Sedo released its weekly domain name sales report yesterday, and the $100,000 sale of WordPlay.com was the largest public sale of the week on the platform. HubSpot CTO and Co-Founder Dharmesh Shah was the buyer of WordPlay.com.
I follow Dharmesh on Twitter, and like me, he is a big fan of the Wordle word guessing game that was recently acquired by the New York Times. Yesterday evening, I clicked one of his personalized Dharme.sh shortened url links related to Wordle, and I ended up on WordPlay.com. I recalled seeing the domain name on Sedo’s weekly sales list this morning and realized he was the buyer.
