Confirms Acquisition of for Mainnet Launch

Recently, I reported on the sale of, a highly valuable name brokered by Media Options on behalf of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC).

The domain, which at one point had an asking price of $1.5 million based on a cached Google page, changed hands in a deal facilitated by, according to WHOIS history.

The domain moved into a privacy-protected GoDaddy account, but I speculated that payment and cryptocurrency platform may have been the buyer.

My guess was correct, as recently announced the planned launch of the company’s CRO Mainnet on March 25th, 2021. The project will be hosted on with a Coin (CRO) as it’s native currency.

Here is a snippet of’s announcement about the forthcoming project:

Following our announcement of the 70 billion CRO burn, we continue to aggressively pursue full decentralization of the network. We believe that the world needs a fully decentralized, open-source, public chain with high speed and low fees.

In line with the spirit of decentralization, the Mainnet will be launched as the Chain with Coin (CRO) as its native currency. Chain is a public, open-source and permissionless blockchain – a decentralized network designed to be a public good that helps drive mass adoption of blockchain technology. Following more than 2 years of research and development, 2 testnets (Thaler and Croeseid) and a successful Mainnet Dry-Run Competition (Crossfire), the Chain is now ready for launch.
