Betting and gambling domain names have been hot property for a while. NameBio lists domain sales such as eBet.com for $1.35 million, GoBet.com for $850,000, and BettingOdds.com for $487,687.
Another six-figure betting domain has now been closed by domain investor James Booth with the help of brandable marketplace Squadhelp. Booth announced via Twitter that he sold BetU.com for $180,000:
Just sold – https://t.co/KPTsbq48tA for $180,000 via @squadhelp

DomainIQ’s WHOIS history suggests that BetU.com was acquired by Booth in July 2020 from someone based in China.
Archive.org reveals that BetU.com had a $199,999 asking price in February 2021.
As of publishing, the identity of the buyer of BetU.com is unknown. There is a sports betting company called BetU that offers a crypto betting platform secured by smart contracts and powered by its own BetU coin. That company is currently operating on BetU.io. Could BetU have performed an upgrade from BetU.io to BetU.com?
