Last week, the sale of NBX.com was announced via @Sedo. The name sold for $130,000 and has subsequently moved to the new buyer. Due to GDPR, we are unable to see the full WHOIS details of the new owner, but it’s highly likely that the domain sold to the Norwegian Block Exchange. The Norwegian Blog Exchange is an initiative created recently by Norwegian Airlines CEO Bjorn Kjos, due to his keen interest in blockchain technology as well as its possible opportunities. NBX.com is currently displaying a Norwegian web hosts’ default page and also has Norwegian mail servers. Although the buyer can’t be fully verified at this time, it’s highly likely that Bjorn is the buyer. Here are last week’s Top Topics.

Domain name investing is a fairly solitary career with hundreds of hours of staring at screens and very little face to face interaction required to succeed. Network events such as NamesCon provide investors with an opportunity to meet face to face. This discussion and attached poll asks whether you have ever met another domain investor in person. So far, the majority of voters have not met another investor. Topic by: @infosec3 Are 95% of Domains Selling for Too Little? We routinely hear of five and six-figure sales in the domain industry, with NameBio and DNJournal covering those sales that can be publicly disclosed.
