I’ve heard of these auctions but never attended on before. The idea is to have a live event that is also online, so anybody who has registered can participate from anywhere.
I’ve got hundreds of names aquired over the years so it’ll be interesting to see how much these names fetch here at auction.
Monte, Moniker’s top guy, is introducing the event now.
Hey, I just won a $200 credit for having signed up online. (didn’t use it – few name I’d want in this batch)
Reverselinesofcredirt.co and earlybirdiscounts.com just sold for 200 each…
Wow, shoppingservices.com just fetched 30,000 from room bidding.
They closed ctr.com , not going to allow bigs under 50k . Realestatedirect.com closed at 100k! Seems very, very high to me.
Ad.com: Wow, this just went for $350,000 after an online bid for 300k.
Update – this did NOT sell and I’m not understanding what happened. The process is frantic and I think designed more to get people in the frenzy of bidding than anything.
I’m wondering how you regulate the ease with which you could boost prices with fake bids (I do NOT think they are doing that since the credibility hit would ruin them forever, but it’s odd seeing bids come in from the internet, invisible).
OK, so the auction went way over time, then to add an insult to the deal when I got to the Vivid party thrown by Moniker and Webmaster Radio at 9pm the place was way too loud to talk, the “open bar” was not open, the plentiful food was not there, and there was some VIP thing going for … the special people?
Not impressed at all.
