Last week, the Internet’s largest buyer and seller of collectible stock and bond certificates, Scripophily.com, published a press release deciding to solicit offers for its domain portfolio of 71 domains.
Per the press release, their CEO, Bob Kerstein, states, “These names are not core to our existing business strategy so the sale of them will not effect business operations.”
Most of the domains are .com with a onesies and twosies of .wine, .net, .co, .io, and .ac. In my opinion, the most notable domains are as follows:
- BestPhone.com – appears to be a BestPhone.com.ar website | No PPC Ads | an upward trend via Google Trends
- BancNote.com – Romanian for bills or paper currency
- BeautifulPower.com – moderately trending per Google trends | No PPC Ads
- BikerShow.com – moderately trending per Google trends | No PPC Ads
Per Bob, some of the 71 domains listed for sale have not been available for over nearly 15 or so years.
I reached out to Bob via Twitter to inquire about the backstory and whereabouts of most of these domains. Bob mentioned he developed a few of the domains with hopes of developing more.
However, he’s now considering early retirement, leading him to dispose of all domain names, excluding website content, to the right buyer(s).
