    Good morning Andrew!

    Thanks for the mention on your site. I am happy to report that our site is absolutely doing well and growth is strong.

    Since our launch on the 15th of May we have grown to over 1050 listings! 😀

    Currently we are testing out live chat, affiliate marketing and now API integration. So there is still quite a lot to go.

    Ironically, when we first started out, Colorado was running away with the listings as our number 1 state. Since that time Florida has overtaken it. Just the fact that Colorado was such a strong market really surprised me, but outside of that the rest of the growth is pretty much growing as planned.

    Appreciate everything.

    Respectfully, Mike Kugler

    “Monaco, a Swiss payments and cryptocurrency startup, paid $12 million for the URL as part of a rebranding strategy, according to a source involved in the transaction. Interest in the domain has always been high among cryptocurrency companies but boomed this year as mainstream interest in the cryptocurrency market grew following the price spike at the end of 2017. Domain sellers speculated it could have sold for between $5 and $10 million.”

      There was talk of that price, but no party to the transaction has confirmed it that I’m aware of. I think Ron has a good litmus test for including a domain name in his charts.
