Robin Wauters tracks down Clover Holdings Limited.
TechCrunch writer Robin Wauters has tracked down and interviewed the mystery buyer behind Clover Holdings Limited who paid $13 million for Sex.com last year.
But we still don’t know who the buyer is, as he asked TechCrunch to keep his identity secret for now. But he claims the site receives 125,000 visitors a day and should earn seven figures in a year as a parked page.

The new owner says he wants to take the site more mainstream because it opens up more possibilities and exit strategies for the site.
