    The name was hand registered at netfirms.com, at price of $1.99 back in 2016 Fall. Sold in 2017 Oct. Buyer came in with offer $20,000 USD. Accepted. Escrow traded.

    buyer called in June inquired the name available for sale. while, I have 3000+ names, I couldnt tell her if the name still with me or not.

    Asked her to email back with offer.

    No emails. Thought the sales would not happen. Didnt really care about it

    Email offer came in September. Accepted. Deal done in October.

    Back in 2016, I registered, if not hundreds of, but at least 30-50, Kids related names. The sold name was one of them.

    I did nothing actually. This is purely the grace, or if you want to call, luck. I don't deserve it, paid little money, no promotion, no negotiation, no nothing. smoothly done,

    Congratulations!
    Did you have a higher Buy It Now price posted, or just a generic "this domain may be available for sale"? Did you have the domain on a parking service, or your own landing page?

    I was joking since it hit this new crazy high today equal to your sale.
    I am not into bitcoin either.

    no parking, no nothing

    used to consider the names as a junk name. didnt pay attention.

    until this lady came in with offer, I realized the value of it

    yeah

    sometimes very tricky....like a while ago all ppl register ******lifi

    the market is something we dont understand....it is too big, all kinds of buyers over there. as domainers, just have to open eyes wide...think differently, and need to follow buyer logics

    Congrats :)

    If it's not NDA sale then you can report it to DNJ.

    Your domain store will get noticed and increase the popularity.

    Congrats on the sale.

    If its not under NDA, why would you not mention the name, it doesn't really help saying its Kid-related?
