George Kirikos Uncovers $1.945 Million Sale of Exodus.com - One of Top 3 Domain Sales Reported Year to Date

Domain industry veteran George Kirikos has a long history of finding previously unreported blockbuster domain sales, often while examining corporate SEC filings required by the U.S. government. George uncovered yet another huge sale that he reported on his FreeSpeech.com blog and closely followed Twitter feed on Sunday (May 30). In a recent SEC filing (page 21), Kirikos discovered that Exodus Movement, a company involved in the crypto field disclosed that they had purchased the Exodus.com domain name for USD $1,945,000 in the first quarter of 2021 (that page shows a rounded down figure of $1.9 million, but the exact number was listed directly on their balance sheet found on page 9 of the filing).

Soon after George's revelation, MediaOptions.com CEO Andrew Rosener, who is perennially one of the industry's top brokers, confirmed on George's Twitter feed that his company had brokered the Exodus.com sale. MediaOptions normally does not share sales information but since this one was now on the public record he could disclose his company's role in the transaction.

When we publish our next bi-weekly domain sales report June 9th Exodus.com will be added to our charts. As of this writing the sale ranks as the third biggest domain sale reported so far this year, trailing only Christmas.com at $3.15 million and Angel.com at $2 million. Thanks again to Mr. Kirikos for finding and sharing this information. Every sale of this magnitude that comes to light raises awareness of how inherently valuable great domains are and that helps us all.
