Acquired for $30k, BAYC Launches

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

  1. 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 .

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. Now xyz domain names are growing so fast. > $105.000 sold out > $103.000 sold out > is for sale $7.788.000 > $3.900.000 sold out

    Xyz now is the best investing
