    Hello everyone!

    Aron here. I used to auction names at Heritage Auctions and I've owned and sold millions of $ in domains myself. Currently own March.com, Napkin.com, Symbolics.com (first .com registered etc.)
    Ok. That's me :D

    We are working on an idea that would allow ANYONE to invest in valuable domains.
    I want to gauge the interest of the domaining community.

    Could you please express your interest here: https://forms.gle/bVKr4ZR1z4p7b52M8

    When you think of two letter .com names, three letter .com names and one-word .com names,
    the first thought, for most, is UNATTAINABLE. right?

    What if we could change that?

    I want to know how many people might be interested! Let me know here and share the link with others.
    https://forms.gle/bVKr4ZR1z4p7b52M8

    The best way to discuss this is for you to enter your email on the form -- and then you'll see my email and we can talk further.

    Thanks!!
    YES, it's a bit of a secret for now. We'll tell all the domain blogs soon.

    Hey Aron,

    It sounds like a great idea, best of luck and keep us updated on nP.

    Symbolics.com :xf.love:

    How long have you been the owner of this domain and for how much did you bought it for if it’s ok to share?

    This sounds like tokenizing domain names. Similar strategies are being tested with valuable real estate.

    Is that the angle here?

    Hi

    an idea like this was conceived years ago, where you could invest in shares of a premium domain
    and supposedly get share of profit when the names sold.
    I think rick the wiz kicked it off.

    imo..

    Contrib has an interesting take on investing but it’s geared towards developing the asset. Owning a stake in a domain itself is an interesting concept, one with many hurtles as I can see.

    There are a few ways to skin this cat (no distress intended for any cat lovers out there) but no one has come forth with an easy way to do this...been tried once or twice here before with not so great results. I, for one, would be interested in a 'share' type of investment of 2L or word .coms.

    If you're talking about fractional ownership there are several people working on it. Even RallyRoad could be adding high end domains soon.

    Not sure if the project is good or bad or interesting or not interesting for me - there is lot of text in this thread, but when it comes to any real information, there is almost 0 bits of useful info...

    Imo tell us exactly what you want to discuss, and what your project is about :)

    wanted to try something with a small group and not tell the world the plan just yet.
    thanks!
