Very few times are the failures discussed. Unfortunately looks like the http://BetX.com project is going in the can.

Early days, but classic example of poor planning and misuse of a premium name. The domain will go back to market for the right user to get the most out of

Selling the premium first name domain http://Hayley.com for a one-off BIN price of $15,000. Proceeds directly to http://EFK.org - not only do you get a premium name but you help build a school for those in need. Win-win. So hit that BIN.


I love finding unique domains and biding small amounts. This is what happens when you are an early adopter! I wish I had friends and family as passionate about this as I am. Their loss! #NFTCommunity #collector @NamebaseHQ
