I don’t think I am going to auction any word domains again. Of the names that I sold at our DSAD auction last fall and spring, I have received 5 figures worth of offers. Yes, names I no longer own. They never changed the DNS so I still get the offers. Of course it could be the old “give me a fake offer, have me go back and buy it back, and then the offer disappears” trick. But I don’t think someone has tried to pull it 4 times on 4 different domains. In hind site I should have never auctioned any of those domains.
I’m not saying I’m not going to auction any names anymore. I think everyone should clean out the portfolio. I will be using Namejet and Sedo to move a few names in the next few months but I’m definitely not auctioning off my two word or one word names right now. They are climbing in value faster than ever. The junk, on the other hand, is losing value quicker than ever due to the options that are now open in the new Gs. Knowing the difference is the key to successful domain investing.
For me, the key is to sell enough names privately to keep feeding the domain buying beast. When they don’t is when I feel the need to auction names. I just have to learn to be patient. Something that has been difficult for me when I have profit sitting in front of me. I will let things run but I always sell before it runs to big profit. I need to change that.
On another note, I finally bought some crypto. Andrew Rosener and I had one of our nice little couple hour chats and he convinced me to just take some money and buy a bitcoin. Just have a little skin in the game. So I read the charts and decided I liked litecoin’s chart a little more and that it had a better chance to run. To me it looked like all it needed was to break 80 with volume and it could really run. Big resistance at 90 and 100 but after that it could go crazy So I took one bitcoin worth of money and bought some litecoin in the mid 70s. So far so good. I will probably put another 10K in as soon as I can move it into the market. It will give me something to look at while I wait for my domain offers to come in on the domains I’ve already sold.
On a third note. Yes, I hated watching Bama lose. The good news is I lost nothing because its only football which is still just a game. Second, I had no money on the game because I was plenty emotionally involved and needed nothing else. Third, it was much easier watching yesterday’s loss than on the last play of the National Championship game.
