Cryptocurrency domain names have been quite popular of late. Domain names related to cryptocurrency continue to sell for high prices at marketplaces and auction venues. Many sold domain names are very specific to cryptocurrency (ie they have “crypto,” “bitcoin,” or some other crypto-related keyword in them). Other domain names are less specific and have been somewhat repurposed to make sense in the crypto space.
Coin related domain names have also become popular because of cryptocurrency. NameBio has nearly 1,000 publicly-shared domain name sales archived with the word “coin” in the last five years. I would imagine many of these have been sold to cryptocurrency companies or people speculating on cryptocurrency domain names. Because of the increased value and demand for these kinds of domain names, companies have been listing domain names for sale that were bought for reasons not related to cryptocurrency. For instance, Token.com and Tokens.com were recently sold for substantial sums of money to companies in the crypto space.
This afternoon, Aron Meystedt announced that Heritage Auctions has listed some of its corporate-owned domain names that could be used in the cryptocurrency space. The company bought them for its own marketing purposes, but the opportunity to cash in was too great to keep the domain names on the sideline. Here’s what Aron told me about these domain names and why the company is selling:
“We’ve owned these names for years and acquired them to solidify our position as the world’s largest seller of physical coins. With the rise in the crypto space, the executives are happy to see the names put to use.”
The domain names the company listed for sale (along with pricing) are below. Interested parties should contact Aron to purchase any of the domain names:
CoinLoans.com $150K (start a crypto lending platform. The Domain Capital of the crypto space)
JewelryLoan.com $50K (not crypto but a great name)
CoinQuotes.com $50K (give Coin Market Cap a run for their ‘digital’ money)
CoinLists.com $20K (the plural version is for sale at $275,000 by another seller)
