Rick Schwartz talked about his 2017 domain name purchases on Twitter.
Rick Schwartz said:
“So far in 2017 I invested in 49
#Domains Total of $44k. Average $895 per #domain. (Plus Hand Regs)”
I asked Rick about his hand registrations and he told me he also hand registered about 150 domain names.
So that is a total of about 200 domains in 2017 for about $45,000.
Here are a few domains that Rick has bought this year:
(Average price of the 4 domains above was $600)
He also talked about bitcoin and new gtlds:
#bitcoin, I put much more there than #Domains in 2017. However those domains were the engine that bought #coins to begin with!”
#bitcoin 4 me is a short acquisition period (about 2b over) followed by prolonged holding. #Domains are cumulative every year.”
“.Com = World Presence. ccTLD = Country Presence. City Ext =City/State Presence. 1500 New
#GTLD’s virtually no Presence. #Domains #Worthless”
“The argument new
#GTLD guys use is my 20 year plan. Problem is dif 20 years. Next 20 years will be of consolidation not expansion. #Domains”
#Bitcoin career is over at $5000. Whatever I have, I have. My #cryptocurrency career begins. #Domains will always be my first love!”
