Analytics company MicroStrategy owns a stellar portfolio of domain names, which we have profiled on the blog in the past. Alongside names such as Emma.com, Hope.com and Alert.com is the highly valuable Voice.com domain. It seems that MicroStrategy has just sold this name. The domain moved out of MicroStrategy's possession over the weekend and into a GoDaddy account that has been obscured by privacy protection. However, from the branding on Voice.com, we know that the company behind the acquisition is Block.one, an open source software publisher specializing in high-performance blockchain technologies. As of writing, Block.one's Facebook and Twitter pages show banner ads for "Voice", which looks to be a new social service from the blockchain company. The company also owns Voice.io, which redirects to Voice.com. According to Crunchbase, Block.one has raised $4 billion in funding through an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) since being founded in May 2017. PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel is an investor in the company. The brand name "Voice" is perfect for anything related to social media, article publication or opinions. There are currently no indications of the price paid for Voice.com, but the domain name likely cost a substantial amount of money, and may have contained an equity option or another creative solution that allows MicroStrategy to maintain an interest in the domain. This news was first reported by Jamie Zoch (@DotWeekly) through his Twitter account, @DotWeekly, which gives regular updates on domain movements. Update on Jun 18, 2019: Voice.com, the domain name, was reportedly sold for $30 million (source).
