Dave Evanson Brokers Sale of Kush.com for $500,000

7

Sedo broker Dave Evanson announced that he successfully brokered the sale of the Kush.com domain name for $500,000. Dave announced the sale this afternoon via Twitter:

According to Wikipedia, “Kush is a strain of Cannabis indica.” Kush is a popular term in the marijuana trade, and I think the sale price reflects that popularity.

I don’t always know what the asking price of a domain name was before it sells, but in this case I do: $3 million. An article in Merry Jane published in October of 2017 discussed the value of Kush.com. It appears that Dave reached out to the publication (or someone associated with the publication) and offered the domain name for sale. When he was asked the price, Dave reportedly responded,

User Engage Acquires User.com and Rebrands as User

Earlier this morning, I reported the $150,000 sale of User.com, a domain name that was brokered by Dave Evanson at Sedo. It is now clear who acquired User.com and why.

User Engage, “a full-stack marketing automation platform that helps businesses from around the world grow faster,” bought User.com and rebranded itself as User. The company tweeted the news about rebranding a few hours ago:

I looked at CrunchBase this afternoon to learn a bit more about User, and I saw

User.com Sold for $150,000 via Sedo (Update)

When I was looking at my DomainTools Domain Monitor daily email on Saturday, I noticed that User.com was unlocked and pending transfer to another registrar. Yesterday morning, I saw that the domain name transferred to another domain registrant.

The most recent screenshot record at Screenshots.com shows that the domain name had been listed for sale with Sedo’s Dave Evanson as the broker. I reached out to Dave via email, and he confirmed that he brokered the sale of User.com. The domain name was acquired for $150,000. He was not able to share any other details about the deal, so the buyer is presently unknown (see update below).

When I visited User.com yesterday morning, I saw

In a tweet in late September, Andrew Rosener mentioned that the Pitch.com domain name had apparently been sold over the Summer:

Sedo broker Dave Evanson responded to Andrew’s tweet to confirm that the domain name was sold for an undisclosed price:

The Merge conference is set to begin in Orlando, Florida very soon. I know several people who either arrived within the past couple of days or who are set to travel down to Orlando today or over the weekend for the conference.

For those of you who have been on the fence or otherwise undecided, Sedo is extending a special promotional offer to get a discounted show ticket. Sedo tweeted a link to the discount page a couple of hours ago:

Using Sedo’s promo code with 60% off the current ticket price, the cost of a conference ticket is knocked down from

Sedo Great Domains Auction Results – August 2018

4

The monthly Great Domains auction on Sedo concluded yesterday, and the auction ended with 40 domain names sold at a value of over $130,000. The three largest sales in the auction were EBF.com ($30,500), Sudden.com ($24,950), and CYN.com ($24,950).

Because the auctions closed just yesterday, the sales have not closed yet. They will be reported to DNJournal and NameBio for recordkeeping once the deals are finalized.

One thing you’ll see is that the auctions were sold in US dollars, GB Pounds, and Euros. It’s a bit confusing, and I wish Sedo would require the auctions to be in one currency. Just my little $.02.

Here are the domain names that sold with the winning bid:
