Keane Ecclestone, a spokesperson for the domain's purchaser shared the reason behind the move. "One of my colleagues is always mentioning that all I seem to do is 'witter on about cryptocurrency.' This led us to the idea to acquire this rather appropriate domain name as a kind of alias for one of our crypto-related sites."

The domain, which was first registered in April 1996, will redirect to a popular site designed to provide guidance & reviews about casinos that accept cryptocurrencies.

Trust and confidence are essential elements to the well-being and success of customers in the online gambling space.

'witter on about cryptocurrency'

I have never heard anyone ever use this phrase. Paying $135k for that reason is stupid.

Me neither. The name is awfully close to Twitter, however.

Maybe someone will pay $100K or more for oogle, acebook or mazon in dot (insert extension of choice here).

Considering how much domains with backlinks and traffic sell for nowadays at market places, price is not surprising.


It does get quite a lot of traffic leakage from Twitter

Google also acquired Goggle .com/.net/.org recently. Domains sold for $270K at ROTD auction and then it got sold after to Google.

An interesting name as above traffic comment indicates, and great sale, but the PR line about one of highest in decade sales seems incorrect. NameBio, that perhaps list 15-20% of retail sales, show 289 sales more than $135,000 in the last 5 years. 39 were $1 million plus in last 5 yr.
