Great Britain's symbol-based "pound domain" to be auctioned

Quote:
Now the pound's online home is for sale. On the afternoon of 26th June 2008, Great Britain's symbol-based "pound domain" will, along with associated property, be offered for sale at public auction.

London, England. April 14 2008 -- Moneyedge Limited wish to announce the sale of it's historic domain name, representing the British pound.

Arguably the pound's "home on the net", this is one of a handful of symbol-based domain names in the world. Richard Haigh, Director of Moneyedge, had this to say about his company's offering:

"This domain name has never been promoted commercially yet has many users curiously typing the name in to their browser on a daily basis. I would say that 99.99% of internet users still do not know that symbol-based domains like this exist. This is understandable, however, as they are extremely rare (only 16 in '.com') and until recently could not be promoted".

Good luck, Richard (BlackOps)!

Smart move, considering how much it was purchased for and future risks! if i'm them, and i could get a good price, i would cash out also.

I take it that there has been some more clarification over which symbols are going to be supported by the IDNA going forward?

Re: Great Britain's symbol-based "pound domain" to be auctioned

this to me says it has a short shelf life. (Currency Symbols U+20A0 – U+20CF)

If the financial crisis gets much worth Sterling itself might have a short shelf-life. The Euro Zone offers stability and is looking more attractive by the day.
