Moniker Fizzles Out

"With total sales coming in at approximately $412,150, the Moniker auction didn't fare as well as the Rick Latona sale the previous day that netted well over $1 million. Some frequent auction buyers in the audience told me they passed on many names in the Moniker event because they felt the reserves were set too high. The biggest sale was Multivitamins.com at $45,000 (the Latona auction Tuesday had been topped by Rio.com at $450,000)."

Kinda makes you feel justified telling them to shove it up their Jack Seat a couple of years back.

Re: Moniker Fizzles Out

Take away Rio.com and they are very close.

But tend to agree, I have certainly more time for Rick and he does own and is aware of IDN.

Next year they will all be scrambling to get IDN in to their auctions hopefully by that time IDNNewsletter will be the place to be and getting ready to organise their first IDN roadshows. :p

Re: Moniker Fizzles Out

I read somewhere that Moniker's auctioneer didn't show up and they got one other at the last minute who kinda screwed up, like selling names off while there were other bidders, bidders were confused as to who had what bid in, etc.

But many mentioned the high reserves was also a deterrent.

I can confirm the auctioneer was a last minute emergency replacement.

Sounds like time to duck for cover. There are going to be court writs flying all over the place by the sound of it.
