Engadgets has long been known for its game development platform, which has long allowed developers to make a living in a largely unpaid environment.
In recent years, though, the platform has begun to lose users.
In 2018, its share price dropped nearly 20% and its market cap fell from $6.2 billion to $3.5 billion.
Discord, which was founded in 2015, has since grown to more than 40 million users.
The platform has been around since 2007 and boasts a wide range of games, including a few of the most popular games in the mobile industry, including League of Legends and Overwatch.
Now, it has begun an effort to revitalize its business.
In a recent update, Discord CEO Adam Taylor announced a new initiative called Discord Analytics.
The plan is to add an API to the platform that allows developers to track the revenue they make from their apps, in addition to other metrics.
The goal is to create a better business case for developers.
“If you can make your app profitable, you’ll probably want to sell more of your app, and this will help you make money,” Taylor told Engadgest.
“I’m sure that’s why you saw the spike in the app market.”
The new revenue model will give Discord a new source of income, but it also comes at a price.
According to Taylor, Discord’s app market cap is currently around $2.5 million, with its average revenue per user in the $1,000 range.
“The market cap of Discord today is roughly $3 billion, but that number may soon drop to $2 billion,” he said.
In a statement, Discord said that it is working to add the revenue tracking functionality to the app, but would not disclose how much it will cost developers.
The company will use the revenue to pay for developers to stay in the company.
It has also begun a fund to help developers transition from Slack to Discord.
