CEO tells the Voice.com story.
MicroStrategy (NASDAQ: MSTR) is both domain famous and bitcoin famous.
The company acquired lots of great domain names early on, such as Alert.com, Courage.com, Mike.com and Usher.com.
Then, last year, the company sold one of its domains for a record amount: Voice.com for $30 million.
Voice.com sold to a cryptocurrency company. MicroStrategy then went big on bitcoin, buying $425 million of bitcoin.
MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor was on The Pomp Podcast this week. He talked about why his firm acquired so many great domains and gave details on selling Voice.com.
It’s a great interview. Saylor explains that the first offer was for only $150,000, and he kept ignoring them. He told them not to bother him until it was at least $10 million.
