    My opinion is... Wow!!
    Lucky seller...

    My doubt is... Why?
    Is there any famous term...trend...or method or brand associated with it ?!

    Finger Painting is Modern Art, and with ModernArt(.)com being appraised at Estibot for 221K, I'd say fingerpaint.com for 75K is worth every penny....jmho.

    Even though the term FingerPaint has never sold (exactly or not, any extension) prior (at least NameBio listed), I think there is a company that would benefit a lot from the name as an upgrade. Would not be surprised if they are the purchaser:
    https://fingerpaintmarketing.com/

    Of course this is possible too:
    https://www.fingerpainting.de/

    Re price, well it certainly isn't low, but it just demonstrates if you have one buyer who REALLY wants the domain name, you can end up with a good price.

    It's an exact matched domain and Fingerpaints will sell for thousands of dollars. I appreciate seller skills to quote and convince the buyer to 75k usd.

    Smart seller!

    Another weird Godaddy glitch. When you type in the name it says the domain is expired but the expiration date is for next year.

    I can definelty see a compnay like crayola picking up that domain, why not?

    Exactly, and I don't think anyone is spending $75K to sell finger-painting kits, but as a match to their brand name.

    It's like Beer.com, no beer company will ever pay money for that, but there would be some interested buyers (albeit at a huge lose for the current owner) from something like Beer & Associates or Beer & Sons Lawyers.

    Brand is King.

    Because companies like Crayola are actually dropping EMDs like this, and concentrating on their core brand. After Google hammered down the search power of EMDs a decade+ ago, there is really no use to hold a pile of these on redirect, unless they include your brand.

    Disney dropped a pile a EMDs over the past few years, so did Shell (including ShellOil.com - they are not just a fossil fuel company anymore), Scholastic, and a pile of others.

    My guess is fingerpaintmarketing.com. 175 employees. 25 million per year in revenue. Owner has multiple companies producing 200 million annually. I would bet the house this is the buyer.

    If someone had offered me FingerPaint.com for $1500 yesterday I would have turned it down, honestly heck I'd still turn it down even after hearing the news.

    You can justify the price by giving any reason but reality is it's not that good name for $75k price. "FingerArt.com" will be far better name.
