George Kirikos Uncovers $2.2 Million Sale of Forge.com - One of 5 Biggest Domain Sales Reported Year to Date

If it is a weekend George Kirikos is likely looking through SEC filings to see if he can uncover yet another previously unreported blockbuster domain sale. That proved true again this morning when George reported his latest major find. As reported on his FreeSpeech.com blog, Kirikos uncovered a  $2,202,000 sale of Forge.com that was completed in the 3rd quarter of 2021. George found the proof in this SEC filing submitted by the buyer, private securities marketplace Forge Global. As Kirikos also noted, Forge announced plans to go public in a $2 billion SPAC deal they announced in September.

We will be charting this sale in our next bi-weekly Domain Sales Report that will be published Wednesday evening (December 22). Assuming no larger sale is reported before then, this will rank as the 5th biggest publicly reported domain sale of the year to date. It is the eight domain sale of $2 million or more reported thus far in 2021 (many others reached or surpassed that level that were not reported due to non-disclosure agreements).
