I recently wrote an article about Bitcoin getting close to crossing the $10,000 mark (which it did). This post spurred a good amount of comments, one of them which asked a question that I’m personally interested in that I’m sure many of my readers are too. Here’s the question from a MorganLinton.com reader named Anthony:
Morgan, a few posts ago you had discussed the correlation between bitcoin and domain names, both being digital assets. Do you know if any place where you can currently sell domains and get paid via bitcoin or other cryptocurrency?
So I’m drawing a blank here. I know that Uniregistry gives me a nice bonus in TopCoin, but I’m not sure if they take Bitcoin…given how innovative they are I wouldn’t be surprised if they do and if I just missed the memo. I don’t think Sedo takes Bitcoin and I’m 99.9% sure that Go Daddy and NameJet don’t. Given how much Bitcoin has grown in value of 2017, my guess is there are a lot of people flush with Bitcoin riches that could easily cross over into the domain world.
Seriously. The Bitcoin boom could be good news for all of us in the domain world. Think about it, what if you suddenly went from having $5,000 to having $200,000 – you might want to diversify, and since investing in 1’s and 0’s already made you good money, why not explore other options?
Whether you think that Bitcoin and domains are related is pretty irrelevant when it comes to this point. I’m fairly certain that people that now have lot more money than they did earlier this year are going to cash out and will re-invest some of their profits. When they do, something tells me they’ll be more open to assets like domains, moreso than ever before.
But what do I know? My guess is as good as yours. Still, this is MorganLinton.com so it makes sense for me to share what I think…even if you think it’s ridiculous. What I want to know, just like one of my blog readers – Anthony, is – where can I sell domains and get paid in Bitcoin?
This is where you come in – know place? Share it in the comment section below – or of course feel free to slam me and tell me I’m wrong. My comment section is fair game, all I ask is that if you read my posts, comment and let your voice be heard!
