The chat app Discord has quickly become the de facto home for DAOs, the hottest new thing in crypto. DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) are working groups that come together with a shared purpose like investing in NFTs or building blockchain tools, and have no single overseer. Most of them function exclusively over Discord.
So it was a surprise to discover this week how many of Discord’s core users vociferously dislike crypto. On Monday, Discord founder Jason Citron tweeted an image teasing a possible Discord integration with crypto wallets MetaMask and WalletConnect.
The blowback from Discord users was loud and immediate. “Can’t wait to tell my friends that Discord is encouraging pyramid schemes at grand cost to the environment,” tweeted one user, encouraging people to cancel their subscriptions to Discord’s premium service Nitro. Another tweeted, “Discord needs to see a drop in revenue to impact their decisions NOW so this is the best time to cancel subs and move.”
