wait... someone gave up a $1 million equity stake for a domain name?
Doesn't add up now does it.

what doesn't add up?  here are actual dollar values paid for domains (adjust for inflation if you want to see where bitcoin.com fits in):

Sex.com and porn.com "actual dollar values". Get out, would you? Unless you want to buy a bridge or something.

you don't pay much attention to the news do you?  the legal wranglings over the sex.com domain were well covered by traditional media outlets.  hell it even had a book written about it.

so about that bridge...

I think the ducks come where the bridge is. I'd have to check.
Do the domains come with their websites? The sex.com one is particularly fetchy and could justify the price. What do you starstruck folks call the worthless things, "virtual real estate" was it? Well, if I had a piece of real-real estate worth 13 million real-real dollars (as opposed to play-pretend circlejerk dollars in the latest and greatest ponzi scheme) I probably wouldn't keep a fucking $575.50 outhouse on it. Just my 2 cents.

I've had an account with Dwolla for testing purposes since the second week they were online and just noticed I never did receive any notice of TOS changes, which is usually standard for everybody. Unless it notified you when you logged in.

Lol ninja editing the TOS then pretending nothing happened. Who in their right mind is going to allow their financial insitution to integrate FiSync, the supposed instant Dwolla loading and withdraw if there's rampant ACH chargebacks.

Has anyone every actually gone to sex.com, porn.com?  People go to google.com, facebook.com, amazon.com.  Those domain names had no value before a team of people built a business around that brand.  Paying an outrageous amount of money for a domain name marks someone as having little business sense.  Instead of wasting that money they should have hired lawyers to read terms of service, or hired programmers to make a better website.

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

Those domains get what is known as type-in traffic - and such traffic is considered extremely valuable.

Excuse me, I have trouble keeping track of time. In what year is this conversation taking place?

Hmm. 2004? no wait. 1999? hmm. Oh! I know! http://www.whattimeisit.com/ says 2012! You see what I did there? I just typed something in, no search engine needed.

MPOE, i'm not sure why you have such a visceral reaction to the sale of domains, internet traffic and ad revenue, when it seems you don't have much knowledge or understanding of the business.

i don't have any information about the current revenue of sex.com, but at the time of the sale, in the court proceedings it was estimated to be generating between $50-500,000 per month.

~2-3 months ago, I asked someone involved. No tangible progress.

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal
