Apart from the obvious potential target it has a dictionary meaning which is body of water outside of territorial waters and not enclosed by land - suppose someone who is interested in becoming a pirate might make a cheeky bid......

They some have some really domains up for sale this time around as well.....

Wakey wakey Nick 😅

I'm surprised they've decided to auction opensea.com, seems a bit rushed, if they don't get the publicity they require it's potential might not be realised...

I gave up coffee 11 days ago - so struggling with the mornings :xf.grin:

Do you reckon they reached out to them prior to sticking it up for auction and offered it for sale privately?

Would of seemed the sensible thing to do before putting it up for auction....

They are just trying to entice the .io to reach out or " HEY.....come out a "BUY YOUR EMD .com"

Foolish....the owner should just let it sit until "They Come" to talk ....

Owner would be better off listing it on OS marketplace as a NFT for (25K ETH) and let them buy their own name from their own site, now that would Marketing and Winning at the same time. For both parites
(** Assuming current owner has owned prior to .io TM**)

This auctioning on SEDO is stupid! For this name.

No company is going to compete for market share with that name and the volume of sales OP is doing,

"Open Sea" is a rather generic term, but the sales listing is rather transparent.

In my view someone would be silly to spend a massive amount of money on this, then use the term in the same field. That is a recipe for disaster.

lol well u can start being disappointed now

The term "opeansea" is very generic, like "goodsky".
If the owner doesn't use it for NFTs, then there is no real case for a TM.
I don't think a UDRP is valid here unless the use case is for NFTs.

This is just an opinion.

3m Bargain for opensea com

In August, digital marketplace OpenSea recorded over $3.4 billion in transactions across 1.67 million non-fungible tokens (NFTs). In July, its sales reached $325 million, following less than $150 million in June. The exponential growth corresponds to a shift in NFT content being auctioned, which may impact the development of digital strategies by brands and sports entities.

3.4 Billion !!

Maybe fine for Open Sea, the NFT business, but I don't see them paying in that range

As for anyone else starting a different Open Sea ...save the fish charity, a waterpark, a retailer, or whatever ...I'm going with nah. We'll see what happens

Outside of trademarks and fuss, people will probably hate me for saying this, but this domain is high thousands / 5 figure territory. Not 6 or 7 seven figures

IMO
Depends on whos buying!

Only a Fool l would allow .io to acquire under $1M LOL
OpenSea racked in a record $3.4 billion in transaction volume in august alone

Though yes outside the .io its not a 7 fig name, but really whos going to use now that it known as the World Wide NFT Billion dollar marketplace/

Edit: as I type this I get an email from OpenSea for my OS account just now lol

OpenSea dot com is generating a decent amount of traffic, around 9k this month.

Yeah, ofc it does :)
"> 9k" in excess of 9,000, probably a lot more than 9K.

Probably a lot of Opensea users mistakenly believe the business is on .com and afterwards realize it is on .io and other users just type in the .com address.
When I first heard about Opensea NFT marketplace in the news I google searched the .com version.
Upgrading from .io to .com might theoretically triple or quadruple or more their daily NFT sales.

If you buy this domain you are basically making a play to sell it to one specific end user, who is likely aware of the auction anyway.

The term is not nearly as valuable for any other use really. Outside that it is just a quality two word brand .com.

If you use the traffic or domain for TM related things you are likely going to run into issues very quickly.
