The domains, and were reported as sold

According to a Chinese finance website the domain name 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 whois has not been updated since March 2017 so not sure if and when this sale took place. (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. reported in August 2017 that the domain had sold for more than $150,000 and that NameBio had recorded a past sale of 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.

  1. Hello Konstantinos,

    The constant valuation fluctuations of Bitcoin, are seemingly problematic when trying to figure out actual sales valuations. We see huge problems with these Funny Money transactions. When it comes tax Time We see even more problems. This whole Virtual Reality Funny Money situation, in our opinion will surface as a negative.
