Discord is also a heavily VC-funded company that will soon feel the need to monetize.

I believe they won’t limit message history to monetize though. That’s their main advantage over Slack. Slack makes it impossible to run large, non-commercial communities. Also, discord has nitro membership for some monetization. That along with partnership with games if needed should be enough monetization for them to allow offering unlimited chat history.
