Blockbuster $15 Million Sale of NFTs.com Blows the Roof Off Latest DNJournal Charts - Non .Coms Make Some Noise Too

After having four-six figure sales reported in our last bi-weekly report, I went to bed last night thinking this week's report would be a relatively quiet one since no new six-figure sales had been reported over the past two weeks. When I woke up this morning, everything had changed with the news that NFTs.com had been sold for $15 million in the second largest publicly reported domain sale of all-time (only Voice.com at $30 million in 2019 has been higher). Of course, an explosive sale like that makes the kind of noise we all love to hear as it underscores the value of a great domain name.

Premium domain brokerage and acquisition specialists Domainer.com worked with 

another team of brokers at GoDaddy.com to acquire NFTs.com on behalf of an as yet unnamed buyer, with Escrow.com also playing in key role in facilitating the landmark sale. Congratulations are in order for all who helped make it happen. 

Even though that sale obliterated every competitor in its path from a sales price standpoint, both non .com categories - ccTLDs and non .com gTLDs - still managed to shine. In fact ccTLDs took three of the top five spots on our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart and a half dozen places overall. Their haul included #2 IT.TV, acquired by Intis Telecom,  the owners of IT.com, for $83,160 with broker Igor Furdyk handling the acquisition for Intis via Dan.com. Sedo then stepped to the plate and hit another one out of the park with their $80,466 sale of #3 Stuff.it. Braden Pollock at LegalBrandMarketing completed the ccTLD power trio in the first five with a $75,000 sale of #4 (tie) Raven.io. Sedo had the other half of the tie at #4 with their $75,000 sale of Afloat.com.

The non .com gTLDs showed plenty of muscle too, piling up seven places on the elite list, including four in the top ten, led by Sedo's $49,000 sale of #6 Wallet.one. Five of the charted non .com gTLDs wound up in Sedo's column with the other two going to Swetha.xyz for her $40,000 sale of #7 Kinetic.xyz and a $20,000 sale of #14 Psychedelic.xyz

 

With the ccTLDs and non .com gTLDs combining to claim 13 chart entries, this was one of those rare outings where the .coms did not hold the majority of the leader board. They had to settle for seven places, including one Alex Verdea produced through Afternic where he sold #19 (tie) VesselTechnologies.com for $14,888

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending Sunday, July 31, 2022:
