Re: Investment opportunity?

Offer Description -

¢.com - The US's Junior Symbol of Currency in a Domain Name...

Included with this domain is the 'exact description' domain name, centsymbol.com. The two domains combined serve to create a viable financial identity that is uniquely potent and memorable.

You can use this identity for many types of US financial enterprise, and is particularly suited to uses that involve the following subject areas:

low cost
money-saving
99 cent type offers

How do you type in the ¢ symbol?
The ¢ key is not on standard US microsoft keyboards, however the ¢.com domain can be accessed by creating an intriguing 'challenge', which contains the ¢ symbol (as described on centsymbol.com) and the domain can be re-directed to any other domain name at will.

Alternatively, centsymbol.com could be the 'promoted' domain and ¢.com is the 'short' domain, that you can introduce site visitors/members to as they discover the site further.

Re: Investment opportunity?

it's a no brainer.

Bid: 3¢

the best of the description is:

An intriguing challenge.

That is a great way to get fantastic advertising ROIs. Even when your potential clients badly want to find you most will not figure out how to.

Re: Investment opportunity?

You know, it's visually appealing. If it were the dollar sign, I'd genuinely consider it a great domain -- very outside the box.

But the cent symbol is something I, as an American, don't even know how to produce on my keyboard. I'd have to look up key-stroke instructions online. And looking up instructions on how to write the name of a website maketh not a great domain.

They'd feel foolish just saying it.

Unicode tits are visually appealing but that isn't the first criteria for making a domain valuable. The first criteria is whether the unicode symbol is actually allowed in the domain:

For the $ symbol:

http://unicode.org/cldr/utility/idna.jsp?a=%24

Epic fail since IDN year dot.

So $.com its worth bugger all. ¢.com is worth exactly 1/100 of bugger all, which is considerably less than a cent.

But of course its on sale for Sedo and of course its got a shill bid. I predict a SnapNames-type scandal one day surrounding Sedo and their auction bids. There are more idiotic opening bids at Sedo than idiots on the entire planet.

Re: Investment opportunity?

Maybe there's a blogger out there somewhere willing to expose SEDO for selling domains that contain illegal characters under IDNA2008?

Most of them would probably prefer to re-post the amazing results of SEDO auctions and drink the koolaid at SEDO sponsored outings rather than rock the boat.

Re: Investment opportunity?

I've wrote to him asking the auction to be pulled. If he replies, I'll probably have to take it to the members section, unless Sedo are members here
