I concur. This was a steal for the buyer. Excellent deal. Whoohoo! Congrats!
i was expecting 8 figures as well, i think it went with the lowest it could go.

I tend to agree given what I know and what you've just said. 2 million for a 3 letter .com, that's good going... ImhoYou have to remember the NFT market didn't really start exploding til mid to late February. There were trickles of news about it several months before this and a short burst of interest around Aug-Oct of 2020 and some even a few years ago, but based solely on domain registration trends, the first real signs of days where we started seeing 100+/day of regs with NFT in the name started around Feb 16. After this, we all know what happened.
So it must be looked at in context. $2M was probably a very fair price at that specific point in time when they were negotiating the sale. It wasn't really until March/April then when we started seeing this surge reflected in domains sold on the open market like NFTdisplays.com for 13,000, NFT.app for 50,000 etc..
Yeah but the internet was useful to the average person... a monkey with eye shadow and a hat not so much.kinda like people of the 90s that had no interest in the internet. things change though, as, here we are.
