What is Gfycat?

Gfycat (pronounced “jiffy-cat”) was founded in order to upgrade the GIF viewing experience to the 21st century. We all know GIFs are awesome (duh!) because they play everywhere, they are simple to view, they contain concise content, and they loop over and over and over again. Even with all that awesomeness, GIFs still suck. This is how we improve the GIF viewing experience. (source)

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Gfycat stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
