    I just came across the sale of domain name CrosswordPuzzles.com for $249,980.

    Looking at similar sales, iPuzzles.com sold for $358 only.

    Now, undoubtedly, CrosswordPuzzles is a great name but $250,000 for it while only $350 for iPuzzles.com?

    What do you think?

    1) CrosswordPuzzles is a great name and deserves that value.
    2) The seller was a good negotiator and got a great deal.
    3) iPuzzles went way cheap.
    4) All went for a fair value
    5) Other thoughts?

    Kindly share your thoughts, analysis and opinions on this one.

    I believe it says everything about the seller/buyer, and less about the real value.

    I have crosswordpuzzle.app and wordpuzzle.app, lets see if anyone want those for cheap.

    Put me down as a 1

    I can appreciate this price tag as I'm a big fan of crossword puzzles. The New York Times crossword puzzle is my go to entertainment/time killer while flying, which is 6-10 times a month. I get enough mindless entertainment in front of the TV when I'm home so I don't bother with the inflight video entertainment options.

    Though I have no proof of this, -- other than my own well placed, high opinion of myself...:xf.rolleyes::xf.wink::xf.grin: -- I suspect true crossword puzzle fans are a very intelligent group of people that could be a very lucrative and loyal niche market for CrosswordPuzzles.com's advertisers.

    2. $250k is a huge amount to pay for any domain let alone a 16 character name that can only be used for one thing.

    DNPric.es shows it was previously sold for $210,000 back in 2007.

    Many domains sales fake. That's mean domain transferred and buyer receive money bit this operation not for domain but for money laundering as we see in cryptocurrency market.

    I think .app is yet to see some attention. It's still new and hence, we'd have to wait that out!

    Many are real sales too! We'd have to rely on the majority of sales and considering that CrosswordPuzzles earlier sold for 6 figures, these are the kind of sales we'd have to trust!

    Yes exactly. But 20% return in 11 years is not justified.
