In October, I saw that a Minnesota company called Token Media owned the great Token.com domain name. I also noticed the company owned TokenMedia.com as well. With that in mind, I made an offer to buy Token.com, suggesting that the company could sell the domain name and shift its website to TokenMedia.com.
A few weeks later, I received a response to my email from Ali Zandi, the founder of a domain brokerage called Starfire Holdings. Ali let me know that he is the exclusive broker for the domain name and that my offer is lower than the company would consider to sell the domain name. I was interested in buying the domain name speculatively, so it wouldn’t have made sense for me to pursue the domain name at a greater level.
I had a look at Token.com today, and it looks like the company has moved its website to TokenMedia.com. In its place, there is a “for sale” landing page with a contact form to connect people with Ali Zandi and his brokerage.
With the cryptocurrency market seemingly on fire and continuing to get hotter, the Token.com domain name is quite valuable. I don’t have any idea what the domain owner is asking for the domain name, but cryptocurrency, coin, and token related domain names are selling well these days (to say the least). Token.com is obviously quite valuable, and I will keep my eyes on it to see if Ali is able to sell the domain name for the media company.
