Speculators Seek to Cash In on Bitcoin Domain Name Boom
Another domain name player who wants to cash in on the surge in bitcoin interest is Australia-based broker Domain Guardians. The firm is currently touting what it thinks is the next hot bitcoin property, the domain name BTC.com. If it can find a buyer for the right price, it takes a commission from the sale.
There has been strong interest in the BTC.com domain name and an overall growth in attention to bitcoin-related domains.
Jen Sale, co-founder of Domain Guardians, added that the BTC.com domain fits in with the overall trend at the high end of the market for short, one-word domains that ended in the .com suffix.
She added that the demand for these properties was increasing, against a backdrop of growing interest in bitcoin-related domains, and claimed that her firm had brokered deals worth millions for such one-word .com domain names.
