DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that around 530 million messages are being sent daily through Discord application? That is remarkably 15 billion messages in a month from over 130 million registered users. This voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) was founded by Jason Citron in 2015. It has been in the industry for three years now and the application has already hit a major milestone. This communication platform is originally made and designed for gamers to allow them to connect with other gamers from all over the world through Discord server. As of May 2018, this communication platform has over 750 verified servers, having the 'Fortnite' server the largest with over 180,000 members.
There are also other non-game related servers on Discord such as servers for creatives and anime lovers. Interestingly, Discord has even gained more users after its partnership announcement with Xbox and Spotify earlier in 2018. The collaboration makes it convenient for Xbox and Discord users to link their accounts and check out what their friends are playing. Its popularity has also attracted some hate groups to join the Discord as well, but Discord has been working on removing them, and it has begun shutting down an infamous alt-right server after a rally in Virginia left one person dead. Discord has stated that these kinds of groups are not welcome to join Discord.
