A talent agency with famous clients bought a domain this week.
Sedo’s top public sale this past week was gian.com for $150,000. The domain points to a parking page and the Whois is private, so it’s unclear who bought it. Gian is an Italian name, it’s short for Global Initiative of Academic Networks, there’s a company with a trademark for it, and the domain is developed in other TLDs. So who bought it? Only time will tell.
While I couldn’t figure out who bought gian.com, I tracked down the buyers of 18 domains acquired by end users. The list is below; you can view previous lists like this here.
