    As discovered by domain broker @Alan Dunn on Twitter, New York-based Jump Bikes recently acquired the domain name. It's highly likely that the domain sold for a high amount, given the fact that was part of Microsoft's vast domain portfolio. Jump Bikes was acquired by Uber in April 2018 for $200 million.

    Here are this week's Top Topics.

    My First Domain Sale at $14,500

    It's a start to domain investing that many domainers would dream of. This investor purchased a four-letter .COM domain from GoDaddy for $985 in May 2018. Just under three months later, a $12,000 initial offer was received via the BrandPa marketplace.

    After some negotiation, a $14,500 price was agreed upon and the transaction has now closed. Congratulations on a terrific start to your domaining career!

    Should I Accept This Offer?

    Blockchain related domains are popular amongst investors and end users alike, thanks to the emergence of blockchain technology in recent years. Here, a domainer has asked the community for advice after receiving an $800 offer for a .MX domain, just a week after registering the name.

    Would you accept this offer?

    The Strategy to Sell Domains for $50-100

    Is there a particular strategy involved in acquiring domains with an aim to selling them between $50 and $100? That's the question that is being asked in this discussion. Investors have given their opinions on this, with many advocating putting time into finding domains to sell at higher prices such as $500 to $1,000. Do you agree with this?

    What Annoys You About the Domain Industry?

    As with any industry, the domain industry has its positives and negatives. Some of those negatives can result in domainers becoming particularly annoyed. Here, investors have been prompted to share their grievances about the industry. Issues such as constant spam are particularly common, it seems.

    How Long Did Your First Sale Take?

    The majority of us remember our first ever domain sales, but how long did it take you to get that sale? For some it may be days, for others, it may be weeks or months. A new investor is looking for feedback from investors on the timeframe of their first ever sales.

    Wow nice win my first domain sold for 300 and a couple here and there at 100. I gave up but coming back and paying a bit closer attention to details and spending more time doing things like paying to be in VIP and such to get more insights. Initially looking back I was making a lot of rookie mistakes and think groups like this are a blessing and nice to see so many good discussions taking place.
