Re: bido closing down

Yeah, seems like in addition to taking the piss out of IDNers pretty much all the rest of the last 3 years has been a complete waste of time. This is one of the Traffics high flyers biting the dust. There was a time when they hung on his every word.

As many of you have heard already, Bido has closed. We will no longer be open for business. All existing transactions will be gracefully finalized and accounts paid out. Please make sure your payment details are current and accurate.

Since we broke the news on our Twitter account yesterday, the response has been overwhelming. The response has been very positive and there are many successful buyers and sellers commenting about the news. Thank you all for your kind words and support:

In the hours after we made the announcement, we have had some genuine interest from the top companies in the space. If you, your company, or anyone you know is interested in acquiring the Bido.com brand, list, and technology, please be in touch with us. You may reply to this email to start the dialogue.

Thank you all for two years of good times.

Regards,
The Bido Team
