    In this week's Top Topics, a domain investor shares details of their first ever domain sale for Bitcoin and a domainer asks for advice on a possible domain sale that may be in doubt. Elsewhere, there's an informative guide for newer investors on how to find potential buyers for your domain names and a one-word .TV domain sale is revealed.

    How Would You Respond?

    After sending several outbound emails, this domain investor had little luck until receiving a response from a company’s Vice President. The email asked this domainer to discontinue his emails unless they accepted a certain offer.

    The investor accepted the offer, gave two payment options and then received an email from the end user that simply said: “Let me think about it.”

    How would you respond? Will the end user come back offering a lower price, or will the deal be closed? Have a look at the discussion to find out more.
