Discogs, launched in 2000 by Kevin Lewandoski, has now reached more than 10 million total releases.

The world’s largest community-built database for music information launched its online marketplace service in 2002, allowing users to sell vinyl, CDs, cassettes and other forms of physical audio via the website. Over $200 million was spent by users on the site in 2017 alone.

Now Discogs boasts 4.9 million active users and over 400.000 contributors who add around 4.000 to 5.000 listings to its database every day.

I feel incredibly proud that Discogs contributors believe in the mission of cataloging the world’s music so much that we have reached this remarkable milestone. It has been amazing to watch the database grow and improve over the years and I am very excited to help develop new features like our Tracks project. The possibilities and uses of the database continue to grow for Discogs, and I’m sure there are many more milestones ahead,” stated Discogs’ Chief Product Owner, Nik Kinloch.
