💡 What is MOON?!

MOON is an ERC-20 token on Arbitrum Nova that r/Cryptocurrency Reddit admins launched in May 2020 under the Community Points Project for users' contributions to r/CryptoCurrency. They serve as a reward and a unit of ownership in the subreddit. Moons are independent of Reddit and managed by audited smart contracts that handle all functions such as balances, transfers, and distribution/claiming.

What makes MOON unique?

  1. Real rewards for the community: Moons are distributed in a fair manner based on users' karma points earned through contributions to r/CryptoCurrency subreddit. They can be used to unlock features such as banner renting, tipping, and purchasing special memberships.
  2. Community empowerment: Moons allow users to vote on governance polls that influence how the community is governed and how Moons are distributed.
  3. Proof of reputation: Moons are a proof of reputation and contribution in the r/CryptoCurrency community. Users earn more Moons for their contributions, resulting in more influence in the community.
  4. Burn mechanism: Moons can be permanently burned in two ways: when users purchase premium membership or redeem them for Reddit coins. If purchased with Moons, they are sent directly to the burn address, while if purchased with cash, the admins burn Moons from the Community Tank on the user's behalf. New methods of burning Moons may be implemented in the future.
