BTC.com is the highest publicly reported sale of a Bitcoin or cryptocurrency related domain name.
According to NameBio.com, the sale was brokered by Domain Guardians, who are now part of the Evergreen group, in August 2014 for $1,000,000. DNJournal.com also reported the sale at the time, and listed the buyer as GAWMiners, although the domain is currently registered under privacy protection.
When the sale was made, the price of a single Bitcoin was around $550, so it would be very interesting to see what the domain would fetch in today's market.
In May 2015, a new website was launched on the domain. Today, the BTC.com site provides details about the latest Bitcoin blocks mined, pool hashrates and the status of the network. It also features various statistics, tools, apps and a wallet for Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.
Bitcoin to the Moon is a blog dedicated to following the original cryptocurrency on a journey to its ultimate destination.
