“Discord has quickly become one of our most important digital communities, so we jumped at the opportunity to be among the first brands to roll out an app for the platform’s new directory. Our server members value direct engagement with our brand and the opportunity to be part of a premiere group, and the StockX DropBot makes it easy for them to keep up with the latest releases, prove their industry expertise through trivia challenges, and even score some heat with exclusive giveaways.”
