A big week for end user domain name sales including non-.com domains.
This week’s end user domain name sales list is notable not only because of its size but also because the first three domain names aren’t .com. There’s a .org sale I previously wrote about, a .co and a .ventures. Two of the three are related to blockchain. Heck, maybe the third is, too.
As I created this list I realized how hard it will be to deliver this information in the future if registrars obscure registrant info. Journalists seem to be left out of discussions about legitimate access to Whois info.
Here are the end user sales I found in Sedo’s sales list:
(You can view previous lists like this here.)
Star.org $225,000 – More on this sale here. It’s a blockchain company.
Nurture.co $45,000 – The domain is still in escrow but this is an end-user price.
Blockchain.ventures $42,000 – Blockchain ventures has created a couple blockchain-based businesses and isn’t afraid of new TLDs. Two of its businesses include coin.dance and blockchain.poker.
New50.com $23,205 – Interesting sale by Frank Schilling. The buyer is the maker of Cologuard, a non-invasive substitute to colonoscopies. You can bet this will be some sort of marketing domain since 50 is when people are supposed to get colonoscopies to check for colon cancer.
CoinLink.com $22,000 – This appears to be an end user sale as the buyer put “coinlink” as the registrant organization. The seller is the owner of CoinWeek.com, a
cryptocurrency coin news site.
