    100,000 x 20% compound growth for 13 years = 1.070,000 :) Believable or not? I think its not beyond the realms of possibility.

    Reminds of an Iain Banks book - The Business

    It's a thriller/satire on Global Capitalism - quite funny in places and a good read

    They didn't try and buy Wales though.......

    Don't want to take the thread to far off topic.....

    Got all his books - he is one of my favourite authors - also did a lot of sci fi / space opera books under Iain M Banks - sadly passed away in 2013 - RIP

    The wales.com site explains its purpose at https://www.wales.com/about-walescom

    Interesting that cymru.com redirects to team-cymru.com - Cymru is the Welsh language name for Wales.

    The value of the domain name may be increased by increased pressures for constituent nations of the United Kingdom to leave the UK - polls now show a majority in Scotland wanting independence from the UK. I regularly see serious entities using the .scot extension.

    The Scottish government use .org - the .com is available for sale - the owner is probably asking a lot of money for it.......

    I don't mean you are wrong. But Wales can be a country only in a secondary meaning of the word country, not in its main meaning.

    3 mil is definitely way above market price Brad. Somewhere around 1 mil maybe?

    Yes scotland.com is open to offers it says https://www.scotland.com/corporate/inquire/

    The site implies they have a trademark but UK trademarks office only has 6 registered marks for the standalone word Scotland, probably not them, and none registered for the phrase Scotland.com. I'd expect independence to increase the value of the name.

    If I had the money I would. And build it up in a nice looking house. As is, not so much. I have been reading about simular stories for a few years like https://liberland.org/en/
