Is sharing your domain portfolio as risky as sharing your crypto portfolio?

We’ve all seen it happen time and time again over the years. Someone posts their crypto portfolio on Twitter and immediately people jump in to tell them to delete the tweet, fearing they’ll become a target. Some of the most famous people in crypto use aliases to hide their true identity and do their best to keep their holding confidential.

The fear is – if you post your holding and people find how much money you have, you’ll become a target for scammers and in some cases kidnappers. There are some pretty scary stories out there about crypto kidnappings, here’s one if you want to read about it.

So this begs the question – do domain investors face the same risk? Popular platforms like Efty and make it possible to share your entire domain portfolio, or at least the domains you have for sale. While you can hide your name/company name, many investors are a-okay with keeping information about who they are and what domains they own public.

This week I was talking to a good friend who has done pretty darn well with crypto. He said to me, “why do domain investors seem unafraid of posting their multi-million dollar domain portfolios publicly? Wouldn’t that make them a target just like crypto investors?”

I didn’t have a great answer for him, but it certainly does have my gears turning. What do you think? Should domain investors keep their portfolios private like so many crypto investors do or is there less risk in the domain world?

I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!

    To some extent share with your close friends only if you trust they won’t go register the .co when you sell the .com.I won’t be sharing anymore of my names because of a recent incident.

    I sold a .com for 5 figures and next thing I know ,the .com is registered by someone and priced at 5k. What is wrong with this people. I hope they don’t go pitch to buyer of my .com .

    As for portfolio sharing, share with only your close pals you can trust ,who are not loud and can keep things private.

    This is one of the reasons, I never share what I acquire or purchase of the day on namepros since I joined. If they discover I own a particular name through their research, I don’t care but I only discuss my stuff with only 1 or 2 persons who also tell me theirs .

    Hi morgan, thanks for this. as a newcomer, I realize now that it is better to be more careful online (in this niche area) than be sorry later. so I have taken action. I removed the link to my portfolio and some domains I had listed in my bio (on twitter). further, I removed tweets that reference new acquisitions. I do not want to be the path of least resistance.
