    Sedo had a great past week for end user domain name sales. Several companies paid serious cash for good three letter domain names and category defining names.

    Two companies plunked down $100k each for domain names to top Sedo’s public list of sales.

    A Japanese company called Tibanne Co bought for $100,000. Its website suggests that the company is still getting off the ground. Garry Chernoff sold the domain name (he also sold another through Sedo last week, see below.)
