    Nat Cohen's @Telepathy Inc owns a vast portfolio of high-value domain names including several two-letter .COM's and hundreds of three-letter .COM's. In 2017, Telepathy sold several three-letter .COM's including WMN.com for $200,000 and DCC.com for $198,000. The company also sold OFO.com in a seven-figure deal brokered by George Hong (@GUTA).

    It looks like 2018 has started well for Telepathy as the company seems to have sold another three-letter .COM, this time it's NTW.com. Whilst NTW may not be an obvious acronym, TBC Corporation of Florida showed enough interest to likely pay a large sum for the name.

    That interest likely stemmed from a recently announced mega-deal. Sumitomo, the owner of TBC Corporation, agreed to a joint venture with Michelin at the beginning of 2018.

    This joint venture sees Michelin paying Sumitomo a total of $630 million to become a 50/50 partner in a tyre wholesale distribution called NTW (National Tyre Warehouse). The combined venture will create a distribution network that is the second-largest in terms of market share.

    Sumitomo's TBC Corporation registered GoNTW.com in 2015 for its existing National Tyre Warehouse brand. This joint-venture with fellow tyre giant Michelin may have prompted a move to acquire the shorter NTW.com from Telepathy.

    Based on the previous three-letter .COM sales involving Telepathy, it is likely that this sold for a six-figure fee.

    According to DNJournal, the largest three-letter .COM sale of 2018 to date is that of DXB.com for $220,000. If Telepathy's sales of WMN.com and DCC.com are anything to go by, NTW.com may have sold for a similar fee to DXB.com.

    I think 2018 will see a new floor of 100k for any LLL.com ,In three years LLL.com will be the price of LL.com today , there is basically hundreds to thousands of asses for each LLL and only one seat. Nowhere to go but up

    No chance. There were $9,000 LLL sales in late 2017. No way the floor increases by 900%.

    Telepathy owns “hundreds” of LLL?

    Seems like I only see a few Telepathy LLL sales per year.

    Look at all the armchair quarterbacks, like I said as long as there is many companies for each domains these things will go up ,the auctions you see at namescon are wholesale prices. Look at all the newbies teaching me ,I just sold2 word .com for 26k and your sending be needle in a haystack that sold for 500k

    I don't think they actively publicize all their sales. But they will wait and hold out for the right offer. So it's possible they are selling just a few every year. There is no hurry.

    Five-figure LLL sales probably outnumbered six-plus number LLL sales in 2017 by five or ten to one, but you’re stridently predicting a 900% increase in the LLL floor this year?
