Huge companies buy domain names along with cryptocurrency companies.
Two very large companies made domain name purchases at Sedo over the past week. Amazon.com bought a generic and Statoil, a $74 billion market cap energy company, bought a domain corresponding to one of its projects.
Of course, there were lots of cryptocurrency related purchases as well, led by Bitkey.com for $25,000.
Here are a baker’s dozen end user sales from Sedo:
