James Booth Reports $150k .IO Sale

James Booth reported a $150,000 .IO domain name sale on Twitter this morning. James reportedly sold 7.io for $150,000 via Squadhelp. He shared that the domain name was owned with his brother, Andy Booth:

According to Namebio, the sale will become the third largest publicly reported .IO domain name sale. The two larger sales are Mint.io for $230,000 and Metaverse.io for $175,000. The sale that will be pushed out of the third spot is Hero.io, which James sold last year for $125,000.

The Whois record for 7.io is redacted, so the buyer of the domain name is not yet known. The nameservers remain pointed at Squadhelp.

  1. While I’m not really a fan of .IO, the buyer of Metaverse.io got an amazing deal paying only $175,000.

    All the nonsense articles out there about the Metaverse being “DOA” are ridiculous.

    Whether you’re a fan of Meta or not, the idea that the next generation of the internet being ‘dead’ is about the stupidest thing I’ve ever hear.

    The same types of articles were written about the Web in the mid-to-late 90s; and, more recently, there have been countless articles pushing the same garbage thesis about crypto.

    I only wish these pretend journalists would be held to account for their pathetic predictions, but they somehow never are.
