    Not really many uses for it, unless you are going to use the coin to purchase Granny Smith apples. Once you start integrating certain grades of technology to the coin, you would have got a c&d.

    Otherwise if apple bought it, that will be a a blow.

    Reg fee to $2K, isn't bad for a domain that reeks of TM issues, which would deter anyone from developing.

    That's a nice domain . I think the price is good. This domain only valuable if APPLE wants to buy it.

    It's good. Apple is a strong TM, but it does not extend into the field of bitcoin currency, doubt they could make any sustainable claim there. Closest would be Apple Pay. If you look at their two word Apple TMs pretty much always the second word or words are generic. Apple Link, Apple News, Apple Music, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, Apple Watch Edition, etc.

    $2000. is fine, you could have easily gotten say $3500. but anything over a thousand is a real sale.

    Congratulations on closing the deal.

    As soon as people saw AmazonBitcoin was registered by Amazon the interest level on this domain went up; which accounts for your inquiries.

    A win is a win, nice work.

    Awesome flip, good job!

    Also there is no TM issue here, 'apple' is a common dictionary word and cannot truly be trademarked. It can be used in domain names as long as it is not used to point to similar products/services Apple uses it for. Although a little cheeky, 'apple' in this instance could be referring to the actual fruit ;)
