Discord’s primary revenue stream is the Nitro subscription service. The subscription gives a few useful benefits to its users, although most casual users will be satisfied with the free version.
There are over 2.2 billion active gamers in the world which generated a whopping 108.9 billion in game revenues in 2017. What’s a better game based business model than a one which connects these gamers, let them have a voice chat while playing, and help them make communities and interact with their gaming friends while not playing?
Discord is a freeware software dedicated to all this.
Discord is an all in one text, voice, and video chat application dedicated to the gamers around the world. This free application focuses on a hassle-free voice and text chat experience during the games and building of communities outside the game.
When using Discord, you participate in themed servers which can be created by anyone logged in on the application. The same servers can be joined by others who have the invite or participation link. The server admins can host text and voice channels which are used by the members to discuss different topics. Even though Discord’s target market is gamers, the platform is used by many other interest groups ranging from music, art, entrepreneurship, to spirituality, etc.
