In a tweet this morning, NameBio reported that the valuable EEE.com domain name was sold via Flippa for $50k:
EEE․com was the top sale of the day going for $50k at Flippa. CruiseInsurance․com came in second closing at $17,099 at NameJet. MedBox․com rounded out third at $15,300 on GoDaddy. That and more in today's #DailyMarketReport at https://t.co/SzBHJx4l3y

When I saw the tweet, I was surprised by the sale price, as I believe that domain name is worth substantially more. I don’t visit Flippa regularly so I never would have seen the listing, but I was bummed that I missed it anyway.
Apparently, the sale is not going to happen. According to a reply on NamePros, the sale was canceled due to a listing error. The NamePros member who shared this update said:
“I’m the buyer in this transaction at Flippa.
Unfortunately the seller (allegedly) did not realise that he owned the cyrillic punycode domain xn--e1aaa.com (еее.com) and listed eee.com at Flippa instead. Transaction is cancelled so this sale never happened.”
Hopefully, the buyer’s payment had not been sent yet. It’s peculiar that this domain name listing was not verified by the registrant.
