discuss Discuss and Learn: Completed Domain Name Sales

Report Completed Domain Sales Here

For a while now I've been wanting a place to discuss some of the sales. I believe it's against the rules and the spirit of Namepros to criticize sales. But sometimes myself and others are curious about why a name has sold, especially for a high price and Google is only so helpful. I definitely would like to understand more.

Now for some rules:

1. Don't type the name of the domain being discussed. Instead of Google.com use "G/o/o/g/l/e dot c/o/m" or something similar. Screenshots images work too.

2. No one is required to answer your questions. Some people only want to share their sales and don't wish to divulge all of their secrets. Be respectful and be grateful they shared anything.

3. You can also use this post to praise/comment on the Report post and hopefully won't get downvoted here.

@blogspotter Your Second xyz sale was pretty impressive! Looking at Namebio, there's only been 19 domains with web3 sold and yours is the second highest to date!

This was the buyer's second counter and I could have gotten a bit more but the .io was listed for like 6K and that made me accept the offer in a hurry since dot io is still the top choice for crypto guys, though I am no longer sure...

The io owner has since then removed the name from SH LMAO
Perhaps one of us from here
But pretty happy with the sale

There is an existing thread to chit chat about reported sales that is different from the report your sales thread. Its rarely used except to move repeated clutter posts from the report your sales thread.

I think we should take what info we are given and be glad they shared and that should be enough because you are right many do not discuss any or all sales. Its voluntary. As is answering any questions. No one wants to be put on the spot.

With that being said, I guess it could work if A)—the seller has not requested “no more details” in their report and B)—if they are willing to answer your “curiosities”.

But just talking about other peoples sales randomly? Hard pass for me.
 
I have seen the other thread but that one looks like a confused version of what this ought to be. There are people reporting sales in that other thread that I don't think are reporting in the actual thread.

We ought to be able to discuss any domain sales to better ourselves even if the seller doesn't join in or is even a member of this forum. This could be great for understanding new trends and ideas. I didn't know what NFTs were until I read about them on this website.
 
So I found this interesting and worth sharing. Wondery LLC has multiple trademarks for Wondery going back to 2015. So are they the ones who probably just bought this domain:

https://www.namepros.com/threads/report-completed-domain-name-sales-here.83628/page-971#post-8575617

And if so, why? The domain that was sold was registered in 2020, years after trademarks existed so I wonder why the company didn't just snake it away using UDRP or whatever?

I am happy for the seller. I am just surprised that the domain sold instead of being taken.

Hi

depends on what the name is used for:
https://www.wonderybrand.com/

also, considering the sale price of the domain and the amount it would cost company to file udrp and lawyer fee + time, + they might lose the case.... then it would be cheaper to purchase the name, if they wanted it.

imo...

Hi

if and when the seller is not part of the discussion,
then the discussion can only be about "what if's and why's, various opinions, with no definitive answers."

so, you're don't learn anything other than how to expand a conversation based on premises filled with fallacies that draw false conclusions.

only the parties involved can provide factual "insider" information about the sale.

there is also chance you could offend someone during the discussion, which could deter others from revealing their sales.

still, i think if one wants more detail, then they should just ask the "right questions", when a member posts a domain sale.

imo...

A trademark in one category doesn’t mean anyone else can’t use that word in another category.
