The Perils of an .XYZ Domain

The .XYZ extension has exploded in popularity in the past year, thanks largely to the swathe of Web3 projects that have turned to .XYZ as a base for their projects. So far this year, we’ve seen domains such as Wrap.xyz, Capital.xyz, and Profile.xyz sell for six-figures each.

But for one company at least, a move to .XYZ didn’t go so well. A virtual office provider, Spot, has detailed why and how the company switched from Spot.xyz to SpotVirtual.com.

Crypto Company Sues 79-Year-Old Owner of Wormhole.com

The owners of valuable one-word .com domains are approached on a regular basis with purchase offers. Some serious and some not so serious. In this case, a company started out with a meager $2,500 offer for Wormhole.com.

The 79-year-old owner reportedly responded with a $50,000 asking price but when the buyer agreed to pay the price, the owner, who registered the name in 1994, voiced concerns and declined to proceed at a $50,000 price point. The buyer ultimately sued the owner.

Here, investors are reacting to this bizarre case. What would you have done differently here?
