March Mod Announcements 📣 Note on NFT Art Posts, Active / New Mods, Resource List

Hey everyone 👋 welcome to March! Here are a few housekeeping items that I will combine into a single post.

Note on NFT Art Posts

There's been a ton of excitement around NFTs on Ethereum lately. NFT stands for "Non-Fungible Token" – aka a digital object with provenance (who owned it when), and markets built into it, all enabled by the Ethereum blockchain. While the concept has been around for a few years, they've really started taking off in USD terms and public awareness. Learn more about NFTs here:

While we are very happy to see artists exploring new forms of ownership and patronage, the r/ethereum frontpage has become very full of artists sharing their work. Therefore, we've decided to start removing NFT art posts in order to keep r/ethereum as a tech and protocol focused space. Discussion on NFTs and their place in the Ethereum economy, or news from NFT companies, will still be permitted. A few places you can check out to post your work:

  • r/NFT is a great place to share your work and connect with other creators
  • many of the NFT marketplaces have lively community discords (Zora, OpenSea, Nifty Gateway, many others)

Active / New Mods
