Reddit is auctioning three non-fungible tokens powered by the ethereum blockchain on July 1.

The tokens are called "CryptoSnoos NFTs" and feature the famous alien mascot of the social media site. The Block was first to report.

"Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own a piece of Reddit history-snag a CryptoSnoo NFT," the website said.

The three CryptoSnoos NFTs are named Original Block, Helium, and Snooprematic.

All were minted on June 17 and are on sale on NFT platform OpenSea.

According to Reddit, Original Block is inspired by Reddit's characteristic Snoo caricature. Helium, meanwhile, is associated with the "contemporary art movement" and "everyday objects that are blue and sparkle." Snooprematic is influenced by a "geometric vocabulary."

Reddit's NFT called CryptoSnoos.

The current highest bid for Original Block is $3,959.82 (R55,437.48), for Helium it's $1,979.91 (R27,718.74), and for Snooprematic, it's $1,394.07 (R19,516.98).

Once purchased, buyers will get access to a URL that will take them to a webpage dedicated to their NFTs.

NFTs are unique digital assets secured on a blockchain. Each NFT has its own signature, which can be verified in the public ledger and cannot be duplicated.

NFTs have soared in popularity in 2021. Artwork, tweets, and news columns turned into digital art have fetched millions of dollars at auction.
