    Early yesterday morning I saw the news that Visa applied for a patent for a “Digital Dollar”, crypto currency for the US.

    I quickly searched all of the obvious names,
    Digitaldollar()com digiDollar, Digital-dollar, etc., all of which were already registered.

    I decided to try adding “the” and it was taken, then i tried using two hyphens, and it just looked good to me.
    (for a double hyphenated name)

    so I registered it and immediately added it on Dan with a $500 min offer.

    Literally 5 mins later I get an email that I’ve received an offer for $501.

    (American buyer, reverse IP check came back as Amazon)

    This is the 2nd time in a month or so that I’ve done this. (Posted about prior one)

    *Here’s where I’m sure I’ll catch crap from quite a few on here, which is fine.

    Did I accept the $501 offer, nope, countered.

    Did the same thing on the other domain I got an offer in less than an hr after registering.
    Has it sold, nope, but that’s fine, but I believe it will.

    Over the close to 1500 domains I have listed on Dan, the prior domain that I received an offer on less than an hr after registering and posted on here about, receives the 2nd most visitors of my Dan portfolio.

    My unsolicited advice: Don’t be afraid to do what you want to do, if there’s logic behind it.

    I’m not the most conservative domainer.
    I probably turn down a lot of offers that others would accept, but there’s reason behind it.
    It’s not a pride thing or an emotional attachment, it’s based on the NEWS.

    Gauging the potential impact of the news on the value of the domain and likelihood of this all panning out in favor of my domain appreciating.
    Weighing if it’s just going to be a quick fad or if it’s the start of something bigger..
    With the new digital revolution that is underway, I am not going to lose any sleep on my decision.

    Just my .02.✌️

    Perhaps you should write a book about it?

    Hi, Good luck on the sale.

    How do you check for reverse IP?

    I own lots of digital dollar domains, and I've even searched for the-digital-dollar.com before and thought it wasn't worth the reg fee. I was wrong! This is good news for the digital dollar market!

    So Amazon made you an offer for a double hyphenated version of a name that Visa are trying to patent
    (in the U.S) ?

    Did I read this correctly?

    Interesting.....

    The reverse ip search came back as Amazon, checked on several sites so if those are accurate than yes.

    that's pretty cool, I am wondering wtf they are playing at though :xf.wink:

    Can't see anything related to digital dollars & Amazon, closest I can find is they have a digital reward for no rush shipping and use the phrase digital credits

    1. I hate to burst your domain bubble here, but Amazon def did not make an offer 6 mins after regging the name. The ip address comes back to Amazon because whatever, or whoever is making bullshit offers is using Amazon servers.

    2. If this has happened more then once with newly hand regged domains, then there is def something fishy up with Dan. Sounds like some kind of bot is in play here.

    The First time I got an offer right after I reged it and posted about was from a business owner that builds websites.
    You can read that post for specifics if you’d like.

    He was legit, this is confirmed.

    This one was and American member and the ip address showed Amazon.

    I’m no reverse IP enthusiast, I’m just going off what the search results provided.

    I’ve had two bunk offers on Dan, I think both were from China.

    Domain bubble intact.

    Like .NJ said, Amazon themselves did not make you this offer.

    This is likely some trolling bot that is scanning new registrations or listings at Dan and making nonsense offers. Why? Because some people get a kick out doing such pathetic things.

    Are these completed sales? If not, in the future I would wait until the sales are completed to tell the tale.

    Just makes for a clear and stronger story.

    Best of success to you.

    It's always a good idea to look into the ip when you get an offer as it may give you some clues. Truth is, it hardly ever gives you the info about the end-user but rather the info of the ip block owner/renter/ISP.

    What tool do you use for the ip lookups?

    Have to agree with DomainVP. Over the years we have had dozens of 'Past' members who constantly post about refused offers, as if its some kind of badge of recognition of their domain skills. Some were so outrageous they became a standing joke.

    With 1,500 domains listed at Dan I would expected you to have enough real sales to post by now

    Offer from a Amazon in Thailand (TH) If that was an email from there I think most would head for the delete button, whatever the content. They could have at least used Amazon Brazil (BR) ip ;)

    Good luck with your efforts.

    May I add, as this is apparently the second such offer you've received within an hour of posting a domain for sale on Dan (and what appears to be a very quick acquisition of 1,500 domains) that maybe you just need to stabilize your thinking on the realities of domaining. That heading "New Personal Record" is a worrying indication of over excitement or even 'Blind-faith' without a braking mechanism

    Could it be that somebody is trying to bring some false-promises to your door, maybe as a wind-up but maybe something more untoward, take care

    I think someone at your back targeting you with fake offers each time. The aim might be to incentivise you to register more and more crappy domains. Just an opinion.

    Check that IP if not blacklisted:

    I think there are services that provide companies with notifications when domains including a certain range of names go up for sale on marketplaces or are registered. It still seems surprising that offer would come in so quickly, but that might help explain why some names get quick attention. Just one possibility.

    VB published an article on digital dollars in general within the month, and the term is getting a lot of general discussion in the news, it seems.

    BTW the double hyphen looks aesthetically nice on this one. Not saying we should rush out, hyphenated domains sell for lower prices and ratio of sales to for sale slightly worse than non-hyphenated, but I do find the visual look on this elegant for reasons I can't quite explain.

    I hope it turns into a sale.

    Bob
