Topic: Bird.com & Fish.com fetch millions at ROTD Auction
Bird.com Sold for $2.5m; Fish.com for $1.6m at ROTD Auction
Looks like the same person bought both domains, according to Elliot Silver from domaininvesting.com.
These are some pretty huge sales, especially when considering it was most certainly a domain investor who bought them and not an end user. Perhaps I'm wrong, and we should learn more details soon, but if the same person bought both and it happened at ROTD, then I think it's very fair to assume it was a domain investor.
Bird.com has been sold for $2.5 million at today’s Right of the Dot live domain name auction. Fish.com was the next domain name up for auction, and that domain name was sold for $1.6 million. Based on the location information shown on the bidding page, the winning bidder appears to be the same for both of these auctions.
Bird.com and Fish.com have long been owned by TABcom LLC. Bird.com does not resolve to an active website at the moment, but Fish.com has a fully developed business operating on it. Interestingly, Carlo Tabibi, one of the principals of TABcom, was chatting on Clubhouse as these two auctions were concluding.
Once the payments for these domain names have been made and the domain name transfers are completed, I am sure ROTD will report the sales to DNJournal and NameBio for archiving. These will undoubtedly be two of the largest domain name sales of 2021. From my recollection, they are two of the largest live auction domain name sales in many years.
