Brisbane, QLD (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
Domain Guardians, a leading premium domain name broker, announced today that they have been appointed the exclusive broker for the domain BTC.com.
The term BTC is the commonly used abbreviation for the crypto-currency Bitcoin. As such, this rare domain asset provides an exceptional branding opportunity for new and existing companies within the Bitcoin space.
Whether youre a Bitcoin startup or existing company wishing to solidify your authority and optimize your marketing, there is no better opportunity than acquiring BTC.com, said Jen Sale, Co-Founder of Domain Guardians. In the right hands, this domain has the power to change the Bitcoin landscape and establish a market leader.
According to Elliot Silver of DomainInvesting.com, there have been a number of recent Bitcoin-related domain sales at various aftermarket venues1 and via private sale. Notable reported sales include BTCS.com, which was acquired by Bitcoin Shop Inc. for an undisclosed amount in February2, and BitcoinWallet.com, which sold for $250,000, also in February3.
Bitcoin experts agree that this opportunity has great potential. For Bitcoin related companies, BTC.com is the best domain name currently available for sale that I am aware of, said Roger Ver, Bitcoin Evangelist. Any business using BTC.com would almost certainly catch a lot of extra attention because of this premier domain name. Niko Younts, seller of BitcoinWallet.com, also stated, Owning a great brand can pay major dividends. There are many savvy individuals watching this space closely, and it is guaranteed to get far more competitive in the future. Ask yourself: Do you want to exist or do you want to win? Owning BTC.com is winning, period.
Two and three letter .COM domain names are rare, memorable, marketable and growing in popularity, as evident by the recent acquisitions of MI.com for $3.6M4, WAN.com for $800,0005 and BOX.com for nearly $1M6. Major brands and market leaders have also employed abbreviated .COM domains, including A&E Television Network with Bio.com, and former Digg CEO, Matt Williams, has branded his new projects company with Pro.com.
In our fast-paced mobile world, a shorter name is always best," stated Domain Guardians Co-Founder, Mike Robertson. "There's a reason companies are buying and using 2-3 letter domain names - they are quick to type and easy to remember. BTC.com ticks all of the right boxes!
