It is quite obvious domain names related to cryptocurrency are selling very well. Domain registrars, domain investors who own the most relevant domain names, and domain brokers seem to be doing quite well with these types of domain names. I think quite a bit of attention has deviated from the domain investment business to cryptocurrency over the last couple of years. Whether it continues to drive attention away or is a temporary distraction (for lack of a better word) remains to be seen.
Today’s poll question is Will Cryptocurrency Domains Stay Hot in 2018? You are invited to vote in the poll below and are welcome to share additional thoughts in the comment section. Interestingly, I am going to publish an article about what must have been a great crypto domain name sale later on this morning… stay tuned.
Our advice to the wise. Treat All Crypto Gambles as Pass the potato quickly or get caught holding the losing hand. JAS

Crypto is the future, old farts like Jeff Schneider do not understand how crypto currency changes the landscape.
The implications of blockchain technology in a modern world are endless.
I expect many attorney, and notary alike to be laid off because of it.
Here’s the article about the domain name sale I referenced: https://domaininvesting.com/token-com-reportedly-sold/
Crypto-currency domains will stay hot throughout 2018 and well into 2019.
New businesses emerging from the blockchain sector need crypto-related domains and domain Investors will be flipping them (already started).
Strong demand continues as the sector grows. If you follow the news, then you know that there is a lot of institutional momentum and room for growth.
FinChain.com was sold for $40K, Chinese buyers , now Jeff you wouldn’t have paid $25 for a domain like that 2 years ago.
I have a decent portfolio of crypto, block, ethereum, eth, token and ledger domains. Lots of offers. But nothing substantial.
@Ryan — I checked whois for finchain.com.
According to the whois, the owner is from Riyadh. Maybe whois hasn’t been updated?
Enom is a slow transfer out, someone please tell them to start using express transfers, 5 days of hell oncoming
If it is the same group it looks like a nice upgrade from the .info for finchain
I believe we still are in the early innings for crypto and blockchain type names. Blockchain is transformational and it is going to take time but we are only just starting to scratch the surface with the changes that will occur.
As others have said there are lots of inquiries from all over the world but many are just tire kickers. The fact that we are starting to see some nice 6 figure sales and the fact that folks everywhere are beginning to understand crypto/blockchain tells me that it should be an interesting couple of years. There are lots of companies being built on .io and other extensions that will ultimately want the .com as well.
I sold finchain.com
The buyer transferred to enom but did not change the contact info. You will see the sale on dnjournal soon. Some of my other crypto sales:
TheBlockchain.com $15,000 way back on namejet
Coinfund.com $28,000 (uniregistry)
CoinCon.com $9,995 (afternic)
Plus a bunch sub 5k. Regged and bought a bunch of these a while back.
Ripplechain.com went for $18,995
Great foresight to snag those. Congrats on the sales!
I just hand reg a block chain domain and already got offers!!
BlockChain has many potentials
The more I read about Block Chain the more I am convince the tech will use it….it is like a ghost block chain..nobody owns it but everyone will use it..just like ghost surgery or ghost writer.
Another sale to report: Tokens.com was reportedly sold for $500,000:
I recently acquired CryptoGirl.com with people already inquiring to buy/lease.
