12.01.2018 Want to have a cool domain?

Everything is wonderful about this news: the fact of putting the product up for sale, and the circumstances that preceded it!

The put up lot is dreamt by many companies that do cryptocurrency business. It is the domain name XBT.com. The starting price is 200 bitcoins (it`s about 2.76 million US dollars). The domain name is an abbreviation of Bitcoin on many institutional trading platforms, which makes it so desirable.

And the thing is that the current owner of the domain XBT Holding SA, together with a subsidiary company Webzilla, was accused of involvement in the theft of the data of Democratic Party of the United States, among which was the interrogation of Donald Trump. A year ago, Buzzfeed released a material based on the data provided by a group of researchers Fusion GPS, which unveiled the precedent. The article, in particular, reported that the former CEO of XBT, Alexei Gubarev, acted in the interests of the Federal Security Service of Russia.

Of course, the organization entered into a lawsuit, where it challenged the accusation. Proceedings are still ongoing.

According to Gubarev, because of that the company is forced to re-brand, as it suffered from significant reputational damage.

To participate in the auction, you have to make a deposit of $ 10,000 or 0.5 BTC.

And the product really is interesting! We can assume that this is a good investment. And its price, judging by the avalanche-like interest in the digital currency, will only grow!
