Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday JANUARY 2nd, 2018

Jan 03 2018


I have always invested in things I know.  Things I see.  Things I use.  It has made me hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.  But I have gotten burned lately by things that appeared as one thing but were really another.  Let’s take my recent Nike trade.   I have always collected shoes.  Over the last year Nike shoes began to start selling out in minutes.  New releases are so hot that they are double the price on StockX the next day.  It wasn’t just a couple, it was pretty much most of the sneakers. And all on their own site so they keep all the money.  Clothing was the same.  They were often sold out of clothing too.   Stock X showed the resale market for Nike over taking Addidas for the first time in a while since Adidas became the hot shoe.  I bought Nike options hoping they would crush earning.

Not only did they not crush them, they admitted they greatly reduced quantities to make the shoes appear scarce.  They could have sold tons more but they wanted to create buzz.  Everything I saw was fake.  Cool if you are a shoe collector, bad if you hoping their stock goes up.  The numbers were ridiculously low with guidance for next year just as bad.  China sales were great so the stock hasn’t actually changed much but it reminded me that much of what you see in a company on the outside isn’t what is happening on the inside.  I need to do more homework when I put my money in.  Crypto returns got me feeling invincible and while that can really rack up the returns, it can also make you lose money quickly.

It is true in our domain investing world.  I got burned on .WS because half the ownership team told me great stories of what would be happening and the push ahead.  Turns out the other half of the ownership wanted nothing to do with it and the push didn’t turn out to be the marketing program but pushing out the owner I worked with out the door.  Lessoned learned.   Check the entire ship before you go sailing.  Here are today’s names at auction today.  Click for current price

Godaddy Names With Bids

All names chosen by me Shane, or Josh . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing. Everything I say is based on my own research or is opinion. Do your own due diligence. That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct. I hand choose my names but I am paid to make this list by the auction houses, individuals that are auctioning names, and Godaddy affiliate links. Keep that in mind and only buy names that YOU think are good

    What has me worried about Crypto is the complete lack of real government reaction either way.
    While Bitcoins in way need to be traded in integers, the psychological $10,000 threshold blows past the transactional limit where anti-terrorism reporting comes into play. I see governments really using that as the excuse they need to kill these currencies they have no control over. And yes .. in theory they don’t have “control” over crypto .. but the moment they make such transactions “illegal”, the market will certainly melt as big “legit” players cash out.
    Also .. kinda hard to ignore the fact that a lot of these currencies are controlled from above by big players. I feel it’s a bit like online poker .. where in theory most are actually legit .. but in reality you have no clue .. and more importantly .. no way of really knowing the truth.
    Finally .. the claim that crypto is the future I think is also a little too fuzzy and bright compared to the reality that most people have no clue about the actual real technology behind it .. and any sort of critical mass of average citizen users is a very very long way away.
    While they are all worth billions on paper .. they also theoretically still aren’t worth anything or backed by anything. Some argue the same with national currencies .. but the truth is that there is most certainly support and security behind national currencies (not always great support in some cases .. but still far better than nothing).

      Yes, dead just like the internet. A fad. Lol. Genie is out of the bottle. Btc = freedom from fiat criminals. Governments will love it. Every time I need to cash a significant amount out it goes to an exchange then my bank then its taxed. Voila the government gets it’s pound of flesh. Like crack for crackheads.
      Just like legal pot the $$$ will be too hard for them to resist. For sure.
      The sky is definitely not falling.

      Nudge nudge dgb + Ltc + ada = long.☺
