    Around a year ago, domain investor Josh Shapiro acquired the two-letter .COM domain FO.com. Based on DomainIQ’s WHOIS listings, it looks as though Josh has now sold this domain to a Chinese financial organization. The domain was acquired by ICO.com Limited of Hangzhou, a blockchain company who are using FO.com to host a new venture called “Financial Offerings”, a crowdfunding service for digital currencies.

    Here are the rest of the detected domain acquisitions and sales from prominent domain name investors, discovered the past few weeks.

    @Frank.Schilling's Name Administration Inc looks to have sold USDT.com to China. The acronym USDT is the cryptocurrency created by Tether. Other names sold recently by Name Administration Inc include Perro.com, Oing.com and Krate.com.

    Page Howe (@sitehq) acquired USA.club. According to DomainIQ’s WHOIS history, the domain was owned by the .CLUB registry until mid-2017.

    @Braden Pollock purchased LoveLetter.com, a domain previously owned by Blucora Inc. Braden also looks to have acquired Bloated.com via NameJet.

    In a deal covered in a previous article, @Telepathy look to have sold NTW.com to TBC Corporation. According to Wikipedia, this tyre company employs more over 10,500 people. The domain now shows a website for National Tire Warehouse.

    Another deal likely closed by Telepathy is that of Decent.com. The name moved under privacy protection at GoDaddy and looks to have been acquired by Decent Health Insurance.

    Sam Dennis (@impulseleads) may have sold LiveBetter.com after the domain moved under privacy protection.

    As revealed recently on the NamePros blog, DO.com looks to have moved to China. The domain has been acquired by a client of brokerage firm 62.com, according to WHOIS.

    Garry Chernoff sold CoinShow.com via NameJet for $2,716.

    Internet Real Estate Ltd acquired the three-letter domains BPI.com and NAQ.com. Reflecting a change in WHOIS information Media Options looks to have acquired ICM.com.

    Some of @Mike Mann's reported recent sales include JamesGregory.com for $19,888, BasicsMarket.com for $14,888, RentalsDirect.com for $25,000 and Skinte.com for $30,000.
