Tokens.com Reportedly Sold for $500,000

Tokens.com has been reportedly sold for $500,000 in a deal uncovered by Arbel Arif this evening. Ali Zandi, founder of Starfire Holdings, confirmed that his company sold the domain name in a subsequent comment and in an email to me. The acquisition of Token.com was reported by me today, although that sale was for an undisclosed price.

The $500,000 acquisition of Tokens.com was announced at around the 36 minute mark of a streamed video called The Next Mega Trends In Crypto posted by Tai Lopez:

According to Ali (and the video), the buyer is a company called Polymath, which can be found at Polymath.Network. A Whois record indicates that the domain name has not yet transferred to the buyer, so this may have been announced mid-transaction. The domain name currently resolves to a website for a business called Nevada Coin Minting.

It’s probably not the best idea to announce an acquisition prior to the transfer, but it looks like the buyer was comfortable enough to announce it. I will keep my eye on the Whois record, and I presume the sale will be recorded by DNJournal and NameBio. It looks like this is the largest public domain name sale of 2018 so far.

  1. Funny, I suggested polymath to acquire split.com just few days ago because they are in the tokenization business. Now I know why I did not get a response.
    In a side note I am very happy token(s).com be now both sold, first because 2 different actors owning the singular and plural will lower the power of the name due to possible confusion and this will raise how unique imy name is, and second because it eliminates competitors of choice for it, I am talking of alts.com

  2. Congratulations Ali ! Hard work pays off.

    I am not sure if the price is right. I mean the purchase or the valuation of the domain name. I would expect this keyword domain name in the plural form in this hot industry would fetch more.

    Closer to 7 figures not mid 6 figures.

  3. Mr. Lopez was too annoying/boring to listen to and watch so I couldn’t watch the video for too long. Meanwhile, congratulations to Ali for the deal making!
