Arriba.com Rises Above the Rest on New DNJournal Chart After 6-Figure Sale to Cryptocurrency Company 

The four-day Thanksgiving holiday weekend in the U.S. began right after our last bi-weekly domain sales report on November 24th but, as has been the case all year, the domain aftermarket didn't take much of a breather. Two more six-figure sales came across our desk, topped by an impressive $200,000 sale of Arriba.com ("above" in Spanish) that Andrew Sievright at Domain Source Inc. made via Sedo. The domain was purchased by a company based in Chile that promote itself as "the easiest way to buy cryptocurrency in Latin America."

Tony Lam rang the six-figure bell too, banking $100,000 for EverydayWealth.com. That was 

also an end user sale with the name going to Edelman Financial Engines who plans to launch a new financial program on the domain next month. This was a great flip for Tony who has acquired the domain in 2016 for about $1,000 in an expiring name auction at GoDaddy!

 

Sedo filled the #3 and #4 spots on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with two more .coms - SafeMoon.com at $68,700 and EventHorizon.com at $50,000. Hypernames.co fillled out the first five with the highest non .com sale reported - Nomad.xyz at $49,000. That is one of six non .com gTLDs on the elite list, including three more in the top ten - #7 M.community ($38,888 at Sedo), #9 Collective.xyz ($37,000 at DNGear) and #10 MetaFB.org (sold by Youssef Aznagui for $27,088 in another Sedo sale).   

Everything else went to the .coms, including Rich Pennington's $14,999 sale of #17 VapeCoin.com in a private transaction. That made this week one of the few when the ccTLDs did not have at least one representative on the Big Board. They just missed that mark as the #21 sale was Spanish country code domain Instabox.es at $11,220 via Sedo.

One other note this week - James Iles at JamesNames.com uncovered a 273,000 ($360,360) sale of Curve.com that was made back in January 2020. Based on his documentation, we have added Curve.com to the 2020 Top 100 Sales Chart in our Domain Sales Archive where it ranks as the 9th highest sale reported for that year.

Now, here is a look at how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, December 5, 2021:
