Escrow.com today announced the purchase of the domain name NFTs.com for 15,000,000 USD. The deal was brokered for an undisclosed buyer by the experienced teams at Domainer and GoDaddy.com, whilst being facilitated by Escrow.com.
Although no formal plans have been publicly announced regarding a project at NFTs.com, Domainer can report that the buyer has associations with other web3 projects, such as DigitalArtists.com, which offers a curated web3 service to artists.
Lead broker on the deal, Matt Holden (formally working at GoDaddy, now part of the Domainer.com team), says: “It was a pleasure to work with all parties involved with NFTS.com, an incredible opportunity for the buyer to acquire a category killer domain and one of, if not the best, possible .com’s in the entire web3 space”.
“NFTs.com is a phenomenal asset, considering how NFTs are revolutionizing digital asset ownership, laying the foundation of the metaverse economy, play-to-earn games, and more.”
“The $15m price tag makes the purchase the 2nd highest published sale on NameBio.com and is, impressively, more than 7 times the highest published crypto oriented .com sale, which was Eth.com at $2m USD back in 2017.”
Ian Garner, Director at Domainer.com, added: “The recent purchase of NFTS.com is an acquisition all brokerage platforms would love to be involved in. It has truly been a privilege to have played our part in the deal and to continue to represent a very happy buyer.”
Jackson Elsegood, General Manager at Escrow.com, said: “The recent acquisition of NFTS.com is one of the largest web3-related transactions we’ve seen on the platform.”
