Project Overview

Redd is a decentralized social tipping platform that allows you to tip, donate, and fund your favorite content creators, humanitarian programs, and social causes through all major social media networks. It utilizes ReddCoin, a fast, cheap, and reliable digital social currency that is the primary vehicle used to bring value back to humanity.

Not many are aware that Redd is an organization 100% run by volunteers. Up until this point, no member of the official team earns a salary or are paid for their efforts to see this project become a reality. The team is made up of passionate Reddheads who just want to make an impact on the world.

Latest Updates

New Rebrand

Formerly known as Reddcoin, with the new rebrand to Redd, the project will be making a conscious effort to reposition themselves towards a more consumer friendly, front-facing user base. Moving forward, Redd will focus on making global change a reality by putting value back into humanity and social interaction. This movement we are creating is meant to welcome anyone and empower everyone.

With the launch of this new brand, expect various existing products and tools to be gradually updated with the new look and feel of Redd. Stay tuned for more updates by following us on Twitter and Medium.

Revamped ReddID

Redd is currently working on a new version of its ReddID, which will not only serve as your username but also as your social wallet. This will allow anyone to receive ReddCoin over a variety of social media networks with ONE simple user ID. As a result, Redd will empower content creators, social causes, and humanitarian programs to do what they love and get rewarded for their efforts—all without a middleman.

Previously, Redd launched a beta version of ReddID, which has received huge adoption. With that, the platform soon experienced major scalability issues. Since then the project has looked to rebuild the feature from the ground up to ensure that this monumental tool would be able to grow and be adopted by billions of people across the globe.


As Redd looks to push their message of global inclusion and personal empowerment, the project plans to start a self-funded organization to help facilitate positive change in the world and give back to those who have done so much for humanity.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us.

  • Why did you change the name from Reddcoin to Redd?

    As we transition towards a more consumer-friendly brand removing the word “coin” opens up new opportunities for what Redd is about and represents. It also eliminates the connotations associated with being a cryptocurrency or tech-oriented product.

  • What does this new rebrand mean for the project?

    Although our team and community know exactly who we are and what we represent, the rebrand represents a shift towards bringing those values and intentions to the foreground for all to see.

  • When will ReddID launch?

    There is no set date for the completion of ReddID but we are hoping to launch an early version of it before the end of the year.

  • When will you launch a mobile app?

    This is in our future plans but there is no set date for the launch of this feature. Subscribe to our social media channels for future announcements.

  • What is POSV v2?

    POSV v2 is the second major upgrade to the Proof-of-Stake-Velocity algorithm of the ReddNetwork. It was designed to incentivize ownership (staking) and activity (velocity). The upgrade also included a self-funding mechanism which reserves a portion of new coins generated for on-going development of the project. Click here to see more info on POSV v2

  • How has Redd funded the project up until now?

    Over the last couple of years, Redd has been funded solely by the sweat equity put in from it's volunteer-based team and most importantly the donations and generosity fuelled by our community.

  • Why does it take so long for Redd to launch new features?

    Given that we are a small team of volunteers, most features and products we plan on creating will take time because of the limited resources we have at our disposal. With the most recent network upgrade to POSV v2, we expect future project launches to roll out more quickly.

  • Does Redd plans on raising money in the future?

    With the recent upgrade to POSV v2 and the ability for the project to now support self-funded operations by the ReddNetwork, we anticipate more streamlined rollouts, and a lesser, if not eliminated, need for external funding.
