It later expanded this to other communities in May 2020 with “Moons” for r/Cryptocurrency subreddit and “Bricks” for r/FortniteBR, all of which are on the Ethereum testnet.

Discord also recently hinted that it could integrate support for crypto assets on its platform although this has met with fierce opposition from the site’s users.
