Snapchat Is Now Said To Be Worth More Than The GDP Of 82 Countries Across The World


I don’t know about you bros, but for me it’s hard to mentally grasp how much some of these Silicon Valley companies are worth until I put it into terms I can understand, like the Gross Domestic Product of an entire country. This isn’t always the case, because the GDP of the United States is nearly 18 trillion dollars, a number so large I can’t wrap my feeble mind around it. But other countries with GDPs in the billions I can grasp, which is why the latest valuation of Snapchat has me wondering just how in the fuck Snapchat can be worth more than the annual GDP of countries I visit for vacation. First up, let’s take a look at the latest valuation of Snapchat and then we can look at all the countries with a GDP less than Snapchat’s valuation.

Btw, you should be following BroBible on Snapchat if you’re not already because we can get away things on there that we can’t put here on the site.

Sources have told TechCrunch that Snapchat is expanding its Fidelity-led $175 million Series F round into a Series FP round, and it reportedly comes with a valuation around $20 billion.
VC data provider VCexperts have pegged Snapchat’s share price at $30.72 per share, and that the new round could propel Snapchat to a valuation “as high as $22.7 billion,” according to TechCrunch.

With the new valuation coming Snapchat could somehow be worth an astounding $22.7 BILLION. Estonia has a GDP of $22.704 billion, and they rank as the #103 country in the world in terms of GDP.

Here are all the countries with GDPs less than Snapchat’s impending valuation of $22.7 billion (these numbers are in millions, so 21,889 = $21.889 billion)…The number on the left is the country’s worldwide GDP rank and the number to the right of the country’s name is the GDP (in millions):
