Auction will show the investor appetite for crypto domains.
Sedo announced that it will hold an auction September 13-20 that will exclusively feature cryptocurrency and blockchain-related domain names.
It’s a bit surprising that no other major marketplace has held a similar auction given that this market has driven the domain market over the past year. Since the beginning of 2017, Sedo has recorded $1.7 million in sales of names containing crypto and blockchain terms.
That undercounts the overall impact significantly. Crypto and blockchain companies are also buying generic and short domains that lack these keywords. For example, many are buying three letter domain names that end in “x”, standing for exchange.
Here are Sedo’s top 10 public sales of crypto and blockchain domains:
Sellers can submit domain names for free if they meet the qualifications. Details are here.
