    Thanks for the info.

    I was concidering using Saw for one my domains a few months ago. I know they are representing some great domain names, but i never hear much about their sales, so its good to hear about this.

    Congrats to them and their client.

    I never knew about that one, but yeah that's a good one.

    I knew they was representing AI dot com.

    The other 2 that always stood out to me was Virtual dot com and Diamond dot com.

    Why are people all of a sudden saying that names selling for 11 million USD are undersold. Based on what??

    To be honest I had high expectations for this name I expected it to sell much higher than voice.com
    But still the price was not revealed so the 11 million is just an assumption
    Buyer is Google so I think it was sold higher than that.

    Beautiful name that couldn't have gone to a better buyer. Is it definitely Google though, they are a registrar that others use and the whois looks like it has privacy on it and not yet Google's classic nameservers.

    The domain is using Google registrar (domains.google), with whois privacy, I think Markmonitor is where Google has their domains.

    I don't think Google are heavily involved with NFT's, this domain sold to someone specifically in this niche - though they have got involved recently in a partnership with Dapper Labs

    If that's the price, it's a shame really.

    anyone that owns ai .com domain pretty much owns the sector and the three tech giants know the power of no competition and the power of a world class industry leading self explanatory. 2 letter .com and i reckon all 3 google facebook ana amazon would have been interested in buying this domain if they knew it was for sale

    it is a shame with the future headed to AI and $11m. Doesnt seem impressive enough for an impressive domain. imo. :)

    11 million USD sale price is decent.

    Personally, if I was the owner, 25 million USD would have been the bottom price I would have asked for(minimum offer) and aim to the 35 million USD.
    But it is important to remember that we are talking about 8 figures offers, it isn't easy for everyone to turn down such offers.

    *Note: Though when visiting ai.com there is still a for sale landing page.

    The sales page has been up for a while now, but it is a confirmed deal - see the SAW link for confirmation
