In a blog post published yesterday afternoon, Coinbase announced that it would soon launch Coinbase NFT. According to the article Coinbase NFT will become “a peer-to-peer marketplace that will make minting, purchasing, showcasing, and discovering NFTs easier than ever.”

My guess is that Coinbase NFT will be found within the original Coinbase.com website, but the company also owns CoinbaseNFT.com. Whois records at DomainTools show that CoinbaseNFT.com is registered at MarkMonitor, and the domain name was created in March of this year.

Interestingly, Coinbase was not the original registrant of CoinbaseNFT.com. In fact, the company filed a UDRP against the domain name at the National Arbitration Forum. Historical Whois records show the domain name was registered under Whois privacy at Google’s domain registrar.

UDRPSearch.com shows the UDRP was filed earlier this month. The status of the filing is “withdrawn.” This means that Coinbase and the registrant of the domain name were able to reach some sort of conclusion prior to a panelist ruling on the case.

The reason I posted this is because there is Bored Ape Yacht Club and I own BoredApeNFT.com


Difference here is Bored Ape is different from Bored Ape Yacht Club so I am pretty sure I could successfully argue it if needed.

I don't think it is worth the risk. "Bored Ape" could probably make a pretty good argument also. :)

Honestly, that's really blatant. I don't think you would have regged that name if Bored Ape Yacht Club didn't exist.

If you check their site:

"The Bored Ape Yacht Club is a collection of 10000 unique Bored Ape NFTs"

If they want that name, they'll get it and rightfully so. I would delete it and not buy those type of names anymore.
