Browsing through Crunchbase can have some unexpected results. While doing some research for another article, I was looking through a list of recently funded companies when I saw "Aesthetic (formerly Plato Design). What stood out to me was the fact that the company had managed to secure the use of the premium Aesthetic.com domain name.

Founded in 2018, Aesthetic started life as Plato Design a name that, according to the company, was expected to be temporary. The name Plato came, as you might expect, from the Greek philosopher and his theory of forms, which inspired Plato Design's founders.

Yap.com

This three-letter .COM name moved from Tucows to GoDaddy under privacy protection at the start of February 2020, and started to display a website for Yap, an all-in-one digital banking app that was recently founded in Dubai . This acquisition of Yap.com was an upgrade from Yap.co, a domain that Yap seems to have acquired prior to launching.
