  1. i was looking forward for Acquisition of to happen … finally it did happen .. nice work ..

  2. What a fuckin joke is

    If their service was a PROPER escrow (taking control of both the domain AND funds) & they had earlier offered other bells & whistles (multi currency), they wouldn’t have had competitiors, period

    Surry Francois, IF your ecop was a PROPER licensed, insured escrow service, they too wouldd’ve bought you out for $millions.

    As such, your ecop is worthless…catering to unknowing naive domainers selling $200 domains.
    No one selling high value domains eg $100,000 would trust some guy in his bedroom who might be betting on a “sure thing” with the float (in eg Apple shares)
