Tema.com Sells for $43,805 in Second Auction

Tema.com was sold at DropCatch.com for $128,938 on May 13th. The winning bidder apparently did not pay for the auction, and the domain name was reauctioned on DropCatch.com. The auction concluded this afternoon, and the closing price this time around was $43,805. The difference between the original auction and the second auction was a whopping $85,133. Quite a haircut for the auction house.

As far as I know, DropCatch.com does not report its sales publicly, so we will only know if Tema.com is paid for is when the Whois record for the domain name changes. If the domain name is not purchased, other auction participants will be notified that the domain name will be auctioned again.

  1. Why are domains being bought at higher cost when they are dropped when you can get get cheaper before being dropped via contacting the owners or buy at for sale at the sales platform??

  2. What are the chances Tema.com is re-auctioned again, when the new ‘buyer’ doesn’t pay the $43K? I have no idea why someone would pay $43K on auction for this URL.
