Moderators Claimed They Were Unaware

On October 17th, Reddit announced the end of the community points program due to scalability issues. Following this announcement, some individuals serving as moderators claimed they were unaware of this decision. However, blockchain data suggests that certain moderators sold substantial amounts of Moon tokens just before the announcement.

According to the data, one moderator converted 109,000 Moon tokens into approximately $23,000 worth of Ethereum by conducting two separate transactions.

Another moderator, “rider_of_the_storm,” appears to have transferred 346,422 Moon tokens valued at over $69,000 to another address just 17 minutes before Reddit’s announcement.

Finally, shortly after Reddit publicly announced the discontinuation of the program, the moderators released a statement from their joint account, stating that they were informed about the end of the Community Points program one hour before it was publicly announced.
