Sedo’s monthly auction ended today, and OA.com sold for €554,000. The auction sale price was reported by Sedo broker Frank Tillmanns in a tweet this afternoon:
Congratulations to both buyer and seller! It was a pleasure brokering https://t.co/ZtyD6rRk40 and bringing it to a close in our https://t.co/gXALH2kQ2B great domains auction at a final sales price of €554.000,– https://t.co/g15NhmxOtA

A sale of €554,000 is approximately $608,000 USD at today’s exchange rate. Since the auction just concluded, the sale should not be considered final. Sedo will report the sale to DNJournal and NameBio once payment has been made and the domain name is transferred to the buyer. There are a number of potential buyers who would upgrade their presence by acquiring the OA.com acronym domain name. At a little more than $600k, it could also be a domain investor who won the auction. We shall see once the transaction concludes.
Once this sale closes, it will be one of the largest domain name sales of 2020 and will likely stay on top of the chart.
Update: Sedo reported that this deal closed, so it will be added to the top of the 2020 public domain name sales report.
