Discord is valued at 1.65 _billion_ dollars.

What kind of person can look at that and go "ah, yes, this free chat service is totally not gonna screw us out of private data for profit"?


@spacekookie most probably, yes. Although there are a lot of paying users for premium features, and they also distribute games now.

@deathy The few people actually buying a subscription aren't paying for server costs though

@spacekookie @deathy Not only paying for servers, but also salaries AND dividends for their shareholders. Including Tencent (owner of wechat, and helped the Chinese gov to spy on wechat users)

In 2015 or 2016, discord pretended they don't sell data and their business model is selling goodies… Sure, seems legit, you pay salaries, dividends and servers/nertwork fees, by selling stickers and pins. The lamest excuse I ever heard 🤦‍♂️
