The online news and entertainment service Reddit, whose users can share any kind of information with each other, was created in 2005. The site itself calls itself “the first page on the Internet” and this statement is quite justified. In the ranking of popular American sites, Reddit ranks sixth, and globally – 18th.
The site itself has a lot of sections called subreddits. They are dedicated to various topics, among which there are many related to cryptocurrencies. Subreddit subscribers can share content with each other, discuss it and vote on the posted posts. In fact, it is a social media platform where everyone can find a section by interests and a lot of like-minded people.
There are 12 sections on Reddit dedicated to blockchain and cryptocurrencies. The community is expanding rapidly and a few days ago the number of subscribers to the section dedicated to bitcoin r / Bitcoin exceeded 1.2 million. Other crypto subreddits, such as Monero, also have a large audience, where you can find information for example how to convert 1 xmr to btc.
For the entire cryptocurrency market, 2017 was a real test of strength, and accordingly, the attendance of crypto-subreddits was falling. However, traffic growth resumed, which could be a positive sign for the entire market and a signal for the formation of a bullish trend. According to CoinMarketCap, in 2018:
- the price of the first cryptocurrency went up sharply;
- other tokens began to rise in price.
Accordingly, the interest of the Reddit audience in cryptocurrencies has grown. In 2019-20, the growth of subscribers to cryptocurrency subreddits continued, which made r/Bitcoin the most popular crypto community with over a million audiences.
