RightOfTheDot and .HipHop are in the House at Miami NFT Week Where a Digital Asset Auction is Underway

I got a note from Marketing Director Scott Pruitt at RightOfTheDot.com filling me on on some new developments at the popular domain auction house founded by Monte Cahn and sharing some news about the .hiphop gTLD that Monte and his partners acquired and relaunched last year. .Hiphop took a big step forward Thursday (March 30) when the TLD went live at the world's biggest domain registrar, GoDaddy. This marks the first time in years that .hiphop domains are available to register.

RightOfTheDot and .Hiphop are also sponsoring the Miami NFT Week conference that opened today and runs through Sunday (April 2) at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center. In conjunction with the show, RightOfTheDot is staging its latest Online Digital Asset Auction, featuring premium digital assets, domain names and NFTs.  The auction is underway now and and will run until 2pm (U.S. EDT) on Wednesday (April 4). That also makes this a perfect time to check out RightOfTheDot's new bidding platform that includes apps for IOS and Android.


In a related note, RightOfTheDot (ROTD) is now accepting domain name and NFT submissions for the in-person live digital asset auction they will be running at the upcoming 2023 NamesCon Global conference in Austin, Texas. With NamesCon running concurrently with the new Cloudfest USA conference May 31-June 3, this auction will put digital assets it front of what is likely to be one ROTD's biggest audiences ever.

You can bet the .hiphop crew will also be in the house at NamesCon Global, just as they were last year when we caught up with them at the company's booth in the Exhibit Hall.

(L to R): .Hiphop Partner and  Chief Legal Officer Jeff Neuman, Partner Monte Cahn and Director of Marketing Scott Pruitt. The 3rd partner in the enterprise, Ajene Watson, was also at the show.
