$100,000 Autism.rocks domain name sale rocks domain investing world.
The number of domain names on my weekly Sedo End User sales lists are not always proportional to the number of domain names that sold in the week, nor proportional to the number of end user sales. Some weeks have a lot of domains likely sold to end users that are still in escrow. Other weeks, it’s hard to connect the dots directly between the buyer and the domain.
This week is a case in point. Sedo handled 545 transactions, which is in line with previous weeks. But I wasn’t able to uncover as many end user sales in my scan.
Still, this past week had a huge .rocks new domain sale and big names like AMC. Let’s take a look…
