    Just a couple of days ago, James Booth (@BoothDomains) of BQDN noticed that the domain had been sold recently. According to James, who passed on relevant details, the domain sold for $75,000. Based on DomainIQ's historical WHOIS listings, the sale looks to have taken place in mid 2017. Since the sale was likely completed in 2017, it would be listed as the eighteenth largest three-letter .COM sale of 2017.

    The name was acquired by TAE Technologies Inc, formerly Tri Alpha Energy of California. Prior to the sale, the domain was owned by TAE Technology of Hawaii. Interestingly, the seller has now moved to the domain We are waiting for independent confirmation of the sale.

    Here are this week's Top Topics.

    Investors that start today may face more competition and higher wholesale prices for some popular categories. So, if you started investing in domains today with a budget of just $100, how would you spend it to make the highest return on investment?
