June 19, 2020 Reddit partners with Ethereum Foundation to source second layer scaling solution.

The social network platform Reddit has partnered with the Ethereum Foundation to source a second-layer scaling solution for its recently announced ‘Community Points’ program. The company announced the news via a post on Thursday, inviting prospective candidates to share demos with the r/Ethereum community by July 31, with the caveat that demos must be able to simulate the scaling of community points for 100,000 users. Aside from scalability, the company has outlined the need for projects to demonstrate security, decentralization, interoperability, and usability. All demos will apparently be reviewed by September at which point Reddit plans to issue an update on the process.
