    XBT Selling Bitcoin Domain Name After Suing Over Trump Dossier

    "A tech company linked to the hacking of the U.S. Democratic Party in a disputed dossier about Donald Trump is selling its internet domain name, which happens to include the same three letters some traders use as shorthand for bitcoin."

    "XBT Holding SA, a privately held web-hosting and data-storage firm based in Luxembourg, is auctioning off the rights to xbt.com and has set the minimum price at 200 bitcoins."

    Thanks for sharing @Internet.Domains... A wonderful read!

    How is it, that a LLL.com such as XBT.com, has been in auction since January 5th, 2018, and up until now has had little to no press by the "domain industry"?

    TheDomains.com had written about XBT.com purchasing Servers.com for $300k back in late 2013. HERE

    It appears XBT is holding their own auction!
    Visit XBT.com to see the learn more auction. [the price on the landing page appears to be the current value of BTC,;not auction high bid.]

    To bid:
    Auction ends:

    ***Attached .PDF includes the auction terms for XBT.com.

    200 bitcoin is currently worth £2.1m

    Bit pricey for a LLL. com

    XBT is the marketplace ticker for bitcoin. Think USD.com, EUR.com or GBP.com

    Well it seems to have sparked interest in names starting with "XBT". I managed to find one, but they seem to be disappearing fast. :)

    ???

    Does that mean if XBT is a ticker for bitcoin elsewhere, then elsewhere = fake news? ;)
