What is Discord?
Discord is a popular communication platform designed for creating communities, hosting discussions, and facilitating real-time communication, primarily in the form of text, voice, and video chat. It was initially developed for gamers but has since evolved into a versatile tool used by a wide range of communities, including Forex and day traders. It has gained popularity due to its user-friendly interface, versatility, and ability to bring people together in virtual communities.
