How to Buy & Sell r/cryptocurrency Moons on RCPSwap?

Moons are ERC-20 tokens that are rewarded to Reddit users for their contributions to the r/CryptoCurrency subreddit.

So, many Reddit users are now confused about how they can buy and sell their Moons. This article will explain how to buy and sell moons step-by-step.

We are doing this mainly because Reddit Vault has no option to transfer Moon tokens directly to any other crypto wallet. Also, users will have to import the Moon token into their MetaMask account. Here is the contract address. Lastly, they should switch to Arbitrum Nova from Ethereum Mainnet. News users can see how to do this from Step 7 to Step 9 in Part 1 (Buy section) of this article.
