Over the years, there has been a rapid growth in social media with new platforms available for all kinds of social interactions. The evolution has created many intimate and common goal-oriented social communities. It’s not surprising that Discord is among the rising platforms for chatting and hanging out with like-minded people.
Discord was launched in 2016 as a platform to improve communication among gamers. Since its inception, it has transformed and grown beyond its initial goal of connecting gamers to becoming the default platform where anyone can connect with their community of people. Discord allows users to join the different available services that function independently as communities. Users can scroll through the general hashtag-marked channels on the left-hand side of their screens. One significant advantage with Discord is that the platform is highly customizable, with admins having the privilege to allocate roles among members to moderate within their communities. Such unique features have left influencers, marketers, YouTubers, and others turning their focus to this new platform. One among such people is Gavin Mayo.
Gavin Mayo is a 19-year-old stock market fanatic from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Gavin was fascinated with the stock markets at the age of 13, and he could envision himself trading stocks as he got older. After watching a few YouTube videos and messing around with stocks, Gavin finally decided to take the plunge and be more involved. After his freshman year, he spent the next couple of years learning as much as he could while trading in class. However, since he was a college athlete, he could not fully commit to stocks. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, he had plenty of free time to focus on stocks and trading.
A social media millennial with a passion for teaching others, Gavin took to TikTok to educate other people on the stock markets. He gained over 100k followers on his TikTok account, after spending two months of constant four to six posts a day with daily live streaming attempts. Gavin’s attention to Discord was drawn by another big stock discord team with whom he worked for a while. After learning more about the potential of Discord, Gavin along with his friend Ali Saghi started their own Discord server. The main idea was to talk about stocks, crypto and teach financial literacy to a wider audience. His stock Discord attracted over 50k members in a month and currently has various chats and voice channels.
At present, Gavin’s Discord is among the most prominent stock discords globally. He views Discord as a platform with so much potential and advises others to rush and capitalize on it. Gavin is currently building Luxury Equities and stays up every night working on the business, writing educational documents, trading stocks, and engaging with his staff. He plans to move from Discord and create an app and website for investors to find the best stocks to invest in. He also hopes to start a hedge fund sometime in the future. Gavin is available on various social media platforms including Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, and YouTube.
