Company buys Filament.com for new product line.
Sedo’s top public end user sale for the past week was Filament.com, which was purchased by a company changing its name and introducing a new product line called Filament Network.
The company had some other notable end user sales, including an IOT domain name purchased by a company that’s not an Internet of Things company. They paid a premium because IOT is now a popular acronym.
One sale that didn’t make the list, because I can’t confirm it’s an end user purchase: ButtBras.com for $899. Did you know this is a thing? OK, let’s get to the list:
Filament.com $89,000 – Reno, Nevada company SWFL, Inc (formerly Pinoccio) recently launched a new product line called Filament Network, which provides industrial-strength microcontrollers for commercial customers.
IOTgroup.com $10,000 – Internet of Things domains are hot, but the buyer here isn’t an IOT company. The buyer is Independent Oil Tools, so it was buying an acronym domain name.
