The cryptocurrency surge continues to drive sales at Sedo.
Sedo had some big sales to end users this past week and the top two are related to blockchain. That’s not a big surprise but the interesting thing is that the second domain, Orbs.com, doesn’t have anything to do with blockchain on the surface. It’s an example of a blockchain company going after a solid brand name.
Also, note the owner of Pens.com buying a ccTLD and a sale of a .berlin domain name.
Here’s the list of end user domain name sales from the past week at Sedo:
(You can view previous lists like this here.)
CryptoWorld.com $194,888 – Mike Mann revealed that the owner is Binance.com, a cryptocurrency trading platform.
Orbs.com $50,000 – Another domain that sold for big bucks due to blockchain. The buyer is creating a technology to let consumer brands transition users to the blockchain.
Pens.de €23,740 – National Pen Co., which also owns Pens.com.
Kadena.com $17,000 – The law firm St. Onge Steward Johnston & Reens LLC is the new owner so it was likely for one of its clients.
MetalStamping.com $15,000 – An Indiana firm that uses the domain name MetalStamp-Inc.com.
BPI.co $8,900 – BPI-China owns BPI-cn.com. I can’t get that name to resolve to figure out what they do but this was clearly an acronym purchase. It’s not every day that you see a three letter .co sell for so much.
YellowSeed.com $6,750 – Yellow Seed facilitates “connections between farmers and new markets in order to create thriving human, agricultural and ecological systems.”
LiveNext.com $6,500 – The buyer is unknown but they put up a holding page with their logo.
VR.berlin €5,990 – German bank Volksbank Raiffeisenbank Rosenheim-Chiemsee eG.
