    In this edition of Detected Domains, we look at some of the major purchases and sales from leading investors within the past few weeks. Thanks to data from DomainIQ's portfolio monitoring tool, we're able to detect some interesting domainer transactions including a cryptocurrency related domain sale for @Frank.Schilling and two five-figure sales from @Mike Mann.


    @Nat Cohen sold Gremlin.com to Gremlin Inc, a company that “finds weaknesses in your system”. The domain is an upgrade from GremlinInc.com.

    Garry Chernoff purchased UrbanStudio.com for $1,966 via NameJet.

    Garry also looks to have sold the domain AAPL.com as the domain moved under privacy protection at @Uniregistry. AAPL is the stock symbol for Apple.

    Anything.com sold MyWorld.com to consumer loyalty program operator Lyoness. The sales price was reported by DNJournal (@Ron Jackson) at $1.2 million.

    Frank Schilling sold Tokens.net to Token Holdings Limited of London, UK who are using the domain to host an ICO.

    A client of Chinese domain brokerage company 62.com acquired the domain 831.com in what’s highly likely to be a six-figure sale.

    Mike Mann sold CoolDomains.com for $15,000 after acquiring it just over a year ago for $5,500.

    Mike also announced the $38,500 sale of HighGrade.com. According to Mike's Twitter page, he originally bought the domain in 1995 for $350, although WHOIS suggests a registration date in 2001.

    Mike Berkens (@TheDomains) sold the domain SexAdvisor.com. As reported by TLDInvestors.com (@equity78), the price was $48,888.

    @Braden Pollock purchased the four-letter domain Spew.com via NameJet. According to NameBio, the price was $4,204.

    Elliot Silver (@EJS) looks to have sold the one-word domain Accurate.com after the domain moved into privacy protection.

    As announced on his Twitter, Andrew Rosener bought Jellyfish.com in an all-Bitcoin deal. Jellyfish.com was purchased from Microsoft by domain investor Andy Booth (@andyboothsi) earlier this year.

    Update January 20th 2018: In the first @DomainSherpa episode of this year, Andrew Rosener (@arosener) confirmed that the Jellyfish.com domain name was acquired for the equivalent of 12.5 Bitcoins. At the time of the purchase, the exchange rate was around $5,000 per Bitcoin, meaning the acquisition price was just over $60,000 USD. As of this update, those 12.5 Bitcoins are worth around $160,000 USD.

    Read the comments. Maybe “fractional ownership” is available and anyone interested in “investing” can buy “a piece” of the Jellyfish.

    Interesting concept, create a coin, allocate units, and say a group of people from namepros make a play for a $500K name, it makes sense. It always did, just has to be executed right.

    Well, you should start one, and try it out. Tell us here on NP’s how you do when get one started and have bought and sold. It’s not for me personally or my thing, but do admire such success from whomever innovates and can make it happen.

    Lot’s of political gotchas to consider before creating such a situation. Unless everyone unequivocally, irrevocably agrees in the “partnership” terms and agrees on all details. All must be financially equal and solvent, all agreed timeline to sell and agreed price. Or, one dictator and balance are limited partners. All agreed to settle any disputes in binding arbitration too. Things like unforseen circumstances like divorces from one individual could really F it up for other people in such a group and tie assets up in some court appointed valuation or forensic accounting.

    I have sat back and listened to all the headaches friends and people I’ve known who have vested interest in Condominum projects owners/partnerships and find it messy. For me, it complicates things with decisions by commitee, ever try to sell to a group? Pain in the A$$. Ever been in a Band? But for others who own coops and condos with those levels of patience and can deal with headaches they work somewhat, but for me never plan to own “partial” anything.

    With the right leasership and right group, sure it could work.

    Appreciate it, but domaining is just a side hobby for me, I don't have the time to do it full time, and if I want a big $ domain, I am able to self finance it via escrow holding, so not really for me, but for others it could work.

    Agreed but but the smart contract on the blockchain could solve these issues.

    The premium domain holder issues the tokens. The price is set in the smart contract. There is a limit on the tokens. Original holder retains some tokens possibly, but of course has liquidated part of their ownership.

    The price is set in the smart contract. Once the price is reached, the domain is sold. No if's, no buts - and definitely no committees!

    Yes, that was tasted correctly, you nailed it, it’s a game changer for big ticket domains, and fractional ownership.
