is the most diverse and inclusive mobile wallet on the market. It supports 70 blockchains and 12 types of NFTs, totalling over 8 MILLION different digital assets (that’s more than Metamask and Coinbase combined. 4 times). And, that’s not all it does! But, what’s most important now, is that it can safely store your new Reddit Avatar NFT!

Step 2:

You’ll have to set up your ‘vault’ - this is Reddit’s version of crypto storage. You’ll see the ‘vault’ tab when you click on your profile image in the app (image 1). All it requires is a password to setup, so pick a good one - but one that you wont forget! (image 2 & 3).

Step 3:

Purchase your chosen avatar! Head to your profile and select either ‘style avatar’ or ‘shop avatar’ - whichever one you see. It will take you to the avatar shop.
Then, the hardest step… picking your avatar! There is a lot to chose from, so good luck picking your favourite from all of them! (image 1).

Once you’ve selected your avatar, tap on it and then tap on ‘buy now’ and follow the steps to complete your purchase. Then, your avatar will become your new Reddit avatar! You’ll see it in your ‘vault’. (image 2 & 3)

Step 4:

Send your Avatar to Trust Wallet! These Reddit Avatars live on the Polygon Blockchain. Trust Wallet supports many different NFT types including Polygon, so it’s perfect for storing your new NFT.

Head to your Reddit profile, tap on your Avatar image. You’ll then see a grey box asking you for the ‘recipients wallet address’. (image 1) This is where you’re going to want to add your Trust Wallet Polygon address. This is super simple to find.

In your Trust Wallet app, head to the main token page as you open the app and ensure you can see Polygon in the list of tokens. If you can’t, tap on the top right hand side of the screen and search for ‘Polygon’ - it will appear in the top of the list. (image 1 & 2).
Then tap into it and then, tap on ‘receive’. You’ll see your long Polygon address underneath the QR code. (image 3 & 4).


Simply copy the long address using the copy button provided in the Trust Wallet app, and then paste it back in the box asking for your wallet address in the Reddit app. A green tick will appear is the address is correct, then hit ‘transfer’. (image 1 & 2).

The transfer to Trust Wallet is completely free of charge!

After a couple of minutes your new Reddit Avatar NFT will appear in your Trust Wallet! (image 3 & 4).

Success!
