James Booth Reports 3rd Highest Public .io Sale

This morning, James Booth reported that he sold the Hero.io domain name for $125,000. James told me the domain name was sold via Squadhelp, and the payment was already made in full:

According to NameBio, the sale of Hero.io will rank as the third highest publicly reported .io domain name sale. Mint.io previously sold for $230,000 in 2021 and Metaverse.io sold for $175,000 in 2021. Both of those sales were transacted via Park.io. This $125,000 sale suplants the $120,000 sale of Ledger.io, which moves to fourth on the list of public .io domain name sales.

The sale of Hero.io is the first publicly reported six figure .io domain name sale since James reported the $105,000 sale of Gaming.io in August of 2022.

I am not sure who acquired Hero.io, but the domain name currently forwards to a for sale page on the Secret Brokerage website.
