Are cryptocurrency domain sales going to become more common in future? Do escrow companies need to expand their services to incorporate Bitcoin or Ethereum domain sales?

    Here are this week's Top Topics.

    I Sold 150 Domains In 9 Months

    Is it too late to make money from domain names? Many newer investors think that the opportunity to make money from domain names has gone, but this domainer begs to differ. After starting as a domain investor just nine months ago, @Hemanttilotia has announced their 150th domain sale after completing a bulk sale of seven names.

    According to the discussion, this investor’s total profit is now $35,000. There is plenty more information on this domainer’s activities available through the link above.

    Mike Mann sells BlueTrading.com for Bitcoin

    Domainer @BrandingModel.com shared the news this week that CEO of DomainMarket.com, Mike Mann, sold BlueTrading.com. That news alone isn’t unusual, but what is different is the fact that Mike traded the name for Bitcoin. The sale amounted to $12,000 in Bitcoin, which equates to around 3.5BTC.

    Are we going to see more domains traded for cryptocurrency in the future?

    Who Should I Contact?

    When performing outbound sales, it can be difficult to know who to contact, especially if you’re targeting a larger corporation. Here, a domain investor is looking for advice on who to contact. Should they target a CEO, the marketing manager or someone else?

    Who would you recommend contacting?

    Quantity vs Quality

    If you have a budget of around $10,000, would you opt to invest in a larger amount of lower quality domain names or just a handful of higher quality premium domains? There are investors that have had success using both methods, but which would you choose?
