Reddit Moderators Dismissed After Being Accused of $MOON Token Insider Trading


Moderators in charge of Reddit’s largest crypto topic have been dismissed following charges that they sold off the subreddit’s native MOON cryptocurrency just minutes before the platform discontinued its crypto rewards scheme.


According to reports and a comment on r/Cryptocurrency, “all the moderators who sold Moons before the announcement have already been removed from the mod team.”

MOON was originally available for distribution, trading, and spending as part of Reddit’s blockchain-based community points scheme. Last Tuesday, however, it was revealed that the program would be terminated on November 8.


One hour before the announcement, Reddit management apparently warned moderators in charge of the r/Cryptocurrency thread of the impending cancellation. According to cryptosleuths, three moderators sold their shares within an hour of the news breaking publicly.

The dismissed moderators are said to have sold at least 456,353 MOON tokens for $92,000. The price of Moon tokens decreased by 21% before the announcement and by 85% after the cancellation was announced.

Reddit said in announcing the move that the initiative lacked “an outsized commitment to resources.” It wrote, “Though the moderators and communities that supported Community Points have been incredible partners — as it’s evolved, the product is no longer set up to scale.”

Many members on the r/Cryptomoons subreddit are still unsure what to do with their tokens, while others are seeking to devise a solution that would allow them to continue using Moon Tokens without the involvement of Reddit.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.

We thankyou for the on-going support our readers have bestowed monetarily.
