Discord Partners get Discord Nitro for free, even more customization options, higher quality voice servers, and monetary rewards if they gain enough followers to be rewarded premium status. Discord Partners are selected by application from people who already use Discord and have formed active communities on their servers. Most Discord Partners are already well-known content creators on Twitch or YouTube, though Discord also works with non-profit organizations. For game developers and other content creators, verification is essential to attract the most fans to your server. Verification confirms to fans that you are who you claim to be and also unlocks the same customization options and voice support as Discord Partners. Verifcation is open to game developers and publishers, professional esports teams, and musical artists. You can apply for verification on Discord’s website. Developers can also use Discord’s Developer Portal to integrate applications, create and manage teams, and learn more about the tools that Discord provides for developers. This free service is absolutely vital for indie developers who want to bring into the business.
