    Great information, thanks, and congratulations on your sale.
    I'm the owner of Ninja.io, which I acquired for a fraction of the amount mention in this article, several years ago. It makes me wonder what its potential value might be.
    Didn't expect the TLD to blow up like it did though.

    To make a comparison, I paid 6.9 btc a few years ago for NAS in the best extension. It was a $50k deal at the valuation of btc then.

    I’ll disagree with Mike Carson in that it’s easier to ask 7 of something vs 70,000. Owners of assets at these levels know what they have and the worth. It’s more an educated guess of which is better - do you hold btc or convert a few to expand?

    In this case I would never part with 5 btc for the domain. It would only make sense if the buyer has development plans and a serious budget to fund the project.

    A hundred times yes! For the biggest deal of my life so far, the opening mail went to the spam folder and I found it by pure chance. But since then, I've set a reminder to check spam every 20 days (it auto-deletes after 30, so it gives me some margin just in case) and I do sometimes find some useful mails there. The two most recent findings are: 1. a mail from a ccTLD registry saying they would delete my domain if I don't click the link in the e-mail; 2. a bounced mail ("mailbox full") that I sent a week prior and was wondering why I didn't get a reply. So *do* check those spam folders...

    Congratulations for a job well done.

    You have shown the way that it is not how long you have been in the domain investing business, but what relevant knowledge and skills you have acquired within that short period. Most importantly how you make use of the knowledge and skills.
