An article by Tanaya Macheel on Cheddar has pegged the sale price of the Crypto.com domain name at $12 million. According to the article, “Monaco, a Swiss payments and cryptocurrency platform start-up, paid $12 million for the URL as part of a rebranding strategy, Cheddar has learned.” I am not sure whether or not this has been confirmed by the buyer or seller.
If the sale price was $12 million, it would easily be the largest domain name sale of the year, well ahead of the $1.2 million sale of Super.com, as charted by DNJournal. The sale of Crypto.com would also rank as the 9th largest public domain name sale of all time, according to GoDaddy. A $12 million sale would rank below the $13 million sale of Sex.com and above the $11 million sale of Hotels.com.
