Yesterday afternoon, Brandsight SVP Matt Serlin announced that his company is looking to hire a domain industry veteran in an account management role:
One year ago today, John Berryhill suffered a heart attack while out for a casual bike ride. This past weekend, John showed that he has fully recovered, and he and I completed our 162 mile Pan-Mass Challenge. Together so far, John and I have raised nearly $20,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund, and much of this has been with the help of the domain investing community.
I don’t really share the domain names I sell or sales prices of domain names. I have publicly shared a handful over the last 10+ years, but my strong preference is to keep my sales and sale prices private. Occasionally, I have been asked about why this is my preference, and I want to share one example of what can happen when someone makes the decision to share a sale publicly.
Cameron Winklevoss, Co-founder of a Bitcoin exchange called Gemini (which operates on the brand match Gemini.com), tweeted about domain names a few days ago, comparing the early days to crypto assets:
Cyberspace assets = domain names
Cryptonetwork assets = tokens
1990: 4-letter domain = $10. Same domain today = few millions max
2009: bitcoin pizza = $10. Same pizza today = ~$80million
Ability to own a piece of Cryptonetworks > Internet.
