$30 Million Sale of VOICE.com Sets New Record for Highest Cash Price Paid for a New Domain Name
In a sale that obliterated the record for the highest cash price paid in a publicly reported domain sale (since we began tracking the aftermarket in 2003), Voice.com has changed hands for $30 million. The news came in a press release from seller MicroStrategy Inc., a public company listed on the NASDAQ (under the symbol MSTR). The buyer was Block.one, a company that is using Voice.com to launch its new blockchain-based social media platform called Voice.
The press release noted that GoDaddy"facilitated" the transaction on May 30, 2019. Paul Nicks, the VP & GM of the GoDaddy Aftermarket, noted on Twitter that the company was paid an undisclosed commission (above and beyond the $30 million) to help consummate the deal via its Domain Broker Service.
