Hello, Ethereum world!
Reddit admin u/jarins here, with some exciting news to share today: Reddit has teamed up with the Ethereum Foundation to establish Reddit’s first-ever blockchain partnership!
As Reddit continues to grow with more than 50 million daily users and hundreds of thousands of communities, the platform has long maintained a decentralized ethos by empowering users to create, govern, and grow their own communities. Through this partnership, we will be increasing our commitment to blockchain, accelerating scaling and resources for the Ethereum ecosystem, and bringing the value and independence of blockchain technology to millions of redditors.
In many ways, this collaboration started with the Scaling Bake-Off that we hosted in this community with the Ethereum Foundation. In this new stage of our partnership, immediate efforts will be focused on bringing Ethereum to Reddit-scale production. Our intention is to help accelerate the progress being made on scaling and develop the technology needed to launch large-scale applications like Community Points on Ethereum. The scaling technology developed through this partnership will be open-sourced and publicly available for anyone to use.
We introduced Community Points last year to give more ownership and control back to users through decentralized technology. Built on Ethereum, Community Points represent a user’s ownership in a community and rewards them for their individual contributions (such as posts and comments). This project is our first attempt at utilizing decentralized technology to empower individuals to have a sense of accountability and more ownership in the communities that they create and contribute to. Community Points are currently in beta on the Rinkeby network and are being tested in r/CryptoCurrency and r/FortNiteBR.
Our blockchain efforts will be led by Reddit's Crypto team (hi!). We are currently hiring great backend engineers who want to build the decentralized Internet. If you’re interested in solving tough problems like scaling and bringing blockchain to millions of users, send me a PM or apply directly on Reddit’s careers page -- we’d love to talk to you!

Dear SCP Redditors, I have one question is the SCP Foundation better than the GOC? Your opinion please
I thought back to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince that every new British Prime Minister is made aware of the Wizarding world. I wonder if the same can be said for the foundation and other World Leaders. In the SCP Universe, I would imagine after Joe Biden is inaugurated he gets a visit from Foundation representatives to get a full explanation of the foundation's existence and what they do and what his government's role in the foundation is. This would not just be for America but I'm sure all newly elected/inaugurated rulers would get the same briefing.
I been in the middle of enough of these damn "Haters" and "Shills" debates knowing the bravado on BOTH sides is stifling.
There is a specific frequent poster on this sub that CONFIDENTLY beleives we will see Hawkeye content by March. So confident that he was willing to bet credits on his faith.
So I'm calling him, and anyone else with this faith out.
IF we DO NOT see new content by March 1st, then he will donate to the Stan Lee Foundation (link below)
IF, of course, we DO see content I, THE Aviator wayyyyy over 5000, will donate two premium skins worth ($28 USD), and provide receipt in a follow-up post.
I encourage anyone that frequents and gives a damn about this game and helping others to participate. But PLEASE participate smartly, and keep the uncertainty of this pandemic in mind.
EDIT: Some folks astutely called out the timeline of the bet, to include more days in March. The person that this bet was intended for confirmed confidence in a Feb release so the date will remain for now.
EDIT: Bet Specifics: Any Clint Barton Hawkeye content released that includes the character, will alone be enough for my side to lose the bet. Releasing Clone Labs or any Omega Level...whatever will not be enough alone. I will also donate if Black Panther comes first.
Week long event is live now, all donations go to Prevent Cancer Foundation.
I don’t understand how someone can give a fair review on a foundation after applying concealer to half(or more) of their face. That bothers me and I immediately exit the video. Anyone else?
So AGDQ 2021 Online has finally, after an exhaustingly long week, has concluded with currently a total of $2,758,847.40, raised for Awesome Games Done Quick (And still counting slightly, I'll update when they turn off donations in a day or two).
Link for ending donation speech ---- Here!
But with this years total, that means that Games Done Quick has now raised over 28 MILLION Dollars for charities across the globe since it started 10 years ago.
Give it up for the entire GDQ staff!
Give it up to the sound and video techs!
Give it up to the runners and commentators of each game!
And of course, give it up to YOU! The watchers and donators. Without you we wouldn't of raised total we did!
This year has been phenomenal! <3
What has your favourite runs been?! What made you laugh and chuckle the most?! What game surprised and shocked you the most?!
Summer Games Done Quick 2021 (SGDQ) dates to be announced Soon™
I am a 20-year-old as well but I was not born or raised here. I loved the independent spirit of people in the west and thus moved to Canada to study. But oh lord how naive I was! It's ridiculous how almost no one my age has any ability to think critically. This is probably the result of being coddled up all their lives that they don't develop any sort of ability to weigh the risks. And how sheep-like they are. Fucking all of them are far left, socialism loving, Trudeau daddy give them more fucktards that believe whatever the media tells them to believe. I have been against all this theatre since the beginning and it's beyond frustrating how they can't still think anything at all. Doesn't matter if it's a Gender studies major or Pure Math, all of them wants to save the 80-year-old grandmas not understanding that they are killing millions of kids in Africa and India and destroying thousands of lives. And I don't understand what the obsession here to live longer is. You live, you laugh, you have fun, you grow old and then you fucking die. Where's the surprise in that?
The society has lowered itself to the lowest common denominators. Not just accommodate them but to be like them. That person with autoimmune needs to stay at home, so we will make everyone else do the same. And oh don't you forget to wear the most useless, dehumanising thing ever - The holy mask. This is the slave morality that Nietzsche warned us about. There's also definitely the element of lack of belief in God here that makes them worship the government figures and for the first time in their lives have given them a purpose i.e. to make everyone fucking obey them.
Why the rant today? Because I just read a few chats in my university's facebook group where these fucktards were discussing if the university would open in fall 2021 and what they were agreeing to was that university can't take the risk and how if they do they might make vaccines compulsory and only open with very strict measures. There have been 4 deaths in the province from covid since the beginning. FOUR. So they can shove the vaccines up their arse. But as an international student, there's literally nothing I can do but to follow their lead. I just completed the 14-day useless quarantine because I travelled to a different province IN THE SAME GODFORSAKEN COUNTRY and I can't take any risk because they'll just send me back to my country. All I can say is WHAT THE ABSOLUTE FUCK!!!
Edit: For me Maybe Making SCP-239 meet SCP-343,
making SCP-239 destroy SCP-682 if it works
Making SCP-166 use SCP-2203.
Making non human SCP using SCP-2203 (Especially SCP-173, who thinks blood is "Love Juice" according to the tale SCP-173 Christmas eve)
See If SCP-343 can see SCP-2020
I've been wanting to try powder foundation and I am curious about what everyone likes and which skin type that particular product works for. I would love to discover a new one I haven't heard of, too!
