Russian idn.com got a 450k usd offer?

Came across this, if i understand it correctly it is a domenforum member that has tried to buy something from Bruce C and the reply he got via email is:

"Thanks for your offer. The IDN.com market is changing quickly. I recently received Sedo offers as high as $450,000 for a Russian IDN.com. Moscow.com in Cyrillic (xn--80adxhks.com) sold a few years ago for >$200,000. Another Russian IDN.com owner is getting offers as high as $400,000. Soon any IDN.com owner will have rights to the new ICANN approved Verisign .com in Cyrillic IDN.IDN gTLD (.xn--j1aef)."

Re: Russian idn.com got a 450k usd offer?

could be just a publicity post. just to get the message out and hope people stumble upon it and say wow! really? hense the conversation is only 2 posts, to the point.

*although i wish he is saying the truth about the 450,000$ idn offer at sedo.

Regardless, when i read this i want to put on my party hat and do the macarena dance.

Seems to be his standard reply. Got the same message when I was bidding for one of his names on Sedo. You probably won't find anyone confirming or denying this. Is he a member of this forum?

Re: Russian idn.com got a 450k usd offer?

I've talked to Bruce on the phone a couple times. He's a nice guy, but when it comes to him claiming offers, he's a BSer. If I had his portfolio I would do the same thing. More hype the better.

Re: Russian idn.com got a 450k usd offer?

I have exchanged a few emails with him in the past on a few names. Bruce appears to be a player and a time waster. When I thought we were closing deals, he kept dragging and asked for favours to help confirm translations and the best versions of different words and then just vanished.

This is his standard reply to anyone who makes an offer through Sedo, along with an excessive counter-offer for his own domains that makes Moscow.com at $200K look like a bargain!

Take a look at some of the garbage you can buy with a million dollars, and you'll understand why that domain was a deal: http://fmlistings.tumblr.com/

Here in Toronto it is about the land and it's location not what's on it. I can go and buy a 100 year old house that will fall apart tomorrow for a million $, but the land is worth at least 800k, we have had the realestate boom for the past 10 years, prices are soaring every quatter. You purchase a condo downtown, by the time it is build you don't even need to move in, just sell it and make easy 30k-50k on it. Good profit for 1 year of wait.

Re: Russian idn.com got a 450k usd offer?

does anyone here actually think that at this point in the process and with all the information we know at this stage there is any single IDN in Russian that can command 450k usd price tag?

Re: Russian idn.com got a 450k usd offer?

well...I am assuming none have occured, but boy do i want to be wrong on that assumption.

but regardless whether they did or didnt, i am curious if anyone thinks why any IDN at this point should be valued that high given that traffic as high as can be, most likely is going to be a fraction of what similarly valued english domains would have.
