Discord rose to popularity with some major thanks due to the eruption of streaming fandoms, but the social platform has also succeeded at finding, planting, and nurturing solid roots in many creative, technical, and educational facets of digital culture. Whether you are a web3 enthusiast, a curious tourist, or prefer the “if it ain’t broke…” approach and are perfectly fine with web2, there is a Discord server for you.
Discord’s platform is so user friendly that many companies are even implementing it as a business connectivity tool, abandoning popular applications like Microsoft Teams or Slack. You can even hang out with your friends in voice chat, or video chat, and do pretty much anything that you’d do online, with them. Share your screen, game together, watch a movie, it’s completely up to you. The amount of versatility that Discord offers is unique.
The platform is ad free, customizable, and has plenty of plug-ins to explore. No sponsored posts, no curious feed algorithm, and no internet points. Discord users are not there for praise, they’re there for conversation. Want to join the conversation as well?
Head below to explore a few of our team’s favorite servers.
