Important message from Discord

Unlike many other free applications, Discord makes no money from advertising. And because we don't make money from ads, advertising buyers are not our customers. You are our customer ! And that means we have to make Discord the best it can be for you. We are always listening your comments. We have delivered a ton of requested features by users to date, and we're not stopping there.

In short, there are no invasive ads on the platform. So how does Discord generate revenue?


Monetization of Discord

If there's no advertising like on other platforms, you want to know how discord makes money?

To make money, Discord offers a subscription called Discord nitrowhich costs between 5 $ and 10 $ per month. With annual subscription prices of 50 $ and 100 $ per year. This money is earned by Discord and goes straight into their pockets!

What are the advantages of this subscription?

  • Customizable tag (the # at the end of the pseudo 🙂 )
  • Animated PP (with a GIF)
  • The GO LIVE streams in 1080p 60fps in classic
  • The screen sharing with 720p 60 fps or the 1080p 30 fps.
  • The customizable emojis can be used with any Discord
  • Increases file size that can be sent up to 100MB with nitro at 10$ and 50MB with 5$.
  • Profile badge on your discord profile.

How do boost servers work?

For the nitro discord at 10$, you can boost a server of your choice (changeable every week). You get a gem on the server next door your username with the date of your first boost, if you boost another server it will fall back to 0.

The boost server can do certain things. Here is the discord server boost:

Discord boost levels

Level 1:

  • 50 extra emotes on the server
  • quality audio up to 128 Kbps
  • Server icon animated (gif possible)
  • The invitation links we a customizable background
  • Stream on the dispo server in 720p and 60fps

Level 2:

  • 50 more emotes so it goes up to 150
  • 256 Kpbs for the audio quality
  • banner server top left
  • 50 MB upload on the server for all members
  • Stream on server in 1080p and 60 fps

  • + 100 emotes 250 in all
  • 384 Kbps for the audio quality
  • Customizable invitation link (with the nickname for example ^^)
  • 100MB upload for all members on the server

It used to be possible to play the game for free, but with the latest update, they've decided not to renew the game in October 2019.
