A couple of 5 figure domain name transactions on Monday. Weekdays.com expired at Uniregistry and closed at $29,723 at GoDaddy auctions. CultWines.com sold for $25,000 at Sedo.
Weekdays.com sold twice before, and was once owned by Oliver Hoger. It sold at NameJet in 2014 for $5,100 and resold one year later at NameJet for $8,100.
The domain name at expiry looks to have been owned by Alf Temme the gentleman I wrote about a couple days ago when NR1.com expired. NR1.com was purchased for $25,000 and then resold for $3,000 which is when Mr.Temme acquired the domain name.
Mr Temme is an elderly gentleman I hope he is ok. Michael Berkens published an article about him back in 2010 on getting sued for $2.4 million by Microsoft. Michael again published an article in 2015 when Alf sold We.com for $8 million.
CultWines.com sold for $25,000 picked up for just $388 on NameJet 2 years ago.
Cult Wines for those who don’t know (I was one of them) are wines that are high in quality, rare, and very valuable. They basically have a cult like following of deep pocketed collectors who are willing to pay top dollar.
There is even a wikipedia entry.
