the domain name NFTs.com has sold for $15 million. The acquisition is the largest public domain name sale this year. Moreover, the sale of the NFTs.com domain is now the second-largest public domain deal ever. Domainer.com, the domain specialists and GoDaddy played a crucial role in getting this deal done. Escrow.com provided their escrow services and also confirmed the transaction.
The sale of the NFTs.com domain is a massive win for the crypto world. Aside from the 2019 purchase of Voice.com for $30 million, no other domain sale has come close in the last ten years. the Voice.com sale was to a blockchain company. Now, the two biggest domain acquisitions in the last ten years have ties to crypto. Interestingly, Voice.com is technically the most expensive public domain name purchase ever.
Both parties in the NFTs.com domain sale are anonymous, so the plans for the website remain unknown. However, the website now has a line of text on the landing page that reads “Powered by DigitalArtists.com Marketplace”. This is a web3 art platform that offers curated NFT drops and services to artists. Because of the links to web3 and the name of the domain NFTs.com, it will likely become an NFT marketplace or a hub that offers NFT services.
Considering the rise of NFTs in the last few years, the domain offers enormous potential and is a great asset. NFTs are a pivotal part of the web3 ecosystem, changing how we view digital asset ownership, supporting the metaverse economy, the P2E gaming industry and much more.
