It's no secret that Discord is one of the most popular communication tools for young gamers and other online communities. It's estimated that there are over 250 million Discord users worldwide. As a result, many Web3 projects have decided to set up their Discord servers to connect with their communities.

However, running a Discord server is not without its risks. In recent years, there have been several high-profile cases of Discord NFT servers being hacked and infiltrated by malicious actors. This is a severe problem, as it can lead not only to the loss of sensitive data and the spread of malware and other harmful content. Not only that, but it can also permanently harm your project's reputation if your community gets a bad reputation for being unsafe.

So how can you protect your Discord NFT community? Let's find out.

Use Two-Factor Authentication

How to keep your discord community safe in 2023 - Enable Two factor Authentication

One of the best ways to protect your Discord server is to enable two-factor authentication (2FA). This extra layer of security requires users to input a code from their phone or another device in addition to their username and password. Two-Factor authentication makes it much harder for hackers to access your server, as they would need physical access to the device to log in.

Define Clear Roles and Permissions

Another way to keep your Discord server safe is to define clear roles and permissions. This means you should assign specific roles to specific users and then give each role different permissions. For example, it provides moderators the ability to ban users and delete messages but not the ability to access sensitive data. Doing this limits the damage that a hacker could cause if one does gain access to your server, as they will only be able to do what their specific role allows them to do.

Server members need to be guided into the right place and allowed only to do things that serve the purpose of them being on the Discord server.

Be Flexible and Unafraid to Enforce the Rules

Having a set of rules for your Discord server is essential, but you must be flexible enough to adapt those rules as needed. Things change constantly, and what might have been a harmless joke a few months ago could suddenly become offensive. Similarly, once a valuable community member, a user might suddenly start causing problems. Server members must know that your Discord server is not a place where moderators will tolerate any funny business.

Feel free to enforce the rules when necessary. If someone repeatedly breaks the rules, it's best to ban them from the server. This might seem harsh, but keeping the rest of the community safe is essential. It is of utmost importance that your server is

Use Bots and Moderation Tools

Several bots and moderation tools are available for Discord servers, which can be incredibly useful for keeping your server safe. For example, some bots can automatically delete offensive or harmful messages, and ones that can help you keep track of who is breaking the rules. Discord members engaged in any funny business will immediately be identified.

Another great example is the Verification Bot which you can customize based on how high you want to set the security of your server. You can require users to fill up a captcha or ask them to connect their crypto wallet to gain access to your Discord NFT server.

Using these tools can help to make your job as a moderator much more accessible, making it more likely that problems will be caught before they cause too much damage.

Keep an Eye on What's Going On

Even with all of the above measures in place, it's still important to keep an eye on what's going on in your Discord server. This means regularly checking in on conversations and looking through any logs or reports the bots or moderation tools have generated.

If you see something suspicious, don't hesitate to investigate further. It's better to be safe than sorry, and it's always better to catch a problem early on before it has a chance to cause too much damage.

Members engaged in stupid stuff in your Discord server need to be removed, and you must keep your eye as close to it as possible. Any explicit content, sexual content, adult content, inappropriate content, or anything that breaches the ground rules set in your server needs to be removed immediately. Discord servers are for people with.


Keeping your Discord NFT community safe is essential for protecting your project's reputation and ensuring that your community remains a thriving, positive place. Following the above tips can help ensure that your server is a safe and welcoming place for everyone.
