What's the case for a Discord IPO?
The social network for gamers Discord only held talks with Microsoft about a takeover by the Windows publisher towards the end of April last year. However, the negotiations fell through. Discord rejected the $10 billion offer given by Microsoft.
Instead, Discord has since unveiled plans to offer Discord shares for sale on the stock market, according to the Wall Street Journal. Numerous financial analysts expect that we can all still invest in Discord in 2022. We will keep you updated as soon as there is any new information about trading Discord shares on the stock exchange.
How can I invest in Discord shares before the Discord IPO?
In the past, it was difficult for small investors to invest in shares that were not yet traded on the stock exchange. Fortunately, today the situation is different. There are now numerous brokers on the market that offer you so-called pre-IPO shares.
However, when buying IPO shares, you need to pay attention to the lock-up period. For most newly traded securities on the stock exchange, this is 90 or 180 days. You cannot resell your shares within this period.
Is it worth investing in Discord?
Yes, investing in Discord can be worthwhile. Because Discord is so immensely popular, it is able to steadily increase the number of its users every year. This is not only because the app is completely free, but it also works on many platforms. So, you can use the social network's services for gaming via your PC, cell phone, as well as your PlayStation.
As the number of users increases, so does the amount of opportunity Discord has to generate more revenue. The company currently generates this through voluntary subscriptions that users can sign up for. But the sale of games via Discord servers is also one of the sources of income.
