BTC.com launched today after being leased from company paid $1 million for domain
#1
THURSDAY,14 May 2015 DOMAIN NAME WIRE

According to the news from Domain Forum of China on May 14th,domain name buyer ran into trouble, so Bitcoinist leased BTC.com and has launched it as a site for cryptocurrencies.


BTC.com
BTC.com launched as a cryptocurreny information site after a long term lease deal for the domain name.
The $1 million sale of BTC.com last year raised a few eyebrows, even in the bitcoin-fueled crytocurrency bubble.

The timing of the domain name sale was great…for the seller. Buyer GAWMiners quickly ran into financial (and perhaps other) trouble. But a UK company stepped in to carry the torch and develop the domain name.

Bitcoinist LTD leased the domain name from GAWMiners in a deal lasting until 2018. It launched BTC.com today as a news site for cryptocurrencies.

BTC.com includes news, user forums and beginners guides.

Bitcoinist is also looking to license subdomains, such as exchange.btc.com, mining.btc.com, and wallet.btc.com.
