Token.com Reportedly Sold

18

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

Yesterday afternoon, I re-visited Token.com 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 Token.com.

Ali reported to me that the Token.com 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 Escrow.com. 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 Token.com must have sold for a substantial amount of money.

    “There is no doubt the market for cryptocurrency domain names is hot right now, and a one word .com domain name like Token.com 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. 😀

    more and more the crypto space resembles the dotcom bust of the early 2000’s.

      No doubt crypto will eventually lose 99% of its current value. The question is how much longer is the crypto party going to last? If it’s another year or two, I will retire off it.

    @JZ There was opportunity to make a fortune then, and if you’re correct, that same opportunity exists now.

    Token.com 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”.

      Yeah, there is the opportunity. Just don’t get stuck holding the bag when it all implodes.
