According to a tweet this morning from Sedo domain name broker Albert Schimmel, the Glance.com domain name was sold via Sedo for $160,000:

At the time of publication, Glance.com is registered privately at GoDaddy, so the current registrant (and possible buyer) is unknown. Historical Whois records at DomainTools shows the domain name has been registered under Whois privacy for several years. It is not clear if the domain name transferred yet, but I believe Sedo has a policy to only report domain name sales after they have transacted. The domain name does not resolve to an active website at this time.
Assuming the domain name was acquired by an end user rather than an investor, I would not be surprised to learn that the domain name was acquired by a company called Glance, described as “the world’s first screen zero platform.” The company just announced a $45 million investment from Mithril Capital. That company currently uses the Glance.app domain name for its website, and I think Glance.com would be a solid upgrade. Interestingly, the company also uses the Glance.World url in its Twitter profile.
There are quite a few other companies that use “Glance” in their branding, and it would be quite a coup for any of them to get the brand match .com domain name at a pretty good price. There is Glance Pay, Glance Networks, Glance Technology, Glance Marketing, At a Glance, Glance Creative, and many other companies that have Glance as a major aspect of their branding.
Once the sale is recorded in DNJournal and NameBio, it will rank as the 24th largest domain name sale of 2019 (to date). It will also be one of the 10 largest publicly reported domain name sales of the year for Sedo.
