Efty’s Doron Vermaat Sells Seal.io for $60,000


The .io aftermarket has been hot since 2020, thanks to broader end-user adoption of the extension, especially in projects relating to cryptocurrency, NFTs, or Web 3.0 in general.

NameBio has recorded $5.8 million worth of .io sales in the past 2 years, with the $230,000 sale of Mint.io leading the way.

This year, the top sale so far is Formula.io for $88,000, but we now have a new second-largest sale in the form of Seal.io

Domain investor and Efty co-founder, Doron Vermaat has announced the sale of Seal.io for $60,000, beating the $50,000 sale of Mode.io (closed at Sedo) for second place.

The deal was announced by Doron via Twitter:

Seal.io, acquired by Doron in 2020, held a $69,000 BIN price at Efty. Initially, the buyer came in with a $30,000 offer, which was immediately declined without countering. Ultimately, both parties agreed to a $60,000 price.

The deal was closed at Escrow.com and the domain name transferred to its new owner at a Google account under Whois privacy protection.

At $60,000, this was an outlier sale for Doron – a subject that I wrote about for Efty on their blog.
