    Assuming the domain name bitcoin.com (1 x "bitcoin" (7 characters) + TLD .com (king - TLD)) would be worth $ 100 million USD, the domain name bitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoin.com (9 (ma)x "bitcoin" (9 x 7 characters = 63 characters = max number of characters) in a domain + TLD .com (king - TLD)) would have a value of $ 900 million USD which would mean that the domain name bitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoinbitcoin.top (9 (ma)x "bitcoin" (9 x 7 characters = 63 characters = max number of characters) in a domain + TLD .top (top - TLD)) would be a priceless asset.

    I guess the buyer of BTC.com got lucky then, considering they only paid 1% of the asking BID for Bitcoin.com

    Ridiculous ^ $100M durfer come on now ? What would Bitcoins.com be worth ? Crypto.com as a whole sold for $12M

    It's not priceless, it just has no price as it is not for sale (at least that's the narrative).

    Maybe @Joe Styler / @Paul Nicks from GoDaddy can explain it.

    I know what you’re saying, I just don’t see bitcoin.com selling that high ... but I’ve been surprised before

    Similar story for the guy who owned crypto.com - he told everyone it was not for sale, and then he sold the name a few years later to MCO

    Everyone has their price eventually

    An explanation from GoDaddy how the (fake) listing was possible at all would still be interesting.
