Early this morning, I saw a tweet from Kukuh Laksana announcing the sale of Meta.so for $149,000:

The seller of Meta.so, Nikul Sanghvi, confirmed the sale in a subsequent tweet. Nikul also provided additional information about the sale, including that it was sold via Dan.com using the buy it now purchase option:

B.et Domain Hack Sold for $100k

This morning, NameBio reported that the B.et domain hack was sold for $100,000. I do not know if the domain name was listed for sale via Sedo or if the domain name sold in private and the parties chose to use Sedo for escrow. The domain name was sold by DomainHacks.com via Sedo, according to the tweet:

Alt.Bank is a Super Confusing, Non-New gTLD Brand

I saw a TechCrunch tweet about a Brazilian startup called Alt.bank, and it caught my attention because of the new gTLD that was auto-hyperlinked in the tweet:

I clicked the Alt.bank link in the tweet, and it did not resolve for me. I clicked through to the TechCrunch article, and I saw why the website doesn’t resolve there. The banking startup’s brand might be Alt.bank, but the company can’t be found on Alt.bank. Instead, the company uses the AltBank.com.br ccTLD for its website.

NFT.ai From 3 Figures to 6 Figures in Less Than a Year

Someone I trust shared a swath of private .ai domain name sales with me. Among them was the six figure sale of NFT.ai. The sale price is impressive, but the ROI was even more notable. I was told that NFT.ai was acquired in an expiry auction for $100 in August of 2020. It was reportedly resold earlier this month for $105,000. The domain name was bought via Namecheap. Paying $100 for a domain name and selling it for more than $100,000 less than a year later is an eye-watering flip.
