sales Braden Pollock Sold Q.org for $500,000

Spaceship Spaceship
In February 2017, domain investor and CEO of Legal Brand Marketing, @Braden Pollock, acquired a portfolio of single-character .ORG domain names for an undisclosed fee. The names in the portfolio included A.org, B.org, R.org, T.org, Z.org and 8.org, which have all been put to use by Braden, supporting worthwhile causes.

Among the other single-character names in the portfolio was Q.org, a highly desirable single-letter name with a multitude of uses. It's interesting to note that the .COM equivalent, Q.com, is one of just three single-letter .COM's that have been assigned.

Recently, Braden revealed to us that he had received a $150,000 opening offer for Q.org in February 2018, a year after purchasing the portfolio. The offer was countered with a $500,000 asking price, and a deal was agreed upon the following day.

According to Braden, the $500,000 Q.org deal was agreed upon in a total of four emails, and after lawyers drew up an agreement, the transaction was closed via Escrow.com.

The identity of the buyer remains unknown, with DomainIQ's WHOIS listing showing the domain as being registered under privacy protection at eNom. As of writing, Q.org displays a simple "coming soon" message. It'll be interesting to see how the name is used.

Despite receiving several low six-figure offers for some of his other single-character .ORG names, Braden is yet to sell.

According to NameBio, this will be the second-largest publicly disclosed .ORG domain sale of all time, behind only Poker.org, which @Sedo sold for $1 million in 2010.

There is a whole conspiracy thing on the right with some Q-anon stuff, maybe they bought it for that.
