According to a TechCrunch article published yesterday, a startup called Dosh announced it had raised a $40 million round of funding. CrunchBase reports that the company has raised $97 million in funding since it was founded in 2016. After the most recent funding round, the company is now valued at $300 million. Notably, Dosh uses a .Cash domain name: Dosh.Cash.
Dosh “is a cash back app that searches all available coupons, promo codes, and rebates and gives you cash back from thousands of restaurants, retail stores, hotels, and more.” With this business model, the .Cash domain name extension seems suitable for it. Interestingly, the company is not incorporating the .Cash extension into its branding. In fact, the .Cash extension isn’t a part of its logo either.
It looks like the Dosh.com domain name is owned by another company, and the domain name does not resolve to an operational website. Because of GDPR, it is unclear what company owns Dosh.com right now. DoshCash.com has been registered to another entity since 2011 (several years before Dosh was founded), and that domain name resolves to a default GoDaddy landing page.
