Perhaps just designed to generate some interest.

The BIN is 900 bitcoins just under usd400K

Not so odd if you take into account the seller wants to acquire bitcoins. bitcointalk.org is full of people with bitcoins to spend

Re: Bitcoins for 2 character .com?

There is no reserve on this auction so I guess the seller is going to get creamed and the buyer will be very happy, this is a xxx,xxx name?

looks like it

I checked a few hours ago and it was at 20KUSD worth of bitcoin(the highest bit).. that's just stupid. the auction thread gets zero exposure. Im sure there are plenty of people who would swap USD for Bitcoins just to pay this guy 1/10 of the name's value

I asked the guy and "The reserve is 40 BTC" does not make sense?

Re: Bitcoins for 2 character .com?

Far too cheap, especially considering Bitcoins themselves are risky assets, something smells fishy...

55BTC for a numberletter domain sounds about right.

Key phrase "at the moment". Does it get any type-in traffic?

What are '3G" domains worth now, they were all the rage once.

Unless you can monetise it quickly (and manage it quickly SEO wise), by the time the traffic arrives it'll be all over. Better off to buy 8k.com now, develop, and be ready. :^)

3G.com - worth quite a lot I would think?

I would expect to see a quick flip by the buyer of 4K.com with a substantial profit.But I am often wrong.

Re: Bitcoins for 2 character .com?

There is going to be a limited market for 4K Resolution because unless you have 120 inch TV, the resolution of the human retina is going to be the limiting factor. In other words you can keep increasing the resolution, but unless the screen size increases, it is going to look the same.

Re: Bitcoins for 2 character .com?

http://isthisretina.com/ is quite good for calculating whether a given display will appear "retina" to the average eye.

4K pictures look rather lovely even when just upscaled from blu-ray. Native 4K movies are very very cool.

Doesn't mean I fancy the domain much though. Its 4K this year, the TV manufacturers will ensure it will be something else in 2-3 years ..........
