    I was the buyer's broker on this deal and can verify it. I can also confirm the deal is underway at escrow.com with the first instalment received.

    The reason is this: given the unsavory coverage of the buyer's activities, an installment plan does not ensure they won't default sometime during the payment plan. I hope your commission was paid already.

    Well of course, that's the risk on all instalment plans. That's why they are done through escrow.com. And thanks for your concern about my commission :).

    So technically the domain hasn't changed hands and won't be considered a done deal, until it's paid off. Which might take months. I would not be concerned, if it weren't for the public background info on the buyer.

    Should of also picked up Monkeycapital.com for $5500.00. Sometimes a one word generic is to generic.

    The name really does not imply anything about ICO.
    I guess if seller is going to take tokens then it was a good deal for the buyer regardless of what happens.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this falls through. Installments and cryptocurrency fluctuations sounds like a bad combination.

    That said it's strong negotiating from the buyer to get such a deal.

    I agree to some extent. Depends on how bullish the seller is on cryptocurrency. But good luck to the seller when trying to liquidate $100K of a new currency like this. Will crash the currency instantly.

    If this really turns into something, then undoublty Monkey Capital will be holding the best domain in the crypto space so far.

    Atleast as far as im aware, or is there any cryptocurrency using a stronger Brand name then Monkey.com?

    if one invest money in a monkey brand, it's possible they may get "cheetah'ed", out of it.


    at least that's what tarzan said to jane and boy


    whole thing sound bananas to me

    imo....

    All ICO's are not game money... some of them are solid industry distrupters.
    Even Ethereum (ETH) itself was a ICO funded model.

    The model is still in it's infancy and it will evolve to a point where ICO's will need to have more transparency and adhere to certain criteria if they want to secure funding from the masses.
