Blockchain development and news and information service company Monkey has confirmed the acquisition of the domain name Monkey.com for a fee of $500,000. The Singapore-based company is lead by entrepreneur Daniel Mark Harrison, who initially launched the company using the domain name Monkey.capital before upgrading to Monkey.com. Recently, Monkey posted a link on Monkey.capital announcing the forthcoming move from Monkey.capital to Monkey.com, a domain which was sold by an American company that had owned the domain since 1994. In a statement to NamePros, Monkey CEO Daniel Mark Harrison said: According to Daniel, the sale consisted of a $400,000 cash amount paid in instalments, with $100,000 paid in the form of COEVAL (COE), which is Monkey's own cryptocurrency. As of writing, Monkey.com still resolves to the seller's website, but a switch over is due shortly. It will be fascinating to see what Daniel and his team create on the Monkey.com domain name. We will be watching with interest. To follow Monkey's progress, you can follow them on Twitter or Facebook. Thanks to NamePros member @55Domains for the tip.
