Reportedly Sold

Back in November, I noticed thatย Ali Zandi ofย Starfire Holdings was brokering the sale of theย domain name. was owned by a company called Token Media, which switched domain names to while their domain name was being marketed.

Yesterday afternoon, I re-visited to see if anything had changed, and I noticed a new “coming soon” message on the landing page. Using the DomainTools Whois History tool, I also noticed the domain name had transferred from Network Solutions to Tucows earlier in January and the domain name is now registered under Whois privacy. Suspecting the domain name may have been sold, I emailed Ali Zandi to ask about the status of

Ali reported to me that the domain name was sold. Unfortunately, the purchase price (and original asking price) are not being revealed. Here’s what Ali told me via email:

“Yes, we did indeed broker it. The deal has been finalized via The sellers were extremely happy, and the buyer is a major player in the crypto currency space. This domain garnered more interest during the brokerage period than almost all of our other brokered names combined. We locked in a buyer within a couple of weeks from the start of our EBA.”

There is no doubt the market for cryptocurrency domain names is hot right now, and a one word .com domain name like must have sold for a substantial amount of money.

  1. “There is no doubt the market for cryptocurrency domain names is hot right now, and a one word .com domain name like must have sold for a substantial amount of money.”

    I warned them in the previous thread fair and square about what would happen if I find out it went too low, so let’s hope I don’t. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. @JZ There was opportunity to make a fortune then, and if you’re correct, that same opportunity exists now. is such a great name for a crypto, or even non-crypto related, company. Interested to find out who is the “major player in the crypto currency space”.

  3. Thought I’d point out that now shows its current owner – a cryptocurrency debit card called “Token” owns it now.
