    Three years ago today, GoDaddy's NameFind purchased the portfolio of Michael Berkens' Most Wanted Domains. Michael made one of the biggest splashes of 2015 by announcing that he sold the majority of his portfolio to GoDaddy, close to 70,000 domain names.

    It depends on a variety of things etc

    It adds liquidity to his existing portfolio and allows for more bigger price domains or to speculate on the new gtlds that started to appear on the market a year or do before that sale

    Just think had he put that lot on bitcoin he would now be a trillionaire if bought bitcoin in in 2015 and sold in 2017 etc

    It all depends on an investors strategy and whether or not they want or need to liquidity or a shift in focus to a different venture etc

    Every investor is different
