It’s the second largest public domain sale of all time.
NFTs.com has sold for a staggering $15 million, making it the second largest domain sale ever publicly reported.
Domainer.com and GoDaddy brokered the deal for an undisclosed buyer. Escrow.com provided escrow services and confirmed the deal in a press release.
The landing page for the domain says it’s “Powered by DigitalArtists.com Marketplace.” This landing page recently changed, suggesting the NFT marketplace might be the buyer or associated with it. DigitalArtists.com was acquired for $300,000 last year.
NFTs.com was under Whois privacy starting in March 2021. Before that, the record showed an unknown owner in Monaco. Get on the Web, a domain investor, owned it before that.
For comparison, Media Options sold NFT.com for $2 million last year. That domain is now used for an NFT hub that is selling its own NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
The sale means that the two biggest public domain sales of all time are related to blockchain. A blockchain company paid $30 million plus commission to acquire voice.com in 2019.
