Users are spread over a ton of servers, more than 750 of which are verified by Discord. Fortnite holds the title of the most popular Discord, verified or otherwise, with a whopping 180,000 users. Other popular verified servers include ones for Vainglory, Rainbow 6 Siege, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Critical Ops, and Unreal Tournament.

In June of last year, TechCrunch reported that Discord garnered around $50 million in funding to expand its services. Index Ventures led that funding round, followed by Institutional Venture Partners, Spark Capital, Greylock Partners, and Benchmark. Discord has only grown since then—the company now has more than 100 employees.

Once a MOBA game developer, Discord refocused to a voice and text chat tool in 2015. New features have continuously rolled out since then, including video chat and screen sharing. Discord has wedged itself into gamer culture, and the service has been ubiquitous with community building and communication in the video game and esports industry.
