With Bitcoin on the rise, are cryptocurrency domain names swinging back into action?

It’s no secret that Bitcoin has had quite a run over the last three months. If you bought Bitcoin back in March, you could have almost doubled your money by now. Of course, most people didn’t even consider doubling down on Bitcoin in March since it has been puttering along with very little growth for some time now.

Now, Bitcoin has outperformed most people’s stock portfolio’s over the last three months making investors around the world scratch their heads and wonder if they should jump back in.

With new price movement also comes lots of new press buzz, in short – people are talking about Bitcoin again, a lot. Back in the good old days of late 2017 when Bitcoin was all the rage, cryptocurrency-related domains were really seeing some solid activity. As the cryptocurrency market dropped, dropped, and dropped some more, interest in cryptocurrency domains waned as well.

Now I’m thinking, cryptocurrency feels like it’s going to be in the spotlight again (or at the moment it certainly is) so does that mean that cryptocurrency domains are also going to see a resurgence?

One of the things I’m seeing that could be an indicator that cryptocurrency names are heating up is what looks like increased bidding activity in the aftermarket. BitcoinCafe.com has 33 bids and BitcoinKey.com has 21 bids on Go Daddy auctions and every week I’m seeing more cryptocurrency names see similar activity.

Of course, I’m not really running any detailed analysis so it could be that I’m looking for this trend to heat up so I’m seeing it. What do you think? As cryptocurrency heats up is the market for cryptocurrency domains swinging back into action?

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

    With the rise of bitcoin, you will see blockchain and crypto related domains come along for the ride.
    Two worded and some secondary meaning blockchain words will do very well. When bc hits 10k again whenever that is that is when fomo will happen again! lol.

    Hey Morgan,

    I can confirm that I have seen a lot more activity lately in blockchain/crypto names in terms of traffic and inquiries but still many tire kickers.

    In my analysis of recent NameBio sales I have definitely seen an uptick in volume and pricing over the past 3-4 months.

    So I definitely think that there is a correlation between crypto prices rising and crypto related domain interest.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Yes, crypto activities are up again especially in OTC desk trading. Crypto domains are in great demand, hopefully.
    I have some crypto related domains at https://nameii1.wixsite.com/otcbid/domain

    It looks like that I experienced it on my domain as well, though, not sold but rose to $949 at namejet, I just hope the trend is back once again.

    Domain Game is Over.Domaining is Dead.
    Bitcoin is useless .Bitcoin is similar to something like pillow which every one sleep on it every day..Does every one need to register pillow related domain names? Of course ,not ..

    Did you all see the 60minutes last week about cryptocurrency and malware ransom?

    US govt and other countries will ban crypto because it is use for illegal activities-drug, money laundering, kidnapping /malware ransom payment etc etc …
    NO TRANSPARENCY AND IT IS NOT BACKED BY ANY solid insurance programs like the FDIC.

      Amazon.com Whole Foods and god himself Jeff Bezos accept Cryptocurrency. Facebook is starting its own Cryptocurrency. AT&T accepts cryptocurrency, Fidelity with Trillions of dollars lets customers trade cryptocurrency. you are mad because you don’t own any Cryptocurrency Domains. someone has a $2,000,000 starting offer for Cryptocurrency.uk at Uniregistry and that’s cheap imo. and btw your precious toilet paper the dollar is the most used tool for illegal activities-drug, money laundering, kidnapping /malware ransom payment etc etc … so watch the parade go by and people get rich of Cryptocurrency Domain Names.

        If big companies have their own crypto,then it is legit,more transparency as they are listed and have a physical address.
        But the govt will still want to regulate.. more revenue .
        BTW. “BullS” is legit
