Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday October 9th, 2017

Oct 09 2017

How many of you are investing in ICOs?   On one hand I like the idea of being able to invest in new companies.  On the other hand most people are going to get smoked and lose all their money.  I really don’t care about most people.  I have enough friends and family to watch out for, not really interested in being the guy that protects the masses.  There certainly needs to be some regulation when it comes to accepting people’s money. I don’t even think most people know what they are investing in.  All you have to do is say you are going to disrupt some industry with blockchain.

With ICO,  just like bitcoin, you are only going to hear from the people that made money.   Gamblers never check in daily and tell you about their losses.  But you sure as Hell are going to hear about the wins.  The “I’ve been in it a while” but then you check their tweets and there isn’t any past mentions.  That being said, there is money to be made.  And many reading this will make it.  Just do your own diligence.  Unless you are just gambling, and in that case, good luck.  If you do well, feel free tip the poor nurseryman.   Here are today’s names, you have to click to see current price. 

Quote of the Day:   “What we learn from history is that people don’t learn from history”  -Warren Buffet

Domain of the Day:  Color + animal  is always a good investment

Namejet , DropCatch, and Sedo Names at Auction    Not sure of but this one has a four figure bid.  Ends today   Ends today but I’m not sure it will make reserve   Sets the tone with the name    Solar and alternative name    Somebody likes this one.  Not many bids but the ones that are good  This thing got a HUGE first bid.   Pretty sure that will be final price

 Godaddy Domains That I Like With Multiple Bids   If you’ve ever wanted to buy the domain of a now defunct social network   Can’t go wrong with a .   Yeah, like I was saying   And are even more.  Usually four figures   Don’t want anything slipping out of your hands   Under $150 would be a great buy IMO.  Way under that at press time  natural alcohol or the Native American cigarettes    Startup, incubator name all the way   Sounds powerful with lots of money.  Crossed $400  Sounds like a beach but actually a Barcelona based poet  “Navigating the dating world”

Godaddy Names With One or No Bids This is what marketing research is in today’s market Not huge value but there are a lot of them out there Love to have the singular but the plural isn’t too bad. No bids If there isn’t something called this now there will be eventually Not sure what you need to be reverted from but we can help. No bids Sounds like a place to grab a beer

    You have to separate the companies from the technology. ICO is just another way to raise money. There will always be scam companies no matter which methods they use to raise money. It is up to the investors to do their own due diligence here.

      I think we all agree the technology is the future. What I see is a lot like 2000 when every company that said the word “Internet based” had money thrown at them. There will
      be big money in understanding which companies have a real business model

    After yesterday’s blog I thought it would be at least a few days before seeing the words “Bitcoin” and “Blockchain” back here !? lol
    I can also tell you that yes .. most (not all) gamblers don’t talk about their losses .. but I’m thinking the same holds very true in the domain industry! 😉

      Domain industry is a little different. You never really lose money until you sell and since you never sell you feel like you haven’t lost money.

      1. Ategy

        In some ways I’ll agree with you .. but not completely. Fact of the matter is (based on what I’ve seen at NamePros and other places like former Domain Sherpa Portfolio Reviews) .. that the majority of smaller/newer domainers have garbage domains that will never sell and are losses at purchase. For newcomers with a handful of domains it makes no real difference .. but a lot of new domainers jump in and invest a significant chunk of money (to them), and as such, because of the maintenance cost of renewals I’d say many portfolios are indeed losses before “theoretical” sell because the vast majority (if not all) of their names will never sell.

    Shane, I just started investing in crypto the first week of August. im invested in Bitcoin, Ethereum and a bunch of different altcoins. Unfortunately I bought a sizable amount Bitcoin and Ethereum at their all tone highs. Overall I haven’t made money on the altcoins. I did on some but the prices tanked on others and I am holding them. Finally I’m now in profit overall with the price of Bitcoin hovering around the $4600 mark. Of course that’s if I sold today which I won’t. I haven’t invested in ICOs yet. There are a few good ones out there and probably will. For every good one there’s about 10 bad ones. People just need to research the companies. From my limited experience I do think investing in cryptos is a better bet right now than domains. I wish I could sell my domain portfolio which consists of about 4500 names to invest in crypto. It’s hard. Have had lots of domains for auction on namejet and other venues and most are worth thousands. Most fail to get that minimum bid however or fail to meet my reserves which I think are very conservative when I do list with reserves.

    I have a good amount of money invested in Crypto. I’ve also purchased a few good on Namepros recently from domainers that wanted the money to invest in Crypto. I think they are both good investments and continue to buy both especially at times like this when all Alt coins seem to be coming down.

    BItcoin is killing it because everybody wants the free coins as a result of the upcoming hard forks. This is putting all other Cryptos on sale – even the good ones.

    If anyone has some good for sale, let me know.
