According to a Chinese finance website the domain name BTB.com was sold for 500 bitcoins (BTC). At the time the article was written that would be about $4 million. But someone claims the domain was sold on January 6, 2018 so the price would have been about $8.25 million.
The BTB.com whois has not been updated since March 2017 so not sure if and when this sale took place. BTB.com (or BiT Brothers) claims to be the “Most Secure and Reliable Digital Asset Exchange”. They also claim to be in the Republic of Belarus that I highly doubt since the website is in Chinese and everybody working there seems to be from China.
DomainGang.com reported in August 2017 that the domain BTB.com had sold for more than $150,000 and that NameBio had recorded a past sale of BTB.com in 2014, for $38,350 dollars.
I must note again that no whois change has been made since March 2017 and I will just leave it at this. I guess we will never know the exact details and the truth about these transactions.

Joe Styler, Aftermarket Product Manager of GoDaddy and owner of TheaterTickets.com, announced the acquisition of the domain name TheatreTickets.com. The British spelling will compliment the already successful website located at the American spelling TheaterTickets.com.
The domain was acquired from a different ticket website located at razorgator.com. They own a few generic ticket related domain names so I don’t believe this was a cheap purchase. The domain was originally registered in 1996. Congrats Joe!
https://t.co/8AT8Kq2GpH We recently expanded our brand by acquiring https://t.co/il5V8VwXVD in addition to the American spelling https://t.co/ygLBS0lOW7. We now own the full brand er and re spellings and are excited about our continued growth and supporting our customers.

Finally, the domain name Swarm.com sold last year to Swarm.Fund. Swarm.com still redirects to Swarm.Fund. The domain name was sold for less than $1 million.
Swarm Fund is a blockchain designed for private equity: “It’s a fully decentralized capital market place that democratizes investing by using the power of the blockchain to open up high-return, alternative investment classes to smaller investors through asset-backed funds using cryptocurrency tokens.”
