Bank Buys SC.com for $300,000

Two character domain bought by end user.

Sedo has completed the sale of SC.com for $300,000, and it appears the buyer is Standard Chartered Bank. Standard Chartered provides banking services mostly in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The Standard Chartered Group was formed in 1969 through a merger of two banks: The Standard Bank of British South Africa founded in 1863 and the Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China, founded in 1853.

SC.com isn’t the only big deal Sedo has been working to finalize. The graphic below shows some other big deals.

HealthCareSolutions.com sold for $55,000. And keeping with the health care theme, HIPAA.com sold for $23,500. HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, a United States law that is big business for healthcare industry service providers.

With the numeric auction ending tomorrow, the next Great Domains auction starting tomorrow, and an Italian gambling auction later this month, Sedo is filling up its sales pipeline nicely.

There’s also an interesting auction going on over at Afternic for Steroids.info. The domain has a $5,999 bid, which is high for a .info domain name. For comparison, iSteroid.com sold for $1,000 earlier this year at Sedo, and Steroid.mobi sold for $500, also at Sedo.

    Steroids.info, since when is the min bid increase $301 ? lol Next bid amount is $6,300 after the $5,999 first bid. Odd.. just odd.

    The bank would of clearly paid more for this name. If the owner would of sold it themselves they might have doubled or tripled the sales price.
