According to a report on Domainer.com.au, the Sleep.com.au domain name was sold for $100,000 AUD on the Drop.com.au domain name auction platform. (Update: It would appear that the sale is in AUD rather than USD. Assuming it is AUD, that would be approximately $66,559 in USD.):

Once this sale is confirmed, it will rank as the one of the largest ccTLD domain name sales of 2020 in DNJournal. It would also rank in the top
20 domain name sales of 2020, tying the $100,000 sales of Winemaker.com, BTI.com, and Barri.com 50 domain name sales of 2020, assuming the sale currency was in AUD.
According to NameBio, the $100,000 AUD sale of Sleep.com.au will rank in the top 11 .com.au domain name sales of all time. Interestingly, Sleeping.com and Snoring.com each sold for just over $500,000 in 2018. Mattress Firm owns the Sleep.com domain name.
At the time of publication, Sleep.com.au resolves to a parked page, so it is unclear how the domain name will be used.
