    If true, congrats to the seller. LOL

    Also, should really be careful about announcing you bought a Twitter handle, on Twitter, where it is against the TOS.

    @bmugford To be spending that kind of money and have your Twitter account suspended ...thats a big "lol", but a tragedy

    Pretty sure Twitter must be aware of it, and considering these things an "exceptional circumstance"

    Hmm not sure what was the bulk of the deal here, the dot-com or the twitter.. but what a great example of beauty is in the eye of beholder. Full stop.

    At least the singular is owned as well.

    I feel like there has to be more to this deal. I highly doubt they just contacted some random domain owner and a $3M domain sale was the result. It seems like a major outlier that likely has more behind the story.

    Archive.org showed that it forwarded to Viodistribution.com, this excerpt is directly from the ABOUT section on their website:

    Founded in 2007, Vio is an independent distribution company providing global solutions for record labels, artists and content owners. Our diverse distribution channels help our partners expand their global audience and collect more revenue. We distribute music, videos and NFTs across leading platforms worldwide. Our knowledgeable in house team has decades of collective experience providing promotional, digital marketing, licensing and blockchain related services.


    So looks like they acquired it from another company in the space who weren't really using it effectively, but knew it's value which is why it cost them 7 figures. This looks to be the outlier information, but, imho with the valuation that's been reached I think with this end user....it probably didn't matter who owned it.....they had an overwhelming need for the name. When that situation occurs it ends up being more like a "how long is a piece of string" type of negotiation imho...

    Amazing sale, i don't understand crypto, but the market for domain names in this space seems crazy!

    We've had info of 2 seven figure deals (crypto related) in the last 2 days (this and Exodus dot com).

    Look like a bogus claim that fantokens.com has been acquired for 3 Million US Dollars. It seems there is a big plan to swindle people's money.

    There is certainly a lot of BS in the crypto field.

    Most of these projects will use marketing fluff and other tactics to hype their shitcoins.

    Who knows what to to believe.

    a quick look at their CEO Alexandre Dreyfus & you'll see he's a domain lover with over 750 names.

    he even wrote he enquired about NFTS.com but was quoted 31 million 😅

    My guess he acquired it himself personally, and sold it to his company for $3M.

    It was acquired from hugedomains a while back, so I would guess probably under $4K, to a company in Malta.

    I have had talks about domains with this guy, and he offers like $1-2K for domains that are no brainers in the 5 figure range.

    Is that a possible tax dodge of some kind maybe?

    Yes, he is the founder of CHZ, which has gotten alot of PR attention from Binance, and their CEO CZ, he could have given him $3M in tokens, and the seller probably dumping them slowly on the market.

    When he contacted me his IP showed up as Thailand, so the above scenario is probably not the case.
