Bored Ape Yacht Club launched a new metaverse called Otherside. ApeCoin holders who had their wallets KYC’d were able to begin minting the Otherside virtual land NFTs, called Otherdeed, last night. For this new metaverse, Yuga Labs, parent company of BAYC, is using the Otherside.xyz domain name:

Otherside.xyz was a recent acquisition for the company. In fact, domain investor Swetha Yenugula announced that she sold Otherside.xyz for $29,888 in mid-March. The domain name was sold via Dan.com:

Otherside.xyz is currently registered under Whois privacy at Google’s domain registrar. I presume they bought it using the BIN option rather than by making an offer or leasing the domain name.
I have seen some naysayers comment about how unreal some .xyz sales appear. Here’s another example of a reported sale that turned out to be acquired by a major business.
.XYZ is more legit than BAYC.
If you can’t get my dot com then you get the dot whatever
It raises the value of dot com
With all the money they make in this space,they should have acquired the .com. It forwards to qx .net,so something definitely cooking on the .com .

Are you talking about Shane Cultra?
What are you talking about…who is she? Or he..
Anybody can create mint NfT and do heavy advertising, give special low cost deals to their buddies and pump and pump and then dump it
In fact, Domain Shane was called out by NFTethics for doing just that
What was he called out for doing and where?
https://twitter.com/nftethics called out Shane for doing wash sales NFT trading which is illegal and an SEC violation
It was about 1 month ago. Let me see if I can find the link or you can DM @NFTethics directly. I told Shane and he got very defensive at me, I am just the messenger who let him know they called him and others out for wash trading NFT
we don’t see the ad for his marketing scheme…
Where is it at???
Now xyz domain names are growing so fast.
capital.xyz > $105.000 sold out
sportsbet.xyz > $103.000 sold out
Car.xyz > is for sale $7.788.000
lottery.xyz > $3.900.000 sold out
Xyz now is the best investing
