With Bitcoin on the rise, are cryptocurrency domain names swinging back into action?

It’s no secret that Bitcoin has had quite a run over the last three months. If you bought Bitcoin back in March, you could have almost doubled your money by now. Of course, most people didn’t even consider doubling down on Bitcoin in March since it has been puttering along with very little growth for […]

With Bitcoin on the rise, are cryptocurrency domain names swinging back into action?

It’s no secret that Bitcoin has had quite a run over the last three months. If you bought Bitcoin back in March, you could have almost doubled your money by now. Of course, most people didn’t even consider doubling down on Bitcoin in March since it has been puttering along with very little growth for some time now.

Now, Bitcoin has outperformed most people’s stock portfolio’s over the last three months making investors around the world scratch their heads and wonder if they should jump back in.

With new price movement also comes lots of new press buzz, in short – people are talking about Bitcoin again, a lot. Back in the good old days of late 2017 when Bitcoin was all the rage, cryptocurrency-related domains were really seeing some solid activity. As the cryptocurrency market dropped, dropped, and dropped some more, interest in cryptocurrency domains waned as well.

Now I’m thinking, cryptocurrency feels like it’s going to be in the spotlight again (or at the moment it certainly is) so does that mean that cryptocurrency domains are also going to see a resurgence?

One of the things I’m seeing that could be an indicator that cryptocurrency names are heating up is what looks like increased bidding activity in the aftermarket. BitcoinCafe.com has 33 bids and BitcoinKey.com has 21 bids on Go Daddy auctions and every week I’m seeing more cryptocurrency names see similar activity.

Of course, I’m not really running any detailed analysis so it could be that I’m looking for this trend to heat up so I’m seeing it. What do you think? As cryptocurrency heats up is the market for cryptocurrency domains swinging back into action?

I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!

AUCTION RECAP OF MAY 23, 2019

A look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the domain auction list posted on May 23, 2019.

If there is an asterisk (*) next to a price, it means that the name was at auction from a private seller (rather than an expiring name) and may have had a reserve.  I’m only showing where the price was when the domain auction ended, but the name may not have sold if a reserve was in place.

MMX makes $100,000 .luxe premium sale

MMX says it has sold a package of premium .luxe domain names for $100,000. The registry announced this week that it has sold “a small number of .luxe names for a combined value of $100,000 in a single trade”.

State Farm, the very large insurance company, filed a UDRP against BigStateFarmAgent.com.

Surprisingly to me, the panelist ruled against State Farm and the domain name will be retained by the registrant. The panelist did […]



#StevieWonder .com : #UDRP took the #domain from the artist’s fans in 2005

Someone just spent $2,000 dollars to acquire StevieWonder.com via the DropCatch auction, ignoring existing trademarks secured on the famous artist’s behalf. They might have wasted two grand at the press of a bid button. Something went wrong for this domain to drop in the first place; Stevie Wonder’s other domains are also at Com Laude, […]

Underwriting insurance using just a domain name

You can tell a lot about a company by its domain name.

Browser image with domain name starting with https

Anyone who has applied for business insurance knows what a colossal pain it is. You have to provide information that should be easily obtainable by the insurance broker.

Now one Canadian insurance underwriter promises to write cyber security insurance based on one piece of information: a company’s domain name.

CFC Underwriting says it can learn a lot about a company by only knowing the company’s domain name. In an interview with Canadian Underwriter, CFC’s chief innovation officer Graeme Newman said it can determine:

  • Address
  • Estimate of number of employees
  • Revenue estimate
  • Email systems used and what security is applied to it
  • Websites, hosts and the security applied to those sites
  • How many employee credentials are exposed on the dark web

You can definitely get a lot of this information–or at least start to ascertain it–by knowing a company’s domain name. CFC Underwriting is taking an intelligent approach to onboarding new insureds.

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday May 24th, 2019

Escrow.com

I’ve had problems with registrars over the years.  Names not showing up in my account and even names in my accounts that I’ve sold and know were transferred out because the buyer accepted escrow and even screenshoted the name in his account after I told him I still had it. Actually now that I think of it, the problems have all been at eNom.  One time I even had to email the old owner to accept a transfer even though I clearly owned the name and all the contacts were in my name, yet the emails kept going to him.  Rather than try and fix it I just asked him to accept it.  It worked and the name transferred.
Other problems I’ve had are just me being lazy. Like yesterday when my friend Ken O’Brien said he had a decent starting offer at Afternic for a name I had purchased from him.  I hadn’t listed the last 10-15 purchases on Afternic because I have been busy and its sitting on a list of things to do.  I have all them on landers so I’m not completely missing out on offers but I am missing out on quick transfer buys.  Fortunately I’ve been in this industry long enough I’ve made enough friends and contacts that I can solve most of my problems with an email but between some bad glitches at the registrars and my laziness, I’ve been able to make things that should be easy into a bit more difficult.  But I guess that’s everything in life.  You can do a little work early and be done or you can do a lot more work later.   Here are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD keep on keeping on
