Revelation of  $8,515,000 Price Paid for Gold.com Ramps Up Buzz for Andrew Miller's Appearance at NamesCon Global

Coming off last month's news that Hilco Digital Assets Managing Director Andrew Miller helped broker the $15.5 million sale of Chat.com last year (the 2nd highest publicly reported domain sale of all time), anticipation has been building for Andrew's keynote session at the upcoming NamesConGlobal conference in Austin, Texas (June 5-8). Thanks to George Kirikos, who just reported the previously undisclosed $8,515,000 price paid for Gold.com in March, the needle on the buzz meter has just been pinned to the right because Andrew's hands are all over this one too. 

In a post on his FreeSpeech.com site, George revealed he found the exact price paid for the domain in an SEC filing made by the parent company of subsidiary JM Bullion, the new owner of the domain. Long time readers know George has been bringing gems like this to light for over 20 years now. That information has given the industry at large a huge boost in credibility as these sales clearly demonstrate how valuable these top tier assets can be. 

With the sale a public record now, Andrew was able to confirm George's reporting of yet another blockbuster win for the Hilco team. Coincidentally, Andrew also happens to be the subject of our current cover story, titled The Sound of Success: How Record Breaking Domain Deal Maker Andrew Miller Keeps Hitting the Highest Notes. If you aren't already familiar with his story (one we first chronicled in one of our earliest cover stories back in 2005), checking out the new profile will give you some great insight into how Miller has been consistently orchestrating deals at this level for so long.

We will be adding the Gold.com sale to our charts when our next bi-weekly domain sales report comes out Wednesday evening (May 15). It will take over the top spot on our Year To Date Top Domain Sales Chart, at a price that is over 7 times higher than the current leader. Gold.com will also take a place among the 10 highest verified publicly reported sales of all time.
