Generic animal domains are versatile enough to be used in various industries. Panther.com is used by a data security company, Elephant.com hosts an insurance company, and Shark.com is owned by a former pro golfer.
Versatility means that when a premium animal domain sells, it can leave you guessing as to who bought it.

Until recently, Monkey.com has been dormant, sat in a privacy-protected GoDaddy account. Now, the domain resolves and it’s hosting a cryptocurrency project.
The buyer looks to be Hotcoin Global, a cryptocurrency exchange based in Australia. Currently, Hotcoin operates at Hotcoin.com but as of publishing, Monkey.com hosts an almost carbon-copy of Hotcoin.com’s website.
Could a rebrand be on the way?
