I picked up www.bitcoincart.org

Im trying to determine whether its best to sell this domain or develop, if you were to offer what do you think it would be worth?

Thanks

Well, a domain listing firm would probably price it for $3000-$5000, but they operate on a crap-shoot of hoping that some of their domains will sell at the exorbitant list prices.

Realistically, if you can find a buyer who has a real business use for the domain you may be able to sell it for about $500 (unless you get lucky).

If you feel you can provide a good service, and compete successfully with rival businesses, developing it may be the best way to go.

Note that I'm not an expert and this is just from my limited knowledge, I could very well be wrong.

EDIT: I didn't notice that it's a .org, for a business that probably reduces the value. As a .org it is perfect for an open-source project though.

You could donate the domain to our effort to make an Open Bitcoin Store that helps non-technical people open and operate a free hosted store that sells in bitcoin in less than an hour. Basically, a one-click to free bitcoin store project.

All the tech is done, I'm getting volunteers to polish the UI and scripts and help me test. I will be launching it before the end of April.
