What Is Discord?

Discord is a communications app that lets users share files, voice, video, and text chat. It has over 150 million active users as of 2021.

On the platform, users can create and join different communities called “servers.” Aimed at gamers, Discord is also used in online education, remote work, trading and entertainment.

With 6.7 million active servers as of 2021, Discord is considered as a potential competitor for enterprise communication platforms such as Slack and Microsoft Teams.

Why Invest in Discord?

Rapid sustainable growth

Discord has seen a significant increase in monthly active users over the past 5 years, reaching 150 million as of 2022 – equivalent to half the population of the entire United States. This growth has also translated into a decrease in the market share of established messaging apps such as Meta's Messenger and WhatsApp.

Interestingly, 78% of Discord users indicate that they primarily use the platform for non-gaming activities or for a combination of gaming and non-gaming activities.

Rapidly growing revenue

Discord's revenue comes mainly from its Nitro subscription service, which offers enhanced features for users, and has seen strong growth in recent years. The company has announced plans to monetize through advertising, which could provide a significant new source of revenue. Other paid services include game distribution and server boosting.

The market potential is still big

Despite the significant growth in participation in online communities, the penetration of tools like Discord remains low. In 2010, the Internet had a population of approximately 2 billion people, with only 17% of them participating in online communities, equating to 340 million community members. There are now 5 billion people online, with 76% of them participating in an online community, representing 3.8 billion community members. 1.8 billion of them are using Facebook groups. Thus, there is a significant opportunity for growth in the market for communication platforms like Discord.

Discord is capitalizing on the trend of niche communities on social networks. As more people join, they seek out small, specialized communities that fit their interests. Discord may capture a significant share of the social network market.

Discount

The current secondary market price is around $9.7B valuation and provides a 36% discount to the last round. Back in 2021 Discord rejected a $12B purchase offer from Microsoft, focusing on its own growth and the potential entry into the stock market at some point.

Opportunities ahead

While the company has a revenue model that relies on a combination of subscriptions and commissions, Discord is one of the most under-monetized consumer-facing services per user. The company is investigating new strategies, experimenting with different subscription models, and exploring microtransactions and payment infrastructure to increase monetization.
