A cryptocurrency exchange, clothing designer and customized apparel company bought domain names.
Blockchain and cryptocurrency companies continue to buy domain names, and this week’s chart-leader at Sedo was BTCExchange.com for $55,000.
This was one of 20 end user sales I uncovered by reviewing Sedo’s weekly list of sales over $2,000.
Also notable is that a .co.uk domain sold for £22,500–a high amount for a .co.uk–but the buyer isn’t known yet.
Here are the end user domain name sales I uncovered in Sedo’s list this week.
