One of my favorite apps is RallyX. It’s an app that lets you by shares in collectible cars at a set price. Once the shares are sold they aren’t traded for a year or so at which point the trading is open again and the market determines the price. Lately they’ve expanded into sports memorabilia, watches, and other alternative investments. The app is now so popular that most shares sell out in the first 5 minutes. I haven’t been able to get in the last few cars. When the laws changed that allowed fractional investments sites like this started popping up. But fractional domain investment hasn’t
Dividing up a domain is no different than dividing up a car. A preset value of the domain is determined and you divide it up into shares. After a year you open up the shares again to trade and the market will determine if its gone up in price. Sure there are some laws and paperwork but you could pretty much download the contract at RallyX and follow it to a T.
I think its an interesting concept and would allow people with smaller bank accounts access to six figure domains. And like RallyX, the initial cost for the app was in development, legal, and then the first purchased asset. After that the money is rolled in to the next asset. Of course I realize none of this is easy but compared to the obstacles 5 years ago this business model is much more doable.
