    Guys, it's rare to see a domain like this expired.
    I've seen that a super premium domain BTM.com is in pending delete.
    A domains since 1997 expired this year in May.
    In your opinion:
    Who will catch it?
    What will be the sale price?

    It will either end up in namejets exclusive list, or dropcatch will get it and it will go into HugeDomains portfolio

    I am wondering why such a valuable name went into the pending delete stage.

    Owner could have sold it to any one for profit.

    Absolutely a large percentage of people outside the domaining industry have no idea what their domains are worth, or names they would like to acquire.

    Two years ago a gentleman working for a company doing well over $300 million in sales, asked me how much would the LL.com he wanted cost? I said it would be expensive, he said you mean like $5,000? I wanted to laugh but I said no add a couple more zeroes, he asked me if I was high? I said no I don't partake in drug use but if I told my friends in domaining you thought you could get an LL.com for $5,000 they would certainly think you were a horrible drug user.

    Actually looking at this name it's someone who should know, it's FMA.com who owns the name, I just texted @elequa to see if he can do something.

    You are not missing anything, I believe Thunayan K Al-Ghanim Aka @elequa has been selling a lot of his names, after years of never selling anything. Why he missed this domain I have no idea. If he texts me back I will update.

    The owner probably died and left no instructions as to his domain name portfolio.

    This happens more than you'd think and there were some high-profile cases recently.

    That is why I have renewed my best few domains till 2026 to 2028 so that if I expire, my best domains do not go down with me. And left detailed instructions for my family.

    It seems very strange that first he started to sell - even fma.com - and now this...

    I hope he is okay.

    This one is going to go high; probably the best LLL that's dropped in years. It's more than just the quality of the letters, it's the placement of those letters that also is important:
    B - Banking, Bitcoin, Business, etc - in the first spot is excellent for primary keywords
    T - Tech/nology, Tele-, Travel, etc - in the second spot is excellent for descriptive keywords
    M - Management, Music, Money, Mobile, etc - in the end spot to round it off strongly.

    My thought is this will go strong due to the inference to bitcoin, like BiTcoin Management, , BiTcoin Money, etc., or as a Business Tech Management kind of use. This is a great LLL.

    Currently over $40k at Dropcatch.

    so BTM.COM last sold for $48,605 on 2018-07-22 at DropCatch

    I guess we still don't know how Al-Ghanem missed the renewal.
